Hundreds to Mark 50 Years of Ecumenism
Nearly 400 Christians from a score of Christian denominations will convene Thursday to assess the 50 years of Christian unity they have lived and the future of the ecumenical movement.

Theologians and religious leaders from the Roman Catholic, Pentecostal, Orthodox, Protestant, Evangelical and other Christian communities are holding a July 19-23 ecumenical conference at Oberlin College in Ohio, where they will gather under the banner "On Being Christian Together."

The meeting marks the 50th anniversary of the first gathering of the Faith and Order Commission of the National Council of Churches of Christ in the USA (NCC) – a network of 35 various faith groups that constitute 45 million members across the nation – and will celebrate the work of Christian communities that have made efforts to strengthen the unity of the Church through dialogue and research on theological differences. ...

Seems there were a lot of foreign things creeping into the Church long before 1517, Lance.

I think the really big increase in apostasy started round about the year 1517. It grew gradually, becoming the huge secular movement that engulfs the world today.

Of course, there may be a "reversal" of the Reformation. The Bible warned in the last days there would be increased apostacy and preference given to man's tickling words instead of God's word. Just because there appears to be a "reversal" of the Reformation doesn't mean the RCC is the true church and others are defective.

Lance it is recognized the Apostate Church in the book of Reformation will be a big one, we can only expect the Roman Catholic Church which is a part of it, will grow.

"False Credentials"

http://www.catholicconcerns.com/False.html

It has been a wake up call for many Protestants that His Unholiness just reaffirmed what has always been the Roman Church's position.

"No, I'm not offended"

http://www.bpnews.net/BPFirstPerson.asp?ID=26073

as one president of a Southern Baptist seminary pointed out.

Reversing the Reformation -- don't!

"Theologians and religious leaders from the Roman Catholic, Pentecostal, Orthodox, Protestant, Evangelical and other Christian communities"

The problem with this statement is that to bring all these groups into ecumenism, you first have to redefine their titles. Eg protestant and evangelical....

2Corin 6:15
And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel?

Reversing the Reformation?

Perhaps Gil Rugh recognizes the inevitability of this process.

"So here you have the Roman Catholics and the Pentecostals in a discussion and debate over whether the Roman Catholics had to speak in tongues to have the Holy Spirit. Now there are much more basic and foundational issues dividing Evangelical Charismatics and Roman Catholics, but the time was spent of this discussion."

I agree that the issue between the Protestants and Catholics is much deeper than whether the Roman Catholics speak in tongues. The diabolical doctrines of the Catholic Church tell the discerning believer that they do not have the Holy Spirit even though they may speak in tongues.

But regarding your post, about spending time on a foolish discussion—what about whether or not we have a free will—and whether or not there will be a pre-trib rapture—and about eternal security?

The thing that each and every one of us must be doing is living the Gospel [the teachings of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ] and preaching the Gospel. If we are not, our free will is irrelevant, we do not have eternal security, and will miss the pre-trib rapture if there is one.

This movement will be especially strong during the Tribulation, but for Christians this should be a bane.

Reversing the Reformation,

http://www.ihcc.org/images/booklets/pdf/L117.pdf

Ah, and for the Pentecostals,

"The Charismatics' Role in Ecumenism"

"n June of 1992, Christianity Today had an article entitled Catholics on the Pentecostal Trail. The introduction to the article was Catholic Charismatics Celebrate the 25th Anniversary of Their beginnings They Continue to Search for a Sense of Direction. 1992 marked the 25th anniversary of Roman Catholicism's involvement in a serious and semi-official way in the Charismatic movement. So here you have the Roman Catholics meeting with the Pentecostals and the major part of the evening is spent in a discussion and debate over whether the Roman Catholics had to speak in tongues to have the Holy Spirit. Now there are much more basic and foundational theological issues dividing Evangelical Charismatics and Roman Catholics, but the time was spent on this discussion. Now anytime you join together on the basis of experience, rather than biblical doctrine and theology, you have opened the door so broad that anyone can storm through."
