27 IMMORALITY (In The Church Leadership Especially) Is Devastating To The Body Of Christ And Causes Unbelievable Hurt!

28 I Thought I Would Go National And Mention Some ‘Great’ Spiritual Leaders Who Crashed Morally…

29 But After 25 Years In This Area Of Southwest Florida, I Could Stay Local When I Think Of Spiritual Leaders Who Have Crashed And Burned!

30 One Church Not Only Had The Pastor Commit Adultery, But Two Chairmen Of The Deacons As Well

31 Another Church Didn’t Have One, But Two Different Pastors Have Their Big Rigs Run Off The Road

32 Another Church Had It’s Senior Pastor Commit Adultery

33 And Yet Another Church Had It’s Senior Pastor Commit Adultery

34 These Were All Local Pastors Within A 20 Mile Radius

35 And These Are Just A FEW That I Actually Know About…

36

37

38 285 MINISTRY LEADERS WERE INTERVIEWED

39 They All Had One Thing In Common…

40 They All Committed Adultery While In Leadership Positions Of Ministry

41 There Were Three Common Denominators Between Them They had gotten away from daily time with God in the Word and in Prayer They tended to be loners and they had no one that they were really close to They never thought they would NEVER cheat on their spouse They had gotten away from daily time with God in the Word and in Prayer They tended to be loners and they had no one that they were really close to They never thought they would NEVER cheat on their spouse

42 228 Of These 285 Had The Affair With Someone They Were Counseling!

43 THAT’S 80%!

44 It’s Not Just The Pastor Either…

45 satan Loves It When We Think This Will Never Happen To Me, Or Who Would Really Care If It Did…because I’m Not The Pastor!
