Update on Roberts Liardon, written later than the original post:
I just heard that he has been restored from the gay lifestyle. I hear that he got some good council, that he humbled himself to receive ministry and that he took time out from ministry but is back and writing again. Praise God!
I just found out that he forsook his calling to pursue Steve and not Eve.
Translate that: he fell into the gay lifestyle.
I am becoming almost overwhelmed as I just read about people of great faith who fell in many ways, but not like that!
I have to say that homosexuality is an extreme form of of sexual sin (usually the erosion that follows heterosexual sin,) and thus alarming.
And though it is possible to come back from falling into it, it is not easy.
The problem with big leaders in big church organizations who seem to have no accountability is that they seem to lack the ability to humble themselves to seek prayer and restoration through confession.
God help the church as this sin creeps in more and more (Satan's agenda.)
And that's why I just want to walk close to Christ - stay in the fear of God, stay with the humble and the simple, never be in the limelight.
Oh God, keep me by your power and grace.
The Lord's prayer: "lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil."
