23 hours after posting this image to his Facebook public figure page, Kris Vallotton’s post had garnered 3,127 “likes.” That’s at least 3,127 people on Facebook who are applauding Vallotton’s unbiblical, ecumenical efforts.
Vallatton boast of 1,500 “new believers” in France. What we don’t know is what these 1,500 souls are “believing.” If it’s Kris Vallotton’s gospel, then they’re still lost.
Vallotton also rejoiced that “many catholic priests” are present. They are not counted among the new converts, which, if they had truly come to genuine repentance and faith in the real Jesus Christ, would have been something over which to rejoice. Vallotton counts them as co-laborers, fellow ministers.
“Speaking to 1500 new believers in France. Very exciting. There are many catholic priest here joining us for ministry. Extreme favor! #kvm”
If the Roman Catholic priests in question follow the teachings of the Roman Catholic Church, they are not Christians. They are apostates. They are blasphemers of God. They are idolaters. And if they are adherents to the blasphemous doctrines of Rome, then Kris Vallotton sinned against God by seeing the priests as co-laborers in ministry.
Do not be unequally yoked with unbelievers. For what partnership has righteousness with lawlessness? Or what fellowship has light with darkness? What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever? What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said,
“I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them,
and I will be their God,
and they shall be my people.
Therefore go out from their midst,
and be separate from them, says the Lord,
and touch no unclean thing;
then I will welcome you,
and I will be a father to you,
and you shall be sons and daughters to me,
says the Lord Almighty.”
Kris Vallotton can justify engaging in spiritual enterprise with Belial, he can rationalize presumed light having fellowship with darkness, because the Word of God is not Vallotton’s authority. Vallotton’s authority is his feelings–the impressions, which over the years, he has been able to convince himself are from the Holy Spirit. Words of knowledge, prophecies, and the rest of his subjective, spiritual arsenal is what leads Vallotton to believe “ministering” with Roman Catholic priests is a good thing. It’s certainly not Scripture.
Vallotton’s post is yet more evidence that Bethel Redding is an apostate group. One must deny the Word of God and the God of the Word, one must deny the gospel and the Christ of the gospel, in order to enjoy ministerial partnership with Vatican City’s representatives. Such is the behavior of an apostate, not a Christian.
Some may think “apostate” is too strong a word. Is it? What else do you call someone who sets aside the truth of God’s Word and the gospel of Jesus Christ to partner with those who would like crucify Christ if today’s was the world in which Jesus first ministered.
