First of all, our co-blogger Ken let us know that:
David Waltz has not returned to Rome - but he is open to Bahai'ism -I actually missed that the first time around. But it gets better.
see our discussion here at his website- especially in the comboxes.
"Me: Yes, I remain open to the possibility that the Bahai Faith is true. . . . "
David Waltz also said in a comment that Blogger apparently ate (since Blogger has been eating comments left and right today, unfortunately mostly to David's detriment):
you and Rhology are ‘allowed’ a number of worldview and/or ecclesiastical changes in your respective journeys without the worry of derogatory comments being cast your way, but I, who have made fewer changes than either you or Rho, must constantly defend my spiritual journey
Um, unthinking heathen -> atheist -> Christian is not very many changes. 1.5 or so.
If I apply your understanding of “change” I have made NONE—I am, and always have been, a Christian.
1) No, you haven't always been. You were born an enemy of God.David:
2) You were once a Jehovah's Witness. Um, that's not Christian.
3) You were once a Roman Catholic. Not Christian either.
4) I have no idea whether you hold to the biblical Gospel, but my educated guess is that you do not.
So no, I'm sorry; your statement is false.
If JWs are not Christian, what are they? Buddhist, Jewish, Muslim…
So, in reality, though I had begun by thinking this was a relatively minor issue, it is of a much greater concern to all of us, for David, than I had originally thought. While defending himself from the occasional questioning regarding his spiritual journey and instability, he has honestly and openly called Jehovah's Witness a Christian religion, and it has been revealed that he thinks Baha'i is a live option in the marketplace of ideas. Let us indeed pray for David Waltz.
