A few nights ago I was thinking about all of the big name leaders in the evangelical church and how a great many are teaching that Roman Catholics are brethren. Many of their listeners have swallowed the lie, … hook, line, and sinker, … and those who are proclaiming the lie are escalating at a rapid pace.
Come out from among them brethren, for the modern day church in America is wading in muddy waters.
Ezekiel 34:18 Seemeth it a small thing unto you to have eaten up the good pasture, but ye must tread down with your feet the residue of your pastures? and to have drunk of the deep waters, but ye must foul the residue with your feet?
Ezekiel 34:19 And as for my flock, they eat that which ye have trodden with your feet; and they drink that which ye have fouled with your feet.
From 7515; muddled water:–that which . . . have fouled.

And as for my flock, they eat that which ye have trodden with your feet,…. They are forced to do it, not being able to come at any thing else; being as sheep without a shepherd, or worse:
and they drink that which ye have fouled with your feet; which, as it cannot be agreeable and relishing, so neither wholesome; as the leaven of the Scribes and Pharisees; the traditions of the elders; the false doctrines of false teachers, whose words eat as do a canker.
Proverbs 25:26 A righteous man falling down before the wicked is as a troubled fountain, and a corrupt spring.
