In a recently resurfaced video from June 2018, Pastor John Gray is seen revealing to his flock that he may have been unfaithful to wife, Aventer Gray.
“We had to keep smiling because even though we were struggling, even though I was failing as a husband, I was already in front of the people, and the people can’t really receive my brokenness,” he explained. “Me and my wife just kept smiling and nobody knew we were getting ready to get a divorce … I started listening to the wrong voices and let some people get too close. She found out, and she set it off, just like a good wife should.”
Aventer, who was by her husband’s side during the confession, also spoke about the affair and explained why she stuck around.
“And then I prayed for them and him and then the devil loses,” she stated. “Because what’s not going to happen is you tell me that I’m going to lose my purpose because someone whispered to a ’16-year-old John’. The devil is a lie. I’m standing with my husband, and you can go on back to the pits of hell where you came from.”
“Was I upset? Yes. Was I heartbroken? Yes,” she said. “But you better learn how to get in there for the — what’s the vows? — better and worse so when the worst shows up you don’t run away.”
The months-old footage resurfaced just after John bought a $200,000 Lamborghini truck for his wife, which many now believe was to make amends for the affair.
