Those great and well known “Christian” experts, former Presidents Jimmah Cahtah, Bill Clinton and many other Baptist leaders met in Atlanta for what was called “Celebration of a New Baptist Covenant.” Also attending were Obama, (Church of Christ) and Hillary, (United Methodist Church).[BOLD represents my emphasis and comments]
Included were …. Baptists from throughout North America and former members of the Southern Baptist Convention [who were] upset by its rightward shift. Carter was a lead organizer of the event.
“Thousands of participants prayed and held hands across a massive exhibit hall at the first session Wednesday night. Carter, a longtime Bible teacher at his ., church, called the three-day gathering “the most momentous event in my religious life.”
He [Carter] called animosity among Christians “a cancer metastasizing in the body of Christ.”
This is a great illustration of the lie of modern religious ecumenism which is forging the platform for the New World Order and the New World Religion of the last days.
The former president insisted the meeting was strictly religious, not political. [Even though] It is being held just days before Feb. 5, when 24 states will hold presidential primaries or caucuses.
Former and are among the major speakers. Earlier in the day, at a separate meeting of the black Baptist groups, Sens. and spoke about their presidential candidacies.
Critics have dismissed the event as little more than a Democratic rally.
We concur — except, instead of Democrat. they should say Extreme Liberal.. (Same thing).
However, they all heavily emphasize Scripture on social justice.
This is nothing more than spreading the “social gospel” — which is no gospel at all.
Carter and many other Baptists severed ties with the Southern Baptist Convention when conservatives took control of the denomination in the 1970s and 1980s, waging a bitter fight over interpreting the Bible.

This ecumenical meeting of those who call themselves “Christians” never mention nor promote the main tenet of Christian Theology, The Gospel of Jesus Christ, the death, burial and resurrection of Jesus to pay the sin debt for every person in the world — and by putting our trust in Jesus, we have eternal life. These folks are preaching and organizing a world-wide anti-Biblical movement which dilutes the Gospel in favor of a false “do-good” religion of works/deeds. This organization of theological liberals is contrary to God’s Word!
Now, here is the Good News:
