The Anatomy of Religious Errors
(b) There is Salvation outside the Roman Catholic Faith, as Jesus pointed out (*) and we have amply shown; (2)
(*) John said: Master, we saw one casting out devils in thy name, who followeth not us, and we forbade him. But Jesus said: Do not forbid him. For there is no man that doth a miracle in my name, and can soon speak ill of me. For he that is not against you, is for you. For whosoever shall give you to drink a cup of water in my name, because you belong to Christ: amen I say to you, he shall not lose his reward. [Mark 9: 37-40]
Do note that Jesus said "belong to Christ" and not "belong this group".

Francis and four points of Apostate Action - Islamic prayers to be held at the Vatican
by John Vennari
This Sunday, June 8, Pope Francis will allow for the first time in history Islamic prayers from the Quoran to be recited at the Vatican. The service is said to be in the cause of Peace in the Middle East (see report below). Members of Judaism will be part of the interfaith gathering as well. This radical initiative is scandalous on at least four counts:
1) The Prayers of Islam worship a false god; not the true
God who is the Blessed Trinity; not the true God Jesus Christ, who said "No man comes to the
Father but through Me." Speaking on the modernist notion that various religions worship the same
God, the eminent theologian Father Reginald Garrigou-Lagrange explained that such a tenet denies
the principle of non-contradiction, which is the most fundamental principle of reason. Father
Garrigou-Lagrange explains, "It is injurious to say that God would consider with equanimity all
religions while one teaches truth and one teachers error, when one promises the good and one
promises the evil. To say this would be to affirm that God would be indifferent to good and evil,
to what is honest and shameful.
Following you may see what Mohammed writes about Jesus in the Qur'an
In Surah III. 48
"And God will teach him the Book and Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel."
We further read in S.II.45
"a Word from Him (God) ... Will be Christ Jesus..."
The Prophet Mohammed acknowledges here far more than most Christians believe in, if we gauge their belief by how much importance they give to the reality that "...in Jesus resides the Wisdom, the Law and the Gospel."
Now, Mohammed spells out the Mission of Jesus
In Surah III.49 he writes that God said:
"And (appoint him) an apostle (messenger) to the Children of Israel, (with this message): [ In the following statement it is Jesus speaking, according to Prophet Mohammed's account]
"I have come to you, with a Sign from your Lord, in that I make for you out of clay, as it were, the figure of a bird, and breathe into it, and it becomes a bird by God's leave... (I have come to you) to attest the Law which was before me. And to make lawful to you part of what was (before) forbidden to you; I have come to you with a Sign from your Lord. So fear God and obey me."
In Surah III 55, God the Father, according to the Prophet Mohammed, said:
'Behold! God said: "O Jesus! I will take thee and raise thee to Myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme; I will make those who follow Thee superior."'
In the same verse we read about Jesus' Resurrection and Glorification: "I will take thee and raise thee to Myself and clear thee (of the falsehoods) of those who blaspheme..."
Exactly which is the false God of the Muslims that Mr. Vennari is talking about?
Regarding the Trinity....
It appears that confusion sets within the Qur'an - or is it that God chose not to reveal to Mohammed the reality of the Trinity at that time?
For those not familiar with Islam: Muslims do not believe in the Trinity, yet, one may read about it in the Qur'an.
In Surah IV. 171 we read:
O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion; nor say of God ought but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) an apostle of God, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a Spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in God and His apostles. Say not "Trinity".
They do not understand the Trinity and may even teach "say not 'Trinity'" while at the same time Mohammed is defining it just as the Trinity is defined.
2) Pope Francis' act fosters the religious indifferentism condemned by the Catholic Church and condemned by reason. Great popes such as Leo XIII, Pius IX, Gregory XVI and others all condemned religious indifferentism; a false system that gives the impression that any religion is good enough for salvation. Along with the popes already mentioned, Pope Pius VIII forcefully condemned this error in the encyclical Traditi humilati nostrae:
"And this is the lethal system of religious indifferentism, which is repudiated by the light of natural reason itself. In this light we are warned that, among many religions which disagree with one another, when one is true, that there can be no association with light and darkness. Against these repeaters of ancient errors, the people must be assured, Venerable Brethren, that the profession of the Catholic Faith is alone the true one, since the Apostle tells us that there is one Lord and one baptism. As Jerome says, the man who eats the Lamb outside of this house is profane, and the man who is not in the ark of Noah is going to perish in the deluge. Neither is there any other name apart from the Name of Jesus given to men by which we must be saved. He who believes will be saved, and he who shall not have believed will be condemned."
It seems safe to say the Papa Bergoglio would blush with embarrassment at this authentic Catholic
teaching, and would probably die rather than reiterate it, or rather than conduct his Vatican and
ecclesiastical policies accordingly.
Just as the Sabbath was created for man and not man for the Sabbath [Mark 2:27], religion was
created as a means to establish a connection between man and God. As we have amply proven
(2), there IS Salvation outside the Roman
Catholic Church. Jesus Himself confirmed it [Mark 9: 37-40]. However, we must not confuse that
with Salvation outside Jesus Christ. There is NO salvation if Jesus Christ,
and His Mission, are denied. Something that
Muslims do not seem to do [read our comments under item 1) above] while Jews do deny Jesus
and His Mission.
However, as we have amply testified to
the Catholic Faith is the faith (religious methodology) which contains the greatest number of
revealed Truths, thus living it provides the most trouble free route to Salvation.
3) It turns Peace in the Middle East into an idol, a false
god that must be appeased at the expense of the ordinary and universal magisterium of the Church
since the time of the Apostles. The First Commandment does not say, "Thou shalt not be an
atheist," but says rather, "Thou shalt not have strange gods before me." The trampling of Catholic
truth and practice in a quest for a humanistic peace is, effectively, apostate actions in the
service of an idol, a false god; the ever-illusive "peace in the Middle East"
There will be no Peace as long as there is no Justice and there will only be Justice when we live
the First Commandment. We are more concerned about the rampant idolatry within the Roman Catholic
Church than the efforts of making Peace an objective worth pursuing
as long as a pact with satan is not attempted to
achieve it. We either serve God or Mammon - trying to serve both is an ancient trick that satan
has been playing for millennia and man keeps falling for it.
Regarding "rampant idolatry within the Roman Catholic Church"
that we mention - it is so bad that images and relics are "adored" at the expense of the True
Eucharistic Presence of our Lord Jesus Christ. We have written so much about this abomination that
we are not going to repeat ourselves in this space.
4) The act will bring punishment rather than blessings.
Belgium's Cardinal Mercier explained that the First World War was actually a punishment to the
world for governments placing the one true Church on the same level with false religions. How much
worse when this is done by Catholic leaders, in the quest of a humanistic peace. In his 1918
Pastoral Letter, Cardinal Mercier said:
In addition - if there was and is indifference to religion, the culprits are precisely those who were entrusted by Jesus to Evangelize the world and who were led by the likes of Cardinal Mercier.
The very inter-religious prayer that is supposed to foster peace, as Cardinal Mercier explains, is a form of blasphemy and will end up to be a source of chastisement.
Where are the Cardinals, bishops and priests who have the faith and fortitude to openly denounce Francis' actions, and to warn their faithful against this defiance of the Catholic Faith?
As Father Frederick Faber warned, "Where there is no hatred of heresy, there is no holiness".
The word "hatred" does not belong in the same sentence that
contains the word "holiness" except as follows:
Where there is hatred, there is no
holiness.... and we have the entire New Testament to
back up that statement. Rejection of heresy, yes! Rejection of idolatry, yes! Rejection of those
who claim to serve God yet they are ministers of Mammon, yes!
Making matters worse, Francis will encourage this Muslim/Vatican action on the Feast of Pentecost. Indeed, these actions show the blasphemous nature of the Conciliar "New Pentecost".
From the beginning of the Bergoglio pontificate, we knew it would be a bumpy ride. We knew we were headed for heartbreak and scandal. We knew he was a Vatican II radical who will recklessly drive the Conciliar revolution to even greater romps than his Conciliar predecessors. His actions call for greater resistance on our part, increased fidelity to the perennial teaching and practice of the Church, and a greater need to instill the counter-revolutionary spirit in ourselves and in our young ones.
We do not follow, imitate or respect his inter-religious actions. We pray we may soon be granted a Pope who is not in the poisonous grip of a modernist mindset.
Prayers of reparation are in order. And as the message of Fatima encourages, "Pray a great deal
for the Holy Father".
Indeed, indeed... considering that it was precisely Pius XI who, by ignoring Fatima, delivered the
world to satan!
The grave error that Bergoglio committed by staging this latest "look at me!" act is a most grave one and has nothing to do with the much trumpeted four points above. Bergoglio caused great scandal to the pathetically under Evangelized Catholics by staging such a scandalous event.... and we know what Jesus said about causing scandal:
