“Southern Baptists Joining the Pope for a Conference on Marriage and the Family”
by Friday Church News Notes,,   
November 7th, 2014

Southern Baptists Rick Warren and Russell Moore are scheduled to speak later this month in a Vatican conference on marriage and family life. Other speakers include Pope Francis, Catholic bishops and priests, plus Mormons, Jews, and Muslims. The November 17-19 conference, "An International Interreligious Colloquium on the Complementarity of Man and Woman," will feature about 30 speakers representing 14 religions. It is sponsored by the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity and other Catholic entities. Moore, who heads the SBC's Ethics and Religious Liberty Commission, says, "I am willing to go anywhere, when asked, to bear witness to what we as evangelical Protestants believe about marriage and the gospel, especially in times in which marriage is culturally imperiled" ("Russell Moore, Rick Warren to join Vatican conference,", Nov. 3, 2014). This is humanistic thinking that flies in the face of the Bible's commands to mark and avoid those who teach heresy. Examples are Romans 16:17-18; 1 Corinthians 15:33; 2 Corinthians 6:14-18; 11:1-4; 2 Timothy 3:5; and 2 John 8-11. Even the most "conservative" of evangelicals have renounced biblical separation, participating in unscriptural alliances and supporting others who so participate. "Having a form of godliness, but denying the power thereof: from such turn away" (2 Timothy 3:5).
