Jim Swilley Needs to Resign From His Position as Pastor of His Church

By SOP newswire2

Megachurch Pastor Jim Swilley Comes Out Of Closet! Your Turn Eddie ...

Jim Swilley needs to resign from his position as pastor of his church and add to his confession that the gay lifestyle is a sin - plain and simple.  God loves him and can forgive him, just as he loves and will forgive all those living a homosexual lifestyle if they will confess to Him and repent, but He does not want this man to be a leader in the church. 

If you read in I and II Timothy in the Bible it talks about the kind of leaders we are to have in the church.  Jim Swilley`s gay lifestyle is not only a sin but he has been dishonest about who he is to a whole group of people that looked to him as their leader. 

Deceitfulness is a sin as well.  I do not feel anger toward this man, we all are susceptible to sin in one form or another and to more extremes sometimes than others, but I do feel he should most assuredly take this very seriously and make wise choices about how he will go forward from here. 

God is a loving God, but He does allow consequences to come to those who make a mockery out of Him and His Word.  I pray that Jim will make right choices from here on out.
