The Swiss churches have signed an ecumenical charter on closer cooperation in Europe – the first such document since the 11th century.

The text of the Charta Oecumenica, which was drawn up in 2001, speaks of the need for Christian unity in Europe

Representatives of ten Christian denominations in Switzerland signed the document at an inter-confessional gathering in the church of St Ursanne in northwest Switzerland.

“The charter is the result of a growing cooperation between the churches in Europe,” said Monsignor Amédée Grab, the president of the Swiss Bishops’ Conference, in a sermon. ...

Why, G. G., did you know that one of the titles of the Roman Emperor was "Pope?" He convened councils just like a Pope does now. The early bishops of Rome wouldn't do that. It is obvious that the Catholic Church would be a recognizable to a person who became a Christian from just reading the Bible. Purgatory doesn't exist, The Queen of Heaven, isn't holy, scapulae are nonsense, as well as indulgences, the Judaizers have had 2000 years of corrupting the Catholic Church. The present Pope is mentally deficient. He should have retired years ago, and no one of his present age could be appointed Pope. Just think how many popes could have been demented from age or sexual disease! This alone might explain much of what the Catholic Church believes, though no doubt, they had helps from the big D. On arrogance:

Christ did not redeem his church with his blood that the pope might come in and steal away the glory. He never came from heaven to earth,and poured out his very heart that he might purchase his people, that a poor sinner, a mere man, should be set upon high to be admired by all the nations, and to call himself God's representative on earth. Christ has always been the Head of the church. C.H. Spurgeon -- MTP Vol 60 pg. 592

Jim: Your statements are pattonly absurd. How can the foundational Church that put the faith into motion based on Christ's own directives be apostate. Only from your Apostate view some hundreds of years after the fact, could the true faith appear to you to be apostate. This merely confirms your own apostacy. Only people who don't know any church history would try to assert that Constantine was the first Pope, when there were long line of real Popes that came before him. Perhaps your errors aren't meant to be arrogant, but they certainly aren't history. Sorry, but a Bible without the Deuts wouldn't be accurate, it would be incomplete. I can "get used to truth" but not sophistry. Try again buddy.

Jim - lager still tastes insipid no matter how long the brewery "claims" to have been in business.

Sorry, G. G., but the Catholic Church was one of the first apostate organizations around. Their marriage with the Roman Empire, the Emperor Constantine was really the first pope, made them increasingly anti-Christian.

Nothing arrogant about it, just read an uncommented Bible, preferably an accurate one that doesn't have the Apocrypha in it, then you can see that the Catholic Church ancestry came from the Judaizers. If you find the truth arrogance, I guess you a half to get used to it.

You have been checking into:

Lately, have you? That's site besides many others that are given along with articles by SermonAudio, will help you down the right road.

I agree Anon33k, but comparing Prots to incipid lager is a bit much.

Real ale is better than insipid lager.

re:"Christians will never be able to get together with the Catholic Church". Let me be the first to correct your lack of historical knowledge. All variations of Catholics and Eastern Orthodox were among the very first Christians. Protestants are johnny-come-latelies. I forgive your ignorance but I am having trouble with your arrogance.

A think all three of us agree, trying to have ecumenism with the Catholic Church, is impossible. I might as well, put up the URL for my pastor's commentary on Evangelicals and Catholics Together.

I strongly recommend Ivan Fosters sermon on Ecumenism from this past Lords Day.
11 Corinthians 6:14 - 18 14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?
16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.
18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty.

I see these fellows are getting ready to sink to the level of the religious organization that is described in the Book of Revelation.

These denominations may be able to get together, but Christians will never be able to get together with the Catholic Church.
