The more we hear about Pastor Jack Schaap, the worse his story gets.
First, it was an extra-marital affair.
Then, it was an extra-marital affair with a teenager.
Now, we learn, it was an extra-marital affair with a teenager that was approved by Jesus Christ:
Schaap wrote the girl, “You opened your heart wide to me — you made me more than a Pastor/Rescuer — you made me your friend your confidant, your beloved. You gave me your trust, your heart, your love, + your affection,” according to the memo.
Schaap continued that their relationship was sanctioned by God and he referred to their “fantasy talk” during a counseling session. “You have affectionately spoken of being ‘my wife.’ That is exactly what Christ desires for us. He wants to marry us + become eternal lovers!”
To quote a Chicago Tribune commenter: WWJF?
Perhaps the most disturbing part of the prosecution’s testimony:
Prosecutors said the two had sex in his office while a youth conference was underway at the church in July 2012.
It looks like he could be spending the next decade in prison. We’ll find out in a week when his sentencing takes place.
