Ep. 43: James MacDonald, Jerry Falwell, Jr., and Why MinistryWatch Covered The Ravi Zacharias Story

On today’s program, new sexual abuse charges have been leveled against the recently deceased Christian apologist Ravi Zacharias.  We’ll have the latest.  Also on today’s program:  When unwanted or disruptive people log on to your Zoom meeting, that’s come to be called Zoombombing.  It’s starting to happen in church services and other worship gatherings.  We’ll have a report.  And we’ll have the latest installment in our Generous Living series.  Today a couple from Manhattan who gave up the Wall Street lifestyle so they could support God’s work.

Up first today, an update on a story we first brought you in July. Blackbaud, one of the nation’s largest fundraising and donor management companies, announced this week that the personal data of some donors to charities that use the Blackbaud’s software was exposed to cybercriminals.

Regular listeners to the podcast know that through the month of September we were offering a copy of my new book “Faith-Based Fraud” to anyone who made a donation to MinistryWatch.  The demand for the book has been so great that we have printed more books and we’ve extended that offer through October.   So if you missed the offer in September, it’s not too late.  If you’d like to know more or make a donation, you can go to www.MinistryWatch.com and hit the DONATE button at the top of the page.

Each week, Warren and Natasha bring you news about Christian ministries, as well as the latest in charity and philanthropy, news that we examine from a Christian worldview perspective.  Our goal is to help us become better stewards of the resources God has entrusted to us.

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 Christina Darnell, Bobby Ross, and Warren Smith.  We also received editorial assistance this week from our friends at The Non-Profit Times.

May God bless you.
