Please read the bible on how God deals with unrepentant leaders. Look at Saul, and Aaron's sons who did not follow God's laws and were struck dead I could give many more examples. Please understand that a pastor is God's representative to His people and God takes that role very seriously. God sees everyone's hearts and if they repent of their sin and that means making right all the wrongs you have committed and start doing what is right in God's eyes then there is forgiveness. Then there is the separate issue of consequences of sin .If there is no true repentance then there is judgment from God. God does not tolerate someone claiming to be His representative and them living a life of unrepentant sin and neither should we. It is not our job throw stones, just to recognize sin and have no part of it or with the person claiming to be a Christian but living a life opposite of Christianity.

1Cor 5:11-13
But now I have written to you not to keep company with anyone named a brother, who is sexually immoral, or covetous, or an idolater, or a reviler, or a drunkard, or an extortioner—not even to eat with such a person.

12 For what have I to do with judging those also who are outside? Do you not judge those who are inside? 13 But those who are outside God judges. Therefore “put away from yourselves the evil person.

If we claim to be a Christian we need to forgive anyone who has wronged us or we are in sin and in danger of not being forgiven by God. We should not harbor any ill will toward that person, God will deal with and judge any wrong that was done to us, He is our Father and He is just and righteous. If Christ forgave us of our sin then we need to forgive others.

Sometimes it appears that people are sinning and getting away with it but they are not. God sees and knows everything.

<quoted text>when you steal from a church, write yourself a check, write your lover a check, etc.. Etc... You should be tried. You will be. These investigations usually take about a year but it will come. Stealing from famies barely getting by because they are giving money they don't have so one family can live like they're rich has a price to pay. It is obvious there is no repentance or apologies from the pastor, his family, or his mistress. I have already forgiven this family but there are always consequences to ones actions. This is not condemnation, it is pointing out righteous sins and hiding those accountable. Same as when a chd does something wrong, you still love them but discipline is a part of love. I loved the pastor he owes the church and all the famies he has hurt an apology.
Is it true that the investigation you speak of is why manny left Bennett to represent himself?
please explain

Could you please explain what he has done to make things right by his WIFE KIM, HIS biological daughter, and the man who he harassed and is continuing to harass?

Just a small list of what he is doing would be helpful. This is not about forgiveness this about repenting and being accountable for ones sins.

If a man murders a man, we do not say hey just forgive and move on. We prosecute that person and hope that they repent and get right with God. It is no difference when a person steals or breaks any other law. There are consequences PERIOD!

has anything good happened to Bennett Smith since he met JY? Seems to me he had a faithful wife who loved him and did everything for him, a close and happy family, a great job, respect and admired by many, he was a leader, did not lack in anything, took expensive trips, kids were almost grown, had a big beautiful house, and a ton of friends.

What does he have now??

Because of JY, he has none of that.

Jenn has ruined Bennett. He should have never have left kim. Kim was amazing, the best thing that ever happened to him. Kim is the rock and always has been. If he gives up on her for a slut and whore named Jenn he deserves what is coming to him because kim is far above anything Jenn will ever be.

Kimmie Sue is not afraid of Bennett and has not sought legal assistance or protection order because it just isn't true. She is planning her defense of her participation of wrong doing. My guess is she will claim abuse and she was afraid of him. Blah. Blah. Blah. We all know who ran that place. My question is .... Is Paul helping with his moms defense.
