Protestants recruit Latino immigrants
HARVARD, Ill. (Reuters) - Roy Peraza, a Cuban-born pastor in one of America's fastest-growing Protestant denominations, trolls this sleepy town's supermarkets and restaurants in search of new Latino converts.

He approaches newly arrived immigrants, many of them lifelong Roman Catholics with few contacts or relatives in the United States.

It is here in the rural U.S. heartland where Peraza and other evangelical and mainline Protestant missionaries seek converts among the avalanche of immigrants from Mexico and Central America.

Less than a year ago, the Springfield, Missouri-based Assembly of God church told Peraza to start a ministry in the 8,000-strong community, where the Latino population has more than tripled to 3,000 in the past 15 years. ...

Jim, I looked up Mike Gendron's Testimony, and I wasn't too impressed.

My impression was that he left the RCC because he got tired of repenting of his sins. He figured it would be better to look round for a religion that would guarantee salvation without repentance.

He's apparently found that religion, even if maybe he's had to invent it himself.

It can be very hard and discouraging to try and break a habit of sin, but the correct way is to continue to seek God's forgiveness, not give up.

Protestant,

Any Catholic who is a college graduate like I am should think logically and analytically and disregard the totally insane and unscriptural doctrines of the Catholic Church and should just adhere to the scriptural doctrines of the Catholic Church.

I do not care what the Catholic Catechism states that all Catholics have to believe all Catholic doctrine. I am not some stupid ignoramace that can not think for self. I am a college graduate and as a college graduate I am able to ascertain which Catholic doctrines are logical and scriptural and should be adhered to and which Catholic doctrines are illogical and unscriptural and should be dispensed with.

John

The Romish Doctrine of "fides implitica" (in simple language) goes something like this:

"The Church of Rome is the sole possessor of the perfect truth of God. This truth is very difficult to understand. Only a few highly trained priests can fully grasp it. God is gracious and understands that the peasants can't possibly understand something so deep and profound. So God winks at their ignorance. So long as the peasants remain have 'implicit faith' and remain Roman Catholic, God is willing to impute the teaching of the Church to them and overlook their superstitions."

In other words, so long as you remain in the Roman Catholic Church, they will swallow up your 'ignorant' belief in the sufficiency of the Bible and other 'protestant' views and impute their false teachings to you, like it or not.

God's command to all saved Roman Catholics (including you John) remains the same:

"Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues." Rev 18:4

John what I found will be interesting to you. I thought I might find a Spanish version of:

http://www.johnankerberg.org/Articles/_PDFArchives/roman-catholicism/RC2W1299.pdf

However, while I found some hints of one, I didn't find it. It would help Baptists to bring more Catholic Latinos to Christ.

But! I did find Mike Gendron's website!

http://www.pro-gospel.org/

As you might know, Mike was a Catholic for 34 years before he became a Christian. I was pleasantly surprised that I found in one of his news letters,

http://www.pro-gospel.org/main/Newsletters/2003-Volume12/Vol12no2.pdf

A much longer and I think a somewhat different approach to the above tract. While the feature article "Saved Catholic?" is very interesting the whole newsletter is:

John,

Perhaps you should now be asking why your priests have never taught you about "fides implitica". It really is very clever of them to use those obscure Latin phrase to keep the laity ignorant.

"fides implicita"

Implied faith or implicit faith (if I have my Latin correct)?

Wrong, John, they are just try to get them into a Christian church and out of a cult. As my pastor Gil Rugh said many years ago, it is better to go out and play a game of golf then to listen to false teaching. So, they should be warned about the Catholic Church.

http://www.johnankerberg.org/Articles/_PDFArchives/roman-catholicism/RC4W0899.pdf

A Christian wouldn't be in the Catholic Church.

http://www.johnankerberg.org/Articles/_PDFArchives/roman-catholicism/RC2W1299.pdf

So, John, what are you going to start playing golf?

Protestant,

I never heard of the Catholic doctrine of "fides implicita" before so I can not comment on that doctrine.

What do you understand by the Romish doctrine of "fides implicita" and how does this affect what you have asserted below?

Your question has been answered at these forums dozens of times already.

At least Latino kids would be less likely to get molested by sophomoric Protestant youth ministers than by RCC priests.

Those Protestants should just try and get the Latino Immigrants who are Catholic to become Born Again by taking Christ as Savior without trying to convert them to Protestantism.

Why can't those Protestants tell the Catholic Latino Immigrants that they can be Born Again and remain Catholic and still remain saved if they disregard the unscriptural doctrines and adhere only to the scriptural doctrines of the Catholic Church and if they pay attention and participate only in the scriptural parts of the Mass like the Sign of the Cross, Apostles and Nicene Creeds, Penitential Rite, readings from the Bible, the Lord's Prayer, the Eucharistic Prayer(except for the part that mentions asking for the intercession of the Virgin Mary and the Saints) and prayers to Jesus and if they rededicate their lives to Christ every night when they go to bed and ask Christ to forgive any sins that they may have committed during the day.
