    Default Clarence Sexton speaks out

    .

    There are times for Godís people to be silent and times when they need to speak. I have gone through another spine surgery and while at home recuperating, I have had a lot of time to ponder the goodness of the Lord and to praise Him for his care and keeping of my life. Let us remember that He never changes. The clearer our vision of God, the clearer everything else will be.

    Just before I went into surgery I received the heart-breaking news concerning Brother Jack Schaap. Immediately, I called him and told him I had heard of his sin, and that I loved him and I was praying for him. I told him that if he desired to talk with me about this, I was willing to listen.

    At the same time, I also spoke with Cindy. She was so heartbroken. Of course I told her Evelyn and I loved her, and that God will come to her aid and He will see her through this.

    In forty-five years of ministry, I have not witnessed anyone who gave up so much for a moment of pleasure. This must be a warning to all of us.

    Jack and Cindy Schaap have two wonderful children. Their son and daughter are admirable young adults in every sense of the word. They are married to outstanding Christians, and each of them has a beautiful family. I want them to have the brightest future possible. God is with them.

    Many will be quick to condemn not only the Pastor, but also the grieving church which he pastored. Please allow me to say just a word about the First Baptist Church of Hammond, Indiana. It is an Independent Baptist Church and a truly great one. It is made up of great people who have a great Saviour. The Lord Jesus is with them. This great church has responded biblically and with compassion.

    Upon finding the facts, the deacons of the church acted immediately to dismiss the pastor. Unanimously, they agreed that he has disqualified himself. They prayed for divine direction and the Lord is with them. The church did what was right even though their hearts were broken beyond what we who look on are capable of understanding. This is the Bible way. They are continuing to do the right thing, including cooperating with all local authorities. First Baptist Church of Hammond has displayed in their behavior a true biblical pattern. Christ remains their only head and the Bible, Godís Word, their sole authority for their faith and practice.

    In conclusion let me say that I am grieved beyond words for people I genuinely love, but at the same time I am grateful to be an Independent Baptist. Dear friends, let us speak every word we speak as if it were spoken in the presence of Jesus Christ. It is.

    I know there are many that will disagree with me, but I think that that letter is one of the best letters that could be written about this. I sincerely do like Bro Sexton!

    It is a classy statement. Unlike Paul Chappell using the opportunity to try to sell more of his books.

    Who is Clarence Sexton? Must be a big boy in IFBx-dumb, never heard of him.
