    So I wont. But, I have plenty that should.

    3 questions to be discussed here.
    I am having troubles getting any of my pictures to load on this forum. Any ideas why.



    If you knew of online pictures of your Pastors in compromising positions or situations would you circulate them with a condemnation statement?

    Only sinless people should post such things.

    Something about 'casting the first stone...'

    That said, I've also had trouble getting images to upload here. I don't exactly have a lot of pictures I want to post, but I couldn't post one even if I wanted to.

    I would talk to someone in authority at the church in question - and leave it to be a local church issue

    Unless it was a minor....

    Matthew 18. If the pastor does not respond by stepping down and/or the church does not respond by removing the pastor from leadership, I'd find another church.

    But in all things, pray for the pastor, the secretary, the church and the people who are affected by their sin.

    I've tried the [ IMG ] tag and it never seems to work for me. But I'll explore other options rather than pushing this thread farther off OP. THanks, though, Gib.


    As to the OP, you really need to follow gospel order on this. Just throwing the issue out to everyone in the general public is not the correct way to go about handling this issue.

    Not to mention that you can be sued for slander, etc.... and probably rightfully so.

    For the Record: The question is hypothetical as far as I am concerned.

    But in the words of that famous Scripture. "No temptation has overtaken you except that, which is common to Man."

    As for the uploading of pics, I've tried the "attachment" link on the message box and the "Manage Pictures" below the "Thread".
    Neither have been successful.

    Yep - and we need to know that any of us can fall. However, clearly this sort of sin disqualifies one from leadership. If one cannot control his or her own actions, then how can they lead a congregation to do so?

    To post an image with the IMG tag, host the image on a site like tinypic and then you can use the img tags to reference the URL to the image you uploaded.

    I don't think so. Slander is speech. And we know a picture is worth a thousand unspoken words.

    I'm trying to load from my hard drive. Is this still necessary?

    Yes...it's the easiest way. Just go to:

    http://tinypic.com/

    Upload your pic.

    Take URL it gives you.

    Stick it between IMG tags in a post here.

    Yea....do you keep these illicit pics stored on your computer?

    Not sure what this was an attempt at but it is childish.

    If there is a link online that you see on a website, you can just hover over the picture, right click it and "copy image link" or whatever it says. That way you don't have to save the picture, copy it to a host location then put in the link. It is only if you have the picture yourself that you would need to do that.
