Roman Catholicism: Through the Lens of Scripture - Mike Gendron
Many Christians do not know if the Roman Catholic Church is a Christian denomination made up of brothers and sisters in Christ, or an apostate church that represents a huge mission field. The doctrinal distinctions between Catholics and Christians were very clear until 60 years ago. However, since then the Vatican has been trying to unite all of Christianity under the power and influence of the papacy. Its strategy has been very effective in persuading highly influential evangelical leaders to sign unity accords with Roman Catholics that declare a common faith in the Gospel. Needless to say, the exclusivity and purity of the Gospel has been compromised such that many Christians cannot discern the true Gospel from a false gospel.
In this ten part series, evangelist Mike Gendron will look through the lens of Scripture to identify and expose the many doctrinal errors of the Roman Catholic Church. As a former devout Roman Catholic of 35 years, Mike knows the religion from personal experience. Since becoming a born-again Christian 40 years ago, he has directed a world-wide evangelistic outreach to the 1.3 billion Catholics who are in bondage to religious deception. This series will give you an understanding of the history of the Catholic Church as well as its future in Bible prophecy. Most importantly, you will learn how to effectively evangelize Roman Catholics using the supreme authority of God’s Word to proclaim our Lord Jesus Christ as the all-sufficient Savior who finished His perfect work of redemption. The series will also encourage you to contend earnestly for the faith for the glory and honor of Christ and the sanctity of His Church, as well as the purity and power of His Gospel.
