A week after Billy Graham's grandson, Tullian Tchividjian, filed for divorce from his wife, Kim, the former pastor's counselor Paul Tripp, who says he has been working with the couple for the past six months, said Wednesday that the marriage could not be saved because it had been "irreparably broken" because there was no longer any trust between the couple.
In a statement posted to his website Wednesday, Tripp bemoaned the public spectacle Tchividjian's marriage had become before explaining how they arrived at the painful decision.
"I wish we lived in a world where pastoral counsel and heart, life and ministry restoration could take place in private, but those days are regretfully long gone. So, in light of the news getting out that Tullian Tchividijian has filed for divorce and to mitigate any unnecessary and unhealthy speculation regarding the details of the situation, as Tullian's friend and counselor, I have decided to post this statement," Tripp began in the statement. more >>
A Muslim family in Lahore, Pakistan, has abducted, tortured and shot their 23-year-old daughter and her Christian husband, leaving them for dead, in retaliation for their daughter's conversion to Christianity.
The 28-year-old husband, Aleem Masih, was killed in the late-July incident after taking three shots, including one to the head. His wife, Nadia, was shot in the midsection and remains in critical condition in the hospital, the Christian persecution monitor Morning Star News reported.
The Masihs got married about a year ago after Nadia gave her life to Jesus at the dismay of her Muslim parents. The Masihs decided to flee to the Narang Mandi, a town about 37 miles from Lahore, to avoid being victimized by an act of honor violence from Nadia's family after Aleem and his family members were continuously threatened. more >>
