The children gather wood, and the fathers kindle the fire, and the women knead dough to make cakes for the queen of heaven; and they pour out drink offerings to other gods in order to spite Me. (Jeremiah 7:18)
“Let us, then, pass through the Holy Door of Mercy knowing that at our side is the Blessed Virgin Mary, the Holy Mother of God, who intercedes for us.” — Pope Francis 
Those who yearn for spiritual unity with the Catholics are foolish, wicked, arrogant or deceived. Why are people like Mike Bickle, Francis Chan, Beth Moore, and others so eager to expose Christians to this false system?
This is not about disparaging the people who are Catholic, who are simply following what they have been taught. Catholics are our friends, neighbors, even relatives. They are by and large just average, everyday citizens, just like you and me.
That being said, there is a vast difference between Roman Catholicism and biblical Christianity. Those Catholics who are truly saved are saved in spite of Catholic teaching, not because of it. And even then, the question must be asked, if a Catholic is saved, and the Holy Spirit resides within, would this not result in a departure from Catholicism? (2 Corinthians 6:14-17)
Francis Chan was apparently not concerned with this as he effusively praised Matt Maher and Audrey Assad, Catholic musicians who led the worship team during Chan’s session at IHOP-KC’s Onething 2015 conference.
As transcribed in Francis Chan: I just gotta say, man, I still love Mike Bickle, there is also a lot of love and acceptance from Chan for Maher and Assad.
Chan stated, “Man, I see in Matt, I see in Audrey this love for Jesus, the Spirit of God, and I see in them a stance for righteousness, what’s right according to God’s Word.” (15:55 in video)
Several times he acknowledged theological differences. “I love what God is doing here and I understand there’s differences and I don’t know how to get through some of those. I just know I have to.” (16:50 in video)
No, Francis, you don’t have to. (Galatians 1:8-9)
According to Chan, “And I think it’s time for us to get beyond, okay, I’ll sing with them, okay, I’ll worship with them, y’know, okay, I’ll admit that they’re Christians, and go to a biblical stance which says I can’t live without them. I need them. They’re indispensable.” (17:29 in video)
That is a shocking call for unity. Chan is spiritually blind, always a dangerous impediment for a man with so much influence.
Ironically, warning about the tough times to come, Chan said he was worried about how many Christians were casual about some of God’s commands. He read from 2 Timothy 3:
But realize this, in the last days difficult times will come. For men will be lovers of self, lovers of money, boastful, arrogant, revilers, disobedient to parents, ungrateful, unholy, unloving, irreconcilable, malicious gossips, without self-control, brutal, haters of good, treacherous, reckless, conceited, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, holding to a form of godliness, although they have denied its power. Avoid such men as these. (2 Tim 3:1-5)
Although by now he had validated both Mike Bickle and Catholicism, Chan claimed:
See, I’m not giving a talk that’s saying, oh, we should love everyone no matter what they believe, no matter how they live or whatever else. No, there’s a time for disassociating with people. And Paul says it to Timothy right there. (19:25 in video)
But Francis Chan is doing the opposite of Paul’s command to Timothy. He is not urging disassociation. He is encouraging biblical Christians that they can drink from the same spiritual cup as the Catholics. We cannot, at least not if we want to obey the Word of God.

Some years ago Francis Chan prevented former Catholic Mike Gendron from finishing his presentation about Catholicism (Q and A), even though Chan was the one who invited Gendron to speak at his church: READ
