There were many key figures, chiefest perhaps being Billy Graham, who said in 1978, “I used to believe that pagans in far-off countries were lost – were going to hell – if they did not have the gospel of Jesus Christ preached to them. I no longer believe that.”
Billy Graham began working with the Roman Catholic Church, and he has been replaced with men like Rick Warren who speak of the Pope as “our Pope.”
Of course, if you go against their ambitions you are deemed unloving, but I choose to stand with the apostles and prophets who exposed false teachers. Love rejoices in the truth, and Paul rightly asks, “what communion hath light with darkness?”
The ecumenical movement makes an idol out of unity at the expense of the truth. To support it is to support a false gospel.
