An ecumenical epidemic has broken out in America. These days, many evangelical Christians accept Roman Catholics as "brothers and sisters in Christ" and the Roman Catholic Church as a Christian church, albeit with some unbiblical "doctrinal distinctives." Pastor Ralph Ovadal believes that the pro-life movement has been one of the key factors, if not the key factor, in desensitizing Christians to the danger and sin of accepting the Roman Catholic Church as Christian. In More Than These, Pastor Ovadal begins with the Second Vatican Council of 1962-1965 and documents how the Roman Catholic Church has systematically used the pro-life movement, with the help of Christians, to advance its ecumenical strategy. In the writing of this book, Pastor Ovadal drew from his own extensive experiences working in virtually every area of the pro-life movement, beginning in the late 1970s and including the rescue movement. His years spent as a Christian radio and television program producer and host on a nationwide network provide an added perspective shared by few people. More Than These is also based on research from a wide range of sources, some of which are unavailable to all but a relatively small group of pro-life activists.
This book details how Roman Catholic influence and even doctrine has permeated the pro-life movement, including street-level activist ministries, Christian radio, the pregnancy center networks, and the hearts of major Christian ministries.
