Dating or courtship is supposed to be a wonderful time of getting to know each other, praying together, and seeing if marriage is right for you. Right? You're supposed to date / court a Christian man. And you would think dating someone who studied to be a pastor would be a safer bet...
Dating is not supposed to be a time when your boyfriend cheats on you constantly with MEN and confesses to it. It's also not supposed to be a time when you get a call from him because he is in jail and you post bail for him. Why are you doing this? He's just been arrested by the FBI for having child pornography on his computer.
I'm thinking about this friend who told me he was let go from a pastoral position a few years ago. He said that a young man in the youth group falsely accused him of doing something to him or saying something innapropriate in the bathroom. There was a physical altercation where the kid punched him or something. And then he was fired.
I thought he was telling me the truth, so I didn't question it. We used to hang out and talk in a cafe before he found his current job and started dating this mutual friend.
I'm reflecting on all of the times he assisted in giving communion, led prayer for large groups, helped with various volunteer activities, and preached a few sermons.
I thought he was a spiritual man, I thought they were happy. I thought they were destined for the altar. I thought wrong.
