Dear Ones in Christ,
Many television preachers are doing a disservice to the precious Roman Catholics who bow down to idols, who honor Caesar ruling from Rome in the Vatican, who believe their priests can pull down Jesus out of heaven and magically turn Him into a cookie, and then claim that, by eating Him, they have "received Jesus."
Are these Catholics, in fact, true Bible-believing, born-again Christians? Of course not! They are lost and deceived by the great whore of Revelation. Then why do many television preachers always include them when they name the various "denominations?"
Are they playing politics? Is it to avoid controversy? Or are donations a factor? Either way it is giving false security to Catholics by viewing them as spiritually okay.
This is a trend that must stop. How can we reach these precious souls if they are being spiritually soothed like this? Instead, we must warn them that they are in mortal danger of dying without realizing that they must repent and come to a risen Saviour to be saved. I don't know about you, but I feel it's unfair and wrong in the eyes of God.
Your brother in Christ,
