Potters Field “Ministries” Soliciting Donations, Ignoring Victims
While the letter claims that PFM is doing great work overseas, it also neglects to mention that many who were facilitating that work have left the ministry, citing issues with spiritual and financial integrity.
It also makes no mention of the fact that there has been no recognition of the the alleged abuses that are chronicled on this site against interns, no repentance made for those alleged abuses, and no recompense for the damage done by those alleged abuses.
There is nothing in the letter about the scandals that rocked the organization except a note that “some things have changed”.
It fails to mention that the Calvary Chapel Association and Rob McCoy have both deemed the organization unworthy of support.
Like the unrepentant cowards I believe them to be, Mike and Pam Rozelle don’t even put their names on the document.
Why would any Christian donate to a ministry working with young people and children without a full hearing over alleged abuses against young people?
What is being employed here is a familiar tactic of churches and other organizations caught in scandal.
They circle the wagons and say nothing while waiting for the news cycle to fade so they can rebuild as if nothing untoward happened.
Accountability is refused.
Victims are first ignored and then forgotten.
The leaders move on with the power and money.
Hell rejoices at every check written.
The church absorbs another blow to its sanctity and credibility and sin abounds while souls are broken.
Those who truly follow Jesus must stand against this and demand a that a full reckoning of the issues around Potters Field be made and be made now.
