Last year, we sponsored the “Guess Who? Elijah List Challenge” game where we asked readers to guess which Elijah List “Prophet” was a plagiarist. The Culprit in the Pulpit turned out to be none other than Amanda Wells.
If you’d like to catch up on how Amanda Wells reacted to being called out you can read these articles here:
Around the same time last year, there were some Concerned Christians who took the time to privately reach out to each and every “prophet” on the Elijah List and let them know about Amanda Wells plagiarizing and pointing them to this website containing the evidence below:
Can you guess how many of the 126 Prophets on the Elijah list who were contacted privately took the time to respond to these Concerned Christians? Here’s a hint: 15 is too generous a number.
The final answer is 5. That’s right, only 5 people from the 126 Elijah List Prophets who were contacted last year responded. Most of these Elijah List Prophets are self proclaimed entrepreneurs, authors, business operators, etc. They of all people should understand the importance of customer service and promptly responding to concerns.
The 5 Elijah List Prophets who responded to these Concerned Christians are:
Amanda Wells, Lance Wallnau, Johnny Enlow, Lana Vawser, and Theresea Phillips. That’s it.
And can you guess which of the 5 people listed above was decent enough to take a genuine interest in the message of these Concerned Christians?
The correct answer is 1… ONE! You didn’t read that incorrectly, only one person took the time to hear out these Concerned Christians.
That’s quite alarming considering the fact that:
1. Plagiarism is illegal
2. There’s legitimate proof that Amanda Wells is a plagiarist
3. Amanda Wells has CONTINUED to plagiarize since last year DESPITE BEING CALLED OUT.
What does Scripture say about those who persist in sin?
19 Do not admit a charge against an elder except on the evidence of two or three witnesses. 20 As for those who persist in sin, rebuke them in the presence of all, so that the rest may stand in fear. (1 Timothy 5:19-20)
For those of you who think that we’re being harsh on all the Elijah List Prophets, we’d urge you to re-read this post that Amanda Wells wrote last year on 10/11/2016:
And this is coming from the woman who posts messages like this on her Facebook?
The word “hypocrite” comes to mind…
Anyway, back to the Cupcake post. Wells wrote a bit too much information.
“I posted something back in April and didn’t put the guys name on it……. To then send over 40 messages, texts and emails……. what is that? Hey I deleted it, stuff happens I called a cupcake a muffin.”
Without realizing it, she admitted that she knew that over 40 messages had been sent to other Elijah List Members. All of them knew about Amanda Wells plagiarizing and none of them confronted her or rebuked her.
It’s both distressing and disturbing that 126 people who claim to be hearing from God haven’t called out Amanda Wells for engaging in illegal activity. Instead, Amanda Wells has continued to preach and be endorsed by Katherine Ruonala since last year. One can’t help but wonder why this plagiarist is still among the the ranks in the Elijah List and continues to preach behind pulpits.
Are the Elijah List Prophets refusing to call out Amanda Wells’ plagiarism because they’re engaging in similar illegal behaviors?
If this were a different case where Christians were calling out a sexual predator or pedophile among their ranks, would the Elijah List prophets still refuse to call out that fellow prophet’s sins and properly deal with the matter? Would they still ignore their “critics” and allow that sexual predator to continue preaching behind pulpits?
It would be helpful if the Elijah List Prophets answered these questions. Their silence can easily be seen as them condoning the illegal practices of Amanda Wells.
Below are the screenshots that these Concerned Christians took after they messaged all the Elijah List Prophets they could get ahold of.
