The Gospel Light and Truth Crusade is a mission dedicated to proclaiming the truth of Jesus Christ to a lost and dying world. It was founded in 2013 by Christian evangelist, writer, and missionary, Anthony Keeton, aka The Still Man. The primary purpose of this ministry is the preaching of the truth of Jesus Christ and of the Christian faith to Roman Catholics, for whom we have a special burden, and to awaken the Christian Church.
The ministry is loosely based on an organization founded by Christian evangelist and author, Monica Farrell. A converted Roman Catholic, Ms. Farrell well understood the spiritual darkness in which Roman Catholics live, and the false doctrines and man-made traditions of Rome that corrupt the simple faith in the work of Jesus, and keep the Roman Catholic imprisoned in fear and ignorance. Her burden for lost Roman Catholics led her and like-minded Christians to found The Light and Truth Gospel Crusade, a “mission for the conversion of Roman Catholics and the awakening of Protestants.”
Evangelist Keeton read two books written by Ms. Farrell that greatly affected his understanding of the world and changed the direction and purpose of his ministry. The first was Ravening Wolves, a book about the work of Roman Catholic Action and the USTACHI in Yugoslavia, and their bloody campaign to exterminate the Orthodox Serb population in the Independent State of Croatia. The second was From Rome to Christ, which is the personal testimony of Monica Farrell. The first revealed a side of the Roman Catholic institution that is more sinister and far more bloodier than the one commonly found in history books and in the media. The second revealed the extent to which the Roman Catholic has been deceived by “another Jesus, another spirit, and another gospel.” Keeton understood, for the first time, the deep spiritual depravity, fear, lack of joy, and sense of hopelessness that characterize the life of the average Roman Catholic, and he determined in his heart to do his part to bring them to a knowledge of the truth.
Keeton was already aware of the true nature of Rome from the work of publisher Jack Chick, and the testimonies of former Jesuit priest, Dr. Alberto Rivera, told in the Chick Crusader series of comic tracts, and of former Roman Catholic priest, Charles Chiniquy, from his book, Fifty Years in the Church of Rome. He also had personal experience with the tactics of the Roman Catholic church, having been persecuted by them in Munich, Germany, where he resides, and in St. Louis, Missouri, primarily in response to his efforts to evangelize Roman Catholics and Muslims. The information provided by Ms. Farrell deepened Keeton’s understanding of the determination of the Roman Catholic church to destroy the Christian Church and the Protestant Reformation.
Keeton’s research revealed that the moral decay of the United States through the Hollywood motion picture and entertainment industry, the media, and the educational establishment as well as the undermining of the United States Constitution, was deliberately caused by the Roman Catholic church, and is part of its plan to take over the government of the United States and supplant it with a government completely run by Roman Catholics for Roman Catholics. In this “occult theocracy,” the worship of the Lord Jesus Christ will be outlawed by penalty of death, as the United States and the world will be forced to worship the Antichrist and his idol, the Roman Catholic Virgin Mary. This will signal the destruction of Protestant Christianity: a long-standing goal of the Roman Catholic church.
Moreover, the resignation of Pope Benedict XVI, followed by the election of the Jesuit Pope Francis, signaled that the Great Tribulation is very near: for both events are the fulfillment of Revelation Chapter 13 concerning the Antichrist and the False Prophet, which are Pope Benedict XVI and Pope Francis, respectively. One purpose of this ministry is to warn the Body of Christ of the impending danger of the new Roman Catholic Inquisition.
Lastly, as Jesus said that in the last days, deception would be so pervasive that it would almost fool the elect of God, this ministry also exists to discern truth from error. This we do by “rightly dividing the Word of Truth,” the Holy Bible. We expose the false teachers and their false teachings by comparing spiritual things with spiritual things and revealing those teachings that do not line up with Scripture.
