Pastor Charles Jenkins needs help on his naked picture leaked online

This is a very shameful situation that Pastor Charles Jenkins has gotten himself into. We really do not know what is going on here, and quite frankly, we don’t want to know any further details. No pastor, minister, worship leader, or Christian should have a naked picture of themselves anywhere, much less on the internet. (Such a picture being taken of him is, quite frankly, causing people to ask, ‘Is he a closet homosexual?’ or ‘Was he in an adulterous relationship?’)
The picture was released online last week by his former employee, and as since created so many unexplainable questions. Until this situation is 100% resolved, and until these pictures are somehow taken off the internet, we believe Charles Jenkins needs to temporarily step aside from his role as pastor at Fellowship Missionary Baptist Church in Chicago.
We expect the preachers who know Charles Jenkins, who have preached in his church, who have invited him to preach in their churches, and who have listened to and enjoyed his music? In our opinion, pastors who have preached for Charles Jenkins such as T.D. Jakes, Kenneth Ulmer, Francis Chan, and others need to come alongside this young preacher and publicly say, ‘I know this brother. I’ll vouch for him. This situation that he has gotten himself involved in is shameful, but because I know him, as far as I am concerned, it is an aberration and may not even be true. Please don’t condemn him yet; instead, pray for him and his family as we counsel him and get to the bottom of this matter.’
During this Easter season, we want to encourage all Christians to pray for Pastor Jenkins, his family, and his accuser. As the Bible says in 1 Timothy 5:19, “Against an elder receive not an accusation, but before two or three witnesses.” Galatians 6:1 says, “Brethren, if a man be overtaken in a fault, ye which are spiritual, restore such an one in the spirit of meekness; considering thyself, lest thou also be tempted.”
Again, with that said, nothing will take away from this beautiful song, which God used Charles Jenkins to write, “My God is Awesome.” This song is apropos on the eve of Easter. We at do not believe that when a preacher messes up, everything that he has done before for the glory of God has come to naught.
