No. 0     Original Topic:  Beware Jim Wright of Cross Road Junction, Nathan's Voice

I just wanted to pass on a warning about a brother who is attacking others with slanderous allegations. Jim Wright who blogs on Cross Road Junction (article in reference: http://crossroadjunction.com/2013/05/15/jon-zens-and-frank-viola/, Nathan's Voice (article in reference: http://nathansvoice.org/2013/04/22/frank-viola/)and Fulcrum Ministries.

Jim Wright claims to be a victim advocate, yet he has not revealed any victims in the latest allegations against author and teacher Frank Viola. What Jim references in his allegations are writings from those who were offended by what took place in 2000-2002 and had been dealt with by Frank and others then. Jim uses these old, out of date reports to slander Frank, who Jim has in the recent past, taken issue with over matters of doctrinal disagreements.

Jon Zens has posted on his site the truth regarding Jim Wright. http://searchingtogether.org/JimWright.pdf

I am posting this here, as Jim claims his blog is getting a wider readership, and I am concerned for those who might be drawn into his way of slander and web of deceit.

Thanks for sharing. I know of someone who considers himself friends of Jim Wright. I haven't had anything to do with him or his teachings but know he holds himself out as a minister.

Like an unlicensed doctor holds himself out as a MD of medicine, based on what little I know of him. In essence, what is the equivalent of a quack doctor to a minister? I guess the word "charlatan" might be appropriate.

Jim Wright is a retired lawyer, who worked in environmental law. That is a fact. His teaching is very mainline. He has chosen the house church format for meetings. The problem I have seen with him is that he viciously attacks anyone who questions him and his ideas, or those whose doctrine differs from his.

I would ask all to consider passing along the warning letter about Jim and pray that the Lord turns his heart. I think he has alot to offer the church, if he will seek to work as a restorer and reconciler, rather than an accuser and prosecutor.

Hi Kent,

This is Bart Breen and we've connected in other forums before. I'm grateful for your warning here.

Could I ask you a favor however? Would you please not link to J. Wright's blog-sites? I know you intend it as a warning. What it does however is it ups his profile in Search Engines and it end up sending people who may not have heard his slander before there to see it for the first time.

No pressure at all. You do what you think is right. I just wanted you to be aware that it has an unintended benefit for him that you might not be intending.

Blessings!

Bart Breen

Hi Bart, and thanks for the reply. My concern is that people read both sides of the story. Just as you and I have, and have clearly seen the insidious methods that Jim Wright uses. I can't expect my friends here to make an honest judgment with only one side of the story. And I wanted all here to be clear who and what blog I was addressing.

I am not at all interested in how many hits Jim's sites get. He will fall on his own words (sword).

Yet I still pray for his repentance....
