LCMS Pastor in Prostitution Sting

by Rev. A. J. Iovine

Ouch. An LCMS pastor from Iowa got caught up in a prostitution sting.

“Trinity Lutheran Church and School is saddened by the most recent news story regarding Jonathan Offt,” Ehler said in an email to The Huffington Post. “The proper authorities are handling the situation. The church and school request your prayers for all involved. We have no further comments at this time.”

And we shall pray for Pastor Offt and the people of Trinity.

    I am a retired Southern Baptist Pastor living alone in Georgia. Someone needs to get to Pastor Offt and his family immediately to minister to them. This is what Jesus would do. In fact, it is what Jesus DID with the woman who was caught in the act of adultery and was brought to Jesus with the question as to whether she should be stoned to death. He told them, “ye without sin cast the first stone.” Pastor Offt is hurting, his life and ministry is shattered but he is worthy and recoverable if the right people will step forward and help them. Look no further than Jim Bakker and Jimmy Swaggart for restoration examples.
