What an opportunity! While in Chicago at a well-known restaurant, I had the opportunity to speak the truth of the pure gospel to the archbishop of the country of Slovakia. Though his host needed to translate, brother Jay and I had about 35 minutes to preach the truth of salvation by grace through faith apart from works. This man is the highest Catholic in this country of 5 million people. I could not have paid money to have an audience with this man, yet the Lord opened the door! What did I tell him. I quoted numerous scriptures regarding salvation APART from works including Ephesians 2:8,9, Titus 3:5 and the irrefutable Romans 4:5 (which NO religious person ever has been able to refute, including Catholic theologians, Mormons, JW's etc.). I was courteous, but firm, as I told him that he was leading people to hell and that he believed and taught a false gospel message that is damning many! They were not happy however whan I addressed the archbishop by "sir" instead of his title. (I asked them to show me the word "archbishop" in the Bible). We dealt with a few other issues such as Matt. 23:9 and Jay addressed the fact of the Catholics that murdered the true Christians in the inquisitions etc. but the focus was on the false gospel that the RCC teaches and the archbishop's responsibility before God to renounce this false system and be biblically born-again. Please pray, we never know what the Lord may do with this witness with the archbishop, his host and translator and this man's wife, who listedened to the entire converstaion. Only the LORD can open doors like this and I praise Him for this opportunity! And while I was courteous, some might question the firm speech that both Jay and I used as we dealt with him. This is a false religious church that is wicked and blasphemous! This archbishop needed the truth, not an acceptance of their damning beliefs. As I stated earlier, both of us were decent and respectful but we did tell him that Catholics were "magical" and "cannibilistic" with their transubstantiation and that Mary was a sinner (Romans 3:10,23, Eccl. 7:20 etc.). This man needed the TRUTH brethren and that is exactly what he received! In fact what started the conversation was when I told him that we preached the gospel of Jesus Christ and the new birth, he said that we were on the same page and I had to correct him. Catholics do NOT believe the gospel message and their doctrine is accursed according to Gal. 1:8,9 as well as the individuals preaching the doctrines. So again, please pray that the Lord will use the witness! Thanks brethren!

In this day there is no tolerance for things truly Christian! The sodomites cry that the Christians are intolerant of their filthy wicked lifestyle, the evolutionists shout that the true believers are not tolerant of their vain and false beliefs, the Muslim proclaims that the "Christians" have no respect for their damning religion and the Catholic gets angry when the born again Bible-believing preacher preaches against their Mary-worship and their blasphemous transubstantiation, but none of these have TOLERANCE for the preaching that Christ is the ONLY way to heaven! It is about time that we put the world with its abominable sin and it's false religions on the defensive! Make them feel uncomfortable! As long as we are right according to the scriptures, then we are right, the Word of God is right and they are wrong! That is not arrogance, but truth! God is Holy, atheist, drunkard, lost religious church-goer! he will not tolerant your false religion! Catholic-beware! God is INTOLERANT of your whore of Babylon beliefs! Sodomite-Watch out! The Lord is angry with your sin and does not tolerate your vileness! Muslim-You are warned! God will not agree to disagree with your lying prophet nor your unscriptural belief system! Do you realize, Christian, that these that are intolerant of Christ and the true gospel are headed for an eternal hell and are in opposition to God's Holy Word! Jesus Christ is the WAY, the TRUTH and the LIFE, like it or not! If you do not agree, YOU ARE WRONG! Christian, get some backbone and stand truthfully for our Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ! How many Christians will back down from being a faithful witness at work or to family members, while those have not been warned! Let the sinner know their responsibility before God! Warn them of hell and God's judgment! Proclaim to them that God is NOT tolerant of their false belief!
