Another Christian pastor has been arrested for child molestation. Harry L. Thomas of the Come Alive New Testament Church was arrested after four former church members came forward accusing Thomas of sexually abuse from 1999 until 2015 according to Medford Township District Attorney in New Jersey.
enablers remaining congregants will be comforted by trustee William Darpino who released the following statement.
“It is with deep regret and saddened hearts that the Elders and Trustees of Come Alive New Testament Church have indefinitely suspended Pastor Harry Thomas from all leadership positions with the church, festival, and all associated ministries,” the ministry said in a statement to media Thursday.
“While the allegations are unrelated to his roles in these ministries, leadership has determined this to be the proper course of action at this time until there can be a full investigation,” stated church leaders. “It is requested that all pray for the parties involved and refrain from speculation regarding the circumstances.”
Thomas was charged with one count of aggravated sexual assault, three counts of sexual assault and four counts of endangering the welfare of children. Thomas of course denies the charges and has asked for god’s forgiveness which was granted which along with God’s grace means he renews his first class ticket to heaven. Thoughts and prayers for Thomas to burn in hell are more than welcome.
Thomas remains at an undisclosed location under guard due to his failing health. Police urge any other victims to come forward. His first court appearance is on December 12th.
