    I don’t blame evangelical radio stations/ networks for dropping the newly Orthodoxed Hank Hanegraaf. He’s going to preach Orthodoxy, I don’t think he can be deterred. This is admirable but the evangelicals shouldn’t be expected to put up with it.

    If one of the speakers on Ancient Faith Radio converted to some form of evangelicalism, he’d be off the air before you could say Bob’s yer Uncle.

    But the speakers that network intends to use as replacements! David Barton! That pastor from Texas who is very political…. Better to just play some nice hymns until you can find a decent replacement.

    Some traditions have closed communion, others have closed radio.

    Also…. some people are very anxious that we all know all of HH’s sins, which are apparently numerous and egregious.

    Let’s remember that the origin of all this was HH’s trip to China where he met humble, Christlike Christians and asked himself if he was even a Christian at all. This suggests the beginnings of a broken heart and the EO Church is a good place to do one’s repenting.

    People are upset that he hasn’t immediately apologized, etc., to all those he ran over like a steam roller. Maybe he will. Give it some time. If he’s the same person ten years from now that he was ten years ago, I would say his conversion was superficial.

    Xenia- you beat me to the David Barton comment!

    Regrading the “People I Don’t Need to Listen To” link…really good stuff…but since I agree with the article and the article states that I don’t need to give my attention to those I only agree with,….

    The Roar Roar Heard Round the World, by Timothy George, was a very good article.

    lots of tantalizing links today – thank you

    i remember the Mondoks… amazing couple (must not be evangelicals, eh? 🙂 )

    i can’t be too hard on those who are turning to the ancient traditions as my late husband and i turned from the corporate modeled church approach in the early 70s – the two of us could survive, but our children would have grown up instructed in a phony modeling of the Faith – be nice and mind your manners, find your clique/niche, look for people that you can look down on – help them, cuz that’s what Christianity is all about – let the downtrodden know that they, too, can be nice, clean and prosper – just like you … maybe

    has its place i guess… some think it’s the American way…

    and the Chinese Christians are a different breed – closer to what we’d all be if we’d functioned under hostile governments, i think – dunno

    Only 14% left their churches?

    I thought it would be higher.

    Michael, I just left a comment on your Facebook page but I also wanted to say thank you here on your blog, too. I appreciate the friendship of you and your readers. I’ve met some really cool friends here.

  9. Jtk says:

    So the 14% who left their churches, where did they go?

    I know real men of God hurting over this issue who pastor churches who feel “damned if they do, damned if they don’t.”

    I don’t know how many men of God really bow to the idol of politics over Jesus personally.

    But I know OF several…
