Why is the EFCA’s The Bridge Montrose in Houston, Texas Still Pushing Ravi Zacharias Material?

Why I Left My Last Evangelical Church. Consider What was Written in 2018 and the Evangelical Scandals That Came Forward

Tonight I am publishing an email I sent to my last and final small group explaining why I am disengaging and walking away from a church in the Washington, D.C. area. This email was sent in 2018. But for perception take and consider what is said Ravi Zacharias, Liberty University and more and see what happened. This email aged well.  Continue reading

Margie Zacharias and Dottie Sandusky. When Your Husband is a Predator

In late April of 2021 Margie Zacharias came out and defended Ravi Zacharias against the abuse claims from the Miller & Martin report. This post is about how two women of a sexual predator responded to the facts by living in denial. Its the story of Margie Zacharias and Dottie Sandusky. But when you consider the situation Margie Zacharias is far worse because they claimed to be born again and acted of faith. This is probably the most serious case of denial that this blog has written about. Continue reading

Tom Nelson and Nathan Miller’s video is encouraging and this blog welcomes their discussion on transparency.

Greg Strand Fumbles Sexual Abuse in the EFCA. Its Been a Month Since the Miller & Martin Report on Zacharias Sexual Abuse and the EFCA Leader Stays Silent. Meanwhile It Took Strand 24 Hours to Address The Equality Act. Why Does the EFCA Downplay Sexual Abuse?

Greg Strand has a message to all those who like to sexually abuse and those who also travel to Thailand for abuse. His message is that you’re welcome to come to the EFCA. We tolerate and welcome sexual abusers with open arms and big smiles! This is the message Greg Strand is sending as he says silent on the Ravi Zacharias situation with the Miller & Martin report. Ravi Zacharias as this blog wrote about had close ties to Trinity who frequently invited and gave the discredited abuser/evangelist a platform often. While Greg Strand is silent on sex abuse he is more fearful of a gay person. This was all communicated when it took just 24 hours for Greg Strand to address The Equality Act at the national EFCA blog. Yet a month has gone by and the Miller & Martin report remains unaddressed. This blog didn’t realize how shallow and fragile the faith of the EFCA’s executive director of theology and credentialing ultimately is.  Continue reading

A Look at Ravi Zacharias and the EFCA’s Trinity. It Appears the Carl F H Henry Center is Taking Down Zacharias Material. Meanwhile Trinity’s Rolfing Memorial Library Still Has Zacharias Material in Open Circulation

This is a post that looks at the ties that Ravi Zacharias had with the EFCA’s Trinity International University which trains the EFCA and many of its pastors. Will Trinity admit it was wrong to promote Zacharias over the years or will they stay silent? This question is of additional importance as it appears that the Carl F H Henry Center has begun to take down their Ravi Zacharias material. Meanwhile the Rolfing Memorial Library still has Ravi Zacharias material in circulation and has not acted on removing the material of a man who was found by Miller & Martin to have engaged in rape and sexual abuse. Will Trinity take the right steps? If the D.A. Carson approach to the Sovereign Grace Ministry scandal with C.J. Mahaney is any indicator, the answer is no, Trinity will not do the right thing and will continue to ignore the basic teachings of Jesus.  Continue reading

Why the Evangelical Community in the United States Should be in Deep Gratitude to Atheist Steve Baughman

Evangelicals owe Steve Baughman a debt of gratitude. They should thank the atheist for his commitment to truth and his dogged determination in pursuing Ravi Zacharias. In the end the atheist is correct and the evangelicals are wrong. Last year in a blog post I asked if atheists are to be the critics of evangelicalism? Now this blog would like to take that thought one step further. Since many evangelicals can’t police their faith or protect it from conman its time for many evangelicals to be more receptive to atheists when they raise concerns about their ministries, churches and denominations. Evangelicals need to listen to atheists more. Outsiders have the ability to observe the issues in evangelicalism with fresh light. Continue reading

The Shallow Faith of Tim Tebow. Will the Celebrity Christian Athlete Weep For the Women Ravi Zacharias Abused and Raped?

As the Ravi Zacharias scandal continues there is one aspect that is particularly troubling. Its the silence by Tim Tebow. Tebow described the scandal plagued evangelist as his personal hero. Meanwhile he has not acknowledged the Miller & Marten report documenting sexual abuse by Ravi Zacharias. And as such he has not empathized for the victims of rape and sexual abuse whether it be in Canada, Georgia or Thailand. That is damning, especially for an individual whose ministry focuses on human trafficking. In an Instagram video Tebow was near tears as Ravi Zacharias was dying of cancer. Will he weep for the victims that Zacharias abused? Continue reading
