Two valuable articles from ex-Catholic priest, Richard Bennett

Great resources!

excatholic4christ

Last week, I highlighted several Gospel outreaches to Roman Catholics, including ex-priest, Richard Bennett’s Berean Beacon ministry.

The Berean Beacon website (see here) is chock-full of resources for curious Catholics who would like to know more about Biblical Christianity and for evangelicals who would like more information so that they might be better able to witness to their Catholic family members and friends.

I was perusing through the Berean Beacon site myself recently and came across the two valuable booklets below. I printed them out and had them spiral bound at Staples for my reference library, but you can easily download the PDF formats and read them on your tablet or another device.

The Roman Catholic-Lutheran Accord
By Richard P. Bennet
Chapel Library, 2000, 17 pp.

The Roman Catholic church had been in ecumenical discussions with liberal Lutheranism (Lutheran World Federation – LWF) for many years and in 1999…

Memorial Day

“Do we ever think about those who sacrificed their lives so that we could hear the genuine Gospel and have God’s Word to read for ourselves? “

excatholic4christ

Today, the country rightly commemorates the servicemen and servicewomen who sacrificed their lives so that we can enjoy the many freedoms we possess. There are billions of people throughout the world who can only dream about the freedoms that we often take for granted. Today we remember that those freedoms were secured for us by those who sacrificed their lives, and we are grateful.

As a believer, today I also remember all of those martyrs who paid with their lives so that we could have the Gospel. When people think about “the martyrs,” they generally think about the members of the early church who were persecuted by the Roman Empire. But believers have suffered persecution over the past two-thousand years, mainly at the hands of the institutional church. Do we ever think about those who sacrificed their lives so that we could hear the genuine Gospel and have God’s Word…

(J.C. Ryle)

It is of great importance to recall to our minds the real nature of our work as ministers of the Gospel. We should remember constantly the great ideal of what a Christian minister ought to be, sketched out in the sixth chapter of the Acts: “We will give ourselves to the Word of God and to prayer.”

The preaching and expounding of the Word of God, with nothing added, and with nothing taken away–is beyond all doubt our principal business. We must take heed that we give due honor to the Word of God in our public ministrations. A thousand things continually call us away from this–committees, schools, visiting, and the like. But we must remember . . .
that we are ministers of the Word of God,
t
hat our province is the Word of God, and
that we must be very careful…

Sozo Prayer-Shared from Tom over at excatholic4christ

“Wow. It’s a like Christian seance, making contact with dead Jesus. That’s some powerfully ridiculous BS. How much does one of these healings cost? Maybe I need to get a local franchise.”-comment from the comment section of this article.

This is Tom’s page which I acquired this article from. I highly recommend a visit to his blog-it has great information for practicing Roman Catholics and for those that have had the pleasure of Jesus breaking the chains of this practice 💕

Beautiful 💕

John 17:20-23

20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

21 That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.

22 And the glory which thou gavest me I have given them; that they may be one, even as we are one:

23 I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.

Absolutely beautiful! Thank you, Jesus!

Gospel Outreach Ministries to Roman Catholics

“Aren’t they Christians, too?”

excatholic4christ

Did the title of this post, “Gospel Outreach Ministries to Roman Catholics,” catch your attention? Some of you may be thinking, “Why do we need to reach out to Roman Catholics with the Gospel? Aren’t they Christians, too?” In our current era of plurality, tolerance, and inclusiveness, it’s seen by many as uncharitable to speak the truth about Roman Catholicism. After all, many say that “Catholics love Jesus, too.” But the truth is that the Roman Catholic church teaches many doctrines that are quite different from Biblical Christianity. Most importantly, Catholics are taught that salvation comes through sacramental grace and merit rather than by God’s grace alone, through faith alone, in Jesus Christ alone. Catholics need to hear the genuine Gospel rather than the false gospel they are taught in their churches.

Below, I’ve provided links to the websites of some of the most effective ministries that specifically reach out…
