Everyday ecumenism in County Fermanagh as Protestant leaders habitually cosy up with Roman Catholic Church

Ecumenism seems to be a way of life in Enniskillen, County Fermanagh.

The Fermanagh Churches Forum is one of the most organised and active of the localised ecumenical groupings dotted throughout our country.

It is now, according to its website engaged in a series of ‘Lenten lunches’, the first of which took place last week.

Nothing wrong with lunch or indeed Lent, one might say, and they would be right.

However, it is the venue and the participants which are of concern.

The first in the four lunch series took place last Wednesday, 21st February in St Michael’s Parish Centre, next to St Michael’s Catholic Church.

As if that wasn’t questionable enough, the lunch was followed by “Scripture reflection and prayer”. We again repeat the question – to whom are these prayers being addressed?

The Roman Catholic Church teaches of prayer to Mary and all manner of their so-called Saints. Are prayers offered up to these characters and are members of Protestant churches sitting with their heads bowed while these unholy invocations are being made?

One does not have to actually commit these evil deeds to be implicated thereby.

We are warned of this in 2 John 1:9-11: “Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son. If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds.”

Mary worship or prayer to any other than God through His Son, the Lord Jesus Christ is absolutely outside the doctrine of Christ. The Roman Catholic Church therefore “abideth not in the doctrine of Christ” and therefore “hath not God”.

As Rome does not have God, then what are supposed Protestant denominations taking anything to do with them for?

The series of Lenten lunches continues this Wednesday in the Methodists’ Church Hall, then the Church of Ireland the following week before wrapping up on 14th March in the Presbyterian hall.

It is the latest in a prolific line of ecumenical gatherings among the four ‘mainstream’ churches in our province.

Earlier this month the Fermanagh Churches Forum organised a special day of prayer which also took in an exciting tour of Enniskillen, starting in the Presbyterian Church before going to the Roman Catholic chapel, the Church of Ireland and wrapping up at the Methodist Church.

And a few weeks before that the Fermanagh Churches Forum held its own service as part of the Week of Prayer for Christian Unity, the folly of which we highlighted previously.

This Fermanagh Churches Forum is an example of everyday ecumenism and must be opposed vehemently.

We implore anyone connected with the churches involved in this corruption of true Christianity to “come out from among them, and be ye separate”.

Let us follow the example Paul laid before us when, under the inspiration of God, he wrote in Hebrews 13:13: “Let us go forth therefore unto him without the camp, bearing his reproach.”

It doesn’t matter what anyone else says to us, being at the centre of God’s will is by far the best place to be. We trust all reading this will make this their firm desire and purpose in this day of deepening ecumenism and apostasy.
