The faithful of the church called New Life Christian Church, located in the state of Indiana in the United States, witnessed a totally surreal scene, as reported by the Daily Mail on Tuesday May 24, 2022. That day, Pastor Lowe had just revealed to those present in this place of worship that he had “sinned” 20 years ago. The latter confessed to having committed adultery, without however mentioning the age of the person with whom he had “sinned” at the time. After formally asking the Church for forgiveness, he received a standing ovation from his followers.
It was then that a 43-year-old woman came to disrupt the office by storming the stage. It was actually the person Pastor Lowe had “sinned” with 20 years ago. Baptized Bobi Gephart, the latter claimed that “it was not only adultery”, because she was only 16 years old at the time. For information, the legal age of consent in Indiana is precisely set at 16 years. “For 27 years I lived in a prison… I lived in a prison of lies and shame. Lying to protect the Lowe family. For years I thought I was a horrible person , having suicidal thoughts and not realizing what was really done to me,” she said.

“I would still be in jail if my brother hadn’t told me two weeks ago what he had seen as a teenager that had bothered him all those years: his pastor in bed with his little sister” , continued Bobi Gephart, before speaking directly to Pastor Lowe. “You did things to my teenage body that should never have been done. If you can’t admit the truth, you have to answer to God. You’re not the victim here,” he told her. she launched. Subsequently, the clergyman had to face the wrath of his followers, forcing him to confess that everything Bobi Gephart had just said was true. Pastor Lowe eventually resigned.
