ECT, ECT II, ECT III… How many are there?
The evangelical compromise with Catholics began in 1994 with the publication of the first ECT document (Evangelicals and Catholics Together: The Christian Mission in the Third Millennium). Most people also remember the heretical follow-up in 1997 (The Gift of Salvation). Fewer still are likely to remember the third ECT document (Your Word is Truth).
Well, I knew that they were working on a fourth ECT in 2002 to find common ground regarding the communion of the saints. But I kind of lost track of these heretical undertakings as their publicity has waned. This morning I discovered ECT VII, published in November, 2009. The title of the document: “Do Whatever He Tells You: The Blessed Virgin Mary in Christian Faith and Life.”
A major impact of the ECT movement has been to create the misunderstanding among evangelicals that Roman Catholicism is a valid representation of Christianity. It is not. And believing the lie will result in the future conversion of our erstwhile evangelical children to the ancient and “infallible” religion of Catholicism.
