Not sure where to post this.
I am really having a hard time with Nostrae Aetatae.
It just seems against Tradition, the Fathers and the Bible.
This is what I’m getting from it (haven’t read it extensively)
All religions lead to heaven.
Allah = God
It’s okay to think of Jesus Christ the Son of God as only a great prophet.
The moslems believe in the Virgin Mary and the True God, so they are righteous in His sight. They’re all good. No need to bother with them.
The Church ESTEEMS Moslems (Definition of Esteem : Respect and ADMIRATION)
It’s okay to follow your religion, you’ll get to heaven if you’re sincere.
Nobody follows a heresy, is heterodox, or is a heretic.
There is no need to convert these people anymore?
Whatever happened to heresy and heretics, or even subtle heterodoxy which both Jesus and the Fathers of the Church seemed always quick to condemn?
What happened to the straight and narrow? the ONE Church? Unity is not being a massive pudding of all religions. :shrug:
Besides all this, Protestant influence on the Church in America is devastating our identity and destroying all depth of theology, orthodoxy and practices (in the liturgy).
What is REAL Ecumenism?
