ICYMI: Pastor John Gray Says His Emotional Affair Isn’t the Same Thing as Sleeping with Someone Else
Looks like Pastor Gray is ready to shut down the rumors.
He was asked if there’s any truth that he cheated on his wife Aventer during their interview with “The Real.”
And this is what he had to say:
The answer is no, I didn’t.
But over a year ago, my wife and I were in a very difficult place. And in that time, I began to converse with someone other than a counselor. Other than a pastoral leader which I should have taken my issues and challenges and began to converse.
And I was even in the presence of that person one time.
He goes on to say that what he did isn’t the same thing sleeping with someone else:
But being in the presence of someone one time is not the same as sleeping with them.
I did not sleep with someone. There is no baby…there is none of that. So it’s important for me to take responsibilities for the areas where I did come up short.
The pastor also stressed that he had an emotional affair:
Sharing things about my marriage outside of my wife and outside of trusted counselors is an emotional affair. It was wrong. I take responsibility for that. But I will not take responsibility for that which I did not do.
