Would a deacon sit under the preaching of someone who is caught in sin?
Welcome to the forums!
Deacons sin!, preachers sin, teachers sin.
There is a way to approach those that sin.
Elders are to be approached with respect.
I'd hope the preacher would be receptive and respond appropriately to a charge of sin.
Some great preachers have fallen, repented, and been restored.
They've gained wisdom (and a large portion of humility) the hard way.
An article yesterday:
Pastor John Piper says people leaving their church are 'walking away from Jesus'
[Norm Funk] "Pastor John, what would you say to this? 'I’m not walking away from Jesus, but I am done with the church. I can’t trust the leadership. I held a certain leader in high esteem. So I am not going to walk away from Jesus, but I am done with the organized aspect of church life.'"
[John Piper] "If you do that, you are walking away from Jesus."
Hopefully, the deacon uses Gal 6:1.
But I think your question is, should a pastor caught in sin continue being a pastor?
What is the sin? Is the pastor repentant? Is there an environment of discipline, instruction and restoration to go with hopeful repentance?
Is this the same offended Deacon, and Porn watching Pastor from the OP other posts?
