At times people reward us for our kindness with treachery and pain. This is what happened to this kind pastor, who helped the homeless drinking man. The story is truly shocking and heartbreaking.
The homeless man’s name was Ivan. He was 29 and spent many years drinking. His wife kicked him out of the house and he had no place to live. Vicar in St. Mary Northamptonshire named Matthew Taylor took him in, because he pitted the man.
He offered the poor fellow a room in his house. He tried to help Ivan to stop drinking and provided all kind of support. But what did the man do? He and the vicar’s wife got into an affair. While the good pastor was away from home, these two used to have sex in the house.
It all has started in a quite innocent way. The drinking guy used to have long chats with the pastor’s wife. They “bonded” much and decided not to spot with the emotional cheating and moved to the physical one. Here is what the man says in one of the interviews:
‘We couldn’t control ourselves. We both knew it was wrong and that it shouldn’t happen.”
After they broke up, the man settled in a house some 2 km away from the vicar’s abode. Sandra (pastor’s wife) kept sending him texts asking to come and have sex with her. Now she seems to repent in her transgressions. It looks like the pastor has forgiven his wife and they are on vocation now.
However, this story got into the press and it puts down Christians and their faith. Sin is awful and ugly, especially when it is done by the children of God!
