Concerning Ecumenism? The people speak!
Ecumenism is not a side issue. It is a matter of utmost importance that we resist the tide. Below are some of the people who have signed the petition to call Lausanne Consultation for Jewish Evangelism to renounce their ecumenism and to guarantee their abstinence from any ecumenical partnerships. They are all from different churches and ministries but that are all united in this belief that Ecumenism is a danger to the body of Christ.

HERE ARE WHAT THE SIGNATORIES HAVE TO SAY:
The danger of ecumenical involvement has been apparent to me for many years. I sincerely hope that LCJE and all other evangelical Christian ornanizations will be careful not to be involved with the Church of Rome…
I find it truly astonishing that Bible-Christians can accept Roman Catholicism as a legitimate expression of real Christianity. They seem to ignore the fact that the RC organization itself regards Protestants as outside the true church. They want us to accord to them what they will not accord to us.
Comments: Do not leave the Reformers to have died in vain.Rome does not change its spots!
Comments: I was saved by the Grace of God out of deathly clutch of Roman Catholicism. I join all those that stand against her false doctrine.
Comments: As Director of First Plumbline Apologetics we have been dealing with this issue for 5 years we do not believe because of the Nauture of the LCJE they will ever come out of the Lausanne Movement thus remain compromise since it first formed, please see, http://firstplumbline.net/html/lcje.html
Comments: Ecumenism is a subtle deception. If we do not take a strong stand against it, we will end up promoting it.

Comments: A little leaven leaveneth the whole lump. Galatians 5:9 — Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Revelation 18:4
Comments: ”And this I pray, that your love may abound still more and more in real knowledge and all discernment…” – Phillipians 1:9
Comments: Open message to accompany my petition signature I support the principle and therefore sign this petition, because I oppose New Evangelicalism’s un-Biblical compromises. The Lausanne Consultation on Jewish Evangelism (LCJE) is an integral part of the Lausanne Movement along with the sister group LCWE. These are very problematic for the Evangelical cause. WhereRome and Theological Liberalism could not gain acceptance by the direct approach upon Evangelicals, a counterfeit movement sprung up which called itself the New Evangelicals. They were so theologically broad and inclusive that they became an adversary to historic Evangelicals, whilst finding much common ground with the classic Ecumenical apostates. Eventually the prefix, ‘New’ was dropped and they went back to calling themselves Evangelical which although being a gross misnomer, allowed them to absorb themselves into the real thing, all the while carrying with them the corrosive perversions of Modernism that wrecked so many denominations in the late 19th century. There are many groups in this Liberal Evangelical Movement and the entire Lausanne Organisation typifies this ‘evangelical Trojan horse’. In a short time since 1980 LCJE has gained itself an ignominious résumé; not a surprise for a Liberal Evangelical organisation. (Work that one out if you can). However can a New Evangelical organisation vote against its own Neo-Evangelical principals and yet not have to disband? It seems very unlikely. It must be recognised that the LCJE is not an Evangelical organisation (in the correct meaning of this word). Therefore we may be asking the impossible of them. Would we say the same toRome , keep your structure and just reform your doctrines? “Semper Eadem” Comes the reply …… How so LCJE? The urgent alarm call to LCJE members and friends is: “Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues” Rev 18:4 The future of the Messianic movement hangs in the balance – PRAY!
Comments: Ecumanism is a doctrine of man NOT God’s. Their is 1 God above all other God’s and That is the God of Israel. I petition LCJE to obey the Word of God rather than man, and disown the belief that there are many pathways to God. He declared their is only 1 (One).
Comments: When Christ spoke of the Jews, He did not mean the Pharisees – please be not one of them and therefore seek the Lord your Yahweh with all your heart and with all your mind and with all your soul first. “Warn a divisive person once, and then warn them a second time. After that, have nothing to do with them.” (Titus 3:10) – you have obviously been warned many times, therefore for the last time: repent and be warned, for the Lord will turn His back on you also!
Comments: Jesus says that he who believes upon Him HAS eternal life. (John 3:36; 5:24; 6:47). The Popes disagree. The Roman church has a different gospel which teaches the exact opposite of what Jesus promised. Who will you believe?
Comments: 2 Cor 6 (i) Light can not have fellowship with darkness”, (ii) Can not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers e.g. ecumenicals, liberals or catholics in the LCJE; (iii) For what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness = e.g. those that have compromised themselves; (iv) What communion hath light with darkness = Those who have compromised the gospel message; those in LCJE that are not even saved; those in LCJE that are from the catholic religion; those in LCJE that are liberals, have created an apostate mixture: a church (movement) that is not chaste (v) What concord hath Christ with Belial = the emerging church and the apostate whore of the Roman Catholic Church. If God is the same and never changes, then the same standard of purity, holiness is still required of Born believers today. No fellowship with whoredoms has Hosea points out. Is not LCJE has become a mixture of harlotry, as it was in days of old, polluting God’s congregation, Yeshua’s body with ‘leaven’. Yeshua warned His disciples to beware of leaven of the Pharisees, beware of deceivers coming in among, perverting the gospel, perverting true fellowship of the Saints. The God of Israel who gave Torah, also said in 2 Cor 6:17 COME OUT from them and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. God says the same thing in Deutromony 23:14.So, if you profess to love God, love Yeshua love Torah, Love The Word of God, then you will realise just how much the LCJE grieves his Rauch HaKodesh, by remaining in this ungodly mixture. For the LORD thy God walketh in the midst of thy camp, to deliver thee, and to give up thine enemies before thee; therefore shall thy camp be holy: that he see no unclean thing in thee, and turn away from thee. He is the same God who requires chastity. COME OUT of this unchaste movement David Horsfall

Comments: Ecumenism is for the undiscerning and unlearned or disobedient.

Comments: The Bible very clearly does not support eccuminism. One reference is Psalm 2.

Comments: Bulletin #95 – 95? Where did I see that before – Luther comes to mind. The official position of the Roman Catholic Church is that they are the one and only true church. If you don’t agree with that, please don’t cozy up to her – she is not for you.
Comments: The Lord Jesus never ‘sat on the fence’.. and neither should His Disciples concern The Gospel

Comments: Do not be bound together with unbelievers; for what partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness? – 2 Corinthians 6:14

Comments: It is on behalf of the true saints in the Lord Jesus Christ I speak, and also for His Word which endureth forever. Every true and faithful servant of the Lord Jesus Christ is to adhere to His truth and not man made doctrines.Rome preaches and teaches a false gospel with a false christ along with heavily encouraged works salvation. We as brothers and sisters in the Lord cannot and should not tolerate any media; whether it be television, books, movies, etc., that is contradictory to the Word or worse yet, promotes pagan rituals and traditions and attributes such blasphemy to the Lord. The Lord will not be mocked and all those engaging in the smallest amount of poison and mixing with truth are continuingBabylon andConstantine’s hybrid mixture of Christian paganism. Only a small amount of anthrax is needed to kill the body. How much more the soul? Even less. Eternity of hell awaits those who believe these wicked doctrines and yet many go to death’s door believing they have heard and know the truth. Hence the difference between having a relationship with Father God and mother church.Motherchurch is sending millions to hell and it is our duty as Bible believing and practicing Christians to take a stand against the ever pervasive, subtle new age universalism hiddenly disguised in ecumenicalism. If the truth can be mixed with lies and called truth and then defended by apostates as truth, then we enter a whole other realm called relativism. Another introduction by satan into this new age ecumenicalism. Christians are to stand for the truth of the Gospel always and forever, never compromising, never bending or twisting the truth, never adding to or taking away to make it politically correct and never ever are we to sit at the table of Baal and call it God. Ever. Stand for truth or fall for lies!
Comments: I, Felipe Diez, of Reforma Ministries, sign this petition against any ecumenical or interfaith relations with the Roman church
Comments: We are told in Scripture to mark and avoid those who teach unsound doctrines – NOT to embrace them!!! Let us Hold fast and contend for THE Faith once and for all delivered to us by the Lord Jesus Christ and His apostles as we are instucted to do (i.e. Jude 3; Gal.1:8,9; 1Tim. 6:3-5;21; Rom.16:17)
Comments: ”For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.” – 1 Thessalonians 5:3 — The cry is “unity” for peace….but there can be no unity with error for that compromise God will not bless. By this I do not condemn individuals in error, I speak against the error itself.

Comments: You canot stand with a different gospel, a gospel that is no gospel at all
Comments: In Amos 3:3; it states can two walk together except they be agreed? And in 1cor.6:14-18 and in Rev.18:4; all warned Christians not to fellowship with false Christianity, that worships the creatures rather than the creator who is blessed who is blessed for ever, amen, Roman 1:25; it also warned believers in Yeshua of a false Christianity not engaging with a religious system that forbade marriage to their ministers, the practice of celibacy is of the devil, no wonder that this religious prostitute has scandals of scandals,as their priest, have been found to abuse wives,daughters of their parishioners. Engaging in paedophilicity,and priests involved in homosexual activities with minors,and alter boys, 1 Timothy 4:1-3. Christians are forbidden by Christ the Lord,not to call anyone father,because you have one father in heaven, and not to call anyone master or Rabbi because you have one master and a Rabbi, Christ the Lord, but this false religious system calls their priest fathers, and the top guy the Holy father. In the High priestly prayer of Christ to His father before He was crucified, Christ called the father in heaven, Holy Father in John 17:1-26. But this false religious system usurped this protected title of our Father in heaven to a mortal man that has breath in his nostril and also claimed to be infallible. This religious system also violates God’s command not to worship idols,graven images,and icons of dead saints, as against the bible in exodus 20: 3-5. This religious institution also claimed that their top bishop is the vicar of Christ the Lord. This is far from truth, the Holy Spirit is Christ vicar on earth as in John 16:7-8; 9-11. It is the blessed Holy Spirit that Christ sent on the feast of shavua or Pentecost is Christ’s vicar and representative not this man that protects child monsters,paedophil and sexual perverts mascurading as godly men. In retrospect, the above are sufficient ground to avoid fellowship with a system that violates the holy bible, and our blessed redeemer words. There are other reasons, but time and space made this difficult. I want to thank the Lord Jesus Christ who rescued me from this false, pseudo Christianity, hence, I am sounding out alarm to avoid her if you do not want to end up in flames in hellfire. Sincerely, Reginald Uka.
Comments: They will know we are Christians by our love for each other, we do not need to be herded together, we are free. If the Son makes you free , you are free indeed.
Comments: Ten periods in history witnessed the brutal persecutin of born again beleivers at the hands of the popes. Ratsinger has recently reaffirmed the RCC’s right / obligation to Kill heretics. That would be myself and thousands of Bible beleiving Christians who defy the popes’ claim to ” ruler of all things spiritual and temporal.” For a historically accurate and doctinally correct view of the same, please read Foxe’s Book of Martyrs. Jesus is Lord come in the flesh…and his name is NOT ratsinger.
