I’ve written about this topic before, here and here, but this morning I woke up thinking about it again. If a born again believer hears about someone leaving the Roman Catholic Church they would be filled with joy, they would be ecstatic! In the past we have spoken to several pastors about the ecumenism within their churches. We told them that we were born again and that the Lord led us out of the Roman Catholic Church. The responses from those pastors were disheartening. So my question is how can this be. Why no spontaneous joy for the ones who were delivered from the harlot church of Rome. Why no embracing of them, as a true shepherd would embrace, into the body of believers? Just the opposite occurred and continues to occur, and this should break the heart of every genuinely born again Christian.
Jeremiah 23:1 Woe be unto the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture! saith the LORD.
Jeremiah 10:21 For the pastors are become brutish, and have not sought the LORD: therefore they shall not prosper, and all their flocks shall be scattered.
