As a former employee and past supporter of this ministry I too at one time firmly believed that Focus on the Family was a God-ordained vehicle of truth and deliverance.
But the evidence I have uncovered in recent years speaks more of lies and damaged lives then it does of truth and deliverance.
Life after divorce for men over 40 is very different from what their married friends think it is.
Their friends think that a divorced guy should immediately get out there and sample as many different women as possible and that will automatically help them get over their divorce.
Multiple thousands of copies of this tape were sent out to callers and writers to the ministry who asked for it.
I processed quite a few orders myself for this particular item. It was later discovered that Tom Papania is a fraud. Part of Tom Papania's testimony was stolen from another man who filed a lawsuit against Focus on the Family which forced the ministry to discontinue the Papania tape and remove it from their catalog. They keep quiet about the issue and refuse to take the pro-active position needed to correct the problem.
It was an incredibly popular tape and in early 1997 became the most requested broadcast in Focus history and launched Papania into a very successful career as an international speaker.
He is also published author in various professional journals.
For millions of supporters of Focus on the Family, including the large constituencies of Evangelical, Catholic and Charismatic believers the notion that there are catastrophic problems within a ministry they have been led to believe is helping to strengthen the family unit and spread the Gospel is often hard for them to grasp.
But did the ministry ever issue a public apology on any of their radio programs or in their magazines for the role they played in promoting a liar? If you contact the ministry asking for the tape you will be informed that because of concerns with the accuracy of Tom Papania's testimony they have decided to no longer endorse the man. They don't volunteer it.) But what about the many thousands of people who bought the tape and think they possess a legitimate story of Christian conversion?
Unless they discover the truth about this man they will continue to believe a lie.
