Over 400 Church Leaders To Resign Over Ashley Madison Hacks

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

 by Royce Christyn 

Men and women across the globe are being affected by the Ashley Madison hack.  The website, designed for married couples to cheat on one another, has had a ripple affect through entertainment an politics.  Now, reports are indicating that as many as 400 pastors, elders, deacons, and church staff members will resign this Sunday after their names have surfaced on the list exposed by the Ashley Madison hack.
In a post on his Christianity Today blog, The Exchange, Stetzer said the number is based on “conversations with leaders from several denominations in the U.S. and Canada,” adding, “To be honest, the number of pastors and church leaders on Ashley Madison is much lower than the number of those looking to have an affair.”

Along with being a contributing editor for CT, author and professor, Stetzer is the executive director of LifeWay Research, and a well-regarded expert on church leadership. He is also the executive editor of the Christian leadership publication Facts & Trends. All that to say, Stetzer is well-informed, and his number is likely accurate.

Former social conservative lobbyist and Christian reality TV star Josh Duggar and Christian vlogger Sam Rader recently released their own statements, acknowledging that they were both users of the site, which facilitates adultery.

      So, they’re not heavenly bodies after all.

      In some ways I’m glad this came out. Especially church members – SHEER HYPOCRISY – then they have the GALL to tell you how to live & what to think.

      Though they may preach it and tell YOU how to live does not mean that they are guaranteed living it! Just because they fail, means nothing. God still holds US responsible for His word and we cannot go out and “do likewise” or as they do and think we can get away with it when we stand at our Judgment before the living God. Try pointing your finger at them on that day! Ha! Not one excuse will stand and He shall measure your life and doings with the ONLY STANDARD….THE WORD OF GOD! Woe be to those who do not measure up to that standard. You had better get it straight NOW before we go to our Judgment with the Living God. God is not playing your little games. You are foolish indeed….eternally foolish to think He does!

      Men, sex is her purpose — not your purpose.
      (1Tim 2:10-15 — “…she shall be saved in child bearing…”)

      Look at the ratio of actual females (few, frauds, or zero) to males (probably all guys), participating, and this looks like shameful desperation.

      I’m perfectly willing to objectify her, then.

      If I’m so rational, to a fault, let’s make this like a math problem. You lower the secular discussion to the point of no moral bounds, and it becomes utilitarian.

      :cool: Or, shall we make it a matter of faith.

      :arrow: Useless, useful, or do it for arcane reasons.

      Don’t these hypocrites preach that everyone is a sinner, and that anyone will be forgiven if they accept Jesus as their savior? Ergo, in real life, that means anything goes, doesn’t it? This is the main reason millions of people are attracted to Christianity, it’s designed to be safe haven for sinners. This is also why they plaster the Ten Commandants on billboards everywhere, so that the rest of us know the rules the Christians are flagrantly breaking. Non-Christians just have to be good people on their own volition, there’s no fall back Son of God to save them or excuse them “for they know not what they do.”

        A lot of Men go into the Ministry to prey on good hearted Christians. They are children of satan and have never belonged to God. There are millions that claim to be Christians but they are not. These sinners make Christians look bad but one day soon god will punish all of them and make things right.
        If you make a stain on the Lords Church you will pay severally. Repent now and be saved for tomorrow may be to late.

      How can one tell the ONE true religion, the one true faith? By the fruits it produces. ALL sects of Christendom produce rotten fruit, as evidenced by this Ashley Madison hack. Remember, Galations 5:19-21 lists works of the flesh, and included in that list are sects. Revelation says they are Babylon the Great. Jesus said he hates a sect. Revelation also says to “flee from her, unless you want to share in her plagues and punishments”. And still, most stay with this religion or that religion, thinking they’re doing the right thing, when all they are doing is being deceived.
