Are Catholics Christians?
Are Roman Catholics our brothers in Christ because of their faith in Jesus? Many evangelical leaders are making that claim. They are ignoring or dismissing the biblical warning that another Jesus will be preached (2 Cor. 11:4). Most recently, Pastor Robert Jeffress of First Baptist Church of Dallas, interviewed Sean Hannity, a devout Roman Catholic during the Sunday morning worship hour. Jeffress said, “There will be millions of Catholics in heaven who have put their faith in Christ for the forgiveness of their sins.” Perhaps Jeffress does not know that Catholics worship and trust a false Christ who continues the work of redemption on an altar that the true Christ finished on the cross 2000 years ago (John 19:30). Perhaps Jeffress does not know that another Jesus always leads to another gospel which sends people to hell. Was this an inexcusable tragedy for Jeffress to embrace Catholicism as a valid expression of Christianity on the weekend we celebrate the 500th anniversary of the Reformation? The Reformers were brutally tortured and burned at the stake for defending the exclusivity of the Gospel and exposing the false and fatal Gospel of Rome. Perhaps the true Gospel was withheld and concealed by Jeffress for political expediency and media popularity. Below is a summary of the Counterfiet Jesus of Roman Catholicism as he is presented in their Catechism.
