Fostering apostasy this summer at the European Missionary Fellowship

HuddleLion attack

'Flee out of the midst of Babylon, and deliver every man his soul: be not cut off in her iniquity; for this is the time of the LORD’S vengeance; he will render unto her a recompence.' (
Jer 51:6)


José De Segovia is Pastor of a Reformed Church in Madrid, professor of the Protestant Theological College (UEBE) and the International Theological College in Castelldefels (Barcelona).
He is a missionary currently active with EMF has been selected to host EMF's summer 'European Huddle' this year.

Mr De Segovia has been an active supporter and participant in ecumenism with Rome.


From 26 July – 1 August 2009, in São Paolo, Brazil, he was a prominent delegate at the Consultation between the World Evangelical
Alliance and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity
(p.39 of pdf , p.78 of document).
By his own terms a consultation, is a step forward from an informal discussion with the Roman hierarchy, in which 'we know what we want and they tell us what they want.'

One wonders what an EMF missionary wants from full throated ecumenism with Rome?

In the second round of the third series of 'consultations' between the World Evangelical Alliance and the Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity,
held in Rome, from 12-17 September 2011. De Segovia was again a prominent contributor. 

The second series in 1993-2002 was entitled, 'Church, Evangelization and the Bonds of Koinonia' [fellowship].
Koinonia with Roman idolatry      or rather perhaps    Two tigers meet

The 2011 report noted:
'This year’s consultation was held in a prayerful atmosphere of growing trust and fellowship. Cardinal Kurt Koch and Bishop Brian Farrell, the President and Secretary of the PCPCU, welcomed the members of both teams and, after an update on the state of the Consultation, reflected on the aspiration to continue to work in a spirit of Christian solidarity.'
Ministerial fraternity of wolves
This clearly is an exercise in seeking mutual ministerial recognition with Roman heresy.

We have had concerns about EMF before, both over a fleshly act of Baal worship
and over a delayed, but ultimately forthright, response to very serious ecumenism in Poland.

Far from distancing itself, EMF has chosen to promote this ecumenical pioneer.
However De Segovia's activities have not been in a corner, and he has received, under its former director,
and continues to receive strong public and primary endorsement by EMF.

De Segovia continues to engage in high level consultations in [neo-]'Evangelical'-Roman dialogue that will conclude in September 2014.
It is clear he has been closely involved from the inception of these series of talks.

This raises immediate concerns:
  • Why is a determined and dangerous ecumenist like this being entrusted with young students and workers?
  • What is the current director fostering apostasy for?
  • Are EMF's supporters concerned about this very serious sign of defection?
  • It is another warning about the extent and depth of evangelical apostasy in Europe: in Poland, Eastern Europe and in the UK

          ”Wherefore I take you to record this day, that I am pure from the blood of all men. For I have not shunned to declare unto you all the counsel of God. Take heed therefore unto yourselves, and to all the flock, over the which the Holy Ghost hath made you overseers, to feed the church of God, which he hath purchased with his own blood. For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. Also of your own selves shall men arise, speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears. And now, brethren, I commend you to God, and to the word of his grace, which is able to build you up, and to give you an inheritance among all them which are sanctified.”
(Act 20.26-32)

More helpful reading on the real dangers of ecumenism here.
I am again highly indebted to brother Peter Nicholson for bringing these matters to my attention, and much else beside.
