the light of the Word of God, is conceptually, a syncretist conjunction, because
its purpose is to amalgamate heterogeneous elements, which are contrary to the
Holy Scriptures (Ezk. 22:26, compare Lev. 10: 1, 2, 10). This definition refers
essentially to its doctrine (a philosophical‑theological mixture), which
breeds and nourishes its action in all of its manifestations.
Universalism, Pantheism and Syncretism, are combined and in evidence in all of
its concrete expressions; and even though ecumenists refuse to be identified
with such ideologies, nonetheless, they assume these principles in their actions.
Modernism, "reinterprets" the Scriptures and Biblical doctrines to the
point that they corrupt their genuine significance (example John 17:21 which
they apply to an indiscriminate inclusivism of believers and unbelievers). This
opens the door to Universalism, because by eliminating the Biblical lines of
separation, it establishes such doctrines as "the universal Fatherhood of
God" and "the universal brotherhood of man" violating clear
teaching (John 1: 12, 13 compare John 8:44).
Pantheism it has taken and incorporated into its doctrine and action the
principle of assimilation (all in one which can be condensed into one expression:
"Unity," which is deceit (Eph. 4:1‑16). As Syncretism is the
indiscriminate opening which seeks "reconciliation," not only among
the different branches called Christianity, but forces an opening toward exotic
religions Buddhism, Hinduism, Mohammedanism, etc.) seeking to yoke together what
the Bible prohibits (2 Cor. 6:14‑18).
Movement in its "search for truth" is purely deceptive and fictitious,
because while it invites faithful believers in the Inspired and Inerrant Bible
to the "brotherly dialog," it makes room, on an equal footing for all
the denials and blasphemies of those who attack and reject the Authority of the
Word of God.
the inventors and leaders of the Ecumenical Movement, are characterized by a two‑fold
attitude: while they are prolific in their unbelief and blasphemies (Barthism,
"God is dead," "New Morality," etc.), they declare the
"Movement" to be absolutely neutral to all doctrine and ideology, and,
within the Movement, they simulate a licit seeking after the "truth".
The "Movement" therefore appears to be what is an abstraction, what is
holy; but in reality is an artfully composed trick, the pot into which all kinds
of unholy and diabolical leavens are poured, which contain spiritual death (consider,
as analogy: 2 Kings 4:38‑40).
Scriptures are fulfilled when they say:
"For such are
false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of
Christ. And no marvel: for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Therefore, it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as
ministers of righteousness, whose end shall be according to their works."
(2 Cor. 11:13, 14, 15).
reference to the manifestations of ecumenism through the means of their greater
movements, World Council of Churches and Vatican Council, we recall some of the
thoughts of the "PHILADELPHIA DECLARATION" of the 17th August 1966, in
that we discern the coexistence of two different concepts:
The World Council of Churches with headquarters in Geneva, Switzerland,
and its inclusivist, indiscriminate method‑ (Protestant liberals and
Oriental Orthodox Churches on a fraternal equal footing, each learning from the
other)‑, awaits the renewal which will permit the synthesis of a "new"
Church, which no one at the present time can precisely determine.
Rome, "per semper eadem" (always the same) with its presumption
of being the Apostolic depository and with her untouchable dogmas, does not hide
from the separated brethren the fact that they must return to the "aggiornata"
paternal house, if they want to fully enjoy her favours ... (!)
WE DECLARE THAT:
Ecumenism in its philosophy, doctrine and manifestations, not only is not
Biblical, but is absolutely ANTIBIBLICAL.
hearing in mind the legitimate etymological significance of the word
"Ecumene" derived from the Greek "oikoumene" (inhabited
earth), we consider the use of the expression "ecumenism" which
determines the doctrine considered in these conclusions –as a word that will
eat as doth a gangrene (compare 2 Tim. 2:17, 18, 19), because of its
psychological purpose, which is apparently very desirable, but in its long range
is really destructive of the fundamentals of the faith.
Whatever concrete results may ensue, as they proceed from heterogeneous
mixtures, they will lack genuineness and will be an abnormal product which is
identified in the Scriptures with Babylon the Great (Rev. 17). The voice of the
"COME OUT OF HER MY PEOPLE..." (Rev. 18:4).
