Catholic Church teaches that it is necessary to be tolerant to other religions,
that all religions are simply different ways to one God.
But is this that the Bible teaches?
this ye know, that no whoremonger, nor unclean person, nor covetous man, who is an
idolater, hath any inheritance in the kingdom of Christ and of God. Let no
man deceive you with vain words: for because of these things cometh the wrath of
God upon the children of disobedience. Be not ye therefore partakers with
them. For ye were sometimes darkness, but now are ye light in the Lord: walk
as children of light: And have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of
darkness, but rather reprove them» (Eph.5:5-11);
«If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed: For he that bidets him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds” (2 John 10-11);
others save with fear, pulling them out of the fire; hating even the garment
spotted by the flesh.» (Jude 23);
People who are intoxicated with the poisoned wine of the Prostitute's lie (Rev.18:23), looked at her as at Mother Church. But those who have become sober or had never tried her wine sees her as she is: the Prostitute.
Word of the God says to the true Christians: “Come
out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive
not of her plagues» (Rev.18:4).
the 28th of October, 1999 in St. Peter's Basilica in Vatican the
meeting of the representatives of the Zoroastrism, the Buddhists, the Shinto,
the Confucians, the Muslims, the Jews, and other non-Christian religions with
the members of the World Council of churches, orthodoxies, Mennonites was held
under the aegis of His Holiest Pope John Paul II. Angry with the supporters of
the Bible and others, who refuse to confirm his spiritual leadership, the Pope
said that everyone should participate in condemnation of the Christian
Fundamentalists, who make the angry speeches, and whose efforts in convincing
the others incite “to hatred and violence”.
he said that the religious leaders offer “tolerance”, mutual understanding,
and respect for all religions. All participants agreed in two key points:
The Pope John Paul
recognized as the spiritual chief of the planet, spiritual instructor and
Religious Fundamentalists (i.e. who believe only in the Word of the God – the
Bible), who come forward
against global ecumenical movement, should be condemned as “dangerous
Extremists” full of hatred and are obliged to keep silence.
