The origin of the word “ecumenical” originates from the Greek word oikoumenē which means the inhabited world. The two main bodies that promote ecumenism are The World Council of Churches (WCC) and its US counterpart the National Council of Churches (NCC). The first ecumenical assembly was held in 1948 in Amsterdam when it adopted the motto “ONE WORLD – ONE CHURCH”.

WCC member churches in the UK at the present time consist of the following:

Baptist Union of Great Britain
Church in Wales
Church of England
Church of Scotland
Methodist Church
Presbyterian Church of Wales
Scottish Episcopal Church
Union of Welsh Independents
United Free Church of Scotland
United Reformed Church

Ecumenism is undoubtedly the biggest threat to Biblical Christianity in this critical Laodicean Age of lukewarm Christianity. From it’s very name and motto, the focus of ecumenism is on this world. The ecumenical movement is a direct contradiction of the claim that the kingdom of Jesus Christ is not of this world: Jesus answered, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have been fighting, that I might not be delivered over to the Jews. But my kingdom is not from the world.” (John 18/36)

This present age will end in deception, apostasy and the false Antichrist religion: Don’t let anyone deceive you in any way, for that day will not come until the rebellion occurs and the man of lawlessness is revealed, the man doomed to destruction. He will oppose and will exalt himself over everything that is called God or is worshiped, so that he sets himself up in God’s temple, proclaiming himself to be God. (2 Thessalonians 2/3-4)

False prophets and teachers: But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will be false teachers among you, who will secretly bring in destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing upon themselves swift destruction. And many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of truth will be blasphemed. And in their greed they will exploit you with false words. Their condemnation from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep. (2 Peter 2/1-3) .

The Roman Catholic Church (RCC) falsely describes itself as: “The one, holy, catholic and apostolic church, founded by Christ himself.” The ultimate objective of the RCC is to be reunited with the historically separated denominations and to integrate them into itself. Though the RCC is not a WCC member, since the Second Vatican Council (1961-65) it has been heavily involved with ecumenism. The spirit of Antichrist working through the ecumenical movement will finally bring all churches, cults and religions into a deviant one world church regardless of doctrine and truth will be thrown to the ground (Daniel 8/12). We see this progressing in front of our very eyes….. the ultimate outcome being: BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH (Revelation 17/5). The mother harlot is the Roman Catholic Church and her daughters are the “separated brethren”, those denominations who reintegrate with her and accept all of her apostasies and abominations. Why is it that so very many church leaders today tragically do not see (or claim not to see) that the ecumenism is a deception and that their involvement in it is doomed? These stooges of Satan will be destroyed when he has finished using them: And the ten horns that you saw, they and the beast will hate the prostitute. They will make her desolate and naked, and devour her flesh and burn her up with fire….. (Revelation 17/16)

Considering the dire warnings given in the scriptures, Bible believing Christians should not support or have any part of the Antichrist ecumenical system or belong to any church that promotes or flirts with ecumenism. Participation and acceptance is just as much sin as worshipping the false gods of other religions. God’s Word specifically commands true believers to “come out of her” – this is not optional: Then I heard another voice from heaven saying, “Come out of her, my people, lest you take part in her sins, lest you share in her plagues. (Revelation 18/4; see also 2 Corinthians 6/17)

The ecumenical movement has rejected the Bible as the infallible word of God and has its own distorted Bible version which is sanctioned by Rome. Furthermore, essential Christian doctrine such as creationism, the virgin birth of Jesus Christ, a literal hell, the inerrancy of the Bible are all denied by the ecumenical movement. The ecumenical movement suppresses the message of the gospel regarding sin, repentance and personal salvation and replaces it with a “social gospel” of secular political activism around mostly liberal issues such as social justice, ending poverty etc.

Many today validate their so called “ministries” by the presence of signs as proof that God is at work However signs and wonders are definitely not proof that God is at work. The acid test is always the scriptures regardless of manifestations.


“Not everyone who says to me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but the one who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. On that day many will say to me, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in your name, and cast out demons in your name, and do many mighty works in your name?’ And then will I declare to them, ‘I never knew you; depart from me, you workers of lawlessness.’  (Matthew 7/21-23)

Ecumenism plus charismatic lying signs and wonders will be the hallmark of the second person of the unholy trinity, the false prophet (Revelation 13/13; 19/20). Those people who refuse to love the truth (the scriptures) will be utterly deceived by lying signs and wonders (2 Thessalonians 2/9) and will worship the beast (Antichrist).

The coming of the lawless one is by the activity of Satan with all power and false signs and wonders, and with all wicked deception for those who are perishing, because they refused to love the truth and so be saved. (2 Thessalonians 2/9-10)

For the time is coming when people will not endure sound teaching, but having itching ears they will accumulate for themselves teachers to suit their own passions, and will turn away from listening to the truth and wander off into myths. (2 Timothy 4/3-4)

And the great dragon was thrown down, that ancient serpent, who is called the devil and Satan, the deceiver of the whole world—he was thrown down to the earth, and his angels were thrown down with him. (Revelation 12/9).

“Discernment is not knowing the difference between right and wrong. It is knowing the difference between right and almost right.”
—C.H. Spurgeon

Ecumenical ‘Churches Together’ in Leicester – Breakfast 10th May

“This event was inspired by a sermon preached by David Hind from Trinity Life Church.” - We should not be surprised! Any leader that validates the ministry of necromancer Benny Hinn and approves of gambling by utilising lottery funding at the expense of the gospel is an enemy of the cross of Christ (Phillipians 3/18). In biblical terms a leader should be beyond reproach with purity of doctrine (Titus 2/8).
