ETL.011: “Ordinary People, Extraordinary Faith” Interview with Chuck Shaffer (Part 1) on the Downward Spiral that Landed this Christian Man in Federal Prison

Play

In this episode we continue with our new feature: “Ordinary People, Extraordinary Faith” Interviews. This episode is our third interview.

Ordinary People, Extraordinary Faith Interview:

In this interview (part 1) Chuck Shaffer speaks very candidly about his mistakes of allowing the pressures of his professional, family, and ministry life to lead him down a destructive path that landed him in federal prison.  How these same pressures are very common to us all and that ignoring them or inappropriately responding to them can cost you what is most precious to you, including your career, family, and faith.  Chuck speaks to issues many Christians and churches are unwilling to address but that permeate, to some degree, virtually every congregation and how local churches can easily, though unintentionally, contribute to the problem and ways to change that.

The chilling part of all of this is that where Chuck was (the pressures he faced and feeling powerless to address them) is where many, many Christians are today.  Is hitting rock bottom the only way to finally begin to turn things around?  Surely not!

Listen to hear as Chuck…

  • Gives advice to Christians who are feeling the very same kinds of pressures he faced and failed to address
  • What fellow Christians can do to perhaps intervene and avert a horrible tragedy in someone’s life
  • Recommendations for local church families to stop inadvertently contributing to the problem (and YES the problem is there) and start helping

In Part 2  of the interview (podcast episode 12) we will hear how Chuck began to rebuild from nothing.  His journey of rebuilding his faith, his family, and his entire life.

Scriptures referenced (though the specific texts were not mentioned)

  • 2 Corinthians 6:14
