This is just wrong. He shouldn't be allowed to preach again.

These people never learn. The tail is not that good and not worth their job and career.

Ah the sin of the clergy: alcohol or sex. Pentecostals are the worst offenders.

He's a sinner. Like everyone else. No better. No worse. This should not bar him from being a pastor and preaching the Word Of God.

When addressing the man who is the subject of this thread, isn't it blasphemous to address him without puting the word "Most" in front of the word "Reverend" ? After all this person was appointed to his sacred position by an infallible process as dictated by an infallible book authored by an omniscient deity. I hope I have saved some of you from the fires of an eternal hell provided by a loving god by pointing this out :)

In answer to your question: "No".

As for the rest of your post, thank you for showing you know nothing of what you're talking about.

I'm sorry Daniel if my attempt to lighten the thread with a little humor offended you.

I understand that it must have been troubling to your spiritual world view to attack me which was undoubtedly difficult for you to reconcile with your professed christian beliefs of love and compassion. have a nice day

Your presumptuous heart has deceived you Obadiah 3 Proverbs 8:13 quotes GOD as saying,"I hate arrogant pride,"Proverbs 11:2 proclaims,"When pride comes,disgrace follows,but with humility comes wisdom."Proverbs 13:10 adds arrogance leads to nothing but strife,but wisdom is gained by those who take advice,"and in the familiar words of Proverbs 16:18 "Pride comes before destruction,and an arrogant spirit before a fall.Let me see ....GOD hates it,it brings disgrace,it breeds quarrels,and it points us to destruction like a compass needle seeking north.The first shove to remove the obstacle of pride is to view it as the vicious enemy it is.

This only proves that the pastor is human like everyone else. He is subject to temptation and sometimes fails to live as one should.

He is no better than anyone else, nor worse.

What would Jesus say ? I think he would say: "Let he among you who is without sin cast the first stone."
