Chris Rosebrough just posted this comment on his Facebook feed (thanks to Alf for sending it to me):
It appears to confirm the Pulpit & Pen exposé on Servus Christi (Joshua Chavez) nearly a fortnight ago that alleged Chavez had gotten married. Besides a few comments Chavez has made to followers alleging Pulpit & Pen’s reporter “fabricated” the story, he hasn’t properly responded, which is a bit peculiar since it surely isn’t difficult to officially confirm or deny the allegations. However, as commenters have realised, Chavez is in a predicament whether he confirms or denies:
And Wade posting on Chris’ Facebook page put the predicament in a nutshell:
Also tied up in the scandal is Jacob Prasch who was Chavez’s boss during the time of his allegedly faked marriage, and he has also been strangely silent on it. I’ve looked at the difficulties Prasch and Chavez have in responding to the Pulpit & Pen allegations in 3 posts published in the days leading up to the exposé hitting:
- 3 Days to Terminus of Servus Christi
- 2 Days to Terminus of Servus Christi
- 1 Day to Terminus of Servus Christi
One of the hypotheses I reasoned through in the 3 articles was the thought that it could have been possible a home church ‘blessing’ could have been deliberately/accidentally misconstrued by the ‘wife’ to conclude a wedding had taken place. The new photographic evidence discounts that one theory.
How much did Prasch know about the relationship, and if he knew about the separation between the two, why did he continue to boast of collaborating with Chavez in December 2019 and then actually collaborate in Spring 2020? The picture raises even more questions, and the silence from the Chavez and Prasch Cult camps is deafening.
A proliferation of elephants
The Chavez marriage/faked marriage issue, due to it not being resolved, only creates an elephant in the room situation for the Cult where in the midst of one apparent sin the Cult are naturally aware of other issues it causes. The elephant in the room in Chavez’s wedding is Prasch’s involvement and sustained “collaboration” with Chavez post “divorce” despite Prasch railing against others for engaging in divorce and building his ministry around such attacks. Surely this present situation causes that tension to arise where it’s not commentators who are causing cognitive dissonance in the Prasch disciples, but their own recognition of two obviously mutually exclusive views needing to be maintained in order for Prasch’s Cult to continue as is. It’s a rather difficult proposition to keep that tension, because it’s both inconsistent and requires deliberate blindness/stupidity to reduce the psychological pain of the dissonance.
However, rather sadly, the Prasch Cult are perfectly capable of dealing with it in a stupid way as their Cult’s echo chamber has been teeming with elephants for quite a while, with the elephant in the room of Prasch building his ministry around attacking anybody who has made a false prophecy when he himself uttered a false prophecy from the early 1980s which Chris Rosebrough exposed last week; or the elephant in the room that Prasch’s Cult is partly founded on him being half-Jewish, when the evidence is he is not and he committed identity fraud in trying to prove he was with clearly faked paperwork; or the elephant in the room of the disciples knowing what Galatians 5’s Fruit of the Spirit are yet all the while knowing Prasch has never exhibited any, and is thus rendered a non-Christian by his own 22+ years of consistently godless behaviour:
