What Is Ecumenism?
Hand in Hand with Rome
Back when I left the Roman Catholic religion, about 1950 or so, people agreed that this religion was a cult. What Roman Catholicism taught and practiced was at odds with the Truth of the Bible.
Rev. 22:17-19 And the Spirit and the bride say, Come. And let him that heareth say, Come. And let him that is athirst come. And whosoever will, let him take the water of life freely.  For I testify unto every man that heareth the words of the prophecy of this book, If any man shall add unto these things, God shall add unto him the plagues that are written in this book:  And if any man shall take away from the words of the book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book. [KJV] Emphasis mine. Is this not what the Catholics do? Especially ADD UNTO!
There were some things at least on the outside, that Catholics and Bible-believing Christians hold in common. The virgin birth of Christ Jesus which involves the conception of Jesus by the Holy Spirit, is one example. BUT, concerning Christ’s miraculous birth, the Catholic Church ADDS the virgin Mary and the heresies of her Immaculate Conception. My dear friend, Mary was a incredible and marvelous woman . . . BUT . . . she was a sinner like ALL humans! She herself admitted that she needed a Saviour! Mary WAS a sinner. She NEEDED a Saviour just like you and me. Her Saviour is Jesus, just like you and me! Jesus just happened to be her son!
Luke 1:46-55 And Mary said, My soul doth magnify the Lord, 47 And my spirit hath rejoiced in God my Saviour. 48 For he hath regarded the low estate of his handmaiden: for, behold, from henceforth all generations shall call me blessed. 49 For he that is mighty hath done to me great things; and holy is his name. 50 And his mercy is on them that fear him from generation to generation. 51 He hath shewed strength with his arm; he hath scattered the proud in the imagination of their hearts. 52 He hath put down the mighty from their seats, and exalted them of low degree. 53 He hath filled the hungry with good things; and the rich he hath sent empty away. 54 He hath holpen his servant Israel, in remembrance of his mercy; 55 As he spake to our fathers, to Abraham, and to his seed for ever. (KJV) . . . WHO IS GOD??? Jesus!!!
John 1:1-3 In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. 2 The same was in the beginning with God. 3 All things were made by him; and without him was not any thing made that was made. (KJV)
Mary’s having been conceived without sin, and her perpetual virginity is NOT in the Bible! The Catholics added unto these things, which is condemned by God’s Holy Word (Rev.22:18) above!
TRUE Bible believing Christians understand and receive the TRUE Gospel of Jesus Christ! The TRUE Gospel involves believing that Jesus, by His sacrificial death and resurrection, paid the FULL penalty for sin for every man, woman and child who BELIEVE! The Gospel of Jesus Christ found in the Bible clearly teaches in multiple verses and is implied in many more.
BUT, that is NOT the gospel according to the Roman Catholic Church. The Catholic Church opposes the Bible’s Gospel in its teachings and practices, and has been made plain through its councils and murderous inquisitions down through history. During the Reformation, many individuals (mainly former Catholics) worked to RESTORE the Biblical Gospel. In truth, it had never ceased to be believed by a remnant OUTSIDE the Catholic Church.
The Church of Rome made its official position on the gospel crystal clear in its counter reformation Council of Trent.
6th Session, Canon 9: If anyone says that a sinner is justified by faith alone, meaning that nothing else is required to cooperate in order to obtain the grace of justification . . . let him be anathema.
The BIBLE states:
Romans 5:1 Therefore being justified by faith, we have peace with God through our Lord Jesus Christ: (KJV)
Ephes. 2:8-9 For by grace are ye saved through faith; and that not of yourselves: it is the gift of God:  Not of works, lest any man should boast. (KJV)
The Catholic Church demands far more than faith for salvation that it must anathematize (condemn) those who reject its sacramental works.
6th Session, Canon 12: If anyone shall say that justifying faith is nothing else than confidence in the divine mercy which remits sins for Christ’s saks, or that it is this confidence alone by which we are justified: let him be anathema.
The BIBLE states:
Galatians 2:16 Knowing that a man is not justified by the works of the law, but by the faith of Jesus Christ, even we have believed in Jesus Christ, that we might be justified by the faith of Christ, and not by the works of the law: for by the works of the law shall no flesh be justified. (KJV)
Galatians 3:11 But that no man is justified by he law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, The just shall live by faith. (KJV)
Romans 11:6 And if by grace, then is it no more of works: otherwise grace is no more grace. But if it be of works, then is it no more grace: otherwise work is no more work. (KJV)
John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life. (KJV) . . . Jesus' words.
Romans 3:24 Being justified freely by his grace through the redemption that is in Christ Jesus: (KJV)
1 Cor. 6:11 And such were some of you: but ye are washed, but ye are sanctified, but ye are justified in the name of the Lord Jesus, and by the Spirit of our God. (KJV)
According to the Catholics, belief alone in Christ’s finished sacrifice on the cross is condemned.
6th Session, Canon 30: If anyone says that after the reception of the grace of justification the guilt is so remitted and the debt of eternal punishment so blotted out to every repentant sinner, that no debt of temporal punishment remains to be discharged either in this world or in purgatory before the gates of heaven can be opened, let him be anathema.
The BIBLE states:
Romans 5:9 Much more then, being now justified by his blood, we shall be saved from wrath through him. (KJV)
Romans 4:6-8 Even as David also describeth the blessedness of the man, unto whom God imputeth righteousness without works,  Saying, Blessed are they whose iniquities are forgiven, and whose sins are covered.  Blessed is the man to whom the Lord will not impute sin. (KJV)
Titus 3:7 That being justified by his grace, we should be made heirs according to the hope of eternal life. (KJV)
2 Cor. 5:8 We are confident, I say, and willing rather to be absent from the body, and to be present with the Lord. (KJV)
John 5:24 Verily, verily, I say unto you, He that heareth my word, and believeth on him that sent me, hath everlasting life, and shall not come into condemnation; but is passed from death unto life.(KJV) . . . Jesus' words.
Hebrews 8:12 For I will be merciful to their unrighteousness, and their sins and their iniquities will I remember no more. (KJV)
Hebrews 10:17-18 And their sins and iniquities will I remember no more.  Now where remission of these is, there is no more offering for sin. (KJV)
1 Peter 1:18-19 Forasmuch as ye know that ye were not redeemed with corruptible things, as silver and gold, from your vain conversation received by tradition from your fathers;  But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot: (KJV)
Although many Catholics wrongly believe that their Church has moved beyond the declarations of its Councils such as Trent, they still think they need Purgatory, in the hope of burning off their remainder of sins, thus making them fit to enter Heaven. THAT is a TOTAL rejection of the finished work of Christ and THAT is a gospel that will save NO one. The Catholics teach another Jesus and another gospel that what the BIBLE teaches! BEWARE!!!
2 Cor. 11:4 For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him. (KJV)
To believe that most Catholics are saved simply because they love Jesus is NOT what the Bible states! Every Catholic is obligated to believe the Catholic gospel, and it is totally opposed to the Gospel of Jesus Christ found in the Holy Bible! To truly love Jesus means to love Him as the Scriptures state:
1 John 5:20 And we know that the Son of God is come, and hath given us an understanding, that we may know him that is true, and we are in him that is true, even in his Son Jesus Christ. This is the true God, and eternal life. (KJV)
My dear friend . . . the Catholic Jesus (another Jesus) did NOT pay the full penalty for sin and still remains on crucifixes in Catholic churches is said to be immolated during the Mass. Immolation means sacrificed, to be killed . . . and NOT just as a symbolic gesture, according to the Catechism of the Catholic Church: “The sacrifice of the altar, then, is no mere empty commemoration of Calvary, but a true and proper act of sacrifice, whereby Christ the high priest by an unbloody immolation offers himself a most acceptable victim to the eternal Father, as he did on the cross. ‘It is one and the same victim; the same person now offers it by the ministry of his [Catholic] priests, who then offered himself on the cross. Only the manner of offering is different’” (pp. 445-46).
This is a clear DENIAL of the finished Sacrifice of Christ which takes place daily on millions of Catholic altars in precise contradiction to:
Hebrews 10:10-12 By the which will we are sanctified through the offering of the body of Jesus Christ once for all. 11 And every priest standeth daily ministering and offering oftentimes the same sacrifices, which can never take away sins: 12 But this man, after he had offered one sacrifice for sins for ever, sat down on the right hand of God; (KJV) . . . The TRUE JESUS is in Heaven! He is NOT still on the Catholic cross!
John 19:30 When Jesus therefore had received the vinegar, he said, It is finished: and he bowed his head, and gave up the ghost. (KJV) . . . He said, it is finished . . . meaning the total will of God: that He should be incarnate, that He would be exposed to shame and reproach, that He would suffer much, that He should die . . . the complete work His Father gave Him to do, which was to preach the Gospel, work miracles, and obtain eternal salvation for His people . . . ALL of which were now done, or as good as done. The whole righteousness of the law was fulfilled by Him (Mat.5:17), perfect obedience by Jesus as yielding to the Law, He endured the penalty of death for us, a perfect righteousness agreeable to the law, which was magnified and made honorable by His righteousness.
The TRUTH is that if we really love Catholics, we want them to receive the forgiveness of their sins and the gift of eternal life that Jesus has FULLY paid for and that He offers through a simple act of believing in faith. NO damnable heresy (2 Pet.2:1) of Rome (no matter how well-intentioned) by those who profess to know Christ is a betrayal of the Truth of the Bible and assures Catholics eternal separation from God (Hell). The leaven of compromise has been penetrating the church for the last three decades. BEWARE of the coming one-world religion!
Anyone who is troubled by the blatant disregard of the Biblical Gospel of Jesus Christ as the ONLY hope for the salvation of mankind (Jn.14:6; Acts 4:12), should be deeply grieved at what is going on all around us! BEWARE!!! The Vatican seems to be going all out in its effort to romance Protestants. The Vatican’s declaration referring to baptized non-Catholic Christians as separated brethren, a change from their having been referred to before as heretics as defined by the Council of Trent, has been surprisingly successful in endearing many evangelical leaders to Rome.
If you are confused or dazed by what’s going on in Christendom, the Bible gives the answers:
2 Timothy 4:3-4 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears;
4 And they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables. (KJV)
Sound doctrine has given way to experimenting and emotionalism among millions of followers of the FALSE Signs and Wonders teachings! Biblical sensitivity has been utterly abandoned. The Lord Jesus said we are to WATCH! (Mat.24:42-43; 25:15). That is excellent advice. He also said that there would be only a few that would make it to Heaven! (Mat.7:13-14) BEWARE!!! You want to be one of the FEW!
