Conversation with Last Days Ministries
first part is an email request to an evangelical ministry.
The second part is their answer.
I remember reading some of your old tracts. One series was on Roman Catholicism. I
did not see this offered on your website, but these were excellent tools for
evangelizing and/or teaching. Do you still have some of these? I am trying to
get together as many different types of tracts to hand out this coming year. The
Catholics have deemed it "J2K" for Jubilee Two Thousand. Many of the
churches in my area are going in for ecumenism. They plan to hold rallies in
Sacramento, CA, where a major push for unity at any price is building. Hope to
hear from you. Please include prices. God bless.

Re: Old tracts I remember
in the precious name of Jesus! Thanks so much for writing and sharing your
request with us. We have not distributed the Catholic Chronicles for many years
now. We feel we would not have discontinued them unless we felt this was the
Lord's direction for us. Although the American Tract Society will be reprinting
and distributing most of our tracts, in keeping with the spirit of the decision
to stop distributing the Catholic Chronicles, we are not giving permission for
anyone else to reprint or translate them nor are they available from any other
We have never believed that the Catholic Church is a cult in the
same way as Mormons etc. ----- (I CERTAINLY do NOT understand
WHY ??? - The Editor ???????)
We would like to repeat a notice that Keith wrote when originally
writing the Catholic Chronicle series. "In pursuing this subject, I want to
make it COMPLETELY understood that neither I nor anyone else at Last Days
Ministries has anything at all personally against Catholics. WE KNOW OF MANY
LOVING, COMMITTED AND SINCERE BELIEVERS AMONG THEIR RANKS." ...
"Although it might be unavoidable to have given that impression, it was
never our desire to be thought of as 'one of those anti-Catholic
the "official" doctrine of a church body is something other than what
is being preached there. That is, there is an inconsistency between their
written creed and what is practiced. The bottom line is to share the truth of
God in all humility and love so that it is Christ within us and His love that
draws people to a saving knowledge of Himself. We are sure that a personal
approach, using an opportunity to express Christ's love, is the better and more
excellent way as expressed in I Corinthians 13.
you are looking for reliable scripture-based information about the Catholic
Church, we would suggest that you obtain pamphlets explaining the scriptural
interpretation of those various doctrines with which most non-Catholic groups
differ. These pamphlets can be obtained from a Catholic
TAN BOOKS AND PUBLISHERS, INC., P.O. BOX 424, ROCKFORD, IL 61105.
At that time, you can see the differences between their interpretation
and your interpretation of certain scriptures before differing with your friends
and relatives who might be members of the Catholic Church. We understand your
desire to share with those who do not know the Lord Jesus, but we believe it is
important to show your love and interest in them first. A wise man once said
that people don't care how much you know until they know how much you care.
We really find that to be true. We hope you will accept this in the spirit of
love in which it is meant.
we are no longer publishing a printed Magazine, Last Days is still active in
bringing our ministry materials to many and we are still continuing to work on
ministry projects (like the four new releases of Keith's music). We are
responding to those who want us to remain a source of Christian encouragement
and we are now in the process of greatly enlarging our Web Site. We'll be
offering more ministry materials, Christian articles, opportunities to interact
with fellow Christians, opportunities for non‑believers to learn more
about Jesus, etc. It will be like an online Newsletter and much, much more.
Later, as the Lord leads, we will be doing other projects and events. So keep in
touch and, if you have internet access, don't forget to check our Site from time
to time (www.lastdaysministries.org).
