I know it's confusing, but were not supposed to put our faith in any man. A small percentage of people are sick and so I guess a small percentage of preachers are as well. They are human and this doesn't change that God still loves us and saves all sinners who call upon Him.

It is sad that this mans, who probably lived most of his life doing good, was human and sinned. Don't we all have sins that we are not proud of. Affairs, gambling, alcohol abuse, drug addictions, so many others. Yet this one sin will now define this man by people for the rest of his life. It may have been consensual, this girl was living with the family, it was wrong. All of our sins are wrong in god's eyes and lucky for us he is a forgiving and loving god. Let us not treat this man as though we are perfect!!!

It wasn't a one time thing. This had been on going for a year. Consensual or not, she was a minor. I have plenty of sins but not any are as bad as that!
