Same Old Pattern
As he has done before in the past, Jim Wright has changed his site and organization names to make it harder for unsuspecting people to discover the past that discredits and embarrasses him.
It’s March 2019, and I want to give a brief report on what’s taken place over the last four years to the present. (My last update to the site was in 2015.)
Keith Smith has Reportedly Died
Keith Smith – the man who supported Jim Wright in his smear campaigns against others and was used by Jim Wright with no evidence of due diligence or personal integrity – suddenly died a year ago in February of 2018 according to online reports. Keith Smith confessed publicly, after repeatedly being confronted about and lying repeatedly, that he was an academic fraud. He claimed multiple PhDs and was unable to prove he had anything more than a partial undergraduate record. He had a long and sordid history as a religious con-artist and grifter.
Nothing has Changed with Jim Wright
Wright has lost all credibility in the Christian world, except for a small number of people, most of whom who don’t know his character or past history of abuse, bullying, personal issues, and intentionally spreading smears against leaders he doesn’t like.
To hide his intentions, Wright will sometimes report on genuine cases of abuse alongside of his smear campaigns against people whom he’s intentionally lying about.
Wright’s initial smear campaign against a group of leaders – some of who were once (not presently) associated with the “house church movement” – began in 2012. All of those attacks have been fully debunked over six years ago.
Despite this, Wright is still attacking these same people, hoping that some who are ignorant of the disturbing issues in his own personal life and dishonest history will give him a listening ear.
It is astounding that a man of Wright’s scandalous personal history of divorce and estranged children would have the audacity to be casting stones at other people.
Be Warned, Jim Wright has a Long, Ugly History
I’m writing today to issue this update to warn you that:
(1) Jim Wright has yet to repent of his lies and deliberate defamation of leaders he doesn’t know or has ever met but who he’s taken personal offense with. (See my response to his absurd lies about me after exposing him and his history of abuse.)
(2) If you are Facebook friends with Jim Wright, you should unfriend him immediately because friending him only empowers him to continue in his sin and you are actually participating in that sin through your support. This is why the Bible teaches that no follower of Jesus should associate with people who commit the sin of slander and do not repent. Wright currently uses a Facebook Page that he renamed after his Crossroad Junction Page was closed by Facebook for multiple community guideline violations. He’s repeated past patterns and created the illusion of a vast following despite very little actual interaction.
But now I am writing to you that you must not associate with anyone who claims to be a brother or sister but is sexually immoral or greedy, an idolater or slanderer, a drunkard or swindler. Do not even eat with such people. 1 Corinthians 5:11
Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them. Titus 3:10
My hope is that before he dies, Wright will come clean, repent, and apologize to those he has abused over the years through slander, bullying, and harassment.
