On October 19, 2021, the French-speaking Christian Forum in Switzerland published a report about a new interfaith fraternity that was recently created. Catholics, Orthodox, Reformed, Evangelicals, Pentecostals, Old Catholics, Anglicans, Adventists and Baptists gathered together for 4 days in Leysin, Switzerland as they sang, prayed, shared and lived together from October 10 to 13, 2021.
This interfaith forum in Switzerland reported that in “small groups we have taken the time to listen to our faith stories” to “exchange” and “create a bond more than anything.” The aim was to “discover how Christ has chosen our brothers and sisters” and to “lead us” to “love the fraternal communion.” The French-speaking Christian Forum in Switzerland also said that this interfaith encounter was designed to “recognize” the “light” in each other. They said: “Through our sharing, our hymns and our prayers, we have discovered that there are treasures in all the Churches. That diversity enriches us, and we give thanks for it. We cannot do without the other Churches. Let us recognize in them the lights that are missing in ours” (French-speaking Christian Forum in Switzerland).
No matter how much our leaders defend these interfaith encounters, no matter how many articles and speeches they give in support of them, the end result of these activities that Adventists can’t seem to get enough of only serves to further Rome’s ecumenical aspirations as described in “Unitatis Redintegratio” (Decree on Ecumenism). The Vatican’s plan is to unify the separated churches together under the authority of the Pope of Rome. Notice their Decree on Ecumenism: “All Christians will at last, in a common celebration of the Eucharist,be gathered into the one and only Church in that unity which Christ bestowed on His Church from the beginning. We believe that this unity subsists in the Catholic Church as something she can never lose, and we hope that it will continue to increase until the end of time” (Unitatis Redintegratio, the Vatican’s Decree on Ecumenism).
Seventh-day Adventists are spending four days in isolation with churches in Switzerland in order to form “bonds” of fraternity and to see the “light” in each other. Who is it that is ordering us to do this? Whose instructions are we following? This task has never been assigned to us by God. Clearly, this is a fulfillment of Vatican II’s ecumenical proclamation, which was intended to reunite us with the Roman Catholic Church. God has given us a completely different commission. #sda #adventist #adventistas
