#173 New Evangelicalism Supporting Antichrist Papacy

New Evangelical publication ‘Christianity Today’ has claimed that Pope Francis is making the Catholic Church more Protestant; is this true? Pope Francis is promoting prayer and Bible reading, but what kind of prayer and what translation of the scriptures? How should we view this pope? Is he our ‘brother in Christ’ as now many professing evangelicals believe, or is he the Antichrist as many reformers believed? Is the American Bible Society a positive influence in the distribution of the Bible? How do the Jesuits aim to attack Protestant Churches?

 

#139 The End Times Strong Delusion

“And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” –2 Thessalonians 2:11

What is the ‘strong delusion’ spoken about in 2 Thessalonians Chapter 2? What will deceive the people spoken about in the passage? Are the Alien Deception theories plausible as so many today claim? What is the Biblical way of interpreting scripture?

#138 When the Bishop of Rome became the Antichrist

When did ‘the man of sin’ appear? How did the Papacy develop? What impact does futurism and preterism have on the Church? How is dispensationalism faulty? What did Gregory I (Gregory the Great) have to say about the Antichrist and the title of ‘Universal Bishop’? When did the papacy begin?


#137 Antichrist Identified and Revealed from Scripture

Is it possible to know who the true Antichrist is from the Bible or can we only speculate on who the man of sin is? What has been the consistent testimony from the early church to about 200 years ago? Is the Pope of Rome that man of sin and son of perdition, or is it some man to come in the future?

“There is no other head of the Church but the Lord Jesus Christ. Nor can the Pope of Rome, in any sense, be head thereof; but is that Antichrist, that man of sin, and son of perdition, that exalts himself, in the Church, against Christ and all that is called God.”
-The Westminster Confession of Faith, Chapter 25:6

#119 Rick Warren on EWTN Supporting Antichrist Rome

Rick Warren was interviewed recently on the Roman Catholic TV Network EWTN. Did he defend Biblical truth? Did he call those within Rome’s walls to repentance or did he join hands once again with a false religion?

“For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”
–Revelation 18:3-5
