82: Reflects | Can a Divorced Person Be a Pastor?

In October, the Rise & Fall of Mars Hill podcast had a story about a faithful church-planting pastor who lived his life in obscurity. His ministry had started off rocky because he graduated seminary at the same time that his wife left and divorced him for someone else. Today the guys consider the standards set for elders and church leaders, especially with regard to divorce. We work out our thoughts somewhat live in conversation as we weigh the need for character and upholding standards of integrity, but on the other hand the harm that can be caused by creating artificial rules on top of what Scripture says.  We'd love to read your thoughts on the show!
