Rick Warren was interviewed recently on the Roman Catholic TV Network EWTN. Did he defend Biblical truth? Did he call those within Rome’s walls to repentance or did he join hands once again with a false religion?
“For all nations have drunk of the wine of the wrath of her fornication, and the kings of the earth have committed fornication with her, and the merchants of the earth are waxed rich through the abundance of her delicacies. And I heard another voice from heaven, saying, Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. For her sins have reached unto heaven, and God hath remembered her iniquities.”
Steven L. Anderson seems to have grown in popularity of late with the release of two films by Paul Wittenberger called ‘After the Tribulation’ and ‘New World Order Bible Versions’, but what does the man believe about salvation? Is he a reliable and trustworthy source for Christians who truly love the Lord Jesus Christ? Should faithful Christians promote these films? What are his connections to the theology of Jack Hyles and Hyles-Anderson College?
Anglican Bishop Tony Palmer recently spoke at Kenneth Copeland’s conference promoting unity with Rome and other Christian groups. Is this the unity the Bible speaks about? Are those who separate from Rome bigoted towards Roman Catholics as some claim? What is the unity promoted in the Bible? Who are those in the true Church of Jesus Christ?
“Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! It is like the precious ointment upon the head, that ran down upon the beard, even Aaron’s beard: that went down to the skirts of his garments; As the dew of Hermon, and as the dew that descended upon the mountains of Zion: for there the Lord commanded the blessing, even life for evermore.”

Final Message in ‘The Fall of Man’ Series.
“And Adam called his wife’s name Eve; because she was the mother of all living. Unto Adam also and to his wife did the Lord God make coats of skins, and clothed them. And the Lord God said, Behold, the man is become as one of us, to know good and evil: and now, lest he put forth his hand, and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live for ever: Therefore the Lord God sent him forth from the garden of Eden, to till the ground from whence he was taken. So he drove out the man; and he placed at the east of the garden of Eden Cherubims, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to keep the way of the tree of life.”
Who are the children of Abraham today? What future has the modern state of Israel according to the Word of God? How does this impact how we look at Dispensationalist theology and Reformed theology?
“Now the Lord had said unto Abram, Get thee out of thy country, and from thy kindred, and from thy father’s house, unto a land that I will shew thee: And I will make of thee a great nation, and I will bless thee, and make thy name great; and thou shalt be a blessing: And I will bless them that bless thee, and curse him that curseth thee: and in thee shall all families of the earth be blessed.” –Genesis 12:1-3

“And I will put enmity between thee and the woman, and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.”

Should we expect a future temple or a third temple in Jerusalem? What is the ‘Temple of God’ in 2 Thessalonians 2:4? Who are the temple of God today in the new covenant? What are the implications of this on dispensational theology?
“Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition; Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.”
–2 Thessalonians 2:3-4
“Jesus answered and said unto them, Destroy this temple, and in three days I will raise it up. Then said the Jews, Forty and six years was this temple in building, and wilt thou rear it up in three days? But he spake of the temple of his body.”
“Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God, and he shall go no more out: and I will write upon him the name of my God, and the name of the city of my God, which is new Jerusalem, which cometh down out of heaven from my God: and I will write upon him my new name.”
“Now therefore ye are no more strangers and foreigners, but fellowcitizens with the saints, and of the household of God; And are built upon the foundation of the apostles and prophets, Jesus Christ himself being the chief corner stone; In whom all the building fitly framed together groweth unto an holy temple in the Lord: In whom ye also are builded together for an habitation of God through the Spirit.”
What does this message from the Vatican to Kenneth Copeland, using Anglican Bishop Tony Palmer, tell us about Rome? Has Rome changed in a way that Protestants can now embrace or it is something that cannot be trusted at all?
“Separated because, it’s sin that has separated us, all our sins. The misunderstandings throughout history. It has been a long road of sins that we all shared in. Who is to blame? We all share the blame … I am speaking to you as a brother. I speak to you in a simple way. With joy and nostalgia (yearning). Let us allow our nostalgia (yearning) to grow, because this will propel us to find each other, to embrace one another. And together to worship Jesus Christ as the only Lord of History.” –Part of pope Francis’ Message to Kenneth Copeland.
“It is by mixture of counterfeit religion with true, not discerned and distinguished, that the devil has had his greatest advantage against the cause and kingdom of Christ.”
With the release of the highly anticipated new film from producers Mark Burnett and Roma Downey, which will be distributed by Fox, should Christians be excited and support this new film? What theologians were on the advisory board for ‘The Bible’ miniseries which they produced? What do the producers believe about the Jesus Christ of scripture? What will the fruit be from this if it is a ‘success’ within the Christian Church? How should we evangelise the lost? What should the response of the Church be? These and other related issues are discussed on this week’s show.
