On July 16th “TOGETHER 2016” will bring together Pope Francis (via video), Ronnie Floyd (President of the SBC) and many other well known people (I hesitate to say Christians) in hopes of unifying the Vatican with Evangelicals worldwide.
As has been thoroughly covered elsewhere, the Together 2016 is hosting many theologically questionable people whom are widely popular with evangelicals. This rogue’s gallery includes Hillsong UNITED, Christine Caine, Kari Jobe, Kirk Franklin, the rapper “who happens to be Christian,” Lecrae, SBC President, Ronnie Floyd, Josh McDowell, Tedashii, Trip Lee, “God’s lover” Ann Voskamp, Matthew West, and Roman Catholic musician Matt Maher. It has to the attention of the Pulpit & Pen that Matt Maher won’t be the only Roman Catholic featured at this event. Pope Francis has added himself to the lineup, stating that he will speak to the audience via video. Founder of PULSE, Nick Hall, who helped organize the event, said,
We are humbled and honored by his involvement and eager to share his message with the crowd that gathers at Together 2016…That His Holiness would choose to speak into this historic day is a testament to the urgency and the need for followers of Jesus to unite in prayer for our nation and our world. -source (Emphasis mine)
Brethren, I am in shock as I write this. Josh McDowell? Matthew West?? Kari Jobe?? What is going on??!!
The article goes on:
Many of the people in the lineup have already demonstrated a lack of Christian commons sense. For example Kirk Franklin helped write a profane gospel album with Kanye West and Ravi Zacharias gave a evangelically weak lecture sat the Mormon Tabernacle and often speaks with Christian figures of ill-repute such as Christine Caine. Now Zacharias, West, and their compatriots will engage in a partnership with the Pope of Rome himself. This isn’t a mere demonstration of a lack of common sense. This is a flouting of biblical admonition.
Sadly, inappropriate partnerships are nothing new for Southern Baptist President, Ronnie Floyd. In 2015, Floyd spoke at the ecumenical IHOP OneThing Gathering, hosted by NAR luminary, Mike Bickle. Floyd made it clear that he believed the doctrinal differences between he and Bickle were minimal. He has taken a similar and more concerning position with regard to the Together 2016 gathering. In a letter he wrote to the events’ producers, he stated:
In 1997, Promise Keepers held their Stand in the Gap rally on the National Mall. I had the privilege to speak to over 1.3 million men who attended from all over America. It was one of the greatest moments of my life. Unquestionably, the scene of a sea of men gathered to experience the Lord together was epic.
Now is the time for another million or more people from our generations to come together on the National Mall in Washington D.C. A gathering of people from all backgrounds of life and every ethnicity joining together in one place, at one time, for one day to unite around Christ and His hope for America and the World
Our greatest need in America is for the next Great Spiritual Awakening to occur. What if Saturday, July 16, 2016 was the day that God brought Spiritual Awakening to the National Mall in Washington D.C.? Do not miss Together 2016.
It’s incredible that the president of the Southern Baptist Convention, a denomination that has historically stood on conservative biblical truth, has not only displayed a lack of discernment by partnering with an IHOP dominionist but with the false-gospel-proclaiming pontiff of the apostate Roman Catholic Church.
It doesn’t take a great theologian to figure out that God is not going to bring a revival through false worship that He hates. -source
Not only is God not going to bring revival because of false worship, but America is under His judgement, and rightfully so! Between abortion and gay marriage, America is no better than Sodom and Gomorrah!
The Catholic Church is NOT Christianity. It is a works based religion and I believe that Luciferian worship takes place at the Vatican. These people who are joining themselves together with this cult have zero discernment! Oh brethren, we are definitely in the last of the last days.
I wrote an article recently on the Vatican and Lucifer worship:

I’m excited about a unique event that is coming up this summer. I’ve already got it on my calendar. It’s called Together 2016. If you are not already planning to go, I hope you’ll consider making plans. So, here’s some more information to help you better understand what it is all about.
PURPOSE: The dream is to see one million people stand together for Jesus on the National Mall. We believe Jesus changes everything. We pray that this will be a generation-defining moment of unified prayer, worship, and a call for catalytic change.
DATE: Saturday, July 16, 2016
TIME: 9AM – 9PM
LOCATION: National Mall, Washington DC
ARTISTS + SPEAKERS: Hillsong United, Francis Chan, Kari Jobe, Ravi Zacharias, Lecrae, Nick Hall, Passion, Christine Caine, Ann Voskamp, Kirk Franklin and many more
Please know that Together 2016 is not owned by any one group, organization, or denomination. So:
We are laying aside what divides us and lifting up Jesus who unites us.
Our generation is the most cause-driven in history, but our causes are pulling us apart. We believe only Jesus can bring us together.
This is an opportunity for the Church to come together. We are family; it’s time for a family gathering.
We need everyone there—every age, background, culture, social status, and denomination.
Will you consider joining me at Together 2016? You don’t have to stay the whole time. Some folks might come early and leave in the afternoon. Others might come in the afternoon and stay through the evening. That’s fine. Just stay for the part you are able, but one way or another be sure to be a part of this special day. Also, I encourage you to the let the organizers know you plan to be there by going to http://reset2016.com/going/.
For those of you who attend ICC regularly, it will be a great culmination to our new Summer Reset series that launches this Sunday. So, let’s go! -source
NO! Let’s NOT go!! Come out from them!
Brethren, when Jesus told us that we should be united, He was speaking of born again, blood washed, Holy Spirit filled believers. He was NOT speaking of unity with other religions. I can’t find the words to express to you how EVIL this is. But once again, this is happening to further fulfill the prophetic Word of God.
I predict that soon these events will be inviting Muslims to participate. Can you see where this is going? Can you say ONE WORLD RELIGION?
“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel: Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ. But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed. As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed. For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ. But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man. For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ” (Galatians 1: 5-12)
Keep your eyes on the Lord Jesus and immerse yourself in His Word!
