If you can't trust a pastor who can you trust. And he was supposed to be a man of god. Talk about betrayal

I think this is quite funny. If Jesus saves, why does he need so much money? Give your money to legitmate charities!

It's nice to read a church story that's not about inappropriate touching of children.

This shows the state of Christianity today. Don't think this isn't happening elswhere. However, not every church should be painted with the same brush. I hope he gets everything he deserves. He is accountable for every penny one way or the other. The damage done to church reputations with non believers will also be on his head and others who have done similar wrongs. True repentance and recompense must come as the first step. There can be no forgivness without it. The consequences for his soul is eternal.

Good one! My belief is that Jesus, as creator and ruler over everything doesn't need any money from us. But he expects us to give back a portion of what he allows us to have as an act of love and obedience.

Professional hucksters, con artists, Ponzi sales reps, life insurance/variable annuity salesmen, all share a common MO with Bible thumpers: obtain others peoples money using fear, greed, or stories.

In defense of the church, they went to police and made this a legal matter. That's much better than the stories that we hear too often of turning offenders loose to offend again elsewhere. I respect that they made this an individual (or two, counting his wife) issue rather than a church issue/cover-up.

This pastor must have been watching TBN (Trinity Broadcast Network). TBN is constantly begging for money promising riches from God in return for giving to them. The owners of TBN are super rich and lead lavish lifestyles.

Matthew 24:24 - For false Christs and false prophets will appear and perform great signs and miracles to deceive even the elect—if that were possible.

Matthew 7:15 - Watch out for false prophets. They come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ferocious wolves.

And the list goes on. Someone thought something was not right but didn't act on it. The bible tells us how to deal with these folks besides man's laws, 1 John 4:1 - Dear friends, do not believe every spirit, but test the spirits to see whether they are from God, because many false prophets have gone out into the world.

Unless he truly repents, he's doomed to hell, not to mention the dungeon they trow him in here on earth!

Never trust a preacher who has more than one suit.

I see your point, but it's difficult not to make it a "church" issue when he's the pastor chosen by the church's very structured organization in regard to ordaining and hiring.

There was a similar story in the news in the DC yesterday as well. Much larger amounts of money (around $600,000) and a secret wife and family to boot.

People see what they want to see. I think it's time for churches to quit turning a blind eye, myself.
The symbolic use of the word shepherd in religion is extremely appropriate here.

Baaaahhhhhhhhh!

Just about ANYBODY! I don't trust preachers any farther than I can throw them. You can't go a week without hearing about some preacher stealing, molesting, cheating on a spouse...etc. And those are just the ones that get CAUGHT.

Religion is a farce that too many people have been conditioned not to balk.

Well Praise Jesus!

That's right it's easier to ask forgiveness than permission. Sin all you like just say you're sorry afterwards and it's all okay God forgives you, but if you're not a Christian and you do the same thing you're sinner heading to hell. So you just have to say the magic words "Jesus, I want you in my life" BAM! Free ticket to sin and do all kinds of evil mean cruel things and be admitted into heaven.

There IS no consequence for his soul and he knows it. We'd better punish him on Earth because that's all the punishment he'll ever get.

He'll make up some sob story and ask for "forgiveness", which his fellow "Christians" will offer without hesitation.
He'll laugh at them behind their backs as he buys a plasma TV.
