“Bishop” Earl Paulk of Chapel Hill Harvester Church in Atlanta is no stranger to sexual scandal. But now, he appears to be breaking new ground. The Associated Press reports that the 80-year-old leader of a suburban Atlanta megachurch is at the center of a sex scandal of biblical dimensions: He slept with his brother’s wife and fathered a child by her.
Members of Archbishop Earl Paulk’s family stood at the pulpit of the Cathedral of the Holy Spirit at Chapel Hill Harvester Church a few Sundays ago and revealed the secret exposed by a recent court-ordered paternity test. The last six months may just be a new low for Christian “leaders” in America. As I mentioned, we’ve been here before with the Bishop. Will this stuff ever stop? Worse – will we ever be able to rehabilitate our perception among the culture?
