Seventh-day Adventists in Spain join the Jesuits in

On May 28, 2022, DEIA, a daily newspaper in Basque Country, an autonomous community in Northern Spain, published a story about an "inter-religious celebration" that included "prayers," "songs," and statements about "peace" and "love." The DEIA newspaper reported on the ecumenical event as follows:

"The event began at 7:00 p.m. with a Buddhist dance for peace … after which the moment called for peace … an inter-religious celebration was held with the participation of children and youth from the different religious communities, a prayer, symbol, characteristic song of each confession was performed, around peace, love … The event was attended by representatives of the Catholic Church, the Ukrainian Greek-Catholic community, the Evangelical Council of Euskadi, the Evangelical Church of Philadelphia, the Adventist Church, the Assalam Mosque, the Bader Mosque, the Al Furkan Mosque, the Rekalde Mosque, the Mourides Brotherhood, the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints, the Baha'i Community, the Buddhist Community and the Taoist Community. This Forum has the collaboration of the Pedro Arrupe Human Rights Institute of the University of Deusto and the Ignacio Ellacuria Social Foundation."

This ecumenical peace event was organized in collaboration with two prominent Jesuit organizations in Spain. The first was the Pedro Arrupe Human Rights Institute at the University of Deusto. Pedro Arrupe was the 28th Superior General of the Jesuit Order. What business does any Seventh-day Adventist have to do with an organization dedicated to the black pope, a Jesuit superior general? The Ignacio Ellacuria Social Foundation was the second group that helped to sponsor this interfaith gathering. This is another Jesuit institution named after Ignacio Ellacuria. He was one of six Jesuit priests killed in El Salvador during the Civil War. This foundation's mission is to "build an intercultural, inclusive society through diverse exercises that increase encounter, reflection, dialogue, and transformation of the host society with an openness to cultural diversity and religious pluralism."

Rome's invitation to join their Jesuit-led universal fraternity is a very well-conceived and very well-executed plan for our conversion. They are turning truth into relativism. It is a forum where all views, except biblical truth, are celebrated. It makes you indifferent to other religions. Its objective is to overthrow our faith. It doesn't ask Rome to change because Rome never changes. It is changing Adventism. It is very easy to blend in with the world; but standing up to the prevailing apostasy is always more difficult. Nonetheless, this is the challenge we face today. This generation must be called to repentance and turned to the living God. In these last days, the faithful company of believers who are not compromising their faith will be committed to preparing a people for the coming of the Lord.
