The song begins: “There comes a time when we heed a certain call, when the world must come together as one.”
The song ‘We are the World’ was originally written by Michael Jackson and Lionel Richie for the USA for Africa Charity Benefit in 1985. Now it is being used by the ecumenical movement to sing to Pope Francis as he seeks to unite Protestants, Catholics, Muslims, Orthodox and Jews into one, big, equal, multi-faith body.
On May 6, 2019 Pope Francis met with different representatives of various faiths in Sofia, Bulgaria and gave the call to the religious world to come together as one. During the ecumenical celebration Pope Francis addressed the audience:
“Peace requires and demands that we adopt dialogue as our path, mutual understanding as our code of conduct and reciprocal understanding as our method and standard.” In this way, he said, “we can focus on what unites us, show mutual respect for our differences and encourage one another to look to a future of opportunity and dignity, especially for future generations.” 
The churches are accepting the propaganda that tells us that it doesn’t matter what you believe, just as long as we are united. So many religious leaders are happy to go along with this. The problem is that in order for us to come together with Catholics, Orthodox, Muslims, Jews and other faiths, this would require that we make massive concessions with Biblical truth.
This is not Biblical unity; it’s an unbiblical appeasement towards man and a massive selling-out of the true faith of God. It’s nothing more that the great apostasy predicted in 2 Thessalonians Chapter 2.
- “Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first, and that man of sin be revealed, the son of perdition.” 2 Thessalonians 2:3.
- “Who opposeth and exalteth himself above all that is called God, or that is worshipped; so that he as God sitteth in the temple of God, shewing himself that he is God.” 2 Thessalonians 2:4.
- “Even him, whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders.” 2 Thessalonians 2:9.
- “And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.” 2 Thessalonians 2:10.
- “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie.” 2 Thessalonians 2:11.
- “That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.” 2 Thessalonians 2:12.
Truth is important because God’s word says that in the last day the churches will come together, but not on truth. We cannot pretend that every belief system is the same or has the same benefit and outcome. We need believers who will stand up for our rich Protestant heritage that places a high value on the word of God. If not, we might as well start closing down our churches because they are fast becoming museum pieces instead of consecrated buildings for proclaiming the gospel of Christ.
