A Christians Response to Adultery- Unfaithfulness

Proverbs 6:32
But a man who commits adultery has no sense;
whoever does so destroys himself.

The news from the campus of The University of Mississippi, The Flagship – Ole Miss, is causing a lot of news for a slow news week
in the small campus of Oxford, MS.

Many people are hurting today despite the fact no blood was spilt. The head football coach resigned in disgrace. From news reports he privately admitted to calling a prostitution agency for services. He was previously beloved and at the same time hated for his Christian stance. He was associated with a national Christian sports ministry. 
Most importantly he is the husband and father to young girls.

He was the leader of a major college football program.
He was making over 4 million dollars a year.
The attention might be misunderstand to those 
who do not love Ole Miss, football or Jesus.

Character assassination is the best way to void
any Christian witness short of physical murder.

Everybody will eventually have their day in sports. Sports are my recreation not my standing before God. I really do not care if you love my alma mater or not. A Christian leader crushed his soul by betraying his wife, children and witness by his actions. I was just reading a quote from Bob Russell’s book ‘When God Builds A Church’. The quote was about the fidelity of a leader. “You’re the example, not the exception.”
The church of my youth is still suffering from unfaithfulness in the pulpit from over 40 years ago.

Christians should mourn for the dishonor to the ministry given to the Lord, his family, and the vast ripple effect this great sin of adultery has on others we will never know it damaged. Then look to restore the faith of the fallen.

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around 
like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour.
