Cardinal Koch Pushing Ecumenical Agenda and Receives Praise from ADL

This morning I came across the following:

ADL Praises Cardinal Koch’s Address Calling Anti-Semitism ‘A Betrayal Of The Christian Faith’

New York, NY, May 31, 2012 … The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) today applauded Cardinal Kurt Koch, President of the Vatican’s Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews, on his recent address calling anti-Semitism “a betrayal of the Christian Faith.”

In his May 16 speech at Rome’s Pontifical University of St. Thomas Aquinas, Cardinal Koch, the Vatican’s chief liaison to the Jewish people, strongly affirmed that the Church’s teachings positive teachings about Jews since the 1965 Second Vatican Council are binding on all Catholics. He also warned that Jews and Catholics must remain ever vigilant to maintain the positive relationship launched in 1965, as the dialogue “is constantly put to the test.”

Why is this of importance?

Catholics (as well as certain Protestants) believe that Jews will convert to their final ecumenical religion in the end time.  As President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity, Cardinal Koch’s objective is to get Protestants, Eastern Orthodox, and eventually Jews and others to unite behind the Church of Rome.

I have reported about Kurt Koch since he replaced Cardinal Walter Kasper as President of the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity back in 2010 (e.g. Swiss Bishop Appointed as Ecumenical Head: Antichrist Role?).  He has risen in rank and stature since (see Kurt Koch Made a Cardinal: Might He Become the Antichrist?, Kurt Koch Spoke on Vatican II: More Compromise Coming?, and Pope Sends Unity Message to Eastern Orthodox, and Earlier Called Cardinal Koch Venerable). I believe that if he lives long enough, Cardinal Koch will either become the final Antichrist, support the final Antichrist, or be decide that he will have to oppose him.

To take this a step further, yes, this means that I believe that someone who calls himself “Catholic” and somehow may become pope will be the final Antichrist (Some Doctrines of Antichrist). And I also will add that it is NOT “Catholic bashing” to consider that the final Antichrist will call himself “Catholic” as this is the position of certain Catholic mystics and currently living Catholic priests. I also retain my belief that most non-Anglo-nation-based Protestants will support this (as well as a significant number in the Anglo lands).

Now, as I do not personally know Kurt Koch, I am not saying that he is necessarily anything other than a loyal Catholic bishop and cardinal. And trying to reduce hatred between his church and Jews is not of itself wrong.  And it is appropriate for the ADL to acknowledge proclaimed shifts against anti-Semitic bigotry.

But an ecumenical unity for the world is coming (cf. Revelation 13:3-4) and it will not be faithful to the early and true apostolic traditions or sacred scripture.

Ecumenical unity will be a disaster for the world (cf. Revelation 13, 17, & 18).   American Catholics will find such unity with the Eastern Orthodox especially disturbing if they understood the plan of the Orthodox in this area.

Orthodox Must Reject Unity with the Roman Catholics The talks for unification involve compromise and the apparent rising up of a changed religion that no one should accept.
Some Similarities and Differences Between the Eastern Orthodox Church and the Living Church of God Both groups claim to be the original church, but both groups have differing ways to claim it. Both groups have some amazing similarities and some major differences. Do you know what they are?

The History of Early Christianity Are you aware that what most people believe is not what truly happened to the true Christian church? Do you know where the early church was based? Do you know what were the doctrines of the early church? Is your faith really based upon the truth or compromise?The Churches of Revelation 2 & 3 Do they matter? Most say they must, but act like they do not. This article contains some history about the Church of God (sometimes referred to as the continuation of Primitive Christianity) over the past 2000 years. It also discusses the concept of church eras.
What Do Roman Catholic Scholars Actually Teach About Early Church History? Although most believe that the Roman Catholic Church history teaches an unbroken line of succession of bishops beginning with Peter, with stories about most of them, Roman Catholic scholars know the truth of this matter. This eye-opening article is a must-read for any who really wants to know what Roman Catholic history actually admits about the early church.

Location of the Early Church: Another Look at Ephesus, Smyrna, and Rome What actually happened to the primitive Church? And did the Bible tell about this in advance?
Apostolic Succession What really happened? Did structure and beliefs change? Are many of the widely-held current understandings of this even possible? Did you know that Catholic scholars really do not believe that several of the claimed “apostolic sees” of the Orthodox have apostolic succession–despite the fact that the current pontiff himself seems to wish to ignore this view? Is there actually a true church that has ties to any of the apostles that is not part of the Catholic or Orthodox churches? Read this article if you truly are interested in the truth on this matter!
Early Church History: Who Were the Two Major Groups Professed Christ in the Second and Third Centuries? Did you know that many in the second and third centuries felt that there were two major, and separate, professing Christian groups in the second century, but that those in the majority churches tend to now blend the groups together and claim “saints” from both? “Saints” that condemn some of their current beliefs. Who are the two groups?
