Mega Church Preacher Bob Coy Caught In What Some Sources Saying Case of Adultery and Porn Addiction

Nov 2017 Update:

Ex Preacher Bob Coy Accused of Molesting Toddler And Abuse Lasted Until Kid Was A Teen


I see no point in Christian single women abiding by the “be not yoked to an unbeliever” teaching, usually interpreted as meaning a Christian should not marry a Non Christian, when so many professing Christian males, even preachers, are adulterers, child molesters, porn addicts, and wife beaters.

Here’s news of mega Calvary Church pastor Bob Coy, who was apparently caught having affairs – to give the guy credit, he’s at least resigning, is my understanding. Most preachers, when caught in sin, hang on to their preacher job tooth and nail, though their affairs disqualify them from remaining.

At least one site I have seen so far says Coy was caught having about two affairs this past year and has a porn addiction or porn habit.

Married people are not more mature, sexually pure, responsible, or godly than adult singles!

I have several more comments below, under one of the long excerpts.

(Link): Confessing Moral Failure, Megachurch Pastor Bob Coy Resigns From Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale

    After confessing to a moral failing in his life that disqualifies him from continuing his leadership, Bob Coy on Sunday resigned as senior pastor of Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale in Florida, effective immediately.

Coy has served as senior pastor since the church was founded in 1985…

According to sources familiar with the matter, Coy confessed to key leaders on Wednesday. A board meeting was called on Thursday, in which he confessed and resigned.

    April 8, 2014

Bob Coy, the Florida Megachurch Pastor of Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale, has resigned after confessing to key leaders in his church that he had cheated on his wife. “Bob Coy reportedly confessed to key leaders that he cheated on his wife Wednesday. A board meeting was called the next day, when he resigned,” reported Local 10.com on April 7.

According to an April 6 official statement by the Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale, Bob Coy resigned as Senior Pastor on April 3, 2014, “effective immediately,” after having confessed to “a moral failing in his life” which disqualified the pastor from continuing his leadership role at the church.

Here is Spiritual Sounding Board blog’s (owned by Julie Anne) coverage of the story, which I think you will find very interesting:

After a link or excerpt or two about Coy’s resignation pertaining to adultery and a pornography habit, Julie Anne gets into a more generalized commentary on the problems associated with Calvary Chapel churches.

Julie Anne also provides this copy of a post by a woman named Lianne from the Calvary Chapel Abuse blog – I found this pertinent to this blog: by Lianne ((Link): comment source)

    (post by Lianne)

I am a former CC wife. Former is the key word! My ex husband was in ministry in South Florida. He was heavily influenced by CCCM Pastors who viewed me as too worldly to be his wife. They planted many lies in his head about me that had no merit but that he very much took to heart.

What I did not know was two years before we had met, my ex husband had confessed to the head Pastor his sexual issues including visiting strip clubs and buying pornography. His punishment was a month off and then right back into Ministry. Not once during marriage counseling did either one of them disclose this very important information to me.

What took place after our wedding was nothing short of a living hell. I had no clue the seriousness of his sexual addiction.

… We were later transferred to a Central Florida CC where he was on staff.

… My ex husbands sexual issues continued to run rampet [sic], so much so he was caught at church having viewed several pornographic material. Once again, nothing was done. I was scolded told I needed to be more sexual for my husband everything would be ok!

This same year I discovered his former Pastor was forced to resign from his position due to sexual harassment of another staff members wife. What happened after was sickening. He was called back to CCCM by the founder to serve as Associate Pastor. He was eventually fired from CC but not until the damage was done.

My ex was a fraud. He preached dating wasn’t of God. He preached not to be alone with any girl or to hold hands. Not kissing before marriage. Yet behind close doors he was having disgusting sexual conversations with woman online and had an active membership to a pornography store in town. Yes everyone makes mistakes and everyone sins. But that is why God holds Pastors and teachers to a higher standard than anyone else.

…After much prayer, I took the out the Lord gave me and divorced him.

I would encourage you to visit Spiritual Sounding Board blog to read (Link): the entire very eye-opening entry there.

I am truly sorry for what Lianne, the lady above, went through, but I think it serves as a warning for Christian single ladies: please, I beg you, stop holding out for a Christian guy.

Men who profess to be Christians are not better than Non Christian males.

I’m not even proof positive anymore that “be not yoked” Bible verse is talking about marriage, but even if it is, go ahead and violate it – if you do not, you will unnecessarily remain single forever or much longer than you wanted.

I see Christians violating clear Scriptural teaching on many a topic, including fornication, and they are not being punished or suffering negative consequences – not from God, not from community, not from churches.

Nobody is upholding or enforcing any sort of negative penalties for folks who violate Scriptural standards on behavior, especially in regards to sexual sin.

Very few churches today seem to be standing against the sin of homosexuality – and some are even defending it – and some churches are defending homosexual marriage.

Many individual Christians, entire churches, and whole denominations have turned a blind eye to hetero pre-marital sex; they care not if singles are having sex before marriage.

(They say they do, but there are no negative consequences to those who are guilty. People who actually and truly care would enforce negative outcomes to those guilty of violation.)

I’ve seen scads and scads of testimonies (mostly on TV, but some online) by Christian women who said they knew pre-marital sex was wrong, but they slept around a lot anyhow, but they did not get pregnant from it, no sexually transmitted diseases from it, and they ended up getting married to normal, stable, loving guys and are living the all American dream of a two story house in the ‘burbs.

There is no reward in staying chaste, no reward for holding out for a Christian partner (who may never come – data show that there are not as many single Christian males as there are females).

Add to the mix the demonic teachings (yes, I said demonic) – the utter crap and trash some Baptists and evangelicals and other branches of Christianity put out to singles or the topics of dating and singlehood – such as, it is wrong for a man and woman to meet alone, hand holding while dating is wrong, dating itself is wrong, etc., and you can see how Christians are acting as obstacles to Christian singles who want marriage!

And the idiots, the two-faced Christian morons (who are married), teaching the “no kissing on a date,” or “no dating at all, for dating is evil” views to teen and adult singles are married guys who have porn addictions or are having affairs on their spouses!

These idiots who are cheating on their wives, or looking at online porn every day and so forth, and they have the audacity to teach adult singles not to hold hands on a date, or not to date at all, because such is “sexual sin,” ungodly, or unbiblical?

If you cannot, will not, or did not, stay sexually faithful to your spouse, do not DARE to presume to lecture this 40-something virgin woman about sexual or dating morality.

I believe the Bible forbids pre-marital sex, but as the vast majority of Christian adults are not abiding by this rule, and they and churches, are condoning it, watering it down, pretending like that teaching is not in there, and having sex before marriage, it makes it okay for you to start having pre-marital sex, too.

When nobody is bothering to actually live out what the Bible teaches on a topic, including other self professing Christians, there is little to no point in living it out yourself.

So here we have it: another guy, married guy, who worked as a preacher, was caught in sexual sin (according to some news sites): affairs and a porn habit.
