Since Ted Cruz has made his father Rafael one of his primary campaign speakers, one should be able to look into his past to see if he is trust worthy or not.
Upon researching it is interesting to see that Rafael Cruz's resume doesn't seem to add up. Virtually every part of his biography has been disputed based on the facts.
For example, the True the Vote Summit website listed Rafael Cruz as “Director of Purifying Fire Ministries, ministering in the U.S., Mexico and Central America. He is also a professor of Bible and Theology, and the president of Kingdom Translation Services.” This is a common bio you will find provided on many websites or speaking events Rafael has attended, though sometimes differing in details, such as in spelling or names. Sometimes he is a “pastor” of a Dallas church, other times that is not mentioned.
There was no Purifying Fire Ministries that he was “director” of. It does not exist anywhere. There is no location for it anywhere. There are no remnants of a website somewhere. There is the Purifying Fire Ministries that was operated by Suzanne Hinn (the ex-wife of Charismaniac Benny Hinn), but the Cruz campaign has denied any connection with them, claiming that he “only used the name” for a little while before dropping it. Keep in mind, this “dropping” would have to have been pretty recent, because Rafael Cruz was being identified as “Director” of Purifying Fire Ministries as recently as January of this year.
Bizarrely, the Suzanne Hinn affiliated website was actually identified as belonging to Rafael Cruz in this speech he gave, despite the denials of any connection with the Purifying Fires franchise. That same website actually came down sometime early 2015.
Of course, Rafael Cruz has no church in Dallas either. He is a “one-man” pastor, which the campaign admits.
We find similar problems when we examine his “Presidency” at Kingdom Translation Services. It is a real business, it seems, where he is listed as both Director and President, and, in the past 3 years since it was founded, has only put out an audio bible of Rafael Cruz reading the Bible in Spanish. The address associated with this business takes you to a residential address— which all leads me to believe that Rafael Cruz is the Director and President of a business with probably just one employee, himself.
Rafael Cruz’s claim of being a Professor of Bible theology.
“He’s also claimed to be President of Kingdom Translation Services (another one-man gig that he started a year ago), and a “professor of Bible and Theology”, first at Advance Institute, then Advanced Bible Institute, neither of which can be found… anywhere…”
All of this is just the tip of the iceberg. Cruz’s immigration story (he might either have broken immigration law or embellished his story), his life in Cuba, his “fire bombing” for Castro, of having witnessed certain revolutionaries die (when they were on the other side of Cuba), and so many other details, are all contradicted.
Donald Trump likes to call Ted Cruz - Lyin' Ted. Perhaps the apple doesn't fall far from the tree?
