Corruptions of the Roman Catholic Church: Beware Jesuit Infiltrations Into Evangelical Churches

I want to make this abundantly clear so as to assuage any suspicions that I am a 'Roman Catholic basher', or even one who is necessarily opposed to Calvary Chapel ministries.

My desire is not to bash, to criticize, to belittle or to speak disparagingly of any church or church organizations and affiliations. I can tell you that my hearts desire, my fervent, zealous, adamant desire is to tenaciously cling to the Word of God, to herald its Truth with confrontation as necessary towards those promoting lies and half-lies (knowingly or otherwise), and to hold fast its doctrines and to practice them by God's enabling grace and empowering Spirit.

Perhaps it's unnecessary to speak of the apostasy (the falling away from the faith in God's Word) these days; any Christian who even occasionally opens their Bible and is aware of what's in the news via TV, newspapers, newsletters, magazines and Internet is at least somewhat aware that the church of Jesus Christ is committing compromises with non-Biblical organizations and religious bodies, that the church is being flooded with heresies and deceptive spiritual experiences which are empowered by demonic spirits (1 Tim. 4:1)

This shouldn't surprise us, but it should (and does) grieve us that the church has fallen into such a deplorable state of carnality, deception and embracing false teachings with little or no discernment exercised to "test the spirits" (1 John 4:1).

A video presentation placed on youtube verifies and summarizes the content of this article. You can watch this here.

It is out of a love for God and His sheep, and a desire to warn the LORD's flock against such "perilous" dangers (2 Tim. 3:1) that I write this article. I know in advance that despite this disclaimer regarding any wish to cause division or to be judgmental, even hateful, I will receive responses accusing me of such.
Be that as it may; as Martin Luther once said,

"Unless I am convinced by the testimony of the Holy Scriptures . . . for I can believe neither pope nor councils . . . as it is clear that they have erred repeatedly and contradicted themselves I consider myself convicted by the testimony of Holy Scripture, which is my basis; my conscience is captive to the Word of God. Thus I cannot and will not recant, because acting against one's conscience is neither safe nor sound. God help me. Amen."

Those who are biblically literate understand that most of the dogmas of the Roman Catholic church are extra-biblical, that is, beliefs and practices whose foundation are not derived from the Holy Scriptures. It is because teachers and pastors of high regard, who know the Word of God, and have taught it faithfully for decades, and whose ministries have blossomed incredibly across the nation, and even across the globe, that I am astonished and dismayed at these recent, and many past developments.

Saturday morning on June 25th, I received an email from co-writer Anne Kisly of The TRUTH Under FIRE ministry; it was an article written by Roger Oakland regarding "a high officer in the Vatican’s Jesuitical, 'Knights of Malta'. William "Jerry" Boykin, former commander of the United States Army John F. Kennedy Special Warfare Center Special Forces Psychological Operations . . ."

The Order of Malta is a religious order of the Vatican. Jerry Boykin holds the title of Grand Chancellor with the Vatican’s Jesuitical, “Knights of Malta”.

Who are the Jesuits, you might ask, and what is the mission of their Order?

"The Jesuit order, otherwise known as the Society of Jesus (S.J.), has been the military enforcement arm of the Catholic Church since it was first founded by Ignatius of Loyola of Spain in 1534 during the reign of Pope Paul III, ostensibly to combat Protestant heresy. And while many feel that the Jesuits are only a sub-order of the Roman Catholic Church and are merely seekers and disseminators of knowledge, they have a much darker history that many people do not know about.

[For a detailed, truly exhaustive history of the Jesuit Order please examine these chapters in pdf from The Berean Beacon web site -

The OATH of the JESUIT -

"When a Jesuit novice is about to be inducted into the higher levels of the Order, he kneels on a red cross before the Superior of the Order. Before him are two flags, the familiar yellow and white flag of the papacy, and the black flag with a dagger and red cross above a skull and crossbones, the flag of the Jesuit Order. On the Jesuit flag is written the words, IUSTUM, NECAR, REGES, IMPIOS. ("It is just to exterminate or annihilate impious or heretical kings, governments, or rulers.") The Superior of the Order hands the novice a small black crucifix which he presses to his heart, and the Superior then presents to the novice a dagger. The novice grasps the bare blade and presses the point to his heart. The Superior, still holding the hilt of the dagger then speaks to the novice.

My son, heretofore you have been taught to act the dissembler: among Roman Catholics to be a Roman Catholic, and to spy even among your own brethren; to believe no man, to trust no man. Among the Reformers, to be a Reformer; among the Huguenots, to be a Huguenot; among the Calvinists, to be a Calvinist; among the Protestants, generally to be a Protestant; and obtaining their confidence to seek even to preach from their pulpits and to denounce with all the vehemence in your nature our Holy Religion and the Pope; and to descend so low as to become a Jew among the Jews, that you might be enabled to gather together all information for your Order as a faithful soldier of the Pope."

The preceding quotes and the list of questions following below, were taken from:

The Jesuit Order - The Society of Jesus (Jesuits)
The complete Oath of Extreme Induction

At the conclusion of the ceremony where a Jesuit Initiate is inducted into the higher Orders the following questions are asked of the newly exalted Jesuit:

"You will then give and receive with him the following questions and answers:

Q: From where do you come?
A: From the bends of the Jordan, from Calvary, from the Holy Sepulchre, and lastly from Rome.

Q: Whom do you serve?
A: The Holy Father at Rome, the Pope, and the Roman Catholic Church Universal throughout the world.

Q: Who commands you?
A: The successor of St. Ignatius of Loyola, the founder of the Society of Jesus or the Soldiers of Jesus Christ.

Q: Who received you?
A: A venerable man with white hair.

Q: How?
A: With a naked dagger, I kneeling on a cross beneath the banners of the Pope and of our sacred Order.

Q: Did you take an oath?
A: I did, to destroy heretics and their governments and rulers, and to spare neither age, sex or condition. To be as a corpse without any opinion or will of my own, but to implicitly obey my superiors in all things without hesitation or murmuring.

Q: Will you do that?
A: I will.

Q: How do you travel?
A: In the bark of Peter the fisherman.

Q: Whither do you travel?
A: To the four quarters of the globe.

Q: For what purpose?
A: To obey the orders of my General and Superiors and execute the will of the Pope and faithfully fulfill the conditions of my oath.

Go ye, then, into all the world and take possession of all lands in the name of the Pope. He who will not accept him as the Vicar of Jesus and his Viceregent on earth, let him be accursed and exterminated."

It is quite obvious that if a Jesuit of a higher Order takes such a vow, then someone holding one of the highest rank and title of Grand Chancellor with the Vatican’s Jesuitical, “Knights of Malta” would take this oath, and or similar oaths swearing allegiance to the Roman Catholic Church and no other authority.

"It is also known that The Knights of Malta openly display the Vatican’s ecumenical intentions as part of the Jesuitical Counter Reformation"

Another vow specifically taken by the Knights of Malta can be read here:

Vows of a Knight or Dame of Malta

So this William 'Jerry' Boykin is a Jesuit? Do we know this for sure?
Yes we do, its on the record at the web site for the Knights Hospitallers of the Sovereign Order of St. John also known as the Knights of Malta, a specific division within the Jesuit Order - look under the Grand Magesterial Chancery at the top of this page, fourth name from the top:

The KNIGHTS of MALTA - William Boykin, Retired Lt. General of US Army, Grand Chancellor

And what's so significant about this Jesuit Boykin? This isn't easy to declare, and by no means do I intend to make any one angry or uncomfortable, I only want to alert the saints to what's happening under our very noses and warn of this Jesuit Infiltration:

The following is from the NOISE OF THUNDER RADIO web site with Chris Pinto, who has posted Roger Oakland's ( article on this disturbing development (some of this article will read familiarly as I've used its material in my own here) -

But before you look at this web site, let me say that as a Christian of over thirty one years, I have been the recipient of solid teaching, edification and sound counsel from the various Calvary Chapels I've attended as my home fellowship as well as a visitor.

Here in Tucson, I've been in attendance of the Calvary Tucson fellowship for about seventeen years. I have left that fellowship for non-obvious reasons that even I myself am unclear about. All I know is that the LORD was directing me out and I have, with no small degree of puzzlement, obeyed.

So let it not be said that I am 'anti-Calvary Chapel'; I regularly post blog articles on my facebook page from the pastor of Calvary Chapel of Roswell, Jim Suttel and am enormously encouraged by them; I've also visited and been blessed at various Calvary's such as Calvary Sierra Vista with pastor Pat Lazovich, and Tri-City Calvary Chapel with John Higgins. While in New York I attended Calvary Chapel of the Finger Lakes (over two decades ago) with Bil Gallatin.

Having said this, I believe that the Calvary Chapel movement is at a definitive 'fork in the road', and each fellowship from the congregation to the leadership must be very careful and discerning as to which of these two roads they traverse.

Some Calvarys are remaining true to the Word of God, teaching it faithfully: this is orthodoxy, or correct teaching and knowledge. Some of these are likewise conducting themselves in accordance to the Word of God so that they are not only teaching it correctly, they are practicing the Word of God in their every day lives, or "walking the talk" as it were: this is orthopraxy, or correct and upright living.

There are other Calvary's that are cozying up to and associating with authors, teachers, and pastors who are either of the Emergent Church Movement or friendly towards it, and since the Emergent Church Movement can be simply boiled down to apostasy, plain and simple, this association is not only unwise, its blatantly unbiblical! *
*(For those who still happen to not know or understand what the emergent church movement is all about, simply type that phrase into any of the search engines of all three sites: The TRUTH Under FIRE or its two sister sites, FROM the MIND of FIRE or this one, The RED PILL Consortium.)

How could these churches go astray in such a manner as this? What influences have they been subjected to that would sway them towards such a movement, that in itself is steering formerly biblical churches and Christians towards an identification with New Age and Roman Catholic beliefs and practices?

Perhaps they had some help of the Jesuit sort? (Please note that not only is this retired Army Lt. General a Jesuit, but also Rick Joyner from Morning Star ministries is as well. Joyner and Morning Star are blatantly unbiblical and his association as a Jesuit to the Pope may not be altogether surprising, but it's well worth noting, and perhaps indicative of the Jesuits mission to cause division and havoc among evangelicals) -


The above article will have a link that will direct you to something called The Oak Initiative which Rick Joyner (as President) and Boyken are leaders of. Under their "Our Purpose" tab, you will find words such as "shift" and "change-agents" which are New Age/Emergent terms. That, and the fact that Joyner and Boyken are leaders (Jesuits both) tells me that this Oak Initiative is a tree that God's axe will bring low and cast down as a bad-bearer of fruit or bearing no good fruit at all!

To date, Greg Laurie still works together with and makes contributions to Rick Warren's ministry and while the Worship Conference hosted at the facilities of CC Albuquerque did not have Leonard Sweet as a speaker, he was still an attendant to the conference.

Lt. General Boykin, a.k.a. Jesuit is also involved in speaking at Epicenter Conferences with Joel Rosenberg (one of which was just completed last year about this time), as are various Calvary Chapel pastors as can be seen at the following link:

Epicenter Conference 2010

Here is Boyken speaking at an Oak Initiative Conference. Everything he says seems to be very good, doesn't it? He seems to be a very convincing Christian man of biblical convictions. Is he conflicted in his vows as a Jesuit? Or does he not adhere to his Jesuit vows? Or is he speaking with the intent of subterfuge, an M.O. that Jesuits regularly employ as documented in their own vows?

Watch this video and see what he has to say:
Boyken Speaking at OAK INITIATIVE

The following google search shows the numerous occassions and events in which William 'Jerry' Boykin has taught in various functions in association with, or directly related to Calvary Chapel churches and (other) ministries:

Lt. Gen. Boykins Speaking Itinerary at Calvary Chapels

Needless to say Boyken seems readily welcome to speak at Calvary Chapels. If he takes his vows of the Jesuitical Orders seriously, and he must, otherwise he would be stricken from those Orders and his rank as Grand Chancellor would be revoked - or worse, then his mission according to these Orders is clear.

If leadership in the Calvary Chapel movement was unknowing about this man's Jesuit vows, they aren't any longer; Roger Oakland's Understand The Times and other Christians in ministry such as Chris Pinto and Lighthouse Trails ministry as well as their readers have no doubt brought this to the attention of Calvary Leadership (as I certainly will do locally here).

However, let us for the moment suppose for the sake of argument that such ancient Jesuitical vows have been obsoleted - that Jesuits no longer spy, conspire, even assasinate for the sake of acquisition of increased power in the Roman Catholic church; that such activities are from a by gone era, never to be re-visited...

Suppose Jesuits are only scholars, educators and high ranking priests - they are still Roman Catholics who are sworn to safeguard and uphold the dogma of that institution. Why then would such a one be allowed to serve along side of biblically oriented pastors when their theologies are opposed if in fact the pastors of Calvary are in the know regarding Boyken? Or, what will be their response once they discover the true religious nature of this man?

For any who doubt that Roman Catholic dogma is that far off the mark, I refer you to the writings of Dave Hunt, in particularly his highly researched and documented book A Woman Rides The Beast (you can find this book and other resources on Mr. Hunt's and T.A. McMahon's web site:

In light of this, the response of the leadership is yet to be seen. I shudder to think that the leadership may actually be cognizant, only too aware of Boykens loyalty to the Jesuit Order; but would they then understand that the Jesuit Order's mission as originally conceived is still intact and operative?

This is why its vital that we pray for the leadership and ask God's intervention to bring everything to light about Boyken and on those grounds dismiss him from any and all association with Calvary Chapel or any other Christian ministries.

As a Jesuit and a high ranking leader himself in the Roman Catholic Church, we who are watching understand that this enormous, wealthy and also far-reaching in its influences institution has the intent of corralling not just Christian denominations and fellowships (including Calvary Chapel ministries) under her wings, but also all religions in order to form a unified, global consortium, eventually leading to what the Bible has declared for thousands of years, a one world religion that is inimicable to biblical Christianity (See Revelation ch. 17 and 18, esp. 17:3-6; 18:2-5). We have seen this repeatedly through the works of the previous Pope, John Paul II and his invitations for religious leaders to join with him for prayer for world peace and cooperation among their respective religions, which began in 1986 and has continued with the present Pope Benedict XVI.

World Religions for World Peace

The non-obvious (for those who don't carefully research its direction and ideology) intention of the Emergent Church Movement is to likewise condition evangelical and biblical Christians to becoming more tolerant and accepting of those practices and policies represented in this papal religion.

Could we possibly see Calvary Chapel as a movement becoming associated with Roman Catholicism, if only in friendly dialogue if not outright alliance? I pray that this will not happen!

On another related note, discernment and apologetic ministries are keenly aware, as are all biblically-literate Christians (they are becoming extremely uncommon in our day, sadly!) of the false doctrines of Dominionism, but what we sometimes don't appreciate is that this idea started with the Roman Catholic church! The idea that we must "take back" from the heathen 'unbelievers' that which rightly belongs to God, and establish His godly rule on Earth - with that rulership being wielded by the Pope of course!

This eventual 'taking back' the entire globe for establishing Christ's (or more precisely, the 'vicar of Christ' i.e., the Pope) kingdom on Earth gels completely with a one world government and religion. Christ plainly declared that His kingdom is not "of [from]this world" but that He Himself would establish it - not the church or any pseudo-Christian institution! Visit the following site to understand the inner workings of all this, and the part that Jerry Boykin is playing in it:

Vatican Psy-Op on America by William Saunders

This 'taking back' of America for Christ is also a mission that David Barton has assumed, and yet even here this conservative Christian (?) has some anomalous assertions and apparently misleading conclusions re: our American History and the direction we ought to go in as the church of Jesus Christ -

David Barton's Connection to Calvary Chapel, Charles Stanley, Mormons and Others

The following quotes are found in the above link:

"The Christian Nation Heresy is one of the most powerful tools to implement ecumenism. It has been born in the U.S.A. and has been set in place by men with motives. These men are the Jesuits who have infiltrated many organizations that once stood for biblical truth. The Jesuit plan is to make the pope’s word the word of a god and the Word of God the word of man.

"The Christian Nation Heresy, it will be shown, was founded by the Jesuits who have a plan to put the USA under the leadership of the pope and his kingdom. For many who profess to be Christian, they have been sucked into this deception without knowing it. Others are sucked into it and know it."

"Brian Broderson is participating in an ecumenical union in Great Britain as he has joined hands with Nickie Gumbel of Holy Trinity Brompton. Gumbel has joined hands with the pope to partner together in the New Evangelization." (emphasis mine)

The New Evangelization is the mission of Roman Catholic leadership and laity to bring the Roman Gospel to Christians in an attempt to sway them towards a commonality, then compliance with the Roman Catholic Church!

You may or may not be aware that yet another Jesuit has assumed the role of chaplain for the House of Representatives:

"A Jesuit will be sworn in as the 60th chaplain of the House of Representatives on May 25, when he will become the first member of his order and second consecutive Catholic priest to serve the House.

As chaplain, the Rev. Patrick Conroy will be in charge of opening House sessions with prayer, coordinating guest chaplains, counseling members of the House community . . ."

“I am also humbled by the confidence my Jesuit superiors are demonstrating in making me available to answer this call to serve the People’s House,” Conroy added (emphasis mine).

So we see, perhaps only what is the proverbial tip of the iceberg in the Jesuit involvment in America, both currently and historically. It would seem that this Order is infiltrating and its members masquerading as 'right wing', conservative Christians who are patriotic towards America and rallying people in a great number of churches towards a call of 'reclaiming America'. Reclaiming it for who though? one must ask.

In this last article much of this is addressed and you can read more about Rick Joyner, Jerry Boykin and others that are associated with this 'great work'.

The Grand Master and the Christian Right

2 Tim 3:1, 5, 12-17 ¶ This know also, that in the last days perilous times shall come. Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away.
Yea, and all that will live godly in Christ Jesus shall suffer persecution.
But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.
But continue thou in the things which thou hast learned and hast been assured of, knowing of whom thou hast learned them;
And that from a child thou hast known the holy scriptures, which are able to make thee wise unto salvation through faith which is in Christ Jesus.
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:
That the man of God may be perfect, throughly furnished unto all good works.

1 Tim 4:1-3 ¶ Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;
Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;
Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.

Philippians 3:17-20 ¶ Brethren, be followers together of me, and mark them which walk so as ye have us for an ensample.
(For many walk, of whom I have told you often, and now tell you even weeping, that they are the enemies of the cross of Christ:
Whose end is destruction, whose God is their belly, and whose glory is in their shame, who mind earthly things.)
For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ:

Act 20:28-31 Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood.
For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock.
Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them.
Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

1 John 4:1 ¶ Beloved, believe not every spirit, but try the spirits whether they are of God: because many false prophets are gone out into the world.

Hebrews 4:12 For the word of God is quick, and powerful, and sharper than any twoedged sword, piercing even to the dividing asunder of soul and spirit, and of the joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Hebrews 5:13-14 For every one that useth milk is unskilful in the word of righteousness: for he is a babe.
But strong meat belongeth to them that are of full age, even those who by reason of use have their senses exercised to discern both good and evil.

Isaiah 8:20 To the law and to the testimony: if they speak not according to this word, it is because there is no light in them.

1 Peter 5:8-9 Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour:
(see also 1 Tim. 3:2)
Whom resist stedfast in the faith, knowing that the same afflictions are accomplished in your brethren that are in the world.

Matthew 24:4-5, 11-12, 23-25 And Jesus answered and said unto them, Take heed that no man deceive you.
For many shall come in my name, saying, I am Christ; and shall deceive many.
And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.
And because iniquity shall abound, the love of many shall wax cold.
Then if any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ, or there; believe it not.
For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall shew great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.
Behold, I have told you before.
