“I know he had an impact on my life,” said Veron, who had participated in New York Hillsong in the past.
The fired Hillsong pastor Carl Lentz had a celebrity in his corner: the “real”
; host Adrienne Bailon.
Lentz, the pastor of a large church in New York, was resigned this month for “moral failure” and “violation of trust.” He later admitted to cheating on his wife, which showed that he was let go.
In the episode of “True” on Wednesday, Veron said that although it is okay for Lentz’s congregation to be “disappointed” in his actions, she believes that people may place too much expectation on church leaders.
She explained: “I do believe that there are no missionaries, priests, and singers are all taller than me.” “I do believe that the only people we should look up to in this way are God and Jesus himself, because that is the only thing that can be saved. my people.”
She said: “Therefore, I do think we need to reassess how we view the leaders in the church, and not anything else. I think we also need to remember that even if they do something wrong, don’t completely erase what they have. Do all good deeds.” Continue.
Bailon explained that she and her husband Israel Houghton (who is the worship leader) knew Karl. Byron said that although they did not have close contact, she did attend Hillong in New York, admitting that “he had an impact on my life… Carl is part of the church I want to return to.”
She said: “So, although it is disappointing, yes, all of us are disappointed. No one is more disappointed than his family and his wife. But let us not obliterate everything he did.” “Yes. , He failed, but let’s not completely throw him to the side of the road and say: “Okay, okay, you did all these great things, but you failed, and now you are completely gone. God is something else.”
After Hilson Church expelled him for “moral failure”, Karl Lenz admitted to cheating on his wife
When the host Loni Love asked Blum why the conversation made her so excited, Adrienne said that she truly believed that “God has” used Karl as his teacher.
She continued: “It affects me. Just like I remember on the balcony of Irving Square,’Wow,’ he said to me.” “I don’t want to delete that because he did something wrong. You understand me. Mean?”
“I feel that I have committed a sin. It is difficult to imagine every good deed you do, or devote your life to a ministry, and then once you do something wrong, you will be driven away.” She added. “And I have heard this sentence, and my husband said it obviously because of his own experience, but sometimes the church is very good at being there for the lost or looking for the lost, but we are showing our love to those we have discovered. .”

In a lengthy post shared on his Instagram page last week, Lentz admitted to cheating on his wife after being fired.
He wrote: “I am unfaithful to marriage. It is the most important relationship in my life and I am responsible for it. This failure is my responsibility. I am alone and I am fully responsible for my actions.” “I’m now embarking on a journey of building trust with my wife Laura and my children, and spending time on self-working and healing my life, and seeking the help I need.”
He continued: “I am deeply sorry for the loss of trust in many of our loved ones, and understand that this news may be very difficult and make it difficult for people to hear and process.” “I would love to say this to you in person, Because you owe you. But I don’t have a chance. So to those people, I pray that you can forgive me, and over time, I can live a life of regaining trust.”
In his speech, he made it clear that he understood the church’s decision and said: “When you accept the call of the pastor, your life must respect the mission, respect the church, and respect the church. Respect God. If that doesn’t happen, you need to do Changes, in this case, changes must be made to ensure compliance with the standards.”
He added: “I haven’t done enough to protect my spirit, replenish my soul, and seek the available help.” “When you leave an empty place, the choices you make bring truth And the painful consequences.”
He said at the end of the post: “We, the Lentz family, don’t know what the next chapter will look like, but together we will be full of hope and gratitude for God’s grace.”
