Francis: Don't Be "Afraid" Of Different Religions Because God "Allowed" It

Pope Francis made his recent Morocco trip because God wants that there be "fraternity" among the Church and the Muslims, Francis explained at the April 3 General Audience.

Francis wanted to be with "our Muslim brothers and sisters" whom he called "children of Abraham like us.”

God wanted to "allow" the existence of many religions, he added, "Scholastic theologians say: God's permissive will; he wanted to allow this reality."

Contradicting Saint Paul, Francis claimed that all religions look to God, “We should not be afraid of difference, God has allowed it."

If this reasoning were true one should neither be "afraid" of climate change, wars or pedophilia because God "allows" this as well.

Yeah sure, i mean God allowed Adam and Eve to fall by their own will, not by his will, i would suggest the same thing applies to a fake religion!

Muslims are children of Abraham like Catholics? St. Paul says about the Jews, which would certainly apply equally to Islam, in Romans 9: "They are not all Israelites who are sprung from Israel; nor because they are the descendants of Abraham, are they all his children...they are not sons of God who are the children of the flesh..." I'll take St. Paul over Francis.

"The most Holy Roman Church firmly believes, professes and preaches that none of those existing outside the Catholic Church, not only en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Paganism, but also en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jews and heretics and en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Schism, can have a share in life eternal; but that they will go into the "eternal fire which was prepared for the devil and his angels" (Matthew 25:41), unless before death they are joined with Her; and that so important is the unity of this ecclesiastical body that only those remaining within this unity can profit by the sacraments of the Church unto salvation, and they alone can receive an eternal recompense for their fasts, their almsgivings, their other works of Christian piety and the duties of a Christian soldier. No one, let his almsgiving be as great as it may, no one, even if he pour out his blood for the Name of Christ, can be saved, unless he remain within the bosom and the unity of the Catholic Church." The Council of Florence.
God is allowing you to make a fool of yourself now but he will not be mocked at your judgement. Repent.
Roger that, Jim.
1. To Know Jesus
2. To Love Jesus
3. To bring others to JESUS....
Purpose of a Catholics life...
God is not Allah and the heaven is not Nirvana. Why therefore should Got allow different religions who do not know the holy trinity?
