An Unintentional Endorsement of Swedenborg

Pat David pointed out to me that Troy Brooks web page, “Emanuel Swedenborg was Definitely Unsaved,” actually does a good job of selling the teachings of the New Church.

Brooks probably got his information about what the New Church teaches from the “Contrasting Beliefs” section of Rev. John Odhner's web site, New Truth. Brooks' repeated claim is that the new ideas of the New Church “bear false witness against the Bible.” This is understandable considering that, in the literal sense, it certainly does seem that there is no marriage in heaven and that God gets angry. A good response to these sorts of claims can be found in the “What the Bible Says” section of Odhner's site.
