However Newman’s mystical Jesus is simply the age-old temptation of looking to a physical substance to obtain life. In this video Richard Bennett and Michael de Semlyen analyze the consequences.
John Henry Newman was a double agent for Rome who helped to lead Anglicans into the Roman Catholic Church. After leaving the Church of England, Newman was ordained a Cardinal and posthumously canonized by Rome.

This error can lead people into apostasy as many are fascinated by the mystical aspect of the claimed actual presence of the Lord.
