Abedini Responds To Plagiarism Allegations
On April 13, Pastor Mike Sasso of Calvary Chapel Eagle posted this summary on the subject of revival on his Facebook page.
On April 15, the Christian Post published this article by Saeed Abedini...which looks a lot like Mike Sasso’s outline.
According to “Ben”, (who left a comment on this blog) Sasso had posted this on Facebook as well;
“Pray for Saeed Abidini
A couple weeks ago I met with him at a coffee shop. After our meeting he asked me if I would write down my thoughts and send them to him. Since then he did a series on revival on his Facebook page using the outline I sent him. When I wrote him privately to explain to him what plagiarism is he rebuked me and told me I needed to repent and that I was not a good man because in his words, the things I wrote were things “he taught me”. After that, he blocked me from his Facebook page. Something is very wrong here.”
This is no longer on Sasso’s Facebook page, but his revival outline is.
On Abedini’s Facebook page, you will find a whole series of “revival messages”…based on the outline that Sasso claims to have written.
I reached out to both Abedini and Sasso for comment…Abedini directed me to this exchange on Facebook.
Abedini also said in an email; “Why Bob Caldwell assistants are attacking me has a clear answer but I don’t want to defend myself as marriage accusations
Some pastors asked me to keep silence and Let God defend you and others and I did until today”
Mike Sasso has not responded to my message yet.
More to come, I’m sure…
