Ted Haggard

Ted Haggard news articles here, here, and here.

Before you read this post, I'd like to say I've prayed for Ted Haggard and his family along with those he pastored. I have no joy in learning this. Only deep sadness as Christ's name was profaned by a professed Christian leader yet again.

Here is a link to Ted haggard's "letter of confession" to New Life Church.

I pray that God would use his humiliation to effect spiritual regeneration in Mr. Haggard. That he would truly see his sin as an abomination like he previously taught. Repenting in dust and ashes is all Ted Haggard should be considering. Also, be praying for the wife and 5 children he has brought the worst of shame upon.

As a result of researching this and Haggard's former Presidency of the National Association of Evangelicals, I am now on to my next personal project: Discovering why the PCA is a member of this grotesque body of apostates.

Here is a link to an article on ted Haggard's doctrine before this latest revelatory news item happened.

Speaking of doctrine and the lack thereof, listen to an account of his interview on The White Horse Inn:

"The White Horse Inn" did an interview (or at least played part of an interview) with Haggard several months ago.He was categorically denying that preaching needed to be "Christ-centered". He said it just needed to be "Bible-centered", which makes me think he is talking about "principles for successful living".He also claimed to be doing pretty well with the whole "Law" thing, and when the interviewer admitted that he stumbles over the Law everyday and gave an example or two, Haggard said, "Well, stop doing that!"The rest of this post, I edited out.... I felt that maybe I was being uncharitable towards him, and I didn't want to take a chance of doing that.

See this link for more info on Haggard and his teachings.

There is a common theme in all of this. More to come to be sure.

It is my opinion that being gay is not a sin, though that is only my opinion. However, cheating on your wife and children with a prostitute, lying and deceiving and doing meth for 3 years is.
