Proverbs 5:18-19 – “... and may you rejoice in the wife of your youth."

And then we turn for news to Hammond, Indiana, where one of those megapastors with a megachurch (not to mention a wife) has lost his job because he was fooling around with a 16-year-old female.

Boys and girls will get together, I'll grant you that, but this fellow, Pastor Jack Schaap, is 54, making him 38 years older than the girl he was making out with in the picture that someone sexted to his cell phone while the deacon had Jack's phone in his hand.

This is more complicated than Victor Newman's womanizing, huh?

The interesting thing here, to me, is that the church, the First Baptist, with a seating capacity for 7,500 upright members, fired happy Jack for the sin of adultery.  They did not seem to mind the fact that his co-sinner was 16, but they did point out that he committed "a sin that has caused him to forfeit his right to be our pastor."

Oh, and his father-in-law was the founder of the church.

But wait!  There's more!  While they were sorting out the initial mess, another teenaged girl came along and said that she was messin' with the minister too.

Pastor Jack Schaap is now learning how to deal. His wife is mad at him for two-timing, and so is his girlfriend.
