GFA characterizes the entirety of the investigation a “malicious internet attack” coupled with “false accusations”, but they offer no evidence that contradicts any of the stories that have been written.
There has allegedly been an audit, but it hasn’t been released.
Thus, on the basis of the phantom audit, donors should ignore all the testimonies of malfeasance and cough up the cash.
I should probably ignore the reports I personally received last week from India too.
Here’s what I don’t want people to forget.
There are men who could clear up a great many of the questions around this “charity”.
Erwin briefly broke the “no talk” rule, but the others have been silent as proverbial church mice.
Let me explain to you what that means.
That means that these men do not feel any obligation to the people who they helped recruit to be donors and even workers for GFA.
They do not believe that said people have any worth or value beyond their ability and willingness to finance the operation.
The people of God are beneath the respect of being answered with real facts and information.
The assembly is insignificant in their eyes compared to the needs and desires of “leadership”.
That is spiritual abuse and a crime against the cross, an utter dereliction of the duties of a shepherd.
The same goes for the others out there who I know for a fact have information they refuse to offer the people of God.
While I’m at it, please spare me the tearing of garments, tossing of ashes, and wringing of hands, over gays. liberals, and “enemies of the faith”.
If you think God will bless a church that allows this to allegedly happen to it’s people, you’ve either never read the book, or you’ve lost your mind.
We have seen the enemy… and it is us.
Psychopaths, sociopaths, and narcissists…
We read a lot about how certain leaders are one or more of the above.
I’ve written such myself.
I’m a blogger, not a psychiatrist or a mental health clinician.
I’m not qualified to make those kinds of assessments.
What we can say is that some people in leadership are sinners sinning against the Body of Christ.
I have other descriptive terms I use offline that I’m more qualified to speak and more practiced in using…
Merle Haggard died yesterday…
If you’re looking for a sign of the times, it may be that the giants keep falling and are replaced by dwarfs…
Thank you for your patience…
T is home and well and we are thankful to God for it.
I still covet your prayers for my health going forward.
