Adventists, Roman Catholics, and Evangelicals "Break Bread"

In the context of the ecumenical movement, "breaking bread" refers primarily to the act of sharing the Eucharist (for Catholics) or Holy Communion (for Protestants) among the various Christian denominations. This act symbolizes unity, fellowship, and the breaking down of barriers between the different religious traditions.

From May 13-24, 2024, Roman Catholics, Evangelicals, and Seventh-day Adventists celebrated an ecumenical "Bible" feast. The Roman Catholic Church of Saint Michael, located in Kassel, Germany, stated that they were delighted to celebrate with their Seventh-day Adventist brothers in Christ [1] and issued the following announcement about the ecumenical Bible Week, culminating with breaking bread at an ecumenical service in a Catholic Church. [2]

The announcement stated that "the Bible connects" and listed the following:

• A warm invitation to the ecumenical Bible evening

• God's creation, gift, and responsibility

• Tuesday, May 13, 2024, 7:00 p.m. - Protestant Parish Kassel-Wehlheiden Advent Church

• Thursday, May 16, 2024, 7:00 p.m. - Advent Church Kassel Seventh-day Adventists

• Tuesday, May 21, 2024, 7:00 p.m. - Independent Evangelical Lutheran Church, St. Michaelis

• Thursday, May 23, 2024, 7:00 p.m. - Evangelical Parish of Kassel Sudstadt Markuskirche

• Friday, May 24, 2024, 7:00 p.m. - Ecumenical service at the Catholic Church of St. Michael

• The Bible evenings are intended as a series but can also be attended individually.

The ecumenical movement seeks to promote unity and cooperation among all churches, and we can see how it is drawing the world into the arms of Rome. We see various churches in full communion, breaking bread together in a Roman Catholic Church. When participants from different denominations "break bread" together, it represents a tangible expression of their commitment to overcoming divisions and fostering a sense of shared faith and community. Breaking bread is both a literal act of sharing a meal and a metaphorical expression of fellowship and spiritual communion.

By participating in this shared ecumenical ritual, members of the ecumenical movement demonstrate their desire to achieve greater understanding and solidarity among each other, emphasizing their common beliefs and avoiding doctrinal differences. This is the heart of Pope Francis' message, as outlined in his encyclical Fratelli Tutti. Breaking bread (Eucharist) is a powerful symbol of reconciliation and mutual respect, aimed at achieving unity with the man of sin.

In contrast to the ecumenical movement, the mission of the Remnant Church is fundamentally centered on engaging the world with the intent of sharing the everlasting gospel in context with the Three Angels' Messages of Revelation 14. This is not just present truth, but our present duty. This evangelistic drive is rooted in the Great Commission, where Jesus instructed His followers to "go and make disciples of all nations" (Matthew 28:19). Revelation 14 is a fulfillment of this commission.

Our main purpose is to spread the message of salvation through Jesus and warn people against the beast, the image, and the mark. Only as we proclaim this message will the church fulfill its divine mandate. Every activity and initiative undertaken by God's people ultimately serves this primary mission of leading people of all denominations to embrace the commandments of God and the faith of Jesus (Revelation 14:12).
