While some Evangelical church leaders are living in million dollar mansions, own tv and radio stations, property, airplanes and theme parks, all in the name of Jesus….. many have sinned through their worldly acts and yet still the flock follows….. why? ….Because the gospel of Jesus is a living gospel and one of grace and truth which the people of this world need to hear. What happens when a church leader's trust is betrayed by scandal?
