Now, I’m not going to link to these comments/titles as they probably wouldn’t receive the gift of intelligent traffic well..but here are some highlights.
“Disgruntled former Calvary Chapel pastor Michael Newnham [aka the “Phoenix Preacher’] – Critic of Chuck Smith and advocate of Brian Brodersen – Comes out of the closet, declaring, “Why I AM (becoming) An Anglican” in a recent post.”
“he and alot of his friends are Catholic contemplative promoting, emergent & ecumenical.”
“Phoenix Preacher [interesting name] is basically entering the left/liberal wing of the Catholic church.”
“I’ve debated with Michael many times over the years. He was always a strong proponent of the “lordship salvation” false gospel that leads to hell, which also came primarily from catholicism through its daughters calvinism and arminianism (Michael was a calvinist). So I made a comment on his anglican post that he is just taking the natural next step from the “lordship salvation” heresy to Rome. He’s always been a fake, he was never a Bible believer. He was a “traditions of man” believer”
What would an ODM be without a conspiracy theory?
“Interesting that Newhan, being such a Fan of BB and his new direction for CC – that it’s the Anglican COE that BB is in bed with in his ‘Creation Fest’ UK… small world after all.”
“With Phoenix Preacher, I think Calvary Chapel serves as a “home to Rome” mechanism anyhow, maybe he’s still taking orders? “
Then there are the historians…
“Michael Newnham and me have debated quite a bit. He is an angry man that has a warped view of church history. He makes excuses for Rome and their idolatry because he knows that if he admits that the Church of Rome has been the Whore of Babylon since 196 AD, then that legitimatizes the Protestant daughters.”
About the only thing these folks got right was the name of the blog and my name…and they couldn’t always spell that correctly.
Now, I admit to being very amused by this stuff… because I can afford to be.
These wild hillbilly rants have no real effect on the rest of my life.
Others are not so fortunate…and that’s why we will continue to try to bring correction when we see other brethren attacked with lies and fantasies and without cause by the ODM’s and their ilk.
