Dog training, fly fishing and buying meth off a male prostitute

This is a really sad story. Tedd Haggard’s book has been very helpful to me. I really hope the truth comes out, whatever that is.

I hope he find forgiveness and reconciliation with his family.
I hope the Church (his church) deals with the situation with grace, but also with integrity.

It sucks when someone who has been effective in the Lord’s kingdom falls from grace so spectacularly. I don’t count Haggard in the same league as Swaggart and Co. I hope most of this is not true, but I have a bad feeling about this.

COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. Nov 3, 2006 (AP)— The Rev. Ted Haggard admitted Friday he bought methamphetamine and received a massage from a male prostitute. But the influential Christian evangelist insisted he threw the drugs away and never had sex with the man.

In addition to resigning his post at the NAE, which claims 30 million members, Haggard stepped aside as leader of his 14,000-member New Life Church pending a church investigation. In a TV interview earlier this week, he said: “Never had a gay relationship with anybody, and I’m steady with my wife, I’m faithful to my wife.” story

One thought on “Dog training, fly fishing and buying meth off a male prostitute”

  1. It’s been confirmed on the church’s website (that he has been involved in immoral conduct, no other details) and the Board of Elders has stood him down –, go to the press release.

    What a tragedy. I hope the repentance and healing process is powerful and effective for him.
