CRI : Misleadingly ‘soft’ on Roman Catholicism

CHRISTIAN RESEARCH INSTITUTE: Misleadingly ‘soft’ on Roman Catholicism

CHRISTIAN RESEARCH INSTITUTE: Misleadingly ‘soft’ on Roman Catholicism

 [PDF]

In the early years after my conversion and, with a growing interest in ‘apologetics’, I soon became aware of the work of the Christian Research Institute and its ‘leading light’, its founder and director, the late Dr. Walter Martin. Over a number of years I regularly subscribed to and received their ministry magazine that contained many helpful articles on various cults and non-Christian religions.

However, I was saddened, disappointed and dare I say it, even shocked, by a series of articles they published in 1993 (some 4 years after the death of Dr Martin) on the subject of Roman Catholicism. Whilst their analysis of that religion was at times helpful, the eventual conclusions that they reached seemed to me to be dangerously misleading and evidenced a ‘soft’ approach to the subject under consideration.

POPE FRANCIS and SYNCRETISM – All Roads Leading To God?

 [PDF] 

On Tuesday 5th January 2016 Pope Francis published a first-ever video outlining his ‘prayer intentions’ and he called upon people to ‘spread my prayer request this month’. The content of that video has caused quite a stir and you can read a full account of it and the reaction to it by going to – http://christiannews.net/2016/01/09/pope-calls-for-collaboration-with-worldsreligions-those-who-meet-god-in-different-ways/

There is a link to the video at the foot of the article but, just as a back-up, this link will also let you see what the Pope had to say – http://www.catholicnewsagency.com/news/in-first-video-message-popefrancis-stresses-unity-we-are-all-children-of-god-39381/

Crucial statements in the Christian News article read as follows

Pope Francis called for dialogue and collaboration among those of the various world religions on Tuesday, asserting that they are simply “seeking or meeting God in different ways”…

Earlier this year my good brother in Christ, Shaun Willcock, of ‘Bible
Based Ministries’ in South Africa wrote a detailed and comprehensive
article assessing the Papal visit to America that had just taken place. It
was titled –

“The Pope of Rome in America 2015: Why now?”
and it could be accessed on –

http://www.biblebasedministries.co.uk/2015/10/01/the-pope-ofrome-in-america-2015-why-now/

and was I know appreciated by many.

In a similar vein and following the recent Papal visit to Africa Shaun has
just published another article entitled –

“The Pope of Rome in Three African Countries 2015: Why now?”

and it can be accessed on

http://www.biblebasedministries.co.uk/2015/12/12/the-pope-ofrome-in-three-african-countries-2015-why-now/

I trust that once more it may be helpful to many.

It is lengthy, so may be best read ‘in stages’ – but it is VERY well worth reading. It can be accessed on –

SCAPULAR SUPERSTITION

 [PDF]

On a recent short visit to the Cork area in the south of Ireland, Margaret and I spent an afternoon having a look at the shops in the centre of Cork City itself. As is our custom on such occasions we split up having agreed a rendezvous time and place for later that day (we have personally found this is one of a number of good methods for maintaining a happy marriage!).

During my ‘browsing’ I noticed a number of men and women handing out something to shoppers as they were either entering or leaving ‘Penney’s’ on St Patrick’s Street. Having ‘loitered with intent’ I was approached by one lady who engaged me in conversation about the ‘Merits of Mary’ and how in particular the use of a SCAPULAR would be of great spiritual blessing and benefit to me. She offered me a free SCAPULAR and I said I would accept it if she would in turn accept something from me. That something was a free DVD of the Revelation TV debate that I took part in back in 2012 with Jesuit Priest, Keith McMillan. After mulling it over she declined my offer and moved on.

‘Dreams, visions, divine voices and appearances’

 [PDF] 

Many claims are made in contrasting realms of professing Christianity, from the extreme hyper-charismatic wing to the conservative missionary-minded wing, that God is still today communicating with people via extra-biblical means such as ‘dreams, visions, divine voices and appearances’.

On 9th June 2015 Phil Johnson, Executive Director of “Grace to You” (linked to John MacArthur) was interviewed on this topic by Chris Arnzen, host of the Christian radio program called ‘Iron Sharpens Iron’.
