Dear Robert Lyzenga: God Wants You to See into Their Hearts. Their HEARTS.

Pastor Robert Lyzenga, peeping Tom

Whited Sepulchre Robert Lyzenga

Whited Sepulchre Pastor Robert Lyzenga of the Sunrise Christian Reformed Church in Lafayette, Indiana, took his supervisory duties over his flock just a little too seriously. He is accused of installing cameras in stalls of the women’s restrooms at the church. Oddly, he did not supervise male members of his flock in the same devoted way.

Detectives said one of the cameras appears to have been turned on inside Pastor Lyzenga’s office, then walked into the women’s bathroom. Images on tape match his office, down to the Superman mouse pad on his desk.

Detectives discovered the three air fresheners were not really air fresheners at all, but had been made out of plastic, rectangular boxes and had been modified to hold cameras.

All three contained “Glade Air-o-matic” stickers which, upon closer examination, appeared to have been printed.

Note that this voyeurism was not a spur of the moment thing, or a “momentary lapse,” but was carefully planned over an extended period of time.

Yet how long, do you suppose, before Lyzenga starts talking about an “uncontrollable addiction” and “needing help and forgiveness,” and all that stuff Christian leaders always spout to get themselves off the hook? (But somehow never extend to others in the same boat.)

When asked to describe Lyzenga, [Elder Mark] DeYoung said he had no words.

“Last week, I would have been readily willing to describe him,” said DeYoung. “He’s been our lead pastor here for many years, he is a trusted employee, or was. Now, he is not. He is neither trusted, or an employee.”

Jesus had a perfect description for good pastor Robert Lyzenga:

Woe unto you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites! for ye are like unto whited sepulchres, which indeed appear beautiful outward, but are within full of dead [men’s] bones, and of all uncleanness.

Even so ye also outwardly appear righteous unto men, but within ye are full of hypocrisy and iniquity. – Matthew 23:27-28

    Un…believable. He used to be the pastor of my church. I never would have imagined this in a thousand years…
