It’s time for Christian donors to pull the plug on World Vision.
Instead of sending their money to an organization that has become CINO (Christian in Name Only) ship it to Franklin Graham’s Samaritan’s Purse where it won’t be used to support the Left’s version of the Great Commission.
Under Rich Stearn’s bumbling leadership World Vision lurches from one public relations catastrophe to another. Just two years ago Stearns almost sank the organization when he told Christianity Today World Vision “will no longer require its more than 1,100 employees to restrict their sexual activity to marriage between one man and one woman.”
You don’t have to be Kim Davis to know that means homosexual wedding showers are heading for the break room.
Stearns claimed the change was very narrow — like the door to Heaven — and he had the gall to say the capitulation didn’t violate Biblical law. Even AP couldn’t stomach that. It called the collapse of moral direction and Biblical truth, “a dramatic policy change on one of the most divisive social issues facing religious groups.”
In one fell swoop World Vision went from a Bible–believing Christian charity to the Ford Foundation with a morning devotional. (I’m giving Stearns the benefit of the doubt on the devotional.) In just 48 hours World Vision lost 5,000 individual donors, 60 churches withdrew their support and headquarters employees began resigning.
Stearns was mystified. As he sat in the ashes like Job, he mused that if he “could have a do-over on one thing, I would have done much more consultation with Christian leaders.”
But he just ran out of time, what will all the meetings with The New York Times editorial board, the Human Rights Campaign and the cast of The Laramie Project.
Now World Vision has a new disaster, this time involving the Religion of Peace. Complete details in my Newsmax.com column (It’s worth the click):
