He is still a muslim in thought and action. I do not believe his "conversion" was real; most people who do this are only interested in converting and ministering for easy money. The Bible says ministers of the word should have one wife. This man is not to be in this position of leadership. The church is wrong for allowing this.

It is not hypocritical to be upfront with your children about your shortcomings, or to warn them of the dangers of the situations the parents have overcome. Parents are suppose to look out for the safety and well-being of their children! Sadly today too many children do not respect or admire their parents for anything.
