Ulf Ekman is the pastor of a Swedish church Livets Ord (Word of Life) in Uppsala which started back  in May 24, 1983

Ulf trained at Kenneth Hagin Rhema Bible Training Centre in USA.  Therefore he is a Word of faith teacher.  However in recent years Ulf is seeking to take his church in a new direction.  Ecumenical movement has in recent years seen many evangelical Pastors sign up to some form of unity with Rome.  This report clearly suggests Ulf is indeed heading in that direction.

We are going to celebrate Roman Catholic mass». 6.000 people was gathered at the Word of Faith Oase Sumer camp in Borås in Sweden. Ulf Ekman has opened up the Church for Rome. Together they will promote the coming end time false religion.

The head of the Word of Faith summer camp in Borås is the well know preacher and pastor mobilizer Ulf Ekman. To a Catholic blogger, the camp organizers confirms that the campers will be «celebrating» the Roman Catholic mass. «The Catholic Mass (Eucharist) will be celebrated on two occasions », says Jan Hallquist, who coordinates the Oase camp.

The ecumenical gathering will be wide. An Orthodox priest and a Messianic Jew will attend. The Swedish Christian Daily reports that Ulf Ekman on Saturday used the camp to apologize.

«There are issues I have been responsible for. I will not go into details, but I apologize. And I will take up the responsibility to make a deeper union in the body of Christ», said Ekman and was applauded.

«To remain in Christ, is one of the challenges given us in the book of Revelation, without being afraid. The truth is that there have always been crisis like this. Christians has to move away from the belief that Christianity only is about individuals».

I myself am abhorred by the fact that they are inviting known mythomanian Benny Hinn. As if it was not enough with all his lies (that he has been telling for decades and been repededly caugh in), he is also in my opinion defiling christianity as a whole.

I am one of the few in our family that is critical about what Word of Life is doing. Ulf Ekman has been going closer and closer to the Catholic faith the last few years, claiming Jesus’ mother is an eternal virgin, the pope is a spiritual leader to respect, and other things not common in evangelical or prosperity gospel churches.

Since it is my family that runs this business (because it is more a business than a church, according to many) it is hard to know how far to go in my criticism. My wife is a member of Word of Life, and is right now sitting in a 6 hour queu to get in to the Benny Hinn service. But just so she can see the spectacle.

I think many will leave Word of Life chuch now when Ulf Ekman has shown such bad judgement and AGAIN invited Hinn dispite full insight into Hinns private sfear. They are close friends.

I would like to see the allegations against Hinn substantiated before I take them as fact, tough. Still, Hinn should take a time out. Ulf Ekman said in Swedish newspaper “Dagen” the day before yesterday, that they “were many that knew about Hinns problems in their marriage. The shock Hinn said he felt about the devorce was probably about the fact that she FILED for devorce”. In other words, Hinn was not shocked that thier marriage was in jeopardy, even though that was what he was communicating after the fact

Benny Hinn Like Ulf are all WOF believers and endorsers of the now Late Kenneth Hagin and Word of faith Teachings,  Both appear to have growing interest in Roman Catholicism.  Both are ecumenical in their ministry.  It might seem strange that anyone who would call himself a Christian Minister would become entangled with any relationship with Rome.  But it is unlikely that Ulf Ekman was genuinely saved.  I say this because as a Christian our first love is for the truth.  No true Christian would willingly participate in a pagan practise.  In the mass the belief is that Jesus can be manifested at the hands of a priest.  The literal body and blood is meant to materialise in the hands of the priest.  Later this wafer Jesus will be kept in a biscuit tin for later consumption.  The trick is that the person who partakes of this waver must believe with all his body soul and mind that he is eating Jesus or there will be no benefit to his consumption.  So if there is even the slightest thought that the weaver is really only a weaver then there is no advantage.  But if the weaver is really the true body and blood materialise then it would not matter what his mind thinks.  He should be able to see the blood dripping of the hands of the priests and the body with all its bloody components there for all to see. 

 The priest believes that he can sacrifice Jesus all over again and again and again.

1 Cor 15:3 For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that Christ died for our sins according to the scriptures;

Heb 9:28 So Christ was once offered to bear the sins of many; and unto them that look for him shall he appear the second time without sin unto salvation.

Once to bear the sins of many.  He now stands before the father as our high priest interceding on behalf of his people.  The Catholic Church does not understand that the mass is invalid because Jesus cannot be summed down from heaven. 

Heb 10:12-14 But this man, after he had OFFERED ONE SACRIFICE FOR SINS FOR EVER, SAT DOWN ON THE RIGHT HAND OF GOD; From henceforth expecting till his enemies be made his footstool.  For BY ONE OFFERING HE HATH PERFECTED FOR EVER THEM THAT ARE SANCTIFIED.

There is no need for another sacrifice. or even a continual sacrifice.  Jesus set the record straight on Calvary.  The words “it is finished” said it all.  He does not need to say again and again to repeat those words.

The Catholic Church has set things up in order that those who enter their doors are forever bound to the skirts of these priests.  For without the priests how can they attain their weaver Jesus?  But without the truth this weaver Jesus cannot save them.  The priests are as damned as the people they serve.

      Obviously you know very little about catholism. I was once like you full of what others say about the church. As ULF found the truth so did I, am home at last in the church founded by Christ and his apostles. Seek and you too shall find thats beenunder your nose. Start with 87 volums of church fathers.

    The Sacrifice of the Mass: 
    Why do some believe that Christ is sacrificed again and again in each and every Mass, when Scripture plainly that He was sacrificed on Calvary once and for all? Heb 10:10 

    Many do not realize it, but Christ Himself offered the first Mass at the Last Supper when He offered (sacrificed) Himself to His Father in an unbloody manner, that is, under the form of bread and wine, in anticipation of His bloody sacrifice on the cross to be offered on the following day. In the Mass, Christ continues to make that offering of Himself to His Father, by the hands of the priest. “And while they were at supper, Jesus took bread, and blessed, and broke: and gave to his disciples, and said: “Take and eat. This is my body.” And taking the chalice, he gave thanks, and gave it to them, saying: “All of you drink of this. For this is my blood of the new covenant, which shall be shed for many unto remission of sins”, Mt 26:26-28. 

    Christ ordered His Church to perpetuate that sacrificial rite for the continued sanctification of His followers, saying, “Do this in remembrance of me,” Luke 22:19. 

    The Catholic Church complies with His order in the Mass. The Mass is a re-enactment of Our Lord’s one sacrifice of Calvary. It is that same sacrifice, not another, Heb 10:12. 

    We, are in time, and to us it would seem that this one sacrifice was consummated 2000 years ago. GOD, however is outside of time and space.Everything is now in GOD’s eyes, and so we are taken back to that one sacrifice as if it were happening now at each and every Mass.The Catholic Church teaches that the sacrifice on the Cross was a complete and perfect sacrifice of the Lamb of GOD, offered once. St. Paul bears witness that the sacrificial rite which Christ instituted at the Last Supper is to be perpetuated, and that it is not only important for man’s sanctification, but is the principal factor in man’s final redemption. 

    In 1Cor 11:23-26, St. Paul told how, at the Last Supper, Our Lord said: “For as often as you shall eat this bread and drink the cup, you proclaim the death of the Lord until He comes.”During the Breaking of the Bread, we say twice, “Lamb of GOD, you take away the sins of the world, have mercy on us,” and a third time, “Lamb of GOD, you take away the sins of the world, grant us peace.”Thus at every Mass the faithful have a new opportunity to worship God with this one perfect sacrifice and to absorb more of Christ’s saving and sanctifying grace of Calvary. This grace is infinite, and the faithful should continuously grow in it. The Mass is offered again and again, because of our imperfect capacity to receive. Finally, the holy sacrifice of the Mass fulfills the Old Testament prophecy: ‘For from the rising of the sun even to the going down, my name is great among the Gentiles, and in every place there is sacrifice, and there is offered to my name a clean oblation: for my name is great among the Gentiles, saith the Lord of hosts’. (Mal 1:11). The Sacrifice of the Mass is offered every day throughout the world, and in every Mass the only truly clean oblation is offered, that is, Christ Himself; thus the Mass is the perfect fulfillment of this prophecy.
