Sex abuse scandal at Zacharias ministry forces staff cuts, new direction

RZIM has experienced a steady decline in financial support as well as the loss of certification with the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability, according to Davis’ statement that was given to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.

Davis said the ministry decided to stop seeking or accepting donations until further notice.

The organization will change from a global speaking team of evangelists and apologists to a grantmaking entity, much like a charitable foundation, which will support a variety of ministries and causes.

Separately, the ministry is removing Zacharias’ content from its website and social media platforms, including publications, videos, and other forms of content.

And recently, the Colorado-based Christian and Missionary Alliance posthumously expelled Zacharias from licensed ministry in its denomination, according to its website. The move also means an automatic revocation of his ordination.

The evidence against Zacharias clearly establishes that the Christian apologist “preyed on women, violating the trust of those who were particularly vulnerable, during the time he was credentialed by the C&MA. The evidence also confirms that this pattern of behavior was longstanding,” read a statement on the Alliance’s website.

Robert M. Franklin Jr. is a professor of Christian ethics at Emory University’s Candler School of Theology and author of “Moral Leadership: Integrity, Courage, Imagination.”

Franklin said there are examples throughout history of the dangers of unchecked power, whether in the political arena or the religious world.

“This appears to be another tragic example of a downfall rooted in the lack of accountability and honesty of the leader to acknowledge when he has significant challenges and needs help,” he said.

Franklin said the current leadership at RZIM needed to make significant changes, given the damage done to the global ministry. RZIM’s transition to grantmaking is expected to take four-to-six months and will be accompanied by leadership changes, Davis’ statement said.

“There’s responsibility to repair the harm done both in Christian and spiritual terms and in secular legal terms so there can be a way to make good out of a bad situation,” he said. “Since the offending leader has died, he can no longer be held personally responsible.”

Franklin added though, that people cannot forget the women, who are the real victims.

“Ultimately, the people who have been harmed need to be acknowledged and made whole,” he said.
