Can anyone help explain the context of the Nostra Aetate and the authority it holds?
It’s a wonderful document. What is the greater context with catholic thought though?
I would think Catholics would say “Islam, Judaism, Hinduism and Buddhism are beautiful paths to God with many holy followers BUT…” the Nostra Aetate seems leave off the but. Doesn’t this get address in John Paul’s faith and reason? What’s the current position?
I had an evangelical theology professor who said Christians can gain gems of insights from other faiths BUT Christians have to foremost be followers and ambassadors of Christ first. Personally I don’t agee that, but I’m not an evangelical. What is the catholic but?
