Hi Hope you can shed some light on this. My ex-pastor, whom I greatly respect, fell into sin, divorced his wife(there was no adultery on her part), and dispite fervent pleas from his congregation to repent, went ahead and married his new lover. Now he claims that he has repented, seeks our forgiveness and will like to re-establish contact. Problem is that the present pastor and church board does not recognise his second marriage, has sort of "ex-communicated" him (expel the immoral brother)and strongly discourage members from communicating with the ex-pastor. He on the other hand, does not want to commit further sin by divorcing his second wife. comments?
