Pandemic of sex abuse in “Christian” churches

I just did a basic search. I could fill several posts just with links to more articles on this that I found. It is not just the SBC. That cup of wrath cannot possibly be far from overflowing! God said judgment begins at the house of God, the church! He said nothing is hidden that will not be revealed, or done in darkness that will not be brought into the light. The problem of sexual abuse in churches is that too many “pastors” are not only not called, but they’re not even born again!–STL
