I recently viewed a video from James Robison’s Television show, which you can also view by clicking on this link here = 2011 video. On this one particular program, James Robison had a Roman Catholic priest on as his guest. I listened briefly as the priest “Father” Jonathan Morris explained to James Robison and his wife, how he had accepted Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Saviour, and that most Catholics just do not know how to explain their faith. I do not doubt the sincerity of Jonathan Morris, but the Jesus Christ that I learned about as a Roman Catholic, is not the Jesus Christ that saved my soul. “Father” Jonathan Morris preaches the false gospel of the Roman Catholic church, from which the Holy Spirit of truth set me free.
“Howbeit when he, the Spirit of truth, is come, he will guide you into all truth: for he shall not speak of himself; but whatsoever he shall hear, that shall he speak: and he will shew you things to come.” John 16:13
That same Holy Spirit of truth will NEVER call any Christian to join in UNITY, with any person, or group, that preaches a counterfeit gospel!
The Jesus Christ of the Bible also warned us about using the name Father:
“And call no man your father upon the earth: for one is your Father, which is in heaven.” Matthew 23:9
As a Roman Catholic priest “Father” Jonathan Morris believes that the “sacrifice of the Mass” satisfies the justice of God for sins committed against him. Those Catholic Masses are offered up every day throughout the world.
That one false teaching by itself qualifies Rome’s gospel as a counterfeit gospel. If the perfect and final sacrifice of Jesus Christ, did not satisfy the justice of God almost 2000 years ago, then there is no gospel at all. The apostle John saw the real Jesus Christ in all his glory, and he is described this way in the book of Revelation:
“And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire; And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters. And he had in his right hand seven stars: and out of his mouth went a sharp twoedged sword: and his countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength. And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as dead. And he laid his right hand upon me, saying unto me, Fear not; I am the first and the last: I am he that liveth, and WAS DEAD; and, behold, I AM ALIVE for evermore, Amen; and have the keys of HELL and of DEATH.” Revelation 1:13-18
Jesus Christ told John that he was dead, but now he is ALIVE for evermore. It is an absolute impossibility for Jesus Christ, the King of Kings, and Lord of Lords, to be brought down to Roman Catholic altars on a daily basis to be transubstantiated by their priests. The system of Rome, has the audacity to tell their people that their Roman Catholic Mass satisfies the justice of God for sins committed against him? How can a Roman Catholic priest hold that Eucharistic Host (wafer) in his hand every day and actually believe that?
The true gospel showed me that the real Jesus Christ paid for my sins in full on the cross, justified me with his blood, and reconciled me back to God! (Romans 5:6-10) The gospel that Mr Jonathan Morris preaches is not the gospel found in the scriptures, but it is a counterfeit gospel, that has the curse of God upon it:
“But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, If any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.” Galatians 1:8-10
Mr James Robison formerly stood against the Roman Catholic church, and I have heard him talk about a conversation that he had with Billy Graham regarding the Roman Catholics. In the video James Robison talked about how he “chewed out Billy Graham” because he had Roman Catholics at his meetings. You could hear the cackling and laughter from the people in the audience as Robison spoke.
At one point James Robison raised his hands and said “Oh God forgive me” because he formerly opposed the Roman Catholic church. James Robison made a very interesting statement when he said “I’ve said this many times, we don’t know him (God) as well as we should, because we refuse to know them (the Roman Catholics)” I want you to see here how Mr Robison linked the closeness of a Christian’s relationship with God, with getting to know the Roman Catholic people, who are sitting under the sound of a false gospel. I cannot find anything like that in my Bible. That is nothing but a clever deception. James Robison pleaded “Oh God forgive me” for opposing Rome in his public confession before a studio audience, and millions of television viewers also.
As a former Roman Catholic I do not ask for the Lord Jesus Christ to forgive me for warning people about the Roman Catholic system. I can say without apology,
“Oh God I thank you for opening my spiritual eyes, and for saving me out from the deception and wickedness, of the Roman Catholic system!”
Billy Graham is legendary in his compromise with the false system of Rome. He bought the rights to “Halley’s Bible Handbook” over 50 years ago, and then he removed all the warnings about the wickedness of the Roman Catholic church, from his Crusade edition!
In her well documented book entitled “Billy Graham And His Friends” Dr Cathy Burns wrote the following concerning the well known Evangelist, Billy Graham:
“Not only does Graham not attack the falseness in the Catholic Church, but he even protects the wrong. For instance . . . around 1961, Billy Graham bought the rights to Halley’s Pocket Bible Handbook. The original Halley’s up until the 22nd Edition (1959), warned about the Jesuits. There are chapters about the Roman Papacy, and the Jesuits. According to Mrs Halley, Mr Halley spent years working on those chapters and never would have permitted the book to be changed. However when he died, Billy Graham bought the rights, and REMOVED all the research and warning about the Jesuits in the editions Billy Graham printed.” [Billy Graham and His Friends, 2001, by Cathy Burns published by Sharing]
Was the Billy Graham organization working with the Roman Catholics all the way back in the early 1960’s? It would make a lot of sense then, to remove all the warnings about the Roman Catholic church from that book! To this very day, the Billy Graham ministry sends the Roman Catholics who respond to the “decision” altar calls, back to their own Roman Catholic church!
Billy Graham went from calling the Roman Catholic church, one of the three gravest menaces faced by Christianity (in 1948), to using Roman Catholics as counselors and altar workers at his crusades. The other two “menaces” that Graham declared to be a danger to Christianity were Communism, and Mohammedanism. Billy Graham is a perfect example of how a person can be seduced by the doctrines of devils that the apostle Paul warned us about. (1 Timothy 4:1) The PBS series “God in America” spoke about Billy Graham also:
The newspaper magnate William Randolph Hearst (Hearst was a Roman Catholic), instructed his editors to “puff Graham” by covering his crusade favorably and often. Graham made banner headlines and soon landed on the cover of Time magazine. The popularity of his Los Angeles crusade and the positive media treatment propelled him into the American mainstream. [God In America / PBS]
Folks once a person gets into the mainstream anything can happen, and I believe this is where Billy Graham went off course big time. The editors of the worldly leader William Hearst told his editors to speak favorably of Billy Graham and the rest is history. It is unfortunate that the majority of well known television ministers have been “puffing Graham” for decades now, despite of his demonic compromise with the Roman Catholic system! Franklin Graham followed in his father’s footsteps, and has been working with Roman Catholics for decades now.
So James Robison had a talk with Billy Graham, a man who went totally off track with Rome, and he took his advice. Billy Graham convinced him to get to know the Roman Catholic people, and before you know it, James Robison was on board with the Catholic people. That is what is known as deception. Why? Because God’s Word still stands against the counterfeit gospel of Rome. James Robison made the spiritually fatal mistake, of following the words of a mere man (Billy Graham), while laying aside the word of God ! Not a good thing to do at all.
“To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.” Isaiah 8:20
James Robison listened to the counsel of a man (Billy Graham) who joined hands with a religious system, which the famous evangelist Leonard Ravenhill called “the greatest forgery Lucifer ever made.” It is not a difficult thing to discern, if you truly want to discern what took place there folks. James Robison endorsed the “doctrines of devils” which are found inside the Roman Catholic system, and he did it before millions of people on his television show.
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;” 1 Timothy 4:1
James Robison has endorsed the gospel of Roman Catholicism, which preaches a Jesus, which is different from the Jesus Christ of the scriptures. There are tons of other modern day ministers who have done the same thing that James Robison has done. Rick Warren (Purpose Driven Life) has referred to Pope Francis as “our Pope,” to the delight of millions of Roman Catholics, all over the world. Kenneth Copeland, John Arnott (“Toronto Blessing”) and many other well known ministers have gone down the road to Rome in high gear also. They have ignored the warning from the apostle Paul who said this.
“For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to CHRIST. But I fear, lest by any means, as the SERPENT beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be CORRUPTED from the simplicity that is in CHRIST. For if he that cometh PREACHETH ANOTHER JESUS, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive ANOTHER SPIRIT, which ye have not received, or ANOTHER GOSPEL, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.” 2 Corinthians 11:2-4
The Jewish apostle Paul was very concerned that the followers of Jesus Christ might be beguiled (deceived) by the same Devil that deceived Eve, in the garden of Eden. That Devil twisted the word of God, and convinced Eve, that she could disobey God. Paul specifically mentioned “another Jesus” and “another spirit” and “another gospel” in his warning to the Christian church. The counterfeit gospel of Rome fits that description perfectly.
During the heyday of the Catholic “Charismatic movement” many people were swept away by ministers such as Kathryn Kuhlman and her “healing” ministry. Kathryn Kuhlman totally endorsed that movement, and she even had a private audience with Pope Paul VI. Some reports suggested that 60 percent of her followers were Roman Catholic! Billy Graham also had a private audience with Pope John Paul II, and that Pope grabbed Billy Graham by the lapels of his shirt one day, and told him “we are brothers Graham.” That is the same Pope John Paul II, who referred to the Bible believing Evangelical Christians in Brazil as “rapacious wolves,” because of their evangelism to the Roman Catholics down there!
As I have said many times over, I am a former Roman Catholic who was delivered out from the wicked system of Roman Catholicism in the year 1989. That same religious system still prays for the Roman Catholic people who have died, and offer up Catholic Masses on their behalf. The amount of money spent on those Catholic Masses in the form of a donation, has to be in the billions of dollars, and yet you will rarely hear an Evangelical preacher warn their congregations about it. You can walk into any Funeral Parlour throughout the world, and if there is Catholic laid out in a casket, you will find a Mass Card holder close by to hold all of the “Mass Cards” brought there by friends and relatives. That is called deception, and it is a spiritual deception of the worst kind. Those poor souls have been deprived of the simple and plain gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ, and they are hoping that their “loved ones” can escape the fires of purgatory, without staying there for too long. That is all part of the Roman Catholic gospel. That is the gospel that “Father” Jonathan Morris believes in, and if he did not believe that, then he would no longer be a Roman Catholic. If a person does not believe that the Catholic Mass can be offered for both the living and the dead, then they would be under one or more of the anathemas (curses) instituted at the Council of Trent.
Recently Pope Francis has been talking about the “Year of Jubilee” and the opening up of the “Jubilee Door,” which is nothing more than another superstitious practice of the Roman Catholic church. I did not, and do not need a Jubilee Door to be opened for me, because I came in through the only door that God recognizes, and that is his Son Jesus Christ. That door is not opened once every 50 years, but is has been open 24/7 for just about 2000 years now. Enter in my sinner friend, no matter what your sin might be! Come on in, and do not delay, because you are not promised that you will be alive tomorrow!
“Then said Jesus unto them again, Verily, verily, I say unto you, I am the door of the sheep. All that ever came before me are thieves and robbers: but the sheep did not hear them. I am the door: by me if any man enter in, he shall be saved, and shall go in and out, and find pasture. The thief cometh not, but for to steal, and to kill, and to destroy: I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly. I am the good shepherd: the good shepherd giveth his life for the sheep.” John 10:7-11
“(For he saith, I have heard thee in a time accepted, and in the day of salvation have I succoured thee: behold, now is the accepted time; behold, now is the day of salvation.)” 2 Corinthians 6:2
Jesus Christ told us in the scriptures that those who enter in shall be saved! I entered in, and I was saved just like the real Jesus Christ told me. Jesus is the only shepherd that I need, and he is the only shepherd that you need. If you are a Roman Catholic and you still believe that the priest has the power to change a piece of bread into the body and blood of Jesus Christ, then you serve a counterfeit Jesus Christ. The real Jesus Christ conquered sin and death on the cross, and then he rose again from the dead, never to be sacrificed again. You can get saved through simple faith in Jesus Christ when you understand that you are ungodly and that Christ died for you! You will be justified and saved from the wrath of God, because that is what the scriptures tell us!
“For when we were yet without strength, in due time Christ died for the ungodly. For scarcely for a righteous man will one die: yet peradventure for a good man some would even dare to die. But God commendeth his love toward us, in that, while we were yet sinners, Christ died for us. Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. For if, when we were enemies, we were reconciled to God by the death of his Son, much more, being reconciled, we shall be saved by his life.” Romans 5:6-10
There is no need to go through “Mother Mary” or “Mother Church” to get to Jesus Christ, as the “Mother of Harlots” would like you to think. Just call upon the Lord for mercy and forgiveness, and take him at his word! The true Christians knew that truth, and that is why they stood against the Church of Rome, and Rome went ballistic against them. Why? Because they were not serving the true and living God at all. The were still children of the Devil, and that spirit drove them to persecute the true children of God. The true Christians stood against Rome in the Middle ages, and the church of Rome tortured, and murdered them by the millions, over a period of 500 years. That should tell you something about the “spirit” that drives that man-made religious system! Any person who truly desires salvation in Christ can be justified by his blood when they turn to him. The church of Rome would like to have people think that they alone, possess the power of forgiveness, by offering up Masses, and by absolving the Catholic people in the confessional booth.
It has been just about twenty-six years now since I was born again of the Spirit, and I have watched as the modern day Evangelical church has been seduced by the Roman Catholic church. All of the “big name” television ministries such as TBN (Trinity Broadcasting Network) and CBN (700 Club), work hand in hand with the Roman Catholic people, but the Catholic teachings have never changed from the time of the Inquisition, when they murdered millions.
Do not be surprised if you see the Roman Catholic Pope propose a grand unity between Rome and Evangelicals on October 31, 2017 the 500th anniversary of Martin Luther’s nailing of the 95 Theses to the door of Wittenberg, Germany.
The Ninety-Five Theses question the Catholic Church’s practice of selling indulgences and view skeptically the notion that a papal pardon rather than penance or genuine contrition can achieve forgiveness of sins. Luther argued that Christians were being falsely told that they could obtain absolution for souls in purgatory by buying indulgences. [Wikipedia]
Fasten your seat belts folks, for as the song goes, “you ain’t seen nothing yet”
