Comedian John Crist admitted,
““Over the past number of years, various women have accused me of behavior that has been hurtful to them. While I am not guilty of everything I’ve been accused of, I confess to being guilty of this —I have treated relationships with women far too casually, in some cases even recklessly. My behavior has been destructive and sinful. I’ve sinned against God, against women and the people who I love the most. I have violated my own Christian beliefs, convictions and values, and have hurt many people in the process. I am sorry for the hurt and pain I have caused these women and will continue to seek their forgiveness. I have also hurt the name of Jesus and have sought His forgiveness.”
Among other accusations, he was sexting women while drunk, trading tickets for sexual favors and pressuring women to have relationships with him. We all know the pull of sexual temptations in our culture. Bible has excellent examples of young men and women who through their fervent faith withstood sexual temptations. Joseph for one did not yield himself to sexual inducements from Potiphar’s wife. While it is easy for us to condemn John, let us remember we are all prone and vulnerable to these sins. Let us pray and hope our Christian young men and women will protect themselves from sexual sins for the glory of God. Peace!
