 Financial Accountability Terminates Gospel for Asia’s Membership

Financial Accountability Terminates Gospel for Asia’s Membership

October 2, 2015. 22 Comments

by: Warren Throckmorton

Just today the Evangelical Council for Financial Accountability posted notice that they have terminated Gospel for Asia from ECFA membership due to failure to comply with multiple ECFA standards. GFA was a charter member of the ECFA, having joined in 1982

Pathos

Sister,

We encourage saints not to be re-posting articles by bloggers like Warren Throckmorton who in many ways are strongly speculating and trying to dig up dirt and accusations on those he dislikes or come into his radar. The Bible warns very much about slander, accusation, gossip and mis-information. There is also many stances on pro-homosexual or other sexual orientations on this blog, we do not endorse this or think its a christian viewpoint.

I have not seen this notice on the ECFA's website and if its true there could be other reasons behind it, etc.

 Re:

I do not know anything, but MinistryWatch stated last year that GFA lack of transparency is warranted given persecution in India. They are a strict watchdog group. They almost never say such things. Throckmorton makes hay in making controversy. Sometimes he is right. Sometimes he is just a sounding brass.

 Re:

I have read many of the testimonies and comments connected to the Throckmorton articles and there is something much more serious going and it's not just witch hunting or liberal antagonism. There is something called GFA Diaspora which will make you weep if you read the testimonies. The testimonies are not bitter nor are most from novices. I write with great heaviness of heart that Jesus Christ is blasphemed. The pain is so strong from what I have read, it is hard even to compose anything.

 Re:

Unfortunately there is much more to this than a single bloggers animosity towards
the leadership of GFA. The evidence for massive financial shenanigans and misappropriation of donations is getting difficult to ignore.


Here is the web page from the ECFA terminating GFA and the reasons given:

Terminated for failure to comply with Standard 2 Governance,
Standard 3 Financial Oversight,
Standard 4 Use of Resources,
Standard 6 Compensation-Setting and Related-Party Transactions,
Standard 7.1 Truthfulness in Communications,
Standard 7.2 Giver Expectations and Intent

 Re:

Thank you sister Carmine for sharing that, I did not find that page or information when I looked. Let us be in prayer for Gospel for Asia and those leaders involved.

Carmine is a common Italian name for a male that includes me.
I think you were thinking Carmen.
Concerning GFA. Praying is good and hopefully these people will repent and as a result bring forth the fruit of repentance.

 Re:

These verses came to mind when I read this thread:

Proverbs 6:16-19 King James Version (KJV)

16 These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him:

17 A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood,

18 An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief,

19 A false witness that speaketh lies,

--> and he that soweth discord among brethren.

 Re:

And here is he word of the Lord that came to me a few weeks ago

Proverbs 11New King James Version (NKJV)

Dishonest scales are an abomination to the Lord,
But a just weight is His delight.
2 When pride comes, then comes shame;
But with the humble is wisdom.
3 The integrity of the upright will guide them,
But the perversity of the unfaithful will destroy them.

Especially verse 3

Integrity denotes structural wholeness through and through. Void of any impure mixture that would contaminate and weaken and ultimately destroy .
Don't leave home without it.
