‘We Still Believe In Dad’s Innocence’—Ravi Zacharias’ Son Continues To Defend Father

Ravi Zacharias’ family members have had differing responses to the news that the apologist was a sexual predator. Davis has acknowledged her father’s abuse and apologized for her mistakes as a leader at RZIM. Zacharias’ daughter, Naomi Zacharias, stepped down as director of Wellspring International, the humanitarian arm of RZIM, in March 2021 and is now executive director of a charity called Third Ladder. She has not issued an apology to victims.

Zacharias’ wife, Margie, has denied that her husband committed sexual misconduct, saying, “He could never have kept a secret like they are alleging (alleging, I say, as there is not one whit of evidence to support what they are saying).” Nathan Zacharias denies Miller & Martin’s findings as well and on his blog, “Defending Ravi,” has said that Sarah Davis “is not speaking for the family. As has been clear, we do not share her take on this situation.”

In his most recent post, Nathan Zacharias claims his father was “denied due process” and states, “we have not found the evidence claimed in the report, nor any items/communications in other formats/belongings that would hint at any of this being true.” 

He goes on to list several reasons for his belief that his father is innocent and says that one reason why he has not been posting very much is that he has “not wanted this blog to become one of destruction.” Should he respond to every claim made against his father, said Nathan, “it would very easily turn from defending Dad into just mudslinging. And that would be no better than those who have chosen to destroy just to make a name/career for themselves.”

He concluded his post, “We remain at Dad’s defense.”
