Cyberbretheren has lengthy post dealing with the joint declaration on justification and how it is a betrayal of Lutheran/Biblical doctrine. I read it and agree. I've posted it here, so it's handy. You may also comment. For me, today, it connects with the two previous posts I made today.
When Baptists, Roman Catholics, Pentecostals, etc. speak of a "whole" gospel, they are also getting away from justification by faith alone, no matter how they deny it. If one reads them, one can see right away that forgiveness of sins is no longer at the heart, but something else. And that something else varies from person to person and group to group. Unity is not gained this way.
