A wolf in sheep's clothing. What part of "Thou Shalt Not Steal" didn't you understand, "pastor". This perp is just like Judas, taking his thirty pieces of silver and betraying Jesus. Let him pay his debt and serve his time--and then stay out of the ministry becuase he has disqualified himself completely.

He should have been a priest because they have more money. He could have really lived high on the hog.

Pastors stealing from their churches and diddling with their congregants is likely much more common than anyone suspects.....the sheep don't like to admit they've been fleeced and it often doesn't see the light of day. BUT remember, those pastors are doing the Lord's work....just ask them. And they are the same ones that just insist that we have the Ten Commandments posted in the classroom and the kids be forced to say the Lord's prayer.
