The “Prophet” Kiko Arguello

For a while now I’ve heard rumors that the catechists of the Neocatechumenal Way teach members that Kiko Arguello, the co-founder of “the Way” is a “prophet”.

Well, in late May of 2014 I obtained this screenshot from the Facebook timeline of a young person from Guam who was planning to attend a vocational meeting in the Philippines where Mr. Arguello would be speaking.

The rumors are probably true.

  1. There will be no other prophet after Jesus. (Hebrews 1:1-2)
    God’s Final Word: His Son

    1 In the past God spoke to our ancestors through the prophets at many times and in various ways, 2 but in these last days he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of all things, and through whom also he made the universe.

    In Revelation 19:10, John tells us that the testimony of Jesus IS the Spirit of Prophecy.

    All is directed back to Jesus Christ.

    1. //There will be no other prophet after Jesus.//

      I don’t think so, Tony.

      “Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others pass judgment.” 1 Corinthians 14:29

      Anyway, my brother and my mother are members of the NCW and I haven’t heard of Kiko being a prophet, although a Christian’s vision/words could be “prophetic”.

      1. Wilberg, there are “prophets” with a small “p” and “Prophets” with a large “P”. Nobody is contradicting the New Testament’s references to Christians with the charismatic gift of prophecy. It’s just that we have proof, here, and here that members of the Way think of Kiko in much, much larger terms. In fact, Kiko suggests as much in his timeline of Church history, where he implicitly compares himself to the biblical prophets Ezra and Nehemiah who rebuilt Jerusalem after the exile. That assertion complements the extreme cult of personality surrounding Arguello.

      2. “and I haven’t heard of Kiko being a prophet, although a Christian’s vision/words could be “prophetic”.”

        So he is not a prophet but his words can be prophetic….
        Its not a duck but it walks , talks and flies like a duck, but its not a duck… no no

        Not only is Kiko treated as a prophet but ordinary Catechists think that God spokes through them.

        They told me to my face
        “God spoke to you through the catechists”
        “we speak in the name of God”

  2. You can not stop what you haven’t begin. If The Way is a wrong one, it will disappear. So keep calm and follow Jesus where you are standing.
