Tom White-VOM-Investigation-Sex Scandal-Whom are You Seeking?

And Jesus asked them, Whom are you seeking?” This was a powerful question coming from the mouth of Jesus, (and I don’t believe he ever wasted words). Jesus knew they were seeking the man, Jesus of Nazareth, but they knew not they’d been sent by the spiritually blinded Pharisees to arrest the Son of God.

Whom are you seeking? When you came to this page , you were apparently seeking information or news updates about Tom White, the US director of Voice of the Martyrs, and perhaps trying to make sense of the mind boggling scandal that ensued as a result of his suicide and sexual molestation charges.

As tragic as all that is, perhaps there is something much more serious and deeper that we should be seeking in this dark hour we live in.  Have we lost focus on what it means to be repentant seekers and finders of Jesus…. I mean really seeking him– with all our hearts, minds, and strength?

Does this present day religious system bear any resemblance to the model of the early church  Jesus Himself set up? Frankly, no, it does not. The truth is,  the present organized religious system is in apostasy. The church needs to repent and turn back to Jesus and obeying  His commandments as laid out in the gospel.

Tom White was just a man. Whom should we be seeking?

Jesus~

Voice of the Martyrs is a man-made organization. Whom should we be seeking?

Jesus and the pure Gospel……only~

What does it mean to be a disciple of Jesus Christ and his Gospel?

To seek Jesus and His Gospel, and Him and His Gospel only~

No substitutes, no counterfeits, and no excuses~

Nothing added to or taken away…and yet, may I suggest that we’ve done just that, and it’s an abomination in God’s eyes.

          

18 When Jesus had spoken these words, He went out with His disciples over the Brook Kidron, where there was a garden, which He and His disciples entered. 2 And Judas, who betrayed Him, also knew the place; for Jesus often met there with His disciples. 3 Then Judas, having received a detachment of troops, and officers from the chief priests and Pharisees, came there with lanterns, torches, and weapons. 4 Jesus therefore, knowing all things that would come upon Him, went forward and said to them, “Whom are you seeking?”

5 They answered Him, “Jesus of Nazareth.”

Jesus said to them, “I am He.” And Judas, who betrayed Him, also stood with them. 6 Now when He said to them, “I am He,” they drew back and fell to the ground.

7 Then He asked them again, “Whom are you seeking?”

And they said, “Jesus of Nazareth.”

8 Jesus answered, “I have told you that I am He. Therefore, if you seek Me, let these go their way,” 9 that the saying might be fulfilled which He spoke, “Of those whom You gave Me I have lost none.” John 18

    1996 11 24.1

    Thus saith the Lord. There are those who think that they can live in the world’s system and not be influence by it, but you are. There are those who think that they can serve the world’s system and not be wrong in their relationship to Me, but they are wrong! Everything that you connect to in this world influences your heart and life with Me.

    Therefore do not spend your time outside of the will of the things of your God. He knows all that is good for you. Everything that you need to do is written, contained, and to be studied in the Word of God.

    Jei, what happened has already been covered, as much as will ever be covered, except for bits and pieces coming from “inside”, and that means those who were close to Tom White, VOM, the Bartlesville, OK PD, and the family of the little girl who was molested.

    To answer your question, was there real evidence, validity to the accusation, and what and how solid it is…it was real VALID, solid evidence, or you can be sure that VOM would have made every effort to combat any implication of wrongdoing by Tom White. Instead, they came forward from the beginning with an acknowledgment of molestation and the subsequent suicide of White, both publicly and under some public pressure, finally made an apologetic gesture toward the parents of the little girl who was molested.

    The word around town is that Tom White “took a bunch of pills”. The toxicology report, and cause of death hasn’t been publicly released yet. No surprise there. I knew it wouldn’t be.

    There was no frame-up, and covered up murder, although there will always be speculation and rumors. You can be sure the local PD, and VOM would have turned over every stone in order to protect Tom White’s reputation and their own public image.

    Other information has come my way, which I am not going to release, that indicates that Tom White was not the icon that many people have made him out to be. And why anyone would put him on a pedestal anyway is beyond belief.

    Of course, -everything seems so vague from where you’re at-that’s the way VOM, the city of Bartlesville, coupled with the Bartlesville PD want it to be, and it will remain that way. Also, minor 10 yr old children are legally protected from public scrutiny of people snooping into their abuse and pain for no legitimate reason other than idle curiosity, and that’s the way it should be.

    People need to stop making idols out of men, including Tom White, which has been the case in this situation from the beginning. It’s the work of the Wurmbrands for the glory of Jesus Christ we should be honoring, if anything, and nothing more.

    But what really happened? Is there real evidence, of the validity of the accusation, and what is it, and how solid? Can we be sure this is not a frame up and the suicide not actually a covered-up murder? I don’t know enough from a distance. What is the sure evidence, and the soure of information about it? Everything seems so vague from here.

    What in the world has outreach to other denominations got to do with the allegations? In fact, the blasting of the church system in the western world has nothing to do with this man’s actions. Keep each other accountable people!

    • Scarlett says:

      It’s very simple TH, Catholicism, which has crept in to VOM through Tom White’s leadership, IS NOT a denomination. It’s not even Christian, it has been PAGAN from the get go.

      Exposing this is in tune with trying to keep each other accountable. The question is…will the church, which has become dumbed down and apostate, keep VOM accountable, when they can’t even keep themselves accountable? How else could someone like Tom White sneak into an organization like VOM? It’s SAD he pulled the wool over the Wurmbrand’s eyes.

      • TH says:

        When I was a teenager I planned to become a priest. I’m no longer Catholic- it was like living in the Old Testament. But back to the subject. I’m real concerned that there’s a rush to get this behind us and go on and do God’s work. There is indeed a need to go do God’s work, but there is grieving to go through, and a need to clean house. Is there no spiritual discernment? Was no one’s soul troubled, and this was totally unexpected? To continue giving, I need to know that the house has been cleaned up, there has been corporate repentance, if needed, and anger and grieving to work through. I don’t know how to put that any better. I’ve seen several ministers fall, and a couple of times my spirit was troubled about the minister. I just knew something was wrong with them, but didn’t know the details.

      • Scarlett says:

        Those are the same questions I’m asking. It’s strange to me that there are so many in the church that seem resentful and angry the subject should even be brought up…the need to clean house, the need to take a deeper look, a need for corporate repentance, and the “why” there seemed to be a lack of spiritual discernment. If these issues aren’t warning signals of a decline of the church, I don’t know what would be. Serving God should never be reduced to running a business.

  5. They persecuted our Lord so now lets do the same to VOM. I DONT THINK SO! I believe God still honors the outreach of VOM.Dont be fooled by wolves in sheeps clothing. Frederick S.

    • Scarlett says:

      Frederick, there is a vast distinction between the reason Our Lord was being persecuted, and the just criticism of a man who sexually abused a 10 yr. old girl and then killed himself.

      Fact: Voice of the Martyrs has been caught embracing ecumenism, and this has been exposed and made public. This needs to be REPENTED OF AND STOPPED by the new leadership, and there needs to be a return to a true, honest, godly leadership in practice. The leaven and corruption of Catholicism and ecumenism needs to be kicked out of VOM.

      If you feel God is going to “honor” that being promoted in his name, and the name of His Son, Jesus Christ, maybe a good reading of the bible would help you distinguish the truth from the deception, as well as who actually are the wolves in sheep’s clothing.

  6. Scarlett says:

    Your comment speaks for many of us who’ve also learned to love and trust our wonderful Shepherd. Yes, we have to humble ourselves and ask for forgiveness for our sins, and he is so gracious to not only forgive us, but to cleanse and deliver us from the bondage of these sins when we get down to business with Him.

    Blessings Terry,

    Scarlett
