Therefore to him that knoweth to do good, and doeth it not, to him it is sin. – James 4:17

Brother Cam stopped by Pastor Rollins’ office unexpectedly late Monday evening after noticing his car parked outside. Monday is normally his day off, Brother Cam thought.Well, let me see what is going on with him.

The main door to the offices was unlocked so he let himself in. He quietly pushed open the secretary’s door and looking across the room saw that Kirby’s door was slightly ajar. There were low voices coming from his office.

“That was sweet of you,” one voice said.

“That’s because I’m a sweet guy. One more for the road,” another voice said. That sounds like Pastor Kirby’s voice, Brother Cam thought.

After a few minutes of silence, the first person spoke again. “Don’t you think you should hurry home to your wifey now?”

“And don’t you think you should hurry home to your husband now. I am sure Brother Marvin is waiting for his dinner.” Definitely Kirby’s voice.

“Not ‘Brother’; he never attends church. Here, help me button up.”

Brother Cam peered through the crack between the door and the wall to see Pastor Kirby helping a rather voluptuous woman button her blouse in the front.

“You’re the best counselor I know,” she said, stepping away from behind the desk. “Keep counselling me like this and I’ll remain a member of your church forever.”

Brother Cam thought of barging in, but so as not to cause embarrassment to the woman, he stepped a few paces from the door and shouted, “Pastor Kirby, are you in the office? This is Cam. Saw your car in the parking lot.”

Darn, Kirby thought. He’s the last person I need to see right now. He quickly darted to open the door as Brother Cam pushed it.

“Hey, Pastor Kirby. I was just driving by on my way home and saw you might be here, so I decided to stop by to discuss some things with you…Oh, excuse me! I didn’t know you had company.” Turning to the young woman who was blushing, he introduced himself. “I’m Cameron; you can call me Brother Cam though.”

“I’m Anise, Sister Anise Caverly. Pleased to meet you,” she said somewhat hesitantly as she shook his outstretched hand.

“Yes, Cam. This is Mrs. Anise. She stopped by to tell me she was interested in volunteering to help our secretary out. I was just running through a few preliminaries with her.”

I bet you were, Brother Cam thought. “Do you have a minute or are you still busy?” he asked.

“No. No. I’m free. She was just leaving,” Kirby replied.

After Sister Anise left, Brother Cam slammed the door. “Okay, Kirby, cut the crap! I know what I heard and what I saw. You have not learned your lesson. You are still running women. Do you know what that means?”

Pastor Kirby tried to keep a calm and controlled expression on his face.

“That means more m-o-n-e-y in my pocket if you want me to be quiet about it. Let me see,” Brother Cam said looking up at the ceiling. “You now pay me $1600 to take care of little Solomon from an affair you had with my niece, Sandy, who is also little, might I remind you. This Anise Caverly thing is big – caught you red handed – so that doubles my earnings, which means my next check from you should be $3200.”

Lowering his eyes to meet Pastor Kirby’s, he chuckled, “But I am a merciful person and I love to give people a second chance, in your case, a third chance, so I’ll just charge $600, which means I should expect $2200 deposited in my account or written as a money order — makes no difference to me, my brother.”

The grim look on Pastor Kirby’s face said better what words could not say. He slowly shook his head. “Fine, Cam. Whatever you say. Now, why did you actually stop by?”

“I came to let you know Sandy decided to go off to college. I’m not sure if you’ve already heard about her decision.”

Pastor Kirby remained silent. He could not indicate, even in the slightest, that he and Sandy were still seeing each other and that he was responsible for putting the thought of returning to college in her head.

Brother Cam studied Pastor Kirby as he spoke. “She has decided to go out of state — to Texas. I can’t recall the name of the university she applied for. You don’t look surprised.” Pastor Kirby shrugged his shoulders. “I’m just glad she’s decided to go on with her life. Who’s going to care for Solomon in her absence?”

“His Aunt Mitzie. She loves him to death,” Brother Cam said. “On second thought, maybe I should drop him off at your house so he’ll grow up with his siblings and his real father…” He let the words linger in the air for a moment as if to see the effect they would have on Kirby’s countenance, before continuing. “But, no. I don’t wish to scare your poor wife. Now, just because I told you this information does not mean that you are free to see her. I still want you to stay away from her. Just remember — one phone call to the right person can and will bring you down. Have a good evening, Kirby.”

Giving Cam a few minutes to be certain he was gone, Pastor Kirby called Sandy.

“Hey, sugah’, your uncle just stopped by to give me the good news. What college have you chosen?”

“TCU,” Sandy said.

“That’s a good college. In fact, my assistant pastor went there…Don’t worry, I did not let on that I knew you were leaving for college….When do you leave?…Okay, I’ll try to see you before then….Are you going to drive down or take the bus?”

“No,” Sandy replied. “The family is going to drive down with me in my car so I’ll have it available. Then we’re going to look into renting me a place, instead of my having to stay on campus.”

“Don’t forget to give me your address as soon as you get settled in. I might be able to pop in.”

“I won’t forget,” Sandy promised. “I have to go.”

Sandy settled down in Texas, and in searching for a church to attend, she ended up visiting New Mount Zion Missionary Baptist Church. In conversing with Sister Montague, her personal shepherdess, she found they had one thing in common – Ninth St. Baptist Church and Pastor Kirby Rollins.


Thank you for joining us for this episode of Whyte House Family stories. You may purchase a copy of this novel and any other Christian fiction books read on this podcast from Amazon.com.

Now, dear listener, please know that God—the divine Author of all things—wants to write a great story with your life as well. But first you must give Him the pen by trusting Him with the life He gave you and surrendering your heart to Jesus Christ as Savior. Here is how:

1. Accept the fact that you are a sinner, and that you have broken God’s law. The Bible says in Ecclesiastes 7:20: “For there is not a just man upon earth that doeth good, and sinneth not.” Romans 3:23 reads: “For all have sinned and come short of the glory of God.”

2. Accept the fact that there is a penalty for sin. The Bible states in Romans 6:23: “For the wages of sin is death…”

3. Accept the fact that you are on the road to hell. Jesus Christ said in Matthew 10:28: “And fear not them which kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul: but rather fear him which is able to destroy both soul and body in hell.” The Bible says in Revelation 21:8: “But the fearful, and unbelieving, and the abominable, and murderers, and whoremongers and sorcerers, and idolaters, and all liars, shall have their part in the lake which burneth with fire and brimstone: which is the second death.”

4. Accept the fact that you cannot do anything to save yourself! The Bible states in Ephesians 2: 8, 9: “For by grace are ye saved through faith: and that not of yourselves: it is a gift of God. Not of works, lest any man should boast.”

5. Accept the fact that God loves you more than you love yourself, and that He wants to save you from hell. Jesus Christ said in John 3:16, “For God so loved the world, that He gave His only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life.”

6. With these facts in mind, please repent of your sins, believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and pray and ask Him to come into your heart and save you this very moment. The Bible states in the book of Romans 10:9, 13: “That if thou shalt confess with thy mouth the Lord Jesus, and shalt believe in thine heart that God hath raised Him from the dead, thou shalt be saved.”

“For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.”

Dear friend, if you are willing to believe on the Lord Jesus Christ for salvation, please pray with me this simple prayer: Heavenly Father, I realize that I am a sinner and that I have done some bad things in my life. For Jesus Christ sake, please forgive me of my sins. I now believe with all of my heart that Jesus Christ died for me, was buried, and rose again. Lord Jesus, please come into my heart and save my soul and change my life today. Amen.

If you believed in your heart that Jesus Christ died on the cross, was buried, and rose again, allow me to say, congratulations on doing the most important thing in life and that is accepting Jesus Christ as your Lord and Saviour!

Jesus Christ said in John 10:9, “I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture.”

May God bless you until next time.
