    I have known this man for most of my life. he is a good man and he has fallen to the enemy! We all have at one time or another, so he without sin cast the first stone! I am praying for him, his wife and children. God the Father will heal them all in time.

    So sad, a preacher, someone looked up to fell into temptation and did this. I pray for his wife and child. He had no reason to do this. How terribly sad.

    this man and his family needs prayer. it's hard when we allow the enemy to come in. all have sinned and come short of the glory of God. we don't need to throw stones. we need to forgive as we have been forgiven!!!!
