    “I. Never. Had. Intercourse. With. That. Woman.”
    Yeah… like every other act of sex is not adultery, right? My husband did this to me after 8 years of marriage back in 1978. But it wasn’t so bad, he implied, because “he didn’t have intercourse with the woman”!!!! It’s betrayal buddy! okay, I know, he’s repenting and leaving and whatever. But I’ll tell you how deeply painful it is to be the other partner betrayed, INTERCOURSE or not. I mean, that left me wide open to all kinds of thoughts about what their sexual sin was!?! Yeah… do not say, “I didn’t have intercourse” okay? You stepped over the line, period. And I really don’t want to hear any other men defend him about that. It’s a terrible thing to find out your husband committed adultery, in any way, shape or form.

    His resignation letter oozes with an arrogance I can’t pinpoint. His words feel disingenuous at the very least. I feel sorry for this guy and especially his congregation. May this church find a pastor that will be above reproach in his walk and his ministry.

    I’ve heard that many wouldn’t speak out against Michael and Pam, because Rozell knows the “dirt” on them. I would assume that Rozell knew about this and was holding over Roger’s head. I pray that Roger is free now to make amends where he needs to. Then I hope he can finally receive the grace and mercy of God in this situation.

    The letter does NOT reveal a brokenness at all. Own it, man.
    I also noticed on their website that the senior pastor as well as two elders share the surname Klause. Seems more a family business than a church. Nepotism is alive and well.
    I do feel for the congregation, having all this laid on them.

    Having worked for cc in the past seeing those slave wages makes my eyes roll. I hope these kids sue the pants off this faux ministry.

    “Nepotism is alive and well.”

    Very common in church and many other places throughout history.

    You also might remember the Kohen (Cohen) or Aaron’s family get to be the High Priests.

    The only problem is it seems many use the “family business” too often for personal reasons.

    I don’t know what kind of a “community” this here online, but since were all jumping to conclusions here I figure I might just go ahead and do the same about you guys. I’m assuming that you were wounded by the potters field ministry in one way or another. I would assume either your kid, or you yourself had something to do with this ministry. The snarky comment in the beginning of this article about “what pastors call adultery,” leads me to believe even more that you have some sort of misguided sense of bringing some justice back to this world. Let’s face it, who doesn’t want to join the ministry? You get to be looked up to by hundreds, all the while living off of their dime. That makes me understand why one would think it would be a good idea to go off to one of these schools after seeing some guy do a cool thing on stage with a pot. Ok, enough with the jumping to conclusions here. Jesus uses all of us, even if we are being turds. I just hope that you can find it to pray for the families who are hurting, and to maybe be a little more of a decent person the next time you post an article like this. If this hurts your feelings, just imagine how some, who are affected by this, feel. This comment is coming from a guy who knows very well, that I am not a good guy, and God knows, there is a ton of dirt on me out there somewhere too.

    Mark,
    You have unfortunately succumbed to the notion that we shouldn’t talk about these issues and just let the wolves roam free.
    That won’t happen here.
    There’s more on this story to come…

    Mark, when I joined PFM, it wasn’t because I was “going to be seen by the multitudes and live off their dime.” In fact it would’ve been nice to have some dimes, I made barley anything, you can even look at the picture above of the pay, that’s what I lived on.

    Also to the above people, ripping on Roger. How much more repentance do you want? He stated the issue in all humility and stepped down. Do you also want to see him go against the wall and be shot at via firing squad? Please be graceful!

    I’m waiting for the day that the Rozell’s have genuine repentance as I see in this letter by Roger!

    Merry Christmas, remember to practice forgiveness.

    Micah and Mark—First, Micah, Merry Christmas to you also, brother! Guys please try to remember that there are a lot of people in this community who have been wounded so badly by evangelical ministries that some have even lost their faith. Yet they still hang around here. Why? Because this community understands and accepts that and does not judge or condemn them. At the same time, Michael does not suffer fools gladly. He is a wonderful man of God who has a deep understanding of the pain many have been through. He’s also a man of great integrity and this is part of his God-given ministry to expose evildoers in the church. That is not an unmerciful or ungracious thing to do. “be sure your sin will find you out.” So just a few fun facts. Maybe you already knew all this, but I think it good to remind us all what this community and the one who leads it are all about. Michael, sorry I know you don’t need me to defend you but..can’t help myself, friend.

  11. Michael says:

    Cash,

    Merry Christmas and all blessings to you and yours, my friend..grateful for you.
    I think Micah is good people…

  12. Cash says:

    Thanks, Michael. A very blessed Christmas to you and all your loved ones. And Merry Christmas to anyone reading this.

    The fact that this website exists is proof that it’s a fallen world. I am inspired to see that in fact of our sins there is still grace as long as we except it and become transparent. There’s always dirt people, the more we dig the more we will find. I worked for a church for over ten years and saw first hand. Thank you for giving people a place to be transparent and find some sort of peace and understand. Michael, I like the fact that you are honest and aren’t trying to tear people down just state the facts.

    John 8
    3 Then the scribes and Pharisees brought to Him a woman caught in adultery. And when they had set her in the midst, 4 they said to Him, “Teacher, [b]this woman was caught in adultery, in the very act. 5 Now [c]Moses, in the law, commanded us [d]that such should be stoned. But what do You [e]say?” 6 This they said, testing Him, that they might have something of which to accuse Him. But Jesus stooped down and wrote on the ground with His finger, [f]as though He did not hear.

    7 So when they continued asking Him, He [g]raised Himself up and said to them, “He who is without sin among you, let him throw a stone at her first.” 8 And again He stooped down and wrote on the ground. 9 Then those who heard it, being[h] convicted by their conscience, went out one by one, beginning with the oldest even to the last.

    Let’s play stupid Bible games…my turn.

    “The saying is trustworthy: If anyone aspires to the office of overseer, he desires a noble task.Therefore an overseer must be above reproach, the husband of one wife, sober-minded, self-controlled, respectable, hospitable, able to teach,not a drunkard, not violent but gentle, not quarrelsome, not a lover of money.He must manage his own household well, with all dignity keeping his children submissive,for if someone does not know how to manage his own household, how will he care for God’s church?He must not be a recent convert, or he may become puffed up with conceit and fall into the condemnation of the devil.Moreover, he must be well thought of by outsiders, so that he may not fall into disgrace, into a snare of the devil.”
    (1 Timothy 3:1–7 ESV)

    “This is why I left you in Crete, so that you might put what remained into order, and appoint elders in every town as I directed you—if anyone is above reproach, the husband of one wife, and his children are believers and not open to the charge of debauchery or insubordination.For an overseer, as God’s steward, must be above reproach. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered or a drunkard or violent or greedy for gain,but hospitable, a lover of good, self-controlled, upright, holy, and disciplined.He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.”
    (Titus 1:5–9 ESV)
