Celebrity Preacher Loses ‘License’ After Wooed Women Come Forward Citing Sex, Booze & Morning-After Pill

jennings-screenshot-compressedA self-described evangelist, author and poet who rose to celebrity status for his hip-hop styled poetic messages, model-like photographs and numerous selfies has had his ministerial credentials revoked after confessing to sexual indiscretions. The admission occurred as a number of women have recently come forward citing that both promises of marriage and spiritual abuse played a role in them being lured into sexual sin.

Clayton Jennings, who had been in the midst of promoting Tim Tebow’s new book “Shaken,” released a spoken word confession online on Nov. 13, which as of press time has obtained over 190,000 views.

“I never claimed to be perfect and I never said I was sinless. Presenting you with a fake facade of greatness is never why I got in this,” he says in the video. “I want you to know this: I’ve sinned—a lot.”

“I could tell you stories of my past sin, but I wouldn’t know when to stop. I had sex before marriage and I broke a lot of hearts. And that’s not even the worst part. Sometimes it was during seasons of ministry,” Jennings admits. “I led some girls on, and there were text messages of sex and sin.”

Six women have come forward thus far to state that Jennings had manipulated them into sexual behavior, the majority of which are in notable professions.

Christian News Network had reached out to to Jennings earlier this month after reviewing the evidence and speaking with his father and pastor, Don Jennings, Sr. of Harbour Shores Church in Cicero, Indiana. Jennings confirmed that he had sinned, but would not affirm that the matter involved multiple women. He said that he “would rather not talk about the allegations at this time” as he was focused on obtaining “counseling for past sins.”

Jennings advised on Nov. 10 that he decided not to release a statement as originally planned. However, on Nov. 13, after informing that no statement would be released, he published his poetic video confession to social media.

The first woman to come forward about the matter, sharing her story with J.D. Hall of the Polemics Report, said that the situation began when Jennings messaged her online last year to thank her for her support of his ministry and to invite her and her family to an upcoming event in her area. He asked for her phone number to send her the information.

But not only did he do so, she said, he continued texting her and showing interest in her.

“We texted and spoke on the phone for long hours, where Clayton revealed to me his belief that Jesus had told him we were meant to be together and I was the future wife God had chosen for him,” she said.

Jennings also “began exhibiting almost obsessive behavior, sending hundreds of texts if I did not respond within a few hours time and demanded daily pictures so he could see his ‘future wife,'” the woman stated. “His obsession for photos evolved quickly into ‘Bae pics’ or nude photos, claiming he needed them because of the distance.”

When she would not grant the requests, he would become upset and tell her that it wasn’t wrong.

“[He would] pressure me with hundreds of clocks, angry faces, broken hearts, etc. attempting to convince me that it was okay because it was for ‘our eyes only and we were meant to be together,’” the woman said.

After meeting each other in person, Jennings took her house shopping, stating that they would soon be wed. He then took the woman to his home, where he allegedly became sexually aggressive—behavior that she rejected. But Jennings later bought the woman alcohol, pouring her a large glass that made her intoxicated. Watching his ministry videos together, the woman states that Jennings then committed fornication with her.

When she expressed her objections the following morning, Jennings told her that it was “good” and okay that they had sexual relations.

“He assured me he made love to me as his future wife, and would never use a girl because he couldn’t do that to Jesus as he would have to answer for it,” she said, but added, “Clayton was very adamant about the Plan B pill and explained that his entire ministry would be ruined if I were to get pregnant.”

Days later, the woman said, Jennings didn’t want to have anything to do with her, and claimed that he had just been informed by his doctor that he was going to die and so he needed to “focus all of his energy on Jesus … with the short time he has left.” He also allegedly told her that he didn’t want anyone to know that the two knew each other, and so they broke off all contact for a time, until the woman confronted him about the shame and pain she was feeling.

“Then [he] called me, yelling ‘What don’t you get?! There was never a relationship, that was just two people who were physically attracted to each other!’ and told me ‘you meant nothing to me,'” she recalled.

The woman said she later found out that during this time, he had been engaged to the woman who is now his wife.


After reading the first woman’s story, another woman contacted Hall, stating that she had a similar experience. The woman, a musician, said that she met Jennings in 2014 when he served as the producer for a televised competition.

The two began texting and talking to each other, and at one point, Jennings invited her to his home. But the woman told him that she didn’t feel right about being alone with a man at night.

“He had a way of making me feel like I was being silly and overreacting, so we compromised that he could come over to my place instead,” she said.

However, when he did, Jennings allegedly became physical with the woman, which made her uncomfortable.

“I stopped him, saying he was going way too fast, but my attempts were continually ignored. That first night, he would say things like ‘Talk dirty to me’ and ‘When is the honeymoon?’” she said.

He also told her that he had broken off his engagement with the woman who is now his wife, and that she was his first love since.

The woman continued to see Jennings, and one night as he brought her alcohol and the two watched his ministry videos together, he again became sexually aggressive. When she objected, he told her that she was “beautiful” and that she could “trust” him. Convinced that he cared for her, the behavior continued, she said, during a third visit.

“I told him that it was my belief that sexual favors (of all forms) outside of marriage is a sin against God. He would stare at me with such a confused look on his face as he assured me ‘No, it’s not the same’ and because of his authority as a ‘minister,’ I believed him and gave in,” the woman said.

When she expressed her guilt the following morning, Jennings brushed it off.

“Again, he assured me it wasn’t the same as sex and told me that he really cared for me and could see a real future with me. He assured me I could trust him and that being physical in that way is what two people do when they care about each other,” she recalled.

“I justified being sexually intimate with him because I thought we would get married someday,” the woman said. “He knew I wanted to wait for marriage and told me that he would wait with me, wanting to be my first. He downplayed the consequence of our disobedience to Christ when he told me to simply ‘Forgive and forget,” like it was no big deal.”

The woman continued to see Jennings, but found it strange when he snuck her out of the house so others would not see them together. She also found it strange when he suddenly would have nothing to do with her. He soon claimed to her that his father was seriously ill and that he wanted to walk through the matter alone.

“Looking back, I remember thinking how different he was from the way he portrayed himself online, almost like he was two completely different people. I was so disappointed realizing that he wasn’t the ‘Sold out for Jesus’ guy that I thought he was,” she writes in retrospect.

The other women who have come forward have not yet released their stories.


After reviewing evidence, such as texts between Jennings and one of the women, as well as an audio file that included a confession from Jennings, Christian News Network reached out to Jennings’ father and pastor, Don Jennings.

Jennings advised that his son had come to him to confess and that he believed he was genuinely repentant. However, he said that he had been told by his son that he had only committed sin with one woman—that he had met with the woman, her mother and Jennings—and wasn’t aware of anyone else.

However, since that time, other women have come forward to state that Jennings had also wooed them into sexual sin. Jennings’ video confession also cited that he “broke a lot of hearts” and led “some girls on”—plural.

Jennings’ home church, led by this father, has now consequently revoked his ministry credentials.

“[W]e have removed/revoked our licensing of Clayton to the gospel ministry,” Chris Fritz, assistant pastor at Harbour Shores, told Hall.

Christian News Network contacted Fritz regarding the revocation of Jennings’ ministerial license; however, a response was not received by press time.

While some state that Jennings manipulated women into sex and committed spiritual abuse by convincing them that the acts were not wrong in the sight of God, Jennings claims that he simply committed wrongdoing while dating.

“I thought I was just dating, but my actions were degrading. All the while my future wife stayed pure, praying and waiting,” he says in the confessional video released this month. “I was a sinner and I was a liar. I let down every single person I admired, but I especially let down my Lord.”

“I am the chief of sinners and I’ve come to end of myself,” Jennings states. “And the only thing that saved me was putting down my pride and picking up the Bible off the shelf. I wanted to find verses where Jesus called me forgiven and new, but God kept taking me to verses that showed me how bad my sin was and what He wanted me to do, and this is it (to confess).”

1 Thessalonians 4:3-5,7-8 reads, “For this is the will of God, even your sanctification, that ye should abstain from fornication. That every one of you should know how to possess his vessel in sanctification and honor, not in the lust of concupiscence, even as the Gentiles which know not God. … For God hath not called us unto uncleanness, but unto holiness. He therefore that despiseth, despiseth not man, but God, who hath also given unto us His Holy Spirit.”

Jennings has asked for prayer for both himself and those who he has hurt. He married his longtime girlfriend Jamie in March of this year.

    This is what it looks like to be a wolf in sheeps clothing. I do pray that he is repentant and finally has a radical change of the spirit

  • pluther

    It’s sad. He was just too pretty, always posing for “candid” shots of him deep in prayer, when now we know he was just planning his next sexual conquest. These men bring shame to the Gospel and to the church, but they must be exposed.

    • Amos Moses

      Too sexy for his shirt ……….

    • You’ll want to research the blogger who posted this. He’s a mini broadcaster who just plays other people’s sermons 24/7. Maybe look up The Rise & Fall of JD Hall.

  • Brittany Sanchez

    We should also be in prayer for the women he preyed upon. I have no doubt these ladies will be dealing with trust issues in their faith and their relationships for a long time. The damage that can be done by selfishness is great.

    • Emm Jane


  • I don’t buy this Hollywood confession for a second. A biblically constructed paragraph released to the public somewhere might have been believable. (maybe)

    While these women are not entirely guiltless here, he clearly manipulated and abused them. Lord have mercy and let all your will be accomplished through even these sinful circumstances.

    The physical component is bad enough, but how crushing this kind of heartbreak must be 🙁

    Ladies please let this be a lesson. Stand your ground on the unchangeable Word of almighty God no matter how gorgeous and smooth somebody is. No lover of Jesus will ever pressure you to defile your conscience this way. Flee and don’t look back.

    • Emm Jane

      Beautifully put Greg. Thank you.

      • Praise the name of Jesus. Bless your heart dear.

    • This is simply a gossip columnist 24/7 audio sermon pusher whos a bigot. Look him up- an article written on him -> Rise and Fall of JD Hall. Then look at #10 in his Articles of Faith. Where was he ordained. Fair question.

      • I am quite familiar with JD Hall. Far more so than you are. Thank you very much,

        If he was ordained in the lobby of McDonald’s by a 4th grade Sunday School class, how does that have any bearing on the truth or falsity of his information. Which information is first hand and unassailable.

        • He’s a liar. I hope he’s sued. He’s should be used to it by now.

          • Now just a two faced minute here!!

            “He’s a liar. I hope he’s sued….”

            Am I to understand by this that you have passed judgement on this man, declaring him a liar based upon a blog post and that you also in that light are wishing ill upon him?!?!? For shame Madam.

            Thou practiceth not what thou preacheth.

      • I have no idea what this refers to, but I was ordained at the Pleasant Grove Missionary Baptist Church in Annieville, AR in 2001.

  • michael louwe

    This proves that bc of Adam’s Original Sin(GENESIS.3), all humans are born satanic/evil/sinful in their hearts n minds, n r bound for hell when they die, unless the Lord/God Jesus Christ saves them from hell.(JOHN.3:16 & 14:1-6, ROM.5:12)
    ……. And if they go n commit sins/law-breaking unrepentantly, God will curse them with a sad n short life on earth.(DEUT.28:15-, HEB.10:26-31, 1JOHN.5:16-21, 1COR.5:1-13 & 11:30) Christian sinners/evildoers who do so may risk losing their salvation while in suffering n despair.(REV.22:12-15, 1COR.6:9-11)

    • S Hardy

      It’s unfortunate that it happens often. I know personally of a few that have abused their charisma and power/authority for gain. However, some still seem to live long and even prosper, hurting many along their way.

  • Karen Casey

    I hope he doesn’t think he’s just going to get a slap on the wrist and he can continue in his ‘selfie’ Ministry. He was a wolf in sheep’s clothing lying to these women for sex. No better than the average Joe on the street that doesn’t know Christ. It’s worse really…because he goes on and on about Jesus. But does he really KNOW Him. Praying that the Lord deal with him and heal the ladies involved. They are going to have trust issues with any man they date from now on. God’s really going to have to confirm to them when the right one comes along.

    • Amos Moses

      “Selfie” has to be the most UNchristian, worldly, and earmark of an unsave and unrepentant person we have today …. it is all about “Me” ………

  • Coach

    I remember seeing one of his videos at an event about a year ago, highly skeptical of his seemingly flashy celebrity charisma, I did Berean research, but found very little, until recently from pulpit n pen. Greg said it best, stand firm on God’s Word and don’t fall for these pretenders.

    I can’t fully know the sincerity of his confession, but considering that he did it in a poem, which is how he rose to fame to begin with, he still sells things on his ministry website. By appearance, this is not a man broken over his sin, but a man sorrow he got caught, who’s trying to keep up with those who exposed his sin.

    This isn’t a man who fell in weakness, but a lost man needing prayer for his immortal soul. Before someone says “we all sin”, of course, but Christians repent and don’t blaspheme God as a facade to fulfill their lusts. Pray Clayton gets saved.

    • Felicita Morales

      Well said!

  • Karen

    I wonder if his wife knew about his unfaithfulness before they were married. I pray he truly repents. These cases do not sound like a moment of weakness. They were planned especially with the dirty talk and sext messaging and it happened with more than one. These women fell for him because he’s good looking, but sad that some of them gave in. No guy is worth a woman losing her virginity. That would have been a huge red flag for me. I would have ran out of the room never to contact him again. This is very disappointing to hear. I followed him for a while on facebook.

    • Errol Mcinnes

      His wife knows, she lets it happen. She is in it for the fame and the glory just as much as he is, so she accepts it as part of being married to a successful charismatic self indulgent preacher. Same deal as Marcus Rogers (who got shown the door at Ft Campbell after he let one of his soldiers drown in an off limits creek). Same deal as Matt Cruz who gathers his groupies and indulges in the flesh after every “worship service” Its all about the groupies for jesus, and the wives who stay at home knowing their husbands are sexing it up with everyone but them while on the road.

  • Grace Kim Kwon

    Celebrity preacher????

    • Amos Moses

      an oxymoron, isnt it ………..

      • Grace Kim Kwon

        A true preacher would be a man of the Word and man of prayer.

  • Funny how his “spoken word confession” comes right on the heels of “first woman comes forward.”

  • Where are the lovers of JesusChrist? Where are the guiltless? Where are those who call themselves wretch? I see those loving, absolutely loving when brethren fall down. Come to me all who are weary and take my yoke my load is easy my yoke is light.

    • First, you’ll have to explain **where** exactly there is “embellishment.” Secondly, by Clayton’s behavior, one would be truly hard pressed to affirm his salvation (given his continual, habitual, premeditative, willful sin) and so “Christian bashing” is presumptive. Did his wife know that Clayton was seeing someone else only TWO WEEKS before their marriage? If you know Jamie, tell her I gave those details to the elders at Harbor Shores and they’re supposed to fill her in.

      Furthermore, to say that Jennings is not the “flashy or a celebrity type,” I think the whole world looks at you and says, “Are you serious?” That’s why Pulpit & Pen called him out over a year ago on account of the 75 selfies a day, the glamor shots, the peacocking, the accessories and styles he wears that is designed to magnify Clayton. His father did not remove his license, except under duress from other elders. His dad knew about his behavior on December 25, 2015 and chose to TELL NO ONE ABOUT IT. This media attention is actually kinda his dad’s fault; had his dad dealt with it Biblically, Clayton would have been judged by the church and not judged by the world in the press. Satan is not at work hard here, Clayton was at work hard using the Gospel of Jesus Christ as a means to bed women and every juncture. There are more than just a few.

      You listen to Clayton’s hip-hop and claim that you “know” he loves Jesus by his words. And yet, his actions are 100% pure antichrist. Do not be naive.

      Your partial references to out-of-context Scripture does not undo the fact that this man fits all the qualifications of one who should be purged from the church per 1 Corinthians 5 and marked as an unbeliever, not filling the pulpit. According to the pastoral epistles, this man is forever disqualified from spiritual leadership. He needs to be saved and find a place in God’s kingdom raking leaves out in front of the church.

      • I’ll pray for you JD Hall.

      • When were you ordained?

        • Austin Hidalgo

          Are you fucking kidding with that reply?

        • This woman has a grudge against Hall that is driving all her comments.

          • DanielsSisterSue

            He’s a cyber-bully predator.

          • Well. 🙂

            Not that you have any particular reason to care, but you just went up a couple notches on my respectometer Sue. You’re a forthright person.

            I have had my difference with Hall, however, this one is by the book. I ask you please to judge the case on IT’S merits. These women came to HIM. He was not out finding a way to condemn Clayton Jennings even.

            What is a man to do when a mountain of irrefutable evidence of this type of flagrant abuse of the name of the spotless Lamb of God for sexual conquest falls into his lap?

            He even went to Jennings and his church privately first, even though Jennings is a public figure. Pretend somebody else broke the story. What then?

            Is Jennings above reproach because Hall hasn’t been as tight in his practices in the past? Come on now. Think with me.

      • Michele

        Claytons Job was and is to point people to Jesus Christ.. He never said look at me!! He said look to Jesus always!! You probably have never listened to any of his videos because if you did you would of never posted this article!! The people who follow him and have followed him know this is not his character… He may have messed up and sinned and fell short, he admited to that.. But that does not mean you write a nasty article about him like the direction you choose to take on it. Why did those girls go to you? This place? This is serious stuff your reporting, and I hope you have your facts straight because God dosent want you to use people either for your work like you you say Clayton Jennings is using people with his work…?

        • Michele I can almost hear the hurt and disappointment in your voice (as it were). I’m sorry for that and I don’t’ wish to hurt you anymore, but facts are facts.

          One of these young ladies specifically said that she was taken aback by how different Clayton was in person with her than his “sold out for Jesus” public persona. The man is a fake. And he’s’ not even close to the best or most convincing one ever.

          It is easy to find the original articles. If this site allowed links, I’d give them to you. You can see for yourself the insurmountable documentation demonstrating his utter duplicity and blasphemous use of the name of Jesus Christ to seduce, manipulate and bed numerous young women, over time, with complete planning and forethought.

          If the bible is the word of God, then whatever this is he is doing, repentance is not it.

          Again. I sense your hurt and disappointment and I sincerely am not trying to make it worse, but you are also young, so take it from one who isn’t anymore. These guys come and go. They really REALLY look and sound like the real thing, but the Lord will never let His name be so dishonored indefinitely.

          I pray that you receive this in the spirit in which I am sending it. These letdowns are no fun, but they are part of walking with the Lord.

      • DanielsSisterSue

        So here’s what I’ve decided, I’m asking you to remove this article.
        I hope God has mercy on your soul & you know what I’m referencing.
        Serial cyber-bullies like you should be stopped.

    About 1 in every 30 women who attend worship services regularly are targets of sexual advances by a religious leader. Look at all the sexual abuse that has occurred in cults led by charismatic religious leaders. Why are deeply religious people such easy targets?

      The weak churches are not teaching women to be strong. My church, you better believe, we are telling our girls to stand up and fight. I’ve even invited men that like to hit their wives to meet me in the parking lot to talk like men or call me when they want to strike their wives.

  • Roy Hobs

    Pretty sad what passes for “Christian” these days. I can’t even identify myself as a Christian because of how that word has been tarnished. I call myself a follower of Christ.

    “He who has My commandments and KEEPS THEM is he who loves Me.” Jesus.

    Great book if you can find it — Malcolm Lavender’s “He Offered Himself” and or, “The Fallacy of the Sinning Christian”.

    • O Self-righteous hardened-hearted people! How does it glorify God to bash people of faith? It doesn’t look good on you. His first rap spoke of his past.
      All of his poems spoke of the hate that pulls us down, back in, & the love & redemption of JesusChrist.
      So whatever you do, don’t use this as your Excuse to step away from the tarnished name of Christian. Be courageous & use your own lack of faith.
      So many have already done just that for centuries. Many many already lost people who truly Hate God in this world & jump on every opportunity to say, ~ See Christians aren’t perfect. God bless.

        ROM.9:13 As it is written, “Jacob I have loved, but Esau I have hated.”[e]
        HOSEA.9:15 “All their wickedness is in Gilgal,

        For there I hated them.
        Because of the evil of their deeds
        I will drive them from My house;
        I will love them no more.
        All their princes are rebellious.
        16 Ephraim is stricken,
        Their root is dried up;
        They shall bear no fruit.

        Are Mormons saved in your understanding of Christianity?

    • Gena B

      I agree. First and foremost if you have a heart for Christ, love God with all your heart, soul and mind, any time we commit a sin it is heart wrenching and painful. Because your heart really is in Christ, you do not want to disappoint him. We all sin and are not perfect, but some like to roll around in the mud hoping for a full bath later. While some of us as soon as we get some dirt on our garment are busy trying to clean it. To present ourselves worthy of the sacrifice Christ has made.

      • Roy Hobs

        The argument — We all Sin — is not completely accurate.
        It is a very popular belief to say that all sin is sin. Which is not true. Paul specifically made a point to say that sexual sin is unlike all others as an example. Paul also lists ‘the works of the flesh’. It is these sins — the works of the flesh — which will deny a man’s entrance into the kingdom of heaven.
        To say that ‘not praying’ or ‘not reading my bible’ is a sin equal to sexual sin is to pervert the word of the Lord.
        Sin separates us from the grace of God. We had better do our do diligence to determine those sins which grieve the holy Spirit in such a way.
        “Friendship with the world” as an example will separate ourselves from the Grace of God.

  • Emmanuel

    Confessing is the start and repentance can start. I pray this guy stays strong in the Lord and he continues to grow. I hope he feels convicted to stay off the pulpit. We don’t need another heathen pastor. We have plenty already.

  • r.Mac

    Perhaps Clayton is repentant in his heart. That is between him and Our Lord Jesus Christ. However, I personally don’t feel this video conveys a heart of repentance, but rather the same human vanity with which he seemed to conduct himself in his ministry. I will begin praying for Clayton. As I also repent daily of my own sins to our Lord Jesus.

    • Errol Mcinnes

      Clayton repentant; LOLZ It amazes me you use those two in the same sentence. Jennings refused restoration and ordained himself.

  • Kudzudechase

    Sexual predator basically. Just another charlatan posing as a “minister”.

  • S Hardy

    I believe it takes great courage to publicly confess your wrongdoings. We have all sinned and fallen short of the Glory of God. As a preacher, I believe stepping down permanently is appropriate. However once you have confessed and made your apologies to those you have personally harmed, you are to be welcomed with loving arms by your Christian family. I pray that each day you grow closer in your renewed commitment with the Lord and with your wife. Blessings to you both.

    • Errol Mcinnes

      With Jennings, it’s not a “sin” it’s a habit. He’s back on the preaching circuit and he’s back to screwing everything that winks at him.

      Fyi, he promised them marriage in order to bed them. It was only when he got married that the hoodwinked women found out the truth, ie his promises were lies, like the lies of the devil.
      1JOHN.3: 7 Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous.
      8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning.
      For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil.
      9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

    • DeeDee DaGumby

      Ah , so you do have another agenda. That whole his sins are forgiven stuff was just a cover with you just like with him. Why do you keep defending bad behavior in any form . And to do so by blaming the females is just sickening on your part. Why not give him his fair share of blame in this for being a manipulative liar who thinks he has the right to take from others using lies and deception.

  • Suzie Cats

    Oh btw for all of you who are condemning him and bashing him for his sins, I seem to remember a few scriptures in the Bible one that say “Ye without sin, should cast the first stone” and also one that say “remove the log from your own eye, before attempting to remove the speck from your brothers” …. his sins are forgiven through the blood of Christ just like yours and mine

      Fyi, at MATT.7:4, the Lord/God Jesus Christ was mostly referring to the disbelieving, hypocritical n sinning/evildoing Pharisees/scribes. IOW, sinners/evildoers are not qualified to judge another sinner/evildoer, but a non-sinner/evildoer or righteous person is qualified to judge sinners/evildoers. Sinners/evildoers/lawbreakers/criminals are not qualified to be Church leaders or even political leaders.
      (1COR.2: 15 But he who is spiritual judges all things, yet he himself is rightly judged by no one. 16 For “who has known the mind of the Lord that he may instruct Him?”[e] But we have the mind of Christ.)
      JOHN.8:11 And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and siin no more.”

      ……. The story of the “forgiven” Jewish adulteress at JOHN.8:7 was actually a trap set by the Pharisees bc under Roman Law(the Jews were then under Roman rule), adultery was not a crime, similar to today’s US Law. But adultery was a crime/sin under Moses Law. (EXODUS.20:14)
      ……. If Jesus Christ had proposed that the Jewish adulteress be stoned to death according to Moses Law, the Pharisees would hv reported Him to the Roman authorities for extra-judicial murder. But His time to die for the world was not yet due.
      (similarly 1COR.5:1-13 talked about the judgment of an unrepentant Christian incest-sinner bc incest was also not a crime under Roman Law = only excommunication from the Church.)

        All I was trying to say is that it is not our place to bash him as Christians we should be praying for him and all of those involved, I wonder would Jesus be sitting around talking about people sins and bashing them?

        • Errol Mcinnes

          I don’t recall Jesus plying an innocent woman with alcohol, having sex with her, advising her to get a Plan B Pill, and then telling that woman that her getting pregnant will ruin his ministry. When you find that chapter and verse in the bible, let’s talk about “our place”

    • And you used that just straight out of context. At least learn how a Scripture is used before trying to throw a Scripture at somebody. Oh, by the way, if that Scripture was truly used like you just used it, wouldn’t you be doing the same thing?

  • Guest254

    I dont think people are bashing. Jesus tells us to beware of men that do such. But this guy is going to need some deliverance and healing. Alot of pepole confess sins and still do the same when they think they can’t be caught. And as always preaching and teaching the gospel of Jesus is a calling from God the Father.

  • Tina Engle Shaw

    People kill me just last month everyone couldn’t get enough of him and now you find out that he’s a human and makes mistakes wow!! Now everyone wants to condemn him to hell! Yes he did have sex blah.. Blah… Blah… But the women were not innocent either they knew what they were doing when they went there! But they were preyed on give me break!!! Like he had a magic wand possessing them to do what he wanted!!! I mean really? Now that he’s a little famous they are coming out of the dark to say poor pitiful me… All there looking for is a pay day.. I mean all they had to say was no! He didn’t force them.. And let me tell you what about all these priest sexualy molesting little boys I don’t see none of you holding burning them at the stake!!! And for his own father to take his licenses that really puts the cherry on the cake… I would rather have a sinning preacher that asks for forgiveness then a holyer than though that doesn’t know Jesus at all that’s just a hoax I believe him to be true and I have made mistakes so have all of you so he doesn’t deserve to be forgiven… Climb off the cross people your not even privileged enough to stand near it much less hang on it. Shame on all of you so called Christians that bash him God says forgive.. Not forgive with a price that price has already been paid! Clayton Jennings I forgive you keep being the new you all of us faithful followers will continue cause after all were ALL SINNERS!!! If Jesus can for forgive and throw it as far from the east to west and never think of it again how dare you not too.. Smh!!

      JOHN.8:11 = And Jesus said to her, “Neither do I condemn you; go and sin no more.”
      1JOHN.3:7 Little children, let no one deceive you. He who practices righteousness is righteous, just as He is righteous. 8 He who sins is of the devil, for the devil has sinned from the beginning. For this purpose the Son of God was manifested, that He might destroy the works of the devil. 9 Whoever has been born of God does not sin, for His seed remains in him; and he cannot sin, because he has been born of God.

    • Suzie Cats

      Amen, I totally agree… No one put a gun to their heads and forced them to have sex with him, it’s not like he is a nice looking, wealthy, famous guy or anything!!!! Please, these women jumped at the chance to be with him, then figured they would ruin him and his reputation…. Ok so now this man does not preach the word of God anymore, he doesn’t travel the world and introduce Jesus to anyone any more… Who wins in this situation? Why are people so happy that one of the biggest evangelists of our time is not telling people about Jesus anymore??? Smh

    • Mickey Leon’

      you shall know then by their fruit. if a person practices sinning, then they do know God. they abide in darkness,

  • Wow. This blogger gossip columnist 24/7 audio sermon pusher has bamboozled all of you. look him up- an article written on him -> Rise and Fall of JD Hall. Then look at #10 in his Articles of Faith. Seems his a bigot as well, women, Catholics etc.

  • Gena B

    If this guy could so easily commit sins, purposely and without an kind of regret what makes him a follower of Christ. What makes him look any different than the world? How much damage has he caused to others new to Christ? A person who falls into A temptation turns to God and repents and seeks his guidance and grows. A person who truly loves Christ could not continually ignore the sins. Now he wants peoples forgiveness. It’s not the people he needs to worry about. He needs to take a humble approach to God and make sure he is not in any kind of ministry over others.

  • I haven’t looked deeper into the story & am just going off of this article but from what I’m reading, amen to Harbour Shores Church for standing on the Word & evoking his license.

  • Connie Tomas

    Ya can’t put all the blame on him…. There’s too many desperate women who will fall for anything n anyone….

  • Guest254

    How many Old testament stories account that people got drunk and were taken advantage of. The Holy Bible is here so we won’t repeat the same errors… but man will be man

  • Sharon Laffey

    Regardless of what Clayton has done, or not done, he still was able to lead thousands of people to follow Jesus. Many of those were of the younger generation. We shall all be punished for our own sins. This is terribly disappointing and another example of a fallen Christian leader. But, his messages were true…look at the content, not the deliverer. Jesus, Jesus, Jesus.

  • April Rain

    Would this man have confessed if he wasn’t found out ? I believe he would have continued because he got away with it, how many times? He knew it was wrong and still thought he could have a twosome with God and the devil. Reminds me of Todd Bently. False preacher and teacher. Wolf behind a pulpit who quoted the word, spoke the word and was a front line enemy of the cross perpetrating a fraud. TB had a affair with his babysitter..after he got busted then confessed. How convenient to admit your sin when you have no choice but the zinger is he justified his adultery saying he is Like David and Bathsheba. He ended up marrying this girl and still think he can preach the word of God. I truly question anyone’s walk who follows this slobbering wolf. Numbers 20: 10-12..Even Moses who hit the rock twice out of disobedience and anger could not enter the Promise land. He was disqualified . Men such as these can be forgiven and restored if they truly repent..however they are disqualified in my opinion to ever be in any form of leadership.

    Nothing but false humility to get sympathy and uses the typical worn out liner..”I’m a sinner”. We all sin and fall short of the glory of God. The rubber meets the road when you put yourself on a public platform announcing your a voice for God and knowing you’re fornicating after church. Talking out of the both sides of your mouth and abusing your status will get you publicly exposed and shamed.

    • It appears he got married. Don’t know if any of these happened during that marriage but they definitely happened while he was engaged to her. No he wouldn’t have confessed if he wasn’t found out because he only confessed to the one. Then, when others came forward, he had to turn tail & run.

    From a father of two beautiful daughters, “True love waits…all the rest is BS”

    • michael louwe

      For a serious but unmarried Christian couple to wait many years until age 25 or above to get married n hv sex bc of financial considerations can be a bit cruel/unfair n unreasonable, unless the fathers(= like God/Jesus) can shorten/quicken the process by helping out financially, eg buy them a house n car as wedding gifts.
      ……. For those dating in high-school or college, requiring the bf to wait for about 1 year to prove his true love is fair n reasonable, but not 5 years or more. After the 1 year, once they become a steady Christian couple, they should believe that they hv already been spiritually married in the eyes of God n may consummate their “marriage” like Adam n Eve, ie hv to remain faithful to each other n cannot breakup/”get divorced”. They should practice birth control until they can get officially married with legal papers, which is usually at age 25 or above.
      In the old days(= 1900s), fathers married off their sons n daughters shortly after they reached puberty, ie around age 14 bc earning a living was easy n simple = mostly agricultural economy. Average life span then was only about 50 yrs old.

  • Y2K1

    I can not believe people actually believe this crap. The guy says he is out in the light, in the open yet hides in the shadows. What a con artist. I think I am going to call my self saved and become a minister and get all these fools to send me money while I do everything I tell others not to do. God these people are such hypocrites! This is one more reason why I loathe these so called christians anymore. They are all such hypocrites. Do terrible things then say I am saved and forgiven and all is okay again. What a bunch of baloney.

  • My Beautiful Africa

    Con Men and Con Women, you had free will, he didnt force rape you, you are an adult and you knew it was wrong and that coming from a so called preacher,how gullible and hypocritical can some people be ,you could have walked away if in your conscience you were convinced it wasnt right,you were only angry he played you.

    • I agree. The women were just as guilty. God holds them just as accountable although He does hold leaders to a higher standard. The women were not held at gunpoint. Don’t be playing the victim. Nothing wrong with them coming forward & telling on him but take responsibility for their own choices. They played a role in it as well.
