Ep. 118: Liberty University, Wycliffe Associates, Bethlehem Baptist, and the SBC

On today’s program, the Bible translation organization Wycliffe Associates continues to make ambitious claims about its work, but is able to provide few details or evidence of results. And troubles continue at McLean Bible Church in the suburban Washington, DC, area.  We’ll have the latest.

We begin today with a lawsuit against Liberty University.  The suit has been brought by victims of sexual assault that the victims say Liberty should have prevented.

A couple of housekeeping items before we go.  First, a reminder that “Faith-Based Fraud” is now available at Audible.com.

Secondly, a reminder to support your local church first, and your favorite and carefully researched ministries second, but if you have a bit extra that you can give MinistryWatch to help us help you and others become more effective and informed stewards, we would – of course – be grateful.  To make a gift to MinistryWatch any time, not just at year-end, go to www.MinistryWatch.com and hit the donate tab at the top of the page.

Finally, for any listeners in Colorado Springs.  Warren Smith be in Colorado next week and would love to have lunch with you.  We’re doing a lunch in Colorado Springs on the 27th.  Check your daily email from MinistryWatch for an EventBrite link to sign up.  And if you don’t live in Colorado, stay tuned.  Now that COVID is lifted, I’ll be traveling a bit more, and I hope to do donor, reader, and listener lunches in Atlanta, Orlando, Dallas, Nashville, and other cities in the near future.

The producers for today’s program are Rich Roszel and Steve Gandy. We get database and other technical support from Cathy Goddard, Stephen DuBarry, and Casey Sudduth.  Writers who contributed to today’s program include Steve Rabey, Anne Stych, Kim Roberts, Bob Smietana, Shannon Cuthrell, and Adelle Banks.

Until next time, may God bless you
