Megachurch pastor sued by couple for $6.6 Million

A new lawsuit by a woman and her husband claims a pastor of a large church “purposefully introduced her into his life of depraved pornography, adultery, scheming, lies and the abandonment of her marriage and family with the intent that it would lead to the destruction of her marriage and family, which he knew would be going against everything she ever believed in or truly desired.” The couple is seeking $6.6 million for breach of fiduciary duty, intentional infliction of emotional distress, negligent infliction of emotional distress, and other claims.

Folks… this HAS TO STOP.

How?  I don’t know.

1.  If this pastor did this, we HAVE to find ways to stop it.  There is NO WAY that the allegations levied in this article can be true without huge warning signs and red flags SOMEWHERE along the way.  Is there?

2.  If this is a total fabrication from the couple, how do we defend ourselves from this type of thing? Video surveillance of counseling sessions?

How do you prove things in a he said, she said situation?

If you’re innocent, you could be an hour away from a news story like this breaking about YOU.

If you’re guilty of this kind of conduct, you have no right being a pastor.

Either way, you’re vulnerable.

How do you protect yourself from:

1.  Falling into a sin like this; or

2.  a False accusation that could ruin your reputation, family, and ministry?

Have you thought about this?  What are your thoughts?
