New Ecumenical Group Forming
CHICAGO (Reuters) - A coalition that would for the first time unite the major Christian faiths in the United States is taking years to coalesce, but its organizers say that's a good sign and are not discouraged.

One day the group could speak with a single voice on important issues in a country of 296 million where historically three of every four people claim to be Christian or at least identify with that faith.

The group, Christian Churches Together in the USA, began in 2001 when more than two dozen church leaders met to find a way to spread the patchwork quilt of U.S. churches on a single table.

The Rev. Jeff Farmer, president of Open Bible Churches, an association of evangelical Pentecostal/charismatic churches, said he came away from the California meeting convinced that while the group may not formally exist, "It already does in our minds" and "we're well down the road" to a launch. ...

A National Council of Churches for Evangelicals? This is something that we do not need. Daniel, while I agree with you--however, such a combination can never be done without the physical presence of Christ. For you who like a lengthy description of such organizations, my pastor did a very good job on describing this type of thing -- called Promise Keepers, however, I have no complaints with the comments of the two fellows who posted before me.

Amen, Daniel.

And I also quote Someone Who knows what He is talking about...

"Enter ye in at the strait gate: for wide is the gate, and broad is the way, that leadeth to destruction, and many there be which go in thereat" (Mat 7:13)

I wonder if a "broad table" leadeth to destruction, too.

JOHN 17:21 – "That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me."
Ecumenicists take John 17:21 as a theme verse, claiming unity-- for which Christ prayed-- is ecumenical unity of professing Christians which disregards biblical doctrine. BUT!Context in Jn 17 shows the Lord emphasizes the unity He desires as one based on salvation & Truth: NOT a unity of true Christians with the false -NOT unity which ignores doctrinal differences for the sake of enlarged fellowship. FIRST: unity of John 17 is a God-created unity (John 17:11). Nothing in Christ's prayer indicates man is to do anything whatsoever in an attempt to create the unity described. Jn 17 is prayer addressed to God the Father, not to men. It is not something man needs to do; it is something God has already done. The prayer was answered almost 2,000 years ago: a spiritual reality was created by God among genuine believers who are committed to the Scriptures, not a possibility which must be organized by man. ALSO unity in Jn 17 is a unity in truth (vv. 17,19,6,8,14).Christ repeatedly stated that He was praying for those who love and obey the Word of God.
NOT the modern ecumenicist's vision!
