The Hillsong pastor who baptised pop star Justin Bieber has revealed he lost his job at the mega-church because he cheated on his wife.
Carl Lentz took to Instagram to admit he “was unfaithful in his marriage”, which he said was the most important relationship in his life.
“Laura and I and our amazing children have given all that we have to serve and build this church and over the years I did not do an adequate job of protecting my own spirit, refilling my own soul and reaching out for the readily available help that is available,” the post read.
“When you lead out of an empty place, you make choices that have real and painful consequences.
“This failure is on me, and me alone and I take full responsibility for my actions. I now begin a journey of rebuilding trust with my wife, Laura and my children and taking real time to work on and heal my own life and seek out the help that I need.”
More to come.
