What is behind the present aim to bring all the groups in Christendom back to the "mother church"?

Looking at events in light of what will exist in the seven years of tribulation, we cannot help attaching significance to the way the "mother church" is accommodating herself to so many groups in Christendom. Her strange alliance with "evangelicals" opposing abortion is one way of finding common ground. Other twists of theological language serve the same end. The World Council of Churches also contributes to this.

The end result of all false worship is embodied in "Great Babylon, the mother of harlots . . ." (Rev 17:5). She will be the amalgamation of all non-biblical faiths.

We cannot, however, assume the role of prophets. To us, the path from what we see at present and what we see in the prophetic future is a straight line. We do not know if that is the case. The means by which it will all work out have not been revealed to us. We can identify trends that are moving in the direction of revealed prophecies, but we cannot say that those events are fulfilling those prophecies.
