2Co 6:15 What accord has Christ with Belial? Or what portion does a believer share with an unbeliever?
2Co 6:16 What agreement has the temple of God with idols? For we are the temple of the living God; as God said, "I will make my dwelling among them and walk among them, and I will be their God, and they shall be my people.
2Co 6:17 Therefore go out from their midst, and be separate from them, says the Lord, and touch no unclean thing; then I will welcome you,
2Co 6:18 and I will be a father to you, and you shall be sons and daughters to me, says the Lord Almighty."

Here's more of their inter-religions push, this time with Judaism:
First Things invites you to attenda lecture by Professor Michael Wyschogrod:
A King in Israel: A Theological Approach to Israel’s Constitutional
June 3, 2010 at 6:30 p.m.35 East 21st Street, 6th Floor
Introduction by Rabbi Meir Y. Soloveichik,Associate Rabbi of Congregation Kehilath Jeshurun
A wine and cheese reception will follow the lecture.
Prof. Wyschogrod will lecture on Jewish covenantal theology and its application to the present challenges of the Jewish people and the State of Israel. First Things is honored to present this important thinker to our readers.
Jews deny the God of Scripture for they deny Jesus Christ. They deny the sole way of salvation which is only through Jesus Christ the risen Lord. They hold to works and lineage to save them but Jesus rejects that.
1Jo 2:23 No one who denies the Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also. 22 Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son.
Roman Catholic stuff : "Hot Rod Catholicism" ; Catholic schools,: Conferences of RCC with Anglicans
For many, they see the RCC as a valid church and therefore will hold hands with it on some level. Only now these folks are becoming inter-faith, because I guess in their mind, truth is in everything, they just need to pick it out.
Scripture, however, calls for separating from the World and false religions. And no, I didn't say"isolation", I said separation. =)
God is not honored when those who claim His name refuse to do away with such things as a false demon institution like the RCC or Judaism. Both are lost and both need the Gospel. But then, many Reformers also see that the Doctrine of Justification is optional, hence they can sign the Manhattan Declaration or write for a Roman Catholic blog or die on the hill for a theologian who denied Justification by faith alone. The excuses are endless. Its all just man-centeredness, and certainly not about Christ alone or HIS glory alone nor by Faith alone --all of which they like to claim.
1Jo 2:21 I write to you, not because you do not know the truth, but because you know it, and because NO LIE IS OF THE TRUTH. [caps for emphasis]
Is. 8 20 To the law and to the testimony! If they do not speak according to this word, they have no light of dawn.
Gal 1:9 As we have said before, so now I say again: If anyone is preaching to you a gospel contrary to the one you received, let him be accursed. 10 For am I now seeking the approval of man, or of God? Or am I trying to please man? If I were still trying to please man, I would not be a servant of Christ.
2Jo 1:9 Everyone who goes on ahead and does not abide in the teaching of Christ, does not have God. Whoever abides in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him into your house or give him any greeting, 11 for whoever greets him takes part in his wicked works.
Tit 1:9 He must hold firm to the trustworthy word as taught, so that he may be able to give instruction in sound doctrine and also to rebuke those who contradict it.
