do you really want the whole Bible written here? thats a dumb statement just like your gossip without proof. did Russ say he cheated? I never heard anybody say that he said he did. and how do you know how that lady (betty) lives her life? that's a dumb gossip statement too! all of you all are gossiping and making accusations. anybody who says something positive, you all say they slept with Russ. That proves you spread dumb gossip and are no where near believable or trust worthy.
Your the one with the one liner quotes.
It's not gossip if it's the TRUTH. Ask Russ or a Deacon.

------Andy, you may as well forget it. These people don't want the truth and if they were shown the proof they would most likely still deny it. They would rather keep their head in the sand than to face reality. I still say these people who hide behind Christ's death on the cross and use it like a pass to sin and have the attitude that it doesn't matter because we all sin and God knows it so just overlook it, is just plain sick!!!!!!!!!

If that's true why did you bother to post?
Maybe it's because we know the TRUTH.

I really feel sorry for the community for what this man has done. They are the real victims putting their trust in him to lead the way and teach the word. I'm sure the lord will set him straight, but the damage pastors do when they stray away is sometimes unforgivable to put them back in that lead position. It took me 27 years to be able to enter the doors of my church after my pastor at the time strayed away from the lord. I hope the community pulls through and looks at the big picture.
Very disappointed

I am a young minister from the area who really looked up to Russ. As a teenager, I used to follow Russ to nearly every revival he preached. Of all men, I never thought he would be one who would fall. While I understand that all men sin, ministers are held to a higher standard. As James 3:1 says, those who lead and teach and preach will be held to a higher standard of judgment.

I think should Russ needs to take a long, slow, and careful read through Romans chapter 2.

May Christ constrain me by the power of his love and keep me from devastating my church and the lives of individuals who look up to me.

I am a Christian and yes the devil lead me to this website. I prayed the rumors I heard were not true. But I do know that I will pray for Russ and his family. None of us are without sin
But how can we expect God to forgive us when we turn our backs on a brother or sister in Christ. Shame on all of u for spreading anything that is going to fuel Satan's reign.

---Does the devil still have you on here, if not then he'll probably have you get back on here. I don't know that anyone has implied that they would not forgive him and he certainly needs all the prayer he can get. His wife and family are the main one's he has to get forgiveness from since he committed adultery. Also, the church since he was a pastor and suppose to be a leader and was doing this and then getting up in front of the church as if he was doing nothing and telling other people how to live a christian life according to the Bible. I still say the man has no business getting back up in front of a church for a long long time if ever. You shame everyone for getting on here and fueling this discussion and I think that is exactly what you just did! I quess it's O.K. though because the DEVIL MADE YOU DO IT!!!!!!!

Who are any of you to judge. I'm assuming none of you have made mistakes. Russ is an amazing pastor and if he has fallen...it is the job of his brothers and sisters in Christ to help him back up. No man is without sin....be the Christians you claim to be and stop dancing with satin.
. Amen!thank you for posting that its not for me to judge.I just hope if I ever stumble I have support not a slaughter!

Let me get this right. If you are a rotten, evil SOB, you're doing the devil's work. When you die, you go to hell and the devil punishes you for doing what he wanted you to do. This makes as much sense as your zombie god.

Since this a topic about the church, let me ask a question? Is it true, that the "chapel" is cuttin out programs that help people just so one person can keep a full time job? If is, then it's sad! Sad that a church that help hundreds of men, women, and children is going to throw that aside so one person could have a job! Aren't you all missing the point of a church? If not true then again here is a rumor that this so called church of God has put out there! Good job Watson! You just keep pushing people away instead of helping out the needy! I pray that God will help you all and your selfishness!

i am reading about this church, and i do not go there. i heard russ preach one time, and thought he was a great speaker. not knowing anything else, reading about this situation would make me not want to go to watson chapel, or hear russ preach ever again. the earlier comments about the way he judged some things at the church, and the comments about the deacons knowing about his activities make me think the church let him have too much a say in the way things went at that church...i hope if he didn't step down on his own, that he would have been asked to. i hope there are decent people who go to church there, for the decent reasons to go. anyone can be forgiven through the love of christ, but you can't expect to be let off the hook for that all-encompassing excuse, not think someone should be just because you like them. and if he had given into temptation just once, and realized it wasn't for him, i don't think his adultery would have turned into the community scandal it has. he must have liked what he was getting enough to keep it "up" for a while!!!

It's one and the same. The pastor is what brought the topic of the church up. Nice try at the diversion though.
