How Did We Get Here?

06 Feb

imagesThis week Ministry Today  posted an article that cited some very disturbing statistics regarding the alarming condition of today’s ministers in the church. How did we get here?

  • 38 percent of ministers have admitted to having a one-time or ongoing affair since they began their ministry.
  • Even more have admitted to looking at pornography via their computers at home and or at their church office.
  • 77 percent of ministers surveyed admitted that they do not have a good marriage.
  • 1,500 pastors leave the ministry each month due to moral failure, spiritual burnout, or contention in their churches, never returning to the ministry.
