Ravenhill once lamented something along the lines of this (paraphrase):
More and more, Protestants are becoming known as simply "non-catholic." Why accept the name Protestant, what is it that you are protesting?

The early puritans believe the false prophet would rise out of the vatican. Many today believe that the next Pope could display signs and wonders and miracles and be the false prophet spoken of in Dan/Rev coming with lieing signs and wonders. The world is really to bow its knees to such a spiritual leader who's doctrine takes in all faiths as viable for eternal life. I think his death will bring in a true war against christianity that's Christ centered in dogmatic doctrine and orthodoxy.
We have become so soft that many churches respect the pontiff. But they have lost sight that the Popes once killed those who opposed her authority. The Popes were no different then the Caesers, they considered themselves to be god,
Of course Billy Graham is out to lunch with that statement, and if you notice that Graham has NOT the favour of God when Christ said, "beware when all men speak well of you"., "For they that live godly in this life will suffer persecution".
Saint StevenThank you for your deep and sincere feelings.If Greg Gordon were to delete the forums altogther, there would be no communication whatsoever this would just be a normal run of the mill website that we would come to, download sermons, leave a kind message in the guest book and leave. There wouldn't be any interaction, many are blessed when they come here, and you have stated that you are blessed as well.Unity will never come by us just agreeing with one another. The only way unity comes is:"Till we all come in the unity of the faith, and of the knowledge of the Son of God, unto a perfect man, unto the measure of the stature of the fulness of Christ"I would encourage all to read this perfect man, actually it's a vision by Tommy Hicks who started the great revival in Argentina.
