Vatican thanks Muslims for returning God to Europe

A senior Vatican cardinal has thanked Muslims for bringing God back into the public sphere in Europe. Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, head of the Catholic Church’s department for interfaith contacts, said religion was now talked and written about more than ever before in today’s Europe.

“But evil men and seducers shall wax worse and worse, deceiving, and being deceived.”
—2 Timothy 3:13

“And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved.And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie:”
—2Thessalonians 2:11

“It’s thanks to the Muslims,” he said in a speech printed in Friday’s L’Osservatore Romano, the official daily of the Vatican. “Muslims, having become a significant minority in Europe, were the ones who demanded space for God in society.” (Reuters)

    This is profoundly sad! There are a billon Roman Catholics world wide, and their leader teaches that Allah is God, The God of the bible.

    Allah is the moon god of antiquity, not Jehovah God of the bible.

    Millions are going to hell for believing the false teachings of the Roman Catholic cult.
    Yes, Roman Catholicism is a cult, a large one, but certainly a cult!

    “And the woman was arrayed in purple and scarlet. And she was gilded with gold and precious stones and pearls, having a golden cup in her hand full of abominations and filthiness of her fornication. And on her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND OF THE ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.

    And I saw the woman drunk with the blood of the saints and with the blood of the martyrs of Jesus. And when I saw her, I marveled with a great marveling. And the angel said to me, Why did you marvel? “(Revelation 17:4-7 MKJV)

    Why did the Apostle John marvel?

    Because the beast he saw was the Roman Catholic Church. From its start at Pentecost, The Beast was once part of the true church, and claimed Jesus Christ as its Lord and Savior but it became utterly corrupt.

    True Christianity survived, “In spite of, not because of, the Roman Catholic Church.”

    It is still corrupt to this very day, as this head line will testify!

    The ignorance of the Vatican regarding the identity of the god of Islam is unbelievable. Prior to Mohammed’s writings, a plethora of false gods were worshipped by the predecessors of Islam. Mohammed placed all the other moon gods under one and called him, Allah.
    The LORD our God will not share His glory with any other. YHWH is the only God… beside Him, there is no other. Someone needs to share this fact with the Vatican!

    This senior Vatican cardinal needs to fly over the Temple Mount & see what the Muslims have engraved skyward towards heaven: “G-D has no son”.
    They do not serve the Almighty G-D of Abraham, Isaac & Jacob.

    And when Christians demand space for G-D in society, the ACLU blocks us at every turn. A little double standard, huh?

    That’s like thanking WalMart for returning a lovely, civilized shopping experience to America. (Sort of….)

    Which God?

    Allah is certainly NOT the same Creator God of the Bible, e.g Islam says that ‘man was not made in the image of Allah’, ‘Allah supposedly made man from a clot of blood’, Allah enjoys it when the creation suffers with jihads etc. However, most Muslims actually still believe in a creation. This is better than many ‘so-called Christians’ of today who profess that we have all evolved from pond scum (or, going further back, from hydrogen atoms). They also profess that they are wise in a belief that says that 15 billion years ago ‘nothing exploded to create all of the matter, energy and time that we now have in the universe’ and that there is no ‘design’ to be seen in the world.

    I don’t want to seem harsh or condescending, but the “woman” arrayed in purple and scarlet “drunk with the blood of saints and martyrs” in Revelation 17 is not the Catholic church. It’s the revived Hebrew religion of sacrifice.
