Ecumenism

The chasm between Catholicism and Protestantism is steadily closing. However, while Rome itself has not changed any of its doctrines, many Protestant churches are compromising their beliefs. But it isn't just Protestants paying homage to Rome. Other religions are making overtures to the Vatican. Many of the religions involved teach opposing viewpoints. Which one is true? All viewpoints cannot be truth. Ecumenism seeks to water down truth, make it relative, and destroy the veracity of the Bible.

Read more about Vatican II's influence on world unityEver since the Vatican II Council, the Papacy has been working to bring about unity of all churches under the authority of Rome. This has been achieved through a variety of means, including through the introduction of ecumenical thinking in institutes of advanced learning, emphasizing liturgy over the Word in church services, and the introduction of musical 'celebration' in church services. Most Protestants are unaware of how much Papal thinking and goals have penetrated their denominations and services. Source Unknown.

Jesuit theologian Karl Rahner was given the mandate to let the Protestant churches know that the Catholic Church no longer required them to convert, but that as long as they acknowledge the supremacy of the Catholic Church and the Pope, they might be recognized within their individual denominations as the body of Christ. 

This theologian was influential in influencing the thinking of many others to further Papal plans for unity. 

Rahner’s motto was effectively, “Our Lord must conform to the world, not it to Him.”  Rahner’s influence was enormous. He satisfied a modern world, and modern churchmen, whose ears were itching for doctrinal compromises under the pretext of “enlightenment.” Read more about Rahner from the Catholic Family News

Interestingly, Billy Graham is a recipient of the Templeton Prize. Templeton believed in pantheism (nothing exists except God) and universalism (the Christ spirit dwells in every human being whether the person knows it or not).

John Paul II with an African Voodoo Priest. Assisi, 1986.Voodooism (voodoo=deity) is a religion originating in West Africa (particularly Benin) that is also widely practiced in Haiti and the Antilles. It is characterized by various rites of homage to the 'Great Master' or good God who is the creator of the spirits responsible for protecting human beings. The great God and the sprits are identified with the Christian God and the saints of the Catholic Church. The calendar of Voodoo feast imitates that of Christian worship.
Voodoo ceremonies consist of rituals invoking the spirits and the great God and are marked by drums and songs accompanying an animal sacrifice. The rite culminates in a trance in which a ritual dancer is thought to be possessed by a divinity. Ceremonies are conducted by a man (hungan), or a woman (mambo), who are often knowledgeable about witchcraft as well.

Billy Graham wrote this: “Reagan was the first American President to appoint a full ambassador to the Vatican. Before he made the appointment, he asked my view. I told him I thought it would probably be a good thing—in spite of a number of potential problems concerning the separation of church and state—and wrote an extended confidential letter outlining my reasons. Among other things, I told him I did not think it necessarily violated the separation of church and state. For whatever reasons, Mr. Reagan went ahead with the plan. Later my letter was leaked to the press. It caused some consternation among my Baptist friends.” Billy Graham, Just As I Am: The Autobiography of Billy Graham (Harpers Collins Worldwide, 1997): 535.

Speaking inside the Great Umayyad mosque, a splendid testimonial to Syrian history, he also said religious conviction was never a justification for violence. 'Never more communities in conflict,' he said in the mosque, which contains a memorial to St. John the Baptist. Outside lies the tomb of Saladin, who drove the Crusaders from the East.Photo Source Unknown.
