Pastors Andy and Ali Timms of Destiny Life Church in Bournemouth, England, (Enabler #1) invited Amanda Wells to speak at their Church this upcoming March 2017. They were contacted privately about Amanda Wells’ plagiarism on January 10th of 2017 and has yet to respond.
This speaking engagement recently disappeared from the destinylifechurch.org website:
Veronica Miles (Enabler #4) invited Plagiarist Amanda Wells to speak at the Majestic Women’s Retreat at Blue Lagoon Beach in Tasmania, Australia. She was contacted privately about Amanda Wells’ plagiarism on January 21st, 2017 and has yet to respond.
Amanda Wells’ name has also recently vanished from the Majestic Women’s Retreat speaker list:
Both Timms and Miles were contacted by us in accordance with Scripture:
“If your brother sins against you, go and tell him his fault, between you and him alone. If he listens to you, you have gained your brother. But if he does not listen, take one or two others along with you, that every charge may be established by the evidence of two or three witnesses. If he refuses to listen to them, tell it to the church. And if he refuses to listen even to the church, let him be to you as a Gentile and a tax collector. Truly, I say to you, whatever you bind on earth shall be bound in heaven, and whatever you loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven. Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth about anything they ask, it will be done for them by my Father in heaven. For where two or three are gathered in my name, there am I among them.” (Matthew 18:15-20)
Neither had the courtesy to respond to our concerns regarding them putting their congregants and conference attenders at risk. This lack of courtesy on behalf on Christians is all too frequent and is an unacceptable problem in the Church today. Common courtesy would dictate that our message to them merited at least a courteous response. However, upon receiving no acknowledgement of receiving our alert, we took the step then of notifying them publicly about our concerns. (Again, in accordance with Scripture.) And still neither responded.
Both parties appeared to ignore the warnings and continue with their intention to have Wells speak. We have continued with our warnings regarding Amanda Wells and her scam ministry and it appears, finally, that she is no longer appearing on their speakers list in either case.
So what’s changed? Is this a case as so often before of pastors and conference organizers going underground with their engagements in order to clandestinely cover up for and protect their colleagues? We hope not. If Wells has actually been removed from both of these events then we can only ponder as to why neither of these organizers had the integrity to publicly announce that they have disengaged Wells as they so publicly had announced that they had engaged her? What is the secret? What is the problem? What is going on? Does the Body of Christ not have a right to know?
Jesus clearly exhorts us to be courageous in our faith and to warn the sheep of the wolves, not to protect them. If the intentions of those who engaged Wells to speak at their events was without guile, and they have heeded the warnings that have been so clearly heralded, then what is their shame in being open about their decisions and reasons for decisions? We ask these questions because too many times, false teachers have been protected by their colleagues in the past all over the world. Let’s be open and forthright in order to eliminate the possibility of any illegitimate dealings.
Unless and until ANY ENABLERS are publicly prepared to give an assurance that they will NOT HAVE Wells or any other proven false prophet and law breaker back to speak at their conferences and in their churches, they will remain on the Enabler’s List.
