No wonder, for even Satan disguises himself as an angel of light. Therefore it is not surprising if his servants also disguise themselves as servants of righteousness, whose end will be according to their deeds.” (2 Corinthians 11:14-15)

There is a supernatural element of darkness that is seducing many within the modern church to agree to that which is unagreeable. To accept that which is unacceptable. To align themselves with that which cannot be aligned with. That to which I’m referring to is the growing movement called Ecumenicalism. Within the past decade there has been a growing cry within both the evangelical church and the Roman Catholic church to bridge the two once again into a sphere of unity which would break down the barrier long held in place since Martin Luther’s declaration upon the doors of the Catholic church. His testament against unifying with that which has long been deemed as heresy must be considered within the scope or frame of his written warning that anything which would lead the church back to the RCC would be devastating to the modern movement which is the genuine body of Christ.

Yet here we are, nearly 500 years later and the church is once again being attacked, even infiltrated by those whose sole agenda is to disrupt the foundation of the church and its central message – the cross. Their goal is simple, to thwart the teaching which relies solely upon the finished work of the cross by which all men must be saved, and instead, a message which declares that works, community service, charity functions, humanitarian efforts are the means and the ways for this new 21st century religious movement should operate in, and not of the preaching of the cross.

Today, we see the efforts by Charismatic leaders such as Kenneth Copeland and James Robison teaming up with the Vatican and Pope Francis, with a call to merge together under one call, one system, one voice, Roman Catholics merging with Charismatics and Pentecostals, while evangelical religious leaders such as Rick Warren and Joel Osteen doing their part in bringing the remaining evangelical church under this same umbrella of the Ecumenical church. These are agents of Satan, messengers of light.

From race baiters like Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson, whose racial hatred for whites and Jews is clouding the waters of humanity and dividing the nation, to disciples of L. Ron Hubbard and the Church of Scientology, Greta Van Susteren, Tom Cruise and John Travolta, they are mingling themselves with society and even the church world to attempt to develop a friendly relationship in the hopes that their message of social unity for humanitarian efforts will garner them acceptance by all. Yet we have even the Church of Joseph Smith – Mormons, who equally are demanding to be embraced into the mainline church world. The spirit of deception is in full swing.

Satan’s greatest weapon to deceive is to play on the weakness of our emotions. He wisely uses our emotions against us as it regards to poverty, human rights violations and hunger. He knows that if he can gain a stronghold in the church, he can gain a greater stronghold in the many pulpits across the nation in order to bring about his true agenda – unity. His is a path to ruin, and those who would grip the hand of darkness in order to satisfy a social cause are only feeding the flames of this sinister plot to not only deceive the church, but to bring the church under extreme bondage through public pressure based on political correctness. The fact is, no one dares say no today out of fear of being labeled as hateful. But the fact remains, what does light have with darkness? What possible measure can two who obviously walk different paths have in common with each other that they would ignore the obvious elephant in the room (ideology) and mingle the water with a pollutant known as compromise? It cannot be done.

We either hate darkness and what it means, or we will embrace it, overlooking the evil Satan is scheming for the sake of compromise for the desire of unity to help others. The church needs to stop holding hands with outsiders who have their own agenda, their own plans, their own doctrines, and instead, go out into the world and PREACH the gospel! Ours is not to develop community standards by which the church would agree to operate under, the fact is, we should do those things God has called us to do by our own hands, not mingled with the hands who would later attempt to destroy us with. If the hungry need to be fed, we will feed them. If the homeless need a home, we will provide for them, if the poor and sick need healing, we will heal them. But we will not, nor ever stretch out our hand for help from the world nor those within it at the cost of compromise. Instead, we will do what we have been called to do and in the process we will preach to those in the darkness of what is the gospel, by revealing the love of Christ by example as well as in word. That is our only message, one which places a clear line in the sand by which we show that beyond that line God has drawn, we cannot cross over to achieve fellowship, for fellowship with the world or with those who would cause us spiritual harm cannot be merged. To that we stand opposed.

The Ecumenical movement is clearly growing, but the cost will be great. For out of this compromise will come the great falling away, followed by the great deception. Flee from those who would join hands at the cost of the cross, it simply ain’t worth it. “But even if we or an angel from heaven should preach to you a gospel contrary to the one we preached to you, let him be accursed.” (Galatians 1:8)

    Very Dear Christopher. EXCELLENT, absolutely excellent. How very, very true. There is no way when one has experienced being Born Again can they stay in the R.C. Church. No way. I speak on behalf of myself. Born Again, Tuesday, August 21, 1979. Maranatha.

    It’s both frightening and sad to me that so many dear Christians are being led astray by this movement. As usual, it’s those who don’t really know the word of God who will be taken in by these beliefs. Those of us who are truly born again have to be watchful and reach out to those who are being taken in by this movement. It always seems to go back to the basic – “God is love and I’m ok, you’re ok” thinking that draws people into this teaching. Surely, God wants us to be accepting of each other. Sounds simple, doesn’t it? And, that’s where Christians get led astray.

  3. Jay says:

    Actually, evangelicalism is the true tool of the devil. People use this book, say it is the word of God and use it to commit heinous acts against their fellow man in order to be morally superior. Lost is the message to love one another as it has been replaced by judge on another.

  4. Mark Kami says:

    Thanks Chris, l for one, l agree with you, this is the move towards one world religion, if we’re not spending time to read the word, the very elect shall be deceived
