And I think you are mixing your religeons. Catholics have priests, Baptists have pastors. But I'll give you the benefit of the doubt since the difference in title is subtle. Out of the thousands of Baptist pastors, I suppose there are some who succumb to sins like that - although I personnaly have only heard of one case in my lifetime of a pastor molesting kids - and even then I'm not a 100% sure it was the pastor or just one of the staff handling the children's ministry. Being a believer does not mean we are suddenly "made perfect" in this life, never to sin. And carrying a church title does not necessarily mean one is saved, a Christian. Church elders have come forward and be baptised because they realized they were "doing church" because that's what mom or dad did, followed in the ministry because that was what dad did, ... not because they ever really met the Savior, had a changed life, or was Called by God to the ministry. That too is probably rare, but it happens. There is no "the Bible". There are lots of Bibles... I have read the Bible, several times, studied the Bible, researched the Bible, ... There is a Bible! Other religeons have "holy scriptures", they are not the Bible. The Catholic faith included some books not accepted by the reformation. About a 100 years after Christ, Jewish rabbis decided to revise the content of what we would call the old testament scriptures, elliminating some books written around 100 years before Christ. The new testament is identical in protestant, catholic and orthodox. I believe some protestant Bibles continues to carry these extra books in a separate section up until a 100 years ago or so. We could argue their validity as well as the Catholic acceptance of church tradition and words of the Pope as canon. But that's not the point. All faiths use the same New Testament. All proclaim Jesus as THE WAY. What's you're point? Just because someone discovers some other text, does not make it relevalent. There is a lot of great fiction today, and nobody like a good sci fi story better than I. But I won't use it as a blueprint for my life. THE Bible, the Word of God, works, is accurate, is useful for teaching, rebuking, ... well you get the idea. 1 Timothy, look it up.
