From Christianity Today:
“The gaping divide between evangelicals and Catholics is ecclesiology and authority, not justification and salvation, as important as that debate remains,” George said. “There is enough commonality that evangelicals and Catholics with a living faith can recognize one another as brothers and sisters in Jesus Christ with a common Lord and common grace that brought them together. The hard issues are questions related to the church, such as the Petrine office [the papacy] and the Eucharist. Those discussions will occupy us for the next 100 years.”
Bulletin flash: “the Eucharist” is about as central as you can get to salvation on either side of the divide. Even a good Catholic should shake their head in disbelief at such a statement. The siren call of compromise seems to be sounding ever louder in this day of apostasy.
