FYI for those of our UK friends who may not be
on Rev. Ratcliff's e-mail list. It is so good to see the banner of truth
being raised in your nation. You may be assured that we in the USA will be
praying fervently for our UK brethren who have "understanding of
the times, to know what Israel ought to do."

Subject: Westminster 2010 - An Ecumenical Deception
I was looking through
the signatories of Westminster 2010 http://www.westminster2010.org.uk/
and believe I saw you on the list. If it is not you and just someone with
the same name then please ignore this and accept my apologies for
troubling you. I am also sending this to a few other people who I am
almost 100% sure have not signed, but who may want to forward this to
You may not have realised but
this is a thoroughly ecumenical document as its key signatories include a
Roman Catholic Cardinal. Therefore signing the document implies that you
believe that the false Roman Catholic religion is actually Christian.
I believe the whole thing to
be a foolish exercise in politics at the expense of the Gospel. It is
highly dangerous and misleading. The Roman Catholic Church works through
the pro-life movement to undermine evangelicals and through its social
teaching to undermine nations.
I hope you will realise the
seriousness of this false ecumenism disguised as Christian action. I am
told by a spokesman for Westminster 2010 that your name can easily be
removed if you email them to request this at email@example.com
and request that your name is removed. I am sorry that organisations such
as CCFON are leading Christians astray in this manner.
Please forward this email to
any people that you think may have inadvertently signed Westminster 2010.
If you are still determined
to stay on the list of signatories for pragmatic political reasons, then
consider this: What good can a few thousand signatures do in godless
Britain? Consider how much harm you may cause to Roman Catholics who
are considering the Gospel when they see that you who call
yourself evangelicals are calling a Cardinal Wolf a
Finally, be of good cheer,
just as David beat Goliath "against all the odds", so much more
has the despised and crucified Christ Jesus overcome the world. While
we are rightly vexed like righteous Lot, and seek to preach to men of all
sorts and conditions, let us rely solely upon the Lord for the salvation
of all the elect and His glorious return.
entirely by God's grace,
Rev Peter Ratcliff
ps. If you are not already
a subscriber I can email you a pdf sample of a recent English
Churchman which addresses the Christian Institute's determination to host
Wayne Grudem who is a key signatory of the Manhattan Declaration which is
a similarly despicable ecumenical statement that was issued
recently in the USA.
