Pots and Kettles

Now here's a weird one.  Jack Van Impe (JVI) has left TBN after being scolded by Paul and Jan for criticizing OC mega-church pastors Rick Warren and Robert Schuller.

In a recent broadcast, Van Impe took Warren and Schuller to task for teaching what Van Impe calls "Chrislam," -- a term for the mixture of Christianity and Islam.  TBN management took issue with JVI criticizing them, and so JVI decided to look for broadcast time elsewhere. 

"Van Impe's program cited Warren's speech to an Islamic conference in Washington in 2009 and Schuller's keynote address at an interfaith conference called `A Common Word' in 2008."  You can find the article here:  Click Here

And this from a man (JVI) who once labeled amillennialism as the greatest heresy in church history.  Something about pots and kettles comes to mind.

How about a grainy picture of the guy with the deep voice? "And here's Rexella."

Man, amillenialism is the worst heresy in church history? How low can dispensationalist go?

if "Chrislam" is mixing Christianity and Islam, then is mixing Christianity and rabbinic Judaism "Judeanity"? Oh wait! No! that's dispensationalism

DB, or theonomy.

Zrim is right; it sounds like theonomy.

Zrim, Richard, I forgot about theonomy (are there still theonomist? I thought they all turned into federal visionists -- but I am probably wrong). Seems to me theonomy and dispensationalism are two different recipes for confusing law and gospel.

db, oh yes, there are plenty. You're right, they both are two sides of a skewed coin. And is it any wonder that among dispies are the religious righties, which is evangelicalism's version of theonomy, which is Calvinism's version of Methodism.

Check out Vision Forum sometime. It's like a parallel universe of Mormons.

I want to know what kind of doctorate Rexella has.

That announcer guy, with the dreadful wig, is quite throaty.

The Crouch dynasty is light years above the Van Impes in bogus success but equally atrocious in theology.

I love watching old TBN episodes from the 80's as they receive applause and congratulate themselves. The clothes, the hair, the heresies.

Next thing you know, he'll be listening to WHI and writing articles for MR.

WHOOPIE! 'Jack Van Wimpee' and 'Tyrannosaurus Rex-ella' have finally gone extinct.... the world is a happier place now as one more neurotic "Immaculate Evacuationist" broadcaster bites the dust!

Finally - a blog reporting this story without ignoring Van Impe's horrible theology. Pots & kettles indeed!
