    I would view the source dubious. They have a well-made website designed ONLY to discredit him, run by an atheist.

    I wouldn't worry about it yet seeing it is Ravi who has brought suit against a woman and her husband for an attempted extortion.
    All kinds of snakes may be taking advantage of the present climate of sex scandals.

    I am seeing multiple sources, but I hope you guys are right and it’s just an attempt at extortion.

    I read through the lawsuit and apparently this wasn’t the first time these two tried to extort money, that’s encouraging.

    Anyhow the truth will always come to light.

    Hi all,

    Remember, no matter how this works out, that we still live by much of the testimony of David and his teachings and his relationship with God. David was a confirmed fornicator and murderer. For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God. If we really expect that men who teach the truth of God are above the sin nature of man, then I think we're expecting more than any man can deliver.

    So, for myself, I'm certainly willing to give the man the benefit of the doubt at least until this all plays out. But even then, if what he teaches is the truth of the Scriptures, then it is the truth of the Scriptures despite his being nothing more than a sinful man.

    Paul, the greatest apostle charged with teaching the gospel and spreading it throughout the known world at that time, had persecuted and given authority for others to persecute the early christians. Despite Paul's admitted sin, for he even declares himself to be a chief sinner, I believe that in his teaching he spoke the truth. If any of us claim to be without sin, then we are liars. Perhaps this is Mr. Zacharias' sin for which Jesus died.

    We need to be careful that we worship the Creator and not the created.

    God bless,
    In Christ, ted

    I like ravi but if he is doing wrong or did wrong i really hope he confesses it and repents. and if people are falsely accusing him then they should stop that. if he lied about his credentials then he needs to explain why he did what he did (did he or was that a false accusation?).

    he is supposed to be a representative for Christianity, I hope he won't let his fear of a loss in popularity or a lessening of his image in peoples eyes corrupt him from doing what God desires him to do.

    Can you post other sources as the only sources I have found are heavily atheist and only use lies to discredit him. Sites like RaviWatch and Pathoes are not credible sources.

    One should never put too much trust in anyone on Earth because we are all capable of sin. We should also do everything to ensure that others don't put that in us.

    Ministers should always point out that only God is worthy of our faith and should humble themselves not judge others for their weaknesses.

    Two Posts Containing Ravi Zacharias’ Personal Emails Were Removed: Why? (Updated)


    What troubles me is the lack of response from RZIM. After they stated they would address it. There was also a overhaul of his bio taking down a lot of academic claims.

    Finally, what is concerning is that it appears the alleged lawsuit has been settled outside of court.

    I pray only the truth comes to light.

    The site you listed is nothing more then a blog and not a credible news source. Again if you want to make claims you have to show valid news sources like I have done every time a make a thread on a news story, not blog site or atheist sites. Now if it was settled outside of court does not mean much as we do not know what was said or done. So to say otherwise is nothing more then gossip.

    The only site that I would trust with coverage right now is the Christian Post. In an article, they just laid out the situation and made no claims. They said they contacted RZIM. RZIM refered them to their FB response.

    But you are right, I don't want to start gossiping about it. My intention of the post was if anyone had heard about this, and could easily disprove it. I hope we hear official word from RZIM soon.

    ^^^ i quickly scanned the Christianity Today article and I don't see how Ravi is now in the clear.

    The accusations of misrepresenting credentials still stand. That's bad enough in itself. .And the issue with the married woman online relationship has now been settled out of court. That does not constitute being in the clear.

    This is probably a more common problem than is appreciated, especially when it comes to people trying to market themselves for income.

    So he says. If he is innocent, why would he settle out of court? Why does he need to pay her to keep her silent?

    Did you read the part where in an email to her, he threatens to commit suicide if she disclosesto her husband their online relationship? Which part of this sounds to you like being in the clear?

    I am not trying to gossip mindlessly. We are all sinners. I am a sinner. I sin everyday. The Ravi situation is a reminder to us all, or at least to me, to not get comfortable with my sinful nature.

    And I think the community is doing a disservice to Mr. Zacharias by ignoring the issue and not correcting him, however gently he needs to be corrected.

    He was the one who filed the lawsuit against her and her husband. Who said he paid them anything?
