Isn’t Sharing Publicly about the Moral Failings of Evangelical Pastors in General Unbiblical?

Isn’t Sharing Publicly about the Moral Failings of Evangelical Pastors in General Unbiblical?

article September 5, 2018
Question from a reader: I read your blog post, “The Sacred Trust of Pastors and Christian Leaders: Accountability and Consequences for Sexual Abuse.” It seems like throwing evangelical pastors under the bus publicly is just what the world would love to see. In the article, you cited 1 Timothy 5:10 and mentioned that if a pastor sinned that it should be disclosed to the church body. That tells me that if a certain pastor sinned, then that would be shared with that particular church, and if it went to the press, so be it. But what Randy Alcorn is doing is generalizing about the sins of pastors to the entire world. Where in the Bible do we can find a command to do that?
