TV Celeb Preachers Fawn Over Meeting with Pope

Remember the shock and awe a few months ago when Pope Francis told Word of Faith pastor Kenneth Copeland that Catholics and Charismatics must spiritually unite?  (Here is the video to refresh your memory:)

Yes, we continue to gallop toward a one-world melding of religions, and the ramifications are staggering.Recently more celeb pastors, a Mormon senator and even inspirational speaker Joel Osteen got an audience with the Pope.

Today, this via Christian News Network:

ROME – Two controversial TV preachers recently met Pope Francis in an effort to work toward tearing down the ‘walls of division’ between Catholics and Protestants.

Kenneth Copeland and James Robison are two religious leaders in northeast Texas known for drawing huge crowds to their services and events, and who were a part of leading the group identifying as a “delegation of Evangelical Christian leaders” in its meeting with the Roman Catholic pontiff late last month.

Copeland heads Kenneth Copeland Ministries and Eagle Mountain International Church, while Robison is an “apostolic elder” at Gateway Church and co-hosts the Life Today TV program…

    What's wrong with these people? Bergoglio is just an old man needing salvation like anyone else.


  2. oh no. A Catholic and a Prostestant being kind to one another. What will the world come to? {sarcasm} PS =We "fundamentalist" or whatever Christians need to stop tearing each other down.

      Here is what the Pope really thinks, but is not saying outright to these silly misguided undiscerning evangelicals:

      Right out of Catholic documents:

      "There is but one universal Church of the faithful, outside of which no one at all can be saved" (Pope Innocent III, Fourth Lateran Council, 1215.)

      "We declare, say, define, and pronounce that it is absolutely necessary for the salvation of every human creature to be subject to the Roman Pontiff" (Pope Boniface VIII, the Bull Unam Sanctam, 1302.)

      "[The Holy Roman Church] firmly believes, professes and teaches that none of those who are not within the Catholic Church, not only Pagans, but Jews, heretics and schismatics, can ever be partakers of eternal life, but are to go into the eternal fire 'prepared for the devil, and his angels' (Mt. xxv. 41), unless before the close of their lives they shall have entered into that Church; also that the unity of the Ecclesiastical body is such that the Church's Sacraments avail only those abiding in that Church, and that fasts, almsdeeds, and other works of piety which play their part in the Christian combat are in her alone productive of eternal rewards; moreover, that no one, no matter what alms he may have given, not even if he were to shed his blood for Christ's sake, can be saved unless he abide in the bosom and unity of the Catholic Church." (Mansi, Concilia, xxxi, 1739.) (Pope Eugene IV, The Bull Cantate Domino, 1441).

      Do you still feel like uniting with the Catholic Church? Can you really find common ground with a man made religious system which is totally contrary to what the Word of God teaches and which lays heavy burdens on people which Christ never intended for His church.' Being kind to another'…..that is not what the Pope is doing. He is deceiving these fools.


      • Linz says:

        The word Catholic means "Universal Church" of which everyone of us are partakers of if we believe in our heart that Jesus is Lord and has risen from the dead. Anyone outside of the church is condemned to hell according to scripture….

        With the definition of Catholic in mind we are all catholics and a pope that sees this and seeks to unify those who believe in Jesus is alright with me.


      • rosinavoz says:

        Yes, catholic (with a small c) does mean universal. It was used by the Romans to refer to the Christian church in the early days of the Christianity since Christians could be found anywhere throughout the Empire. The Roman Catholic Church claims to be the one true Church even though it does not teach Biblical salvation and is apostate in many of its teachings.

        I WAS a Roman Catholic, but I was NOT a Christian. I was trusting, just as I was taught by the Catholic Church, not in Christ alone for my salvation, but trusting in Christ PLUS the sacraments, prayers to Mary as 'Co-Redemprix' with Christ, prayers to various saints, indulgences, and my own good works. Now does that sound like Biblical Christianity to you? I am so glad I was delivered out of all of that. It was a life of constant striving, never knowing for sure if I would ever make it to heaven. My only hope was to make it to Purgatory when I died. Unrepentant mortal sins would send me straight to hell. But venial sins could to be paid for in a place of suffering called Purgatory. Then I would purified enough to go to heaven. Jesus' sacrifice on the cross was not enough to save me. Does that sound like Biblical Christianity? Where is Purgatory in the Bible? I am not misunderstanding what is taught by the Catholic Church. I went to Catholic schools all the way up through college. Never did we crack open a Bible. Not once.

        How do you unite with unbelievers? Just believing in Jesus does not make one a Christian. Many will call Jesus Lord on that Day and He will say 'Depart from me. I never knew you'. Salvation is through Christ ALONE. The Catholic Church is leading many to hell. When Christians don't understand what is wrong with Catholicism, that means Catholics will not be confronted with the true gospel. It is huge unreached people group. We need to become educated on what the Catholic Church really teaches. Did you not read in the post above that the Church teaches that one cannot be saved unless he is subject to the Roman Pontiff (Pope)? Is that teaching ok with you? I will not be subject to the Pope but to Christ alone.

        I hope you will take a few minutes to look at these resources:

    It is not a matter of 'being kind'. It is a matter of standing for biblical truth and not compromising the true meaning of the gospel. We cannot unite with apostate religions, such as the Catholic Church, which are not Christian at all…which teach another gospel and worship another Jesus. Get some discernment quickly or you will be led away by the deception of the one world church advocates and the anti-Christ who is soon to come on the scene. It is not time to 'get along'. It is time to proclaim the truth even when it seems unloving to do so. Stories like this one should be a warning that the Lord's return is near.
