Mike Bickle, founder of Kansas City’s International House of Prayer (IHOPKC) along with other charismatic evangelical leaders recently met with the pope of Rome to “discuss Jesus.” Remember, the same Mike Bickle that Southern Baptist President, Ronnie Floyd, joined up with in 2015 for a prayer rally?
According to CharismaNews, Bickle stated,
The meeting lasted a couple of hours. They gave us the opportunity to ask questions. The meeting was very warm and personal, I asked [the pope] about his views on the serious error and deception of universalism that claims that ‘all paths lead to God’ and other religions being saved without receiving the grace of God that only comes through Jesus. He assured me that he believes that Jesus is the only way of salvation.
Considering that the Roman Catholic church officially teaches that anyone who believes that one is justified and saved by grace alone through faith alone is anathema, one wonders why an evangelical leader would affirm such an apostate. Canon 9 of the Council of Trent states:
If any one saith, that by faith alone the impious is justified; in such wise as to mean, that nothing else is required to co-operate in order to the obtaining the grace of Justification, and that it is not in any way necessary, that he be prepared and disposed by the movement of his own will; let him be anathema.
You can rest assured that the pope stands firmly on this belief. The pope simply pulled a fast one on Mike Bickle, and Bickle fell for it. Not that it would matter to Bickle that much anyways since his views of biblical authority and doctrinal truth are just as warped as the pope’s. IHOPKC along with its founder, Mike Bickle, have been blaspheming the Holy Spirit since its inception.
Then one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and said to me, “Come, I will show you the judgment of the great prostitute who is seated on many waters, with whom the kings of the earth have committed sexual immorality, and with the wine of whose sexual immorality the dwellers on earth have become drunk.” – Revelation 17:1
