Apologist Sye Ten Bruggencate Leaves Public Ministry After Admitting to ‘Moral Failing’

Sye Ten Bruggencate, the Christian apologist best known for advancing presuppositional apologetics for the layman via his film “How to Answer a Fool” as well as numerous debates with atheists, announced on his Facebook that he has been disqualified from ministry due to a ‘moral failing’, and would be deleting several of his social media pages as a result.

Explaining that he is “sorry for the shame my sin has brought upon the name of Christ and for the hurt I have caused,” Sye will spend the next season of his life under the care of his church elders, and likely will never be involved in public ministry again.

He writes:

It is with great sadness that I must inform you that I have been guilty of moral failure and will no longer be involved in public ministry. I have spoken with the elders of my church, and they have determined that my sin disqualifies me from the ministry.

This means that I will no longer be involved in teaching, preaching, or apologetics. I am sorry for the shame my sin has brought upon the name of Christ and for the hurt I have caused. Please pray for me.I have submitted myself to the care of the elders of Faith Presbyterian Church, Tillsonburg.

If you have any questions please email my elders at faitharpelders@gmail.com

This post will remain on my private page until I delete my page this evening, but will remain on my public page which my Session will now be controlling.


Enjoy our content? GREAT! Unfortunately, ad revenue for truth-telling websites has been severely hampered by consorship and de-platforming. This ministry isn't free to run, and finding people willing to support polemical theology is like trying to find a needle in a haystack.

So we have some great ways for you to EASILY support our work that will take less than 3 minutes of your time to do.
First, check our our page explaining this all at detail at https://supportpolemics.com

But in short, you can support us on Patreon and get exclusive rewards like the FULL non-truncated episodes of the bi-weely Polemics Report podcast ONLY available on your Patreon app. It's super easy to use. Get exclusive updates from JD. Get all that and support our work for only $5.95 a month. You'll also get a PAID subscription to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" once a day for 50 news links to banned content you can't find in social media. For other patron tiers, you can join us live via zoom to interact with JD during the Bulldgomatic Bible study, get free theology books in the mail, and more.

Or, if you don't want to use Patreon and don't want the rewards, subscribe to 'The Insurgency' "banned news blasts" for free (three days a week) or $7 dollars a month (notice that's a dollar more than getting it through Patreon) or $70 dollars a year. Instead of you scouring the news, let our Gideon Knox News team do the news-hunting FOR YOU and it will save you time finding real news.

And finally, you can give a one time financial gift through Giving Fuel . It's also super-easy to set up and takes only minutes.

  1. Just how deep and wide spread is this corrupted sin filled Christiandom?So glad GOD is bringing these sins out into the open. WHAT shame they have brought to our Holy Holy Holy GOD.

  2. We all fail morally every day. Anyone who says otherwise is either self-deceived or a liar. Or both. All we can do is repent and pray God has mercy on us. While it is most distressing to see these high profile Christians (so-called) fall. It is even more annoying to read comments from other Christians acting holier than thou and acting like they don’t fall every day too. I’m not talking about Protestia (it’s good that they are reporting this news) I’m talking about the keyboard warriors at home acting as though they’ve never sinned before.

    1. Well said John, we are all sinners, men can be vulnerable too believe it or not, my goodness we all have needs and it sounds it been blown out of proportion, Sye is a good man, gave his career up nursed his mum till the end, he needs a break

  3. Unfortunate, but good on him for stepping down, apologizing, and putting him under the care of his elders.

  4. Lol I for one am fuckin glad
    Sue ten has been spouting the same word salad bullshit and dressing it up in fancy philosophical language for ages
    Had 1 or 2 interactions with the idiot personally and he literally refuses to admit fault and jumps to ad hoc when you point out a flaw in his arguments
