The Ecumenical Deceit of the Pope





Ecumenical work is a very popular concept nowadays.  What does this mean?  In the Religious world it means that all religions can be one in a way that they can accept one another as ways to God.  The Pope who is the principal head of the Catholic Church speaks on ecumenism as the visible unity of all churches and that all religions lead to God.


The word ecumenism comes from the Greek word oikumene which means the inhabited earth or the world; during the time of the Roman Empire it meant all the subjects of the empire. However, Jesus Christ did not speak about ecumenism, but of unity between those believers who are born of the Spirit of God.


John 17:20 Neither pray I for these alone, but for them also which shall believe on me through their word;

21   That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me.


 The question of oneness here is not from ecumenism. Jesus said, that believers would be one (Greek eis = one) just as the Father and the Son are one.  In the oneness of the Father and the Son is not falsehood and not serving of idols, but love, truth, holiness, righteousness......and so on.  The prayer of Jesus urges His disciples to this oneness which is consistent with the truth of God.  In John 17:21 the word oikumene: ecumenism does not appear.


The word oikumene appears in the Bible in the following instances:



Matthew 24:14 and this gospel of the kingdom shall be preached in the entire world (oikumene) for a witness unto all nations; and then shall the end come.



The gospel, the message of salvation in Christ must be preach in the entire world. Oikumene is not the congregation, but the world, according to the Bible.



Luke 4:5 and the devil, taking him up into an high mountain, shewed unto him all the kingdoms of the world (oikumene) in a moment of time.



Oikumene means the world, and not believers.




Acts 11:28 And there stood up one of them named Agabus, and signified by the Spirit that there should be great dearth throughout the entire world (oikumene): which came to pass in the days of Claudius Caesar.




Oikumene means the world, and not believers.




Acts 19:27 So that not only this our craft is in danger to be set at nought; but also that the temple of the great goddess Diana should be despised, and her magnificence should be destroyed, whom all Asia and the world (oikumene) worshippeth.


Oikumene or ecumenism serves idols, but believers serve God.




Rev 12:9 And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world (oikumene): he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him.


Satan deceives the world oikumene, but God affects the will and works in the disciples of Jesus Christ and God leads His people through His Spirit and Word.


The term Disciples of Jesus Christ is a misused term. It has not been used correctly.  The Bible speaks about the oneness of the believers not about the ecumenism of the believers. Oikumene from which the word ecumenism comes means the world and not oneness of the believers or unity of the believers, and the Bible teaches of the oneness of the believers, that the believers would be one just as the Father and the Son are one.  Jesus spoke about the oneness of the believers not about the ecumenism of the believer.


Ecumenism and oikumene is the world and the spirit of the world is under the leadership of Satan, and Satan tries to mislead God's people to think that ecumenism is what Jesus spoke of in John 17.  



The Ecumenical Connections of the Pope



here in Finland where I live many churches and denominations practise ecumenism with the catholic church and the Pope, for instance these churches and denominations: the Lutheran church, the Orthodox church, the Finnish Free church, the Pentecostal church, the Finnish Baptist community, the Finnish Adventist church, the Salvation army, the Finnish Swedish Methodist church, the Finnish Swedish Adventist church, the Finnish Swedish Pentecostal church, and the Anglican church in Finland.


Pope John Paul II also practised ecumenism with almost all religions.  The following is a short review of the connections of the Pope.




 Pope practises ecumenism with Muslims




In the Catholic Church the word kiss has many meanings:  Holy kiss, Kiss of peace, Kiss of love, Kiss of friendship.  



The Pope kissed the Koran in the year 1999. This kiss of the Pope is an indication of his huge respect towards the Koran, and an indication of his huge respect towards the religion of Islam.  The Pope practises ecumenism with the representatives of Islam. The Pope speaks openly that the Catholic Church respects the religion of Islam.


The Bible says that we must love our neighbour, but we cannot accept the service of idols, which the religion of Islam represents.  The Pope accepts the faith of Muslims and has prayed together with the representatives of Islam. The Religion of Islam represents the serving of idols and the disciples of Jesus Christ cannot practise unity of faith with the representatives of satanic religions.  The purpose of ecumenism is to forge unity with the religion of Islam.




The Pope and Buddhism



Pope Eugene IV said “Buddhism is the religion of damnation ".  Pope John Paul II however, said: "Buddhism is the religion of salvation.”  The Catholic Church teaches that: "The Pope is infallible, when he as the highest shepherd and teacher of the church gives a decision which concerns the whole church".   One or the other Pope has made a mistake and the doctrine of Catholic Church on the infallibility of the Pope is broken.



In the picture Pope John Paul II in year 1984 met the representatives of the Buddhist religion.  The Pope's statement, that Buddhism is the religion of salvation is false, because Buddhism is serving idols.  The Pope has also ecumenical relationships with Buddhism.


The Vatican teaches today that all religions are equal, but God has set only one church in which all can be saved which is the Roman Catholic Church.  The Vatican's statements are very conflicting, because sometimes it gives statements like Buddhism is the religion of salvation, but says at the same time that salvation is only in the Catholic Church.


This is the Pope's ecumenical target to accept other religions and churches, but to raise the Catholic Church above all other churches and religions.



Pope takes in his forehead the pagan idol mark




In the picture a Shiva priestess put the pagan idol mark in the forehead of the Pope (sign of the tilak).  In this way this Pope received the anointment of the Shiva religion.


The Shiva religion is one branch of the Hindu religion.  Hinduism and Shiva religion serve idols.  Pope practises ecumenism in this way.



Ecumenical deceit of Pope



Ecumenicalism is so deceitful, which is a way of Satan to mislead and deceive believers and unbelievers so that people would believe that ecumenicalism is the work of God, where He connects all people to be one.  The disciple of Jesus Christ does not have any part of this ecumenical work with the Pope and the Catholic Church.  Disciples of Jesus Christ have to practise oneness with those who has born in the Spirit of God and not with the idol worshippers.


Pope writes in his encyclical Ut Unum Sint 1995 as follows:  I have translated this from the Finnish language.



- The ecumenical responsibility of the Catholic Church and as all students of Christ’s responsibility is to gather together all people to unity and this is based on the plan of God.  In that the “church is not reality, which is closed to itself, but is continually open to mission and to ecumenicalism, which are in motion.  It has been sent to the world to announce the secret of unity, which is its essence, to prove it, to bring it in the present moment and to spread it - - to connect in Christ all and all things, and to be for all the  "undivided unity of the sacrament'"


- God wants that all mankind, which is in deep division, would form a united body.  For that reason He sent his Son, so that His Son would give to us his Spirit of love through His death and resurrection.  On the eve before Jesus died on the cross, Jesus himself prayed on behalf of his students and all who believed him, that they would be as one living community. Because of this, people who are joined in baptism to the body of Christ are in addition to the responsibility before God, the responsibility to obey his plan; in the body of Christ reconciliation and unity come into perfect truth.  How can we continue to be divided when we are "immersed" through baptism in the death of the Lord, just that event where God has in his Son brought to the ground all walls, which have divided us?  "This division is apparently in conflict with the will of Christ; it is an offence and damages the holy matter of preaching of the gospel to all creatures…


- " The Lord of eternities, who wisely and patiently carries out his merciful plan towards us sinful people, has recently started to shed the Spirit of contrition and still a more powerful yearning for unity among divided Christians. This grace has made a deep effect on many people everywhere, and also to those brothers who are in the division from the effect of the mercy of the Holy Spirit movement, which is still an expanding movement, which purpose is to achieve the unity of all Christians. This unity movement, which is called the ecumenical movement, is made up of people who pray to a triune God and confess Jesus Christ as Lord and Redeemer, and they are not only individuals, but also as members of their communities, where they have heard the gospel.  Almost all do yearn, although in different ways, as one and visible church of God, which is really global and which has been sent all over the world, so that world would turn to the gospel and thus would be saved to the glory of God."


The Pope advocates ecumenicalism in a very active way, but the Pope advocates ecumenicalism from the catholic perspective.  The Pope writes in his encyclical five passages, in which all must accept who support the ecumenical work, so that they can achieve unity.


Speech of Pope as italic:




The documents of the many International Mixed Commissions of dialogue have expressed this commitment to seek unity. On the basis of a certain fundamental doctrinal unity, these texts discuss Baptism, Eucharist, ministry and authority.


From this basic but partial unity it is now necessary to advance towards the visible unity which is required and sufficient and which is manifested in a real and concrete way, so that the Churches may truly become a sign of that full communion in the one, holy, catholic and apostolic Church which will be expressed in the common celebration of the Eucharist.


This journey towards the necessary and sufficient visible unity, in the communion of the one Church willed by Christ, continues to require patient and courageous efforts. In this process, one must not impose any burden beyond that which is strictly necessary (cf. Acts 15:28).


It is already possible to identify the areas in need of fuller study before a true consensus of faith can be achieved:


1) The relationship between Sacred Scripture, as the highest authority in matters of faith, and Sacred Tradition, as indispensable to the interpretation of the Word of God;


2) the Eucharist, as the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ, an offering of praise to the Father, the sacrificial memorial and Real Presence of Christ and the sanctifying outpouring of the Holy Spirit;


3) Ordination, as a Sacrament, to the threefold ministry of the episcopate, presbytery and diaconate;


4) the Magisterium of the Church, entrusted to the Pope and the Bishops in communion with him, understood as a responsibility and an authority exercised in the name of Christ for teaching and safeguarding the faith;


5) the Virgin Mary, as Mother of God and Icon of the Church, the spiritual Mother who intercedes for Christ's disciples and for all humanity.


What happens if we accept those 5 passages?


1) The relationship between Sacred Scripture, as the highest authority in matters of faith, and Sacred Tradition, as indispensable to the interpretation of the Word of God;  


When you believe this point, then you have to believe the unbiblical gospel of the Catholic Church and traditional knowledge and all traditions of the Catholic Church.


 2) the Eucharist, as the Sacrament of the Body and Blood of Christ, an offering of praise to the Father, the sacrificial memorial and Real Presence of Christ and the sanctifying outpouring of the Holy Spirit;


When you believe this point, then the atoning work of Jesus Christ is null and void. The Catholic Church teaches that in the offering of the mass Christ will be sacrificed again and each time in the bloodless way.  The Catholic Church teaches that the offering of the mass is the most powerful atonement offering.  The Bible tells us that the atonement of Jesus Christ is the most powerful atonement and by one offering He hath perfected for ever them that are sanctified Hebrews 10:14.  There are no two offerings in the new covenant and the offering of Jesus Christ cannot be duplicated.


3) Ordination, as a Sacrament, to the threefold ministry of the episcopate, presbyterate and diaconate;


When you believe this point, then you have to admit all teachings and doctrines of Catholic Church concerning bishops and priests as being biblical, although they are not.


 4) the Magisterium of the Church, entrusted to the Pope and the Bishops in communion with him, understood as a responsibility and an authority exercised in the name of Christ for teaching and safeguarding the faith;


When you believe this point, then you have to believe the status of the Pope, and what the Catholic Church teaches about the Pope, which is completely unbiblical.  And when you believe this point, that from the Pope comes spiritual authority, you must submit to all teachings of the Pope.


 5) the Virgin Mary, as Mother of God and Icon of the Church, the spiritual Mother who intercedes for Christ's disciples and for all humanity.


 When you believe this point, then you have to believe the teachings of the Catholic Church about Mary, which is completely unbiblical.  This point brings us to the worship of Mary. The Catechism of the Catholic Church teaches about Mary in this way:


964 Mary's role in the Church is inseparable from her union with Christ and flows directly from it. "This union of the mother with the Son in the work of salvation is made manifest from the time of Christ's virginal conception up to his death";502 it is made manifest above all at the hour of his Passion:


966 "Finally the Immaculate Virgin, preserved free from all stain of original sin, when the course of her earthly life was finished, was taken up body and soul into heavenly glory, and exalted by the Lord as Queen over all things, so that she might be the more fully conformed to her Son, the Lord of lords and conqueror of sin and death."506 The Assumption of the Blessed Virgin is a singular participation in her Son's Resurrection and an anticipation of the resurrection of other Christians:


 967 By her complete adherence to the Father's will, to his Son's redemptive work, and to every prompting of the Holy Spirit, the Virgin Mary is the Church's model of faith and charity. Thus she is a "pre-eminent and . . . wholly unique member of the Church"; indeed, she is the "exemplary realization" (typus) 508 of the Church.


968 Her role in relation to the Church and to all humanity goes still further. "In a wholly singular way she cooperated by her obedience, faith, hope, and burning charity in the Saviour’s work of restoring supernatural life to souls. For this reason she is a mother to us in the order of grace."509


969 "This motherhood of Mary in the order of grace continues uninterruptedly from the consent which she loyally gave at the Annunciation and which she sustained without wavering beneath the cross, until the eternal fulfilment of all the elect. Taken up to heaven she did not lay aside this saving office but by her manifold intercession continues to bring us the gifts of eternal salvation.... Therefore the Blessed Virgin is invoked in the Church under the titles of Advocate, Helper, Benefactress, and Mediatrix."510


The teaching of the Catholic Church regarding Mary is unbiblical, and also in this teaching about Mary we see that the RCC is not a congregation of God, but the great harlot of the book of revelation, Rev 17.


The Pope requires these 5 points of all of them who are working within the ecumenical movement.  The Pope and the Catholic Church make active work, so that those above-mentioned five points would become realities and other religions and churches and denomination would accept those 5 points.   You who are in this ecumenical work would also be serving the idols. You must repent and reject all ecumenical work of the Pope and come out from the ecumenical work and start to build oneness of the believers in the way how the Bible teaches. 





Living example from the deceit of ecumenical work



I now share with you a true example regarding this matter, and the deceit of ecumenical work. Many years ago I was working in one denomination in Finland and my responsibility was youth work in that congregation.


I contributed one article to this denomination weekly magazine for publishing.  The Editor in chief of the magazine accepted my article to be published on one condition, that the sentences in bold be removed:


I add here my article in italics and the removed passages of editor in chief in bold:


 Renewal of the teaching of the word of God is fulfilled:


 How and in which direction must we renew? The Bible answers us: “and be not conformed to this world: but be ye transformed by the renewing of your mind, that ye may prove what is that good, and acceptable, and perfect, will of God.” The Word of God warns us that we should not build our faith and congregation according to the spirit of this world and according to the flow of this world.  The Bible urges us to examine the word of God for His will and to build our faith on the foundation of Jesus Christ and word of God.  We cannot build our faith according to our own opinions or to look for examples from the world for building the faith and the congregation.  The Hebrew word Torah means primarily teaching and advice and also law.  We have to build up our belief and congregation according to the teaching of the word of God. The Word of God says to us that the Lord has set His regulation, so that those would be obeyed accurately, Jesus Christ said; “Think not that I am come to destroy the law, or the prophets: I am not come to destroy, but to fulfil.”  We cannot cancel the word of God, the Apostle Paul writes: “Do we then make void the law through faith? God forbid: yea, we establish the law.” Our task is to confirm the teaching of the word of God and to stretch out according to the word of God.


The plan of God in Jesus Christ is that His character and holiness of His will appears in the witnesses of Jesus Christ.  The law exposes to people their sin, and the atonement of Jesus Christ alone releases people from the power of sin and Satan. When a man repents of his sins by admitting them and receives forgiveness and the work of atonement of Jesus Christ, he becomes a child of God, and the Holy Spirit seals him as a witness of Jesus Christ. In this way the Holy Spirit resides in our heart by way of the teaching of the Word to renew us so that the character of God, His will, holiness and love appear through the witnesses of Jesus Christ.   By this all shall know that you are the disciples of Jesus Christ, if you have love among one another and for this is the love of God that we keep His commandments; and His commandments are not heavy.  Are we one today in Christianity such as the will of God requires?


If we really want to renew ourselves, real renewal leads us to the original and biblical congregation.  Now there is a boom of new and different congregations. This adds more division to the current division among the congregations. The Word of God knows only one body of Christ. The will of God is that Jesus Christ has one flock of sheep, which graze in the same pasture and also eat the same grass.  When we examine the Bible and the ecumenical movement we will notice that it is not from God.  Another gospel, another spirit built the harlot church in the spirit of ecumenism around the Catholic Church.  Another gospel tries to extend its influence to all Christian churches, denominations and congregations.



Today there is much emphasis on emotional experiences.  People, who run after emotions, often do not have the energy to listen to the word of truth, which is to be the foundation of our gatherings.  If in the meetings do not involve anything sensational, these meetings do not interest them. God has created feelings and these are important, but faith is based on the word of God.  This renewal according to the word of God will open us all to an emotional experience, which is in the right relationship to the word of God.  At this point of time we need renewal for those who have rooted themselves to the truth, and the Holy Spirit leads us to the truth. The Holy Spirit glorifies Jesus Christ. The Kingdom of God is righteousness and peace and joy in the Holy Spirit.



Are we fearful to announce that without faith in Jesus Christ people are on the journey to damnation?  Do not be frightened to say so, because you are not condemning, but you are proclaiming the truth.  Resistance and criticism always follow proclaiming the truth.  Witnesses of Jesus Christ do not wait for the truth to become popular among unbelievers. The experience of the love of God and His holiness brings encouragement to the witnesses of Jesus Christ.  Today God calls His servants to blow the trumpet.  God sets the witnesses of Jesus Christ as watchmen to His word.  When you hear words from the mouth of the Lord, announce them in love to people.  Tell people that they have sinned against God, tell people of the gift of salvation, Jesus Christ, and God’s plan for salvation.  Witnesses of Jesus Christ love people in the love of God.  With these thoughts I have to look in the mirror and to repent by shouting, Jesus I believe! Help my unbelief!



Petri Paavola.



The reason for removing the sentence was that this denomination is within the ecumenical movement (truly then yet as observer member, but nowadays as member) and the workers of that denomination could not give such kind of statements about the Catholic Church and ecumenicalism.


I made my decision and I said that the whole writing cannot be published, because those removed sentences are a very important part to this writing.


But this denomination chairman of the board admitted to me, that the doctrine of the Catholic Church for example: about the offering of the mass and doctrine of Mary are doctrines of evil spirits.  However, it does not dare admit this publicly, though it is spoken in small circles, but not openly in public.


Now has happened, such as I warned this chairman, that when the truth is concealed, new generations will accept ecumenicalism and doctrine of the Catholic Church as biblical and goes at full speed to ecumenicalism and not see this matter correctly, but accept Catholic Church’s false doctrine as biblical truth.


And this deception is now widespread, in that nowadays in Finland the Free Church and Pentecostal church and some Baptists have an increased number of believers who hold the doctrine of Catholic Church as biblical.



Apostasy of the end time



1 Tim 4:1-3Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;   Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron;   Forbidding to marry, and commanding to abstain from meats, which God hath created to be received with thanksgiving of them which believe and know the truth.



Apostle Paul wrote that during the end many believers will give up the faith and start to follow the teachings of the evil spirits.  There is a hint in this verse to us about this teaching of the evil spirits.  The hint is that they forbid marrying. The Catholic Church forbids its priests from marrying.  This means that during the end many believers will give up their living faith and believe the false gospel of the Catholic Church.  By way of ecumenicalism, this verse comes true and is already coming true and partly has come true.



Catholic Church teaches for instance.



- Mary was everlasting virgin.   Mary had been preserved as free from the stains of original sin, and at the end of her earthly life, was lifted up to the heavenly brightness body and soul and made queen of all entity, so that she was completely like her Son



- In the offering of the mass Jesus is sacrificed once again each time when the mass is carried out. Offering of the mass is also the most powerful offering of the Catholic Church.



- Pope is infallible in the matters of the faith and the Vicar of Christ on earth.



- Christians should believe all that which God has taught and the Catholic Church sets to be believable, whether it is written in the holy Bible or not.



- Pope Leo XIII: As the truth can be confirmed, that from the will of God about that vast treasury of all grace, which God has reserved, does not come to us in any other but by Mary… how large is the wisdom and grace which has been informed, in this plan …. Mary is our excellent mediator; she is powerful Mother of the almighty God.



- Baptism cleanses us from original sin and from all other sins; it cancels all temporal and eternal punishments; gives dedicated grace and help of grace to preserve the grace; divine virtues; press to our soul an indelible mark, makes us Christ like and the members of his holy church, children of God and heirs of heaven.




- Holy mass offering is the loftiest offering, because it is;


1. the most valuable praise offering


2. the most pleasing peace offering


3. the most effective prayer offering


4. the most powerful sin offering




Prayer before statue of Virgin Mary


Holy Woman who is in labour, Virgin Mary. Your son Jesus Christ gave you to be our Mother and our defender. To your maternal love we ensure, we ask you to pray on our behalf, that for the sake of your Sons Valuable Blood we would get forgiveness for our sins, salvation to our souls and all which we will need for the fulfilling of the will of God. Ask for to us from your dearest Son that special help, which at the moment especially we will need...... You, who are Good Advisor and Mother of Conciliation, help us to understand better, what is to us best and take us there where your Son is, so that together with you we would praise God with your words: " For the Mighty One did great things to me." Amen.





The Gospel of the Catholic Church is the doctrine of evil spirits and ecumenicalism is the plan of darkness that each believer must withdraw from.  I wrote this as a warning and to expose the acts of darkness and for the glory of the gospel of Jesus Christ..



Gal 1:1-10


Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead ;)  And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:   Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,   Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:   To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.   I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:   Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.   But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed.   As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.   For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? For if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ




Petri Paavola from Finland
