Deeply offensive and aimed at provoking sexual arousal

During the court proceedings, the witness was asked to read aloud the explicit messages sent by Ebit Lew and to provide her interpretation of their content.

She described the messages as being deeply offensive, aimed at provoking sexual arousal to fulfill Lew’s desires.

“To me, these words would outrage a woman’s modesty as he is trying to get someone to satisfy his sexual desires,” she explained.

‘He should always be with his wife’

She also recounted telling Lew that if he needed such interactions, he should turn to his wife instead.

“What I meant was that he should always be with his wife so that he would not need to seduce others,” she said.

Perception vs. reality: The preacher’s public image

The witness expressed that her perception of Ebit Lew’s character, based on his social media persona, was vastly different from the reality she experienced.

She mentioned that his social media posts often depicted him respecting women and likening his wife to an angel, which had led her to believe that he held women in high regard.

However, the lewd messages painted a starkly different picture, suggesting that he viewed women primarily as objects for sexual gratification.
