We all make mistakes. His is not worse than ours. He is still a man of God and the devil probably attacks people in leadership even harder than he attacks others. Pray for him to get back to God, at one point he was right or he would not have chosen to be a pastor.

Yes he's just human. I agree with that point.

Jesus will forgive him after he has repented. That means after he stops pursuing prostitutes, secretaries and sex outside his marriage. This is the 3rd time this pastor has done this.

In Timothy and Titus God is very clear about church leadership and the qualifications of such. This pastor does not meet God's guidelines for leadership. He should be removed from leadership and is not. He is still in ministry.

I ask you this:
How would you feel if your wife or daughter, someone elses wife or daughter were alone with him ministering to them? Would you be comfortable with that?

As far as Matt. 28 is concerned, does this behavior advance or hinder the Kingdom of God? Everyone in this city knows about this guy.

Well...it has been 6 years since all of this took place......it is LONG overdue.....that we let this go. And I can say, as the daughter, who has walked with my family through this situation......that some people are as hateful today as they were then. 6 years later.....and when I walk through Walmart with my children......people are STILL rude, nosey, and ignorant. I will say that were REAL people of GOD who walked with us......and for the ones that left or gave up on my family, we forgive you and understand. Things like this cause people to make decisions based on what they feel, believe, and even what they dont understand at times. At the end of the day.......I wanted to say that LIFE happens to everyone. at some point or another.....LIFE happens. To the condemning folks on here that have a very hateful opinion, its ok. You are entitled to feel the way you want to. Just know this......our family is ok. We are not a perfect family, but we love and support our Dad because HE IS OUR DAD! And no matter what mistakes, choices, or decisions anyone in our family makes....WE ARE FAMILY! We love unconditionally, forgive unconditionally, and move forward unconditionally. My dad is a great man.....this one moment should not be his defining moment. For some.....this is what they remember.....for others, they remember a very giving man who served our community for almost 30 years. It would be nice if people could put this to rest, move forward......and allow him to live his life at peace. We believe in a GOD who loves, accepts and forgives....no matter who it is, no matter what the sin. Time to move forward people......please. Let our family move forward.

That is a lie. Jesus warns us of many false teachers coming in the last days. One of he signs of such a false teacher is:

2 Peter 2:14
Having eyes full of adultery, and that cannot cease from sin; beguiling unstable souls: an heart they have exercised with covetous practices; cursed children:
