“Ecumenism - What Is It?”
by Art Sadlier   
December 18th, 2016

There has been a loss of understanding, recently, especially among younger believers, as to the purpose and agenda of the Ecumenical movement. Ecumenism is an attempt to unite not only all of Christendom, but all religions into union where theology and belief are set aside. The late Pope John Paul II stated, “The challenge of peace … transcends religious differences.”

The Ecumenical movement is an attempt to unite belief and unbelief, light and darkness, sheep and wolves.

By its very nature and purpose it must reject the fundamentals of the faith once delivered to the saints.

Jude, our Lord’s half-brother, not only exhorts us to be uncompromising in our faith, but to contend for it. “Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints.”

The Apostle John also refuted Ecumenism in 2 John 9 - 11 “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed; for he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

Jesus stated that believers are to come out of Ecumenism (Rev 18:4). Paul warned against Ecumenism in 2 Cor. 6:14-17. For the past 100 years, separation from Ecumenism has been the defining point of orthodoxy among Fundamentalists. Although few may realize it, the ultimate end of Ecumenism will be realized as stated in Rev 13:8 “...and all that dwell on earth shall worship him...” The ultimate end of ecumenism will involve the whole world bowing down and worshipping Antichrist. As previously stated the broad base of the Ecumenical movement denies the absolute authority of God’s Word, the virgin birth, the deity of Christ and efficacy of the shed blood of Christ. In short they deny the faith once delivered to the saints. Ecumenism is a part of the last day’s deception (Mt 24: 4, 5). The true believer will have the insight and the courage to reject Ecumenism.
