Lessons You Need to Learn from Jack Schaap

Jack Schaap, former pastor of First Baptist Church of Hammond, will be sentenced today after pleading guilty to having sex with an underage girl. This entire situation is horrible: a powerful pastor taking advantage of a girl from his congregation. We need to be praying for the victim, the families involved, and for the church.

While it is easy to say “that would never happen to me” the truth is that no pastor wakes up one morning having decided to blow up his family, his church, and do something that will land him in jail. Falls like Schaaps, and the other highly public failures of the recent past, take time to develop, and start with the most minor compromise. This morning, on Ministry Briefing, we discuss how to avoid moral failures like this.

How are YOU guarding against the tiny compromises?
