    Dear Mr Smith,
    As an ex Salvationist I am shocked and saddened by the spiritual blindness of the Salvation Army leaders these days.
    I love the Army of years gone by that preached the biblical gospel.
    May the Lord open the eyes of his own within the S.A to follow him and not this heresy.
    God bless you brother in Christ,
    Linda

    Beautiful testimony — Praise and glory to our God! My conversion story is somewhat similar but my past was Eastern Orthodox until God saved me by His grace. God bless you.

    As the son and grandson of Salvation Army Officers (ministers) who gave their lives in service to God , I am horrified that the S. A. world leader would even consider such a meeting. It certainly is a sign of the times and shows that as they have closed dozens of their largest churches here in Australia, the ‘Army’ is in serious decline and will undoubtedly be just a “social” organisation in the future. Needless to say (at 75) my respect and loyalty to this once respected church of God is no more.

    I had been a very strict catholic for 51 years of my life going to mass about 3 days a week, receiving communion each time, praying the rosary daily and having a devotion to mary, going to confession each Saturday and thinking I was good and earning my way to heaven, until the Lord God by His Grace and Mercy opened my eyes to the lies I had been taught by the catholic church which are all satan’s lies and deceit – the broad way that leads to destruction.

    Now that I have repented of my sins and trusted in Jesus’ finished work on the cross, believing that He died to pay the penalty for my sins,the only perfect and complete sacrifice that God provided for sinners, I am a born again Christian, and on the narrow path that leads to Life.

    I love reading God’s Word, the Bible and God has given me wisdom and discernment to know Truth from error. I now realise that the ” jesus” of the catholic church who commands catholics to complete the work he did not finish on the cross, (as I was taught that Jesus’s death was an example that I too must suffer and work if I had any hope of going to heaven) by doing good works, receive the sacraments of the catholic church, attend mass where the false jesus is re-sacrificed on a daily basis and that the pope is God’s representative on earth, is ANOTHER jesus and not the Jesus of the Bible. I was fooled for so many years. I now follow the Jesus revealed in the Scriptures and now realise the horrible truth that if I had died whilst I was a catholic I would have gone to hell as I was on the broad road doing good works that leads to death and trusting and bowing down to idols and statues of a false mary and false saints. This all appealed to my flesh and I thought I was pleasing God. Now the Holy Spirit dwells in me and enables me to do the work of the Lord. “For by grace you have been saved through faith, and that not of yourselves; it is the gift of God not of works, lest anyone should boast. For we are His workmanship created in Christ Jesus for good works which God prepared beforehand that we should walk in them. Ephesians 2 v 8-10.

    What joy and peace now fills my heart. This joy and peace comes from the One True God, the Creator of the world and the One who has guaranteed me everlasting life for now I am truly saved. Thank you Lord for taking me from darkness (the catholic church) and bringing me into Your Light and Truth, a born again Christian. Jesus Christ now is the Light of my life and my Salvation. I am waiting for His precious return.

    “For there is one God and one Mediator between God and men, the Man Christ Jesus, who gave Himself a ransom for all, to be testified in due time.” 1Timothy 2v5 and
    “Nor is there salvation in any other, for there is no other name under Heaven given among men by which we must be saved.”Acts 4v12

    I urge everyone to search the Scriptures and to ask the Lord to reveal His Truth to you and to give you God’s wisdom, peace and assurance of everlasting life.

    Do not trust in man’s wisdom and man made religions, as man will lead you far from God. Trust only in the Word of God which leads you to all Truth. “All Scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, thoroughly equipped for every good work.” 2 Timothy 3 v 16-17.

    I don’t know if this lady is Biblicaly born again according to Acts 2:38, but she is right on. The Vatican is built on the Hill of Vat (hill of soothsayers and fortune tellers) hense the name The Vatican. They never changed the name because it is a false religious teaching. This Pope is a one world socialist and that interferes with the Doctrines of the Bible.

    The formidable movement toward unity with Rome is pushing ahead with increasing speed and momentum. The Pope is busy meeting with heads of religions, Buddhist, Muslim, now Salvation Army!

    How can this be? It is dreadful that another stalwart evangelical organization can follow down this evil route of ecumenism. May our Lord open their eyes before it is too late!!

    This is disgusting! I refuse to visit the Vatican, that is why I will not visit Italy. People wonder why I do not want to see the opulence of the Vatican and its inhabitants. There are some trips to Israel that include visiting the Vatican. There was an atheist who commented that if there is a hell, Rome is built right over it. I pray that the Pope and his entourage will read the Bible, repent and accept Jesus as their only Savior. Jesus paid it all.

      EXCELLENT comment and my sentiment as well. True followers of Yeshua/Jesus must ‘keep looking up’ , for our Redemption draweth Nigh.
