Benny Hinn is the poster child for the shyster, false prosperity gospel. Who actually gives money to these people (Hinn, Osteen, Meyer, Copeland, Dollar, etc.)? Don’t the people who follow and support these crooks have ANY discernment?
I differ with Jeffress on several things including his constant push to involve the church in politics and patriotic nationalism, but he’s absolutely right about Jimmy Carter’s universalism heresy. Too bad Jeffress went soft on Catholicism (see here), a MUCH MORE dangerous influence than Jimmy Carter.
It’s very odd that several of assassin John Wilkes Booth’s co-conspirators were Roman Catholics, especially in that era. Some have claimed Jesuit involvement but no conclusive historical evidence has ever been found. To make such claims without historical proof is irresponsible. There’s already enough unimpeachable evidence to indict Roman Catholicism as an apostate church without resorting to conspiracy theories.
Roman Catholics like to present themselves as champions of religious freedom here in the United States, but in all other countries in which Catholics were in the majority and in league with the civil governments, the religious freedoms of non-Catholics were suppressed (to put it mildly), even into the 20th-century.
Catholic traditionalists continue to fight pope Francis’ assault on “infallible” doctrine. Yes, cardinal Muller, Francis did change the “infallible” doctrine of no communion for remarrieds albeit in a very devious and underhanded kind of way.
Catholicism quibbles over mountains of minutia such as which knee is the correct one to genuflect with before the “blessed sacrament,” but doesn’t teach its people to accept Jesus Christ as their Savior by faith alone.
It takes a year’s worth of indoctrination in the complicated ins and outs of the legalistic Catholic system before an adult can be baptized but the Gospel of salvation by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone is so simple even a child can understand it.
Francis is attempting to stack the deck before he bows out. He’s trying to change Catholicism to stanch the exodus referred to in the article below AND to solidify Rome’s leadership of worldwide ecumenism.
Catholic parishes are merging and closing all over the U.S. Over 1000 Catholic churches have closed in the U.S. since 1995 and the number grows monthly.
Catholics kiss all of these physical objects as acts of religious piety. In Catholicism, the focus is on the material rather than the spiritual and many of these practices were borrowed from paganism. We must accept Jesus Christ as our Savior by faith alone. All of these rituals and pious religious practices to try to gain favor with God and Mary are dust in the wind.
