Assisi 2011: The Papacy’ s Interfaith Abomination

Conclusion

  In his farewell address to the religious delegates, Benedict XVI said, among other things, that the Assisi “pilgrimage” highlighted a genuine desire to contribute to the good of humanity, and of “how much we have to share with one another.”[24]  However, although it is doubtless true that many sincere religious people want to “contribute to the good of humanity” in some way, the plain fact of the matter is that many others have no such interest – including many who were present at this very event.  Roman Catholics and Muslims, for example, believe that the only genuine way to “contribute to the good of humanity” is to convert the whole world to their respective religions, by whatever means they possibly can.  This has ever been the desire of these two violent and powerful religions.  Therefore, all these talks are at the end of the day utterly meaningless.  They are merely designed to fool the world into believing that these religions are tolerant, decent religions which have the good of mankind at heart.  This is a demonic lie.  Religions such as Romanism and Islam have no genuine desire to “share with each other”.  They desire to conquer each other!  Also, the exclusivity of the true Gospel (Jn. 14:6; Acts 4:12) means that biblical Christians have nothing to share with those of other religions except the true Gospel of Christ!  This is why true Christians can never enter into such interfaith “dialogue” as occurred at Assisi.  It is simply not the true Church’s mission, and would be sinful in the eyes of the Lord, for all the religions of the earth are satanic.  Light has nothing to do with darkness, and this is why true Christians evangelise the world – they go into all the world and seek to preach the Gospel to every creature (Mk. 16:15)!  Why evangelise at all, if all religions are equal and their various teachings should be respected?  We do not all worship the same God, as interfaith pluralists and syncretists would have us believe!  There is in truth only one true God, Jesus said in Jn. 17:3.  All who do not worship this one true God are following Satan.  All the religions of the world are satanic at their very heart and core.

  All these facts reveal that the Roman Catholic institution is not the true Church of Jesus Christ: firstly it is shown by its deception at this very Assisi event, and secondly by the fact that if it really was the true Church, it would not want to “share” with other religions anyway!

  Benedict said, “As we go our separate ways, let us draw strength from this experience and, wherever we may be, let us continue refreshed on the journey that leads to truth, the pilgrimage that leads to peace.”  But again – the Lord Jesus Christ is the truth! (Jn. 14:6).  And therefore those who know Him, who have been irresistibly drawn to Him by sovereign grace, who have believed in Him, who have been saved from their sins by Him, are not on any “journey leading to truth”!  This again just reveals that Roman Catholicism is utterly ignorant of the truth, for it is utterly ignorant of Christ.  If it knew Him, its leader would not have spoken this way.  True Christians are not still searching for “truth”; Roman Catholics, and those of other religions, still are.  They have not found the Pearl of Great Price.

 

  The world’s religions are united against the Lord Jesus Christ, His true Church, and His glorious Gospel.  They differ in many respects, but on this they are in agreement: that they hate the light, and relentlessly wage war against it, in innumerable ways.  To the true, Bible-believing Christian, the message is clear: “Do all things without murmurings and disputings: that ye may be blameless and harmless, the sons of God, without rebuke, in the midst of a crooked and perverse nation, among whom ye shine as lights in the world; holding forth the word of life” (Phil. 2:14-16).  Against all such ecumenical and interfaith lies, we must raise our voices, hold forth the only Word of life, and shine as lights in this world of darkness by reflecting the light of the One who is the light of the world (Jn. 8:12; Matt. 5:16)!
