I’ve decided to respond to the email Mr. Jacob Prasch of Moriel Ministries asked to be published on this site. Hopefully I was a bit more gracious towards him and his “response” then he was with me.
You be the judge.
[HI SANDY, PLEASE USE THIS ONE TO SEND TO TIM, THE BLOG, AND TO FLASHY PHIL]
I am afraid that Flashy Phil is an ignoramus.
First off my name is Phil Naessens. My friends call me “PhillyFlash” or “Flash”. You aren’t my friend Mr. Prasch. I’ll let the “ignoramus” crack go, at least for now.
If Flashy Phil had read the website before commenting he would see that most of the articles regarding Haggard are not even mine and are not authored by me but by a member of our USA team or outside contributors. Moriel is ‘Jacob & Friends’ not “Jacob”.
Well, actually all that I read was the article “Bro Tim” posted with your byline on it (source). I was referring to you Mr. Prasch and not your team of contributors. Their names weren’t on the byline and “Brother Tim” didn’t leave a link to your article.
If Flashy Phil had read the website before commenting he would see that article is a sequel to other articles on the website (one by Mike / Sandy) on Sister Ted where the issues are well documented.
Sister Ted?????? Is that any way for a Christian to refer to another male and especially a brother in Christ?
If Flashy Phil had reviewed the website before commenting he would have seen a variety of material from the Moriel missions program to AIDS orphan babies in Africa to the feeding program for garbage dump children in The Philippines, to pro-active scriptural exposition unrelated to Discernment issues, to evangelistic material oriented towards seeing Jews, Catholics, Muslims, Mormons etc. saved. It also lists churches we were led to plant.This is what Jesus has called us to do. What does Flashy Phil do except churn out internet rubbish defendIng wickedness?
Personally I could care less what you claim to do. Big deal. Churn out articles defending wickedness? I think you should spend a bit more time reading my site prior to sending out hate filled email rants Mr. Prasch. You know something else Jacob? You responded exactly the way the Word of Faith adherents do when they are upset…..you know, the “what are you doing and look what I’m doing”. Nice!!!
In fact Discernment related material constitutes only a clear minority % of what is on the website. How Flashy Phil can call this “One Trick Pony” tells me that he is an ignorant clown.
Well now Jacob, I’ve apologized and repented for my “one trick pony comment”. I wonder if you will apologize for any of the name calling, poor research and bragging about what you claim to do for the Lord??
I don’t like to revile, but it is just so hard to find a euphemism for a half literate ignoramus.
Well, that didn’t stop you now did it? Thanks Jacob for demonstrating how clever you really are. Wow!
Flashy Phil avoids the issue Paul established in his Epistle to Timothy. Scripturally Haggard no longer has a good name with those outside the church so he is no longer scripturally allowed to lead a church. If he truly repented he would accept the scriptural ramifications of his sin of illegal drug abuse, lying, and having perverted sex with other men. Plainly Haggard does no care about The Word of Gd and neither does Flashy Phil.
Why Jacob, I didn’t avoid anything. I’ll place a comment I left in response to someone who knows how to make a point without talking smack.
Scripture twisting? How so? I’m not trying to sound “superior” but I’m reading it in the Greek and its obvious that is a present tense deal otherwise who among us could really be blameless? Arthur gave a great example of why he isn’t “blameless” and he is correct. (source)
I don’t care about the Word of God eh Jacob???? I most certainly do and had you of actually taken the time to read this site in general and the above comment in particular you would have known this…..or maybe not. Either way you owe me an apology Jacob but I won’t hold my breathe.
Please forward this to Flashy Phil (without my personal e mail address as I do not waste time corresponding with ignorant clowns), copy it to Brother Tim, and post t on the blog..
You knew I would respond to your outstanding email didn’t you? Bet you never thought in your wildest dreams I’d do it publicly did ya????
BTW: You are aware that “Brother Tim” hasn’t stepped foot inside a church in 30 years and has ZERO ecclesiastical accountability aren’t you? The reformers (Luther, Calvin and that crew) wouldn’t even consider this man a “brother” as he forsakes the assembly of believers (Hebrews 10:25). It makes me very happy to know that your ministry has “ Discernment related material constitutes only a clear minority % of what is on the website” because clearly you don’t have any and neither does whoever sent you “Brother Tim’s” whining complaint.
As a Christian courtesy I will reply one time, even to a clown just in case he claims to be a Christian.
Thanks Jacob! Your “Christian courtesy” made my day. Wonder how your buddies you copied on this email felt about your “Christian courtesy”? Can’t wait to hear as I’m sure “Brother Tim” will fill you all in on my response to your “Christian courtesy”!
I’m sure you believe you are “In Christ” but is Christ in you?
