The Two Deaths of Ravi Zacharias - What Now?

“I come to bury Caesar, not to praise him. The evil that men do lives after them; The good is oft interred with their bones; So let it be with Caesar. “

- Marc Antony (“Julius Caesar” by William Shakespeare)

I tossed and turned last night after talking with my son-in-law about the latest news concerning Ravi Zacharias. Zacharias died of cancer on May 19, 2020 after decades as a giant in Christian apologetics. The news read, “A preliminary report from the law firm hired by RZIM confirms reports from CT, World, and blogger Steve Baughman that international apologist Ravi Zacharias, who died earlier this year, sexually abused numerous women.” (Christianity Today)

I am grieved by the news. Grieving for the victims, his family and those he reached. Experiencing a second death notice of Zacharias. Now the death of his legacy and work. It is so devastating after years of leaning from someone and respecting their efforts. It is confusing as well.
