There was a thread on Twitter that discusses the Paxton Singer situation at Harvest Bible Chapel. The point of this post is to allow attenders and those who were involved at Harvest Bible Chapel to discuss Paxton. This blog has heard that Paxton also was a cabin counselor at Camp Harvest. Allegedly Harvest Bible Chapel did not notify those who attended Camp Harvest about the Paxton Singer arrest.
“Forgetting is difficult. Remembering is worse.”
“You’re not a victim for sharing your story. You are a survivor setting the world on fire with your truth. And you never know who needs your light, your warmth, and raging courage.”
People were also bringing babies to Jesus for him to place his hands on them. When the disciples saw this, they rebuked them. 16 But Jesus called the children to him and said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these. 17 Truly I tell you, anyone who will not receive the kingdom of God like a little child will never enter it.”
Luke 18:15-17 NIV
There is one issue about Harvest Bible Chapel that needs more attention. Its the situation with Paxton Singer who was arrested for sexual exploitation of a minor. You can read the report in the Chicago Tribune about the arrest in, “Former youth pastor at Harvest Bible Chapel in Aurora charged with sexual exploitation of child.” It is my concern that the issue with Paxton is only the tip of the iceberg of child sex abuse inside Harvest Bible Chapel. Recently this blog has heard that Paxton was a cabin counselor at Camp Harvest. And according to what I have heard allegedly Harvest Bible Chapel did not notify those who attended Camp Harvest who could have been exploited by Paxton. There was a good Twitter thread on Paxton Singer that I am turning into a quick post. The purpose of this blog is to let people inside and outside Harvest Bible Chapel share information and discuss the Paxton Singer situation. For the health of the communities around Chicago let’s get this topic out. If there are other situations involving child sex abuse or domestic abuse at Harvest lets flush those out as well. When you read this thread make sure you read from the bottom to top.
