    Quote from another Christian website:-

    "The fundamentalist world is agog with rumors that Jack and Rexella Van Impe are contemplating converting to Catholicism. Who's next? Tammy Fay Bakker? Ernest Angley?"

    Anyone else heard this or know anything about it?

    Yours in Christ

    Matt

    He has been saying some very strange things lately. He was born & raised Catholic, wasn't he? Now he's contemplating going back if I understand it correctly.

    Not exactly rumours: SEE HERE
    Not necessarily a trustworthy source either, but very interesting nonetheless

    Yours in Christ

    I agree , it looks like a very uneliable source.
    This looks a littley fishy to me.
    I think that Jack and Rexalla woulod have something on their television program if they were becoming Catholic.

    Quote from site:
    Sounds pretty Catholic to me. My sister-in-law is Catholic and says that reading the Bible for yourself will warp your mind and that you should get what to believe from your priest.

    Nevertheless, Jack Van Impe praised the last pope as a great man of God - so anything is possible.

    I'm watching him right now and wouldn't you know it, Rexella just read a love letter written to them from a Catholic viewer.

    Here is part of Jack's response to the letter:

    They are now claiming that the RCC believes in the "5 essentials" of the faith, therefore Protestants ought to embrace the RCC:

    1. The deity of Jesus
    2. The virgin birth
    3. Substitutionary death of Jesus
    4. The bodily resurrection
    5. The Second Coming

    Now they're peddling Jack's new book and video.

    From the start of the program until the end, it was RCC praise.

    Not a big JVI fan, but don't most RC's believe in the five essentials above? Also, isn't it true that the church until the 1500's was either east (orthodox) or west (catholic)?

    For that first question, yes.

    As for that 2nd one.
    Well there were the Waldenses and you can seperate the east into 2 distinct branches, so it's slightly more complicated.
    On the other hand the story about IFB churches (with their serial number filed off and replaced by a label like say Donatists) being around in the 4th century A.D. and earlier is while self-esteem building not true.

    I've been watching Jack on the Inspiration Network this week (what can I say?) and see no indication of conversion. In fact, he lays preterism squarely at the feet of the Jesuits.

    But who can know? I saw Benny Hinn talking with a Latin Rite priest and a pentecostal "church historian" who made outrageous claims about early church history. Of course, David Cerullo was parroting comments about the Illuminati and such.

    Since when did gullibility become a Christian virtue?

    BTW, if the van Impes convert, I would consider it a gain for evangelicals and a headache for Benedict XVI.

    Pardon my ignorance, but what is the Substitutionary death of Jesus?

    He missed it on the post-trib rapture, too! [​IMG]

    Could money play a role in this? Jack has a huge RC following.

    Basically the idea that Christ's death on the cross was in our place, that is, a substitute. Since "all have sinned and come short of the glory of God," then we all deserve to pay for our own sins. But Christ took the punishment for us, and our acceptance of this gift of love makes it "count for us."
