Pastor Ray Mosley charged

RayMosleyPastor Raymond “Bud” Mosley was charged with child molestation in Silver Springs, NV. Mosley allegedly molested a 4-year-old girl.

According to the complaint, Mosley allegedly “encouraged, instructed and compelled” a 4-year-old girl to touch his genitals between July and April.

Mosley is an associate pastor at Silver Springs Christian Church. His wife is the senior pastor. She turned her husband in to the authorities.

The church wants to distance itself from the crime and the alleged pedophile. They miss the point. If their pastor can molest a 4-year-old child, what does that say about Christianity? What does it say about his leadership in the church? What does it say about his ministry?

This didn't happen to a church member, you know, it was a family member who was involved in the church here," said Heiser.

Family members at the Christian Center say, since none of the charges stem from anything that happened at the center, they hope it's image isn't tarnished in the community.

What are they afraid of? The questions should be hard. They should cause the members to squirm. This issue should cause church members to examine the very core of their beliefs. But it will not. Why would they follow a man who can molest a child? What does it say about you or your church? Where is the discernment? Where is the good judgment? Where is Jesus?

Pay no attention to our pastor. He allegedly molested a 4-year-old girl, but she was not a member so everything is OK.
