This is only a partial view of VOM’s United States Headquarters, a massive and very extravagant layout to say the least, to act as “Servants of the Persecuted Church”.
New Voice of the Martyr building, Bartlesville, OK in the US

Thanks, Scarlett. I’ve noticed that VOTM is ecumenical in its approach and presents Catholicism and Eastern Orthodoxy as genuine Christianity.
That’s part of their very large problem Tom. Richard Wurmbrand was very “Catholic”, as well as heretical in other aspects of his belief system. As for Tom White, through my research on VOM I always suspected he was either a closet Catholic or a Jesuit going incognito as an evangelical. He was a strange guy.
We attended a Southern Baptist church from May 2014 to June 2015 and the pastor several times referred to the Catholic and Orthodox victims killed by ISIS as martyrs. Those deaths are obviously tragic but they also presented an opportunity for ecumenists like my former pastor to lead people in embracing Rome.
Right. The SBC misses the mark on a lot of other issues as well…..and, it seems to get worse all the time.
The Christians that know me, know that I am not a “church” person, as it’s become known to be. Apostate church perhaps, but a counterfeit of the original. The Southern Baptist Convention, as they call themselves, was the very same “church” that lead me astray as a young ignorant seeker. As clueless as I was back then, even I realized it was a sham.
I’m definitely a square peg when it comes to theology/doctrine. I’m too “liberal” for the KJV 1611-only independent fundamentalist Baptists (rules, rules, rules) and too “conservative” for such as the SBC. The IFB Baptists are one of the few remaining groups who preach against ecumenism with Rome but I couldn’t tolerate the arrogance, the yelling from the pulpit, and the heavy emphasis on guilt.
