More on the betrayal of the Gospel of grace at “Together 2016”

Last week I posted on the upcoming “Together 2016” ecumenical gathering in Washington D.C.,Hall which is being organized by evangelical Nick Hall (pictured), and will feature a video message from pope Francis. For my previous post, see here.

Others are also questioning how Hall, who hopefully believes in the Gospel of salvation by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone, could invite the leader of a religious institution, which teaches salvation by sacramental grace and merit?

Commenting on the event, Mike Gendron, who leads an evangelistic ministry to Roman Catholics, Proclaiming the Gospel Ministries, said, “Nick Hall either does not know the exclusivity of the Gospel of God or he does not know the Roman Catholic plan of salvation because they are diametrically opposed. We’re divided on how one is born again: Rome says water baptism; the Bible says the work of the Spirit. We’re divided on how one is justified: Rome says faith plus works, the Bible says faith. We’re divided on how one is purified of sin: Rome says purgatory, the Bible says the blood of Jesus. We’re divided on the essentials of the Gospel: Rome has other mediators, the Bible says it’s Christ alone.” See the article immediately below for more information.

In the following article, evangelical pastor, Shane Idleman, also warns against “Together 2016” and its betrayal of the Gospel of grace.

It doesn’t surprise me in the least that the Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, the Luis Palau Association, CRU (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ), Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, the National Day of Prayer, YWAM (Youth With A Mission), the American Bible Society, Hillsong United, Ravi Zacharias, Christine Caine, and Ronnie Floyd are participating in this ecumenical event.

  1. Wow, well scripture says in 1 Timothy 4, “The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron.” Its just so sad to see so many people believe that this is just okay and that this is the way God would want it. This is what happens when you are not heavily grounded in the word you follow people like this.
