Most Charismatics in America belong to Roman Catholic Churches

Most Charismatic Protestants today have no idea that the very thing that they believe distinguishes them from other denominations or religions is being practiced among those who do not claim to be Protestant or Christian. Charismatics claim that every Christian ought to be baptized with the Spirit which will be evidenced by speaking in tongues. Yet the very sign they claim is being manifested largely within Roman Catholicism, Mormonism, and occultic religions who claim to have the true way to God.

Our doctrines and our love for the brethren are to distinguish us from the world, not some outward charismatic manifestation.

Myths Exposed on Charismatic Christianity in America by Jennifer Riley

Never dawn on me as to the ‘why’! Just business as usual kind of thing. Point being, folks really do need to study the history of this movement, ask some very important questions. As Michael Bunker says,”Do Catholics go to heaven? Better find out because odds you are one”

      Most do not realize that today’s Charismatic movement was started by a Roman Catholic in the early 1800’s. The Protestant version of it began in the early 1900’s in the ‘Azusa Street Revival’.

      I believe with all my heart that the Roman Catholic Church has infiltrated the Protestant Churches with false doctrines and spirits, in order to bring all Protestants back up under the Pope.
