Randy and Paula White seek to sell their church

GospelCity.com is reporting that Randy and Paula White are looking to sell Without Walls International Church in Tampa, FL.

There is a part of me that is shocked and there is a part of that isn’t. Apparently, the church facilities are in a developing area in Tampa. Selling the church could prove to be profitable.

The potential of an enormously profitable sale is not the reason why the sale of the church doesn’t shock me. Randy and Paula White have recently gotten a divorce. That’s why the church sale doesn’t shock me.

From every observation I’ve made of divorced people, I know one thing. Divorce destroys. It destroys hearts, hopes, dreams, families, ministries and more. Divorce is just flat out ugly. I don’t care what the cause was.

I figured it would be only a matter of time before Randy and Paula completely went their separate ways. I’m assuming the church is one of the few remaining links in their lives.

The most frightening thing out of all of this is that the entire ministry could dissolve. Where will all of those people go to worship? I don’t know.  Imagine sewing into a ministry for years only to have it all taken away. It is not easy to just wake up one morning and decide to get plugged in at another church.

We all know that a church is more than just a building. It is more than just a pastor and a choir. For a lot of people, their church is their family. Imagine having your family snatched away from you. It hurts doesn’t it.

As believers, let’s keep the entire Without Walls International Church family lifted in prayer. I pray that God will see them through these tough times. I also pray that he will bring healing to every broken heart.

    The deceiptfulness of riches often enter into the heart and choak the word.   This should be a warning call to all who think material prosperity should be their focus.   God’s warnings are clear.  Beware of covetousness, a man’s life does not consist of the abundance of the things which he has…….Luke 12.     They that will be rich ( lustfully desire to be rich) fall into temptation and a snare and into many follish and hurtful lusts which drowned men in perdition and destruction……1 Timothy 6.
