YES, THIS IS AN ONGOING PROBLEM, AND SHOULD BE ADDRESSED. AS AN EVANGELIST AND PASTOR, I FEEL THAT IF AN EVANGELIST IS FOUND TO BE SLEEPING WITH MEMBERS AND WILL NOT STOP, HE OR SHE SHOULD NOT BE INVITED BACK. THE WORD OF GOD IS THE WORD OF GOD FOR THE MEMBERS AND THE LEADERS! WE HAVE AN OBLIGATION AS SHEPHARDS TO PROTECT THE FLOCK FROM PREDATORS OR THOSE WHO COME TO FLEECE GOD'S FLOCK.
Pastors have a responsibility to protect their flock. As pastors and leaders we are accountable to God for what and who we allow to influence His people. The church is not ours, it's the Lord's, and He has given us a code of conduct.
Bro. Harris, It seems that we as members and leaders in the Body of Christ don't want to deal with things that are just plan wrong and sinful in the sight of God. It does not matter who it is, we all need to be like Jesus and start turning over some tables if necessary and start taking a strong stance against some of this stuff. Will we continue to close our eyes and act as if nothing is wrong or as if nothing is happening? Somebody's life/soul may be lying in the balance while we make up our minds to take the right road. Some things may get us excommunicated, but we were never intended to be in a popularity contest. We need to have the boldness to do the right thing, no matter who it is...(my 2cent)
