Iyanla Fix My Life: How Infidelity Tore Apart a Pastor's Marriage!
Readers, Iyanla "Fix My Life" returns with new episodes this September. The buzz online or at least in my circle are why in the world, did they pick this particular episode as their lead-in for upcoming shows? Now, I really don't know the answer for that but I do believe this episode was one of the shows most watched. I saw this episode, and I was just shocked that a pastor was doing all of this extra and was still able to mount the pulpit on Sunday morning. It makes you wonder how many other churches this is going on in.
Pastor Patrick Dennis, the leader of a church in Shreveport, Louisiana, and his wife, Natasha, have been living apart while pretending to be happily married.
Natasha says their marriage was torn apart by her husband's infidelity. Rev. Patrick Dennis had sex with women of his congregation, including a mother and daughter. The deacons say Dennis paid for the daughter’s abortion, fathered a child upon another parishioner’s wife.
I believe the world respects a pastor and a church that will own their flaws, repent and accept whatever consequences come with that. I also believe, the world is tired of the way the church can live a lie and then preach to them to flee from sin on Sunday. I believe most unsaved people know that being saved doesn't mean you are supposed to be perfect; however, they do believe that you should be responsible for your actions should you fall.....whether those failures are public or not.
