What are your thoughts on a preacher that has had a divorce on the grounds of adultery and has married again. His wife had a affair on him


I would say that the preacher would have to bear some blame for the behavior of his wife--why did she look outside of marriage? What was lacking? Was he caught up in ministry and ignored his wife? Did he not protect her from the opportunity for adultery? Did she work outside the home, etc.? Lots of questions to ask. Bottom line, I would feel that God allowed him to be disqualified for ministry, for He could have stopped that situation from occurring.

I once knew of a pastor whose wife left him for another woman! The church kept him as a pastor, which I saw as totally wrong, for he bears responsibility for the behavior of his wife, just as he does his children.
