Married Preacher and Father of Four Uses Depression as Excuse or Diversion For Extra-Marital Affair He’s Having
This married guy, Greg Locke, works as a preacher. He has four kids with one wife. This article says he started having an affair with another woman and since he was found out, he’s been saying he has anxiety and depression.
I’ve not been able to ascertain if he’s saying the mental health conditions caused him to have the affair on his wife, or if he’s bringing it up now as a diversion, to get people to focus on the depression rather than the affair.
I used to have anxiety and depression too, and I can assure any reader of this blog post, that anxiety and depression does not cause one to sexually sin.
Sexual sin is a choice a person makes, it’s not something that inevitably happens to someone with anxiety or depression. It’s a choice, not an outcome of having depression or anxiety.
Let this story serve as a reminder that God does not demand perfection of a person before he sends them a spouse, and that married people are not more mature, godly, or ethical than single adults, which Christians and secular conservative think tanks often insist.
Do I have to even mention “equally yoked” at this point in time? You’re better off marrying a Non-Christian guy who isn’t going to cheat on you and blame it on anxiety and depression than marry a self professing Christian guy who will do that.
These Christian idiot husbands make pagans, Wiccans, Hindus, and New Agers look like better spouse material all the time.
