A Tale of Two Ecumenisms

Carl Trueman asks an interesting question about Evangelical Ecumenism:

Why do evangelicals see agreement on soteriology, and not on the doctrine of God, as the necessary precondition for ecumenism? Many evangelicals reject dialogue with Roman Catholics because of the issues of authority and soteriology. Yet we should remember that the foundational doctrine of God may be shared between some confessional Protestant evangelicals and traditional Roman Catholics while being a point of clear disagreement between evangelicals who seem to have no difficulty working together.

The answer for Evangelicalism is to stand for truth on all essential doctrines. The Trinitarian doctrines are just as essential to the faith as the doctrines of justification. Neither should be compromised.
