Transcript:and on a different call that news4themasses has linked to Chuck Smith Sr, comes up with this:
Don Stewart: Alright back we go to the phones to Orange, California with Ben on the line. Ben welcome to Pastors Perspective, Hi!
Ben: Hi how are you?
Don Stewart: Fine thank you!
Ben: I uh, I am a loyal listener, I um love going to uh your men’s conferences [Don Stewart: “Good!”] and I fellowship with a bunch of people at Calvary Chapel’s, um I visit Greg Laurie’s Harvest, and I have a question because I sometimes I have a hard time understanding um how I um, communicate with people um of the Protestant faith because I am Catholic, and sometimes we um have communication issues and, they want to get into apologetics and um, you know I love the worship and the fellowship with those – with the different people but um I’m going to hang onto my faith as well, and I am just curious what you think about it.
Don Stewart: OK, good question there Ben in fact were glad your going to these events we’re glad you listen to this program. OK Chuck what about that?
Chuck Smith: Ben I have a cousin who was a mother superior in the Catholic Church, and uh, she was just a wonderful Christian, loved her and we had great conversations together, and I didn’t try to convert her from Catholicism nor did she try to convert me uh into becoming a Catholic, its just we both recognize that uh you know we have, we had the same Lord, and the same uh faith ya know and so uh we just uh you know on those things we agreed upon we just agreed upon and we didn’t really bring up the things where there were disagreements.
Not included in the video:
Don Stewart [Minute 49:42]: Ya um again the question is Ben if you love the Lord Jesus, if you’re trusting Him and Him alone for your salvation that’s the key, what are you trusting in, what’s going to get you to heaven is it Jesus and something else or Jesus and Jesus alone and that’s the question that needs to be answered, and of course the Bible said its Jesus alone by grace through faith we’re saved, it’s not of ourselves, not of works lest anyone should boast, cause Chuck it wouldn’t be heaven would it if people were walking around bragging what they’ve done…and uh no peacocks strutin’ around, na na it’d be real miserable we’re not going to see that in heaven. Alright let’s go now to Aurora, Colorado and talk to Jay on Pastors Perspective, Jay welcome to welcome to the program [Minute 50:20].
(Beverly) Caller- Yes I have a question is it right for a Catholic woman to marry a Christian man even if she’s pregnant with his child?
Chuck Smith Sr.- Well, I don’t ah see that, ah, well ah there’s going to be difficulty, uh ya know, but if you can resolve the differences, I don’t think they’re that great, and I think that you probably, ah if you’re pregnant with his child you should marry him, and of course ah I think that uh, it’s um it’s alright you can resolve the differences. and I think that uh I , ah, I know of many of that ya know.. You know Catholics are basically Christians too and uh so uh I think that uh, you know what the differences are less than much less than what a lot of people face and are overcoming in their mariages.
Please read the rest of what news4themasses has to share on her blog about this, more audio links, and more details.
Maybe given what has been exposed about Calvary Chapel, they are not even going to pretend anymore, they will now be out and blatant about their ecumenical ties to Rome and their view of the Catholic church as another "Christian church". Basically my theory about Calvary Chapel being a set-up from the start rings true.
If you are in Calvary Chapel and reading this, try telling your pastor that the Catholic church is the harlot warned of in Revelation, and see what reaction you will get. I promise you it will be very interesting. I still remember the offended look to this day. Read the blog entries warning about the one world religion and know you must "come out of her". That includes all false churches. And NO, Catholics are not Christians too. A few in there may be searching for truth, or just about to leave but that's it. I left the Catholic church within days after I was born again. The Holy Spirit will expose what the RCC really is to any born again believer, it teaches a false gospel and presents 'another christ"-The Eucharist-idol. One thing too, where are all these dissenting Calvary Chapel preachers that Lighthouse Trails keeps mentioning? Those have got to be some of the most quiet guys out there in the world, because I sure haven't heard a peep from any of them.
