I just found out that a potential member of my church is soon to be convicted of downloading child pornography.

Tough one. I would follow the lead of the church. I know of a situation when a deacon was having an affair. The pastor instructed all to have no contact with him til he turned back to God.

As far as your kids go, pray protection over them. Then don't allow him around your children unsupervised. I had to do a similar thing at a family function. It was tough, but I wasn't going to disrupt my life because of anothers choices.

I know it is sickening to deal with. Been there too. Just pray.



You can't change the past, but you can ruin the present by worrying over the future.

ohhh.sticky is right.

I have to tell ya, my gut tells me.........nope. I know we need to forgive, but that doesn't mean we must allow them to come around our children. If it was my BIL and he had been caught with this stuff on his computer, he would not be my childs God parent. That is a person who stands before God and vows to help train the child in their spiritual walk. Thats not someone I would
