The Mike Bickle Cover-Up Is Well Under Way

By       (Page 2 of 4 pages)   1 comment

Then the charismatic industrial complex went to work. Soon Misty Edwards puts out a statement saying IF she was one of the listed victims it was untrue. Then someone randomly makes a Facebook post claiming she was listed as a victim, but she swears she was not. Steven Strang at Charisma seizes on this and starts writing and making videos casting shade on the underlying accusations because now several of the alleged victims have recanted. Dr. Brown starts to mention this as well in his "let's wait and see and say nothing" defense. The groundwork has now been laid to provide some cover and the IHOP leadership team changes course entirely with the above linked statement. Let's review portions of this "major update:"

Ravi spiritually extorted his victims by claiming they could be consigning millions of people to hell by depriving them of his ministry if they dared to tell on him. I might add they often do not come forward because of actions such as these. Why in the world would the complaint group help leadership when it is quite apparent, they have no intention of dealing honorably and fairly?

"The second, and only detailed, allegation is from 26 years ago, before IHOPKC was founded.

The allegations include physical contacts between Mr. Bickle and an adult woman; it is also
