Crosstalk: October 3, 2018
We are living in the day and age of 'another gospel.' Which is not another. Galatians 1:6-9...
Recently, VCY received a press release regarding a coming event titled ‘Rosary Coast to Coast.’ The information details how that since March 31st of 2018, ‘Rosary Coast to Coast’ has quickly been embraced across the country. To date, there are close to 1,000 rosary event locations registered, with more being added every day for this Sunday’s (October 7th) event.
Joining us to discuss this issue is Mike Gendron. Mike was a devout Catholic for over three decades. He was taught to rely upon the authority of the church above all else. Mike searched the Scriptures and was amazed to find that what he read in Scripture contradicted the teaching and tradition of the church he had been a part of for so long. He trusted Jesus as his Savior and now the Bible has become his sole Authority in all matters of faith. For these Truths found in the Bible alone, Mike has devoted his life to helping Roman Catholics (once like himself) to see the error in this teaching and tradition. He refutes that he himself is ‘disgruntled’ and says ‘No one knows they are deceived until they are confronted with the Truth.’
Gendron explains just exactly what the rosary is. He says the rosary is a ‘form of devotion to Mary, in which five sets of ten ‘hail Marys’ are repeated - intermixed with prayers to the father and prayers to the trinity.’ However, he says that the major number of prayers are to Mary. Gendron says there are also mysteries – ‘joyful mysteries, sorrowful mysteries and glorious mysteries.’ These ‘mysteries’ include meditations on the assumption that Mary is in Heaven coroneted as ‘queen’ – a term Mike says is not biblical in regards to the birth mother of Jesus Christ.
With the Bible as his platform, Mike holds nothing back in regards to refuting these upcoming rallies and encouraging Roman Catholics to actually read the Bible. He warns of the ‘total deception going on’ and that it is all fueled by Satan himself. Satan who Jesus called the ‘father of lies.’ (John 8:44) Mike contends that not only do Roman Catholics have another gospel (Galatians 1) but, they also have ‘another Mary’ and gives three biblical reasons for never praying to her. These include: 1) Mary is not in Heaven. 2) Jesus’guidelines for prayer (Matthew 6). 3) Jesus is the only Mediator between God and man (1 Timothy 2:5).
Crosstalk also takes some very inquisitive phone calls.
