I'm curious to see how the rest of the major evangelical leaders protray Ted, will he be met with negative, or will they extend to him a message of grace and truth? Another question I have is; should one man have that many people to lead spiritually?


I'm curious as well to see how the rest of the leadership responds to him. I suppose in his church world this is pretty big in the "hierarchy" of sins. And will there be redemption or just dismissal? The question about how many folks this guy is leading is an imprtant one. Power, authority, ambition (even for a 'good cause') have their temptations.

The Sheepcat

So many scandals have occurred when leaders--be they pastors of megachurches or televangelists or priests under lax bishops--have lacked effective oversight. And of course the phenomenon is hardly confined to clergy: any time someone becomes a law unto himself . . .

I doubt that he will become any kind of permanent pariah--and early signs suggest that the response will be full of grace and forgiveness. I certainly hope this is the case.

At the same time, for his own sake, I'm glad he's now got a panel of spiritual advisors who I expect will not be shy about asking him some really tough questions. One doesn't get this deep into trouble without practising a whole lot of rationalizations and self-deceptions.

I will be very interested to see what you find in his book.
