“Be sure your sin will find you out” (Numbers 33:23). My parents used to say that to me all of the time, and when I read this article, or any article involving such heinous sin in Christian leadership, I think of this.
Christian leaders who are involved in unrepentant sin, you can be sure, you can be very sure that your sin will be exposed. Maybe you really think you’re getting away with it because you’re above everybody else and you make the rules and you don’t answer to anyone, and maybe you’ll continue getting away with it for a long time. But it will come out. You can take that to the bank and cash it.
And when it does come out (it will, it will, it will), you will lose everything, because nobody buys a politically correct statement that lacks sincerity (and by that point) credibility. Because there is nothing respectable or honorable or worthy or defensible in using your position to inappropriately touch anyone. Not ever. I don’t care what you say your intentions are. And neither does anybody else.
Be sure, if you are sure of nothing else, that your sin will come out. And you will bear its consequences.
I’ll leave you with just one other verse: “God is angry with the wicked every day” (Psalm 7:11).
