In good conscience, I’ve felt led to edit this post nearly to oblivion. It’s grieving to me that I supported Voice of the Martyrs for years, based on my admiration and respect for its founder, Richard Wurmbrand, while being oblivious to the fact that VOM had apparently become ecumenical in nature under the leadership of Tom White, since Wurmbrand’s death.
Since the news of Tom White’s apparent suicide and molestation of a little 10 yr old girl, and the subsequent information that has come to my attention, I find that I can no longer support Voice of the Martyrs on this blog, or by financial contributions. As much as my heart cries out wanting to help persecuted Christians, I do not believe Catholics can be rightfully considered to be Christians as VOM apparently does, and has been sending aid to predominately Catholic countries for years.
Also, because VOM operates as a Christian ministry professing to doing the work of Jesus Christ, they are called to be faithful to Him and Him alone, as all Christian ministries are.
I’m pretty sure the VOM leadership does not want this to become a hot button, but the “ecumenical” issue concerning VOM needs to be made public to the general evangelical Christian community that has so warmly and perhaps blindly and ignorantly embraced VOM with their support and approval.
Catholic Takeover…the Ecumenical Movement, (or what Dr. Scott Johnson labels, “The New Inquisition”).
This is more typical of Catholic superstition and cult like practices than most evangelical Christians are aware of.
