I'm amazed at how we all seem to have points of views when it is applied to other people. But we stand so straight and tall when we think of ourselves.
When JESUS met the woman at the well, and told her she has had 5 husbands. To whom did HE send her back to>>>> the first>>>second>>>third >>>fourth >>>or fifth< Husband>. Apply GOD's word to yourselves, and if you find yourselves sinless then you may cast the first stone. Otherwise pray and lift your brother up. For you do not know what he or she has been through.

Gee isn't that something in Jerimiah 3:8 God divorced Israel! I suppose He souldn't be allowed to minister! What happened to the giftings and calling of God are irrevocable? That is scripture my friends!!!

Kevin, i wonder if you could help me.
I have been trying to get in touch with Fergus Marsh.
if it is possible could you pass my email address on to him, it is possible that we could be related.
I have tried others without any getting any replies.
I thank you for any help you can give me.
Reguards barry.

The teachers of the law and the Pharisees brought in a woman caught in adultery. They made her stand before the group and said to Jesus, "Teacher, this woman was caught in the act of adultery. In the Law Moses commanded us to stone such women. Now what do you say?" They were using this question as a trap, in order to have a basis for accusing him.

But Jesus bent down and started to write on the ground with his finger. When they kept on questioning him, he straightened up and said to them, "If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone at her." Again he stooped down and wrote on the ground.

At this, those who heard began to go away one at a time, the older ones first, until only Jesus was left, with the woman still standing there. Jesus straightened up and asked her, "Woman, where are they? Has no one condemned you?"

I think that people just need to see evidence of repentance and humility in Kevin's life. I was raped and abused and stalked by a guy on the worship team at my old church. When I finally had the courage to disclose this information, I was strongly urged to keep it quiet "because it could really damage [his] career". I have forgiven this person, but it is hurtful and scary to me to see his carreer as a music pastor flourishing with little to no consequences. If someone is not disciplined appropriately, the potential to commit the same sin - with greater consequences - exists. How much more hurtful/devastating for this man's poor wife will it be if/when he sins again in kind? I'm not saying we have to judge or condemn him, but to turn a blind eye to a sin that has very real and longlasting consequences for the victim, is reprehensably irresponsible. God forgives and remember our sin no more when we are truly repentant, but that does not mean that the consequences of your actions in spacetime magically disappear. Real repentance ultimately means doing right by the person(s) you sinned against...[and who wants to do that??]
I'm not saying that God doesn't use broken, sinful people in mighty ways. But the real heart of the issue is repentance and restitution. Even if you have a public ministry and you commit a sin in your private life that has painful sequellae for other person(s), you need to make it right, and for the sake of your public ministry do some public act of genuine humility/contrition. I'm not speaking specifically to Kevin or to "a man like Kevin", but to anyone in public ministry who sins in this kind. The credibility of your ministry may depend on it, and that's a very scary thought.

I agree 100% with Jay in KC. God is not
mocked. Kevin is living in adultery, and needs
to repent.

God does not take lightly to covenant breakers.
Kevin needs to leave this adulterous relationship
and return to the woman that God joined
him together as one flesh. Whatever God has
joined together CANNOT be torn asunder by
a piece of paper. John the baptist lost his
head for proclaiming this truth and saying it
is unlawful in God's eyes.

We don't know all of the details of Kevin's life, his past, his sin, his heart, and his relationship with God, nor is it our business. From the verse you used, you seem to be suggesting that he divorced his former wife, after having sinned against her. I don't know whether or not that is the case. Even if it was our business, supposing we knew all of the details that led all of us to believe that he should not have married his second wife, are you suggesting that he divorce his current wife? Would he not be sinning again? Should he not be allowed to worship the Lord? Should we not worship the Lord too? Is his music sinful, because he sinned? I praise God that Kevin has chosen to receive the Lord's forgiveness, and continues to worship him, even leading others into worship. We do not worship Kevin. We worship the Lord. He is gracious, compassionate, forgiving, and desires to love us, and be loved by us. We have no reason to believe that Kevin is walking in any kind of sin. It seems to me, that it might take a great amount of humility for him to continue making music, and performing live, knowing the type of judgment that he will receive from others, such as yourself.

God allowed David to continue to enjoy a marriage with Bathsheba after he killed her husband. I am overwhelmed at this God of mercy and longsuffering.

I am a prophetic minister that also had sex with another man's wife. I am amazed at how the Lord has advanced my destiny rather than subdued it. Man says stop ministering, God told me heal the sick, bring home the poor, gather the intercessors to repent pray and fast. In fact a great revival broke out at my ministry only weeks after my sin stopped. I understand your concern but for some reason God doesnt see things my way friend. I did not hear you condemn this mighty man of God, but I believe God is blessing them and even smiling on them right now.

You quite honestley shouldn't be doing what you are doing. I believe your actions have caused you to become disqualified from ministry

i am a prophetic minister who´s lost his hope and has been trying to know how much can a man be restores, i know King David was allaowed to continue ministering before God, but was it His purpose for him to lost his family, his son Absalom and the baby creature in the woman´s womb? i bet it was for a judgement came upon, and i cannot forgive my self because i have lost my wife...RESTORE ME LORD!

"God has fully restored Kevin and the church should also"????

Does that include marrying the very woman that you cheated on your wife with????

From my understanding, the grace of God empowers you to overcome sin, not continue in sin. Restoration involves turning from sin through repentance, not continuing on in it and using the grace of God as an excuse for it. This is a simple fact: KEVIN MARRIED THE VERY WOMAN HE COMMITTED ADULTERY WITH. Visit Kanas City and you can meet plenty of people that know this...including his wife. God will only forgive if we repent of our sins! There is no forgiveness without repentance. Kevin marrying the very woman he cheated on his wife with is not turning from his sin, but continuing on in it. IT is presumption of the grace of God. The word of God says, "When they were in the house again, the disciples asked Jesus about this. He answered, "Anyone who divorces his wife and marries another woman commits adultery against her. And if she divorces her husband and marries another man, she commits adultery." Mark 10:11-12 NIV Kevin is still living in adultery. Will you love him by confronting him with this in love and humility instead of turning a deaf ear so you can enjoy his music????
