Megachurch Pastor Fired for Viewing Porn Talks About Overcoming His Addiction, New Pastor Job – Bible Says This Dude is Permanently Disqualified from Ministry
The Bible has some pretty straight forward guidelines on the type of people who can or should hold ministry positions in a church – something like viewing porn is a permanent disqualifier, yet this guy, in spite of being found out as a porn user or porn addict, is once more working as a church pastor.
Some Christians still claim to be against sexual sin, but they’re not – when you watch them in action, they will excuse and excuse and justify sexual sin. This guy sexually sins up, down, and sideways, and he is given yet another ministry job. Meanwhile, honest to god celibates – people like me who are sexually abstaining because we are single – get no support from Christians.
I see headlines like this, and I don’t see it as a beautiful, nice testament to “God’s grace” but I only see how the contemporary church has sold-out and become very lax about sexual ethics.
He says that technology was his downfall – was it? I use the internet quite a bit but don’t make a habit out of viewing porn or visiting porn sites.
I believe this article says that this guy is married – contrary to what many Christians teach, especially Baptists and evangelicals, marriage does NOT make adults more godly, ethical, or responsible. Being married didn’t stop this guy from viewing porn, after all.

Pastor Scott Crenshaw said he felt like a rock star when he was senior pastor of the multicampus New River Fellowship Church based in Weatherford, Texas.
After helping Joel Osteen’s Lakewood Church in Houston grow its young adults worship ministry, Crenshaw went onto become New River’s senior pastor and helped expand the congregation from one campus to three and from about 500 members to over 2,500.
But that all came to a crashing halt in 2016 when his departure from the church for “viewing inappropriate images” on his church computer made national headlines.
