Megiddo Radio | Pope Francis’ Teaching on Economics (w/ Richard Bennett): Merely Aquinas and Roman Tradition
On this show Paul is joined by Richard Bennett of the Berean Beacon Ministry. Richard Bennett is an Irish former Roman Catholic Priest who has for many years exposed the teachings of Romanism since he left the church of Rome. His testimony is a blessing to many of the grace of God unto salvation. Richard has spent a long time studying the economic thought of Rome and this will be the main focus of the interview. Are Francis’ teachings on economics new? Is Francis a communist? Who is Thomas Aquinas and how does he influence the Roman Catholic world today? How has Aquinas inspired Liberation Theology? Richard also speaks of his own experience with Liberation Theology.

Paul discusses the Reformed view of the atonement verses the Arminian view of the atonement. How does Arminianism limit the atonement and how does Calvinism limit the atonement? Also in this show Paul will continue his critique of the views of Steven L. Anderson.
Paul will continue his refutation of Steven Anderson’s sermon on Calvinism while discussing one of the most hated doctrines in the Bible, God’s Sovereign Election.

Paul discusses on tonight’s show some misinterpretations of Total Depravity, Free Will and Calvinism that exist which have been taught by Steven Anderson. Paul critiques one of Steven Anderson’s sermons attacking Calvinism on this show.
Paul continues to discuss Thomas Aquinas and the influence that he has had on the church of Rome. What is the political and economic thought of Rome? How has she been consistent since the middle ages and how has she changed?
As the media continues to wonder after the Beast, with the current pontiff speaking to the United Nations, is Pope Francis any different to the established Roman Dogma with this latest declaration of anti-capitalism? What can be learned from his economic views? How are they similar to collectivist regimes, be they communist or fascist? How should we respond Biblically on the issue of private property?
Megiddo Radio | Pope Francis Kisses Skin and Blood Relics at John Paul II’s and John XXIII’s Canonisation
On April 27th 2014 the Roman Catholic Church canonised two former popes, John Paul II and John XXIII. Rome now declares them to be ‘saints’ who can intercede to God on the people’s behalf. Is such a practice Biblical? Who are the true saints of God? What does it mean to be a saint according to the Word of God? Should the Church use relics or should they ever contact the dead in prayer? Paul looks also at what the Bible says about the Roman Church and what it says for those within it’s communion.
“For there is one God, and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus”
-1 Timothy 2:5
“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.”
Megiddo Radio returns for the first time in 3 months. Paul discusses the subject of marriage and courtship using his testimony of his marriage to Faith as an example.
“And the Lord God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him… And the Lord God caused a deep sleep to fall upon Adam, and he slept: and he took one of his ribs, and closed up the flesh instead thereof; And the rib, which the Lord God had taken from man, made he a woman, and brought her unto the man. And Adam said, This is now bone of my bones, and flesh of my flesh: she shall be called Woman, because she was taken out of Man. Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.” –Genesis 2:18, 21-24
With so many young people leaving somewhat conservative Churches in our day what can be done? With so many leaving the faith in their early 20s and with so many problems within in the family unit, what is the solution? Are modern youth ministries Biblical? Paul discusses these and other issues on this week’s show.
“Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it.”
“My people are destroyed for lack of knowledge: because thou hast rejected knowledge, I will also reject thee, that thou shalt be no priest to me: seeing thou hast forgotten the law of thy God, I will also forget thy children.”
“The house in which there is no family altar can scarcely expect the divine blessing. If the Lord do not cover our habitation with his wings our family is like a house without a roof; if we do not seek the Lord’s guidance our household is a ship without a pilot; and unless guarded by devotion our family will be a field without a hedge. The mournful behaviour of many of the children of professing parents is mainly due to the neglect or the coldness of family worship; and many a judgment has, I doubt not, fallen upon households because the Lord is not duly honoured therein.”
“If you say you cannot restrain your children, this is no excuse; for it is a sign that you have brought up your children without government, that your children regard not your authority. When parents lose their government over their children, their reproofs and counsel signify but little. How many parents are there who are exceedingly faulty on this account! How few are there who are thorough in maintaining order and government in their families! How is family-government in a great measure vanished! and how many are as likely to bring a curse upon their families, as Eli! This is one principal ground of the corruptions which prevail in the land. This is the foundation of so much debauchery, and of such corrupt practices among young people: family-government is in a great measure extinct. By neglect in this particular, parents bring the guilt of their children’s sins upon their own souls, and the blood of their children will be required at their hands.”
“1. A pastor must be sound and uncorrupt in his doctrine; and indeed so must the master of a family (Titus 1:9; Eph 6:4).
2. A pastor should be apt to teach, to reprove, and to exhort; and so should the master of a family (1 Tim 3:2; Deut 6:7).
3. A pastor must himself be exemplary in faith and holiness; and so also should the master of a family (1 Tim 3:2-4; 4:12). ‘I,’ saith David, ‘will behave myself in a perfect way; I will walk in,’ or before, ‘my house with a perfect heart’ (Psa 101:2).
4. The pastor is for getting the church together; and when they are so come together, then to pray among them, and to preach unto them. This is also commendable in Christian masters of families.”
“Children who observe that their parents are practically prayerless in the household will grow up indifferent to religion, and in many cases will be utter worldlings, if not altogether atheists. This is a matter about which the church cannot make any inquisitorial inquiry; it must be left to the good sense and the Christian spirit of the heads of households, and I therefore speak all the more strongly, and pray you so to order things at home that family prayer be not hindered.”
