Adventist Leaders in Charge of Training Our Pastors took part

There are now classes to get training in the arts of ecumenism and Eucharistic unity. The Secretariat for Ecumenical Activities (SAE) is an interreligious organization devoted to ecumenical formation and training, and it is based in Milan, Italy. The SAE was created in Rome more than 50 years ago to fulfill the Second Vatican Ecumenical Council's vision (Vatican II). Although the SAE includes both Protestants and Catholics, it asserts that all of its members share "the same Lord Jesus Christ, the same faith, and the same Gospel announced and testified by the apostles."

From July 24 to 30, 2022, the SAE hosted an ecumenical training session. This seven-day event brought together "190 Christians of the Adventist, Anglican, Baptist, Catholic, Methodist, Orthodox, Reformed, Waldensian and some of the Jewish faiths." In attendance were "priests, pastors, theologians, teachers, principals, students, seminarians, bishops, consecrated women, members of Catholic Action, Italian Evangelical Youth Federation" and others. The week was spent in "dialogue, study, liturgies, and sharing."

Roman Catholic Bishop Derio Olivero presided over the Eucharist that was offered during the event. According to Rome's ecumenical movement, we are all invited, we are all one, we are all part of Christ; and for this reason, they conclude that participation in the same Eucharistic bread and wine must be followed. On the official program, you will see the celebration of the Eucharist being offered by Derio Olivero. Several other "ecumenical liturgy" and "worship" events were also celebrated.

"Davide Romano" is listed as an "Adventist Theologian" and the featured speaker for one of the seminars for the SAE ecumenical training. Davide Romano is also the Director of the Adventist Institute of Biblical Culture. This is a Seventh-day Adventist university that prepares pastors for the ministry. The Seventh-day Adventist theologian, Saverio Scuccimarri, also attended. He is a professor and the dean of the Adventist Institute of Biblical Culture, the same university that trains future Seventh-day Adventist pastors. The last Seventh-day Adventist who attended this ecumenical training seminar was Michele De Giovanni, a student at the Adventist Theology Faculty in Florence.

Here, seminary students and Seventh-day Adventist theological educators are participating in ecumenical training under the watchful care of Rome. What hope do our up-and-coming pastors have when their spiritual mentors are taking part in ecumenical training sessions that aim to foster Eucharistic unity between Catholics and Protestants? This is an effort to promote harmony so that at the Eucharistic table, Catholics and Protestants can partake in the same bread and wine as "one." This is theologically blasphemous. This contradicts the long-standing practices of the Apostolic Church, the Protestant Reformation, and Seventh-day Adventism while completely ignoring plain biblical teachings.

A global religious unity is being established to promote Rome's idea of a universal fraternity. At the same time, biblical truth and the prophetic warnings that expose the papacy are being suppressed. If you follow the reasoning that justifies embracing Eucharistic unity to its logical conclusion, you can also justify infant baptism, keeping Sunday, and the immortality of the soul.
