Nothing makes me angrier than some self-appointed Holy Ghost who glories in the circumcision of others, who make it a ministry in discouraging people. Sometimes I think it's true what they say, yes, Neanderthals did survive into modern times.
I will second that!

Point this man to

Romans 14:1-10 Him that is weak in the faith receive ye, but not to doubtful disputations. For one believeth that he may eat all things: another, who is weak, eateth herbs. Let not him that eateth despise him that eateth not; and let not him which eateth not judge him that eateth: for God hath received him. Who art thou that judgest another man's servant? to his own master he standeth or falleth. Yea, he shall be holden up: for God is able to make him stand. One man esteemeth one day above another: another esteemeth every day alike. Let every man be fully persuaded in his own mind. He that regardeth the day, regardeth it unto the Lord; and he that regardeth not the day, to the Lord he doth not regard it. He that eateth, eateth to the Lord, for he giveth God thanks; and he that eateth not, to the Lord he eateth not, and giveth God thanks. For none of us liveth to himself, and no man dieth to himself. For whether we live, we live unto the Lord; and whether we die, we die unto the Lord: whether we live therefore, or die, we are the Lord's. For to this end Christ both died, and rose, and revived, that he might be Lord both of the dead and living. But why dost thou judge thy brother? or why dost thou set at nought thy brother? for we shall all stand before the judgment seat of Christ.

One of the prominent jobs within the body of Christ asides from preaching to the lost, is the edification of the brethren, when a man may struggle with faith, and EVERY man will, the brethren, his brothers are to encourage through Gods words, NOT discourage through scripture wrongly divided. I agree with Bro Tony that this man has made himself the Holy Ghost. When Paul wrote to Timothy he gave him some good advice regarding those that would ask him questions out of context, from the law, Jewish fables and anything that was not true or unprofitable

1 Timothy 1:4 Neither give heed to fables and endless genealogies, which minister questions, rather than godly edifying which is in faith: so do.

Luke 9:62 And Jesus said unto him, No man, having put his hand to the plough, and looking back, is fit for the kingdom of God.

Brother if a man goes into service for the Lord (Preaching as an example)
and that man of course who at first will be born again, backslides (God forbid) that having started as a preacher feels he can no longer fulfill the role, because of desires in the world or weakened flesh or any "appearance of evil" there may be in his life that causes doubt to be cast on his "ability" to be a preacher, NOT that he was never saved in the first place or will lose his salvation, It means that he it not FIT for service in the role of a Pastor / Teacher / evangelist.

Don't be discouraged by any man that cant (or wont) put scripture in context or rightly divide. But at the same time Brother realise that when we get saved, the world looks at us in our every move to see how we live, act and behave in the world, and even more so when a position of Pastor / Teacher / evangelist is taken up, for then not only are the world watching, but so are our Brethren, and sadly many are like your friend here who will try and cut you down and discourage as Brother Bones stated....Hold fast

Colossians 3:24 Knowing that of the Lord ye shall receive the reward of the inheritance: for ye serve the Lord Christ.
