(NaturalNews) What would you do if your spiritual leader had sex with his wife's best friend? This is the choice Pastor Raymond Carroll, now called the Fallen Pastor, made.
Needless to say, his life fell apart. He lost his church calling, his wife and the respect of his congregation. Listen to his story on the December 5, 2012 episode
of Mental Health Exposed.
What did Raymond Carroll do next? He started a blog
, wrote a book called The Fallen Pastor
and decided to come clean with the world. Since then, pastors have come out of the woodwork to tell their own stories. What's the gist of their message?
They are people just like everyone else.
The problem is, most church going folks expect their pastors to be above the temptations of the flesh that trouble most people.
What makes Raymond Carroll
special is that he is killing the sacred cow that suggests pastors are different than anyone else. Just a couple of the statistics Raymond Carroll shares on this episode:1500 pastors every month leave the ministry due to conflict, burnout or moral failure. One in three pastors admit to having sexual relations with a parishioner.
Why is the Fallen Pastor coming out with all this? He wants to change religious culture. We talk about how this might be done on this very raw episode of Mental Health Exposed
