As many of you know, I’m a strong advocate of the charity Compassion International. I blog about it at least once a month and have sponsored children with them for many years.
That’s why it broke my heart to hear that some of Compassion’s leaders have been slowly but steadily grafting the charity into the Emergent church movement over the last several years.
I heard this first from my boss at the church who used to work at Compassion. She said it’s only getting worse. When I heard this tragic news, I went immediately to the internet to do research that confirmed what she’d told me.
I have not yet decided whether or not I’ll end my sponsorships, but I can no longer in clear conscience recommend the charity.
Please join me in praying for the leaders of Compassion International, that the Lord would open their eyes and change their hearts. And also for each of us, as more ‘wolves in sheep’s clothing’ pervert the Word of God in an attempt to confuse and trap us.
