Francis Chan Says That the Holy Spirit is Moving Baptists, Pentecostals, and Catholics to Worship Together

Francis Chan, who has been moving decidedly ecumenical in recent years while abandoning the distinctions that differentiate biblical Christianity from other sects including Roman Catholicism, is once again preaching a gospel of superficial unity between various, contradictory denominations that call themselves “Christian.”

Chan, who made our False Teacher of the Day #22, has embedded himself with Roman Catholics, charismatics, and has embraced such spiritual folly as tongues, prophecies, and even faith healings. At one ecumenical event with Roman Catholics, Chan removed his shoes on stage while several Catholic priests pray over him. At the same event, Chan declined to share the gospel with a Catholic, stating “I don’t believe the Holy Spirit wants me to.” Chan also has embraced the Roman Catholic heresy of transubstantiation.

In fact, it is only by his embrace of transubstantiation that he is able to come up with this crazy idea that somehow, communion is “intercourse” with God—and sadly, I know that there are people who would defend him for saying this. But I find the terminology perverse, at best, and reduced to its logical conclusion, rather blasphemous.

But with Chan’s new ecumenical take on spirituality, one has to wonder, when will he join and unite with other religions, including Islam, since he’s in spiritual intercourse with almost every sect of Christendom already. Why not just open the gates even wider?

In Chan’s sermon at the Send Conference which was posted on his YouTube channel recently, he argues that Jesus’s call to Christian unity has nothing to do with being of one mind and accord, but rather, about anyone who lays on their face and names Jesus. According to Chan, this can be Baptists, Catholics, Charismatics…and I don’t see why not Mormons, Jehovah’s Witnesses, and even Hebrew Israelites, for that matter. And, according to Chan, the Holy Spirit is behind this movement and he believes he might see this in his lifetime.

Sadly, Chan is probably correct—but to be giddy about this demonstrates that one actually has no idea who God is. God will not be mocked (Galatians 6:7), blasphemed, or have His gospel twisted or perverted. God demands that we worship Him in spirit and in truth (John 4:24). And Jesus’s call to unity is for Christians to be united around the truth, unity of mind is an often repeated call in Scripture:

I appeal to you, brothers, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that all of you agree, and that there be no divisions among you, but that you be united in the same mind and the same judgment. —1 Corinthians 1:10

Finally, all of you, have unity of mind, sympathy, brotherly love, a tender heart, and a humble mind. —1 Peter 3:8

Complete my joy by being of the same mind, having the same love, being in full accord and of one mind. —Philippians 2:2

How can we have unity of mind if we believe contrary things about the gospel? Chan never actually answers that. But leave it to Francis Chan to lead people astray and add this as one more reason to mark and avoid him as a false teacher not to be united with.

I appeal to you, brothers, to watch out for those who cause divisions and create obstacles contrary to the doctrine that you have been taught; avoid them. —Romans 16:17
