Youth pastor Stephen Wakefield arrested

Youth pastor Stephen Wakefield was arrested and charged with sending lewd photo to a 14-year-old girl. Wakefield, a 25-year-old youth pastor Truth Missionary Baptist Church, was arrested a few months ago on a similar charge.

According to warrants released by the Greenville County Sheriff's Office, Wakefield sent a series of inappropriate messages over Facebook to a 14-year-old girl between December 2010 and June of 2011.

He described various sexual positions and acts he wanted to perform on the 14-year-old girl, according to the warrants, and then in January of this year, Wakefield sent a picture of his penis to the girl, the warrant states.

What is it with youth pastor wanting to teach children about sex? How does one go from serving Christ to molesting children. It is a disconnect I do not understand. Then again, how does anyone serve Christ?
