Ecumenism-Shall Christians “Expose the Unfruitful Works of Darkness”? Cover Them Up?-or Pretend They Don’t Exist?

Ephesians 5:11….

Well, first of all Christians will need to discern the unfruitful works of darkness, before they can be exposed. And…the only way to be able to do that is to be well acquainted with the Word of God and be led by the Holy Spirit. Christians will simply be unable to discern error, compromise,  false teachings, or those bringing a different gospel, if they are not being led by the Holy Spirit and being attentive to the Word of God.

 I believe the LORD is calling His people to a higher level of discernment as well as urging them to warn others about what has presented itself as a clear and present danger no longer to be ignored, and certainly not to be deliberately covered up. The danger is ecumenism, and it is NOT of God.

From the Jeremiah Project:

The Emergence of a One World Religion

“Modern Ecumenical Movement
There is great emphasis in the church today on uniting professing Christians of all denominations and beliefs. The message is that we’re not so different after all… we can work together. Setting aside theological differences, we can help each other in the things we all agree upon. That effort is commonly referred to as “ecumenism,” which is defined as “the organized attempt to bring about the cooperation and unity of all believers in Christ.”

“Take heed that no man deceive you.”… “And many false prophets shall rise, and shall deceive many.”…”For there shall arise false Christs, and false prophets, and shall show great signs and wonders; insomuch that, if it were possible, they shall deceive the very elect.” – Matthew 24:4;11;24″

    Thanks Watchman…I have been falsely accused of “throwing stones”, being harshly judgmental, etc regarding my stance on ecumenism. I have seen the very same thing said about spiritual abuse, and/or sexual abusers in the church. According to scripture, these sins are not to be tolerated in the Body of Christ. It is NOT an unloving thing to warn someone who has begun to follow a false path, nor is it unloving to warn others so that they don’t fall into the same error.

    I found this link today which was very telling.

    Billy Graham was warned many times:
    “These are only a few of the men who attempted to reprove Graham for his error. Graham mentions these warnings in his biography.

    “Much more painful to me, however, was the opposition from some of the leading fundamentalists. Most of them I knew personally, and even if I did not agree with them on every detail, I greatly admired them and respected their commitment to Christ. Many also had been among our strongest supporters in the early years of our public ministry. Their criticisms hurt immensely, nor could I shrug them off as the objections of people who rejected the basic tenets of the Christian faith or who opposed evangelism of any type” (Graham, Just As I Am, p. 302).

    Graham also calls the criticism “harsh” and claims that the men who criticised him demonstrated “a lack of love,” but the disobedient always say that no matter how tender and loving the rebukes are. They always confuse correction with persecution. It is human nature to do that, and it raises a smokescreen to hide the real issues.

    Reproof is never an easy thing to receive, and it always seems to be unloving to those who refuse to accept it. Further, one can always find some fault in the reprover, because he or she is also a sinner. Proverbs teaches that one’s attitude toward biblical reproof exposes the condition of the heart.

    “He is in the way of life that keepeth instruction: but he that refuseth reproof erreth” (Prov. 10:17).

    “The ear that heareth the reproof of life abideth among the wise. He that refuseth instruction despiseth his own soul: but he that heareth reproof getting understanding” (Prov. 16:32).

    Billy Graham does not have a proper attitude toward biblical reproof. He has refused to turn from the path of disobedience, and he slanders those who have loved him and God’s Word enough to attempt to correct him.

    Billy Graham was warned. He has had many opportunities to repent. Sadly, he has clung steadfastly to the course of disobedience to God’s Word, and no other man in this generation is more responsible than Billy Graham for breaking down the walls between truth and error.”
