Nuggets from Occult Invasion—An Ecumenical Gospel for the Next Millennium |

Dave Hunt

There is an almost wholesale acceptance by evangelicals of the growing ecumenical movement to evangelize the world by the year 2000. One of its leaders, Michael Green, has spoken at such prestigious gatherings as Billy Graham’s 1983 International Conference for Itinerant Evangelists in Amsterdam. There he told these evangelists from around the world (who were looking to the speakers Graham had chosen for advice), “Don’t talk about the new birth, talk about liberation…. Identify with and befriend secular society. Become one with them….” In his book The Futures of Christianity, Green suggests that Christians “can be taught…about devotion to God by Muslims or Hindus, about detachment from the passions by Buddhists, about the sacredness of nature by animists, and about goodness by atheists…”! That the lost must be “born again,” as Jesus said (John:3:3,7), is being exchanged for a humanistic gospel of self-righteousness.
