'Criminal, sociopathic, satanic': Christian leaders react to Ravi Zacharias sex abuse report

The Christian and Missionary Alliance

In a statement, Zacharias’ denomination, the Christian and Missionary Alliance, said that in light of the late apologist’s “pattern of sinful behavior that has caused enormous pain to many and undermined the witness of Christ’s Church,” it's decided to posthumously expel him “from licensed ministry in our denomination.”

“This comes with the automatic revocation of his ordination,” the group said. 

“We are deeply grieved over the pain suffered by Lori Anne Thompson, the massage therapists, and others who may have been victimized by Mr. Zacharias’ behavior, and support appropriate advocacy efforts on their behalf. Mr. Zacharias’ actions were in direct violation of his obligation to demonstrate his commitment to serve Christ and His people through his devotion, character, lifestyle, and values.”
