RORY – Where are you? What’s happened to Rory Alec?

Rory Alec – Living life in front of a camera lens cannot be easy. Will Rory Alec be back in front of the camera as a TV presenter or music producer?  Image from Wikipedia.

“Adam where are you?” This was the question God asked after the fall of man. Given the amount of hits we’ve had on Rory Alec, many Christians are asking the same question of the former God TV CEO.

He seems to have disappeared into thin air after his confession that he had been unfaithful to his wife. She then announced on live TV that he was in South Africa, at the farm owned by the father of the woman he is said to be having an affair with… Where he is now is anybody’s guess…

But, God was not necessarily referring to Adam’s geographic position, but more a case of where was he spiritually. The same questions can be asked of each and every one of us, including Rory Alec.

In physical terms Rory Alec has vanished, the only trace being his Wikipedia page which says very little, but does include a different designation. It now says he is a music producer. It is pointless to speculate, where he is now, whether still in South Africa or Austria where the ‘other woman’ is said to be from… but what is not pointless is to question, what he will do in future?

Will Rory Alec ‘Finish Strong’ as outlined in the best-selling book ‘Finish Strong – Going the Distance for your Family by Steve Farrar? According to Farrar, only one in 10 Christian men will finish strong.

Will he end this affair and go back to his wife and fulfil his calling in Christian media? Or is it too late for that already? Will he divorce, marry this woman and start a new life?

Music production is not a new career for Rory. According to Against All Odds, he produced albums in South Africa. Although it was never obvious watching God TV, Rory is actually a musician. He was a worship leader long before he became a ‘tele-evangelist’.

God gives each of us a choice. He gives us the option to choose life or death. Although He clearly tells us which direction to take. “Choose life,” He says.  This refers primarily to salvation. We have a choice to reject God or accept Him and receive eternal life. We also have to make the right choices in our personal lives, choices that bring life and don’t cause destruction.

When it comes to our personal lives… our choices still lead to life and and death… in Rory’s case the death of a marriage, the end of his involvement in an international ministry. But there is still life for Rory Alec. God can and will forgive Him if he repents. God will even forgive Him if he divorces and remarries, but it will cause even greater hurt for all concerned.

His children will have to face all the difficulties of becoming part of a blended family. There will be the constant strain of divided loyalties, but like many, many people who have been divorced and remarried, they can and will survive.

The question will always remain, could Rory have achieved more for God if he had stayed in his marriage and continued with God TV? Or is God able to resurrect his gifting like He did with Samson?

Some may ask about the Biblical example of David (a man after God’s own heart) and Bathsheba. Yes, their ‘love child’ died, but their second child Solomon became King. Yes he was one of the greatest kings that ever lived, but look how he ended up.

These are Old Testament examples and we have a new covenant. Jesus Himself said to the accusers of the woman caught in adultery: “He who is without sin, cast the first stone.” To the woman, He simply said, “Go and sin no more.”

Ultimately, we serve the God who causes all things to work together for good for them that love Him and are called according to His purpose.  Our prayer for Rory Alec is that he finds himself.

In the meantime Christian TV fans should not forget his 20 years of sacrificial service in pioneering Christian TV in Europe. It remains a remarkable achievement.

And what is the message to each of us? Go and sin no more.

    Rory. God can and will forgive you. Your ministry has been amazing, don’t forget what you achieved with GOD and your lovely wife, Wendy. All I can say is, there for the Grace of our amazing GOD go I and us. Most of us, me especially could cast rocks, not stones. Call on our Lord Rory. He’s waiting for you with open arms, ready to hitch up his robe and start running to meet you. Love and blessings always. Xxxxx

    If he was really doing music again, someone somewhere would have seen him. It doesn’t add up. Wendy updated his wikipedia page because of the number of people asking where is he now. Did Wendy kill him in South Africa? Has anyone considered asking authorities in SA to check? I know it sounds a bit out there, but stranger things have happened… are happening all over the world now. Just a thought, anyway.

    I agree believer in Christ,
    It’s not about making this an issue it’s about praying for this issue.
    God bless you,
    Keep up the good work

    13 And here’s a second offense: You fill the place of worship with your whining and sniveling because you don’t get what you want from GOD. Do you know why? Simple. Because GOD was there as a witness when you spoke your marriage vows to your young bride, and now you’ve broken those vows, broken the faith-bond with your vowed companion, your covenant wife. GOD, not you, made marriage. His Spirit inhabits even the smallest details of marriage. And what does he want from marriage? Children of God, that’s what. So guard the spirit of marriage within you. Don’t cheat on your spouse. (‭Malachi‬ ‭2‬:‭13-15‬ MSG)

    “In the same way, you husbands, live with your wives in an understanding way [with great gentleness and tact, and with an intelligent regard for the marriage relationship], as with someone physically weaker, since she is a woman. Show her honor and respect as a fellow heir of the grace of life, so that your prayers will not be hindered or ineffective.”
    ‭‭1 PETER‬ ‭3:7‬ ‭AMP‬‬

    These are not my words – they are God’s

    ““For I hate divorce,” says the LORD, the God of Israel, “and him who covers his garment with wrong and violence,” says the LORD of hosts. “Therefore keep watch on your spirit, so that you do not deal treacherously [with your wife].””
    ‭‭MALACHI‬ ‭2:16‬ ‭AMP‬‬
