THE BIBLE VS. THE ECUMENICAL MOVEMENT
The ecumenical viewpoint in the world's churches is refuted by the Bible’s teaching on doctrine.
1 Timothy 1:3 As I besought thee to abide still at Ephesus, when I went into Macedonia, that thou mightest charge some that they teach no other doctrine, (KJV)
A TRUE Christian knows what the Bible teaches about doctrine. There is only one true apostolic Christian faith, where we are given the Holy Spirit so that we can know that one true faith . . . and we are required (commanded) to teach that doctrine and only that doctrine to others (Mat.28:19-20). SO . . . the ecumenical viewpoint is NOT Biblical! It is absolutely impossible to unite a strict stand for Bible doctrine with ANY kind of ecumenism. It is absolutely impossible to stand firm for the Truths of the Bible and be ecumenical in ANY way!
The ecumenical viewpoint is refuted by the Bible’s command to contend for the faith.
Jude 1:3 Beloved, when I gave all diligence to write unto you of the common salvation, it was needful for me to write unto you, and exhort you that ye should earnestly contend for the faith which was once delivered unto the saints. (KJV)
It is absolutely impossible to stand firm in your faith in Jesus and be ecumenical at the same time. Firm faith in Jesus and ecumenicalism OPPOSE each other! Fighting for your faith separates a TRUE Christian from the world and always ruins ecumenical harmony.
The ecumenical viewpoint is strongly opposed by the Bible’s warning of false teachers who preach heresies.
The New Testament is filled with warnings about false teachers. Jesus warned about them during His earthly ministry (Mat. 7:15-27) as well as in His messages to the seven churches following His resurrection and ascension (Rev. 2:2, 6, 14-16, 20-23). Paul warned over amd over again about false teachers: (1 Cor. 15:12; 2 Cor. 11:1-4, 12-15; Gal. 1:6-9; 5:7-12; Phil. 3:17-21; Col. 2:4-8, 20-23; 1 Tim. 4:1-3; 2 Tim. 3:5-13; 4:3-4). Peter also warned us about them (2 Peter 2). The apostle John warned us about them (1 John 2:18-27; 4:1-3). Jude also warned about them (Jude 1:3-19). It is absolutely impossible to be on the outlook for false teachers as carefully as the Bible commands and be ecumenical at the same time. To be on the outlook for false teachers and to be diligently comparing every teaching with the Scripture to know whether it is true or false, contradicts the liberal, open-minded emerging church idea.
The ecumenical viewpoint is refuted by the Bible’s command to separate from error.
Romans 16:17 Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offences contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned; and avoid them. (KJV)
Not only are we to hold to sound doctrine, contend for it and always be watching for false teaching . . . we are also to separate ourselves from those who teach false doctrine. According to the Bible we can know truth from error, and we are accountable to God for doing so.
John 7:17 If any man will do his will, he shall know of the doctrine, whether it be of God, or whether I speak of myself. (KJV)
John 9:31-32 Now we know that God heareth not sinners: but if any man be a worshipper of God, and doeth his will, him he heareth. 32 Since the world began was it not heard that any man opened the eyes of one that was born blind. (KJV)
1 John 2:27 But the anointing which ye have received of him abideth in you, and ye need not that any man teach you: but as the same anointing teacheth you of all things, and is truth, and is no lie, and even as it hath taught you, ye shall abide in him. (KJV)
The Biblical practice of separation is totally opposed to the doctrine of ecumenism.
Psalm 106:35 But were mingled among the heathen, and learned their works. (KJV) . . . IF you mingled among pagans, you will soon adopt their evil ways! BEWARE!!!
2 Cor. 6:14-18 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, 18 And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (KJV) . . . There can be NO harmony between Christ and the devil! A TRUE believer CANNOT be a partner with an unbeliever! There can be NO union between God’s temple and idols because TRUE believers are the temple of the living God. God has said: Isaiah 52:11 Depart ye, depart ye, go ye out from thence, touch no unclean thing; go ye out of the midst of her; be ye clean, that bear the vessels of the LORD. (KJV)
1 Peter 1:14-16 As obedient children, not fashioning yourselves according to the former lusts in your ignorance: 15 But as he which hath called you is holy, so be ye holy in all manner of conversation; 16 Because it is written, Be ye holy; for I am holy. (KJV)
The ecumenical viewpoint has spread extensively within Christianity, and as I said, even with supposed evangelicals. Yes, the ecumenical viewpoint is widespread, but it NOT Biblical. BEWARE!!!
