Skip to comments.Spiritual adviser: ‘Darkness’ gripped Mark Sanford
Posted on 07/01/2009 4:40:37 AM PDT by Dr. Scarpetta
Each Sunday afternoon in May, Gov. Mark Sanford and his wife hosted five other couples at the executive mansion for a spiritual "boot camp."
Topics discussed during the hour-and-a-half-long sessions included forgiveness and "not loving your wife as Christ loved the church."
The Culbertsons have a waiting list for their boot camps, which theyve held for about four years.
They often hold the Bible study groups at their spacious colonial house overlooking Lake Katherine.
The Sanfords asked to take part and even offered the governors mansion as a meeting place.
Culbertson said the course is "pretty intense." He quizzes prospective participants and asks them not to start the course if they dont intend to take it seriously.
"But they both committed to doing the work," he said, "and they both did all the work."
Besides Bible readings and prayer, the Culbertsons stage what they call a "date night," where spouses interview each other.
Culbertson said the boot camp is "not a marriage course, but marriages benefit from it."
"Because it challenges husbands and wives to talk about things eternal that typically we wont do unless were in a structured environment," he said.
"So its to challenge you in your spiritual life, in your walk with the Lord."

Something else got “gripped”.
Darkness ain’t all that gripped Sanford...
Darn,beat me by much!
I just woke up 3 minutes before you!
JUST REsIGN AND GO AWAY YOU SLEAZEBAG
Heck, given the right woman, darkness is in HER grip.
Riiiiight. Better rethink your ad campaign, bud.
Sorry to be “judgemental” but Sanford is a POS who lied to his wife, friends, constituents and even his spiritual advisor. His best option now is to shut up and go away. No more revelations about other affairs or details of this one. Just fade into oblivion...
I have to remember to log on first before I feed the cats!
Is Sanford the source for all these intimate details? If so, something is seriously wrong with the man and if not, he sure does have a lot of enemies.
I didn’t initially think he should resign but geez, think of your family for a change mister! TMI every time he opens his mouth and his latest blathering makes me seriously question his competency to hold office.
That has always been my problem with the bozo politicians. If you ain’t smart enough to not get caught doing an affair, you ain’t smart enough to be in office.
The Devil made him do it.....here come da judge
Think about it.
In the days of Moses the law of God would call upon Sanford to take his mistress as an additional wife. Guess polygamy would solve this whole thing.
