Confessions of a Fallen Pastor

Tweet What happens when a pastor commits adultery? Is his life over? Does he lose his calling? Does God forsake him? Or is he suddenly free to live the life he always wanted to live?

Are Women More Sensitive To Sin?

Tweet I’ve noticed a trend in the past six years of doing this ministry. I often get emails from people who are committing adultery and are feeling guilty about it. The couple committing adultery are typically made up of a pastor and a woman he knows from his staff, a church member, or a family friend. Overwhelmingly, when a member of… Read more »

Being Clear About the Sin of Adultery

Stetzer’s Dangerous “400 Pastors Will Fall” Prediction

Tweet A few days ago, Dr. Ed Stetzer made a bold prediction regarding the Ashley Madison hack and church leaders on his blog at Christianity Today: “Based on my conversations with leaders from several denominations in the U.S. and Canada, I estimate that at least 400 church leaders (pastors, elders, staff, deacons, etc.) will be resigning Sunday.” Since that time,… Read more »

For Pastors on the Ashley Madison List

Tweet by Ray Carroll, with Roy Yanke from A few days ago I wrote a blog entitled, “My Pastor Was On The Ashley Madison List.” In it, I encouraged churches on how to handle the situation if they discovered their pastor was on the hacked website.

My Pastor Was On The Ashley Madison List

Tweet A few days ago, the list of people whose names were exposed as part of the hacking of the Ashley Madison site were released. Those names are now searchable on some websites and to those with a little computer savvy. It is easy to assume that a few heads will roll in the next few days. Probably not too many… Read more »

3 Common Questions About Fallen Pastors

Tweet I love helping (and am always more than happy to help) anyone who contacts me through this ministry, but I am closest to the messed up, confused world of the freshly fallen pastor.
