I wouldn't worry too much about this pet theory, and instead get him to focus on fully embracing Catholicism with an open mind.  Once he discovers the beauty in the Truth that is the Faith, he may just drop this goofy chiliast views.

I joined RCIA with the mindset that "Luther was still a saint", well it wasn't long til I went from that to "Eh, he got it wrong." to "He got a lot wrong and was bad." to "The man was possessed by demons and was an arch-heretic!"

If the Truth is your goal, you will find that what you find to be true isn't so and is easier to reject it.  Get him to go full in the faith and learn to start praying the Rosary daily.

Not bad advice.

But you know, if you thought "Luther was still [kinda] a saint," and couldn't let it go (because you had real psychological issues) you could still be Catholic. You'd defs be wrong, but you'd be a good Catholic with a weird opinion.

Partially out of intellectual curiosity, partially cuz I think he just can't let it go, is his extremely improbable theory utterly incompatible with Catholicism?
