Spirit-Filled Pastor: Is Reinstatement Possible After Moral Failure?

Is it possible for a leader to be reinstated after a moral failure? Although there is not a one-size-fits-all approach, we can ask some hard questions:

— Do they accept full responsibility for their actions without blame, resentment or bitterness?

— Do they seek forgiveness without conditions and stipulations?

— Do they take full (not partial) responsibility for their actions?

There can be no "buts" when repentance is genuine. "I am sorry. I was wrong. Please forgive me," are often (although not always) healing words and signs of repentance. Excuses need to stop before healing can occur.

There are consequences for past mistakes, but will God reinstate fallen leaders? Take time now and listen to this timely discussion, Is Reinstatement Possible After a Moral Failure or Other Failure?
