#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?

Is the American Bible Society a positive influence in the distribution of the Bible? How do the Jesuits aim to attack Protestant Churches?

 

#170 Is Pope Francis a Good Christian?

Paul responds to Pastor Robert Jeffress’ comments about Pope Francis. Jeffress said: “I have great respect for Pope Francis. He is a humble Christ-follower. We all can learn from him.” Is he correct? What does the Bible say about Rome? Is Pope Francis preaching and teaching Biblical Christianity? Does he preach the true gospel? What is the moral character of Pope Francis? How important is the fact that he is part of the notorious Jesuits started by Ignatius Loyola?

#160 Modern Church Apostasy on Roman Catholicism and Homosexuality
