Jacksonville association seeks resignation of church with sex-offender preacher – Florida Baptist Witness


Interesting debate. While I believe in God’s forgiveness and the ability for lives to change, I also believe in wise decision making. In this case we have a guy who has left 9 churches due to allegations of sexual improprieties, and just recently finished a jail term for one offense. Does he need to be in the church community to receive God’s healing, sure. But not knowing all the specifics may I say this seems someone better placed under church discipline [personally I would allow him to attend my church, but only with 2 male members staying with him at all times he was at church events, as well as, his understanding that he stay away from any females in attendance. I would also demand that he be in counseling. Any infraction of the above stated rules would mean that he was asked to not come back to church, and that I would seek out and advise the pastor of any church he went after mine]  than any type of leadership [I would say he had disqualified himself for a long time].
