Through baptism Lutherans and Roman Catholics are bound to each other as members of the one body of Christ.
This is written in an ecumenical document. “Lutheran-Roman Catholic Commission Urges Celebration of Fruits of Dialogue in 2017”
As they approach the 500th Anniversary of the Protestant Reformation in 2017, Lutheran and Roman Catholic representatives affirmed that through baptism Lutherans and Roman Catholics are bound to each other as members of the one body of Christ.
The fourth meeting of the Lutheran-Roman Catholic Commission on Unity took place from 12–19 July in Paderborn, Germany. The commission gathers under the auspices of the Lutheran World Federation (LWF) and the Vatican’s Pontifical Council for Promoting Christian Unity (PCPCU).
The 500th Anniversary of the Reformation in 2017 will also mark 50 years of dialogue between the two churches, which the commission noted offers cause for celebration.
“Catholics and Lutherans struggle in the face of their division to achieve the full catholicity of the church,” the commission said in a 19 July communiqué.
“On the one side there is joy about the communion they already share and have been able to make more explicit during the 50 years of official ecumenical dialogue. On the other side there is the pain about what is still dividing. The division of Christians stands in the opposition to the will of God.”
However, the commission added that by “harvesting the fruits of the ecumenical dialogue,” Lutherans and Roman Catholics can celebrate the communion that has already been achieved, which the commission said is greater than what divides them.
At the Paderborn meeting, hosted by the PCPCU, the commission finalized the document, “From Conflict to Communion: Lutheran-Catholic Common Commemoration of the Reformation in 2017.” Plans are underway for the publication and release of the document.

There is a lot of interesting stuff in this LWF document. You can download the PDF-document file Luth-Cath-Communiqué-July-2012
2017 will be a jubilee year since 1967, when the city of Jerusalem was finally liberated Islamic occupation. In 1948, the colonial occupier’s from the United Kingdom were emoved.
The Pope teach that a child is saved in the ritual of infant baptism. So if Lutherans accept this to be true, they are separated Catholics who will in large numbers return home to Rome. By the counterfeit spirit they have received by their false teachers.
That the LWF writes that “division of Christians stand in opposition to the will of God” is worth noticing. Because it deletes the work of the Holy Spirit. No need to identify false teachers of false prophets. The Word of Jesus, and all the warnings in the Bible, is made null and void.
The union of the LWC and the Vatican is truly a part of the build up of the One World Religion. They will together ” achieve the full “Catholicity of the Church”.
The truth is that this document is one of the strategic documents that pave the way for the last and final antichrist.
