Focus on the Family Deals With Ted Haggard’s Moral Failure

In Church Life, For Preachers/Pastors, For Seminary Students, Leadership on November 6, 2006 at 11:31 am

Focus on the Family devotes their entire show today to the moral failure of Teg Haggard who recently resigned as head of the National Association of Evangelicals. Ravi Zacharias, Al Mohler and H.B. London discuss sin issues and clergy and how the church should respond. They analyze the symptoms and the serious consequences to the cause of Christ. They also offer a hotline for those who are struggling in the pastorate with sexual issues (the pastors may call anonymously). The number is 877-233-4455.

Also, Above All Things has an excellent blog entry about Three Signs of Ted Haggard’s Conversion that is well worth reading. Also, Don Whitney’s sermon, “The Almost Inevitable Ruin of Every Minister … and How To Avoid It” is a must-listen for every pastor.

Here’s a Scripture:

Mark 9:42-50
“Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to sin, it would be better for him if a great millstone were hung around his neck and he were thrown into the sea. And if your hand causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life crippled than with two hands to go to hell, to the unquenchable fire. And if your foot causes you to sin, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life lame than with two feet to be thrown into hell. And if your eye causes you to sin, tear it out. It is better for you to enter the kingdom of God with one eye than with two eyes to be thrown into hell, ‘where their worm does not die and the fire is not quenched.’ For everyone will be salted with fire. Salt is good, but if the salt has lost its saltiness, how will you make it salty again? Have salt in yourselves, and be at peace with one another.”

  1. Your link to the National Association of Evangelicals in the article titled “Focus on the Family Deals With Ted Haggard’s Moral Failure” is not correct. That is not the official site.
