Calvary Chapel, Bill Hybels, and Jesuit Mysticism

Ignatius_LoyolaFrom an article warning of the Jesuit connection to Calvary Chapel.  Apparently, CC has endorsed Bill Hybels, whose son-in-law is being mentored by a Jesuit and who is bringing Jesuit spirituality into the churches.  All furthering the attempt at eliminating differences and folding everyone into a single religion under Vatican control:

Fr. Michael Sparough SJ [the mentor] is a director at the Bellarmine Jesuit Retreat House and the founder of Charis Ministries (a Jesuit retreat ministry). He is also a proponent of mystical prayer practices,[11] including the exercises of St. Ignatius (founder of the Jesuits). The Ignatian exercises are contemplative in nature and rooted in Eastern-style meditation. A little background information on the Jesuits might be helpful at this point…

…The fact that Fr. Sparough is both a Jesuit and an advocate of mystical prayer practices as well as a mentor to Bill Hybel’s son-in-law should make all Christians take notice. The fact that Calvary Chapel is now endorsing Bill Hybels should send shock waves through the church.
