Yet another Moody Radio show is embracing Roman Catholic teachings. Unfortunately this may be the worst one yet because a Catholic theologian promotes Roman Catholic teachings without any pushback from the Moody's host, Melinda Schmidt. The Catholic guest, Pia de Solenni, was interviewed about The New Feminism. He states: "The priest in Catholic theology, stand in the person of Christ." He also said, "for Christians we have one right of initiation for both men and women: that's Baptism, that's how you become a Christian, whether you are male or female."
Melinda's response embraced the fatal lie of baptismal regeneration. She said: "Yes, we all come to Christ the same, men and women, it's the same formula (laughter), it's the same right as you said to come to Christ." You can listen to the program here.
Moody Radio host Melinda Schmidt also interviewed Father Robert Barron, a Roman Catholic Evangelist, whom Cardinal George calls "one of the [R.C.] Church's best messengers." The interview is available here.
In 2011 Moody Press published Prayers for Today: A Yearlong Journey of Contemplative Prayer. It is based on the writings of Catholic mystics such as Thomas Aquinas, Teresa of Avila, Mother Teresa, and Meister Eckhart, theological modernist Harry Fosdick, and other heretics.
In November 2011, Moody Bible Institute’s Midday Connection radio program featured Adele Ahlberg Calhoun as a guest, and Moody host Anita Lustrea recommends Calhoun in her book What Women Tell Me. “Lustrea tells how she met Calhoun during a course calledGrowing Your Soul (Calhoun is co-director and founder of the program) and how Calhoun taught her some o f the contemplative ‘spiritual disciplines’ p. 125” (“Spiritual Disciplines Handbook,” Lighthouse Trails, July 2, 2012). Calhoun’s Spiritual Disciplines Handbook: Practices That Transform Us is a primer on contemplative mysticism. Calhoun enthusiastically recommends Roman Catholic mystics such as Ignatius Loyola, St. Benedict, Julian of Norwich, John of the Cross, Teresa of Avila, Richard Rohr, Henri Nouwen, Thomas Merton, Thomas Keating, David Steindl-Rast, William Meninger, and M. Basil Pennington. In the Acknowledgement’s page, she says that “their ideas, voices and examples have shaped my own words and experience of the disciplines.” Not only did these mystics hold to a false gospel, which is under the divine curse of Galatians 1, but some of them were panentheists and universalists.
