Religious institutions that deceive people about their eternal destiny are to be exposed as enemies of God and agents of the devil. The Bible reveals there is only one answer to the question: "What must I do to be saved from the wrath of a Holy and Righteous God who must punish sin?" To give the wrong answer to this sobering question is to propagate the most lethal and deadly lie anyone could ever speak. To point people to the wide road that leads to destruction is the most despicable departure from the truth and a devilish abomination to God (Prov. 12:22). Those who twist the Word of God are doing it to their own destruction (2 Pet. 3:16). God will destroy those who speak falsehood because He abhors the man of deceit (Psalm 5:6).
There is an important distinction between the institution that deceives people and the misguided souls who are victims of its deceit. As Christians, we are to love those who are victims of deception but hate the evil institutions that deceive them. Some may ask if our hatred is justified. According to God's inspired Word, it is. The Psalmist wrote: "Hate evil, you who love the Lord" (Psalm 97:10). We are to hate every false way and despise falsehood (119:128,163). Therefore, let us all love the Catholic people, but hate the religion that deceives them with a false and fatal gospel. It is not love if we allow them to march proudly towards hell's gate without warning them with God's Word. Those who have been deceived will never know it until they are lovingly confronted with the truth. We must use the truth of God's Word to expose and destroy the lies of the devil. May our passion for the truth cause us to have a greater compassion for those who are perishing! And may our hatred for lies cause us to contend more earnestly for the faith (Jude 3).

Love for the truth with Cindy Hartline (Rapture Ready Radio) Cindy's guest is Mike Gendron, of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministry, to discuss Pope Francis in Bible Prophecy -- RAPID REPLAY
Mike began by stressing that there is no higher authority than God and His Word. This must be the standard by which every man uses to find out what is true and what is false. We are called to test every spirit (1 John 4) and we do that with the supreme authority of the Word of God.
The media has been receiving press releases that exalt Mary in celebration of what's being called 'The 100th Anniversary of Our Lady of Fatima'. The celebration is based on the May 13th, 1917, apparition that appeared to small children in Fatima, Portugal, and is believed by Catholics to have been Mary.
So how do we really know if this was Mary or not? We test what they're saying with God's Word. With that thought in mind, Mike quoted the following message that came from an apparition that appeared in Fatima:
'You saw Hell where souls of poor sinners go. In order to save them, God wishes to establish devotion to my immaculate heart and the world.' It went on to say, 'If people do what I ask, many souls will be saved and there will be peace. Only I can help you. My immaculate heart will be your refuge in the way that will lead you to God. In the end, my immaculate heart will triumph.'
Mike noted that nowhere in the Bible does it state that we are to be devoted to anyone other than Christ. So this is not an apparition of Mary but rather an angel of light masquerading as Mary in order to draw people away from pure devotion to Jesus Christ.
