I am sad to report the following:
Hite is an office Administrator for HeartCry, living in the Radford VA area. He is also a deacon at their church, Christ Church Radford. Read the arrest filing report at the link above.
HeartCry has issued a statement, which is below-
For all of us who are tiring of this hateful world, this comes as a blow. We mourn the sin that is in us and rears its head to harm in unconscionable ways. We grieve that the spotless name of Jesus will again be dragged through the mud as ‘one of His own’ threw mud and refuse upon it. We mourn the destroyed lives and broken hearts sins such as these cause.
We mourn our own sin, and shake our heads in wonder, ‘could I have ever done such a thing?’ The answer is ‘yes’. Sin that is in us, unaddressed, unrepented of, dallied with, will overtake and the temptation WILL assault our senses. We have a Normandy in our hearts at every moment, and we must push back the waves of lusts that threaten to breach the fortress of purity.
We also grieve for HeartCry, Paul Washer’s organization, a place known for strong Gospel stands and a deep desire to see people come to know the Holy One of God, an organization that strives now to retake the credibility it has lost through this breach of trust satan engineered. Satan is a brilliant strategist. So sad for this man and his family and my beloved HeartCry.
How long, O Lord?
