Charis-magic Indulgences

“Reformation Day” is October 31st and is on the calendar of the historical Church in Remembrance of the Reformation period. In 1517, Martin Luther posted his famous “95 theses” which ultimately “outed the Catholic Church” for the heretical practice of selling indulgences. Protestants and particularly Evangelicals, trace their roots to the movement inaugurated by the courageous Luther.Why was that an issue and what does it have to do with us now?

The  selling of indulgences  provided a source of income  for the undertakings of leaders in the church. In short, peddlers would sell grace for cash. God’s acts of favor supposedly would be dispensed to the people when they paid a fee and received the prepared document that was the guarantee of the grace to be conveyed. Make the payment, receive the item, and by this exchange,  supernatural grace would be mediated through the manufactured item. Thus, the selling of the favor of God pure and simple.

Protestants agreed with Luther that such a practice must be wholly rejected as a worthless and fraudulent money-making scheme that perverted grace for financial gain.

The following ads demonstrate why we need contemporary Luther’s. One is from the well received Elijah List ,the other from a false prophet named Master Prophet Jordan. Finally, charismatic minister  Sandra Kennedy.

What do they all share in common? The selling of Charis-magic indulgences.

Catholic Exodus

Former Assemblies of God  missionary Don Newville is now a Catholic convert. Former Charismatic  Pastor Jeff Cavins is now a popular Catholic speaker. Former Campus Crusade staffer Peter Gillquist is now an Orthodox priest. The controversial pro-lifer Randall Terry announced he has converted to Catholicism.

Wow, at first glance, it appears  protestants are trending  toward Catholicism. However,  that simply isn’t the case.  One of three people who were raised Catholic no longer identifies as Catholic and many are converting to Protestantism because of spiritual hunger and style of worship.

” …books and articles have been written on the more recent trend of Protestants converting to Catholicism, this dynamic is a mere trickle compared to the losses the Catholic church has sustained in the last century.

“One out of every 10 Americans is an ex-Catholic,” Thomas Reese notes in an April 18 article in the National Catholic Reporter. “If they were a separate denomination, they would be the third-largest denomination in the United States, after Catholics and Baptists. One of three people who were raised Catholic no longer identifies as Catholic.”

Reese’s article, which generated buzz and debate in the Catholic world, argued that the primary reason people leave the Catholic church for Protestantism is not disagreement with the church’s doctrinal or social positions, but spiritual hunger.

“Their spiritual needs were not being met in the Catholic church and they found a religion they like more,” Reese writes, citing a study by the Pew Research Center. “Eighty-one percent of respondents say they joined their new church because they enjoy the religious service and style of worship of their new faith.”
