  ICCC - International Council of Christian Churches
It was here that the American leaders of the American Council of Christian Churches meeting in Detroit called for a parallel meeting to the ecumenicals to be held just ahead in Amsterdam in the Netherlands in 1948.
The ultimate goal of the WCC was a world church, and with the ICCC, the claim of all would be a personal, visible return of Jesus Christ.
The ICCC organised in carious sections of the world and set up Councils of Christian Churches, but in all their meetings the issues were modernism, unbelief, ecumenism, veers the in-errancy and full truthfulness of the Bible.

They were a movement of theologically conservative Christians that believed in the importance of the essentials of the Christian faith, and who were determined to take a militant stand against modernism within and without the church.

 OUTCOME-BASED RELIGION !
Church growth has become the order of the day, and programs and schemes must be put in place to meet the established goals for growth.
Under these auspices, the church has evolved from a fortress where those of like faith were convicted of sin, reproved, nurtured, edified, instructed, and sent out into the world to reach the lost-- to an open stage for all comers to "experience God".
The church also must be staffed with "Christian Counselors" schooled in "Christian Psychology" to meet the needs of people who have become frustrated in searching for answers to today's "complex problems" within the pages of that ancient, simplistic document we call the Word of God.

Many of the churches of continental Europe are nearly empty and powerless spiritually, while many of the churches in America are facing the same problem, much of which is due to sex scandals and the world wide spread of human secularism and political correctness along with materialism.
It is this fact of the trend toward the centralization of authority and so-called “responsible” church government that has led to the changing attitude of Rome toward the Council and in the new cordial spirit between the two.
Ecumenical leaders, who were in the middle of negotiations to enlist several more Eastern Orthodox churches in the Council’s membership, were finally convinced that it would be good for their strategy to agree to a compromise change in the Basis.

 International Council of Christian Churches of North America: Home Page
Concerned Christians, dedicated pastors and lay people who live within driving distance or who can come by plane, need to be in the meetings for their own benefit and to help in the united effort to put the brakes on the on-church, political and economic system that is rapidly being thrust upon us.
Also, the council is not some kind of a super denomination, exercising control from the top down, but a means whereby the smallest congregation or an individual can join in a united effort against the apostasy of the day, and continue a testimony of biblical separation.
The council believes that it is the duty of all true believers in the Lord Jesus Christ to make a clear testimony to their faith, and especially so in these last days when preachers, churches and denominations are being infiltrated and destroyed by modernism, communism, humanism, materialism and licentious practices.

 Sex abuse spans spectrum of churches | csmonitor.com
Despite headlines focusing on the priest pedophile problem in the Roman Catholic Church, most American churches being hit with child sexual-abuse allegations are Protestant, and most of the alleged abusers are not clergy or staff, but church volunteers.
But he says that his churches are more highly educated on child abuse prevention procedures than most, which may account for a lower rate of reported abuse than the CMR surveys.
The problem, Cobble says, is that churches are the perfect environment for sexual predators, because they have large numbers of children's' programs, a shortage of workers to lead them, and a culture of trust that is the essence of the organization.

 Christian Churches Are Opening The Door to Antichrist with Outcome Based Religion
The Church of Rome is just one of many examples of organizations which bear the name "church" while exhibiting little or no resemblance to the biblical definition of the term.
Since the unity of the original church was the 'influence' of the Savior, in Schleiermacher's view, 'the essence of the church is fellowship'." (2) (At this juncture, prudence would dictate a developing principle in the study of "apostasy".
The spirit of early ecumenism was illustrated with the founding of the Federal Council of Churches on December 2, 1908.
