Riva tims dating
According to the report in Charisma Magazine, Pastors Zachery and wife Riva Tims ended their 15-year-marriage in late July 2008, two years after it was discovered that Zachery Tims had an affair with an exotic dancer he met in Paris.He released a statement to Charisma magazine on August 14, 2009.Was it the fact that the people demanded that he eventually return, or was it his desire solely to return to the role that outweighed all other dissent at the time?In the aftermath of all of this, I wonder about how his soul was cared for in the church.YES, not only is your pastor to care for YOU, but the body of Christ is to care for their pastor for he is a brother in the Lord.Amidst the charisma, flash, shouting, praising etc., there should have been SOMEONE to speak up and say “NO Pastor, you need to get your married life in order, you need to take some MORE time to mend fences with your wife and family.” If someone did step up, this man’s sin seems to have been glanced over as if it were some small thing that three months of sitting down could supposedly fix. No one knows all the details concerning what has happened in Tims’ marriage, but infidelity is a SURE SIGN THERE WERE PROBLEMS. Or were we too busy wanting to be entertained by him to notice his marriage was falling apart?The Maryland native was raised in a Christian home with her identical twin sister, Rena. MLM is designed to enhance individuals by delivering quality resources: spiritual, psychological, educational, financial, and physiological, which will improve the daily lives of individuals and their family members.Excelling in her leadership roles in her church in Baltimore, Maryland, Riva Tims was elevated through the levels of ordination as a Deacon, Minister, Elder and eventually she was ordained a Pastor. With humility and generosity of spirit Riva captivates the minds and hearts of God’s children and helps them lead productive purposeful lives.
Backslide: Tims spoke candidly about his past of crime and drug abuse and even penned a book about his troubled youth (left).
I can’t help but to think that the very leaders who preached and attended his funeral themselves have been revealed in infidelity, (Paula White and Jamal Bryant) and continue to preach yet they are not qualified due to public scandal of their own.
The Church for decades have ignored the warnings from scripture when it comes to dealing with brothers and sisters caught in sin.
Zachery Tims stated, “I submitted myself to an ecumenical council of clergy that came into my ministry and ran the spiritual operations while I submitted myself to a counseling and ministry facility for several months out of state.” Tims said it was never his intention to hurt his family, “It was never my intention to hurt anyone, and over this reality I have spent many days seeking God’s grace.
I am grateful for the love my family continues to extend to me as an individual and as a child of God.” He returned to the pulpit three months later, after beginning counseling with a group of ministers.
Should Zachery Tims have been able to return to the pulpit looking at the qualifications if 1 Tim 3?
