Hank Hanegraaff "The Bible Answer Man" has gone Orthodox

Post by Jocose » Fri Apr 21, 2017 7:39 am

CRI or Christian Research Institutes Hank Hanegraaff has gone Orthodox

It's sad that many evangelicals are so upset about this. It's almost like most American Christians only know what they think Christianity should be through an American lens, if that makes any sense.

Anyway, this is good stuff.

I think most people get sad or upset when people they know and share an understanding of faith with make a shift like this. It doesn't matter what faith group they leave and join.

True dat.

Also cool that an "American Super evangelical!" (TM) like Hanegraaff has made this shift to the Early Church!

Whether it is cool or not is obviously rather subjective. If it wasn't then this wouldn't be news and wouldn't be so hotly discussed in some circles.

Hanegraff explains his conversion to Orthodoxy.

Without even clicking the link I am certain it is a Rickroll.

Sorry FredS, I'm with ID on this one.

I have no idea WTH you're talking about. What's a Rickroll?

Here's a link to an article explaining it.

I have not heard of Hank Hanegraaff before. I hope that's okay.

Sort of like Scott Hahn, then? I had no idea who he was before I read one of his books.

Clarification: not to be construed as mockery of either HH or SH. I just hadn't heard of either until relatively recently.

I find this very interesting and surprising, but kind of cool. I listened to The Bible Answer Man on and off for years, and referred to it often when checking into one ministry, movement, or another. I burned out on Hank's didactic tone, and constant repeat of certain tropes he uses.
His statement that his beliefs have not changed is all I need to know.

Hahahaa! I felt the same way back when I was first introduced to Hanegraaf when I was carpooling with this guy who forced Hanks radio show "The bible answer man" upon my (at the time) not willing to hear any of it ears.

The guy I was carpooling with didn't know it but Hanks show kinda planted a seed in me about spiritual life and questions and it was kinda fun poking my friend about some of the topics people would call in and talk about.

Good times.

I used to listen to this guy on the radio. I called him Hank Pantywad on account of his panties always being in a wad.

He used to rant like a madman against The Real Presence and the Eucharist.

Maybe he's been trolling CPS as one of goose's 15 sock puppets.

I stopped listening to the 'Bible Answer Man' after Dr. W. Martin's death. I always saw HH as an interloper w/out the spirit of grace. Voted with the off button. Vindicated.

I have listened to The Bible answer man, both while Walter Marten and Hank Hanegraaff hosted the show on Bot Radio. A week after Hank announced his conversion to Greek Orthodox, Bot cancels the show, no announcement, just replaced it. I have the Equip app on my phone so I still listen, but it just annoys me that He converts, then he is canceled.
