During his Sunday morning service, Ulf Ekman announced the he and his wife, Birgitta, are becoming papists.

Ekman is the founder of Word of Life, a megachurch in Uppsala, Sweden. News reports and blogs coming out of the nation reveal congregation was “partially stunned” after hearing what was packaged as a “special announcement.” The theme was “follow the Lamb wherever He goes.”

“For Birgitta and me, this has been a slow process were we have gone from discovering new things, to appreciating what we have discovered, to approach and even learn from our fellow Christians,” Ekman says on his ministry website.

“We have as many know, followed Ekman’s steps towards Roman Catholicism since 2007, at times under a lot of ridicule from both members and leadership of the congregation, but also from others within the Christian Community in Sweden,” writes Andreas Glandberger, who operates the think tang.

“Based on Ulf Ekman’s various articles, sermons, statements, and even type of organizations he decided to support financially, a painstaking puzzle has been laid in which the last piece of the puzzle now is in place.”

Glandberger went on to say that “shock, anger, sadness, despair and confusion” among the reactions to the news. Others, he writes, were relieved that Ekman’s long love affair with the Catholic Church finally was consummated openly, which is also a help in theological discussions.

My comment:

When Ulf Ekman converts to Catholicism, the ring is completed for the religious Word of Faith movement in Sweden and Norway.

The danger is that there is no longer possible to distinguish between Pentecostalism (Pingst) and the World of Faith assemblies. All of it is mixed together.

In Norway, all of them are supporters of the The Christian Council of Norway, which has recognized the Vatican II Council of 1965. To few Baptists now stands on the lessons of the Reformation. Hazardous many admire the first Jesuit Pope and join the blind road back to Rome. And off the cliff they will go, many of them traveling on first class.

  1. Like so many fooled souls that perish for a lack of knowledge so goes the great “falling away” and a confirmation we are near at the door of the “end times”. Ekman has swallowed the bait, hook, line, and sinker of Satan and his false church that teaches the “one single sacrifice of Jesus Christ” was not enough. May the Lord Jesus deliver us from this evil. AMEN

    • we have to understand that he (Ekman) reviewed and think of it many times before answering the call of become a Catholic. You cannot say that he is fooled since there had been so much interesting and truth revealing facts about the Catholic Faith. While most of Europe now are become atheists, it is interesting that those faiths of which was not under the faith of the Lord are becoming one with them and understanding the fact that the true Faith that the Lord Jesus Christ built is the Catholic Church. In fact, Sweden was once a Catholic-majority nation not until the Protestant Reformation influenced the monarch and the whole Christendom of Scandinavian region..:-)

      Welcome to the Catholic Faith bro. Ekman, I hope your members will follow you.

      God bless

        It is true that Scandinavia has a dark Roman Catholic past. On my native island, the “Church” stole almost all properties. Only one local farmer managed to keep his property from being taken over by Jesuits and other clergy. During the Reformation, the Catholic Bishop in the city of Bergen was arrested. He was a thief and a robber.

      Anti-Zionism in the Church of Norway and Europe at large, has its root in Replacement theology. The idea that God do no longer hold the Jews as His chosen people. The new people of God, are only those who have accepted Jesus as Lord.

      If you feel that Christians should rule in Jerusalem, than the city is occupied. And the members of the PLO will become your brothers, fighting with “god” to do the needful.

      • I understand that in the past, there were bad priests in the land of Scandinavian region. I know that some of them broke their vows. But think about it, it is not the Catholic Church who created the mess but was the people of whom the church relied in order to cater the needs of the Scandinavian people that time. In reminiscing those past mistakes of some, yes I do admit their abuses and in no ways I will cover them up. But the thing there is that, there is the true faith that was kept by these bad clergies, the church mandated them to be good, it’s just that they were influenced by temptations where everyone of us get lost once we say “Yes” to it, and those clergies are not exempted. Even Jesus was attempted to be tempted by satan, it is only the pure heart of Jesus that led Him to say “NO” to it that those clergies did not do in the past. We have to make ourselves helpful in the heart of our religion. We should be one with faith. Those erring priests should be helped to change and not to abandon the ailing church of the past. We have to encourage ourselves to heal the wounds that brought us to divisions. That is why popes of today are trying to reach those who had left the church and bring them back to the fold. No matter how bad the past is, as long as you know that the faith of our fathers are essential and in line with the teachings of Jesus, those past mistakes will just gone in the wind and can even find a way in order to find solutions in this dilemma.

        Your charisma (as a church police) will help the Catholic Church monitor more those erring priests, bishops and clergies.

        I hope you get the point.

        God bless us all,

        It is wisdom to learn from the past, repent and not copy your own foolishness.

        In Ireland, maybe as many as 150.000 children have been sexually abused in the last two generation, by Roman Catholic clergy men.

        Please read, and leave this wicked religious movement.

  2. It is written: “He that is unjust, let him be unjust still: and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still: and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still: and he that is holy, let him be holy still.” (Revelation 22:11).

    Obviously, this “works” for Mr. Elfman and his household.

    The Roman church has “recovered” more of the “separated brethren” – a success of the policy from the Second Vatican Council (aka Vatican II).

      Ulf Ekman is a man who looks for power. Power over people. Many who were members of his Word of Faith cult in Sweden fell ill. They had to leave Ekman and his flock, to retain their freedom in the Messiah. In the Vatican system, Ekman will find the power he is looking for.

      • Dear Ivar,

        Shalom va ahava B’Shem Yeshua. Thank you for some more of the details which prove out the Scriptures. Toda Rabah.

      • Hi Ivar,

        I know that the news had spread all over the world and I will not deny the sad truth of those bad priests. As I said, we cannot justify that the church is wrong just because there were bad clergies inside it. In fact, most of the priests, nuns, bishops, 3rd order leaders and lay leaders are sincere to their faith. I know why you are saying those stuffs you’ve mentioned because you are concerned on the salvation of man and I will humbly accept the link you posted. It is amazing that we see how human are our priests too right? and the church are not declaring that they are perfect or shall we say impeccable and cannot err. This is the same to pastors who also experienced that kind of dilemma, either be in discreet or declared to the public. We shall not dismiss our countrymen who also committed those acts…and that is because we sometimes fall, you fall, I fall, they fall. Remember, temptations are everywhere, and these temptations are not the actual sin. It is by saying “YES” to temptations that make it evil and sinful. We all are not exempted to it brother..I hope you get the point.

        God bless,

        Flewen

      All the ones who are falling away from the truth, breaks my heart..

      My reply:

      There is a fine balance between sadness and gladness in the present situation, for all truth obeying Christians. Sadness, because we wish all men would find the truth and stay put. Gladness because the gross falling away proves that the Scripture is truth.

      Jesus the Messiah asked if he will find faith on Earth, when He returns? He also warns us that only the few will make it through the narrow gate.

  3. …and….is he now to divorce his wife, for they do not allow their clergy man to be married? Interesting thought, I reckon…
