1 Peter 3:18: “For Christ also hath once suffered for sins, the just for the unjust, that he might bring us to God, being put to death in the flesh, but quickened by the Spirit.”
The allegedly ‘Christian’ rock band Rend Collective have given their support to the Popish blasphemy of the Mass by performing at a ‘Christian’ summer camp where the God-defying sacrifice is offered.
They were part of the musical entertainment laid on by the organisers of the ‘Soul Survivor’ camps held in Peterborough and Stafford.
In a ‘Leaders Handbook’ provided on the Soul Survivor website, it is stated that, on the final day of the camp, when a Communion service is held, “Catholic Mass will also be available”.
You can see this outrageous fact for yourself by looking at the image below, an excerpt from the leaders handbook.
This is something we highlighted back in February and warned against, yet Rend Collective have continued on in their path of mean ecumenical compromise.
As we did back in February, we will remind everyone, including Rend Collective, of what the Roman Catholic catechism teaches about the Mass.
It says: “Because it is the memorial of Christ’s Passover, the Eucharist is also a sacrifice. In the Eucharist Christ gives us the very body which he gave up for us on the cross, the very blood which he ‘poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins’.”
Rome claims the Mass is the offering up of a sacrifice of Christ.
This runs totally at odds with what the Bible teaches.
Hebrews 10:11-12 says: “And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God”.
Christ was offered once, He is not sacrificed repeatedly in the Mass, it was a once for all sacrifice.
If we deny that, we deny the gospel as it is Christ’s sacrifice at Calvary which means we may be saved.
Rend Collective, by being happy to take part in a summer camp which offers up such a blasphemous ‘sacrifice’, serve to bring dishonour to the cause of Christ, regardless of how many people like listening to their music.
The ‘Soul Survivor’ camps are ran by Mike Pilavachi, a dedicated ecumenist whom we have previously featured on this page.
In addition to arranging for the blasphemous Mass to be served up at his camps, he has previously been pictured with two leading heretics in the church throughout the world.
They are the Mary worship supporting Arch-apostate of Canterbury, Justin Welby and sodomy-supporting Royal wedding preacher Michael Curry.
And Mike Pilavachi was pictured with them (which you can see, below) at the chief celebration of the utterly ecumenical ‘Thy Kingdom Come’ prayer initiative which is backed by “that Antichrist”, the Pope.
So it is little surprise to see him arranging for the central act of Romanist worship to be incorporated at the camps he runs.
It is, however, very distressing to see it nonetheless.
The same can be said for Rend Collective, not least because of the amount of people, especially the young, over whom they have tremendous influence.
Rend Collective, by their actions, such as performing for the Pope in Dublin last year and now playing at summer camps celebrating the Mass, are telling a generation of young people that it is ok, indeed a good thing, to mingle with the false religion of Rome.
Rend Collective should be using their prominent position to help educate a generation of young people about the dangers of compromising in your walk with God, instead they are promoting compromise.
What a sad state of affairs.
Dear reader, won’t you even speak out against such wilful and repeated ecumenical compromise and help challenge Rend Collective for their failure to stand against religious error.
Psalm 94:16 asks two vital questions which are every bit as relevant today as when they were written.
“Who will rise up for me against the evildoers? or who will stand up for me against the workers of iniquity?”
Rend Collective have resolutely refused to rise up against the evildoers or stand against the workers of iniquity. They have chosen to stand foursquare alongside them.
Therefore, who will stand against the workers of iniquity?
The voices against apostasy and religious error are fewer and hose who are seem to be quieter than in days gone by.
Let the condemnation of the children of Israel by God in the days of Ezekiel not be that of our day and generation.
Ezekiel 22:30 says: “And I sought for a man among them, that should make up the hedge, and stand in the gap before me for the land, that I should not destroy it: but I found none.”
Let us not stand idly by as such damage is being done to the cause of Christ, with the perpetrators claiming it is being done in His name.
Let us ever follow the Scriptural command of Jude v 3 to “earnestly contend for the faith” and abide by the command of Ephesians 5:11.
It says: “And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, but rather reprove them.”
Let us be unafraid to reprove the unfruitful works of darkness and take our stand for God and against the false teachings of Rome and those who side with her.
