#203 Neo-Evangelicals Join with Pope Francis: Mike Bickle, Apostate Protestants and Together 2016

Mike Bickle recently met with Pope Francis and treated the pope as a believer in Christ. What does this tell us about Charismatic discernment? Also a group of so-called “Calvinist” Churches met with the pope in an ecumenical gathering. However there is more bad news as many well known Evangelicals are joining together with Pope Francis at Together 2016, which is a event organised by Nick Hall for July 16th at the National Mall, Washington DC. At the event Francis will deliver a video message. Why are Ravi Zacharias, Francis Chan, Nabeel Qureshi, Ronnie Floyd, Hillsong United and many others all supporting an event which blurs the distinction between Rome’s false gospel and the true gospel of grace?

 

#198 Hillsong’s Strange Fire and Poisonous Satanic Fruit

Hillsong’s overt apostasy continues from the ‘Sleazy Silent Night’ performance at Christmas by Hillsong London, to the promotion of sex pervert Austin Powers at a recent women’s conference. Also a dancing naked cowboy appeared at Hillsong NY recently and Hillsong London put on a reenactment of a type of voodoo ritual last Easter. Where have Hillsong gone wrong? What can the Church learn from Hillsong’s rapid decline?

#166 Does Michael L. Brown Have Spiritual Discernment?

Michael L. Brown is a very popular Charismatic apologist who often defends Biblical truth on national television. Does Dr. Brown however see and call out the abuses of the Charismatic movement? What does he believe about Benny Hinn and Hillsong? Does he demonstrate the discernment expected of a Christian leader? How does he react to Christian preachers who warn about the Charismatic movement? Is the alter call Biblical and what are the potential dangers of the practice? These and other related issues are discussed on this week’s show.

“For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe. But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.”
–Hebrews 5:13-14

“The fact that Brown has a kind of fan base among Reformed Baptists troubles me, but it doesn’t sway my opinion of him. To exempt him from normal levels of doctrinal scrutiny or show him extreme deference just because he is a useful ally in the culture war is not wise.”
–Phil Johnson

#160 Modern Church Apostasy on Roman Catholicism and Homosexuality

Darlene Zschech of Hillsong music joined to worship with Pope Francis. What does this say of her stance on Biblical truth? What is the current state of the church today? Kevin DeYoung’s article ’40 Questions for Christians Now Waving Rainbow Flags’ is also looked at in this week’s show, along with some professing Christian responses and objections to the article.
