Greenville, South Carolina pastor John Gray made headlines in 2018 after buying his wife Aventer a $200,000 Lamborghini SUV after he was caught cheating. Gray took to Instagram this week to “honor” his wife and admitting that he was caught emotionally cheating on his wife.
Gray spoke about stepping down from his role as pastor at The Relentless church, writing, “A few months ago I sat down from leading at Relentless. My life wasn’t in order. Church isn’t first. My wife is. This is my wife. She is from God. She is a life giver. She is a kingdom builder. Her name is Aventer.” He added, “And I’m sorry. Although you are the only woman I’ve ever slept with, emotional unfaithfulness is just as wrong. Sin is sin. People want to minimize one sin over another, when it all can get you sent to hell…My wife deserves better…So since I was the cause of public embarrassment, let me be JUST AS LOUD ABOUT PUBLIC HONOR.”
