Pastor John Gray has apologized to his wife, Aventer Gray, after he was accused once again of cheating on her.
On Sunday, Gray told his congregation at Relentless Church that he is now receiving extensive counseling and that other pastors are helping him tackle his issues.
“I’m sorry for the areas of my life that I left unattended, that I was apathetic about, the areas where I have treated the calling of God, the grace of God and the hand of God casually in my life. For every area of behavior that has dishonored the holiness of God, I want to tell you that I’m sorry. There have been a number of things, blogs, some of them accurate, some of it not. But all of it, my responsibility,” he told his congregation.
“I apologize for putting the name of God in harm’s way and I and I alone take the responsibility for the actions that harmed and injured God’s sheep. No matter how many pseudo-excuses one can hurl in a moment like this, for the purposes of self-preservation, all of them ring hollow when all that is truly needed is the truth,” he said.
This comes the week after the pastor claimed that he was the victim of blackmail and extortion.
