Pastors Steve and Dani Bosman of Faithlife Church in Toowoomba, Queensland, are enablers of plagiarist Amanda Wells.
“Pastors” Steve and Dani Bosman were alerted to Wells’ plagiarism IN HER BOOKS and have invited her to preach in their church on more than one occasion. A group of Concerned Christians messaged them on February 5th, 2017 with the following message WHICH THEY SAW AND TO WHICH THEY FAILED TO RESPOND:
Dear Faithlife Church,
For some time a group of concerned Christians have been following the movements of Amanda Wells, a woman from Australia who claims she has been “ordained” in at least three churches and that she is a “prophet” of God.
Amanda first came to our watch list when we received information that certain material she was presenting as her own work had been plagiarised from other sites on the Internet. Further intense investigation found a plethora of such plagiarized material, and we began to view this matter more seriously.
In 2015 the discernment website Churchwatch Central attempted to draw attention to Wells’ illegal activity by promoting a game called “Culprit in the Pulpit” which encouraged Christians to be more discerning when accepting the claims of people who claim to be prophets. Every person who claimed to be a prophet and who were a part of the Elijah List with Wells was personally notified and led to examples of plagiarism. Some of the people from whom she had plagiarised even appeared on that list of her own colleagues! The warning was ignored. Wells herself chose to deal with the issue by using social media to insult and abuse those who began to ask questions.
Here is a timeline of events that has been documented:
In 2016 at the time of the Australian Prophetic Summit, every member of the Elijah list was once again notified that despite her being exposed as a plagiarist the previous year, Wells had continued to steal other’s material and sell it and present it as her own during the intervening 12 month period.
By this time, Wells had attracted attention from other areas including a Christian Radio station:
Despite the fact that the Elijah List did not have the courtesy to respond to warnings, it was noted that all Wells’ “prophecies” were suddenly removed from the site. Likewise, the Senior Pastor of her church, (Glory City Church), one Katherine Ruonala, took action, and according to Wells’ own website (wellsministries.com) Wells had removed herself from her activities in the Glory City Church for a certain time in order to receive counseling regarding the matter.
Despite assurances from those enabling Wells, further material began to emerge, and in recent weeks we have become aware that books which Wells claimed to have written also contained plagiarized material.
Currently we are investigating her other books and looking for more plagiarised material. We have every reason to believe that there are yet more examples to be discovered, and we will continue our attempts to expose this theft of intellectual property. If she has sold her books at your church, or if you have purchased her books, then you have enabled a plagiarist. We are taking this opportunity to request that you, as Amanda Wells’ friend, call her out on her sins as she’s engaging in illegal activities and will reflect poorly on your church and all who are affiliated with her.
Since we have video evidence of Wells selling these products from pulpits and platforms at church meetings in countries spread across the world, we will continue to advise all parties involved to cease and desist immediately in any further promotion of these products.
We are notifying all the publishing companies that have published her books and all the companies that sell her books, as well as all the churches that promote her because when she goes to a church to speak she sells her plagiarized materials there.
We are also notifying you because you have helped sell Wells’ plagiarized books from your pulpit, and that’s illegal.
If you have questions or concerns of the content of this letter please message us here on Facebook or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
FaithLife Church did indeed help plagiarist Amanda Wells sell her books containing stolen materials from their pulpit.
“And Jesus entered the temple and drove out all who sold and bought in the temple, and he overturned the tables of the money-changers and the seats of those who sold pigeons. He said to them, ‘It is written, ‘My house shall be called a house of prayer,’ but you make it a den of robbers.'” (Matthew 21:12-13)
In Faithlife Church’s youtube video, “Amanda Wells – The Dynasty of God,” you can watch Amanda Wells promote her plagiarized products “There Shall Be No Poor Among You,” and “Package Your Brilliance Factor.”
We are currently waiting to hear back from FaithLife Church.
Within this “Amanda Wells – The Dynasty of God” video, Amanda Wells proclaims a prophecy over Pastors Steve and Dani Bosman.
“.. and there is a door that you are going to be able to break through that is more wealth than you could ever imagine…… and in this small people ………. I tell you……… even within 2016 a million dollars is going to come through your hands….. an….. and it’s……li…. ph …….. it’s going to come through and you are going to be amazed at the amount of giving that’s going to happen by 2016. For a small amount of people like this, twelve thousand is awesome but it is gonna grow and grow and grow and you know the power of it because you know that as………. they’re giving……..an… and it’s amazing the word “tithe” written across Hebrew words are always that way [indicates with hand] but they read backwards as well.”
It’s now 2017. “Within the year 2016″ did a million dollars go through your hands Pastor Steve? By 2016, did the tithe “grow and grow and grow” so that you and Dani were amazed at the power of it?
“If what a prophet proclaims in the name of the Lord does not take place or come true, that is a message the Lord has not spoken. That prophet has spoken presumptuously, so do not be alarmed.” (Deuteronomy 18:22)
“For what have I to do with judging outsiders? Is it not those inside the church whom you are to judge? God judges those outside. “Purge the evil person from among you.” (1 Corinthians 5:12-13)
