Pope Seeks Re-unification of Catholic and Protestant Churches

If I understand correctly, in End Times, there’ll be a single, global church that operates under the authority of the Anti-Christ.  Those who don’t join that singular church, will be executed.

Ever since Martin Luther caused a schism between the Catholic church and, what ultimately became thousands of Protestant denominations, the existence of a single, unified and global church seemed unlikely.

However, the following video offers an interesting analysis of a meeting earlier this year when Pope Francis and his Protestant representative Tony Palmer (a South African Bishop with the Communion of Evangelical Episcopal Churches), advocated a single, re-unified Church–presumably under Catholic authority.

I know that you can’t judge a book or a priest by their “covers,” but Tony Palmer’s appearance fascinates.  Slick hair.  Long eyelashes.  Beard.  Unusual eyebrows (did he pluck his eyebrows?).  Charismatic.  I don’t know if I’m watching a priest or a heavy metal rock star.  Palmer may be a great man, but something about that guy creeps me out.  If I were in charge of producing a remake of the A.D. 1997 movie “Devil’s Advocate,” I’d try to cast Bishop Tony Palmer for one of the lead roles.  To me, he looks the part.

Standing Firm


Peter's Martyrdom [courtesy Google Images]

Peter’s Martyrdom

Two verses in the King James Version of Bible quote the Messiah and always resonate with me:

1)      Matthew 24:13—“But he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved,”  and,

2)       Mark 13:13—“And ye shall be hated of all men for my name’s sake: but he that shall endure unto the end, the same shall be saved.”

A more contemporary translation of the central point of each verse is: “he who stands firm to the end shall be saved”.

In other words, he who “stands firm” in his faith in the Messiah until the “end” of his earthly life shall be saved.

The verses strike me as important because, if they are accurately translated, if they are true, and if they apply to all, then those who believe they’ve been “saved” at the age of 14, or 35 or 68, etc. may be mistaken—and that mistake might imperil their salvation.

Note that the verses declare that “those who stand firm to the end shall be saved.”

President of the former “Evil Empire” Advocates Morality and Christianity


What irony, hmm?  In A.D. 1983, President Reagan described the former Soviet Union as the “evil empire”. Just eight years later (in A.D. 1991) the Soviet Union collapsed and ceased to exist.

Today, while the US government abandons Christianity and embraces homosexuality and Islam, Russian President Putin advocates that Russia must be a moral and Christian nation.

As Putin has already asked, “Who’s the ‘evil empire,’ now?!”–the US or Russia?

Insofar as morality and Christianity are critical to building strong nations, who do you suppose will win the struggle for national growth and strength–Russia or the US? Which “evil empire” is most likely to collapse in the next few years? The Christian nation whose government has turned away from God? Or the formerly atheist nation that’s turned back to God?

Insofar as any nation is inspired and given a sense of national identity by its leaders, who will best increase the public confidence and his nation’s ability to prosper–Obama or Putin?

It’s shameful that none of America’s leaders are as outspoken and determined to do what’s best for The United States of America as President Putin is for Russia.

I’ve known Michael Ellis for about 20 years.  He’s articulate, intelligent, and a man who really loves the Good LORD.

I’ve previously published one of Michael’s documents on this blog at:  http://adask.wordpress.com/2012/02/16/irs-no-authority-for-substitute-for-return-for-1040-income-tax-return/

If I were crosswise with the IRS, and if I thought I was in over my head and unable to stop the IRS on my own, Micheal Ellis is the man I’d call.

Michael is tonight’s guest.  The program should be fun and enlightening.

I hope you’ll tune in.

Tonight’s Radio Show: Pastor Eric Philpot


American Independence Hour hosted by Alfred Adask; 8:00 PM to 10:00 PM Central time, Tuesday nights, on AmericanVoiceRadio.com and also on the KU band, free-to-air satellite link at Galaxy 19.  There’ll be call-ins at 1-800-596-8191.

My guest tonight will be Eric Philpot–the Pastor at the Cross Life Church that I attend.  That church is non-501(c)3.  Pastor Eric is a former infantry officer in the US Army, currently supports himself as an executive in a concrete production plant, and funds the church out of his own pocket. In the 6 or 8 months I’ve attended, no one has ever passed a hat or a collection plate to fund the church.  That impresses me–not because I’m cheap, but it’s evidence that Pastor Philpot is “for real” and not in it for the money.

Pastor Philpot is outspoken,articulate, passionate and spiritual.  He is not politically correct.  If things go well, this may be an excellent program

I’m looking forward to our 2 hour interview.

If you have any questions about religion that you’d like us to consider, please call in at 1-800-596-8191

A NON-501(c)3 Church

In response to an earlier post (“WWJD”) on this blog, one of my readers wrote the following reply to someone else’s comment:

“@ > ‘tax-exempted entities’, …”

“IF IF IF you mean those 501 C3 type v. “NON 501 C3 or whatever the number is, churches, the only difference is just that, nothing else. I can go to either & get the same B.S. sermons. And, I say this because I have visited both types. Maybe I misunderstood your comment, if so, I apologize.”

Here’s my reply:

You apparently believe that all Christian churches deliver nothing but B.S. sermons.  There’s a lot of truth to that, but it’s not entirely true.  I attend a non-501(c)3 church each Sunday afternoon.  The pastor is Eric Philpot, a former infantry captain in the U.S. Army.

I’ve attended his “Cross Life Church” for about four months.  The meetings are held at a local hotel conference room, and typically attract an audience of 25 to 50 people.
