Protestants are Returning to Rome
"And his deadly wound was healed: and all the world wondered after the beast.” Revelation 13:3.
A new poll has come out confirming that Catholics and Protestants have become indistinguishable from each other. Pew Research Center conducted a survey on the eve of the 500 Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation that states that both Protestants and Catholics in Europe and in the U.S. "now overwhelmingly express a willingness to accept each other as neighbors and even as family members." (http://www.pewforum.org/2017/08/31/after-500-years-reformation-era-divisions-have-lost-much-of-their-potency)
According to the new poll, in Protestant Germany, the birthplace of Martin Luther's Reformation, 78% of Protestants believe that their distinctive faith is more similar and more in common to Roman Catholicism and only 19% of Protestants believe the two faiths are actually "different." These feelings that Protestants and Catholics have more similarities than differences is also shared by Roman Catholics and Protestants all throughout Europe and even in America. This is what 50 years of ecumenism will do to you; it will bring you back to Rome.
Rome's agents have used the ecumenical movement to first bring the Protestant Churches to the table, and now after 50 years of "dialog" they have come to view matters in the same light. Protestantism is now converting over to Roman Catholicism and is "wondering after the beast." All of Europe is going over to Rome and Protestant America is next in the agenda:
"The Protestants of the United States will be foremost in stretching their hands across the gulf to grasp the hand of Spiritualism; they will reach over the abyss to clasp hands with the Roman power; and under the influence of this threefold union, this country will follow in the steps of Rome in trampling on the rights of conscience" (Great Controversy, 588).
The image of the beast is forming before our eyes as we see these words being fulfilled. When this prophetic statement was written over 100 years ago, at that time any hopes of reconciliation between Catholics and Protestants seemed impossible to everyone. But look at the situation today - Protestants can't seem to compromise their faith fast enough! They are running to Rome for reconciliation and are shedding the image of being a "rebellious daughter." They are returning by and large, collectively, to their "mother church."
The overwhelming majority today see these previously irreconcilable faiths as identical in almost every way. When Rome looks at the Protestant churches she sees an image of herself. This is scary when you think about it because Rome never changes. The goal of Rome has almost been complete, which is to totally abolish the Reformation's "protest." The old, long-standing, historical, Protestant faith with its protest has been an obstacle in preventing Rome from regaining her supremacy in both spiritual and political matters. However, every obstacle that is standing in the way must be removed as Rome achieves her ultimate objective. The Reformation's protest has been silenced all thanks to the disastrous results of the Vatican-Protestant interfaith dialog and cooperation. May this be a warning sign to every church and to every Christian believer.
"It was by associating with idolaters and joining in their festivities that the Hebrews were led to transgress God's law and bring His judgments upon the nation. So now it is by leading the followers of Christ to associate with the ungodly and unite in their amusements that Satan is most successful in alluring them into sin. 'Come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean.' 2 Corinthians 6:17" (Patriarchs and Prophets, 458).

Penang Adventist Hospital Wishes you a Happy Deepavali

A Seventh-day Adventist Academy in Tocantins, a state in central Brazil, decided to “honor” November 20, the national day of black awareness in Brazil.

COP26: Adventism’s New Obsession to Join the Climate Change Movement
It is beyond belief that the Seventh-day Adventist Church does not believe in getting involved in the national debate on abortion or the LGBT+ agenda. No, we can’t get involved in the real moral problems of our time that are so widespread in the world today because we have lost our prophetic voice to defend the law of God in the public arena. So instead of shedding light to these

Fatal heresies are attempting to undermine the foundations of our faith. A false and misguided unity is bringing all the churches together and they are exalting Romanism (the Holy Eucharist) and ecumenism above the word of God. There is an endeavor underway in the ecumenical movement to eliminate the practice of closed communion. The "Eucharistic Hospitality" is the fruit of 60 years of ecumenism. It is a modern ecumenical ceremony
Religion In America Is Not As You Might Think It Is

900 Catholic Masses for President Donald Trump

It is called Catholics for Trump 2020 and it is motivating Roman Catholics to support the re-election of Donald Trump by appealing to the abortion issue. The website says: “Catholics for Trump will energize and activate
The Tragic end of the Protestant Reformation
The Protestant Reformation's greatest moment came when Martin Luther sat in the Diet of Worms during his climatic defense of the Holy Scriptures. Facing the threat of execution, Luther stood on trial before the Roman Catholic Magistrates to answer the accusation of heresy because he was being accused of challenging the Church's teachings and for defying the pope. When asked to recant his positions, Luther famously replied with the statement:
