Drugs Found on Megachurch Pastor Found Dead in Times Square

“A white powdery substance” was found to be on the body of 42-year old megachurch pastor, Zachery Tims, who was found dead in his hotel room in Times Square this week.  Law enforcement officials have confirmed the substance to be drugs, but are still withholding the cause of death.
Tims was the head of an 8,000-member church, the New Destiny Christian Center, in Orlando, Florida.   His body was found in the W. Hotel.  It was discovered by a working who was trying to check the minibar in his room, who then found that the room was latched from inside.  Tims was found inside the room lying on his back between the bedroom and living room.
An official familiar with the case said “what that white powdery substance is and whether it played a role in Mr. Tims’ death is still to be determined.”
Police found no signs of trauma and do not yet suspect foul play.  The pastor was at a meeting in New York and planned to leave for Texas shortly thereafter.  He’d grown up as a drug addict in Maryland and claimed that he’d been saved from his drug addiction in a book that was published in 2006.  He earned degrees in Accounting and Theology in Baltimore and moved to live in Orlando with his wife in 1996.
Tims divorced his wife in 2009 after she found that he’d been having a long-term affair with a stripper.  They were married for 15 years and had four children.

As simple as this may be sound, I know that none of us is beyond the reach of temptation. But I thank GOD that none of us are beyond the abillity to be rescued by the GRACE of the LORD JESUS. I pray for that branch of Zion because now there exists a real opportunity to show up for GOD or fold up with Satan.
