Ezra 10:17-18 KJV

And they made an end with all the men that had taken strange wives by the first day of the first month.

[18] And among the sons of the priests there were found that had taken strange wives: namely , of the sons of Jeshua the son of Jozadak, and his brethren; Maaseiah, and Eliezer, and Jarib, and Gedaliah.

When you see the teachers themselves contradict what they are supposed to be teaching a people and doing otherwise, then you know there is real trouble.

Coming out straight from bible school, a man was asked why he rather chose to adopt a “street” approach to solve a particular problem, instead of using biblical principles. His response was, “that was bible school, this is the real world.”

Ezra had a challenge, almost immediately the people returned from exile in Babylon, they started inter-marrying foreign tribes; one of the main causes of their downfall the first time. Probing further, he discovered that the priests were even more guilty than the rest of the people.

Troubling/disturbing news about our mentors, formators or pastors shouldn’t shatter our faith and send us into the gutters. Such surprises are bound to happen and Christ expects us to sail above them as well. Pray for the restoration of those who fall and lend a hand if you can.

Have a blessed day.
