You have probably seen the headlines by now about a local youth pastor. I recently brought in Pastor Ron Smith of First Baptist Palatka to discuss the issue. Our hope is that this conversation will help answer some questions about God's sovereignty, what our response should be as Christians and help anyone who might be grappling with this incident begin to process. We also addressed issues of Church hurt and pastor isolation. Listen to the conversation below.
"He heals the brokenhearted and binds up their wounds." -Psalm 147:3
"The Spirit of the Sovereign Lord is on me, because the Lord has anointed me
to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the brokenhearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the prisoners," -Isaiah 61:1
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted." -Matthew 5:4
