It is called and “extramarital affair”. But it was a spy who led to the downfall of the CIA director.
David Petraeus was a star on the battlefield, commanding the Iraq and Afghanistan wars, but was undone by “poor judgment” in engaging in an extramarital affair that led to his downfall as CIA director.
Just two days after his 60th birthday, Petraeus stepped down from the spy agency where he had held the top office since September 6, 2011.
“After being married for over 37 years, I showed extremely poor judgment by engaging in an extramarital affair.
Such behavior is unacceptable, both as a husband and as the leader of an organization such as ours.
This afternoon, the President graciously accepted my resignation,” Petraeus told the shadow warriors he commanded at CIA.
It was a stunning downfall for a revered military man who was seen as one of the top American leaders of his generation and was once considered a potential contender for the White House.
Men in power are weak for younger women.
It has been like this from the ancient Biblical age up to our days.
For from within, out of men’s hearts, come evil thoughts, sexual immorality, theft, murder, adultery,greed, malice, deceit, lewdness, envy, slander, arrogance and folly.
King David of Jerusalem is a prominent example. Because of the beauty of a woman, he killed her husband.
The best way to get access to top military secrets, is to lead a general into sexual sins.
Or a defense minister.
In 1963 in the United Kingdom, Secretary of state of War, John Profumo was the target.
He gave nuclear secrets away in bed with a young prostitute, hired by the KGB. Her name was Christian Keeler.
Now it was David Petraeus. Nothing seems to be new under the sun.
Without the spirit of life reigning in your heart, the enemy will have accesses to your life. Only Jesus the Messiah can protect a man from falling into sexual sins.
