Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM) has revealed that the sexual allegations against their founder the late Ravi Zacharias are true. Earlier in the year, three women told Christianity Today that Zacharias would often frequent the spa he co-owned for treatments himself. During these treatments, Zacharias would expose himself, masturbate, and ask for explicit photos as well to have sex.
Miller & Martin PLLC, which the ministry hired to investigate allegations of misconduct that were made public months after Zacharias' death. After months of investigation Miller & Martin PLLC have reported back to RZIM. RZIM said, "Sadly, the interim investigation update indicates this assessment of Ravi's behavior to be true-that he did indeed engage in sexual misconduct.
This misconduct is deeply troubling and wholly inconsistent with the man Ravi Zacharias presented both publicly and privately to so many over more than four decades of public ministry. We are heartbroken at learning this but feel it necessary to be transparent and to inform our staff, donors, and supporters at this time, even while the investigation continues. We will speak more comprehensively to all concerned after the completion of the investigation."
The leadership of RZIM are heartbroken and they apologizes. "We are devastated for those who have suffered from Ravi's misconduct and for the pain that they are enduring. They have asked for confidentiality and anonymity, and both we and the investigators are committed to honoring their wishes."
The investigation is ongoing and is expected to conclude in January or February. RZIM will publicly release the Miller & Martin report as given to the Board as soon as possible after the investigation is complete.
