The Wondering Eagle acquired Dean Butters statement that he wrote on January 29, 2019. In it Dean explains James MacDonald and his time at Harvest Bible Chapel in the Chicago, Illinois area. This post consists of Dean’s statement alone.
“I am compelled to speak the truth about my experience now with the hope that it will help to prevent others from being spiritually manipulated and brutalized by James MacDonald and others at Harvest Bible Chapel who carry out his commands.”
“I mourn the loss of pastors who have left the ministry after their time at HBC with James. I am weighed down and distracted daily by the embarrassment that I was duped for 18 years and may have wasted the most productive years of my life.”
What good is it, my brothers, if someone says he has faith but does not have works? Can that faith save him? 15 If a brother or sister is poorly clothed and lacking in daily food, 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warmed and filled,” without giving them the things needed for the body, what good[b] is that? 17 So also faith by itself, if it does not have works, is dead.
