November 12 - Why Did a Calvary Chapel Pastor Meet with a Catholic Archbishop?
Article: Ecumenical Movement - Misc.

I'm going to keep this one short. Read one of my latest articles discussing the Manhattan Declaration, Chuck Colson, and how it is being used by Rome to pull evangelicals into the ecumenical movement. This article reveals information I found out doing research for that blog entry.

Many in Calvary Chapel really cannot conceive of the ecumenical going-ons out there, between leaders within their denomination and even within other evangelical groups. As I explained in the Manhattan Declaration blog entry, Chuck Colson is a main figure, that has worked steadily to bring evangelicals into unity with the Catholic church. It's happening in many denominations and as you will see here, Calvary Chapel has not remained immune. Some can say.. "Not Calvary Chapel, they warn about the Catholic church and the Emergents!" [yes they do from time to time in Bible conferences and elsewhere] but what does this really mean if pastors and others are meeting at ecumenical gatherings? Do not let those fool you who admit some errors of Rome, but then join together with it's top leaders. If there are any pastors in Calvary Chapel against this stuff, have they spoken out? I would like to see.

Read for yourself
here from Chuck Colson's website:

"As the planning unfolded, Chuck suggested we invite the world. And so we did—that is, our known world here in New Mexico . We called a meeting for the Archbishop to meet with key Evangelical leaders, Dr. Joseph Bunce of the New Mexico Baptist Conference, Dr. Micheal Dickenson of the New Mexico Assemblies of God, Dr. Fred Huff of the Nazarene Churches of New Mexico, Pastor Robert Hall of Calvary Chapel, Pastor Jian Zhu of the Albuquerque Chinese Christian Church (also a Centurion), Pastor Don Kimbro of New Mexico Christian Churches."

I went to go check to see if Robert Hall is a pastor in Calvary Chapel: he is.

I found this OTHER article, entitled "Catholics and Evangelicals Unite". This article admits that a Calvary Chapel church with others helped to sponsor this event. [it is the church where Richard Hall is pastor of] The author who was supportive of this Manhattan Declaration meeting writes:

"I was also thankful for all the sponsors: The Archdiocese of Santa Fe, New Mexico Assemblies of God, The Baptist Convention, Calvary Chapel Rio Rancho, the North American Mainline Chinese Mission, New Mexico Christian Churches, the Traditional Values Action Committee, and various other individual churches.

Thus my question of the title, Why Did a Calvary Chapel Pastor Meet with a Catholic Archbishop?" Nothing excuses being equally unyoked with a false religion. Doesn't this man have any ex-Catholics who renounced that false gospel within his own church? Anyhow the evangelicals seem to have been almost fully drawn into the harlot. For Christians who understand why and how this is happening biblically, the overwhelming feeling is of sadness for those being so deceived.
