Lou Engle of The Call is again raising concerns after a Roman Catholic leader prostrated at his feet on Saturday in declaring that he wanted to “kiss his feet” in an act of reconciliation between Christians and Catholics, and Engle returned the act by likewise kissing the man’s shoe.
“And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet colour, and decked with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication: And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.” Revelation 17:4,5 (KJV)
EDITOR’S NOTE: No, Lou Engle, Bible believers will never, I repeat, never align themselves with the Roman Catholic Whore of Babylon. Catholic Rome that shed the blood of millions of Christians is the enemy. Catholic Rome is the great counterfeit church who has her roots in Mystery Babylon. Lou Engle, you deceive your people, teaching them lies instead of Bible truth, wanting them to hold hands with the Vatican whore. You are a false teacher of a false gospel.
The gesture took place during “Azusa Now,” an event hosted by The Call, which was attended by over 100,000 people at the Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum.
False teacher Lou Engle bows before Roman priest and begs forgiveness from Rome:
Azusa Now event featured Christians bowing to Rome and begging to be ‘reconciled’ to the false doctrine of the Catholic Church. The action starts at 6:55:00, watch as much of it as you can stand to absorb. I was good for almost two minutes.
“Believing that decades of globe-spanning prayer have saturated the heavens, we will boldly ask God for the rain of revival,” a description of the event states. “We will consecrate an entire day—15 hours—for the purpose of unity, miracles, healing, and the proclamation of the gospel.”
Engle had specifically invited Roman Catholics to attend the event.
“We just want to welcome our Catholic brothers and sisters from the Archdiocese of Los Angeles to gather together to pray,” he said in a promotional video. “Come join your brothers and sisters at the Memorial Coliseum believing for a move of unity and an outpouring of the Holy Spirit.”
One segment of the event featured Matteo Calisi, a Roman Catholic leader who had been appointed by “Pope Benedict” to serve on the Pontifical Council for the Laity, and had also served as president of the Catholic Fraternity of Charismatic Covenant Communities and Fellowships. Calisi founded United in Christ, an organization that strives for ecumenism between Christians and Catholics.
During the segment at Azusa Now, Roman Catholic leader Calisi told the audience that division between Christians and Catholics is a “diabolical sin,” and that Jesus “doesn’t care” that Christians and Catholics disagree on biblical doctrine.
