Churches Celebrate 10th Anniversary of 'Justification' Agreement
Methodists, Lutherans and Roman Catholics worldwide on Saturday observed the tenth anniversary of the signing of a landmark ecumenical agreement considered as one of the most significant since the Reformation.

On Oct. 31, 1999, representatives of the Roman Catholic Church and the Lutheran World Federation got together to sign the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification, in which the two church bodies together confessed: "By grace alone, in faith in Christ's saving work and not because of any merit on our part, we are accepted by God and receive the Holy Spirit, who renews our hearts while equipping and calling us to good works."

Members of the World Methodist Council later adopted the document by unanimous vote as well, in 2006, sharing the belief that a common understanding of justification was "fundamental and indispensable" to overcoming the division between Catholics and ...

The unbiblical nature of the Catholic Lutheran Accord and the apostasy that it represents is examined in the light of Scripture by Richard Bennett, former R.C. priest here:
http://www.bereanbeacon.org/articles/sorted/05_False_Ecumenism/The_Catholic_Lutheran_Accord.pdf

“Since he was cursed who rebuilt Jerico, much more the man who labors to restore Popery among us. In our fathers’ days the gigantic walls of Popery fell by the power of their faith,
the perseverance of their efforts, and the blast of their gospel trumpets; and now there are some who would rebuild that accursed system upon its old foundation. O Lord, be pleased to
thwart their unrighteous endeavors, and pull down every stone, which they build. It should be a serious business with us to be thoroughly purged of every error which may have a tendency
to foster the spirit of Popery; and when we have made a clean sweep at home we should seek in every way to oppose its all to rapid spread abroad in the church and in the world.” (C.H.S.)

As R. Bennett has pointed out, the prayer of C. H. Spurgeon expressed in his Devotional above on Joshua 6:26 is a most urgent one in our day.

Sounds great as a formal statement, but dig into the content...

Dogmatics: that's what you say, but let's investigate
to see what you mean and at what point you deviate from sound doctrine.

Sadly, I am not surprised to see these three factions in agreement.

However the Roman Catholic dogma teaches that

Justification is;;
"A biblio-ecclesiastical term; which denotes the transforming of the sinner from the state of unrighteousness to the state of holiness and sonship of God. Considered as an act (actus justificationis), justification is the work of God alone, presupposing, however, on the part of the adult the process of justification and the COOPERATION OF HIS FREE WILL with God's preventing and helping grace (gratia praeveniens et cooperans). Considered as a state or habit (habitus justificationis), it denotes the continued possession of a quality inherent in the soul, which theologians aptly term sanctifying grace" (Catholic Encyclopedia)

The RCC just will not give up *salvation by works* in all of their unBiblical dogma.
