Daystars Marcus Lamb Confesses To Adultery

30 Nov

 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.

    Would you mind offering some refferences for your scripture? I know better than to doubt the great RGH, (cause I’ve been wrong before) 🙂 However, I would like to get my noble Berean on and direct refference would make for an easier start.

      Thanks for dropping by and leaving a comment Halieus. Here are the references bro.

      1 Timothy 5:20 (King James Version)
      >
      > 20Them that sin rebuke before all, that others also may fear.

      Proverbs 28:13

      Basic English Bible
      He who keeps his sins secret will not do well; but one who is open about them, and gives them up, will get mercy.

      Douay-Rheims Bible
      He that hideth his sins, shall not prosper: but he that shall confess, and forsake them, shall obtain mercy.

    You make excellent points and I agree. For the most part, 100% of the leaders of these national movements have skated above the moral ruler they push on others, then they all HIDE their failings rather than honestly and Biblically deal with them. When you have that gravy train rollin’, it’s tough to stop it and get a real job like the rest of us. Even ole Ted Haggard spun a web so thick most got tired of reading about him fairly quickly. However, just like Jimmy Swaggart, pastor Ted took himself out from under the umbrella of authority long before the Godly men suggested. The taste of high living was still there and he had to reach out and touch it. So he is starting another church in the same area, which he promised not to do. I think “integrity” is a term lacking in the lives and training of many ministers today. When you claim “God told me…”, then you can justify just about anything, even skating around mounds of Biblical instruction to do your own thing…like buy a second jet (Jesse Duplantis) or whatever you want to do. Integrity, boys!! Where is it today? Is it any wonder 60% of Americans do not attend church???

    I do not condone what Marcus Lamb did and it was wrong in every sense of the word, however if it was years ago and he truly has repented to God and confessed to Joni and not done it again then God has forgiven him and from the sound of it Joni forgave him years ago. Even King David in the Bible was tempted and fell hold to that temptation with Bathesheba, he also had her husband sent to the front lines where he dies and yet after repenting God forgave him. All sin and fall short of the glory of God.
    A sin is a sin to God none more worse than another as I understand the Bible.
    God is a forgiving God but not to be tempted himself by anyone. Do not tempt the Lord thy God that goes for all of us not just some.

    As much as I hate to say it, I knew these people were headed for trouble from the day I laid my eyes on them. This couple has been displaying their dirt for a very long time. The way Joni disrespects and degrades her husband IN FRONT OF GOD AND EVERYBODY has been very sad to watch. And then she wins some award? Please. I spent three miserable days working a temp job at Daystar, and would not recommend working there to anyone. What’s at the top trickles down.
