The Roman Catholic Pope Francis (real name Jorge Bergolglio) has been pushing for “Christian Unity” for some time now, and on the surface it appears to be a wonderful thing, but I caution you not to become ensnared by it at all. As an ex-Roman Catholic I have been warning fellow Christians about Rome’s call for a so called “Christian Unity” for some time now, but it usually falls upon deaf ears. A recent article written by Thomas D. Williams, reveals that the Pope holds the Devil responsible for the division among Christians, and here is an excerpt from that article. You can click on the image to enlarge it, and read it for yourself.
With those words of Pope Francis in mind, I ask you to read the words of the late Leonard Ravenhill regarding the Roman Catholic church.
“Evangelists today are wide-eyed to the might of Communism, but tight lipped at the menace of Romanism. America would shake from coast to coast in twenty-four hours if some preacher, anointed with the Holy Ghost, gave the Roman Catholic Church a broadside! We stir national interest against the cruel, half-civilized Mau Mau (wicked enough), but powwow with, and pander to, the Roman Catholic Church! These priests who dope mens souls, these idolatrous “masses,” these Calvary eclipsing prayers to Mary, these miserable millions cheated in life and in death by the greatest forgery Lucifer ever made.” (Why Revival Tarries by Leonard Ravenhill, Bethany House Publishers, 1988, Copyright 1959)
So on the one hand we have the current Roman Catholic Pope Francis calling for Christian unity, and telling us that it is the Devil who seeks to divide Christians, and then we have the late Leonard Ravenhill telling us that the Roman Catholic church is the greatest forgery Lucifer ever made. Who are we to believe? I am in full agreement with the late preacher Leonard Ravenhill because he hit the nail right on the head, and the scriptures back him up. The Roman Catholic church is a system of blatant idolatry, and their teaching of their Catholic Mass would be enough to make it a false gospel. It is beyond incredible that the Pope would call for unity with true Bible believing Christians, while they teach that their Roman Catholic Mass satisfies the justice of God, for sins committed against him. Add to that their unbiblical priesthood, along with the over 100 Roman Catholic anathemas (curses) against people who DISAGREE with their FALSE teachings, including that of their Catholic Mass. Those Roman Catholic curses by the way can be found in the Council of Trent, and they were upheld by the Council of Vatican II.
“How on earth can the Roman Catholic Pope Francis ask true Christians to come in UNITY with the church of Rome, when the system he leads pronounces over 100 curses against those who disagree with Rome’s false teachings? That is what is known as SPIRITUAL INSANITY!”
“It is the DEVIL who is working through Pope Francis, and it is the DEVIL who is seeking to SEDUCE the TRUE CHRISTIANS into joining hands with the Roman Catholic church which preaches a FALSE Gospel!”
I find it to be absolutely incredible that Jorge Bergoglio (Pope Francis) would have the utter gall to preach such religious nonsense. The Pope is telling people that the Devil is responsible for divisions, when he is clearly operating under the anointing of the Devil himself. Any TRUE CHRISTIAN who has ever read Foxe’s Book of Martyrs already knows the truth about the Roman Catholic church. The modern day organized church is absolutely chock full of hired hands, and puppets, who refuse to say a word about the FALSE gospel of Rome.
There can be no FULL UNITY with a system that preaches a FALSE GOSPEL according to the scriptures found in my Bible:
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)
The gospel of the Roman Catholic church is clearly a FALSE gospel, and the Pope is the man who would be ultimately responsible for allowing that FALSE gospel to be preached. According to the scriptures which are found in the Bible, Pope Francis and ALL who preach that FALSE gospel would be under a true BIBLICAL curse, unlike the man-made curses that Rome pronounces upon those who disagree with her false teachings! Millions have been DECEIVED in these last days as major “Christian Leaders” such as Billy Graham, Franklin Graham, Luis Palau, Joel Osteen (Book: Your Best Life Now), Kenneth Copeland, John Arnott (Toronto Blessing), James Robison, Beth Moore, Pat Robertson (700 Club), Paul Crouch (deceased), TBN Network, and “tons” of others who bend their knee toward Rome.
The modern day pulpits are filled with so many preachers who can double-talk, sugarcoat and smooth-talk their way with their congregations without EVER warning them, that they deserve an award for such skills. It seems as if they are running a BUSINESS and NOT a church! Oh, that there were more preachers, and TRUE men of God, such as the late Christian preacher, and musician Keith Green, who hit a “bullseye”, when he wrote “The Catholic Chronicles” and exposed the false teachings of Rome in no uncertain terms.
“It is obvious by even this brief glimpse into the doctrines of mortal and venial sins, confession, penance, and purgatory, that the Roman Catholic Church has constructed one of the most unbiblical doctrinal systems that has ever been considered “Christian”. The fear, anguish, and religious bondage that such a system of “reward and punishment” creates, has tormented millions of lives for centuries, and continues to prey on those who are ignorant of the biblical way of salvation.
To merely call such a system “a cult”, would be to throw it into the vast category of religions and quasi-religions that are currently making the rounds of our college campuses and city streets, snatching up many an unsuspecting youth. No, the Roman Church is not a cult. It’s an empire!
With its own ruler, its own laws, and its own subjects! The empire has no borders, it encompasses the globe with its eye on every person who does not vow allegiance. It calls the members of other faiths “separated brethren” (The term used by Vatican II to describe the members of Eastern Orthodox, Anglican, and Protestant churches.) and has as its goal the eventual bringing together of everyone under its flag.
I know that many will not be convinced or moved by this article (or any of the others) to make such a conclusion. They are impressed by what they’ve heard about recent stirrings among the Catholics in the “charismatic renewal”. Many evangelicals (especially Charismatics) have been thrilled by the reports of Catholics speaking in tongues, dancing in the Spirit, having nights of joy and praise, even attending “charismatic masses”.
Mouths that used to speak out boldly against the Church of Rome have been quieted by the times. It no longer is in vogue to speak of the pope as “the antichrist” (Although the following people unhesitatingly did: Martin Luther, John Bunyan, John Huss, John Wycliffe, John Calvin, William Tyndale, John Knox, Thomas Bacon, John Wesley, Samuel Cooper, John Cotton, and Jonathan Edwards.) or the Catholic Church as the “whore of Babylon”. Now Protestants unwittingly believe that “our differences are not so great”. Ah, that is just what She needs us to think!
I’ve never completely understood why God led me to write these articles. But it becomes more clear with each day of study, and each page of research. Never has something so black and wicked, gotten away with appearing so holy and mysteriously beautiful . . . for so long! (Keith Green-The Catholic Chronicles)”
