in response to reader comment: Pope on Islam--surprise?

Submitted by Rebeka (Switzerland), Sep 15, 2006 at 20:56

I think it is outstanding and marvelous to hear one pope to say something like that. Clearly this pope understands not only islam well, but also european spiritual state when he says that it banished god out of their society. ยจ

I m a pentecostal christian and this is the first pope I like. I bless him. I hope he wont dissapoint me... What I see is that truth is more important to this man that diplomacy and peace at any cost. We are not to be ashamed or compromise the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ for diplomatic reasons or any other, but he is there to do his job and tell the truth to the world, for the whole world to hear it. We ought to call evil an evil.

If Christ didnt ressurect, than our faith is in vain. How can then we pray with muslims as if our god is the same. Their god has no son, and therefore nothing about biblical Jesus is true to them., nor death, nor resurection! Surely this pope understands what his predessesor didnt: That chrisitans and muslims dont have the same god, and that we therefore can clearly express ourselves in saying that our god is true god and not hide the truth from them. We owe it "to the jews and to the gentiles", we really have the GOOD NEWS. And for the others who hesitate or say that both is truth, and that bible and kuran contain SOME truth, Elijah in the bible says: how long will you hesitate or serve 2 gods, if your god is baal follow him, if your god is jahwe, follow him then. Both cant be true. Only the one who doesnt read bible nor kuran can say that those two religions have same god. Obviously pope reads both. I appreciate him for that.
