141. “Greater Oneness in Christ”: What Does it Mean?

September 1st, 2017

 

“In the journey to overcome internal divisions separating Christians, the top leadership of the World Council of Churches (WCC), Pentecostal World Fellowship (PWF), World Evangelical Alliance (WEA), and the Vatican’s officials for promoting Christian Unity met together, for the first time, in a historic meeting, spending two days facilitating their support of the Global Christian Forum (GCF)”.

“. . . ‘Historic’ may be an overused description, especially when the term is applied not by historians writing 3-4 generations in the future, but by reporters talking about current events. According to the event’s press release, the ecumenical meeting was historic because these leaders – representing almost the whole of present-day Christianity – committed themselves to work towards ‘greater oneness in Christ’ and pledged to reinforce such a direction in a series of events that will take place in 2018. . .”
