“Let me put it bluntly: Contemplative prayer results in spiritual blindness, and this is why “leaders” such as Rick Warren, Beth Moore, and Mike Bickle are simply unable to comprehend the vast difference between Catholic teaching and biblical Christianity.”
(John Lanagan – The Word Like Fire) According to IHOP founder Mike Bickle:
When I was in my 20s I was asked to pastor a church and I never officially went back to the Catholic Church, but I also don’t feel like I intentionally left it either. At the House of Prayer, I encourage people to learn the teachings of the Catholic saints, as the experts on contemplative prayer, such as Theresa of Avila and St. John of the Cross. (Source)
Call it a false spirituality or some of the intertwined tendrils of a rising counterfeit Christianity, the point is that contemplative prayer, Catholicism, and the New Apostolic Reformation movement are beginning to stream together. Mike Bickle is very much a “forerunner” in this.
