For those who may not know, here is a profile on how Ravi Zacharias’ ministry used accoutibility structures and handled their coverup:
@Questions. Those are really good questions. I’m assumming the “authorities” were Child Protective Services. Who did they hire for their internal investigation? I was also waiting for the Brooklyn Tabernacle to issue a public statement to the church about the allegations, but I never saw one.
They did, however issue a statement about Ravi Zacharias:
Pastoral Staff Statement: Ravi Zacharias
The Christian world has been both shocked and saddened recently by revelations concerning Ravi Zacharias, the noted author and apologist, who spoke at The Brooklyn Tabernacle on a number of occasions. It has become clear that he was living a life that denied the Christian faith that he professed.
Our prayers go up for the victims who were abused and manipulated, and who are going through deep emotional trauma; for the families of the victims; and for Ravi Zacharias’s family.
This tragic story is a reminder of two verses from the New Testament:
- “Therefore let anyone who thinks that he stands take heed lest he fall.” – 1 Corinthians 10:12
- “But encourage one another daily, as long as it is called ‘Today,’ so that none of you may be hardened by sin’s deceitfulness.” – Hebrews 3:13
May God keep us all daily close to Jesus.
