Will Paula White Marry Rich Hawkins?
Will Paula White marry Rich Hawkins of Family Praise Center in San Antonio,Texas, and if so, will God honor the marriage?
I am sure this is the question on many people's minds. I have my own thoughts on this, and I don't want to stray far from the issue at hand that most greatly affects the body of Christ today, the reason that Paula White is getting divorced in the first place.
I think the church is owed an explanation. I believe that if Randy committed adultery, it would be best to tell about it. Otherwise, so many members are left to wonder if the divorce is based on biblical grounds. If Paula committed adultery and is calling the divorce so that she can marry again, then that is a different situation, and not one that calls for support from the body of Christ.
The church can be a harsh place at times, misunderstandings take place, but when a power house couple announces they are getting divorced, it is expected that they will give bonafide biblical reasons as to why. It leaves the church wondering why they haven't.
I expected that another announcement would have been made by now, setting the record straight. It hasn't. Only one announcement that apparently was made before the filing of legal paperwork. That is odd as well. Why announce an impending divorce before filing papers?
None of this makes any sense, and I am beginning to worry how this will impact baby Christians. Please, church don't let this weigh heavy on your heart, and don't use it as a measuring stick to compare all ministries by.
I think Paula White will remarry, I feel it in my gut. My gut says she has grounds to do so, but I can't figure out why they wouldn't release the grounds of their divorce to their congregation.
Basically, what I would like to know is whether or not the body of Christ thinks that they are owed an explanation as to why they are getting divorced. Do you think that the body of Christ, and Randy and Paula White's followers, deserve to have an explanation given as to why they are getting divorced?
Will you continue to follow a ministry that announces their divorce simply stating, "We are going in separate directions?"
Do you think as a church member you are owed more of an explanation?
What would make sense to me, is that Randy was unfaithful, they are filing for divorce, Paula is free to marry another minister, and continue in ministry. However, no one is saying this. Nothing has come out regarding infidelity, and the body of Christ is left wondering why.
Well, I guess when the papers are filed, more will be revealed, since obviously, Randy and Paula White don't seem to think that they owe the body of Christ any explanations.

Wow, is the the Barry Cook in San Diego? How long ago was this scandal?
The fruit of Rick Hawkin's and Paula White's influence is far reaching even to the West Coast. The pastor of Ambassador Family Church, Barry Cook, brought Rick and Paula to our church many times. Even after it came out that Cook had an affair with his associate pastor's wife that resulted in a pregnancy, Rick Hawkins kept on coming. (The real tragedy of Cook's affair is that he married the couple before God and the church just a couple of years previous.) Many of Cook's leadership left and eventually his wife divorced him after she received a settlement she could live with. Don't feel too sorry for her. She abused her position over the woman in the church and was often guilty of very flirtatious behavior with the married and single men of the church. She was very expressive of her sexuality in all of her sermons in mixed company. One of the married men in the church refused to be her personal usher because of her seductive ways and was alienated for doing so. Today Cook continues t
Charisse Van Horn: This is the lie that cultists use to keep people from thinking for themselves. It is absolutely ridiculous to believe that you are committing a sin for acknowledging the shameful sinful acts of "leadership". It is also absurd for people to put themselves in "leadership" positions, remove all forms of accountability, then expect people to sit back and follow them blindly. They are out of order, and I am not afraid to say it.
Con't. Yet, GOD will deal with each of them, because HIS blanket of Covering is now off their lives, and he always deals with things in his way, in his manner. It is horrible to be a person in leadership that is in that position, I would not want to be Paula or Randy on Judgement day....that is for sure! As Christians, We need to pray for them, that they repent, and have a sincere heart towards Christ. God loves the Whites,just as much as he loves you or I, I know he wants them to turn away from their wicked ways and repent. What a mighty God we serve....all we can do is pray.
It isnt right to slander any leadership. GOD obviously is the Judge here, and we are not God. Romans 3:23
says FOR ALL HAVE SINNED AND FALLEN SHORT OF THE GLORY OF GOD. That means ALL of us posting here. Like Jesus says..." Let him who has not sinned cast the first stone" I dont believe any one of us can really say they are better than Paula or Randy, because we have all sinned. Their sin just looks greater, because they are in a leadership/authority/ and Godly position and people look up to them. Right? You better believe that the Lord is judging them...WE dont have to. They should be fearing that Judgment, and nothing from the public....God hates divorce. I personally dont believe that Paula or Randy have given the public a biblical ground for divorce, and they know this in their hearts. How sad for them, and it must be hard to be them right now. BUT we make our own choices, right? Yet, GOD will deal with each of them, because HIS blanket of Covering is now off the

Most peoople think that Paula bought a house in San Antonio, Texas but she actualy bought a house in Bourne, Texas. WOW that where RTick Hawkins has a Ranch... The description of Paula's new House sounds like Rick Hawkins,Hmmm Funny
Very sad situation for the body of Christ. I just can't understand how they can not fear the judgement of God. I would be afraid to use his name. I attended WWIC for 5 years. I loved Paula's teaching, and beleived she was real. Now I feel very foolish. This has effected my two teenage children, who also loved her ministry. We are attempting to find a church elsewhere but extremely hard to do. Live in Seminole, if anyone knows of one please pass it on.
