Welcome to Laodicea!

I was rather encouraged to discover that the musings in my brief missive entitled Global Warming Evangelists Part 2 were, perhaps, not entirely off the mark.

Apparently Herescope has been running a series on the ecumenical harlotry of the global church, which is of course a key player in the end-times prophecies of Revelation.

Herescope well states:
"The "new world order" of mission activity is vastly different. The mission movement was intentionally set up based on the systems model (also known as General Systems Theory -- see previous posts). "Networking" is more sophisticated than simple ecumenism. It is a way to burrow down deeply through organizational structures through stealth to infiltrate and diffuse new ideas that will begin to change things. Networking has the effect of leaven, when it comes to doctrine and practice, permeating an existing organization with new thoughts, new ideas, and new doctrines via missionary training, cross-pollination with other groups, partnerships, and the more sophisticated "collaboration."
