Beware of the pope and popish doctrine! Phil. 3:2 warns us to â€śBeware of dogs, beware of evil workers, beware of the mutilation!â€ť This is an appropriate description and warning of the pope and popish doctrines. There is a corruption and corrosion of Biblical conviction and theology in the Evangelical church as evidenced by a ready acceptance and celebration of pope, priest, and the false Gospel of Roman Catholicism. Rick Warren, Luis Palau, and so many like them have crafted a peace with the pope and His false Gospel that cuts the heart out of the true Gospel and blasphemes the finished work of Christ on the cross. Rick Warren tweeted to the world, â€śWelcome Pope Francis, Cardinal Jorge Mario Bergoglio, Habemus Papam, You have our prayers.â€ť In a Christianity Today article Warren described Roman Catholic sacramental system of salvation as mere â€śdoctrinal distinctivesâ€ť and went on to assert â€śthe fact is, we do serve the same Lord.â€ť Luis Palau has repeatedly stated that the pope is his personal friend and that â€śHe's really centered on Jesus and the Gospel, the pure Gospelâ€ť (Christianity Today, 3/14/13). Charles Spurgeon rebukes Warren, Palau, and all like them; "False gods, attempts to represent the true God, and indeed, all material things which are worshipped, are so much filth upon the face of the earth, whether they be crosses, crucifixes, virgins, wafers, relics, or even the Pope himself. We are by far too mealy mouthed about these infamous abominations: God abhors them, and so should we. To renounce the glory of spiritual worship for outward pomp and show is the height of folly, and deserves to be treated as such." (The Treasury of David, Psalm 106:20)

Words of Wisdom From John Calvin Here are some words of wisdom from John Calvin. "Popery is nothing else than a monster formed out of the innumerable deceptions of Satan, and that what they call the Church is more confused than Babylon."

rebels justifying & defending apostasy Well reasoned and flowery justifications and defenses for apostasy and apostates based upon personal experience will wear thin on that Day in which we all must give an account. Gal 1:6-9, 2 John 10-11, and Jude 3 cry out against such folly with absolute clarity and infinite authority. How dare any man or woman open their foul mouth or put their foul fingers to the keyboard to speak against God's eternal Word. The Word of God judges their defense of apostasy now and the God of the Word will judge them when they stand before His throne if they do not repent. Those who Love the Lord Jesus, His Gospel, and lost sinners will happily stand with Jeremiah and Spurgeon against all those who cry "Peace, peace! When there is no peace" (Jer. 6:14).
