brother,

If the church has multiple teaching elders, definetly there should be a pause and for them to pray on what to do. In churches where the pastor has 100% complete rule there is no helps or checks and that can be the opening up for troubles and failings to come.

//The pastor professes innocence//

This should be given zero weight.

It is hard to assess without knowing the charge but he should step aside until investigation is complete.

This post has no information; nor should it. Perhaps leave it as a matter of prayer, and for the truth to prevail.

 Re:

Brother Greg,

Your statement if full of truth. I was wondering if you did not mind elaborating on this some more? What are your thoughts on churches where pastors have 100% control? I understand that they are known as apostolic churches. Do you reccomond churches to have elders?

Your feedback is appreciated.

Blessings

- Fred
