RAVI ZACHARIAS CLARIFIES CALLING HENRI NOUWEN GREAT SAINT »

Apprising Ministries showed you Ravi Zacharias Calls Universalist Henri Nouwen “One Of The Greatest Saints.” The piece did not speak as to whether Zacharias still considered this universalist apostate such.

RAVI ZACHARIAS CALLS UNIVERSALIST HENRI NOUWEN “ONE OF THE GREATEST SAINTS” »

Back in September of 2008 Apprising Ministries ran a piece called Ravi Zacharias Answers “Can A Person Live A Sincere Christian Life As A Homosexual?”  There I placed a You Tube clip where the well-respected evangelical apologist Ravi Zacharias states emphatically: One of the greatest saints of recent memory was Henri Nouwen.
