On saving idol worshippers

From a second century author…

  • “To make sure that none of us is lost, we must repent from the bottom of our hearts. Since we have been commanded to go out and rescue idolaters and to instruct them, is it not even more important to save souls who already know God? If we are all to be saved, we shall have to help one another and support the weak in their struggle to live a good life. When one of us does wrong, it is for the others to warn him and persuade him of his error.”

But those faithful to Jesus are called idol worshippers because they insist Jesus is Divine and sinless, our only Redeemer and Savior.

    “But those faithful to Jesus are called idol worshippers because they insist Jesus is Divine and sinless, our only Redeemer and Savior.”
    Yes, it’s all upside down.
    What it is to be Catholic is being re-defined by Pope Francis so that faithful Catholics are seen as rebels. So far he has described us as “pseudo-schismatic”, a situation which he says “will end badly” – presumably for us when he declares us incorrigible and therefore reprobate. For now, though, he is telling the media that we are mentally and spiritually unwell (“rigid Catholics” imbued with “Pelagian ideology” rather than “Gospel holiness”) and therefore require gentle handling which he intends to provide by means of accompaniment (coercion / re-education?). See the following link, especially the last paragraph.

    Strange times! A Muslim posted the following on Twitter: “… the Pope is urging Christians to stop preaching Christianity. I don’t understand this, many religions are out there converting others. His very duty is to call people to Christ.”
