    First of all I have to comment on the pseudo CNN type opening of the program (I had never seen it before): since they are watching FOX around the news office and looking at reports they printed off of google, their journalism must be beyond doubt. ;)

    Second, Jack pretty much comes out and says that Pope John Paul II preached the gospel. :deadhorse:

    Third, if he really has converted to catholicism then so much the better because that means he is an amillenialist and we won't hear any more prophecy reports. :)

    And yet there is still some confusion because he said that the pope taught and expected the literal millenial reign of Christ. Apparently Benedict has not been very faithful with his most recent catechist. :eek:

    I caught a segment of his show the other night. He and Roxella were commenting about how the Catholic church has always agreed upon the "5 essentials", which I can't remember right now.

    Five fundamentals (I believe):

    The inerrancy of the Scriptures
    The virgin birth (or deity) of Jesus
    The doctrine of substitutionary atonement
    The bodily resurrection of Jesus
    The second coming of Jesus Christ

    Yep, that's them--- and that's what makes the Pope a fundamentalist.

    I didn't see any conversion to Catholicism, but they might as well had.

    Anyone know from whence "Dr." Rexella Van Impe got her degree(s)?

    Did Jack slip up in quoting JPII? In the first week program he says, "Luther was right. We are saved by faith alone" (which Rome has always denied) and later say "grace alone" (which is the RC position mixing works for justification).

    So, what are the implications of this --- for his world-wide prophecy ministry. Still sensationalist about the end times?

    Apparently Van Impe has been warming up to Rome for at least 2 decades. There are a number of fundamentalist sites warning of Van Impe's compromise with Rome.

    As long as he continues giving his viewers a good dose of dispensationalist sensationalism (1), he's OK. At least until TBN pulls the plug.

    (1) Amazing stuff like this: "Note this discovery: The number 6 in Roman numerals is made up of the letters VI. The ancient Greek number 6 was taken from the sixth letter of the alphabet, the letter sigma, which looks like the English letter s. Returning to the Babylonian Empire and its sexagesimal system of numbers, the programmer considered the possibility that its letter A equaled 6. Thus, from the three great world empires of history, he found that the composition of the number 666 spells the word VISA"”the precise name of today´s most accepted and popular credit card!"

    Is Jack the beast? You decide:

    V - is 5 in Roman numerals
    A - means alpha, first letter in the Greek alphabet, so that represents 1
    N - in mathematics represents any countable number, so let's take 138

    I - is 1 in Roman numerals
    M - is 1000 in Roman numerals, the preceeding 1 means to divide 1000 in half, leaving 500
    P - Represents PI, 3.14159
    E - Represents Exponent, so we take PI to the e, or 22 (rounding to the nearest integer)


    Add them all up 5 + 1 + 138 + 500 + 22 = 666

    Thus Van Impe carries the mark of the beast.

    Do you mind if I use this for my sermon on Sunday morning?

    I used to listen to him every once in awhile during my teenage years. I wasn't saved at the time but I grew up in a dispensational church and believed the garbage Van Impe would say. I knew something was off way back then when I started hearing him say positive things about Rome. Even though I wasn't converted yet, I knew the Roman Catholic teachings didn't square with scripture. I started to doubt what Van Impe said after that. Now when I hear him, I can't believe that I used to take him seriously. He's totally ridiculous.


    Amen to that. :lol:
