It was six hours long, filmed in 1987, and is one of the most interesting and fast moving debates between a Roman Catholic and Fundamentalist I have yet to see. For those interested, we have typed up the main points and arguments from this heated debate. http://www.excatholicsforchrist.com/articles.php?PageURL=Karl%20Keating%20defender%20of%20the%20Catholic%20faith.htm
Why not post it on google video or youtube... I'd be interested to see it.
Yes, I would be to.
I dont know exactly where Ruckman stood back in the late eighties when this debate took place... but as of late he is viewed as an extreme kook, and I have to say that I agree with this view of him. I dont know if it's because of his age or if he has always been this way, but he has done more harm than good for fundamentalism as a whole.His stance on the KJV (and I am considered a KJV-Only person) is extreme and to the point of being bizarre. His fundamentalist views are even worse. When people attack those of us who stand for the KJV, they do so by quoting many of the bizarre, extreme, and nut-job teachings of Ruckman. When they do this they lump all of us in the same catgory with Ruckman... and Ruckman and I couldnt be further apart.While this debate about the Catholic Church may be a good one, and filled with valuable information (I've giving it the benefit of the doubt, since I havent seen it) I would warn everyone here to approach any teachings by Peter Ruckman with caution. He does preach salvation... but he dives off the deep end after that on many doctrines. Not to mention that his public tyrades against his detractors (I say public because he has no problem publishing his tyrades) is malicious and mean spirited.Krispy
One either loves or hates Ruckman. However, we all need to be VERY careful about what we accept or reject, when listening to any particular teacher. Always filter what one says, with an open Bible.
Be sure of one thing... I dont [i]hate[/i] Ruckman. I believe he is a brother. I dont reject all of his teachings, just like I dont totally reject all of Benny Hinn's teachings. I'm simply issuing a warning about Ruckman because some of his teachings would be best suited for the Far Side cartoons.Krispy
I know Ruckman has his flaws (don't we all) but Benny Hinn is a false teacher and a liar! The man also earns $200 million a year.Please see the following clip on Mr. Hinn: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2ibJatMfag8
