Christian vlogger Sam Rader admitted that he had an account with the adultery website Ashley Madison, and says that he has asked God and his wife for forgiveness.
The recent hack to Ashley Madison leaked the names of millions of men who had accounts with the cheating website, including the star of TLC’s “19 Kids and Counting,” Josh Duggar, and popular Christian vlogger Sam Rader.
Rader says he created an account on Ashley Madison two years ago, Christian Today reports.
Rader has released a video for his fans, confirming that he did make an account with Ashley Madison, but has asked for forgiveness from God and his wife, and will not be revisiting this subject “because this is in our past, and this has already been completely resolved within my family and within my church,” Rader said.
Rader added that he believes God has given him a clean slate.
"She [Rader’s wife] has forgiven me for this mistake that I made in opening the account. I have sought forgiveness from God, and He has forgiven me, so I have been completely cleansed of this sin."
Rader’s YouTube video announcing the pregnancy of his wife went viral last month, although Rader and wife, Nia later found out they had a miscarriage. The popular YouTube couple says they already have dealt with the issue of Rader’s Ashley Madison account and Rader affirmed that he had never had an affair while married to Nia.
