Ecclesiastes 10:1 Dead flies cause the ointment of the apothecary to send forth a stinking savour: so doth a little folly him that is in reputation for wisdom and honour.

In yesterday’s Sunday sermon a born again pastor told a story, and this is how he began…

“I was reading a story about a priest in the Philippines. A much loved man of God… he said that in his parish there was a woman who deeply loved God who claimed to have such a living relationship with God that God would give her visions at times.”

What’s wrong with that statement?

The Philippines has a large Roman Catholic population. The pastor didn’t actually say the words Roman Catholic priest, but because he spoke of a priest and a parish I’m sure everyone understood that’s what he meant. Should I be surprised? Every time I hear a pastor refer to Roman Catholicism as valid Christianity it’s like getting a fresh wound. We’ve been praying for pastors. Every pastor we’ve ever spoken to about ecumenism in the church wouldn’t listen to us. Only the Lord can open their eyes.

I left the following comment on their YouTube channel. Before I finished writing this post, my comment had already been deleted. I used the words “knock off” (as in imitation) in my comment, because he used those words to warn the congregation against believing something that’s spiritually fake. Right after that, he proceeded to tell the priest story. 🤦‍♀️

My comment…

“I speak in the Name of my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Roman Catholicism is a knock off of true Christianity. It’s fake. It will damn your soul. I’m praying that the Lord will open your eyes to this truth. 🙏 We need to evangelize Roman Catholics, including the priests etc., and educate born again believers about the false gospel of Roman Catholicism. Pastors don’t want to be found preaching error when they stand before the Lord. I say this in love. ♥️ I am sure that Jesus would not want you to delete this comment, because we are talking about the eternal destiny of souls. Ecumenism has taken over the church world. Dare to be a Daniel, Dare to stand alone. Speak the truth in love and bear His reproach outside the camp.”
