Yesterday, Calvary Bible Church, an Independent, Fundamentalist, Bob Jones loving, church, in Lima, Ohio celebrated its 52 anniversary. The special special speaker for the day was Hephzibah House operator Ron Williams. Williams and Hephzibah House is well known for promoting the abuse of children. Over the years, many allegations of physical and emotional abuse have been lodged against Hephzibah House.
The Calvary Baptist Church bulletin described Ron Williams this way:
We will Welcome Ron Williams of Hephzibah House on March 25th to help us celebrate 52 years of God’s great blessings. We have supported Hephzibah House prayerfully and financially for most of the years of its existence. Dr. Williams left secular social work to establish this ministry when he and his wife saw great need for a residential home for girls who were in great spiritual need. This work has been hated by a very vocal minority who have used the internet for several years to harass and attempt to destroy. God has preserved Dr. Williams in spite of these attacks, and we believe this ministry will continue to be a blessing. Ron Williams is an eloquent speaker, and we know we will his messages in Sunday School and church. We will have an anniversary dinner at 2:00 which will replace our normally scheduled evening times. The afternoon session will also be a PTF meeting for all school parents.
The vocal minority on Sunday was four brave women who stood on public property outside of Calvary Bible Church and protested Ron Williams speaking at the Church. Here are a few pictures of their good work. I want to commend these ladies for their fearless stand against the continued misuse and abuse of children that is going on in Independent Fundamentalist circles.
