Should The Church Automatic Offer A Severance Package For Those Removed From Office By The Governing Board For “ongoing sinful behavior”?
Reader in my opinion, whenever a pastor is terminated or forced to resign, the board often times handles these matters poorly. The board usual identifies the pastor as their enemy, exaggerates any charges against him, and either fires him outright or forces him to quit. What if the pastor will not leave without a severance package? This is what seems to have been the thing with Pastor Robert Harvey whom I've mentioned in this space before.....whose wife in June held a meeting with the women of Riverside Baptist Church in Memphis, TN. And announced that her husband was gay and had been involved with two preachers at that time....have now resigned as of this past Wednesday. According to reports the church gave him a big severance package and sent him on his way. What do you think?
