\u2018Together 2016\u2019 Organizer Meets With \u2018Pope Francis\u2019 to Unite Christians, Catholics on National Mall
By Heather Clark on June 10, 
Hall Bergoglio Together-compressedWASHINGTON \u2014 An ecumenical event featuring Hillsong United, Lecrae, Michael W. Smith, Josh McDowell, Ravi Zacharias, Francis Chan and other renown evangelical and Catholic speakers and musicians that is set to take place in Washington, D.C. is raising concerns as it seeks to draw a million attendees to \u201Clink arms\u201D in unity, including with the Vatican.
\u201CTogether 2016\u201D is an event to be held on July 16 at the National Mall in Washington, and seeks to unite those of various backgrounds to \u201Cstand together for Jesus.\u201D Both Christians and Catholics alike will be featured at the prayer and worship event.
\u201CTogether 2016 is about laying aside what divides us to lift up Jesus who unites us,\u201D organizer Nick Hall of PULSE told Christian News Network. \u201CWe are coming together in historic unity to pray for a reset for our nation.\u201D
\u201CJesus said that His followers are family. We believe that it is time for a family gathering,\u201D he also said in an official statement. \u201CIt\u2019s not about what divides us, but about the one who unites us\u2014Jesus. The world sees division. We can change that.\u201D
This week, Hall announced that Jorge Bergoglio, also known as Pope Francis, will be delivering a video message to those in attendance.
\u201CWe are humbled and honored by his involvement and are eager to share his message with the crowd that gathers at Together 2016,\u201D he told the Christian Post. \u201CThat His Holiness would choose to speak into this historic day is a testament to the urgency and the need for followers of Jesus to unite in prayer for our nation and our world.\u201D
Hall traveled to Rome on Thursday to meet with the Roman Catholic leader and other Vatican officials ahead of the event.
Connect with Christian News
\u201CWe\u2019ve been praying for this and God has been answering our prayers,\u201D he said in an online video in speaking of Bergoglio\u2019s support of the gathering, explaining that he and a representative from the Vatican discussed how to unite Christians and Catholics.
Hall also noted that he and Bergoglio would be praying together on Friday.
\u201CThis is just what God\u2019s been doing,\u201D he asserted.
Supporters of the event include The Billy Graham Evangelistic Association, the Luis Palau Association, CRU (formerly Campus Crusade for Christ), Intervarsity Christian Fellowship, Premiere Productions, the National Day of Prayer, YWAM, the American Bible Society and other organizations.
Confirmed speakers include Francis Chan, Ravi Zacharias, Josh McDowell, Southern Baptist Convention President Ronnie Floyd and National Hispanic Christian Leadership Conference President Samuel Rodriquez. Music will be provided by Michael W. Smith, Hillsong United, Lecrae, Kari Jobe, Jeremy Camp, Lauren Daigle, Casting Crowns, Kirk Franklin, Andy Mineo and Matt Maher, among others.
\u201CI love the name Together,\u201D Joel Houston of Hillsong United said in a statement. \u201CThere\u2019s a power in unity and a blessing that comes when people put aside their differences and gather together for one purpose. Our prayer is for this to be a reset for us as a generation of the church\u2014in America and beyond.\u201D
Worship leader, Matt Maher, who identifies as a Roman Catholic, has outlined at other ecumenical events that he believes it is his calling to work toward to the unification of Christians and Catholics.
\u201CWe\u2019ve never seen a unified church before in the history of the church since the Reformation. We don\u2019t even know what it looks like,\u201D he said at OneThing 2015. \u201CI think what the work of unity starts with [is]: It starts with us praying together. It starts with us fellowshiping together. It starts with us having a common respect for each other, a love for each other.\u201D
However, not everyone believes that Christians should link arms with Roman Catholics and set aside major differences that go to the heart of the gospel.
\u201CNick Hall either does not know the exclusivity of the gospel of God or he does not know the Roman Catholic plan of salvation because they are diametrically opposed,\u201D Mike Gendron of Proclaiming the Gospel Ministries told Christian News Network. Gendron is a former Roman Catholic who now teaches evangelicals how to share the gospel with Catholics.
\u201CWe\u2019re divided on how one is born again: Rome says water baptism, the Bible says the work of the Spirit. We\u2019re divided on how one is justified: Rome says faith plus works, the Bible says faith. We\u2019re divided on how one is purified of sin: Rome says purgatory, the Bible says the blood of Jesus. We\u2019re divided on the essentials of the gospel: Rome has other mediators, the Bible says it\u2019s Christ alone,\u201D he explained.
Gendron said that Jesus himself came to divide with truth, and prayed that His Church would be sanctified with that truth.
\u201CIt was the Lord Jesus Christ who came to divide: He divides with His word and His gospel. He divides mother against daughter, father against son\u2014and we must remain sanctified and not united with any who are not born again,\u201D he explained. \u201CMore than ever, we must maintain the exclusivity of the gospel of Christ. What hope does an unbelieving world have unless we maintain the purity of the gospel?\u201D
Gendron also stated that he is concerned about the message that it will send when Christians see evangelical leaders involved with an event that validates Roman Catholicism, and therefore does not view those in the religion as a mission field.
\u201CThis is going to put the gospel off limits to many Roman Catholics who are there, so it will also confuse the evangelical Church,\u201D he said.
In addition to concerns about unification with the Vatican, there are also questions about Hall\u2019s inclusion of Andy Mineo at the event following his defense of profanity earlier this year on Twitter.
\u201CDo you guys really think if a person uses \u2018profanity\u2019 (words we\u2019ve given meaning) in their music they couldn\u2019t possibly be Christian? Why?\u201D Mineo asked, and later responded to a follower who said Christians shouldn\u2019t be using profanity, \u201CYour idea of Christianity is black and white. One day you\u2019ll understand there is grey and it\u2019s ok.\u201D
As previously reported, some have likewise expressed concern over Kirk Franklin\u2019s appearance on profane rapper Kanye West\u2019s new album.
\u201CWhen I was sitting in the studio with Kirk\u2014Kirk Franklin\u2014and we\u2019re just going through it, I said, \u2018This is a gospel album with a whole lot of cursing on it, but it\u2019s still a gospel album,\u2019\u201D West stated in a recent interview on Big Boy Radio. \u201CIt\u2019s the gospel according to Ye.\u201D
Hall did not respond to Christian News Network\u2019s question as to whether an artist\u2019s behavior is a factor when being vetted, or if there is a vetting process at all for speakers and musicians.
