Ecumenical False Prophet Dr. Ravi Zacharias
By David J. Stewart | December 2014 | Updated September 2019
Galatians 1:6-9, “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.”
Dr. Ravi K. Zacharias is a world renowned philosopher and a New World Order false prophet. I am not writing this article to be unkind, God forbid. I am a born-again Christian and love the Lord Jesus Christ. I never attack people; but rather, false doctrines, false religions, heresies and anything that is harmful to the New Testament Church. Jude 1:3 commands believers to, “earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.”
May I say, you can tell a false prophet by what he doesn't say! We’re living in a time when everyone is striving for religious unity without counting the cost. Kindly, Dr. Ravi Zacharias, speaking at a large congregation of Evangelicals and Mormons in the Salt Lake City, Mormon Tabernacle, in Utah on February 17-18, 2014, boldly stated:
“And so, what brings us together? As has already been said, yes we have our theological differences, but I think it’s commendable that we find a common cause in trying to create a good moral soil in this culture and in this time.”

The preceding statement by Mr. Zacharias is typical of the ecumenical mumbo-jumbo that has poisoned our churches today, which is intended to unite mainstream religious denominations (believers with unbelievers alike) in a common cause. Before the Antichrist can appear, the world needs to be prepared to receive him. In order for this to happen, all of the different influential organizations, churches, groups, institutions and celebrities are being recruited to promote the philosophies of the New World Order (which primarily are unity, cooperation and compromise). In my opinion this is why Ravi Zacharias is extremely vague, shallow and refuses to take a stand against hardly anything doctrinal. I do not question his sincerity, but silence is yellow not golden. There is no wisdom nor honor in beating-around-the-bush, trimming one's sermon, avoiding hot topics and pandering to the audience. Certainly this does not exemplify the Lord Jesus Christ. John 7:7 says the world hates Jesus because He testifies against it, that their works are evil.
Ecumenical compromise is sinful, which is destroying many churches these days. That's the same problem with Billy Graham (or should I say, Billy Balaam). Like other theological reprobates, Ravi (as he is commonly referred to) doesn't warn people about a burning Hell. Ravi is as shallow as can be, which is why false religions gladly invite him to speak for them. I wouldn't give you a dime for any pastor or evangelist who avoids the subject of Hell. Ravi has spoken (he doesn't preach) in over 50 countries. Honestly, Ravi is no better than Jesse Jackson, Pat Robertson, Max Lucado or Joel Osteen. Here is Ravi speaking to Mormons (or LDS, Latter Day Saints of Jesus Christ). The link I have provided is part 1 of 7. I listened to all 7 parts. What a pathetic joke! What a bunch of philosophical BULLCRAP!!! I've never heard a minister say so much without saying NOTHING! Ravi serenades the Mormons! At the end, all the Mormons burst forth in loud applause for Ravi. What wickedness! When a satanic cult applauds a preacher, something is VERY wrong!
Ravi speaks about sin, but Mormons already believe that! He doesn't dare mention Hell-fire, because they don't believe that. He tells Mormons about the cross, but they already believe that too! Effectively, Mr. Zacharias bids Mormons God speed, just as Billy Graham bids Roman Catholics God speed!!! Ravi fails to place any pressure on Mormons to repent of their evil dead works and doctrines of devils. Mormonism is a 100% satanic religion!!! Shame on any professed man of God who refrains from preaching the truth! All Dr. Zacharias is doing is rubbing shoulders with religious unbelievers, encouraging them on their path to eternal damnation!
A man with no hope is far better off than a man with a false hope, because the man with no hope is still searching! Mormons have a false hope. Sadly, Dr. Zacharias comforts Mormons in their wicked unbelief. Zacharias stated to a group of thousands of Mormons...
“It's good to be home! How much more the home that our heavenly Father has prepared for you and for me, and the Lord Jesus said, He was heading there to prepare that place for you and for me. What hope! What hope that fills the soul!” [emphasis added]

Ravi addresses the Mormon group as if they are fellow believers, which they certainly are not. Instead of preaching the truth to the Mormons as he should have, he dipped his sails in shallow compromise. Unbelievable! God is not the heavenly Father of the Mormons, because they are NOT God's children. If you're not a born-again child of God, then you are not a part of God's kingdom. Jesus said in John 3:5-7 to Nicodemus that only by being born-again can any man enter into the Kingdom of God. There are no exceptions!!!
Here's How Unsaved, Satanic, Mormons, Responded to the Lame Preaching of Dr. Ravi Zacharias! Would the Apostle Paul preach like that to reprobate Mormons, remaining silent about their errant beliefs, not mentioning coming eternal punishment, not warning them that they have another Jesus, another spirit and another Gospel? No, Paul would have lovingly let them have it, telling them like it is, warning them that there is no salvation in the Mormon religion. Paul would have pleaded with the Mormons to leave while they still can and run for their life!!!
Preaching THE TRUTH offends people and makes them hate you. Galatians 4:16, “Am I therefore become your enemy, because I tell you the truth?” Telling THE TRUTH offends people and makes enemies. Today's sissy-britches preachers don't take a stand for hardly anything, so they don't offend anybody, and they all have big bank accounts!!! Jesus plainly warned that NO MAN can serve God and mammon (money, wealth). Luke 16:13, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” When money becomes an issue (although nearly everyone denies it's happening to them), they start sinfully compromising their convictions and stand for God. There is no middle ground, it's God or money! Very few pastors are unaffected by the desire for financial security. There's just something about money that once you have it, it has you!!!
Everything that Mr. Zacharias said to the Mormons was agreeable to them. They all stood and cheered, applauding gleefully to his lame sermonette. Unbelievably, Baptist pastors everywhere foolishly think that this is how preaching is supposed to be, impressing the crowd, not offending anyone away from Christ, pacifying the audience. Talk about a back-scratchin', ear-ticklin', pantywaist, pink-tea and lemonade, milquetoast, disgusting, compromiser!!! I wouldn't give you a dime for Dr. Ravi Zacharias' lame preaching. Tragically, I know an independent Baptist associate pastor who adores Ravi Zacharias. GET RIGHT WITH GOD!!!
My friend, Bible-preaching ought to make people uncomfortable, bring conviction, put them on the spot, force them into a corner and require a life-changing decision. Zacharias' lame devotional type message is mere entertainment. When thousands of reprobate Mormons burst forth in applause, even giving Ravi Zacharias a standing ovation at the end of his pathetic sermon, something is very, very, wrong spiritually!!! They'd never invite someone like John the Baptist to preach to them, and if they did they'd wish they hadn't! John would have ripped their faces off with the truth of God's Word!
Here's just one of hundreds of complicated quotes from the preceding sermon made by Ravi Zacharias that loses the crowd totally...
“Just like philosophers try to argue against causality by hitting against the cosmological argument. They try to argue against design by hitting against the etiological argument...”

I thank God for grammatically-challenged country preachers who say “be” instead of “is,” and “ain't” instead of “was,” but they say it like it is! I'll tell you what, I know what the old-fashioned Baptist country preacher is trying to say, loud and clear; but Ravi Zacharias leaves people in the mud, while he preaches in the stratosphere over their heads. Thank God for sensible men like Evangelist Billy Sunday...We don't need more edurcated Bible college wannabe-scholars in the pulpit today, we need simple men who put the cookie-jar on the bottom shelf where the common man can reach it!

Ravi Zacharias preaches to intellectuals, and I seriously doubt if they can make sense of what he says. 1st Corinthians 3:19, “For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with God. For it is written, He taketh the wise in their own craftiness.” Let me quote Ravi's ridiculous terminology to you once again dear reader. ...

Who talks that way? Common people don't talk that way. I have a 4-year earned bachelor's degree in Pastoral Theology from Hyles-Anderson College (1985-1993) and I have absolutely no idea what Ravi just said! I love Billy Sunday's attitude. I want to preach in such simple words that the common man doesn't need to bring a dictionary to grasp what I am saying. Here's the kind of Spirit-filled preaching that gets people saved...
“Repentance don't save you. Calling on the Lord don't save you. You know what saves you? Receiving what Christ done for you on the cross!” —Pastor Danny Castle, a quote from the needful MP3 sermon, "WHY THERE'S A HELL!”
Amen, hallelujah! Praise God for grammatically-challenged country preachers who say “ain't” instead of “is,” and “be” instead of “was,” but the common man knows exactly what is being preached from the Holy Bible!
Ravi Endorses Roman Catholic Priest, Closet Homosexual, Henri Nouwen
Further evidence of Ravi Zacharias' ecumenical apostasy is seen in his praise of Catholic priest, Henri Nouwen (1932-1996), whom the homosexual community idolizes for his struggle with homosexual tendencies. A book was written on the subject titled, “Wounded Henri.” In our ungodly American society today, liberals and lesbians are relentlessly mustering empathy for the homosexual community, who want to be accepted as normal, trustworthy and respectable citizens; yet Bible-believing Christians and the unborn child in the womb are being targeted for extinction. What a crazy nation we live in today! ...
The Downfall Of Evangelist Ravi Zacharias
Then we examined Ravi’s Crash and Burn as he not only accepted an invitation to speak at rank heretic Robert Schuller’s New Age ReThink conference, but that Ravi Zacharias also spoke favorably of Roman Catholic mystic Henri Nouwen, calling him “one of the greatest saints in recent memory.” [emphasis added]
Now Slice of Laodicea and Apprising Ministries are reporting that not only will Ravi Zacharias not apologize or even back away from his endorsement of Henri Nouwen, but his ministry is defending his position.
One of the most shocking parts of this letter written by Margaret Manning was her justification of Ravi’s compromise via the following statement:
“ . . . if it weren’t for the Catholic church you and I would not be here–nor would Christianity.”
Ravi Zacharias has become one of a long line of “public figure” Christians to compromise a little here and a little there until full blown apostasy is reached. What next Ravi, what next?
“Today I personally believe that while Jesus came to open the door to God’s house, all human beings can walk through that door, whether they know about Jesus or not. Today I see it as my call to help every person claim his or her own way to God.”
SOURCE: Roman Catholic mystic Henri Nouwen; Sabbatical Journey, Page 51, 1998 Hardcover Edition.
As you just read, Henri Nouwen is a false prophet, who plainly teaches that people can get into Heaven apart from faith in the Lord Jesus Christ. Ravi also thinks that a gay Catholic priest was “one of the greatest saints in recent memory.” Kindly, but truthfully, Henri Nouwen was of the Devil, and so also is Ravi Zacharias! Galatians 1:9, “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.”
Dr. Ravi Zacharias Bids Mormons God Speed
In part 7 of his sermon, Ravi says at the end, “God bless you,” to the Mormon crowd. He tells them that Jesus is preparing a place for them, a home in Heaven. The truth is that the Mormons are going straight to Hell to burn forever and ever in their sins. Mormons have ANOTHER JESUS, and ANOTHER GOSPEL and ANOTHER SPIRIT (2nd Corinthians 11:3-4). Ravi carefully avoided placing any IF's upon the Mormons, such as, “If you get saved you'll go to Heaven.” Instead, he automatically addressed them as Christian brethren and sisters, which is terrible. The Bible commands Christians not to bid God speed (i.e., God be with you) to false prophets, lest you be PARTAKER OF THEIR EVIL DEEDS...
2nd John 1:7-11, “For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist. Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward. Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”
Billy Graham is a 33rd degree Freemason, as are Mormons leaders. You need to understand that Luciferian occult groups exploit Christianity (which then becomes fake Christianity) to lure people into the New World Order. Please see, Religions: The Occult Connection. Mormons even mention the name of Jesus Christ in the title of their organization, that is, “The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints” (LDS). It's all religious fraud committed by Mormons!
Unbelievably, also in part 7 of the sermon to the Mormon group, Dr. Zacharias speaks about a sensual, sexual degenerate, named Malcom Muggeridge, who lived as a sensual derelict reprobate. Yet, Ravi didn't mention the biggest sexual degenerates of them all—Mormonism's founder Joseph Smith and Brigham Young, who were both sexual pedophiles, polygamists and perverts to the core. Read here to learn the sickening truth about Mormonism.
Satan wants the world's masses to follow just a small handful of major influences. Literally, the Devil is consolidating his false prophets. The architects of the NWO are accomplishing this by watering theology down, corrupting the new Bible versions, making doctrine as vague and inoffensive as can be. The Devil doesn't want to create a one-world religion; but rather, he wants to unite all religions together in support of a universal common ideal, which is to con them into living a religious life of love and faith in a god of forces, without ever being born-again. Daniel 11:38 says the Antichrist will honor “the God of forces.” Ravi is extremely ecumenical, which is the heart of New Age movement. Ravi is guilty of the same wishy-washy plan of salvation as C.S. Lewis, which says that Catholics, Mormons and other false religions can still be saved just so long as they believe that Christ died, was buried and rose (despite all the other requirements that those cults add to the Gospel, which then is no longer the Gospel).
This is why the satanic cult of Freemasonry forbids members in lodge meetings from praying in Jesus' name. Instead, they have created their own false god called “The Great Architect,” which is actually Lucifer. Beware of any professed Christian or religious minister who hobnobs (rub elbows with) false religions and false prophets.
Ecumenism is the unbiblical attempt to unite born-again believers and religious apostates together by focusing on commonly shared beliefs. Ecumenism is sinful. The Bible teaches Christians to divide over truth instead of being united by error, as I will show you in a moment from the Holy Bible. You need to understand that every unsaved Mormon, Seventh Day Adventist, Church of Christ, Lutheran, Jehovah's Witness and Roman Catholic believes that Jesus died on the cross. Many ecumenical prophets, such as Ravi Zacharias, take advantage of this fact.
You won't believe the things Zacharias has said publicly to Mormons, even apologizing to Mormons on behalf of the evangelicals who expose them as a satanic cult. Ravi Zacharias is the Devil's favorite kind of sinister minister—appearing to be a minister of righteousness, while uniting Independent Baptists and evangelicals with the satanic cults (2nd Corinthians 11:13-15). This was the gross sin of the Galatians which compelled God to warn them in Galatians 6:7, “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” It is always the religious heathens who desire to unite with true Christians, and not the other way around.
Listen to this amazing Scripture in Galatians 6:12, “As many as desire to make a fair shew in the flesh, they constrain you to be circumcised; only lest they should suffer persecution for the cross of Christ.” Did you understand that? Religious reprobates (like Catholics, Greek Orthodox, Church of England, Mormons, Unitarians, et cetera) want Christians to join them, because if they join the Christians then they must endure reproach for the name of Christ. In other words, spiritually sick people would rather make you sick too, instead of them becoming healthy. You can join any false religion in the world and not be criticized, but just dare name the name of Jesus Christ (apart from all else) and get ready for all the hordes of Hell to attack you! Nobody minds if you become a Christ-rejecting Muslim or join the Christless cult of Kaballah. That's one way that you can know Christianity and the King James Bible are the right ones... because everybody hates them!!!
Ravi thinks he is wise and slick to make Mormons feel comfortable in their unbelief, as if they are a part of God's family. In reality Mormons are demonic false prophets who've been woefully blinded by Satan. You don't win cultists to Christ by catering to them. The Bible says to rebuke them sharply (Titus 1:10-13), that they may be sound in the faith. The hardest part about getting an unsaved religious person saved is to first get them lost. Mormons need to be taught that they've been deceived by Satan.
Come Ye Out from Among Them Saith the Lord!
There is a true saying that says you can tell a man's character by the company that he keeps. Dr. Zacharias is good friends with apostate Billy Graham and preaches the same shallow message of unity, cooperation and love at the expense of Biblical separation from unbelievers. Here is the Scriptural proof I promised earlier, which prohibits Christians from hobnobbing with unbelievers...
2nd Corinthians 6:14-17, “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.”
Like Graham, Ravi Zacharias is a massive compromiser and false prophet, who is virtually Billy Graham's twin. The Bible teaches the born-again Christian believer to separate from unbelievers, and to expose them (Titus 1:10-13; Ephesians 5:11; 1st John 4:1). The Bible forbids believers and unbelievers from hob-knobbing together as if they have the same spiritual father. Christians have God for their father; whereas the unsaved have the Devil for their father (John 8:44). This is why a Christian ought never marry an unbeliever, lest you have the Devil for a father-in-law!!!
The shameful apostate Harvest Baptist Church (HBC) on Guam invited and honored Ravi Zacharias in June of 2017. WHAT A DISGRACE!!! In so doing, the pastors, staff and members of HBC sinfully bid Godspeed to Ravi and his ecumenical apostasy!!! It is wickedness!!! 2nd John 1:10-11, “If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.” Somebody needs to care about the truth and get upset!!! Well, I'm the fella. Harvest Baptist Church and their religious schools are a curse to the island of Guam and Micronesia, spreading their heresy of satanic Bible versions, heresy of Lordship Salvation, Dr. John MacArthur's heretical Calvinism, heresy of wrong repentance, low moral clothing standards, et cetera. Somebody needs to take a stand for God!!!!!!!
Ravi Zachariah's Caters to Unbelieving Catholics and Mormons
Someone recently asked me what I thought about Ravi Zacharias. I had never heard of him, so I've been doing quite a bit of research. I've been sickened by what I'm discovering about Dr. Zachariah's ecumenical, shallow, lame and unbiblical teachings. Despite saying some really interesting and theologically correct things, Zachariah's core position is to refrain from stepping on the toes of other religious faiths which butcher the Gospel.
For example: When asked if he thought Roman Catholicism is a cult, here's what Ravi said...
“My answer to you is very simple. You follow Christ as best you know how as revealed in the Word of God—and serve Him, and love Him, and honor Him with your life and your heart and in your walk—and that's what you preach to others as well, God will be the ultimate judge of what groups went wrong, and what direction.”
SOURCE: Is Roman Catholicism a cult? - Ravi Zacharias at Texas A&M's Veritas Forum
What you've just read is a bunch of religious bullcrap! What a cop-out! Harvest Baptist Church on Guam bids Godspeed to this wicked false prophet!!! This is not the Gospel message of the Holy Scriptures...
1st Corinthians 15:1-4 says, “Moreover, brethren, I declare unto you the gospel which I preached unto you, which also ye have received, and wherein ye stand; By which also ye are saved, if ye keep in memory what I preached unto you, unless ye have believed in vain. For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures.”
That is the Gospel!!! As our text Scripture passage warns in Galatians 1:6-9, if any man or even an angel, teaches ANOTHER GOSPEL, let him be CURSED!!! Instead of faithfully proclaiming a Biblical curse by God upon unbelieving Mormons, Ravi Zacharias embraces them with apologies on behalf of evangelicals, catering to their satanic sex-perverted religion of ritualistic doom!!!
The truth is that you can follow Jesus Christ the best you can, serve Him, love Him and preach about Him (just as Ravi Zacharias teaches) and yet go straight to Hell, fire and damnation the second that you die...
Matthew 7:21-23, “Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.”
Ravi's unbiblical plan of salvation is so vague that even the satanic Mormons invited him to speak for them. And may I say, shame on any professed man of God who doesn't cry aloud against the damnable lies of Mormonism!!! One day in eternity the Lord will say to every Mormon... I NEVER KNEW YOU!!! (.pdf book).
In his excellent book, “I NEVER KNEW YOU,” Michael P. Bowen states . . .SOURCE: I NEVER KNEW YOU (.pdf), by Michael P. Bowen; by Barbour Books, © 2009; page 77.
“You can live for Christ, you can love Christ, you can serve Him with all your might, time, talent and wealth. You can pray to Him, read your Bible, get water-baptized, join a church, witness to people, and do every wonderful work contained within the realm of Christianity, but if you fail to trust Jesus Christ alone for your salvation, He will “dump” you.”
I do not question the sincerity of Dr. Zacharias, nor of the Mormon congregation (I do 100% doubt the sincerity of Mormon leaders, who are Freemasons). High-level Freemason leaders are all sincerely evil in my humbly Christian opinion. I have discovered links to Freemasonry behind nearly every organized form of subversive evil in the 20th century (including Communism, evolution, war, the immoral subversion of America, corrupt Bibles, false religions and the Federal Reserve Banking monstrosity, to name a few). I love all people, including Luciferian-worshipping Freemasons, but I hate what they are doing and their demonic teachings. Most Freemasons are woefully ignorant and deceived concerning the true nature of their group, which like Mormonism is an organization within an organization.
Some ministers contend that we'll never reach the lost by criticizing their beliefs; but my friend, that is what God commanded us to do in Titus 1:10-13. God said in Titus 1:13 to “REBUKE THEM SHARPLY”!!! If the New Testament Church has to dip its sails, compromise and bring the world into the Church to reach the lost, then we're not really reaching anyone, because they're not coming to the Christ of the Holy Bible.
In 2004, The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS Church) opened its signature pulpit at the Salt Lake Tabernacle to Ravi Zacharias to preach a series of messages. Zacharias delivered a sermon titled, “Who Is the Truth? Defending Jesus Christ as The Way, The Truth and The Life,” to some 7,000 lay-persons and scholars from both LDS and Protestant camps in an initiatory move towards open dialog between the camps.

Evangelical Preaches at Salt Lake Tabernacle
By Carrie A. Moore | Deseret News
November 15, 2004
With Evangelicals and Latter-day Saints sitting together in the Salt Lake Tabernacle for an "Evening of Friendship," internationally renowned Christian philosopher Ravi Zacharias told them Sunday night that Jesus Christ's unique claim upon humanity is that he embodied truth and sacrificed himself for a world that often does not recognize him.
But what many Utahns may remember most distinctly is the sermon that came before it.
Taking the pulpit to speak of the event's historic nature, Fuller Theological Seminary President Richard Mouw addressed a capacity crowd of several thousand, offering a stunningly candid apology to members of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and noting that "friendship has not come easily between our communities." He dubbed the evening "historic" and apologized that Evangelicals "have often misrepresented the faith and beliefs of the Latter-day Saints."
"Let me state it clearly. We evangelicals have sinned against you," he said, adding both camps have tended to marginalize and simplify the others' beliefs.
Historical animosity dating back to the founding of the LDS Church by Joseph Smith in 1830 has heightened in recent years between the two groups, particularly in the 1990s, when several high-profile evangelical leaders asserted that "Mormons are not Christians."
Mouw noted the 200th anniversary of Joseph Smith's birthday next December and several scholarly events planned to celebrate during the coming year. "I hope many in the evangelical community will take part in those events," he said. ...

Some evangelicals criticized (they all should have) Zacharias' decision not to use this opportunity to directly address the “deep and foundational” differences between the historic Christian faith and that of the LDS church. (The only reason that the Mormons invited Dr. Zacharias was because they knew in advance that he would cater to them.) Mormonism is rooted in Masonic rites and rituals and the satanic religion of Kaballah.
Zacharias responded to criticism from evangelicals by asserting that Christians should not immediately condemn Mormonism's theological differences, but “graciously build one step at a time in communicating our faith with clarity and conviction.” Is that what God says in the Bible? Does the Bible teach to remain silent about false prophets and hope that loving them will one day cause them to repent of their unbelief and come to Christ by faith alone to be saved? No, that is not what the Bible says.
In sharp contrast to Mr. Zacharias worldly philosophy of pacifying the demonic cults to Christ, the Bible says...
Titus 1:10-13, “For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers, specially they of the circumcision: Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake. One of themselves, even a prophet of their own, said, The Cretians are alway liars, evil beasts, slow bellies. This witness is true. Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith.”
According to The Christian Post, dated December, 12, 2004, Ravi Zacharias defended his decision to preach to the Mormons at the main Salt lake City, Utah, Tabernacle (Source: Evangelical Defends Decision to Speak at Mormon Tabernacle).
Effectively, Ravi Zachariah is telling people to go ahead and follow the one-world religious movement and let God sort them out. This is the ecumenical foundation of the Beast system of the Antichrist.
In a January 2004 Christianity Today interview titled, “The Dick Staub Interview: Ravi Zacharias's Wonderful World,” Evangelical Christian leader and Watergate conspirator Chuck Colson referred to Zacharias as “the great apologist of our time.” What? Zacharias is so wishy-washy that it's hard to grasp oftentimes where he is going in his philosophy. To say that his speeches are boring is an understatement. Phooey on philosophical dead speeches, I want to hear hard Bible-preaching!!!
The Bible warns us that Satan takes men captive through the use of “philosophy.” Colossians 2:8, “Beware lest any man spoil you through philosophy and vain deceit, after the tradition of men, after the rudiments of the world, and not after Christ.” Roman Catholics and Mormons preach ANOTHER GOSPEL and ANOTHER SPIRIT and ANOTHER JESUS. Something is very wrong when Billy Graham and Ravi Zacharias embrace unsaved Catholics, Mormons and other reprobate religious groups as being Christian, in spite of their reprobate teachings. Consider the following insanely wicked statement which Dr. Zacharias made to a group of thousands of Mormons...
“'Let me state it clearly. We evangelicals have sinned against you,' he said, adding both camps have tended to marginalize and simplify the others' beliefs.”

What a crock of crap! Bless God, as born-again Christians we should marginalize the heretical satanic beliefs of the Mormon religion!!! Have Christians sinned against Mormons by exposing them as a satanic cult? No, of course not, we are obeying God (Ephesians 5:11; Titus 1:10-13). Mormons deny Jesus' deity! Mormons deny the Godhead! Mormons teach that God had sex with Mary and that Jesus had multiple wives! What a bunch of sickos!!! The Apostle Paul said that he wasn't trying to reach men with wisdom or eloquence of speech; but rather, with the plain Gospel (1st Corinthians 2:1-2).
The Cambridge Dictionary defines marginalize as “To treat someone or something as if they are not important.” May I say, anything that exalts itself against the knowledge of God in the Word of God is not important!!! Of course I'm going to marginalize Mormon teachings. I don't marginalize people. God created all men (and women) equal is worth. God doesn't make junk! The Lord loves every human being, which were all lovingly created in God's own image. God doesn't love anyone more than anyone else (Romans 10:11; Romans 2:11). John 3:16 says that God loved the whole world and gave His only begotten Son for all the world. God loves Mormons (as people), but He absolutely hates the Mormon religion!!! Mormons are not Christians! They have never been born-again!
Kindly, I don't enjoy preaching against the
Mormon religion (nor any other false religion, like Seventh Day Adventism
and Roman Catholicism), but I am obligated and command by God to do so.

religion. Shame on Ravi Zacharias! What a wicked compromiser! Mormon
leader and legend in their group,
Brigham Young, was a sex-perverted sicko. How could Ravi apologize to
these people? GET RIGHT WITH GOD!!!
No Man Can Serve God and Mammon
Mr. Zacharias also supports Ray Comfort and Kirk Cameron's heretical ministry...
“Kirk Cameron and Ray Comfort present a timely and gripping series giving passion to the Church and feet to the Gospel. This is truly a 'Wake Up Call' to every Christian to come to terms with his or her mission in this world. This is very well done and wonderfully captures both the classic approach and the contemporary draw to the Reality shows…[it] maintains the integrity of the message while capturing the relevance of the application.”
SOURCE: Ravi Zacharias, the Way of the Master
Ray Comfort preaches a Calvinistic false plan of salvation which says believing the Gospel is insufficient to be saved. Kindly, Comfort and Kirk Cameron propagate the same heresy as John MacArthur and Billy Graham, requiring human effort plus partial faith in Christ for salvation. They say that you're not really saved unless your former sinful lifestyle has ceased, but this effectively makes eternal life a reward, which only comes to those who mean business enough to reform their ways and walk a narrow path of holiness in order to be saved. This is a false plan of salvation. Billy Graham, John MacArthur, Ray Comfort, Kirk Cameron, David Jeremiah and Ravi Zacharias are all hobnobbing together. As the true saying goes, birds-of-a-feather-flock-together! They endorse each other, compliment each other, speak for each other, and they're all making millions of dollars! This is not Biblical Christianity.
The truth is that these sincere men all confuse discipleship with sonship. We have the corrupt new Bible versions and corrupt Greek study aids to thank for leading the churches astray. You get saved by trusting that Jesus Christ died on the cross for your sins and rose, that's all. Whatever changes need to be made in your life after you've been saved is God's department, and you can be assured that He will attend to it. Biblically, there are no obligations to change, reform, forsake the world, turn from sinful behavior or surrender to Christ's Lordship to be saved. Eternal life is a free gift (Romans 5:15, 6:23; Ephesians 2:8-10). Salvation is received, not achieved.
In 2013 Ravi's salary was $144,859. His ministry's organization is named, Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM), which is 2013 took in a total revenue of $18,054,023. God is disgusted with so-called Christian “ministers” (which means servant) living high-on-the-hog off the ministry. In my humble opinion this is heathendom, not Biblical Christianity.
With all the poverty in the world, and missionaries struggling to survive, it's sickening to see Ken Ham rake in $20,000,000 a year, and Ravi Zacharias' ministry rake in $18,000,000 a year! I'm tired of ministers making ridiculous amounts of money! According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the median wage for workers in the United States in December 2013 was $786 per week or $48,872 a year for a 40 hour work week. In my opinion, ministers serve themselves more than anybody!
Billy Graham's salary last year was $633,722! That's just his personal salary!!! It's not difficult to see why these men are often one issue people and don't stand for hardly anything! Brother, if I had my way, no preacher, evangelist, missionary or minister in any capacity would be allowed to make more money than what he needed for his basic needs to survive. I'll be back in a minute, I need to go vomit!
It is my opinion that the love of money is always the reason, as the Holy Bible teaches in 1st Timothy 6:10. Jesus plainly warned that NO MAN can serve God and mammon (money, wealth). Luke 16:13, “No servant can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.” But you say, I know many people who are making money from their ministry. Yes, but they are not truly serving God. Instead, they are saying all the right words to all the right religious groups to get all of their support and money. Zacharias is sought all around the world, because he doesn't take a stand for hardly anything. On his website, he refuses to take a doctrinal position for the timing of the Rapture, nor the age of the earth, nor what he thinks about Roman Catholicism.
The bottom line is that the most vague ministers rake-in the most money from woefully ignorant religious people worldwide. I wouldn't give you a penny for a preacher who doesn't stand for anything, hiding behind a shallow profession of faith, that is so watered-down that even unsaved Mormons and Roman Catholics support and invite him to speak to their members. And to add insult to injury, Zacharias dare not step on their toes, but instead apologizes to Mormons on behalf of faithful Christians like me who mash on their toes with THE TRUTH!!! I make no apologies for proclaiming the truth of God's Word. My friend, you cannot make God cool and hip to the world!!! There is no fellowship between light and darkness, nor between God and the Devil.
You must choose sides. God vomits out lukewarm
fence-straddling ministers like Ravi Zacharias. God said in Revelation 3:15-16 that He wants us hot or cold, but not
lukewarm. There's nothing more nauseating than a coward or compromiser for
a preacher. Kindly, most pastors, evangelists and ministers are cowards
and compromisers. I thank God for the contenders who “earnestly contend
for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints” (Jude 1:3).
Dr. Zacharias Calls Heretic Joyce Meyer, “A Great Bible Teacher”!
Someone asked me this week what I thought about Ravi Zacharias, a world renowned evangelist. Quite frankly, I think he's a sad joke, a compromiser. Here's a YouTube video of Zacharias calling false prophet Joyce Meyer “a great Bible teacher.” No genuine man of God would call Meyer a great Bible teacher. Mrs. Meyer is a total false prophet, teaching that Jesus paid for our sins in Hell and not the cross. The Holy Bible says that Jesus paid for our sins on the cross with His blood. Colossians 1:20, “And, having made peace through the blood of his cross, by him to reconcile all things unto himself; by him, I say, whether they be things in earth, or things in heaven.” Jesus was not tormented by demons in Hell for three days as Meyer errantly teaches (source: Joyce Meyer, “The Most Important Decision You'll Ever Make,” page 36). For an excellent exegesis on the subject of Hell, please see, “A Biblical Examination Of Hell” (.pdf book) by Pastor Max D. Younce.
According to heretic Joyce Meyer, Jesus needed to be born-again. That is blasphemy! The Lord took the place for our sins on the cross of Calvary. Jesus never sinned, not even in thought. Jesus was God incarnate (in the flesh) and didn't need to be saved as we sinners do. And by the way, all women preachers are unscriptural! To learn more about the heresies of Joyce Meyer, please watch this 48-minute video.
Ravi Zacharias is a dirty compromiser as far as I'm concerned. Zacharias won't take a stand for any controversial subjects. He refuses to take a position on the age of the earth or the rapture. That by itself doesn't make him a heretic, but what really concerns me is that he refuses to take a position on the Roman Catholic Church (the biggest satanic cult in history!!!). You can identify many false prophets by what they teach, but you can identify ALL FALSE PROPHETS by what they DON'T TEACH! On his website, Zacharias states, “We believe in the Holy Spirit, the holy catholic church...” Whoa!
Ravi Zacharias in an interview was asked this question: What are the most influential books you have read? And this is part of his reply:
I think the most influential books that I have read generally come from authors who introduce me to many other authors other than themselves. If I were to list a handful of writers who have had a profound impact on me I would say Malcolm Muggeridge, G.K. Chesterton, C.S. Lewis…In my present reading, I think the book that I have most recently picked up which has thoroughly impressed me is one that is called ‘Asking the Fathers’ and that is by Alfred Squire. He is of English stock and Cambridge…Oxford educated I think and now lives in the U.S. West Coast, he's a Dominican monk.
SOURCE: Ravi Zacharias Interview
These are the men that Ravi says have had “a profound impact” on him:
One of the authors Zacharias mentions is Malcolm Muggeridge, who was the man who introduced Mother Teresa to America. At age 79, Muggeridge was received into the Roman Catholic Church (RCC). This is the ecumenical garbage that is the foundation of the coming Beast system of the Antichrist. I wouldn't give you a dime for Ravi Zacharias' type of shallow religious devotion.
RZIM (Ravi Zacharias International Ministries) are extremely ecumenical. RZIM's message is so shallow that it includes Roman Catholics as Christians...
“Anyone who will believe and trust will be welcomed into the family of God through the coming of His Son into the world.”
The preceding statement leaves out the cross upon which Christ died. It also leaves out Christ's burial and resurrection. And may I say, the Gospel message becomes totally invalidated if you add any human effort to it!!! The Gospel plus water baptism equals spending eternity burning in Hell. The Gospel plus turning away from your sinful living equals spending eternity burning in the Lake of Fire (Gehenna, Hell). Salvation is not doing your best, it is having Christ's best put to your account through receiving Him by faith. Only God knows how many tens-of-thousands of people will spend eternity burning in Hell, because apostate ministers like Ravi Zacharias refused to tell them the whole truth that human effort plus partial faith in Christ is a false plan of salvation that leads to damnation in Hell.
Kindly, Dr. Zacharias is riding the religious bandwagon, profiting handsomely from the business of Christianity. If Zacharias spoke the truth as he ought, he wouldn't be raking in $18 million a year (and he knows it). I have never made a penny from my labors for Jesus Christ, and never will. I preach the truth for my precious Savior. I am serving God, not mammon. That is why I preach the truth, warning people about the satanic religions of Mormonism and Roman Catholicism. The great need of the hour is preaching preachers! No preacher who profits from his so-called ministry will ever be the preacher that God wants or expects him to be!
Zacharias is a big supporter of apostate Billy Graham. Of course, Graham is the biggest sellout of the 20th century, who has done more to unite Christian evangelicals with the satanic RCC. The consequence is that many evangelical churches are now teaching a false works-based plan of Lordship Salvation. Every local New Testament church ought to be exposing the RCC as of the Devil. Check out what Billy Graham teaches. May I say, the Biblical Gospel EXCLUDES all forms of human effort and self-righteousness!!! This means that the Roman Catholic Church is of the Devil, satanic to the core!!!
I do not intend to be unkind in any way, God knows my heart, but I recommend that my web visitors steer clear of Ravi Zacharias and his apostate ministry. The Word of God calls the preacher a “soldier” of Jesus Christ (2nd Timothy 2:3-4). The foolish mentality that we ought to love the enemies of the Lord by remaining silent, go along to get along and pacify them is of the Devil. Try that on the battlefield in a war and see how it works. See if your enemy eventually defects to the other side or surrenders because you laid down your weapons and chose not to shoot at them. Buddy, you'll lose the battle and the war! We are living in wicked times. Hollywood is not the only sewer these days, so also are most churches, Bible colleges and religion organizations.
It would be such a blessing if every so-called “minister” (servant) were actually required to earn a living, instead of manipulating Christianity for a buck. I'm not talking about labouring pastors who earn their keep. I'm talking about compromising scumbags who deliberately preach a shallow message to sucker more religious groups into supporting them. This is the only way apostate ministries can profit millions of dollars a year. Check out Charity Navigator for RZIM and you'll notice that they refuse to display their 990 tax form publicly. Gee, I wonder why? The answer is because then you'd know where they money goes! God deliver us from this wicked generation of mammon-seeking preachers!
