Reader: Ted Haggard's humanity is comparable to the Apostle Paul's

Word has it that Ted Haggard's TLC special, Scandalous, could lead to a regular reality series for the comeback-seeking pastor, who made national headlines for his dalliance with male escort Mike Jones.

But a reader commenting on a June post about attendance at his new church thinks his heart's in the right place -- and how.

Link Fuller writes:

Although Haggard's calling and ministry is not comparable to the Apostle Paul, his humanity is; glad Paul accepted the gift of grace and forgiveness from Jesus and wrote half the New Testament after his horrendous and murderous persecution of the early followers of Christ. Be encouraged Ted and Gayle, and may the Lord bless and empower the ministry He has given you.
