    Maybe he should have used his closet to pray.

    I read the account; things do not look good for the pastor.

    At the very least, this is one of those occasions wherein the pastor should have remembered the admonition in 1st Thessalonians 5:22: "Abstain from all appearance of evil."

    Sounds like he needs prayer, perhaps in more than one area. (So do I, but I haven't been on any ladders in such fashion.)

    Judith, you got in just under me. You are of course right.

    Not that it really matters, but didn't what's now called Cornerstone University used to be Grand Rapids Baptist College/University?

    Why does one need to secretly climb a ladder and look into a window to pray for someone????

    He was misquoted. He climbed the ladder to prey on the woman. He needs a time out.

    Thread title is misleading, makes it sound like the guy is being persecuted.

    My guess is:

    he is moonlighting as a PI

    or

    he became infatuated with her through the school or church, and just got jealous that he had been spurned
