You know it is amazing to me that Christians will so easily turn on each other. I do not know all the details of this case, but it's just amazing to me that you all are so ready to condemn her. Have any of you prayed for her? Have you prayed that if she was in the wrong, then God would in his own time and ways correct her like the loving Father that He is? I don't want to argue about whether she was directly involved or not, but I do want to make a point about doing what the Bible says. We're supposed to go to those who have fallen into sin with a spirit of meekness (Galatians 6:1). It seems everyone is ready to go with a spirit of vengeful vindictiveness. Is that really what the God of the Bible says? Again I'm not here to say whether I think she was a part of this abuse or not, and I won't negate the fact that innocent children were hurt. However, if you call yourself a Christian, you shouldn't be badmouthing a fellow Christian and essentially kicking them while they are down. Pray for Lori. I don't know that we will ever know the truth about what happened, but what if, for the sake of argument, she really was innocent of everything? She would be hurting because everyone had their preconcieved ideas about how awful they thought she was. I have one final comment. Those who say that Lori's books do not clearly present the plan of salvation may want to reread them. Having read Lori's books for years, I can look at my own small collection of Lori Wick and tell you a story from each book where a character described how they came to a saving faith in Jesus Christ. In most of the books, there seems to be more than one story. I don't see how anyone could read her books and not understand clearly how to come to a saving faith in Jesus Christ.

Oh, Chris, if you only knew. They cooked themselves- they revealed everything they knew and had done in the initial investigation. Lori was not an innocent bystander- trust me on this. Lori was one of the people who gave advice on how to spank children. I know from childhood that Lori was capable of terrorizing people- she can be a very strong willed, mean person, and it was widely known that she wore the pants in the family. Do I hate Lori? Of course not. I just think we need to keep things in perspective and not gloss over her reputation simply because she is everyone's beloved, favorite author.

Lori Wick has written great christian books, Why do some of you accuse her of
child abuse or aiding others in child abuse with no proof??
Choose to read her books or not.
God wants us to love people..........
God bless all of you

It's been quite some time since we've seen any new material from Lori. Anyone else think her so-called pastor may have something to do with this?
Jan, it's been ten years since I've read one of Lori's books. It became clear to me that she was more interested in puffing up the egos of her church elders than sharing the love of Christ and the salvation He offers. Sad, very sad.

Lori Wick's books DO NOT give a clear message of salvation and that is what we are told to do by Christ. Lori's terms "run to the cross" do not tell the reader how to become a Christian. This is very sad and deceives people. Romans 10:9-10 "If you confess with your mouth, "Jesus is Lord," and believe in your heart that God raised him from the dead, you will be saved. With the heart one believes, resulting in righteousness, and with the mouth one confesses, resulting in salvation. I pray that so called "Christian writers" would make the most important message of salvation clear. See Ephesians 2:8-9, John 3:16, Luke 13:3, John 14:6
I pray that if Lori is not saved, that she accept Jesus as her savior. He will make sure her books give His message if she will surrender to Him.

What a nice, forgiving group Lori's church is...not. Just found out that John (Phil Caminiti's brother, and one of the eight being charged) is being disciplined by Phil because he is in trouble with the law- FOR FOLLOWING PHIL'S TEACHING!!! (John plead guilty on three of eight counts, asked for 3 yrs probation, and got a yr in prison with multi 8 yr probation terms and extended supervision...)

Heh; All you people saying she's just a innocent person in this. They beat the children (1 1/2 month olds too!!!) We should beat them, exept substitute a lead pipe for a wooden dowel. :)

To the people who say "not everything you read on the Internet is true" about Lori Wick, when what you are looking at on the Internet are newspaper articles from multiple newspapers and PDFs of arrest reports, then I would err on the side of believing them over people who just think they know her through reading her books.

I am a fan of Lori Wick, hers is the best Christian books on the market. I don't know what is going on with her church but much of what is on the web is false. I will continue to read her books because not only are they enjoyable but have moral christian values in them.

Tina, I do not see anything on Harvest House's site, so it might not have been released.
