Pastor Bob Coy: "These Elements Will Become Part of Who You Are"

Bob Coy is head Pastor at Calvary Chapel Fort Lauderdale.

Bob Coy is an excellent speaker and does very captivating sermons, one thing we all need to be careful of as the Bible instructs is

2Pe 2:3 And through covetousness shall they with feigned words make merchandise of you: whose judgment now of a long time lingereth not, and their damnation slumbereth not.

With time, while things appeared good on the surface, I was noticing some problems with time, discovering this video online, definitely brought up a lot of questions. Did ex-Catholics among his congregation issue a protest? Maybe a few did or ended up having to leave.

He states:

"I want you to see what you hold in your hand is that love and that grace, and that when you eat this and you drink this, there ought to be that declaration, that proclamation God just, "I do want all your amazing attributes coursing in through me. Think about it. You are going to eat and drink and these elements in just moments will become part of who you are.

Does Bob Coy know he basically taught what is Catholic theology in this particular sermon?

As we consume the bread and wine of the eucharist and these elements become a part of our physical body, we are in turn consumed by the Lord of Love and become a part of his living body on earth. Christ's true presence in the sacrament transforms us who receive it in faith into images of the living God. With it goes the responsibility to love in the way he taught us so that the world will know that God is indeed in our midst.

What do you expect from a man-made church? Ever seen their statement of faith? Basically an off-shoot of the Catholic Church.

Only a New Testament Church has the authority to baptize and conduct the Lord's Supper and Calvary Chapel does not follow the doctrine laid forth by Christ Himself.

Yeah the more I have studied Calvary Chapel, the more they seem to be a Catholic offshoot. I was planning to explore the Catholic involvement with the Pentecostal and Charismatic movement but it is something, I have not gotten to yet.

What do you consider a "new testament" church. There's a few left out there with born again believers that haven't fallen away yet. So we may be in agreement there.

Calvary Chapel definitely is full of false doctrine.

On the Bob Coy thread on there are THREATENING postings from apparently someone in the Coy Machine.
So picking up a few things from the most successful Gnostic cult.... the RCC.... should be of little surprise.

Bible Believer said...

I couldn't find that particular thread, could you send the link?

Well I have had online Calvary Chapelists malign me, and insult me and go all out to defend the cult, so nothing would surprise me.

That is the way of business of all false churches. They do what they can to silence dissenters and keep people from learning the truth.

And while I personally am open to all these ideas... some concrete examples backed up with scriptures would be great.

Be careful of the more subtle deceivers in Calvary Chapel.

"Real Presence" in Communion is not what Jesus taught but comes from Rome.

I know you are a new believer so praying for you.

Bob Coy must have been forced to resign. The last post he put on Facebook before they tore it down, was that he was looking forward to baptisms next month. They must have discovered some pretty ugly things that went on a long time, and required him to step down and out with speed.

I was at Calvary from 2007-2009. I was a new believer. They protect the guilty and leave the flock open for constant satanic attack. If you just read your bible, you will easily see they are infiltrated with false doctrine. When God made it clear that the infection is coming from the top, Bob Coy, and infecting the body, I left. 1 Cor 13:8-10 teaches the following gifts ceased: tongues, prophecy and knowledge (we have the bible now). They believe in tongues (which by the way, in the bible mean't different languages, not some gibberish chatter.). That is demonic and is opening the whole congregation to deception.
It's a mystical experience there, not true, biblical doctrine. Everywhere I turned there was deception, perversion, lies. From books sold in Calvary bookstore, to people in leadership roles, to classes with occult undertones, etc. In the bible, there is no elders in the church. There are only deacons and a pastor. The office of a pastor, bishop and elder are INTERCHANGEABLE in Acts 20:17-28 and 1 Peter 5:1-5. If you get yourself into a true, God fearing, bible believing church, you will be taught God's word. Bob Coy was not called by God. There is no power in his preaching. Just like there is none in Joel Olsteen's preaching. It seems obvious to me now, that Coy covered up and protected all these other situations I was witness to, because he cared not for the flock. He never was concerned about protecting the body of Christ. Once again, seems the many assistant pastors at Calvary are more interested in covering up what happened and protecting the wolf than the BODY OF CHRIST. If a leader in Calvary can not see after all these yrs what was going on, and not be convicted by the Holy Spirit to challenge and confront, then I would not remain under their leadership.
