Another Apostasy in Progress

Jack Van Impe and wife Rexella have decided to apostatize to Roman Catholicism. The details are here:

April 16 Program

April 23 Program

You foolish Van Impe's, who has bewitched you, before whose eyes Jesus Christ was publicly portrayed as crucified? This is the only thing I want to find out from you: did you receive the Spirit by the works of the Law, or by hearing with faith? Are you so foolish? Having begun by the Spirit, are you now being perfected by the flesh?

One of the reasons he gives for his conversion is the "30,000 Protestant denominations" argument--the stock "Catholic Answers" drivel that has been refuted time and again. Jack Van Impe will be in for quite a shock when he finally realizes he won't be allowed to spout his hyper-dispensational views from the pulpit anymore without being in conflict with the eschatology of Roman Catholicism. At first he'll be rattled by that. But then he'll find out that there really is no unified Roman Catholic belief after all, and that he is at liberty to subscribe to any one of the 30,000 various views found in the Roman Catholic denomination.
