–does not look like a Jezebel, painted and padded and bejeweled. She may be the pretty wife of a deacon, the friend of your wife, or a church member who came to you for counsel. She wants to confide in you as to who is doing what with whom in the church. She wants you to (ahem) “feel free to come to me anytime you need to talk to someone.” She wants to be your counselor. You have never fantasized about her or anyone like her. In the seclusion of the counseling room, as she unburdens herself with intimate details of her life, the minister may feel emotionally drawn to her. Pastors should almost never become professional counselors.

No one would ever pick her out of a crowd as a party-girl. In order to pull that off, her primary tactic involves a) spending a lot of time around you, perhaps volunteering in the office but more likely volunteering as your personal assistant, b) telling you intimate things about her own life, and c) asking you to unburden yourself with her. And so you wisely tell yourself this can never be, that regardless of how wonderful she is, she is off-limits to you. Confide in him before you make the mistake of your life. In most cases, this mixed up lady has come to you for counsel, asking you to tell her what to do. When church members come to you for help with problems, if it cannot be solved in a session or two, refer them to a trained professional.

The devil, however, has no intention of ever revealing a list of side effects.

If you never suffered from claustrophobia before, you do now.

It’s not so much that she poses a sexual danger to you as that by allowing and encouraging this attention from her, you will give occasion to gossips to ply their trade.

One day, in a room filled with young preacher boys, Dr.

Taylor cautioned us about the temptations we would be facing. (Fifteen years after she sat in my office making herself available to the young preacher, while preaching in another state, I spotted that woman and her husband–the same husband whose antics had given her cause to seek my counsel originally–in the congregation.

Timothy was a young pastor, and therefore needed to be forewarned about this kind of temptation.

His mentor, the Apostle Paul, spoke of the time when men in the church–not the world!“The day will come when a woman will sit in your office and proposition you. If your marriage is in trouble or if you are not up-to-date in your relationship with your Lord, you could get in big trouble fast.” I raised my hand. Taylor,” I said, “do you really believe that every one of us in this room will face this? I was thankful I had gotten this thing right in my office that day.) The writer of Proverbs tried to do the same thing Dr.” My mind was incapable of imagining a scenario in which a woman–any woman–would sit in a pastor’s office and try to seduce him. Taylor did for us in seminary that day: prepare the young lad for what he would be facing down the road.She merely feels a strong attraction to you and puts herself in a position for you to pick up on it.Consciously or unconsciously, she becomes a trap for the unsuspecting minister. She will smother you with attention, inundate you with goodies she cooked “just because I knew you liked these,” and make life miserable for you.There is the story of David and Bathsheba (II Samuel chapter 11), which came after David’s struggle to become king had succeeded and life had gotten easy for him.
