A Catholic asked Francis Chan if he “had any words for the Catholic Church and the time that we’re in.”
What did he tell her? Nothing. He paused for about 30 seconds then said, “I don’t believe I’m supposed to answer that question. I don’t believe the Holy Spirit wants me to answer that question.”
Riiiiight. The Holy Spirit said not to share the real Gospel with someone whose religion has at least 95 things wrong with it.
Question: How can you miss a softball that badly?
Answer: When you are a wimpy world-lover.
All he had to do was point out how wildly Catholicism differs from true Christianity. He could have liberated her from a works-based, man-made religion. But he took the easy way out and muttered some gibberish about her and how we all need to get along blah blah blah.
Note that this is one of the many ways that people use “sloppy God talk” to justify all sorts of bad behavior. You see, God gives Francis direct revelation on command, so he’s extra special and if you disagree with him you are obviously disagreeing with God.
Though did you notice that it came through a little fuzzy? He “didn’t believe” the Holy Spirit wanted him to answer. Did the Holy Spirit mumble? Or did Francis make that up and blame the Holy Spirit? You decide.
He also hangs with phonies like Benny Hinn and Mike Bickle.
Run, don’t walk, from people like Chan.
