JOANNA HIGGINBOTHAM, ROCA UNDER METROPOLITAN AGATHANGEL
Nathan Lee Lewis's text is in white. Joanna Higginbotham's interjections are in blue and my own interjections are in yellow
I asked Joanna if she would be so kind as to give her thoughts and refute the now regurgitated Milan reader Nathan Lee Lewis's mindless attempt to discredit Fr. Seraphim (Rose) in his self serving un Orthodox JTO post of Aug 15, 2012, "Roseites and the Charismatic Gifts". This strange, allegedly Orthodox man attempts very hard to prove his views as being Orthodox, however it is quite evident he is in reality just some weird, deluded Protestant Charismatic nincompoop.
One writer, on Wikipedia, * gives clarity with a good historic picture of the problem with Roseites:
* Yes, certainly this is written by a deluded Orthodox Charismatic, I wouldn't doubt if it isn't Lewis himself. It also predominately states these following citations. Contrary to popular belief people actually do make things up on the internet.
"This article needs additional citations for verification. (February 2010"
And "The neutrality of this article is disputed. (July 2014)"
The tragedy for the Roseites is that they mirror their preferred saint's life, in that, they are "living a life void of the supernatural miracles", or void of even one of the spiritual gifts through which they may minister in the dynamous power. It is one thing, however, for the Roseites to choose for themselves, to live a life void of the supernatural gifts of the Spirit, it is another for them to have, as their mission, the denouncement and even, in some cases, the personal and often public destruction of the faithful orthodox believers who refuse to limit the workings of the Holy Spirit among us. I ask you: Who is the greater danger to the Body of Christ, those who live and attack out of fear, or those who live and act out of faith?
*No, Lewisites take note!
*Lewisites: Use your Holy Spirit given logic and quite believing anything this anti-Christ, anti-Church imposter has to say. Luke :34-35 "I know who You are-- the Holy One of God!" But Jesus rebuked him, saying, "Be quiet and come out of him!" This shows that even though the demon in this man recognized and proclaimed Christ the Holy One of God, he was rebuked, showing us that even if a demon (or person) proclaims a truth, God still doesn't want us to pay him any mind because they will mix truth with falsehood
