Deception Alert: What is the True Church?
Series Crosstalk America
Extreme deception is taking place in our world today through areas such as news, entertainment and even religion. The apostle Paul warned Timothy about this (2 Timothy 3:13) where he talks about evil men and seducers who go about deceiving and being deceived. John also gave a warning in his second epistle, warning that many deceivers have entered into the world who don't confess that Jesus has come in the flesh.
Addressing the form of deception that this Crosstalk dealt with may seem unloving to some but it was put forth with genuine, sincere love and concern. The main deception dealt with on this broadcast is the claim that the Roman Catholic Church is the one true church founded by Christ 2,000 years ago.
Returning to Crosstalk to deal with this issue was Mike Gendron. Mike is the founder and director of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministry. Mike was a devout Roman Catholic for over 3 decades and 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. Mike is the author of the books, Preparing for Eternity and Contending for the Gospel and has produced numerous videos with warnings concerning false teachings vs. the truth of the Scriptures.
The true church is not a denomination or a building. Mike communicated that it's an assembly of born-again Christians who have faith in the Lord Jesus Christ and God has called these people out of the world as His own possession.
