Marcus Lamb Guilty of Slander?

The   Police  investigation into  Marcus and Joni Lambs accusations of blackmail are found  to be completely false and that a crime had not even been committed.

However,  you can be confident ole Marcus will not “feel led” to go on the air to publicly repent for the slanderous tactics  he employed  to  garner sympathy and deflect from his adulterous relationship. 

It does appear that the former employees who were publicly slandered  on national television are going to make sure Marcus goes before a judge to give an an account. It’s called judicial equity!

 I personally wonder what  the televangelist will  do with this command by Jesus in Matthew 5:25 in light of  the lawsuit being filed against him?

“Settle matters quickly with your adversary who is taking you to court. Do it while you are still with him on the way, or he may hand you over to the judge, and the judge may hand you over to the officer, and you may be thrown into prison.”

“On Thursday, Bedford police released the following statement: “After review of the details provided by Daystar and consulting with the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office, there does not appear to be any criminal conduct under the Texas law. As such, the Bedford Police Department has ended its investigation into the matter.”

Jim Fisher, an attorney for three former Daystar employees, said last week that he approached Daystar’s attorneys Nov. 18 to discuss a lawsuit and a possible settlement. He said allegations of extortion were “preposterous.”

Fisher filed a lawsuit Dec. 1 on behalf of Jeanette Hawkins, Daystar’s marketing director from 2005 to 2008. In the suit, she claims that she was pressured to cover up the affair and that she became depressed, suicidal and was eventually committed to a mental institution.

Tonya Harlin, supervisor of economic crimes in the Tarrant County District Attorney’s office, said her review of the case found that Fisher had contacted Daystar’s lawyers to make a legal claim on behalf of his clients — not to commit a crime.”

Daystars Marcus Lamb Confesses To Adultery

 It’s another sad day in the Kingdom. Marcus Lamb of DayStar Television Network shared during an hour long program that  he had hoped to keep his adulterous relationship a private matter but was forced to go public because of  extortionists.

You can read the news report at the site below  but here are some things that trouble me personally and which I believe are symptomatic of  many ministries and leaders today.

> Fred and Anna Kendall of the Life Languages Institute, which specializes in training communicators, counseled the Lambs to keep the adultery quiet for fear they would not be able to overcome their marital  troubles if things became public.

 Forgive me, but doesn’t scripture clearly state that whoever covers his sin will not prosper. Also, whatever happened to the imperative which states that when a leader sins,  publicly rebuke him so that all may fear. Guess that may have negatively impacted the television networks finances. Guess DayStar is just “to big to fail!”  Better to just deceieve everyone.

>Marcus Lambs refusal to live covenantally faithful with his wife is being  blamed on the devil  who is out to destroy the pentecostal ministry. When biblically speaking,  the real problem is his own  lack  of moral character, eyes of adultery, ministerial hypocrisy,deception, sinful lust, and  covetous heart. It’s  just intellectually dishonest to   blame shift by saying  the devil  made him do it.

 Doesn’t scripture declare ,”resist the devil and he will flee? Hasn’t Marcus himself proclaimed that we are more than conquerors? Doesn’t he have the personal authority  to cast out devils in the name of Jesus? Guess these things just make for good preaching during a  fund-raising telethon.
