Pastor Drops Dead After Public Confession of Infidelity [Video]

Pastor comes clean and immediately drops deadA pastor from Connecticut dropped dead in front of his congregation after making a public confession of infidelity. Bishop Bobby Davis, pastor of Miracle Faith World Outreach Church, was forced to confess after being publicly confronted by his family. Christine, the pastor’s wife of 50 years, urged him to come clean.

Immediately after Sunday service a family member of the Bishop requested that just the members of the congregation remain for a special word from their pastor. An elder of the church, Judy Stovall, said Davis confessed to them an affair that happened a long time ago. He wanted to come clean with his church and ask for forgiveness.

Stovall said the pastor fell out as the people cheered forgiveness. As he lay on the floor Stovall reported that she held his head. She said the congregation loved him and had no problem forgiving him; they are now hurting at the loss of their leader.

The Christian Post shared an interview with a source who requested to remain anonymous. This source said the situation could have gone much smoother had it been handled differently. Apparently the source was not present because they said their information was based on what they were told.

Allegedly the pastor confessed his infidelity to his wife before the service. His wife, in turn, decided to call a meeting so that Davis could be open and honest with his members. Neither the pastor nor his wife was present in the morning service; instead one of the elders presided over the service.

During a meeting after service the pastor’s wife told the members what her husband had done. According to the source, as his wife was talking Davis walked into the meeting unaware of what was really taking place. The pastor’s wife immediately turned to him as he walked in and said, “Tell them what you just told me.” The source believes the shock of this is what induced the pastor’s heart attack.

Davis answered his wife in front of his members by saying that she was right. Pastor Christine then pushed him to Pastor Immediately Drops Dead after Public Confession of Infidelityconfess who he had committed adultery with and he declined by stating, “the other party is deceased so it does not really matter.” He then asked for forgiveness and wanted to get passed the ordeal.

The congregation began yelling things like, “We forgive you and we love you, pastor.” His family did not react that way, instead his confession angered them. Supposedly, one of his daughters doused him with water while one of his sons physically attacked him.

The source said, as a person who was once a member of his church, they were devastated by this entire stunt because it should have been handled privately and was instead carried out like an episode of a bad reality television show. The source said growing up as kids the expectation from their church family was if they “sinned” they should be able to confess it publicly and move on.

Davis, pastor of the well-known church in Connecticut since 1967, was immediately rushed to Bridgeport Hospital where he was pronounced dead.

Davis and his wife said their church was inspired after the miraculous healing of Pastor Christine’s mother who was cured of cancer after a prayer meeting in their home. Davis said people sensed the love and presence of God in his church. They have witnessed many miracles there such as people being healed of cigarette, alcohol and drug addictions.

At that time the pastor’s wife echoed Davis’ statements by saying people want to come back because they felt cared for at their church. Pastor Christine said everyone was made to feel equal no matter what type of job or degree they had, or did not have. She said the church was a family of one body.

Davis and Christine celebrated their 50th and final wedding anniversary in June 2013.

An unfortunate turn of events have left the members of Miracle Faith World Outreach Church grief-stricken and empty at the loss of their pastor. Bishop Bobby Davis fell dead after publicly confessing an affair to his members which took place some time ago.

    Enough said: “Churches are constantly ministering to people who have struggled with sexual temptations or have been victims of the lies that our culture tells about pre-marital and extramarital sex, not to mention the many victims of rape who struggle with inner pain and a sense of defilement.” THE COMMENTS ABOVE SAYS IT ALL. NOW, THE WIFE IS LIVING WITH HER INTERPRETATION OF THE BIBLE….

      TODAY’S BIBLE STUDY LESSON COVERS THIS–“Churches are constantly ministering to people who have struggled with sexual temptations or have been victims of the lies that our culture tells about pre-marital and extramarital sex, not to mention the many victims of rape who struggle with inner pain and a sense of defilement.

      We bemoan the decline in sexual morals that has taken place in the West since the 1960s, and the prevalence of sex on the Internet, and in both advertising and motion pictures. We have seen a vast change in what is considered immoral in our society.

      But, believe it or not, sexual morals in first century Corinth were worse. Much worse. Paul spent three chapters of 1 Corinthians dealing with the subject. In this lesson and the next, we’ll examine Paul’s teaching about sexual immorality. Then in Lesson 7 we’ll examine his teaching on marriage.

      “If your brother sins against you, go and show him his fault, just between the two of you. If he listens to you, you have won your brother over. But if he will not listen, take one or two others along, so that ‘every matter may be established by the testimony of two or three witnesses.’ If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church; and if he refuses to listen even to the church, treat him as you would a pagan or a tax collector.” (Matthew 18:15-17)

    Judgement belongs to God. A lot of Pastors or Church leaders had done what this faithful pastor did now without confessing it to their wives or congregation. I am sorry to say, the wife of this pastor is neither a Christian nor a mature house wife. Her re-action shows that she did not forgive her husband, if she did, she wouldn’t have come before the congregation again to say anything. Does she want to tell me that she had never sinned against God since she got married? Note that adultery is not the only sin that can take one to hell, even UNFORGIVENESS is a sin. Besides this, her re-action made the children to also judge their father foolishly and sinfully. One can conclusively say that, this woman and her children had contributed directly or indirectly to the untimely death of the pastor. Though, I am not justifying what the pastor did but Biblically, the pastor had faithfully admitted and confessed his sin, with this, one can say that the pastor is in heaven now because the Bible says in proverb 28 verse13 that when we confess our sins, we shall have mercy..BY OLU JAMES,From Nigeria,

    I come from somewhere in west Africa, its no big deal for a man to have an affair outside matrimony. But if the pastor knows biblical implications and confessed to his wife, for heaven sake, her forgiveness would have been enough. Rather than that, she went ahead and surprised him by telling the entire church without prio notice to the pastor… that was bad. I also blame his children for being hash and disrespectfull to the pastor. Well, May God grant him eternal rest. I really want the family to know that they pushed him to this untimely death.
