Pope's Possible Error

"Benedict XVI's Mistake + Spiritual Ramblings"

Pope Benedict's mistake (Boston Globeby James Carroll) "When the likes of Richard Dawkins, Sam Harris, or ChristopherHitchens, citing insights of science or the rise of sectarianviolence, denounce the very idea of God, fundamentalists strikeback by attacking pillars on which such modern criticism stands.In this mode, Pope Benedict XVI last week issued two unexpected decrees, restoring the atavistic Mass of the Council of Trentand resuscitating an outmoded Catholic exclusivism - the notionof a pope-centered Catholicism as the only authentic way to God.In these reactionary initiatives, Pope Benedict inadvertentlyshows that he shares a basic conviction with Dawkins et al. -that religion is a primitive impulse, unable to withstand thechallenge of contemporary thought."

IIslam does consider Issa Lord. (Messiah and King of kings, anyhow.)Why bother them if they don't believe he was killed in crucifixion(beamed up while still alive) or not the Son of God because Goddoesn't need a son and heir (God doesn't die).
Not the Lord of the Federation and they will not understand until they "hear" the Gospel....."no one comes to the Father except the Father beckins." Like the Ethiopian said to St. Phillip on the road to Emmaus....."How can I be saved unless I hear the Gospel?" Our service to God is to preach the Gospel to ALL..including all cults which includes islam. You better believe God does not die...."homeostasis" includes all frequencies (spiritual) ALL life comes from pre-existing life...Biogenesis..the Essence of God. Same with the world.."world without end." Actually...Jesus refers to Himself as the Son of Man...probably He was referencing Genesis...Let Us Create Man in Our Image...(no doubt Altairian)
He was beamed up after He was dead..revived and then seen first by the women. She couldn't even "touch" Him yet for He had not yet risen to His Father. (maybe radiation of some kind..a residual effect of the Resurrection process.)
Why bother them? telling them that Jesus died for their transgressions is a bother? We are COMMANDED to preach the Gospel to ALL people. Ecumenism that is not based on John 14:6 is "tolerance"..not ecumenism. Compromising the Blood of Christ could very well be the worst sin a person can commit.
Instead of negotiating with evil (islam) we should be brave enough to share salvation with them through our Lord Jesus Christ. Many people are and many converts are martyred. Those martyred for Christ will be rewarded by our Father in Heaven. Being "tolerant" of islam condemns them to hell and we will be held accountable. There is but ONE Faith and ONE Lord. We should not kill them but bring the love of Jesus Christ to them. (However....we need to "defend" ourselves from their violence if we are to bring the Gospel to islam. If you are ashamed of the Gospel of Jesus Christ (John 14:6) He will also be ashamed of us. "Political correctness" on the issue of TRUTH and REALITY has created the culture of death. If Jesus Christ is indeed Emmanuel......the Resurrected Son of God....NOTHING ELSE MATTERS! Being legalistic will destroy souls..NOT save them. Those who spread Christianity by the sword in the Crusades were working for satan..just as islam is today. The Law of Free Will gives you the choice to choose TRUTH or choose what you think is TRUTH. Just remember......Free Will without consequences IS NOT FREE WILL.
