Quotes to Consider:

Herman Hoeksema: "In our ecumenical age, it is almost like a voice crying in the wilderness when we insist that the church must still exercise its power of the keys. Under the slogan of a wrong interpretation and application of John 17:21, ‘that they may all be one,’ most churches have long discarded the truth of the gospel, abrogated their confessions, and strive to unite into one ecumenical church ... In the light of this ecumenical striving the subject of the keys of the kingdom of heaven has become antiquated. Yet, the true church, however small, may not follow this false ecumenical trend, but must insist on the exercise of the power of the keys" (The Triple Knowledge, vol. 2, p. 693).
