Cardinal Francis George is the spiritual leader of 2.3 million Chicago-area Catholics, and he's up to his elbows in ecumenical activity. On March 26, 2012, Reformed pastor John Armstrong and Archbishop of Chicago Cardinal George will come together at Wheaton College for “A Conversation on Unity in Christ’s Mission.” One of their shared interests has been a greater conversation between the Evangelical community and the Catholic Church.
Just as with every ecumenical event, the Jesuits are always standing in the wings, and this event isn't any different. This is because the Cardinal is a member of the Sovereign Military Order of Malta, and the Grand Prior of the North Central Lieutenancy of the United States for the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem. He is also a member of the American Catholic Philosophical Association - an organization that has an interest in the metaphysics of mysticism and the phenomena of occultism.
Who is Dr. John H. Armstrong?
Dr. Armstrong is founder and president of ACT 3, a ministry for equipping leaders for unity in Christ's mission. He is former pastor and church-planter, and he also has a writing ministry. Dr. Armstrong is an adjunct professor of evangelism at Wheaton College Graduate School, teaches in various seminaries and colleges as a guest lecturer, and is a seminar and conference speaker throughout the United States and abroad. He is noted for building bridges between the Roman Catholic and Evangelical Church for the purpose of missions and ecumenical unity.
Note the four triquetra within a Maltese cross. Freemasonry espouses universalism, embraces religious pluralism, and has effectively created a unique syncretistic religion.
The Church with a Mission
We would be deceived if we believed that coming together for missions was the only thing the Catholic church had in mind. There are many things wrong with this ecumenical plan for unity, and the two leaders who plan to speak at this conference.
- The Knights of Malta, controlled by Jesuits and the organizations Cardinal George belongs to, are responsible for helping thousands of the worst Nazis and members of the SS escape to freedom down these Ratlines, thus evading justice and avoiding the hangman’s noose at Nuremberg. They also seek to create a counter-Reformation and bring Christ's Church under a pagan Baal-worshiping Pope. Jesuits believe the Pope is Christ on Earth, and that he is infallible in matters of religion - which is blasphemy.
- One of the aspects of the Emergent church teachings, which is conveyed through Dr. Armstrong's writing, is that of Missional living. Missional living is a term that describes a missionary lifestyle; adopting the thinking, behaviors, and practices of a missionary in order to engage others with the Gospel message. Based on a Wikipedia author, the five distinctives that form the foundation of the missional perspective are:
- The Church is sent by Jesus Christ
- The Church is sent with the Cross
- The Church is sent in Community
- The Church is sent to every Culture
- The Church is sent for the King and His Kingdom
Do you see any similarity with the symbol used on the cover of Dr. Armstrong's The Unity Factor, the New Age symbol on the cover on Marilyn Ferguson's The Aquarian Conspiracy, and the triquetra of the "Third Way", also known as Fascism? Note that the center of the triquetra is used for the Illuminati triangle. This should be a clear indication that the modern way of missional living is a counterfeit to Biblical Christianity's missions work.
Let's look at this symbol again. The three intertwining circles also have the numbers 6-6-6 within them.
- 3. Wheaton College is a breeding ground for future Emergent church leaders. Wheaton gave us Rob Bell, Billy Graham, Josh McDowell, John Piper, as well as some other controversial ecumenical Christians. They have endorsed Freemason Billy Graham's Emergent Lausanne Movement, and are involved with the practice of mystical Contemplative prayer. The conference is based in one of the most socialist cities in the country, which is why they can find "common ground" and cooperation with the Roman Catholic church.
This type of information is always disturbing. We are watching the Church go down the tubes.
The Bible says, "...while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way. But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also" (Matthew 13:25).
Many believers are beginning to wake up to find the Church has been infiltrated by Jesuits, and those who have been intentionally tearing the Church apart. They call it unity, but it's actually intended to have the opposite effect.
To those of us who are awake, the Lord says in verses 16, 17: "But blessed are your eyes, for they see: and your ears, for they hear. For verily I say unto you, That many prophets and righteous men have desired to see those things which ye see, and have not seen them; and to hear those things which ye hear, and have not heard them." This indicates that not everyone will be capable of having the spiritual sight as others do. Since they don't, you'll feel a little crazy for being able to see what others can't.
It is clear that these tares are the greatest work of Satan. Surprisingly, Jesus tells us not to worry about them. He said, "Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, 'Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.'"
But does this mean that we should never say anything about the apostasy, or were these verses intended for those close to the time of the harvest? Remember that Romans 16:17-18 says, to "... mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. For they that are such serve not our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly; and by good words and fair speeches deceive the hearts of the simple."
I want to suggest that we speak while we still have the freedom to do so, and since the Bible instructs to mark them and avoid them. We certainly aren't supposed to picket their churches, rather make others aware of what is going on in a respectable manner. The worse they are, the more we will need to watch them. Their words seem to reflect holiness and love for God, and they show kindness and love to those they instill their corrupt doctrines, while accosting them courteously when they intend them the greatest mischief. When you see this, you'll understand that the master they serve is not our Lord Jesus Christ.
