    Hello Dear Friends & Family,

    I would like to share with you an urgent prayer request, and also some background information to this prayer request. The last couple of weeks have been tragic, to say the least. A number of attempts were made to take my life through poisoning. As a result I was confirmed by a medical doctor to have life threatening amounts of arsenic, aphrodisiacs and radiation in my body.

    About 10 years ago my world came crashing down when my husband falsely accused me of spiritual adultery and adultery. These terms have devastating effects to anyone in ministry, as I was, and it caused a major scandal in the Church. The Bylaws of our corporation allowed him, as President of 3ABN, to hire and fire his Vice-Presidents for any or no reason. Almost immediately I was without "a voice" to counteract the lies which were being circulated about me, other than my website. Yet the TV, Radio, website, mailing list, prayer line, etc. were used to destroy my reputation. Claims were made that I had met with a small committee to the Board of Directors prior to this action. This is not true. I was fired by my husband without the ability to meet with any of the Board members. When I pursued this opportunity, I was directed to the 3ABN attorney.

    Strangely, Dan said to me, "They said they will follow you the rest of your life." Others claim that Dan said similar things to them. I began to have break-ins to my place of residence the same week that Dan and I separated. During the last ten years my place of residence has suffered damage and theft. It was used as a vehicle to send threatening messages to me.

    There was evidence my phones and computer were bugged. I moved from my home in Springfield, Illinois because of the intensity of the thug activity. Eventually, my beloved dog, Sheltie, was poisoned. Before he died he was thrown over the balcony, by a thug, of my second story condominium while he was momentarily resting outside of my door on the porch.

    I have been in court with my ex-husband for ten years with the intent of acquiring a fair marital settlement. The truth about my exit will be revealed in these court documents. The case, in my opinion, has had a number of unnecessary delays including Protective Orders imposed by DS and his attorneys.

    However, the case is now nearing it's conclusion. I have reason to believe that a portion of 3ABN's funds are being misused. I say this with caution, as I love 3ABN.

    Truth, however difficult, is liberating. Many, many people have suffered as the result of our divorce, and also the false claims made about me. It has always been my intent to reveal the truth as the documentation was made available. But now...considering the circumstances, there's no better time than the present.

    It was painful to discover that Dan's soon wife to be, made her appearance at 3ABN the same week we separated, according to the reports given to me. It was also very painful when Dan married one 24 years his junior, one who's vocation was that of a nude dancer. The marriage lasted 3 years. Dan is the caretaker of Brandy's child, who was born just 4 years before our divorce. The parentage of this child is in question.

    Mabel Dunbar, a professional who works with abused women, shared with me that prisons of literally full of men who have killed their wives. She counsels that the very best thing to do is to make the truth plain to the people. This is the best safety net for a woman in danger. I cannot prove that the thugs have been paid for or appointed by my ex-husband, so I am not stating that he is the one behind the dangerous activity. But the facts I do know, I share.

    I have nearly completed a book about my life. Although it shares the good times and the bad, it is glorifying to the Lord. But in the case that my life is cut short, the painful facts about the scandal I have shared with you. May no other woman on earth have to endure what I have had to endure. I do hope and pray that some changes can be made which prevent such a violation of human rights.

    So my prayer request is that myself and my family will be protected from the unsavory characters that have and are abusing my life. It is prayer that has protected my life thus far.

    Although you do not see me on the screen anymore, many of your faces I can still see. Meeting you and ministering to you was always my greatest love. May God's richest blessings continue to be yours!

    His love & mine, Linda

    I hope and pray for her safety; and the quick capture and prosecution of those involved in these threats. May the truth come to light for all to see.

    Fast-fwd a lot of years and apparently something very big may have been successfully swept under the proverbial carpet. Shameful.

    My heart has been heavy. Many posts say we shouldn’t gossip about the situation but many people in high-power positions do not want questions asked and often go to any extreme to keep secrets safe. Linda Shelton was treated horribly and I do believe it was to cover something very big. Sad.

    this stared in 2004 when her son went to Counseling in Norway. The counselor used a method in which he was dealing with the underlying causes of addiction. This ment that they dealt with the root causes. In order to do this they started talking with her son about why he was having problems with drugs. He began talking about the problems and when and why he stared. Part of the process was to involve the family. Well Linda was on the phone with him, she dropped him off in Norway and returned to 3ABN in Illinois, USA. He husband Danny Shelton Got wind of this and began listening in to the conversation. He did not like what he heard and began distancing himself from Linda.this was in Feb of 2004. He systematically removed all her picture from the the 3ABN and pronounced Linda's departure, on air for the whole world to hear, from 3ABN in May or June of that years. In the course of time people began asking questions. Blogs, websites and Forums were set up and ablaze with the news coming out of 3ABN. It turns out that Danny's brother was a pedophile and may have gotten to the boy. Tommy Shelton Danny's brother, was convicted in Virginia on pedophilia charges. Tommy has had accusation follow him around his entire adult life. every where he went he was accused to of multiple acts pedophilia including at 3ABN by at at least 2 different people. It is my belief that this is the bases of the smear campaign and attempt on Linda's life. Now it get in even worse that Danny himself has been accused of attempted rape of Linda Shelton's daughter, by Linda's daughter. in 2006 she mad a public stating the detail of the attempted rape. This may also be why Linda's life is under threat. Linda published a book or was going to publish a book and the violence began again. This is the problem. You have a Pedophile Rapist and and Accused Pedophile Rapist running 3ABN. you have a corrupt organization destroying the lives of family and supporters.

    I don't know enough about the details to say up or down on that story. But I do know that 3ABN is a privately owned business and is not run by the denomination. I have a few questions of my own about Danny Shelton - but what one family does is not a matter that determines acceptance of doctrinal statements of belief that we find in the Bible. A lot of people that contribute to the Sabbath School lesson etc on 3ABN have not been included in the family details you list above.

    while your objection sounds good, it is not valid. Danny Shelton may own 3ABN, but He is representing the SDA Church and the SDA denomination is supporting him with money contributed by the SDA people. He is given access to the denomination ,it programming it's ministers, who are supported with tithe, and it's talent. Danny Shelton Represents himself as a SDA and represents SDA teaching, practices and lifestyle. You cannot Seperate Danny's action from the denomination when they are supporting him. I SDA's love to do that, because they think it will shield them from criticism, but it really is justifying sinful behavior. it is just like Lebron James or Justin Beiber, being asked to not support China or Saudia Araiba because of their abuse and murder of their citizens. You cannot say that you stand for morality when you are actively supporting the exact opposite. A line must be drawn. outisiders and member cannot tell what you stand for.

    There is no sponsorship of Danny Shelton that I know of by the denomination - no tithe money is given to him from the denomination and he is not in any organizational structure that is administered by the denomination. details matter

    He is a lay person who has what the denomination calls "an independent ministry".

    Shelton cannot pay someone with SDA tithe dollars unless a private individual chooses to send their tithe to Shelton instead of the denomination.

    you of course can make any statement you like and hold to any POV you wish. You have free will just like all other Christians on this forum.

    You need to inform yourself a little better on the nature of relationship of the denomination and it's relationship to 3ABN. You are over confident. Why you feel the need to put up such a fight and take it personally is beyond me. This is not about you this is about Linda Shelton. The denomination if very lax on how it deal with sin amoung its members. The accusation against Danny Shelton are well attested to. Daryl Fawcett can fill you in on the detail if you want a conservative SDA you can rely on. You can also talk with Tall73. I think he know more about the financial then just about anyone here. You can't have it both way. He is an SDA and promotes SDA theology, and lifestyle. The denomination could easily clear this matter up by doing an investigation into this matter. that is the shame. The SDA inc. is suppose to control its brand and it is not doing that. If they do they will loose control of it and will not be able to calim trade infringment.
