Christians can't hide mission role in talks with
Jews, cardinal says
VATICAN CITY (CNS) -- In their
relations with Jews, Christians cannot conceal the strong missionary dimension
of their faith, but also must recognize that Jews do not have to convert in
order to be saved, a top Vatican official said. Cardinal Walter Kasper,
president of the Vatican's Commission for Religious Relations with the Jews,
said Nov. 6 that Christians take a different missionary approach toward Jews
than toward followers of other non-Christian religions. That's because
Christians and Jews share a long biblical and religious tradition, a belief in
the same God and a conviction that God will complete human history, he said. The
main difference between the two faiths -- the salvific role of Jesus Christ --
must also be acknowledged, he said. Cardinal Kasper spoke at the Center for
Christian-Jewish Learning at Boston College. His text was made available to
Catholic News Service
by his office at the Vatican.
First Billy Graham and Robert
Shuller say Jesus is not needed!
Then Cardinal Frances Arinze
(Potential next Pope) says Jesus is not necessary for Heaven!
Then Pope John Paul II says
Jesus is not needed for salvation!
Then all the U.S. Bishops
declare Jews do not need Jesus to gain Heaven!
And now we see Cardinal Kasper
again confirms the Vatican is staniding firm on their proclamation that
JESUS CHRIST should not be preached to the Jews!?
