Dr. James White examines Hank Hanegraaff’s recent explanations of his conversion to Eastern Orthodoxy, in the light of the gospel, Sola Scriptura, Sola Fide, prayers to icons, theosis, and other Eastern Orthodox distinctives such as “sacred oral tradition in the liturgy”.
Addendum comments by me (Ken Temple) added on Feb. 10, 2018:
Dr. White demonstrates Hanegraaff’s inconsistency, because Eastern Orthodoxy believes in the Bible plus oral/ secret tradition, passed down through the liturgy in church history, and also in the infallibility of the first Seven Ecumenical Councils. So, they deny Sola Scriptura, that Scripture is the final authority and only infallible authority; and EO denies Sola Fide, that we are justified before God by faith alone in Christ alone to save us. The Eastern Orthodox’s rituals and prayers to icons and dead saints and believing that matter and relics can transmit grace to a person are also a big problem for consistent Protestant Evangelicals. The Bible Answer Man program, originally started by Walter Martin, was suppossed to be Protestant Program.
