Reformed churches endorse Catholic-Lutheran accord

This decision by the WCRC - representing 80 million members of Congregational, Presbyterian, Reformed, United, Uniting and Waldensian churches - marked another step in a gradual but remarkable reconciliation on this issue among Christians who once fought wars and declared each other heretics over just such questions.

The World Methodist Council formally endorsed the Catholic-Lutheran accord, known as the Joint Declaration on the Doctrine of Justification, in 2006. The Anglican Communion is expected to do the same later this year.

Historic though it is, the resolution of this theological dispute will not soon lead to changes that people in the pews would notice, such as sharing Communion between Catholics and Protestants, or mutual recognition of each other’s ministers. ...

1577 ekklēsía
Not denying that all believers comprise the church of the living God. (Eph 5:25) However, ekklesia was understood to be a called out assembly of people that met together. The same word is used of the assembly that was at the temple of Diana (Acts 19:39,41) . More than once you find the phrase about the whole church being gathered together. If we are to follow the New Testament pattern that was established, believers, unless Providentially hindered, should attend a local assembly of believers.

The church is made up of believers, and those believers were put under an under shepherd who had spiritual responsibility for and to them and vise versa. (Hebrews 13:17) Positions of leadership and what they were to do and their qualifications are found in several epistles. Responsibility of believers to each other is also written in that context of a local assembly.. (not that it was the only place those duties could be done but it was the group to which you minister your gifts and responsibilities)

1Timothy 3:15 But if I tarry long, that thou mayest know how thou oughtest to behave thyself in the house of God, which is the church of the living God, the pillar and ground of the truth.

Either one is with Christ or one is against Him. Their is no neutrality, either one is a slave to righteousness or one is loyal to unrighteousness. For who I say He is matters, just as how one describes the functions of the offices that Christ holds. As being the God man, how He alone has to be ones only mediator alone, how Christ is the only one, who can justify one alone, how His finished works don't need to be added to, & etc. As how one responds is a good indactor that reveals ones relationship to Christ, in knowing Him scripturally, from spending time in His holy word amen.

Mat 16:18  And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it. 

Church- HELPS Word-studies
1577 ekklēsía(from 1537 /ek, "out from and to" and 2564 /kaléō, "to call") – properly, people called out from the world and to God, the outcome being the Church (the mystical body of Christ) – i.e. the universal (total) body of believers whom God calls out from the world and into His eternal kingdom.

American Tract Dictionary (1859) wrote:
CHURCH:

The Greek word translated church signifies generally an assembly, either common or religious; and it is sometimes so translated, as in Ac 19:32,39. In the New Testament it usually means a congregation of religious worshippers, either Jewish, as Ac 7:38, or Christians, as Mt 16:18 1Co 6:4. The latter sense is the more common one; and it is thus used in a twofold manner, denoting,
1. The universal Christian church: either the invisible church, consisting of those whose names are written in heaven, whom God knows, but whom we cannot infallibly know, Heb 12:23; or the visible church, made up of the professed followers of Christ on earth, Col 1:24 1Ti 3:5,15
2. A particular church or body of professing believers, who meet and worship together in one place; as the churches of Rome, Corinth, Ephesus, Philippi, etc., to which Paul addressed epistles.

With as much attention that is paid to elders of a Church, [URL=http://tinyurl.com/jcuow6w]]]http://tinyurl.com/jcuow6w (Qualifications for the Evaluation of Elders and Deacons)[/URL], churches were more than family get-togethers.

"Indeed, I marvel at the allegiance some have for a particular church or denomination. In many cases, it seems to rival if not surpass the preeminence that should be Christ's alone."
Indeed sister. Many boast of being 'reformed' 'baptist' 'roman catholic' etc. Yet Christ is the ONLY One we should boast in. Organized religion is imperfect and often leads many astray, best to stick with the bible and stay glued to our Lord. The 'church' isn't a building or any one particular denomination - it is sinners called out of darkness and into His marvelous light, sinners from every tribe, tongue and nation.

This is ecumenism at its finest. All these man- made denominations/religions lining up is no surprise to the true elect of God. This is another reason why it is wise NOT to identify with any particular group/camp like 'reformed' or Roman Catholicism.
Good comment, sister. Indeed, I marvel at the allegiance some have for a particular church or denomination. In many cases, it seems to rival if not surpass the preeminence that should be Christ's alone.

Jeremiah Johnson wrote:
Standing together for the gospel, then, is standing in agreement with Christ’s own assertions to His uniqueness: “I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me” (John 14:6). It’s echoing the words Peter boldly proclaimed to the Sanhedrin, that “there is salvation in no one else; for there is no other name under heaven that has been given among men by which we must be saved” (Acts 4:12).

In spite of the innate exclusivity of the gospel, the world’s religions attempt to position themselves as co-laborers with Christianity. They might highlight similar stances on social issues, or simply try to identify a common enemy—whatever it takes to present the illusion of unity.

Worse still, many Christians are all too happy to lend those false religions spiritual credibility by operating as cobelligerents....

" the church as an establishment is in its own delusion.... remaining silent as they are led like sheep..." What church penned? Are you speaking of the visible church, or the elect of God? It would be beneficial to be more specific.

it was alternative news that forced the issue of the high level official inside the Vatican arrested for drugs and perversions!

high ups that engage in these behaviors and they push out anyone with decency

it was alternative news that has brought the details as MSM turns a blind eye

to international child trafficking by the elite.

did the famous reformers sit in their offices and pontificate???

no! they dealt with the real corruption of the priests of the day...

...what do our pastors do now?

pontificate about philosophies while evil men openly advertise their evil art???

and then these same perverts go on tv and create false Russian narratives with stings they created in the first place to entrap their opposition to protect themselves from trial.

anyone still waiting for God's judgment to pour down? it already is... the church as an establishment is in its own delusion.... remaining silent as they are led like sheep...
