Blast from the past... "Damned for Not Damning" by Chris Rosebrough

OH YES! And this one ties it all together - what he has done with Daniel Price and Tullian and John Philoponus and probably numerous others that I haven't heard about yet. He has fully UNrepented for starting this pattern of being a hypocritical bully which he tested out on a few of us women back in 2010. I had almost forgotten about this article, but he just deleted it off his site after Nov 22 of this year and someone brought a dead link to my attention.

Damned for Not Damning

In it he talks about how private information (which he incorrectly calls "primary source evidence") trumps all other evidence.

It was then that I learned the difference between discernment and witch hunts, between journalism and propaganda. I also learned that primary source evidence trumps all other evidence. But most importantly I learned that lies are the native language of the devil (John 8:44) and they can never be employed in service to Christ, the Gospel or His Kingdom no matter how well meaning the person is who employed them.

Apparently not so much. Let's just forget he ever said that, shall we? *smirk*

And, of course, this means I was right, as I mentioned when this first came out - he has fully faked or at least rescinded the apology he gave to Ingrid Schlueter over the whole Dan Kimball thing. I guess he really does want to be like Brannon Howse after all.

He clearly has learned nothing from Ergun Caner. The Internet never forgets.

Law and Gospel Does Not Make Reformed Evangelical Churches orthodox (Steadfast Lutherans-Tim Wood)

An excellent article by Pr Tim Wood (LCMS) on the whole Tullian Tchividjian bromance with some evangelical and Lutheran pastors. I especially noted the use of the adverb "briefly" and the editor's note, with some sense of sad amusement and agreement.

Rosebrough claims he was deceived then blames those who weren't

Yawn.  Same old same old from Chris.  Blame everyone who arrived at the right conclusion based on the evidence LONG before you did.

The following screenshots were in response to this thread and article by Julie Anne at Spiritual Sounding board.

This boils down to “Calculus and Biochemistry teachers are engaging in gaslighting because *I* don’t know or understand any of that stuff.” — the essential Chris Rosebrough, preschool teacher extraordinaire.

It's not as if anyone with any common sense couldn't see the repentance was fake.  Maybe Chris gets blinded by a person's personal charms but that doesn't mean everyone does. It's also not as if people haven't been trying to warn him for at least three or four years (I have personally, I don't know about anyone else) that there is something wrong with Tullian's teaching.  I have said before that I think some of the critiques were unbalanced (Steve Lawson's in particular) but that doesn't mean they have been baseless.

But hey, he does admit he was deceived by a Christian Celebrity.  Where is this "discerner's" discernment? Why did he promote the guy when he knew so little about him?

Will he now go on to admit his discernment sucked here? Will he actually go back and analyze Tullian's message to see what is missing?

I won't hold my breath.
