Stumbled on Youtube and found these clips dealing with CRI (Christian Research Institute) President Hank Hanegraaf in controversy. Actually this is old news but former WCG bloggers like Aggie and Gavin Rumney are the biggest “non-fans” of Hank since the beginning. I have always admired Hank’s stand to make a clear distinction between the Kingdom of Christ and the Kingdom of the Cults (where some more liberal humanists would blur the lines and believe in a group hug no matter what wrong doctrine it is). I met Hank at The People’s Church in Toronto in 1999 and found him very cordial in person. He was nice enough to autograph my own copy of Christianity In Crisis. Though I may not agree with every word with some Sabbatarian Christians, I still to this day defend their right to observe a day for God, I had no use for Hank’s caricature of them doing so. I knew for some time that his predecessor’s (Walter Martin) family has some conflicts (and they sound legitimate) with Hank to this very day. It is my hope that Hank, if he is sincere and the allegations proven substantially true will make peace and reconciliation in the spirit of Matthew 5:23.
