Man (An Ex-Roman Catholic Priest)
I pastor an independent charismatic church. Pastor Worley’s visit there in December, 1979 revolutionized the ministry here and after he left a heavy anointing for deliverance remained. For about two weeks, morning and night, we continued to cast out demons after our teaching sessions and there were wonderful fruits.
I myself received further deliverance from evil spirits in me because of the doctrines and practices of the Roman Catholic church which were contrary to the Word of God. The gift ministry I originally received with the baptism in the Holy Spirit in 1964 had gradually faded away; however with this deliverance, it was restored and flowed freely. The demonic spirits of Catholicism had hindered and choked off the flow of the Holy Spirit in me. We also ministered deliverance to another former priest and he was freed from the same things which had bound me. Many other former Catholics received freedom too. Although this may seem shocking and blasphemous to a Catholic person who does not know the Word of God, I assure you it is true.
I have written some tracts to show plainly that the Catholic church is only an imitation of the true Church in Scripture. If religious teachings are not in harmony with God’s Word they are lies, and if lies, they are of the devil. Anyone who believes and practices lies must have deliverance from these false teachings and erroneous practices.
For example: infant baptism is a false doorway to salvation; confirmation is counterfeit Pentecost; and there is nothing anywhere in the Bible comparable to the Roman Catholic doctrine of the priesthood. The whole concept of the priest (according to Rome) is distorted and utterly devoid of Biblical authority or precedent. Likewise the Papacy is nowhere found in Scripture and the whole doctrine is flatly contradicted by it. Prayer to saints (who are actually masquerading demons) and the exaltation of Mary are also forbidden by the Word of God.
The only Biblical references to the Catholic Church are found in Revelation 17 and 18. It is a part of the harlot religious system which has a form of religion but has become totally demonic. How I praise God for pouring out His Spirit on those in the Catholic Church today.
The entire Body of Christ needs purging from all which is not Biblical. My experience and advice to any caught in any system resisting or rejecting scriptural doctrine and authority is to leave it. Seek a spirit-filled Christian fellowship which stands on the Word of God, not the word of man.
Before the meetings with Pastor Worley, I had practiced deliverance, but only occasionally. He introduced and taught effective methods to force demons to manifest and leave. This does a very thorough work and draws everyone directly into participation. I am completely convinced of the crucial need of this drastic ministry.
I pray that all pastors will move into this neglected work for it is sorely needed in every church. Those who fail to do so will someday have to answer to the Lord for it. In my experience nothing else has brought me into such a vision of and contact with reality as this ministry of casting out evil spirits. It results in a deeper walk in the Spirit by rooting out and destroying the roots of problems which otherwise defy solution and healing.
