Tony Miano Lies about Jesse Morrell
Tony Miano is a staunch Calvinist who has repeatedly and habitually attacked myself and other non-Calvinists. I once called him out for spreading a lie that I was a some type of “nomad” street preacher that didn’t go to church. When I told him that I do go to church, have always gone to a church as long as I’ve been a Christian, and that I even speak in churches all across the country, he refused to accept this fact and continues to spread the lie that I am “out of church” and a “nomad.”
He made this lie up out of thin air and when I asked him to provide ANY proof for this false accusation he was completely unable to do so. It sure it convenient to be able to make up lies out of nowhere to slander your theological opponents isn’t it? But if we are going to compromise integrity and honesty, what is the point of debating theology at all? Because Tony is unable to actually refute my theology, he tries to slander my character and person. It is called an Ad Hominem Attack and only goes to show that he must resort to false accusations because he is unable to refute my theology as it actually is.
Someone just recently wrote to Tony Miano and publicly asked:
“That’s interesting you don’t think Jed and CIndy Smock are not Christians. Or do you just disagree with their preaching method? And what do you think about Jesse Morrell?”
Tony responded publicly and said:
” I do not believe any of the before-mentioned people are Christians because they are all self-professed Pelagians. They do not worship the Jesus of the Bible. They do not believe the gospel of the Bible.”
I, Jesse Morrell, wrote Tony and said:
You are constantly lying about me Tony. First you said I was a nomad that has no church even though I DO go to church and always have. And now you are calling me a “self-professed Pelagian.” What a liar! I have never called myself a Pelagian and do not consider myself one. I have never called myself a Pelagian. It is CALVINISTS who call me that because they want to slander me. Just like the devil you are. Calvinists really do sin every day don’t they?
Sure I have some agreements with Pelagius, like free will, but that doesn’t make me a “Pelagian” since ALL the early church believed in free will long before Pelagius even existed. Catholics believe in the Trinity, does that make everyone who believes in the Trinity a Catholic? Certainly not. Should I start calling you a Catholic Tony because you believe in the Trinity? I would be lying if I did. And so, why do you call me a Pelagian simply because I believe in free will? Stop lying. Your constant dishonesty is very telling of your heart and shows the weakness of your debate skills.
I think that your Calvinist theology is really Gnostic or at least semi-Gnostic. Should I start saying “Tony Miano is a self-professed Gnostic” since your admitted theology has similarities with theirs?
So the real question is this: Can habitual liars be saved? Can you be a “Christian” and a habitual liar? Can you really worship the Jesus of the Bible or believe the gospel of the Bible if you are a persistent and impenitent liar?
