Revelation 6:10 “And they cried with a loud voice, saying, How long, O Lord, holy and true, dost thou not judge and avenge our blood on them that dwell on the earth?”
Things are moving fast politically and religiously. Politicians are moving toward a one world government while the ecumenists are moving toward a one world religion. In just a few days , November 17 - 19, 2014, there will be held in the Vatican a conglomeration of various “Christian” denominations and other faiths to talk about the family and marriage. Surely a rational thinking person would not be against this?
http://www.humanum.it/en/about.html An International Interreligious Colloquium on The Complementarity of Man and Woman Nov 17 - 19 - “The Complementarity of Man and Woman: An International Colloquium is a gathering of leaders and scholars from many religions across the globe, to examine and propose anew the beauty of the relationship between the man and the woman, in order to support and reinvigorate marriage and family life for the flourishing of human society. Witnesses will draw from the wisdom of their religious tradition and cultural experience as they attest to the power and vitality of the complementary union of man and woman. It is hoped that the colloquium be a catalyst for creative language and projects, as well as for global solidarity, in the work? of strengthening the nuptial relationship, both for the good of the spouses themselves and for the good of all who depend upon them.
The Colloquium is sponsored by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and co-sponsored by the Pontifical Council for the Family, the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, and? the Pontifical Council for the Promotion of Christian Unity.”

http://www.religionnews.com/2014/11/03/vatican-to-host-religious-leaders-tackle-marriage-family-issues/ Russell Moore, Rick Warren to join Vatican conference on marriage and family life 3/11/2014 (Edited by DCB) “The Vatican will host religious leaders from across the religious spectrum later this month for a conference where they are expected to defend traditional marriage as between a man and a woman.” “Organizers say the new conference will show that while the Catholic hierarchy is split on how to address contemporary challenges to marriage and family life, the church can nonetheless seek common ground with religious leaders outside the Vatican.” “The gathering will be sponsored by the Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith and co-sponsored by the Pontifical Council for the Family, the Pontifical Council for Interreligious Dialogue, and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity.”
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dVCY8pW-ACs “Part II of our exclusive interview RICK WARREN, pastor of Saddleback Church in Southern California. Rick talks about the expansion of his ministry abroad, the Vatican delegation that recently came to Orange County to study his church's style of evangelization, and which television channel he finds himself watching most often and the show that draws him.”
This is a MUST to watch. At about one minute and twenty three seconds Warren in talking about his writing the Purpose Driven Life mentions he would light candles! Did he not pay the light bill? He then mentions Thomas Kempis and Brother Lawrence and St. John of the Cross. He calls the works of these men as great classical devotional works! At about 3 minutes he speaks of “our new Pope”! Why did he not say “the” new pope? Then Warren goes into a love fest about how Pope Francis is soooo loving and this is what the world expects of us Christians. Warren then continued by quoting a news paper headline that read “If you love Pope Francis you’ll love Jesus”. This is the so-called pastor of America!? At six minutes and 40 seconds Warren and his wife welcome on stage two men of which one is a Roman Catholic priest. Warren was certainly not taught Biblical separation and if he was he missed that class. At 13 minutes and 55 seconds he repeats the old cliche of Augustine “In essentials, unity; in non-essentials, liberty; in all things, charity.” Evangelicals, new Evangelicals and the New Fundamentalist LOVE this quote and seek to practice it as well! At 20 minutes and 55 seconds he says he fully supports the Catholic Church’s new evangelization. At 22 minutes he mentions that at Saddleback they do baptism the old fashioned way in which he seemingly demonstrates a motion of immersion. Old fashion or Biblical! One of Warren’s favourite television shows is the Chaplet of Divine Mercy on the Catholic station Eternal Word Television Network (EWTN). The Catholic interviewer told Warren he could thank Mother Angelica for the programme which Warren did at 25minutes and 34 seconds! At 25 minutes and 53 seconds the interviewer talks about the three images Warren has on the wall of his office. The first that is mentioned is Mother Teresa, the second is Martin Luther King and the third is Billy Graham. Warren then states the only one missing is Pope John Paul II. So here are four that according to Warren has taught him a lesson for living. If you can take the time to watch and listen please do so. This is APOSTASY SPEAKING! How does the Southern Baptist Convention (SBC) continue to allow this man and his church to remain? Where are the so-called SBC conservatives!!
As I write this on a Thursday Warren and these other ecumenists will be meeting at the Vatican on Monday the 17th of November. What a motley crowd this will be. There will be Roman Catholics, Southern Baptists, Mormons, Muslims and others to numerous to mention. The Pope which rules over the whore of John’s Revelation will give an address to this compromising crowd. The question must be asked “Would any true born again Bible believer attend such a meeting?” Not if they believed what the apostle Paul said under the leading of the Holy Ghost “Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? 15 And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16 And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17 Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you” 2Corinthians 6:14 - 17! Then in Titus Paul wrote “For the grace of God that bringeth salvation hath appeared to all men, 12 Teaching us that, denying ungodliness and worldly lusts, we should live soberly, righteously, and godly, in this present world; 13 Looking for that blessed hope, and the glorious appearing of the great God and our Saviour Jesus Christ; 14 Who gave himself for us, that he might redeem us from all iniquity, and purify unto himself a peculiar people, zealous of good works. 15 These things speak, and exhort, and rebuke with all authority. Let no man despise thee” Titus 2:11 - 15.
