Defending Mothers, Children, and the Church Through Legal Means

Why were Julie Anne Smith, Meaghan Varela, and three others taken to court? Over five years ago a man was fired from his position at Beaverton Grace Bible Church after repeatedly expressing his divisive accusation that the pastor “doesn’t preach Christ, doesn’t preach the Gospel, and doesn’t preach the whole counsel of God,” and then taking the church splitting action of seeking to gather two deacons and a layman to stand with him in his theological angst against the pastor and elders. Since that time (for the last 5 yrs.) the former employee’s vindictive friends have been engaged in a public, church to church, and World Wide Web assault of criminal slander; showing their willingness to harm children, to harm wives, to harm the church, and to harm the testimony of Christ’s Gospel. Through vicious false criminal reports they have repeatedly used the police and the Department of Human Services (Child Protection) as weapons of their malice. They continue to make their accusations publicly, church to church, and on the World Wide Web to this day.

It was and is our firm conviction that this cannot continue. The ministry of the local church and the Gospel cannot continue to be hindered by criminal accusations. Families cannot continue to be threatened by malicious criminal allegations. Families cannot continue to be divided and tortured by criminal allegations and other slanders. Taking legal action should never be a knee jerk reaction, or something pursued out of bitterness or greed. However, there are unusual and terrible situations where an individual or group of individuals are behaving in such a harmful manner that must be addressed legally in order to stop, or attempt to stop, the destructive behavior and protect families.

Proverbs 25:8 says, “Do not go hastily to court.” BGBC did not go hastily to court. After three and a half years of suffering a great many injuries to our church and families we attempted to use lawful means to right the ministry of the Gospel at BGBC and to protect our families from ongoing criminal accusations. We stand by our attempt to protect our families without apology. We stand in good company with Matthew Henry, Albert Barnes, and John Calvin.

If you disagree with Matthew Henry, Albert Barnes, and John Calvin (see below) regarding the unfortunate, rare, but very real necessity of lawsuits to stop evil doers, please disagree humbly until you have experienced your wife, your children, and the families of your congregation suffering year after year under relentless blows of criminal slander in your community and on the World Wide Web. If you disagree, you really should disagree very mildly in light of the fact that these are three (Henry, Barnes, Calvin) of the Bible interpreters that virtually every sound Christian, Bible student, Bible teacher, expository preacher, and pastor look to and quote on regular occasion to aid them in understanding and communicating the truth of God’s Word. Please consider the following quotes.

*MATTHEW HENRY (CHARLES SPURGEON’S FAVORITE BIBLE COMMENTATOR) COMMENTS ON 1 COR. 6
“Here is at least an intimation that they went to law for trivial matters, things of little value; for the apostle blames them that they did not suffer wrong rather than go to law (v. 7), which must be understood of matters not very important. In matters of great damage to ourselves or families, we may use lawful means to right ourselves. We are not bound to sit down and suffer the injury tamely, without stirring for our own relief; but, in matters of small consequence, it is better to put up with the wrong. Christians should be of a forgiving temper. And it is more for their ease and honor to suffer small injuries and inconveniences than seem to be contentious.”

ALBERT BARNES COMMENTS ON 1 COR. 6
“Where a Christian is INJURED in his person, character, or property, he has a right to seek redress. Courts, are instituted for the protection and defense of the innocent and the peaceable against the fraudulent, the wicked, and the violent. And a Christian owes it to his country, to his family, and to himself, that the man who has injured him should receive the proper punishment. The peace and welfare of the community demand it. If a man murders my wife or child, I owe it to the laws and to my country, to justice and to God, to endeavor to have the law enforced. So if a man robs my property, or injures my character, I may owe it to OTHERS as well as to myself that the law in such a case should be executed, and the rights of others also be secured.”

JOHN CALVIN COMMENTS ON 1 COR. 6
“As for those who strictly condemn all legal contentions, let them realize that they therewith repudiate God’s holy ordinance, and one of the class of gifts that can be clean to the clean [Titus 1:15], unless, perchance, they wish to accuse Paul of a shameful act, since he both repelled the slanders of his accusers, exposing at the same time their craft and malice [Acts 24:12 ff.], and in court claimed for himself the privilege of Roman citizenship [Acts 16:37; 22:1, 25], and, when there was need, appealed from the unjust judge to the judgment seat of Caesar [Acts 25:10-11]… Such men should therefore understand that lawsuits are permissible if rightly used. There is right use, both for the plaintiff in suing and for the accused in defending himself, if the defendant presents himself on the appointed day and with such exception, as he can, defends himself without bitterness, but only with this intent, to defend what is his by right, and if on the other hand, the plaintiff, undeservedly oppressed either in his person or in his property, puts himself in the care of the magistrate, makes his complaint, and seeks what is fair and good.”

Accuser of the Brethren -Julie Anne Smith’s Slander of Biblical Men & Ministries

This article catalogues a representative portion of Julie Anne Smith’s ongoing slander of Biblical men and ministries across America. The list includes Voddie Baucham, Mark Dever, Todd Friel, Wayne Grudem, Ken Ham, Phil Johnson, John MacArthur, C.J. Mahaney, Tony Miano, Al Mohler, John Piper, R.C. Sproul, and R.C. Sproul Jr. All these men share a passion for the Gospel of Jesus Christ and the Word of God, and at varying levels all these men have been targeted by Julie Anne Smith’s slander.

In 2009, Julie Anne was placed under church discipline for her criminal slander against the families, leadership, and Pastor of Beaverton Grace Bible Church. What began as an attack on the families and leadership of the local church she attended, has now grown into a universal assault of Biblical men and ministries everywhere. Julie Anne has an ever increasing list of targets and a never ending supply of slanderous accusations with which to attack them. To say that Julie Anne Smith is “unrepentant” would be a massive understatement. May the Lord grant her repentance. May Christ’s Church be protected. May the ministry of the Gospel be unfettered.

“These six things the Lord hates, Yes, seven are an abomination to Him: A proud look, A lying tongue, Hands that shed innocent blood, A heart that devises wicked plans, Feet that are swift in running to evil, A false witness who speaks lies, And one who sows discord among brethren.” (Prov. 6:16-19)

“A lying tongue hates those who are crushed by it.” (Prov 26:28)

NOTE: The images you see in the following article came from Julie Anne’s blog and twitter.

*Julie Anne Smith attacks the Gospel proclaiming movie Courageous, accusing the African American father of “emotional incest” for giving a promise/purity ring to his daughter. Taking something sweet and Biblical and turning it into an accusation of “incest” is a great example of Julie Anne’s slander methodology.

Seeking to destroy pastors, evangelists, churches, ministries, and families with slander is clearly Julie Anne Smith’s sinful fun. Julie Anne remains under church discipline. May God grant her repentance. May God protect and encourage those who are harmed by her lies.

Please don’t allow her slander to affect your opinion of any of the men or ministries she assaults.

Julie Anne Smith’s Destructive Cyberbully/Slander-blogging Movement

Julie Anne Smith is at the helm of a new, incredibly destructive, well-coordinated, cyberbully/slander-blogging movement. With every passing week these slander-bloggers (spiritualsoundingboard.com, thewartburgwatch.com, fbcjaxwatchdog.blogspot.com, calvarychapelabuse.com, etc.) are more organized and united in their reviling assault of Biblical churches and pastors everywhere. They have wielded their “abuse” slander against many of the well-known pastoral luminaries of the conservative Christian world. There is no ministry or pastor that they will not take on with their “abuse” slander. It clearly is a growing movement. Growing larger, bolder, and more brazen with each success. They are actively raising up, training up, and coming alongside of rebel slanderers against Christ’s Church everywhere. Julie Anne Smith has emerged as a chief prophetess, voice, and visionary of the cyberbullying group. She is charting out a grassroots plan to unleash destruction everywhere.

Cyber-Lynch Mob “Raging” out of Control

After encouraging one another to work up a “rage” and then to act on it, Julie Anne Smith (of spiritualsoundingboard.com) and her slander blitz crew  are tweeting out sexually explicit accusations to the world at #whowouldjesussue. True to character, Julie Anne’s tweets are far more sexually charged, disgusting, and defamatory than all the rest put together. While most of the accusations at #whowouldjesussue fall short of Julie Anne’s shock-jock perversion, they still include bold defamatory accusations of “child abuse.”

A question must be asked of all those who got their “rage” up and carried torches and pitchforks in Julie Anne’s lynch mob. When you don’t actually know if a man is guilty of anything how can you justify the global destruction that you are bringing upon him, his wife, his church, Chuck Smith, Calvary Chapel, etc.? Yesterday you put a “child abuse” noose around a man’s neck and hung him publicly on the internet. You hung his wife from a branch alongside of him. You hung Chuck Smith just down the way in Costa Mesa, from an old oak tree planted in 1965 that has borne much good Gospel fruit. You’ve got the rest of Calvary Chapel’s pastors all noosed up and ready to hang next.

Way Too Much Fun

Destroying lives with slander-blogging is Julie Anne Smith’s fun hobby. Sometimes it even breaks out into a full on slander party, complete with comedians. Juvenile, lewd, parody twitter accounts are the life of the party, and so much fun for Julie Anne that she confesses that she nearly “peed” her pants laughing. When were Julie Anne and her activist “abuse” advocates having all this fun? While heartbrokenly trying to save the world from pastors who “abuse,” OR was she just trying to ruin a man, a woman, a church, and an entire fellowship of churches with her cyber-lynching slander campaign and having way too much fun doing it? Many of her tweets are too defamatory and perverse to even print. Apparently, while in the midst of tweeting out sexually explicit accusations of abuse, Julie Anne was having a regular party and laughing so hard that she nearly “peed” herself.

Think about it. You don’t see genuine advocate groups engaging in juvenile, lewd, profane, comedic, banter. You don’t see MADD (Mothers Against Drunk Driving) doing that. You don’t see Pro-life advocates doing that. You don’t see real child abuse advocates doing that. A family being killed by a drunk driver is a very serious matter. Unborn children being murdered because they are inconvenient is a very serious matter. Children being abused physically or sexually is a very serious matter. Julie Anne and party are not “abuse” advocates. They are slander-bloggers throwing an extended internet slander party, and having way too much fun doing it.

God’s Word on Gossip/Slander -by John

Who am I? I have no respect for justice. I maim without killing. I break hearts and ruin lives. I am cruel and malicious and gather strength with age. The more I am quoted, the more I am believed. My victims are helpless. They cannot protect themselves against me because I control all criticism about me. My friends all agree with me or they are not my friends. Once I tarnish a reputation, it is never the same. My goal is to break up families and ruin marriages. I aim to destroy careers and cause heartache and sleepless nights. I wreck churches and separate Christians. I spawn suspicion and generate grief. It is a successful day if I can make innocent people cry. The Word of God calls me gossip/slander. My name is Juliann/Meaghan.

It is quite clear that God has strong opinions about gossip/slander. To determine God’s feelings on the subject one needs to look no further than his earliest covenant with the Israelites when God told Moses, “Do not go about spreading gossip/slander among your people. Do not do anything that endangers your neighbor’s life. I am the LORD.” (Lev. 19:16)

“I am the Lord” is God’s signature that declares his supreme authority in a particular matter. Since it is attached to this commandment, it shows how seriously God views slander.

GOSSIP/SLANDER—A BIBLICAL VIEW.

PSALMS 101:5a, “Whoever secretly slanders his neighbor, him (or her) I will destroy.”

“One who secretly slanders a neighbor” is guilty of gossip. God is greatly displeased with those who talk behind people’s backs. Gossipers will be destroyed. Juliann/Meaghan—you might want to repent before you fall into the hands of the Living God.

HOW DOES GOD FEEL ABOUT GOSSIP/SLANDER?

PROVERBS 6:16-19, “There are six things the Lord hates, seven that are detestable to him: haughty eyes, a lying tongue, hands that shed innocent blood, a heart that devises wicked schemes, feet that are quick to rush into evil, a false witness who pours out lies and a person who stirs up conflict in the community.”

God hates a lying tongue and one who sows discord among brethren. Gossipers/Slanders are an abomination in the sight of God. Juliann/Meaghan—this should cause you sleepless nights but if you repent and “turn to the Lord, our God; he is merciful and quick to forgive.” (Isaiah 55:7)

WHY DO PEOPLE GOSSIP?

I CORINTHIANS 3:3. “for you are still fleshly. For since there is jealousy and strife among you, are you not fleshly, and are you not walking like mere men?”

People gossip because they are not spiritually minded, but they are carnally minded. The carnally minded person insists on their own way, the spiritually minded person builds up the other person. Juliann/Meaghan—you are never too far away to be out of the reach of God. Remember, if you repent “The LORD is slow to anger, abounding in love and forgiving sin and rebellion.” (Numbers 14:18)

I think that gossip is very much an expression of pride and human arrogance, which is why people feel so justified when they engage in it.

PROVERBS 10:18, “He who conceals hatred has lying lips, and he who spreads slander is a fool.”

People bear false witness because they HATE the one they speak about. People spread gossip because they are fools.

I TIMOTHY 5:13, “At the same time they also learn to be idle, as they go around from house to house; and not merely idle, but also gossips and busybodies, talking about things not proper to mention.”

People gossip because they are idle and want to feel that they have some influence. Normally if you look at a person who is gossiping, they are not doing any spiritual work. Those who routinely gossip, usually speak against those who are doing spiritual work.

Juliann/Meaghan—What is repentance? John MacArthur correctly said: “Repentance is no more a meritorious work than its counterpart, faith. It is an inward response. Genuine repentance pleads with the Lord to forgive and deliver from the burden of sin and the fear of judgment and hell. It is the attitude of the publican who, fearful of even looking toward heaven, smote his breast and cried, “God, be merciful to me, the sinner!” (Luke 18:13). Repentance is not merely behavior reform. But because true repentance involves a change of heart and purpose, it inevitably results in a change of behavior.”

“Like faith, repentance has intellectual, emotional, and volitional ramifications. Berkhof describes the intellectual element of repentance as “a change of view, a recognition of sin as involving personal guilt, defilement, and helplessness.” The emotional element is “a change of feeling, manifesting itself in sorrow for sin committed against a holy God.” The volitional element is “a change of purpose, an inward turning away from sin, and a disposition to seek pardon and cleansing.” (Berkhof, Systematic Theology, 486) Each of those three elements is deficient apart from the others. Repentance is a response of the total person.”

Julie Anne Smith Boasts of “Corrupting” Public High School & Mormon Youth

Have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather expose them.-Ephes. 5:11

Slander-blogging is Julie Anne Smith’s full-time hobby. She maligns Biblical men and ministries coast to coast, all across America. As the old adage goes, “even broken clocks are right twice a day.” Sometimes, Julie Anne finds true stories of legitimate abuse of power, position, or perversion. Most of the time, she is busy fabricating stories of abuse against Biblical pastors, ministry leaders, churches, and ministries. 

This “true story” comes from the comment section of Julie Anne Smith’s blog post titled, Indoctrinating Your Children with Doctrine. While Julie Anne stands firmly against you indoctrinating your children with Biblical doctrine as you see fit, she publicly boasts that she finds it “Hilarious!!!” to indoctrinate other people’s children with perversion, without their knowledge or permission while playing the role of an “adult” chaperone for a high school choir from Richland, Washington. Worse yet, according to Julie Anne, “corrupting” the Mormon children that were entrusted to her supervision was even more ”Hilarious!!!” The Mormon children are the punch line of her filthy joke.

Julie Anne Smith’s Desperate Attempt to Defend her Perverse Behavior

Julie Anne Smith is a master liar, but nobody except her fellow reviling perverts are going to buy her justification of her perverse behavior and her online boasting of “corrupting” the kids, especially the Mormon kids of Richland, Washington’s High School Choir. Read her defense of her unconscionable behavior in bold print below, and then go back to Julie Anne Smith Boasts of “Corrupting” Public High School & Mormon Youth and reread Julie Anne and her friends’ actual twisted, juvenile banter.

HER DEFENSE: “I described my experience of taking Voodoo doughnut orders from the students. Voodoo Doughnut is a “famous” doughnut shop in Portland.  I’m not a fan of the place.  I don’t get excited about ordering “cocks and balls” doughnuts, nor do I get freaked out.  It’s a weird doughnut shop.   I think that trip was only my 2nd time, maybe 3rd there.  I’m not a doughnut person, but the weird Portland environment keeps the place hopping with locals and tourists.”

Leave Our Children Alone! -Matt & Dawn Confront Their Accuser

FROM: Matt & Dawn

TO: Julie Anne Smith, AKA -Accuser

Julie Anne,

Here we are AGAIN being victimized by you and your cronies!! And for what? So YOU can settle a score. Shame on you!! Why are you “us[ing] a family who has suffered much for your defense?” It is you and Meaghan Varela that have used and abused our family in your initial offense and your ongoing defense.

You say out of one side of your mouth, “I haven’t watched all the videos” then out the other side, (without taking a breath) “, but saw 2 videos of the parents of the abuser/victims.” Which is it? Did you watch them or not? And IF you didn’t watch them, WHY didn’t you? Who in their “Right mind” would not have spent five minutes to see the truth with their own eyes?

Instead, you admit to CHOOSING to receive gossip instead of going to the source that was a fraction-of-a- click away. Then you go on to sling shame and guilt on us as the parents of the children saying,” they named their own abused children’s names. Here is the question – – – what parent in their right mind would publicly name their children who were sexually violated?” Which is of course is not true. And you would have known IF you could see past your hate for pastor Chuck and had the heart to watch the videos.

Prov. 2:1 My son, if you will receive my words and hide my commandments with you, so that you attend to wisdom, you shall extend your heart to understanding;…..

The Heroine of Victims and Champion of Truth Victimizes and Lies Again

From thewartburgwatch.com/2012/12/13/chuck-oneals-church-launches-true-bgbc-survivors-website/#comment-72925, Julie Anne on said:

JULIE ANNE SMITH WROTE:

“…I haven’t watched all the videos, but saw 2 videos of the parents of the abuser/victims. (The abuser was a teenage son who sexually molested younger siblings, one of which was a baby – he was tried, convicted, and sentenced time.) In that video, I was told, the children’s names were named. The parents allowed Chuck to videotape them and they named their own abused children’s names. Here is the question – – – what parent in their right mind would publicly name their children who were sexually violated? The key phrase is “in their right mind”. This is manipulation. Chuck is using this poor family who suffered a horrific situation in their family for his own defense.”

CHUCK RESPONDS:

Yes, an eighty pound, Clifford the Big Red Dog watching, physically and mentally developmentally handicapped boy, with the intellect of about an eight year old, was “tried, convicted, and sentenced time.” A far cry from the picture that Julie Anne has painted for the world. Julie Anne’s partner in slander, Meaghan Varela, accomplished that feat with her report to the DHS full of deliberate lies. She boasts regularly of how strong and brave she was to do this on Julie Anne’s bgbcslanderers blog. However, the boy was NOT convicted of “rape, etc.” as Julie Anne asserts. She has a problem telling the truth. You need to watch Matt and Dawn’s three videos for the truth (A Family Crushed by the Varela’s Hate, The Devil is in the Details, A Late Christmas Visit -Dec. 26th, 2008). After four years, Matt and Dawn are defending their family and their church from the lies Julie Anne and Meaghan have told their families, their friends, their pastors, their churches, the police, the DHS, the court, and the whole world on the internet. This family and their handicapped son’s situation is not a point of our guilt or shame; the guilt and shame is Meaghan Varela and Julie Anne Smith’s for their vicious attack on this family and this boy.

Julie Anne boldly lied about the public mention of the names of children in the videos. She makes an accusation that I videotaped Matt and Dawn naming “their abused children’s names,” and goes on to accuse, “what parent in their right mind would publicly name their children who were sexually violated? The key phrase is ‘in their right mind’. This is manipulation.” This is classic Julie Anne LIE and ACCUSE methodology. First you tell a lie then you build an accusation on top of it. Matt and Dawn DID NOT name their minor children. Matt and Dawn ARE NOT out of their minds. Matt and Dawn ARE NOT being manipulated. Julie Anne is trying to manipulate the facts to hide the reality of what she and Meaghan Varela have done to this family. They have abused this family for four years with LIES and ACCUSATIONS. If you want the truth… watch their videos. If you want more LIES, read Julie Anne’s comments and blogs.

Julie Anne shows that she is a habitual liar and an abuser of already hurting families. She wrote, “The abuser was a teenage son who sexually molested younger siblings, one of which was a baby.” Matt and Dawn want to make it very clear that there were NO CHARGES OF ANY KIND related to the baby of the family. Julie Anne just can’t stop lying and accusing. It is her drug and weapon of choice. Thank you for providing the world several examples of your LIE and ACCUSE methodology of abusing already suffering families.

Julie Anne closes her paragraph of lies and accusations quoted above with this sentence, “Chuck is using this poor family who suffered a horrific situation in their family for his own defense.” Julie Anne’s hypocrisy knows no bounds! This family suffered a tragic situation in that they discovered that their developmentally handicapped child was “inappropriately touching” his younger siblings at home. As loving and responsible parents they dealt with that situation thoroughly and it NEVER happened again. The “horrific situation” that Julie Anne writes about is one of her and Meaghan Varela’s creation. They ruthlessly lie about this boy, his family, and our church over and over again. They use Kevin as their favorite weapon to stab this family in the heart and an entire church in the back. I am not “using this poor” family. Julie Anne Smith and Meaghan Varela are using this poor family to try to destroy a church and a pastor because their friend was fired. Matt and Dawn are defending themselves and their children from Julie Anne and Meaghan’s incessant lies. WATCH THEIR THREE VIDEOS at bgbcsurvivors.org. Matt and Dawn are the TRUE BGBC SURVIVORS, surviving the vicious lies of Meaghan Varela and Julie Anne Smith.

Is Julie Anne omniscient? How is it that she knows better than Matt and Dawn what took place in their home, with their children? By her own testimony (in a follow up comment) she made her lying accusations regarding their situation based upon complete hearsay; “Chuck, I admit I haven’t been able to stomach watching some of those videos. I watched one of the __________ videos this morning and did not watch the other one. Someone reported to me that the names were mentioned (as I mentioned “I was told” in the comment).” Julie Anne constructed a lie and built an accusation against Matt and Dawn, and against me on top of it. You would think that someone so very concerned about victims, who writes, “I’m all about reporting the truth as I know it” would actually watch their videos before lying about what they contain and then building further accusations upon her lie. Julie Anne Smith and Meaghan Varela created Matt and Dawn’s “horrific situation” and they continue to beat them over the head with it and to stab them in the heart with it. A FURTHER NOTE: I blanked out the last name of the family before the word “videos.” Julie Anne provided the world their last name on thewartburgwatch.com, once again victimizing this family.

WATCH THEIR VIDEOS and face the truth Julie Anne. Stop adding lying accusation upon lying accusation. Stop abusing this family. Stop using this family and a developmentally handicapped boy in your vendetta to destroy a church and a pastor. Your heartless hypocrisy is appalling.
