Ted Haggard

I just read a piece by Gordan McDonald on Ted Haggard's moral failure. I include the link here for your convenience.

It grieves me whenever leaders fail morally. We have such a great responsibility. So many are hurt by it. The name of Christ is drug through the mud.

I guess what's so scary is that we are all capable of such atrocious sins. So I hope we won't climb onto our high horse and start denouncing his actions self-righteously. I hope we'll pray for him and the hundreds of other leaders who are tempted in the same way each week. They need our prayers. Lord have mercy on us, your children.
