Why Does Catholicism Embrace Islam?

This is very simple to answer; on p.195 of the Catholic Catechism it states the following;

841: The Church’s relationship with the Muslims.
“The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims; these profess to hold the faith of Abraham, and together with us they adore the one, merciful God, mankind’s judge on the last day.”

Brothers and sisters we must never seek to answer questions like these without going to the horses mouth and this we have done. In fact the Catechism is a fascinating read and uncovers all sorts of previously mysterious ideas and doctrines and actions and decisions taken by the Pope and the catholic church.

It also explains many things like why certain politicians favour Catholicism. The reason as usual is related to the power that the ‘mother’ church wields and for those who don;t really have faith in God, are unbelievers or nominal it only makes sense in a world where might makes right, from a worldly standpoint to be on the side of power and not truth.

Hence do not be surprised when you see people like Tony Blair, Bill Clinton, Hilary Clinton, Putin (and others like him yet to jump) and a whole host of others who may well have appeared to adhere to Christianity, or even appeared irreligious or of nominal CofE type protestant faith – jump ship. As a career move, from a political, financial and where you come in the pecking order from a social standing viewpoint it makes all the sense in the world.

It is up to you however to decide wether it’s such a great career move from an eternal perspective. I might add one thing; that eternity is a long time to be in a job that turned out not to be quite what you expected, or what it was cracked up to be at the interview.

How Do Catholics See The Pope in Relation to Jesus Christ?

It would appear that according to their own writings, their official Catechism and teachings that The Pope is the new ‘Christ. See the quote below for the answer to this question from the horse’s mouth.

Does the Pope Represent Jesus Christ on earth?
The Pope is not only the representative of Jesus Christ, but he is Jesus Christ Hismelf hidden under the veil of flesh. Does the Pope speak? It is Jesus christ who speaks…” – Pope Piux X Catholiquie Nationale, July 13, 1895

 

Is this the truth? We say; of course not! – Jesus told us in his own words we would not have to be told who the Christ is upon his return in The Bible, he would come not like the first time, as a servant. but he would return in a way so all eyes and ears would know without a doubt who he was! But don’t take our word for it… find out for yourself by studying The Bible for yourself and to “show yourself approved” as The Bible requires.

Do All Religions Lead To The Same God

Don’t all religious beliefs take you to the same God in the end?

It’s a nice thought isn’t it.. that all religions, beliefs, religious ideologies, faiths and denomination and sects within those beliefs ultimately bring you to the same God! Ted Turner thinks so and he’s a really clever and nice chap you could trust isn’t he! You know the guy that believes in world depopulation. You first Ted!

So – is Bhudism better than shamanism? I Catholicism better than traditional Church of England?… what is the the Church of England anyway?… Surely they all lead to the same God? Not so fast!

The truth is, until not so long ago myself included, most Christians today don’t even know how their own church came into being, and have no idea where the rituals and religious beliefs of their particular denomination arose from. Here we discuss these vitally important issues.
