Rome and Her Devices
Another Hollow Critique of Romanism by Lighthouse Trails  As the great deception accelerates and increasing numbers of professing  Christians turn to the false gospel of Rome, it is vital that true believers  understand how this 'falling away' is being engineered. The latest tract  from Lighthouse Trails  one of the better-known discernment ministries   deals with the life of the Catholic mystic, Teresa of Avila. However, it  does so in such a shallow and misleading manner that it cannot be  considered an Evangelical tract in any meaningful sense and should be  withdrawn. [Posted 24/05/2017] The Pope’s Worldwide Network of Supernatural Doors  On 8 December 2015 Pope Francis opened a door in St Peter’s Basilica in  the Vatican in a special public ceremony. According to the Pope, as  stated in a Papal Bull, any Catholic who passed through this door over  the following 12 months would receive a divine pardon in respect of some of his or her sins. He also authorised the temporary creation of 2800 or  more similar doors throughout the world. The door in the Vatican was  later officially sealed by him on 20 November 2016. Bible-believing  Christians need to understand why this is happening and why occult acts  of this nature are adding greatly to the End Time darkness. [Posted 31/01/2017] The Alpha Course, Ecumenism, and Romanism One of the best ways to suppress the gospel is to teach a false one. This  has several advantages: It gets naive people to co-operate in its  suppression; it meets with little resistance; and it creates large numbers  of false converts. The latter is especially troubling since someone who  falsely believes he is saved is much less likely to hear the true gospel  message when it is preached. The Alpha Course is one of the most  subversive programs in the evangelical church today. Its overriding  purpose is to bring Roman Catholics and Evangelicals closer together,  with a view to creating a single worldwide Christian institution. It is  Ecumenism, Romanism, and the false gospel, all rolled together into one  program. No Bible-believing church should have anything to do with it.  [Posted 01/11/2016] The Dangers of Lectio Divina and Contemplative Prayer In 2005 the Pope (Benedict XVI) said the Catholic Church would  continue to promote lectio divina, both in the traditional way and  "through the use of new methods, carefully thought through and in step  with the times." This ancient monastic technique is being marketed as a  way both to study the Bible and to enter into the presence of God. In  reality it is part of the carefully managed ecumenical agenda. The new  world religion will draw heavily on mysticism, meditation  (contemplation), and similar pagan practices to lure potential victims  into its net. This paper explains the thinking behind this worldwide  campaign, including the role played by the well-known book, Celebration of Discipline by Richard Foster. [Posted 15/10/2015]  Lighthouse Trails is providing a platform for Roman theology A discernment website that normally follows a clear Biblical line has just  published a tract which is not fit for purpose. Since the subject is such a  serious one – the deadly heresy of goddess worship in the Catholic  church – we are taking the unusual step of asking that they withdraw the tract.  [Posted 09/02/2015] The Church of Rome Condemns All Born-again Christians Few born-again Christians seem to be aware that they are under formal  condemnation by Rome. The anathemas of the Council of Trent still  apply to them. This means they could be subject at some future date to a  punishment specified under Canon 1311 of the Roman Catholic Code of  Canon Law. So, while millions of professing Christians are moving closer  to Rome under the banner of Ecumenism, the jaws of a false religion are  opening wide to receive them.  [Posted 30/09/2014] John MacArthur is Marching in Step with Rome  John MacArthur is one of the best known Bible teachers in the world  today. His books have sold in the millions and his views are highly  influential. However, in his book, The Slave, which was published in  2010, he revealed a side to his theology that is deeply disturbing. This  paper examines the strange new gospel that Dr MacArthur propounds  with great vigor in his book and shows just how sharply it conflicts with  Scripture. It also reveals the extent to which his eccentric theology  accords with the Ecumenical agenda that Rome is forcefully pursuing.  Our analysis demonstrates that The Slave is a dangerous book with a  false gospel message that will lead the unwary away from Christ and  toward the coming One World Religion. [Posted 20/09/2014] Satan in Satin: Apparitions of Mary are Demonic Deceptions A One World religion needs a focal doctrine on which people of all  religions can agree. It also needs a series of supernatural signs to  demonstrate that this universally accepted doctrine is approved by God.  The Marian apparitions fulfil both requirements. They are gradually  preparing the ground for a declaration by Rome that Mary is a Co-   Redemptrix, a female saviour of mankind. This paper reveals the awful  implications of this deception, the cunning way it is being implemented,  and why all true Christians need to understand it thoroughly.  [Posted 04/09/2013] The Walk to Emmaus - Yet Another Ecumenical Trap  Many born-again Christians are being tricked into attending a so-called  Christian weekend retreat known as 'The Walk to Emmaus'. This event  and its follow-up program is actually part of the ecumenical agenda of  the Roman Catholic church. It is designed to teach a Roman Catholic  version of 'christianity' to Bible-believing Christians. Unfortunately  discernment among the latter is such that this deception is bearing  results. This paper exposes the real nature of this tightly controlled  event, the secretive culture that surrounds it, and the cult-like techniques that it uses to program participants. [Posted 05/04/2013] Christianity Today is a Mouthpiece for the Catholic Church Christianity Today, published in the US, is one of the most popular  Christian magazines in the world. It is supposed to be Evangelical and  professes to advocate true Biblical Christianity, but the facts show  otherwise. This report reveals how, issue after issue, for over 20 years,  the magazine has sought to undermine the work of the Reformation and  lure Evangelicals back into the Roman fold. It is shamelessly Ecumenical  and endorses a wide range of apostate New Age teachers, preachers and  charlatans. If you have doubts about the covert strategy that Rome is  using to undermine and destroy true Biblical Christianity, then read this  report.  [Posted 25/10/2012] The Apostles' Creed - A Dangerous Ecumenical Deception The traditional prayer known as the Apostles' Creed is a very loose  profession of Christian faith. The Ecumenical Movement is exploiting  this looseness and ambiguity to produce a short state-ment of basic  Christian doctrine which can be adopted by virtually any Christian  denomination. Their goal is to establish a global 'Christian' church with  the Pope at its head. However, born-again Christians need to realize that  this is a dreadful deception and that, despite its antiquity and seeming  simplicity, the Apostles' Creed is doctrinally unreliable. [Posted 10/04/2012] An Explosive Document by the Roman Catholic Church Ecumenism is promoted heavily by the Vatican as a means of attracting  Protestants and other branches of Christianity into the Roman Catholic  fold. In order to do this successfully, she must project a kindly, non-   threatening persona. However, one occasion-ally comes across a  document which reveals the real face behind the mask. And this is such a  document, a truly jaw-dropping summary of what Rome really believes  and what she really wants to achieve. Born-again Christians everywhere  are invited to study this document carefully and come to a clear  understanding of the awful threat that Ecumenism poses to true Bible-   based Christianity. [Posted 18/11/2011] Why Ecumenism is Dangerous for Born-again Christians  From time to time we come across an article which "hits the nail on the  head." The attached sermon by Martyn Lloyd-Jones, the famous English  evangelist, is one such article. In it he tries to alert born-again Christians  to the dangers of ecumenism. He shows how the Roman Catholic Church  is so heavily infected with apostasy that any attempt to compromise with  its doctrines will do untold damage to Bible-based Protestantism. A  stirring paper.   [Posted 2009] The Dangers of Marian Worship  Few Catholics today are aware of the dangers posed by Marian worship  or veneration of the Virgin Mary. This study explores these dangers and  why they exist. If you are a Catholic and believe these dangers are  exaggerated, then read this study. It explains the true nature of Marian  worship and why we are obliged by scripture to avoid it. The study also  explores why Jesus said that, on the day of judgement, he would reject  many self-professed Christians. Who exactly was he referring to and why  would he reject them? If these issues concern you, then read this paper.     [Posted 2009]
