(2 Cor 6:14)
WASHINGTON — An ecumenical event featuring Hillsong United, Lecrae, Michael W. Smith, Josh McDowell, Ravi Zacharias, Francis Chan and other renown evangelical and Catholic speakers and musicians that is set to take place in Washington, D.C. is raising concerns as it seeks to draw a million attendees to “link arms” in unity, including with the Vatican.
“Together 2016” is an event to be held on July 16 at the National Mall in Washington, and seeks to unite those of various backgrounds to “stand together for Jesus.” Both Christians and Catholics alike will be featured at the prayer and worship event.

Contemporary Christian Music and Rome (Way of Life Literature)
Contemporary Christian Music is ecumenical music. In fact, Contemporary Christian Music is one of the most powerful forces of the end-times ecumenical movement. It is the music of the “one-world church.”
In his book Making Musical Choices, Richard Peck makes the following important observation about modern church music.
“Aside from its commercialism and its increasing resemblance to the world, contemporary Christian music is becoming a religious melting pot. Some in the community admit that they are not believers. And while this is still an exception, CCM IS PROUD OF ITS ECUMENICAL AND CHARISMATIC SPIRIT. THIS ECUMENISM EXTENDS OPEN ARMS TOWARD APOSTATE PROTESTANT DENOMINATIONS AND THE ROMAN CATHOLIC CHURCH” (Making Musical Choices, Bob Jones University, 1986, p. 86).
NOT ONE popular CCM musician that I know of stands against ecumenism and stands boldly for ecclesiastical separation.
Contemporary Christian Music is at home in the most ecumenical of contexts.

Romans 16:17 says, 'Now I beseech you, brethren, mark them which cause divisions and offenses contrary to the doctrine which ye have learned and avoid them.' Galatians 1:6-9 warns us about those who teach another gospel. The passage says nothing about linking arms with such individuals. Instead it communicates that those who present a contrary doctrine are to be accursed.
Despite such clear warnings from Scripture, there's an ecumenical event that's taking place on July 16th bringing evangelicals and Catholics together on the national mall. It's reported that more than 1,000 churches nationwide have pledged to attend this event called, Together 2016.
Joining Jim to discuss this issue was Mike Gendron. Mike was a devout Roman Catholic for over 30 years and was taught to rely upon the authority of the church. He followed the priests, the sacraments and was depending upon his own good works for salvation. However, in 1981, after attending an apologetics seminar called, 'Evidence for the Christian Faith', the Bible became his sole authority in all matters of faith. As he searched the Scriptures he was amazed to see how often the Bible contradicts the teaching and tradition of the church he had been a part of for so long. Eventually, Mike placed his trust in Jesus Christ as Savior. He founded a ministry, Proclaiming the Gospel, that points people to Jesus Christ as the all-sufficient Savior.

The Bible tells Christians to exercise discernment so we can separate truth from error. So why do statistics show so many evangelicals compromising on the gospel and biblical doctrine? Mike Gendron, founder of Proclaiming the Gospel, says we've experienced a tragic loss of biblical discernment. He'll join me to explain why and how we can return to the Word of God.
