“Bad news isn’t wine. It doesn’t improve with age.”
“There can be no higher law in journalism than to tell the truth and to shame the devil.”
“News is something someone wants suppressed. Everything else is just advertising.”
An elder must live a blameless life. He must be faithful to his wife,[a] and his children must be believers who don’t have a reputation for being wild or rebellious. 7 A church leader[b] is a manager of God’s household, so he must live a blameless life. He must not be arrogant or quick-tempered; he must not be a heavy drinker,[c] violent, or dishonest with money.
8 Rather, he must enjoy having guests in his home, and he must love what is good. He must live wisely and be just. He must live a devout and disciplined life. 9 He must have a strong belief in the trustworthy message he was taught; then he will be able to encourage others with wholesome teaching and show those who oppose it where they are wrong.
Titus 1:6-9 NLT
It is out! This is the article that James MacDonald and Harvest Bible Chapel sued to prevent Julie Roys from publishing. I did some analysis on that situation in, “Why did Harvest Bible Go After The Elephant’s Debt Now? What was Julie Roys Going to Break Through World Magazine that James MacDonald is Desperate to Silence?” My question is answered when you read the article. What was published in World magazine this afternoon is troubling. Included are damning allegations of financial fraud to threats of violence. You can read that article in,”Hard times at Harvest.” The bottom line is this, if you are involved in Harvest Bible Chapel you need to leave that organization now.
