Vatican: Jews don't need Christ to be saved

Prophecy Sign:  The coming global religious system, (Revelation 17)


The current Pope and the Catholic Church are behind the push to bring the various religions of the world under one roof.  By declaring Muslims as the brothers/sisters of Christians who all worship the same God, (which we don't), and that Jews do not need Jesus Christ to be saved, (which of course they do as does everybody), the Pope is working hard to bring about a religious ecumenical world order.  This false religious order will be in place just in time for the coming Tribulation and will work to convince the world to bow in worship to the false Christ, (Antichrist),
Vatican: Jews don't need Christ to be saved
Jews can secure eternal salvation without converting to Christianity, senior Catholic theologians say in a report published Thursday, in the latest refinement of their stance on a vexed theological issue. Addressing a question that has long blighted relations between the two faiths, the report also unequivocally states that the Church should not actively seek to convert Jews to Christianity, echoing the stance outlined by former Pope Benedict XVI in a 2011 book. The report, drawn up by the Church's "Commission for religious relations with the Jews," goes further than Benedict however in effectively affirming that Jews can be saved independently of Christ. "Although Jews cannot believe in Jesus Christ as the universal redeemer, they have a part in salvation, because the gifts and the calling of God are irrevocable," the report concludes, according to a summary released to the media.

The Year of Mercy is a time to learn about Islam
Faced with news media images of violence and black flags in the Middle East, the last thing many Catholics might associate with Islam is mercy. Aside from knowing about Muslims' frequent prayer and Ramadan fast, most are unaware of Muslim religious practices, let alone their beliefs about God. But written at the beginning of every chapter of the Quran but one, and recited by Muslims at the start of every meal, prayer and task, is the invocation Bismillah al-Rahman al-Rahim, which can be translated "In the name of God, the Entirely Merciful, the Especially Merciful."  In his papal bull announcing the jubilee, Francis referenced both Islam's and Judaism's emphases on God's mercy, writing, "There is an aspect of mercy that goes beyond the confines of the Church." He urged Catholics to use the Year of Mercy as an opportunity to learn about Islam and other religions to "eliminate every form of close-mindedness and disrespect ... violence and discrimination."
