I have been dealing with significant health problems and have not had time to post any articles.
Also, I’m not entirely certain what form EZC will take in the coming months. Lord willing, He will equip me to write things worthy of reading. I wanted to share these articles written by Sola Scriptura saints that are defending the Word of God and Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
It saddens me that so many no longer seem to care about our precious savior and Lord Jesus Christ, preferring to insult and blaspheme Him with so-called “inter-faith” dialogue. Rick Warren has said, “We have far more in common than what divides us,” and Kenneth Copeland endorses the first Jesuit pope.
‘Interfaith’ Baptist-Chrislam-Muslim Pastor Rick Warren Refers to Catholic Pope as “Our Pope”, by Barry at Conservative Refocus
The impetus may seem harmless enough, however, the impulse is in fact well past insidious–a melding of the religions into one-size fits all apostasy…just as predicted, long ago, by the way…..
There is a hardcore, full-court press happening right now to unify all Christian denominations under the banner of the Roman Catholic Church, and the charge is being led by none other than apostate pastor and Chrislam founder Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in California. Warren has a purpose driven plan to break down and destroy the Christian church, and unite the pieces with Rome.
In the above video, Rick Warren is seen slyly referring to Pope Francis as “our pope”, and then going on to brag about what a great job he is doing.
He wants you to blithely assume that of course Pope Francis is the “spiritual head” over all of Christianity and not simply over the Roman Catholic corporation.
He slips it in like that’s what everyone already thinks and believes.
This is nothing more than mental conditioning. A bible believing Christian under no circumstances ever would acknowledge that any pope in the Roman system had any sort of rule over them of any kind.

Rick Warren’s comments on Roman Catholicism
[EZC: Excellent article, as always, by CARM.] A brief outtake…
In a video published by the Catholic news service1 senior pastor Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California, failed to properly assess the critical differences between Biblical theology and Roman Catholic theology regarding the doctrine of salvation and added credibility to the Catholic Church. In the video, he appealed to sentiment and not Scripture and said, “the most important thing is if you love Jesus, we’re on the same team.” His statement is, of course, problematic.
Following is a full transcript of the two-minute video. I’ve underlined comments that I’ll be addressing after the quote.
“We have far more in common than what divides us. When you talk about Pentecostals, charismatics, evangelicals, uh, fundamentalists, Catholics, Methodists, Baptists, Presbyterians, on and on and on and on.”
Well they would all say we believe in the trinity, we believe in the Bible, we believe in the resurrection, we believe salvation is through Jesus Christ. These are the big issues. Sometimes Protestants think that Catholics worship Mary like she’s another god. But that’s not exactly catholic doctrine. There’s the understanding, and, and people say well what are the saints all about? Why are you praying to the saints? And when you understand what they mean by what they’re saying there’s a whole lot more commonality. Now there’s still real differences, no doubt about that. But the most important thing is if you love Jesus, we’re on the same team.
“The unity that I think we would see realistically is not a structural unity but a unity of mission. And so, when it comes to the family we are co-workers in the field on this for the protection of what we call the sanctity of life, the sanctity of sex, and the sanctity of marriage. So there’s a great commonality and there’s no division on any of those three.
“Many times people have been beaten down for taking a Biblical stance. And they start to feel, “well maybe I’m, I’m out here all by yourself.” No you’re not.
“The church is growing in Latin America. The church is growing in Asia. The church is growing in Africa. It’s not growing in North America or Europe. But it is growing everywhere else, so we kind of have this feeling that maybe we’re not, uh, uh, as- as influential; but we’re far more influential than people realize.” (emphasis added)²

False Teacher Kenneth Copeland Wants To Unite With The Catholic Church
The video you are about to see is shocking. It is a blatant, full-frontal assault by the Vatican to, once again, attempt to swallow up the professing Christian church…
WARNING: The video you are about to see is shocking. It is a blatant, full-frontal assault by the Vatican to, once again, attempt to swallow up the professing Christian church like they did back in 325 AD when the Catholic Church was invented. What you will hear Kenneth Copeland and Anglican priest Tony Palmer – a personal friend and confidant of Pope Francis – say is that “if you are born again, then you are a Catholic” among a host of other outright lies.
Kenneth Copeland is a false teacher of the prosperity gospel, and is to be avoided at all costs. Christians are not Catholics, and never will be. The Catholic Church is an invention of the Devil, and is the one that has spilled the blood of the martyrs. Share this video with every one you know.³
