At an Ecumenical Gathering with Catholics and Protestants,

A large group of ecumenical clergy from all over Malaysia's Sarawak province gathered to pray, sing, and worship together. In the Christian Ecumenical Worship Center on July 21, 2022, believers from the Roman Catholic, Anglican, Seventh-day Adventist, Evangelical, Methodist, The Salvation Army, Baptist, and even some indigenous faiths gathered "shoulder to shoulder."

The ecumenical celebration began with traditional music, shouting, and indigenous tribal dancing. These ancient rituals were similar to those practiced by the primitive animists and pagans that first inhabited what is now the country of Malaysia. As the clergy entered the building, it was interesting to note that these shamans, or witch doctors (spiritualism), were leading the procession of people from the various churches. This was a truly interfaith, cross-cultural event that included Seventh-day Adventism, Roman Catholicism, apostate Protestantism, and spiritualism.

As seen in a video, the opening prayer was delivered by Simon Peter Poh Hoon Seng, the Archbishop of the local Roman Catholic Archdiocese. He said, in part, the following in his remarks: "Almighty and eternal God, our loving Father in heaven, we stand before you this night as your family. Your Son, our Lord, Jesus Christ, the Word made flesh, has prayed for us that we may be one. Tonight, Heavenly Father, your family, the flock of your Son Jesus Christ, united by the bond of one faith and one Baptism and together with our brothers and sisters from other faiths. "

In the same video, Pastor Terry Valten Simon, a Seventh-day Adventist from the Sarawak Mission, spoke on behalf of the Seventh-day Adventist Church in the video above. The new attitudes that we are encouraging in the ecumenical movement show how the faith is being abandoned. The Seventh-day Adventist Pastor expressed the following:

• Our Father in heaven, we want to pray for Christian unity.

• Help us not to see the difference and weaknesses among us.

• Open our eyes that we may see the need to work together bringing this gospel to all nations.

• We want to be united and seen as a living witness of our holiness in our community.

• There is one body and one Spirit, just as You were called to one hope at Your calling, one Lord, one faith, one baptism, one God and Father of all, who is above all and through all and in all.

We are witnessing how the ecumenical, worldly, Catholic liturgical celebration is causing all the churches to embrace Rome's baptism, Eucharist, and ministry. Vatican II has been embraced by many Seventh-day Adventist pastors, who are urging people to "be united" in a living witness with Rome. We are being instructed to ignore our differences with the other churches and instead seek unity so that we can share a common gospel with the world. Instead of engaging in ecumenical demagoguery that mocks the Three Angels' Messages, we should declare that Babylon is fallen and call people out of her.

We have leaders who no longer agree with the views expressed by Martin Luther about the Roman Catholic Church. Biblical purity, truth, and doctrinal accuracy no longer matter. For too many, the protest is over. If there is no protest, then there isn't any compelling reason to be a Protestant. What follows next is the default position of the ecumenical movement. The default position when the protest ceases is to run to Rome with open arms and become Catholic Seventh-day Adventists.

What we need today are pastors and leaders who will protect and proclaim God's eternal, unchanging truth contained in Revelation 14:6-12. Far too many in the church have hesitated in the face of worldly pressure and are turning away from our mission, which in turn is leading God's people further from Christ. We need leaders and laypeople who are committed to ensuring that our pastors will stand firm on the foundation of the Scriptures and proclaim the Three Angels' Messages to the world.
