A pastor, who has been influential on me, recently resigned from his position at his church after evidence of an affair surfaced. In the past I’ve normally been embarrassed when I’ve heard of high profile pastors falling into sin. This time I felt sadness and fear. I believe the man loves Jesus and has a passion for the local church. He’s also a sinner capable of doing devastating things…just like me.
The following list is essentially my way of processing this news.
Things Married Men Shouldn’t Do With Women Who Aren’t Their Wife
1) Hold private conversations with confidential information
2) Ride in a car alone
3) Exchange private emails
4) Hold private online conversations
5) Confide emotionally
6) Confide secrets
7) “Vent” about their wife
8) Meet in private
