Ecumenical theological pretext. Manhatten Declaration.

There has been a lot of buzz over this document, particularly because some Protestants with good repuations have signed it.
Personally, knowing who the men behind it are, I see it as the tiltle of this post.


What I find mildly amusing however, is that some of the men who would oppose my High Calvinism are not out shoving 1 Corinthians 15:1-8 down everyones throat as the standard definition of what the gospel is.
No! They are now shouting out Grace alone through faith alone in Christ alone by the Bible alone and all for the glory of Christ alone!

Funny that. As James White often say's. "Inconsistency is the hallmark of a failed argument!"

Something tells me that if we make the above passages in 1st Corinthians definitional of just what the Gospel is, then of course all kinds of "believers" can sign these ecumenical documents. Makes sense.

I just find it interesting that many reformed believers when arguing against those of us who defend Particular redemption, now use our more "narrow" definitions of the gospel rather than the more generic ideas they promulgate when arguing against Particular atonement.....Strange eh?
