This is just another peice of evidence that the devil never takes a vacation - he is always on the job. It is his purpose to kill steal and destroy! But his power to do this was stripped by our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ, when he got up and declared all power was in His hands!
We must pray like never before. We must tighten up our armour and put on our on "blinders & earplugs" to some of the things that we know will follow in the media regarding both of these families. You know the stories will swell and change and people will make harsh insensitive comments. But the redeemed of the Lord must say So! Take our place!
I hate the devil!
You can't change what you're willing to accept!

If I don't know anything else, I know that the God I serve is able. The devil is a liar and the father of and he is trying his best to destroy the family. that's his ultimate goal. No matter what we are going through and no matter how many temptations are set before us, God will always provide a plan of escape for us. It's up to us to obey Him. Divorce is painful for some and necessary for others. God wants his children to be happy, not miserable nor abused. We don't know what has happened but we do know how to pray. Let's remember Paula and Juanita in our prayers when we fall to our knees. Be blessed my sistahs Love ya D

2 Chron 7:14-16 If my people, who are called by my name Will humble themselves and pray And seek my face, turn from their wicked ways Then I will hear from heaven And will forgive their sin, and will heal their land.
Saints of the most high God, we need to pray. We are in the last and evil days, believe it or not. Yes, we've been hearing it since we we little, well GOD's word is fulfilling itself. Pray for our leaders. Smite a sheep and only he will scatter, but the shepherd and the sheep will scatter.
The only time that you should look down on a man is when you're picking him up.
This on top of what happened this week with Juanita Bynum and her husband. The devil is definitely busy out to kill, steal, and destroy. Queens don't let him in your heart or house. He's a powerful enemy but the Lord thy God is stronger, powerful, Almighty, and the end. So don't be fooled or deceived. We need to pray to keep our families strong and together.
I love and wish for the best for all the BBQ's.
Faith....the realization of what is hoped for and the evidence of things unseen.
This is the first I have seen or heard about this but I will answer your question or the statement that you made. Satan is out to kill and destroy God's people. On a daily basis he is out to get us and now he is trying to target leaders that God has sent to give us His word.
It is important more now than ever to be prayed up. We have to be a POWER force to take out Satan. We have to constantly have our mind on Jesus. We have too unite as people of God. We have to believe that God is God.
TAMPA - Megachurch pastors Randy and Paula White stood before their congregation Thursday night and made the announcement that many in their flock feared had been coming for months.
They are divorcing.
"It is the most difficult decision that I have had to make in my entire life," said the Rev. Randy White, 49. "I take full responsibility for a failed marriage -100 percent. I don't blame Paula, and I don't blame other parties. But as the man of the house, I take full responsibility for that."
He praised his wife, calling her an exceptional woman and a great preacher and wife.
Standing by his side and appearing to fight back tears, the Rev. Paula White called the decision to divorce "one of the most painful of our lives."
"But God always comes to you in the dark places of life," White said, standing beside her husband in the pulpit.
White, 41, also offered a note of optimism.
"It's not the end of the story for Randy or Paula or maybe even Randy and Paula," she said.
The couple, who have both been married and divorced before, did not say what caused their breakup. They also did not detail if they had filed for divorce. They have grown children from previous relationships but none together.
Word about trouble in the couple's marriage has circulated for months. The Whites' disparate ministry paths have fueled much of the concern. Randy White, a bishop at Without Walls International Church, has been spending time in Malibu, Calif., in hopes of establishing a ministry on the West Coast. Paula White, the church's senior pastor and a sought-after televangelist, keeps an apartment in New York City, where she recently opened a new ministry and self-help center in July.
The couple, arguably the most prominent evangelical partners in the state, said they made their announcement at Thursday night's service to tell their church "family" before word of their separation appears in the local and national media.
The Whites' split calls into question the future of the 22,000 member megachurch, which the couple founded as South Tampa Christian Center in 1991. During their announcement, which came just before the sermon, the Whites sought to put those concerns to rest.
Randy White said he would continue to lead Without Walls and would focus on being a "great pastor" and a "great dad."
Paula White said she would also continue to preach at Without Walls when invited by her husband. She also said Paula White Ministries would continue to be based in Tampa.
Several hundred Without Walls members were in the audience for the announcement. As the Whites spoke, some people in the crowd cried. Others appeared stunned, noticeable by the audible gasps in the cavernous sanctuary.
Warming herself outside the church, one woman said "God knows best," before being told by another member to avoid talking to the media. At least one Without Walls member said the church was hurting and lashed out at a reporter for being on site to witness the announcement.
The church broadcasts its services via the Internet at www.streamingfaith.com. But last night's announcement was not aired. The video of the broadcast was interrupted without explanation and resumed after the announcement.
Inside the church, the preacher for the evening, the Rev. Tim Storey, sought to offer direction to a stunned congregation.
"How many of you feel sorrow tonight," Storey asked the crowd.
Hands shot up around the sanctuary.
"We should. But God is still good."
