They only can tarnish his name after his death. I don’t believe that. I have faith in God and Ravi more then the media.
He abused hundreds of women. Do your research. Don't celebrate him because he's dead. He was a liar and hypocrite.
He was a pervert. Ironic here.
My heart goes out to his family.
I'm not shocked. RZ was a powerful, charismatic, globe-trotting man. We lesser creatures are "tempted". RZ and other powerful men are "TEMPTED". SHAME on those "questioning (RZ's) salvation":. That is God's business, and not yours.
Ok. I had not heard of RZ's sexual sins until I stopped to listen to THIS vid.
I read quickly through 1/2 of RZIM's own report which followed its investigation (they employed a large firm of PIs).
My message is to women: YOU are in control of YOU. If you're disgusted or alarmed by a powerful man's behavior, TRUST THAT. Do NOT second guess yourself bc of the "greatness" of the man. You CAN and MUST say NO, and remove yourself from any further contact, and report the problem behavior.
This disgraceful behavior by men will STOP when women STOP letting it. You women who are trading favors (sex for $/security) need to realize the damage to yourselves!
This is what Jesus warned about. "They sit in moses's seat therefore, do as they say but not as they do."
How can you guys support Ravi? He sexually abused many women. What a shame.
Of course Im saddened by his downfall. However whatever truth he preaches, will remain the truth. We let God deal with him as God deal with ours. God uses many men who may be far worse than Ravi. If we look at King David, he is far worse than Ravi if not equivalent. He's cunning, scheming n a murderer. Doesn't God knew beforehand that he's going to be a murderer? Doesn't God knows Ravi going to do what he does? Doesn't God knows what you n I are going to do behind everyone's back ? Yes he knows them all. We can never understand God fully .
Can anyone direct me to a clip where Ravi quotes scripture and talks about the Word using scripture? So far I’m hearing only anecdotes, stories, and philosophy. Please leave a link as I’d like to actually hear him teach scripture.
No one is righteous. All heroes in bible have failed themselves but picked up and became stronger. Those who are holy can keep accusing like their hero Lucifer. I choose broken and contrite heart. And remember that there is endless second death. Lets,all repent and get ready for that day when sun will no longer shine for us. God bless. Great hero of faith may your soul rest in eternal peace.

Amazing that people still rationalize and make excuses for this sexual predator.
A report commissioned by Ravi Zacharias International Ministries to investigate allegations of sexual misconduct by its founder, who died in May 2020, concludes the evangelical apologist, author and speaker engaged in a pattern of sexual misconduct.
Details in the report include romantic emails Zacharias sent to women; explicit photos received from younger women; and testimony from massage therapists (at least one who worked at a spa co-owned by Zacharias) of lewd behavior.One therapist reported that after Zacharias “arranged for the ministry to provide her with financial support, he required sex from her,” according to the report. She said that Zacharias made her pray with him and that he saw her as “a reward” for his long service to God.
“She said he warned her never to speak out against him or she would be responsible for the ‘millions of souls’ whose salvation would be lost if his reputation was damaged,” according to the report.
In a statement, the board of RZIM said that it was “shocked and grieved by Ravi’s actions” and said the organization needed to repent. The board also said it now believes that witnesses who spoke about Zacharias’ conduct are telling the truth.
“It must have been deeply painful for the victims of Ravi’s abuse and misconduct to tell their stories and to relive their terrible experiences as they participated in this investigation,” the board said in a statement. “To you we say directly: Words cannot come close to expressing the sorrow that we feel for what you have been through or the gratitude we feel for the bravery with which you have responded. We are so thankful to you, and we are so sorry.”
Investigators from Miller and Martin, an Atlanta law firm hired to produce the report, suggested that there are more cases they did not identify. Their report warns that they only “sought to speak with those we thought most likely to have relevant information or who otherwise reached out to us.” – Religion News Service, February 13, 2021
I don't know how anyone can listen to or promote Ravi Zacharias.
The dude was a villain, not a hero.
He preyed upon innocent women.
I just finished listening to Lori Anne Thompson's interview about
what Ravi did to her. He manipulated her and then lied about it
for years. And she's not the only one.
Ravi's sermons should be removed from all media.
1 Cor 5 -It is actually reported that there is sexual immorality among you, and of a kind that is not tolerated even among pagans, for a man has his father’s wife. 2 And you are arrogant! Ought you not rather to mourn? Let him who has done this be removed from among you.
3 For though aabsent in body, I am present in spirit; and as if present, I have already pronounced judgment on the one who did such a thing. 4 When you are assembled in the name of the Lord Jesus and my spirit is present, with the power of our Lord Jesus, you are to deliver this man to Satan for the destruction of the flesh, so that his spirit may be saved in the day of the Lord.
6 Your boasting is not good. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole lump? 7 Cleanse out the old leaven that you may be a new lump, as you really are unleavened. For Christ, our Passover lamb, has been sacrificed. 8 Let us therefore celebrate the festival, not with the old leaven, the leaven of malice and evil, but with the unleavened bread of sincerity and truth.
9 I wrote to you in my letter not to associate with sexually immoral people— 10 not at all meaning the sexually immoral of this world, or the greedy and swindlers, or idolaters, since then you would need to go out of the world. 11 But now I am writing to you not to associate with anyone who bears the name of brother if he is guilty of sexual immorality or greed, or is an idolater, reviler, drunkard, or swindler—not even to eat with such a one. 12 For what have I to do with judging ooutsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.” – Paul to the Corinthians.
However, there is nothing there. Its a mix and moisture of big academic terms. There is an aura of needing to be loved. I didn't love God. I loved Ravi. That is my personal journey now
After much time, I have finally revisited Ravi. I am not important. Nothing I say matters when transposed against the thread of the Grand Weaver….
However…all I hear is a seduction of his voice. There is a rapidity in his control of language.
"Judge not" and so I bowed in reverence to God who alone can judge rightly. I cannot pass judgment on Ravi, because I am not sinless. So I let Him who judges without partiality be the One to do it. For how can I throw the first stone when I myself is not righteous without the righteousness of Jesus imputed on me? I learned a lot from Ravi's sermons and will continue to listen again and again to his messages. If ever, I heed the admonition, "Do what they say, not what they do" and that is enough for me.
Ravi continues to be a blessing. Still his preaching and books blesses me and transforms me more and more. I regularly listen to his messages and books. A man who amassed so much of knowledge about the truth of the Lord Jesus Christ and spread it to as many as possible around the world and is still doing. Its a great great loss that God took him away but I think God foresaw what terrible monsters were waiting for him to happily bite on him and tear him apart ruthlessly and torment him to death. God sadly disapointed these ravenous wolves right at the time when their hearts rejoiced that he was caught over his mistakes. They like prowling lions were waiting to shred him apart to pieces and enjoy seeing it happen but God very badly disappointed them all.
How tragic to learn what he was involved with. We can only hope he repented and was saved when God judges him. God can bring good out of evil, and through this broken man, at least some were brought to the Lord.
Jesus was convicted and crucified unjustly, yet everyone wants to give Ravi a free pass because he’s human and anyone of us can fall just as hard. I’m not buying it at all. His perverted personal lifestyle first revealed in 2017 negates any positive influence he had when he preached before or after. His videos only have merit to those who choose to turn a blind eye to Ravi’s destructive secret lifestyle. Argue that??
He was a remarkable preacher and teacher! I loved his broadcast "Let My People Think".
Remember, God used Balaam to bless the Israelites.
Ravi Zacharias died an unrepentant sexual predator who vastly harmed too many women for decades, all while making $million$ founding & leading RZIM, now Third Ladder and Lighten Group. Out of compassion for his many victims, please delete this video.
How can these videos still be up. RZ was an abuser and sexually exploited many, many women. Give your heads a shake. And go find an honest man to listen to.
I do not believe the enemies lies
None of us are without sin. It's what we do next. Jesus will always be there for us no matter what.
I would hear again and again a message from the man of God rather than about his scandal..😭😭😭😭
I must be fair in reading about the life of David and admired him most rather than keeping my mind dwelling on his downfall to bathsheba .
Oh the irony of it all.
Is there any doubt that the Lord forgave Ravi of his sins ? I must believe that Ravi is with the Lord in heaven
Zacharias proved himself to be yet another con artist hypocrite who in real life was the exact opposite of what he preached.. He was as unholy a 'sinner' as one can get, but this shouldn't surprise to anyone. There are many more of his ilk out there, babbling on and on about piety and goodness while living contemptable secret lives. The real shame of it is that he didn't live long enough to know and face being found out.
Speaking from his own experiences.
which one of you is without sin let them be the 1st to cast as stone at this man !
All of these words, if they came out of ANYONE else’s mouth, would be just as cleaving, esoteric and enlightening in the spirit of man. So…we can judge all we want but God used this man to teach countless pieces of wisdom to mankind.
All I can say is I pray to God that he didn’t die in sin. I truly hope he repented because he really inspired me. At the end of the day, I couldn’t be angry with him because I have sinned just as he has and in the same manner. I’m disgusted with myself but God is merciful. It’s through the grace of Jesus Christ that God is merciful to us sinners. RIP Mr. Zacharia
His fall changed the landscape of Evangelicalism beyond Baker’s. His nerve to claim to be “the most admired minister of the land” and contrast himself with the “most despised minister of the land”
The irony and hypocrisy is unbelievable.
I miss this man and I hold no anger over Ravi a sinner just like me
This man has saved more souls than anyone besides billy. The devil tried to ruin him at the end but his words will live on. I love intelligent preaching. God Bless Ravi.
Some people believe that Zacharias struggled with sexual temptation, but I see a man who methodically planed his sexual sins by buying hotels in 3rd world countries and giving money that was donated by Christian's who believed their money was being used to spread the Gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and not to fullfill his perverted sexual desire's. His preaching led thousands to Jesus, but like Judas, Ravi loved to reach his hand into the money bag for his own perverted pleasures. That was a slap in the face of all who loved him and held him high up on a pedestal. Also, he caused women to fall into sin with him by paying them to fulfill his sexual desires. What did Christ say? Whoever causes these little ones to fall and stumble it would be better for that man to have a millstone tied around his neck and cast into the sea. He gave up and gave in to his sexual sins.
I believe I am forgiven ☮️
