An amazing testimony from former Roman Catholic priest Richard Bennett, chronicling his journey from the very belly of the Roman Catholic beast, to the marvelous light of God's free and sovereign grace.
Knowledgeable in languages, history and theology, Richard Bennett, who is now a Calvinist, demonstrates how Arminianism is essentially Roman Catholic heresy -- while showing how the errors inherent in Arminianism and Arminian preaching, especially concerning evangelism, greatly confused and hindered him as he was leaving the Roman Catholic Church.
Free will has long been the mainstay of the Romish Antichrist, but our Reformed forefathers were not fooled by this humanistic lie of the devil.
For example, both Martin Luther (in his debate with the Roman Catholic scholar Erasmus, see Luther's Bondage of the Will) and John Calvin (see Calvin's response to the Dutch Roman Catholic theologian Albert Pighius, in his Bondage and Liberation of the Will) faithfully defended the teaching of Scripture against the Roman Catholic (and Arminian) belief in free will.
In his testimony in this MP3 Richard Bennett does the same, illustrating how the same great battles of the First and Second Reformations continue to rage in our day.
Fittingly, this stirring testimony was given at the Metropolitan Tabernacle in London, where Charles Spurgeon preached.

Great Sermon! let me add this, those who hold to and defend this Romanist heresy of free will need to listen to this message. The truths presented are not from Calvin, they are from God through a man brought out of the heresy of a works-based salvation. May God give them ears to hear.
Great Sermon! Great truths from this man, who was once trapped in a dead religion based on works and 'free will', and now seeks to expose that heresy by giving God's word.
Arminianism leads back to Rome, which is why the Jesuits implanted this heresy in the first place. Many today are still deluded by this tragic error of 'free will' and will not break free from it unless God sets them free. Praise Him for His grace, for it is grace that saves, not man and his 'decision'.
Great Message A strong personal testimony from Richard Bennett, and as an ex-RC priest his exposure of how the arminian theory is similar to the RC works based religion. Well worth a listen or watch the video taken at Metroplitan Tabernacle London.
Richard Bennett spent twenty-one years as a RC priest in Trinidad, WI. After a serious accident in 1972, he began to study seriously the Bible. After fourteen years of contrasting Catholicism to Biblical truth, he was convicted by the Gospel message. In 1986, he saw that...
