Short two minute video...


Anyone know anything about him?  Ive only heard a few things about him, but several of my "emergent" type Church friends who are over their Rob Bell phase seem to be into this guy.  Everything Ive heard from him so far leads me to believe he will eventually become Orthodox or at least Catholic.

Does what he say in that short video sound Orthodox?

Even if we have thousands of acts of great virtue to our credit, our confidence in being heard must be based on God's mercy and His love for men. Even if we stand at the very summit of virtue, it is by mercy that we shall be saved.

As far as American Evos go, he's one of the better ones.

He does, however, hold to some of the standard anabaptist and baptist historical myths (Venerating Mary came from Isis, Constantinian Shift, etc.)

And he has some of the typical anabaptist dualistic and cathari tendencies.

And he's an annihilationist.

And he seems to believe that physical violence, violence, and physical action upon someone else are interchangeable.

And he has some strange notions attempting to reconcile Christianity with new philosophies, and these notions may mess with God.

But nobody's perfect. I like the guy.
