Can the ecumenical movement survive?
PORTO ALEGRE, Brazil - Charged with promoting Christian unity, the World Council of Churches has taken its work seriously: Each of its meetings has grown bigger and more ambitious over the past six decades.

But now even some of the most ardent backers of the WCC's mission are wondering if smaller may be better.

During the WCC's latest global assembly -- bringing together 4,000 envoys from more than 350 churches -- delegates challenged the group to look hard at whether such parliament-style mega-meetings are still relevant at a time when Christianity is being rapidly reordered around the world.

In the West, mainline Protestant churches face graying congregations and declining influence. Some denominations, most notably Anglicans, also are in danger in splintering over disputes on gay clergy and same-sex blessings. ...

Cont.,

Here he was compelled to leave off speaking, and to go up the ladder. He then prayed again, and said, "Lord! I die in the faith that Thou wilt not leave Scotland, but that Thou will make the blood of thy witnesses to be the seed of the Church, and will return again and be glorious in our land. And now, Lord, I am ready; the Bride, the Lamb's wife, hath made herself ready."

When the napkin was tied about his face, he uttered a few affectionate words to the single friend who was permitted to attend him on the scaffold; his last counsels then spoken to the suffering remnant, show how much his heart was with them, and the cause of truth in their hands.

"As to the remnant I leave, I have committed them to God. Tell them from me, not to weary, nor be discouraged in maintaining their testimony. Let them not quit or forego one of these despised truths. Let them keep their ground; and the Lord will provide them churches and ministers. And /when He comes, He will make these despised truths glorious in the earth./"

It will not survive forever...

"To the friends of evangelical truth, and the faithful witnesses for the Redeemer's royal prerogatives, the services of Renwick, at the crisis in which he exercised his public ministry, were invaluable. He was eminently the man for the time. Through the influence of the unhappy Indulgence, the strict Covenanters were reduced to what they style themselves in the "Informatory Vindication," a "wasted, suffering, anti-popish, anti-prelatic, anti-erastian, anti-sectarian remnant."

By the death of Cargill and Cameron, they were left as "sheep without a shepherd,"—broken and scattered. Through the fierceness of persecution, and the machinations of enemies, they were in danger of falling into confusion, and of being entirely wasted and destroyed. We admire the gracious providence of God in preparing, at this particular crisis, an instrument of such rare and suitable endowments for feeding "the flock in the wilderness," and for unfurling and upholding so nobly the "Banner of truth" amidst hosts of infuriated enemies....

Sure the ecumenical movement can survive as long as Satan finds willing accomplices but only so long as God tolerates this. He will utterly destroy the Great Whore in time just as it is written in Revelation.

May we realize that there are still people God wants rescued and brought to salvation that have been caught up in all this mess. It will be to His glory and pleasure and to our joy for each one that He does.

As long as the words evangelical and ecumenical are diametrically opposed to one an other in the True Christian dictionary, then unity of this ilk will never survive.
Compromise is the language of the church groups of the WCC, this is a word not used in Scripture.

"Aram, the moderator of the assembly, urged more outreach to the evangelical powerhouses and stressed that the WCC members must learn how to engage more with youth or risk becoming spiritual dinosaurs."

Oops. Too late.
