A few snippits...

The last time the World Council of Churches staged such a conference was in Brazil nine years ago, when the agenda was heavy with issues about preserving cultural identity and Christian missionary expansion in the former East Bloc.

Now in one of the ancient sites of Christianity the planned discussions highlight some new concerns, including growing rifts among Christians over issues such as same-sex unions, the role of gay pastors and women's contributions to worship.

SNIP

Last month, the World Evangelical Alliance presented the     U.N. Commission on Human Rights with an appeal claiming more than 200 million Christians worldwide are being denied religious liberty. The document listed more than a dozen countries, including China and several nations in Africa and central Asia.

SNIP

Its chief goal, according to organizers, is to advance discussions on ways to reach greater common ground.

PR, this was my first thought too, but I guess that depends on whether or not the word of God is compromised in order to reach that common ground.   I suppose it bears watching very carefully.  Just wondered if anyone sees something there I am missing.

Whats to discuss here, the Bible says "NO". What part of "NO" don't they understand?

The Bible is very clear on these issues.  Why must they be argued again and again by those who wish to "liberalize the Word"?

Forgive my bluntness - but I can't be kind toward this event. I think the whole thing stinks of 'one-world-religion' - ness.  (If you get my point.)  That 'religion' will point to a 'god' compiled from the 'wishes' of the 'popular collective thought'. (Gag me!)

My faith is in the Lord, Who is the Word.  My faith is not dependent on a 'committee of men'.  I am steadfast in my position.  Jesus cannot be rewritten as judges are now rewriting the US Constitution.  Angry

"rifts among Christians"? Who is labeling who a Christian?

Christians can fight over the KJV NIV, or if wine is wine or grape juice. A christian will accept what the Word says

To, me it really depends on which "Churches" are in it. Catholics, Baptists, and Methodists, thats a good start. Lutherians and Pentcostals... depends on which ones. Mormons and JWs... depends on what this Council is trying to do (even cults can have their place when it comes to things such as humnitian aid). I'm going to need a LOT more info on this "Council" before I will have any thoughts on this.

At least they didn't name themselves "Christians Unite!" Grin

Brothers and Sisters,

I will be blunt and say that the title of the organization says it all to me. Our organization is THE BODY OF CHRIST and it is set apart from the world. I'm not interested in a one-world anything, especially a church.

I could care less what a committee says about sin, values, and morality. My source for information of this type will be the Holy Bible, not some world organization. Further, I could care less about being politically correct, changing times, or catering to those who wish to call evil good.

Maybe I'm too bashful on this subject.   Cheesy

Love In Christ,
Tom

Of course I agree with you guys about the obvious parts, but I had to re-read it several times as I could not decide exactly what they are saying about their agenda.

FWIW....the WCOC has been around for about 30 years, now....and it's agenda is the complete secularization of religion...the establishment of one unified religion that everyone is comfortable with. HAH!

It is difficult to find out what they're saying, because what they are saying is obfuscated and generalized into a mish-mash of politically correct ecumenism.

It is predominately from the efforts of the WCOC behind-the-scenes that there is so much furor today among the Anglicans, Episcopalians and Methodists over feminists and homos.  According to the WCOC, the only thing that matters is that "god" is worshipped, not how, or by whom, or even who He is....everyone can call Him what they want, when they want, and how they want.

Truly they are the refuse collection center (trash dump) of religion building their own tower of confusion.
