The Secret Life
by Rick Boxx
February 26, 2010
A senior pastor shared with me a tragic story. A staff member of his was so good at staying out of sight, and appearing to be busy, that no one recognized the warning signs.
This employee was living out a secret life online that evolved into inappropriate relationships and destroyed his career and family. As soon as one person stepped forward with a complaint about this employee's personal conduct, many other issues began to surface.
Although his peers at church didn't know what was going on, God did. Psalm 90:8 teaches, "You have set our iniquities before you, our secret sins in the light of your presence."
There are no real secrets. God knows all, and desires us to bring our sin into the light, so that we can begin to heal.
