What Kind of Ecumenism?

Thanks to Heidleblog and Against Heresies we get a glimpse into the wisdom of Martin Lloyd-Jones on the kind of ecumenism in which he is willing to engage.

He says,
"What is the Christian church? That is the question. You cannot discuss church unity unless you are clear in your mind as to what the church is. Now here is the great divide. The ecumenical people put fellowship before doctrine. We are evangelicals; we put doctrine before fellowship."

Click  Against Heresies  for his very insightful message.

Pastor, wouldn't you say also that according to 1 John 1, we can't have true fellowship without good doctrine?
