I will not dwell further on his asinine post, but I would like to focus upon his most recent reply to a poster called Staub1212.(comment dated 14 March 2009 12:44AM)
The following is an abstract of the conversation:
Staub1212: Daniel, your proclamation of who is going to hell and who is condemned is frightening.
Watchman Chew: Really? Do you believe that non-Christians are going to hell if they continue to reject Christ? If so, then I think you should have a good look in the mirror. Your proclamation of who is going to hell (non-believers) and who is condemned (non-believers) is frightening.
Watchman Chew here makes a deliberate logical fallacy – a false analogy.
Staub1212 commented on Chew's perennial efforts in calling down fire and brimstone upon PROFESSING CHRISTIANS. Chew appointed himself as watchman, and then goes around judging who is saved and who is unsaved.
Here Chew attempted to retort Staub1212 by making a “judgment” analogy with PROFESSING UNBELIEVERS.
If someone claims that one is a Christian, WHO ARE YOU DANIEL CHEW HUICONG TO CALL THEM REPROBATES OR UNSAVED? You may suspect a person to be a false believer, but how dare you pronounce judgment upon a fellow brother or sister in Christ, calling down eternal damnation and reprobation upon this person?
Are you thinking that you are God?
On the other hand, unbelievers do profess themselves as non-Christians, and it is rational and reasonable to judge that these unbelievers are – unbelievers. At least for now, these are unbelievers, and that is what they claim to be.
But the most exciting comment from Daniel has yet to be displayed.
Perusing the conversation between Staub1212 and Watchman Chew a little further:
Staub1212: Be careful Daniel about how you "appoint yourself" as one to watch the watchmen
Watchman Chew: I do not appoint myself. God is the only one who appoints a person. If you have a problem with that, find God.
This is it! Do we need anymore evidence that Chew is probably mentally ill? Chew, plainly and clearly, makes the following proposition:
“I do not appoint myself. God is the only one who appoints a person. If you have a problem with that, find God.”
Chew claims the following:
1.He did not appoint himself as Watchman;
2. God did; and
3. “If you have a problem with that, find God,” which can be interpreted as, “If you do not believe that, then look for God and ask Him.”
Chew appointed himself as Watchman Chew. Then he turns around and claims that God had appointed him!
Logically speaking, this is called a bare assertion (which is a logical fallacy. Period.). Anyone in the mortuary or the mental hospital can claim that God “appointed” him as whatever (e.g. Pope, Watchman, Archangel Michael etc).
However, according to shrinks, this is clinically called visual and/or auditory hallucinations which occur in patients with mental problems like schizophrenia or paranoid delusion. It seldom occurs in patients with Asperger syndrome, but it is not considered very rare, especially if one is on medications.
Questions for Watchman Chew-The-Appointed-One
Watchman Daniel Chew Huicong, for Pete's sake, if God appointed you, was your Pastor Paul Goh there to witness your ordination as Watchman?
Were photographs taken with, say, a graduation gown-like thingy and a fatuous smile?
Did God appear on those photographs?
Most importantly, is Pastor Paul Goh and the elders from CERC under your spiritual "watching" as well?
Hear ye, hear ye, Watchman-Apostle-Pope Daniel Chew Huicong claims that God came down to earth, and anointed him as grand master Watchman!
“This is my beloved Watchman; with him I am well pleased. Listen to him.”

PS: Dear Daniel, this is my last question for today, "What medicine are you on?"
