Ravi Zacharias International Ministries issued an apology this week after a full independent report confirmed that the late Ravi Zacharias did engage in sexual assault and even rape. In an effort to be transparent, the ministry also released the full independent report to the public.
After the late Ravi Zacharias was preliminarily found was guilty of sexual misconduct, many wondered why Christian news organizations would report these findings since Zacharias is already dead. There are several issues at play in determining whether or not Christians should air the previously unreported sins of public ministry figures after their death, but the primary one is this – Ravi Zacharias sinned against numerous women. We, as followers of Jesus, owe it to them to hear their stories, acknowledge their pain, and advocate for them to receive the restitution they deserve.
