The only way to be holy is have The Holy Spirit
What God is in is Holy and whoever represents God lives holy as a result of the help of the Spirit. If that person turns from God, he will withdraw his Spirit. And the unclean spirit that went out from that person when they were Born Again will return and bring 7 more worse t to abide in the forsaken man. his last state is worse than his first.

Hmmmm...doesnt sound like a preacher to me! Sounds like a wolf in sheeps clothing. Stay clear of that man!

Maine:Finding something on the pastor is not what this is all about. And that wrinkled dollar that was placed in the church basket could have been from a homeless person who wanted to give something in the church. He/she is not rich like you are.
no we have no right to judge anyone but we are to keep our eyes and ears open and to use wisdom and understanding in our daily dealings. God does not leave us ignorant.

He was full of lust and he gave in to it. We cannot be too careful when it comes to our kids. Dont know how young she was but I would have hated for that to have been my kid. Pastor or no pastor. I stick to my guns. Too many leaders in the churches are abusing their power. Priests take the cake.God forbid. Its a shame.

This pastor is human and made a mistake. But he should not be encouraged in his sin because he is a pastor. His life is to be more exemplary than his followers. But he is still capable of falling. If it was my daughter he lusted with, he is going to have to see me. Pastor or no pastor. Some pastor believe they are Gods themselves.This attitude is all wrong and very unchristian.
---Robyn on 6/5/07

The same way anyone else does. By giving in to his lust.

Your answer is in the Bible. The fourth chapeter of John talks about a woman who met Jesus at the well. She was forgiven of her past. David sinned with sex, lies, deception and murder involving a married woman yet he became king. The woman caught in adultery was told to go and sin no more. It's all about forgiveness. If any human being could live a sinless life, Jesus would not have had to go to the cross.

I hope that all of the judgmental, sinless people are praying for him. We are so quick to get holy. Yet we gossip, come to God's house with attitudes, cheat God out of his money with that same little crumpled dollar every Sunday but we want to crucify this preacher for falling.
God can always find something on us.

Is his sin any worse than those of people who gossip, take a pen home from the office, get drunk, are gluttonous, mistreat their spouse etc. Sin is sin is sin is sin.

A wise Christian woman once said, Satan is after the ministers because they represent a real challenge, sort of a "notch on his gun." He already has the sinners in his back pocket, so no real challenge there.
---Nan on 9/14/05

Pray for that Pastor. He will just suffer the consequences of what he is doing. But as believers of Jesus, i just pray that he will not be a stumbling block in your/our christian faith. Let us just look up to Jesus who is the author and finisher of our faith.

Because he is imperfect, gave in to temptation and the lies of the devil. Many great leaders have fallen from grace through the lusts of the flesh, many convinced God was urging them on. It's deception, it's written in God's word about these type of leaders. I hope he repents and comes to his senses.

I am sure that if a pastor is really born again with Water and Spirit he would not have affair with a yong girl. I am sure that the Holy Spirit who is in his life will contro his life.
---Jerry on 9/14/05

Why is it that sexual sin bothers us much more than any other? It is unlikely that this is the only sin he has committed but it might be the only one you know about. Most of our sins are secret sins but just because we think we've 'got away with it' because others don't know, does not make us any less imperfect than one caught in adultery. Remember what Jesus said to those about to stone a woman in the same position. He needs to repent, yes, but don't we all?
---Xanthi on 9/14/05

Anytime there's someone who claims to be a Christian but lives life differently than expected, he/she is easily labeled as a fake christian. I gotta say that God sure does put a lot of FAKE Christians in this world.. from my experience, I'd say about 99.9% are fake.
---David on 9/14/05

He is a fallen minister, who has succombed to his fleshly desires, and as long as he is in that state, he is a backslider. Let us pray the Father in Jesus's name that by grace he will recover his spiritual sight, and return to the sheepfold with true repentance. And in the meantime, let us all that think we stand, take heed that we ourselves do not fall. God's grace never fails, and his mercy endures forever. He is faithful to forgive all who calls upon Him. clara7687

Well we as christians know that what this Pastor has done is wrong. But, as Jesus told the men that caught the woman in adultery, ye without sin cast the first stone. If they have repented, Jesus has forgiven them.
---Mary on 9/13/05

How is it that people do any of the reprehensible things they do. It all comes down to the love of self at the expense of others.
---ralph7477 on 9/13/05

Always keep in mind, where there is a real, there is a fake. He gave into lust. The church people should kick him down, while he is down, but need to lift him up. Show him the way back on the straight and narrow. And the woman pray that she would get saved. don't cast stones because of someone sliped. Pray for both of them.
---Rebecca_D on 9/13/05

Jesus said there is only one that was Good and that was God. We all struggle with our sinful nature. There isn't any excuse for this behavior and it is up to this pastor to repent. Sometimes I think that some people have a hard time differentiating between the christian love they know they should feel and the wordly love that instigates sinful activity. I see no real excuse but I do know a real answer and that is Jesus. Pray for him and God will do the rest.

The love of the heart is where ones treasure is and sadly it is usually "self". Preaching holiness does not make one,a man or a woman of holiness.
---Rhond3434 on 9/13/05

He obviously does not practise what he preaches. The women who heads up the only christian singles group in my town is same way. She tells others what to do but smokes and has affairs as well. The singles group went from almost 20 peopole down to 6 and guess what? most of the 6 are men. I am sure they are only there to see what improper outfit she is wearing each week.
I would look for a new church group. One where what is preached is practised and believed.
---Marla on 9/13/05

The word tell us, that if we "resist" the devil he will flee from us. The scriptures, also says, that when we are drawn into sin, we are drawn away by our "own" lust. Well, the more we entertain thoughts of sin; we will more than likely engage in it if we do not cast down imaginations....any high thought that exalts itself above the knowledge of bring those thoughts into the captivity to the obedience of Christ. dedra5875
