Does a pastor have the right to embarrass someone by tell the congregation that he is a sex offender
Why would a pastor bring that up...Why would a pastor discuss someone with someone else? It would be most inappropriate to say the least. The pastor needs wisdom and discretion.
First you should not be embarrassed by it, but come to terms with what has passed. A person is either guilty of the act that has gotten them placed on the registrar or not. If so, in repentance, one will need to see this as an opportunity to help others that are inclined in this direction or seek to help others who are still in the darkness and have not been found out by man.
Yes, 1 Cor 5 is crystal clear on this. It would have to be a recent offense though.
Due to the blessed power of God, I have committed no sin since my repentance from sin and my rebirth.Oh Ok.....When did your pastor last discuss your sins in the congregation? And......was it fun?
Well That's wonderful that you haven't sinned...How long has it been?Due to the blessed power of God, I have committed no sin since my repentance from sin and my rebirth.
The fear I would have of being "outed" by my pastor is one of God's extra boosts to keep me clean.
