We present and address:
- Why we must stand with the Reformation and NOT unite with Rome
- Nine reasons why the Catholic system opposes the Bible on such issues as Idolatry, Faith & Works, Papal Authority,etc.
- Current Ecumenical movements that ignore Scriptural commands
- The deception of “Unity” and its promotion by Protestant and Evangelical leaders
- Many concerns facing Bible-believers about Catholicism today
- Solid facts – direct from Roman teachings in the Catholic Catechism – to answer the drumbeat of “unity” being heard throughout the Evangelical world
- A review of the Reformation and the “Reformers Hall of Fame”
We’ll revisit the men who risked life and freedom to stand with the Bible against a corrupt system five centuries ago. The question is: will we stand with Luther, Tyndale, Wycliffe and others? Or will we ignore their sacrifice – and the Scriptures – all for “unity?”
“Unity at the cost of truth isn’t really unity. How can unity be our path if it is actually based in error?” – Eric Barger
Speaker: After spending two decades immersed in the world as a record producer, rock musician, drug addict, and New Ager, Eric Barger is now widely recognized in the area of Christian Apologetics and Discernment Ministry.
He is the author of numerous books, including the best-seller From Rock to Rock, Entertaining Spirits Unaware: The End-Time Occult Invasion (with co-author David Benoit) and Disarming the Powers of Darkness. He has produced dozens of videos detailing various aspects of the Cults, the Occult, World Religions, Current Events, Bible Prophecy, and today’s Entertainment Industry all in the light of a biblical worldview.
Eric has written for USA Today and has been interviewed by numerous print and electronic media outlets, including Time Magazine and Fox News. His articles are now syndicated on many biblically-based prophetic and apologetics websites and blogs.
After hosting his own weekly radio program heard nationally, Eric now serves as the co-host of Understanding The Times with Jan Markell heard currently on over 800 stations. Through the years Eric has been a featured guest on hundreds of Christian and secular programs, such as Southwest Radio Ministries, Christ in Prophecy with Dr. David Reagan, Point of View with the late Marlin Maddoux, and many more.
Through his writing, video productions, media appearances, and the Take A Stand! Seminar series, Eric has sought to refute unscriptural ecumenism, universalism, the curious normalization of Mormonism, Islam, New Age philosophy, and other aberrant religious systems inside Christianity. However, no matter what the topic, the goal has been as our mission motto declares: “to see the Lost Saved and the Church Changed by the Power of Jesus Christ!”
