Terry MacAlmon leaves worship minister after extra-marital affair revelation

SINGER, pianist and worship leader Terry MacAlmon, who has risen to prominence through his appearances on Christian TV working with such figures as Benny Hinn, has announced that he is stepping down from ministry after having had an extra-marital affair. MacAlmon wrote in a letter to ministry supporters, "I don't have a timeline as to if or when I will return to ministry, but I know I cannot go forward with my soul in this condition."

MacAlmon's wife Greta said she planned to file for legal separation, saying counselling and a restoration process had failed. She said, "At this time Terry has chosen to leave his family, these [counselling] relationships and the ministry," adding that she believes MacAlmon will one day be restored. CR

Hay cosas mas grandes q nuestro Padre Celestial mira, como la humildad, el arrepentimiento y q nos volvamos a El de todo corazon. Levanta tu cabeza porq El ya la bajo hace mas de 2000 ańos en la cruz del Calvario. Te dice el Seńor: Tu no eres perfecto, eres un varon conforme a mi corazon, en este tiempo te remontaras a mayores alturas a traves de la alabanza, he cambiado tu plumaje y tu pico como a las aguilas, tu canto y tus palabras sanaran el corazon de multitudes.
Sigue adelante, eres de bendicion para multitudes, cuando adoras a Dios, las huestes celestiales se unen a ti.
El Dios de Abraham, Isaac y Jacob, te bendiga siempre.

Terry,
Jesus will never forsake you or leave you. I'm a Christian, but I have sinned even looking at another woman. I'm so thankful that the Holy Spirit convicts me and I have repented. King David went into deep depression until he realized that God was waiting for him to repent. God did!
So while we are still alive in this body, our flesh will try to convince us that sin is O.K. God sent his son, who was and is sin for us. He is our propituation and our heavenly advocate who loves us. Like Paul said. "I have to die daily. There will come a day. I'll pray for you my friend that God will restore you. The prodical son came back home after living a sinful life and his father ran to him with open arms. i believe God wants you back home.

Bro Terry, I logged in to check out if there re new songs done by u, but just found out about your backsliding. Pls come back to Jesus, He has freedom for the scars & mistakes that u ve made, thats the beauty of His grace. U cant be too far away from His grace. The memories ll be erased. Dont let the devil use u as gain. Jesus Loves U.

Dear Terry, Your worship music is some of the Most anointed I've ever experienced. It has blessed us for many years. That is part of why I feel so troubled about what you & your family has been through. I was so sad to hear about your decision to divorce your wife, rather than reconcile believing that God could not restore you to your wife & the decision to remarry someone who was not your wife. God sees covenant differently than we do & it seems that not many in the body of Christ have a working heart knowledge of just how deep covenant goes. I realize that this is like "closing the barn door after the horse has gotten out," but I'm praying for the Lord to reveal some things to you, so that you can share with others & they may be able to avoid these pitfalls. I know God has forgiven you, just as He forgives all of us who call out to Him. I'm just personally torn right now because of what Jesus said about divorce & remarriage. This is such a hard subject & touches So many Christians today. I pray that you will clearly hear from Him.

Well said Janet. I've just started listening to this worship music through a women's prayer group I attend. After 32 years of marriage my husband and I became separated. No infidelity was involved. During our separation, God started dealing with my heart and showed me that someone has to die to self in our relationship and being the Christian in our marriage I knew that needed to be me. Our marriage has been restored by The Lord and through obedience to trust Him to take control of our marriage, we are happier now then we have ever been. We celebrated our 3 year restoration on July 8th and last May our 35th anniversary. Now God has given me a burden to reach out to other couples who are on the path to divorce. God hates divorce.

Yes Sister Janet you are right, God sees covenant marriage differently than what most of our society views it today. We need to continue to uphold what God established from the beginning regardless of the direction our society has taken and even, sadly to say, the shift of opinion the church may be taking. He is the same yesterday as today, His mercies are new every morning and He we have seen Him in the Bible require at times drastic measures in order to get things right with Him. We pray for our Brother Terry who God has used to bless our lives with music towards the throne.

Helló Terry! Olvastam a híreket rólad, amelyek nem elítélnek, hanem buzdítanak. Én is ezt teszem, hiszen gyarló emberek lévén , képesek vagyunk szabad akaratunkat helytelenül használni, és olyan dolgokat elkövetni ami bűn. Isten az Atyánk Jézus Krisztuson keresztül lát minket, és Őbenne eltörölte a múlt, jelen és a jövőben elkövetett bűneinket is. Kérlek téged Krisztusért, hogy a kegyelmi ajándékot amit Tőle kaptál, használd! Egyidős vagyok veled, van egy 36.éves fiam zenész, ő is az Urat dicséri. 13 éve hallgatjuk a dicséretet tőled, és a fiamnak te vagy a példaképe. Minden vágya az, hogy úgy tudja dicsérni imádni Istent, ahogyan te teszed. Neki is megvan az ajándéka a zeneszolgálatra, ő is felkent dicsőítésvezető.Leszakad a menny mikor te dicséred az Urat.Szeretünk téged, és kegyelem és békesség adassék neked a mi Urunk Jézus Krisztus által, akinek dicsőség örökkön örökké. Ámen

A broken and contrite heart,God,you will not despise.My pastor,God has seen your heart and has also heard your cries.Praise and worship ministries are so dear to Him.The enemy will definitely look for a way to stop you,but remember in all circumstances,God still loves you and He still remains your father.Your songs inspire my family and I.I know generations ciming,will still drink from your songs of inspiration.We love you.
