Pope Calls Muslims "Brothers and Sisters" -- As Harmony With Islam Is Consistent With Roman Catholic Doctrine

Posted

250x250-Faded-Knox-Falconer-Quote


Excerpt: NEW YORK - During a speech at St. Patrick's Cathedral in New York City on Thursday night, the Roman Catholic pontiff known as Francis offered prayers for his Muslim "brothers and sisters" on the Islamic Feast of Sacrifice following word of a deadly stampede during the annual pilgrimage to Mecca. "I would like to express two sentiments for my Muslim brothers and sisters," he began. "First, I send my greetings as they celebrate the Feast of Sacrifice [Eid al-Adha]. I would have my greeting to have been warmer. My sentiments are closeness." "I am close to them in the face of tragedy, the tragedy they suffered in Mecca," Francis continued. "In this moment, I give assurances in their prayers. I unite myself with you all in prayer to Almighty God, all merciful." ...

Jorge Bergoglio, who was selected as the leader of the world's 1.2 billion Roman Catholics in 2013, has expressed a desire for ecumenicism toward Muslims from the beginning of his tenure, issuing greetings during Muslim holy days. "Turning to mutual respect in inter-religious relations, especially between Christians and Muslims, we are called to respect the religion of the other, its teachings, its symbols, its values," he wrote in a 2013 statement during Ramadan.

The pontiff also met with Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu, the secretary general of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC), later that year and visited Turkey's Blue Mosque last November, expressing reverence during a moment of prayer observed by the nation's grand mufti, who led him on a tour of the Islamic facility. ... harmony with Muslims is consistent with Roman Catholic doctrine.

"The Catechism of the Catholic Church, paragraph 841, reads, 'The plan of salvation also includes those who acknowledge the Creator, in the first place amongst whom are the Muslims together with us they adore the one, merciful God,'" ... "This is a blatant rejection of the teachings of Christ, who declared He is the only way to the Father. Those who do not believe Jesus is God will die in their sins." (emphases added)

As usual SWRB does not necessarily agree with every point made in every resources to which we link -- we only agree with that which is in accord with the what God teaches in the Bible.

The Turks (Muslims - ed.) in the present day, who though proclaiming with full throat that the Creator of heaven and earth is their God, yet by their rejection of Christ substitute an idol in His place. - John Calvin, Institutes of the Christian Religion, 2:6:4.






Muslim's (Islam) Persecuting and Murdering Christians, Even Beheading Christian Children (Free MP3, Videos, etc.)

John Wesley taught that unconverted Muslims and other heathen will be accepted by God on the basis of their good works. Wesley's belief (was) that there will be unconverted Moslems and other heathen who will be accepted on the basis of their good works. The words of our Lord in John 3:7, "Ye must be born again," contrast sharply with Wesley's own view that "the merciful God" sees Moslems and "regards the lives and tempers of men more than their ideas." - WESLEY AND MURRAY WHO FOLLOWED HIM (emphases added)



It does seem that the fourth iron kingdom was in fact both the pre-Papal and the pre-Islamic undivided Pagan Roman Empire, as well as the later Western-Roman Papal and the contemporaneous Eastern-Roman Islamic Empire into which it then subdivided. Indeed, both 'Mahomet' and 'the Pope' -- as we have already seen -- Dr. Calvin called 'the two horns of Antichrist.' Thus they correspond to the two legs of the later Roman Empire -- Islam and the Papacy. - Dr. Francis Nigel Lee, Calvin on Islam (2000) on the Puritan Hard Drive

If it be asked, then, by what things chiefly the Christian religion has a standing amongst us, and maintains its truth, it will be found that the following two not only occupy the principal place, but comprehend under them all the other parts, and consequently the whole substance of Christianity, viz., a knowledge first, of the right way to worship God; and secondly of the source from which salvation is to be sought. When these are kept out of view, though we may glory in the name of Christians, our profession is empty and vain.

The principle that the church hath power to institute any thing or ceremony belonging to the worship of God, either as to matter or manner, beyond the observance of such circumstances as necessarily attend such ordinances as Christ Himself hath instituted, lies at the bottom of all the horrible superstition and idolatry, of all the confusion, blood, persecution, and wars, that have for so long a season spread themselves over the face of the Christian world.

GEORGE GILLESPIE
By communicating with idolaters in their rites and ceremonies, we ourselves become guilty of idolatry; even as Ahaz, 2 Kings 16:10, was an idolater, eo ipso, that he took the pattern of an altar from idolaters. Forasmuch, then, as kneeling before the consecrated bread, the sign of the cross, surplice, festival days (Christ-mass, Easter, etc. - ed.), bishopping, bowing down to the altar, administration of the sacraments in private places, etc., are the wares of Rome, the baggage of Babylon, the trinkets of the whore, the badges of Popery, the ensigns of Christ's enemies, and the very trophies of antichrist, -- we cannot conform, communicate and symbolise with the idolatrous Papists in the use of the same, without making ourselves idolaters by participation. Shall the chaste spouse of Christ take upon her the ornaments of the whore? Shall the Israel of God symbolise with her who is spiritually called Sodom and Egypt? Shall the Lord's redeemed people wear the ensigns of their captivity? Shall the saints be seen with the mark of the beast? Shall the Christian church be like the antichristian, the holy like the profane, religion like superstition, the temple of God like the synagogue of Satan?"

Pastor Greg Price Reviews & Recommends the Puritan Hard Drive But alas! Satan envied our happiness, brake our ranks, poisoned our fountains, mudded and defiled our streams; and while the watchmen slept, the wicked one sowed his tares: whence these divers years bygone, for ministerial authority, we had lordly supremacy and pomp; for beauty, fairding; for simplicity, whorish buskings; for sincerity, mixtures; for zeal, a Laodicean temper; for doctrines, men's precepts; for wholesome fruits, a medley of rites; for feeders we had fleecers; for pastors, wolves and impostors; for builders of Jerusalem, rebuilders of Jericho; for unity, rents; for progress, defection. Truth is fallen in the streets, our dignity is gone, our credit lost, our crown is fallen from our heads; our reputation is turned to imputation: before God and man we justly deserve the censure of the degenerate vine; a backsliding people, an apostate perjured nation, by our breaking a blessed covenant so solemnly sworn. Yet, behold! when this should have been our doom, when all was almost gone, when we were down the hill, when the pit's mouth was opened, and we were at the falling in, and at the very shaking hands with Rome; the Lord, strong and gracious, pitied us, looked on us, and cried, saying, "Return, return, ye backsliding people; come, and I will heal your backslidings."

An excellent introductory treatment of classic Reformed teaching about the regulative principle of worship (or what is sometimes called "the Scriptural law of worship"). Contrasts biblical Reformed teaching about worship with Lutheran, Roman Catholic, etc., errors and superstitions.
 
 
The matter is not of so small importance, as some suppose. The question is, whether God or man ought to be obeyed in matters of religion? In mouth, all do confess that only God is worthy of sovereignty. But after many -- by the instigation of the devil, and by the presumptuous arrogance of carnal wisdom and worldly policy -- have defaced God's holy ordinance, men fear not to follow what laws and common consent (mother of all mischief) have established and commanded. But thus continually I can do nothing but hold, and affirm all things polluted, yea, execrable and accursed, which God by his Word has not sanctified in his religion. God grant you his Holy Spirit rightly to judge.

PASTOR PAUL WASHER REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE  
 
Paul Washer Puritan Hard Drive Quote Graphic "With the Puritan Hard Drive I can now carry one of the largest Puritan and Reformed libraries in my pocket.
 
No matter where I am, as long as there is some form of power source to operate a computer, I have access to some of the best Puritan and Reformed literature available.
 
The Puritan Hard Drive is a tremendous blessing. I travel frequently to many parts of the globe. The Puritan Hard Drive allows me to continue my studies on the road with the same depth as when I am seated in my study at home.
 
The wonderful portability of this massive Puritan library (and remarkable research software) makes the Puritan Hard Drive ideal for missionaries, students, or anyone who needs instant access to the best Reformation study materials in a variety of locations.
 
There is much more to the Puritan Hard Drive than just convenience, portability and the exceptional quality and extraordinary number of Reformation resources it includes. Even if a minister owned the largest printed Puritan library in the world, he would not be able to properly research the material. However, the KnowledgeBase software on the Puritan Hard Drive provides an effective road map to access the material in ways that are easy-to-use, organized and highly productive. With the click of a button, you can easily do ten hours worth of research in just seconds!
 
Having the Puritan Hard Drive is like owning the largest Puritan and Reformed Library in the world along with a full time research assistant with his PhD in Puritan Studies from Oxford or Cambridge.
 
Imagine not only owning the largest Puritan and Reformed library, but having a full-time team of world-class research assistants at your beck and call.
 
The high level of educational and scholarly functionality, combined with a marvelous library of over 12,500 top Puritan and Reformed resources and an extremely reasonable price, really makes obtaining the Puritan Hard Drive a stewardship issue. It is almost as if God is saying, "Here is a tool that will lead you to more truth faster than ever before. Make the best possible use of it and bring much glory to My Name." (2 Timothy 2:15, Ephesians 5:16).
  
In the history of extra-biblical study and research tools there has never before been a resource as useful as the Puritan Hard Drive. The immense body of Reformation material (books, MP3s and videos) on the Puritan Hard Drive, along with the phenomenal proprietary software program that is included, makes the Puritan Hard Drive a valuable tool for Reformation in our day.  
 
As a member of the HeartCry Missionary Society, I am witness to the great needs of Christians throughout the globe. Possibly the greatest need is sound Christian literature. Even though many Third World pastors read English, they have very few good books available to them. Even if we could afford to buy each indigenous minister a small library, the cost of shipping would be astronomical.  With the Puritan Hard Drive we can provide pastors throughout the globe with one of the most complete Puritan and Reformed libraries at a fraction of the cost.
 
The Puritan Hard Drive is also ideal for situations where concealment is a priority in countries which are hostile to the Gospel. The Puritan Hard Drive is the most compact way to smuggle the light of over 12,500 Reformation resources (with powerful study software) into the spiritual darkness of those nations that are in most need of Gospel truth."

PASTOR GREG L. PRICE REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE 
  
Pastor Greg Price Reviews & Recommends the Puritan Hard Drive "I was one of those who had profited much from using the plethora of out-of-print Reformation materials offered by Still Waters Revival Books in the 62 CDs (Puritan CDs and Reformation CDs) for a number of years in  my ministry -- works that I could only have found in select libraries (usually hundreds of miles away from my residence).
 
With the CDs, it took a little while to go to the index of each set, locate the documents I needed, and then find the correct CD. Of course, the time was always well spent in finding that particular document that I needed.
 
However, now that I have the Puritan Hard Drive, I am able to use my time much more efficiently in finding that particular document I need by quickly searching for it and finding it in a matter of seconds. It's like going from "dial up" to "high-speed" Internet!
 
And for all of those documents that have a font that are in block letters, I am able to simply cut and paste from the Puritan Hard Drive to my own document with ease.
 
Amazing surprises do come in small packages!
 
If you want to understand Reformed theology (i.e., the whole counsel of God) the Puritan Hard Drive is unsurpassed, outside the Bible itself. The First and Second Reformations gave us the most faithful Scriptural teaching and preaching since the time of the Apostles, and there is no other resource, outside Scripture itself, where you can find so much of God's truth as in the Puritan Hard Drive.
 
May the Lord continue to use this most profitable tool to promote a Third Reformation that encompasses the whole world (Isaiah 2:2-4)!"

Price (Author, Theologian, Covenanted Presbyterian Pastor, USA) Free online books, MP3s and videos by Greg Price and at Sermonaudio (SWRB considers Greg Price to be the most doctrinally sound preacher alive today, because he holds completely to the original Westminster Standards and all the biblical attainments of the Second or Covenanted Reformation.) 
 
"Nevertheless, whereto we have already attained, let us walk by the same rule, let us mind the same thing." - Philippians 3:16, which applies just as much to the family, the church and the state, as it does to the individual.

250x250-Faded-Bennett-Quote "The Puritan Hard Drive is a massive collection of primary Puritan resources, dozens of which are very hard to find anywhere else in the world.

250x250-Faded-Schwertley-PHD-Quote.jpg "I would like to commend our brothers at Still Waters Revival Books for putting together the most complete collection of classic and rare Puritan and Covenanter works.
  
We should rejoice to see so many long out of print works finally available in an easily affordable and searchable format. No longer do we solely have to wait for expensive reprints to trickle out one at a time, year by year.
  
Every scholar, pastor, elder and professing Christian should take a great interest in the Puritan Hard Drive, for it sets before us the golden age of Protestant piety, preaching and scholarship. Everyone should benefit from the labors of these dear, departed saints."

JERRY JOHNSON REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE   

250x250-Faded-Nicene-Council-Jerry-Johnson-Blue.jpg "If you search the Internet for Reformed and Puritan works you will inevitably see a banner for a product called the Puritan Hard Drive. I often thought, "why would I want to purchase a hard drive when so much of the information (probably) contained on it could be easily found with a free search on the Internet?" Was I ever wrong!

The Puritan Hard Drive is the best resource money can buy.
  
It is easy, simple to use and the search feature cut down my time searching web pages that had absolutely nothing to do with the query I typed into the search engine. Not to mention a lot of the material is not accessible on the Internet.

To have so many books and articles at my fingers-tips is both truly amazing and a blessing. The Puritan Hard Drive just added thousands of volumes that I never could afford, nor store, to my library.

If you, like me, love the Puritans and Reformed theology, then the Puritan Hard Drive is simply a resource that you cannot live without."

PASTOR W. J. MENCAROW REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE  

250x250-Faded-Mencarow-Puritan-Hard-Drive-Quote-2.jpg "The Puritan Hard Drive is the must have digital learning device for Puritan and Reformed studies.

Nothing like it has ever been available before!

If you don't have it you are almost certainly not learning as much as you could about God, or growing in grace at a pace that the Puritan Hard Drive, by the grace of God, facilitates.

There is no other way to get such easy, convenient and inexpensive access to so many great works from the best Reformation and Puritan preachers and teachers, past and present --  and the study software on the Puritan Hard Drive is out of this world in terms of usefulness!

If necessary, sell what you have (that does not draw you closer to God) to get the Puritan Hard Drive, and prayerfully use it until you become, by the Lord's sovereign and sanctifying grace, the most extraordinary Christian you can be (for His glory!)."

DR. C. MATTHEW McMAHON REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE

Dr. C. Matthew McMahon Puritan Hard Drive Quote Graphic "In the history of the church's sanctification I don't believe there has been a more valuable extra-biblical resource and tool than the Puritan Hard Drive.
 
It holds some of the most priceless Reformed works of God-centered and Christ-glorifying truth that were ever penned.
 
Most students, ministers and scholars of the Bible would never personally acquire even half the literal number of books on the Puritan Hard Drive, much less the extreme caliber of its contents.
 
In God's providence modern day Christians have been chosen to be the recipients of both a theological and practical blessing. May we not squander it."

DR. VODDIE BAUCHAM REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE
 
Dr. Voddie Baucham Puritan Hard Drive Quote Graphic I want you to know that I have enjoyed my Puritan Hard Drive immensely!
 
I simply could not have imagined such a resource before getting my hands on it!
 
To have that much information from a consistent, biblical, orthodox, and gospel-centered point of view is simply astonishing. 
 
Anyone who admires the Puritans simply must have the Puritan Hard Drive. 
 
From Pastors to Ph.D. candidates, there is simply nothing else out there that puts so much at your fingertips
 
What an amazing tool for pastors... thank you for your work.
 
Soli Deo Gloria!
 
AND THIS LATER COMMENT FROM DR. BAUCHAM:
 
I was in Zambia showing it to Conrad Mbewe (the Spurgeon of Africa) and he absolutely fell in love with it. I simply had to leave it there.
  
It is a valuable tool, and I meant everything I said about it.
 
All of our guys love it.
 
We'll probably start buying them for our interns and leadership/elder training students as well.
 
Soli Deo Gloria!"
 
Transcript for the video above:
 
Scott Brown: Hey Reg Barrow, this is Scott Brown. I'm doing a conference on the Baptist Confession of 1689, and just right after I gave my last message, this guy comes up to me, and he asks me a question about the Puritan Hard Drive. So, what did you ask? 
  
Tall Guy: Scott, this is a simple question: What do you think of the Puritan Hard Drive?
 
Scott Brown: I love it. You have to get it. It's the best thing. It's the best for the money you'll ever get anyplace for books.
 
Tall Guy: Okay. Here's a question, 'cause I've read a little bit about it. But tell me about the Search Engine. Is it, do you type in an author, do you type in a word, a topic, what do you do?
  
Scott Brown: Yes, yes, author, topic. It's so easy, it will take you to anything you want. It's absolutely phenomenal.
 
Tall Guy: Have you exhausted the resources?
 
Scott Brown: You cannot exhaust them. It's impossible. It's so vast. But I'm telling you, as far as a research tool, it's second to none. Unbelievable stuff. And the search, the search function is just beautiful.
 
Tall Guy: Alright, thank you.
  
Scott Brown: There you go.
  
  
"Pastor Scott Brown Recommends the Puritan Hard DriveStill Waters Revival Books has performed an astonishing feat in pulling together a massive collection of books and other resources.
 
Let me tell you how absolutely fantastic the Puritan Hard Drive really is.
  
This is a treasure trove for a local church pastor.
 
The search ability is beyond my expectation.
 
I was just on the island of Iona where Columba established a missionary outpost sending evangelists all over Britain.  Searching the hard drive for "Columba" added much to my understanding of this great leader through the eyes of Spurgeon and many others.
 
Thank you so much... for going to the trouble to make this available.
 
I am greatly improved by it and I anticipate the pace of worldwide reformation to be improved as well."
 
I blogged about it here:
 
Below is the blog post from the link above:
 
"On my way across the ocean to study the reformation with Doug Phillips, I did not have a suitcase of books as I usually do. I was lamenting that fact at the airline ticket counter and my daughter Claudia said to me, "Papa, close your eyes and step into the new world." Well, let me confess: on my computer I have approximately 13,000 puritan and reformed books which I have acquired through my son downloading ebooks and a gigantic collection put together by Reg Barrow from Still Waters Revival Books. I am now like Abdul Kassem Ismael, Grand Vizier of Persia who, in the tenth century, carried his library with him wherever he went. The 117,000 volumes were carried by 400 camels which were trained to walk in alphabetical order."
 
 
DR. STEVEN DILDAY REVIEWS AND RECOMMENDS THE PURITAN HARD DRIVE

Dr. Steven Dilday Reviews & Recommends the Puritan Hard Drive "For a number of years now, I have followed, and benefited from, the work of Still Waters Revival Books, particularly the Reformation and Puritan Bookshelf CD sets... and now the Puritan Hard Drive.

The Puritan Hard Drive is a remarkable accomplishment!

The common Christian can now have a world-class Presbyterian and Reformed library at his fingertips, for only pennies per volume.

I do not think that it is an exaggeration to say that the Puritan Hard Drive presents an historic and singular opportunity.

The works on the Puritan Hard Drive have been invaluable to me in sermon preparation and in improving personal and familial piety. If these had been the only blessings attached to the reading of these documents, the expense (even if it had been much greater) would have been justified; but there is more here.

In this present time, a great many Presbyterians (particularly in North America) have forgotten and implicitly (perhaps unwittingly) rejected their Presbyterian heritage. Strangely, Westminster confessing churches have rejected the theological distinctives of the Westminster Standards.

Although the Westminster Assembly produced a beautiful statement of soteriological Calvinism, the histories clearly demonstrate that soteriology was not the principle focus, nor chief interest, of the Assembly. The Westminster Assembly was primarily concerned with uniformity in worship (in accordance with the Regulative Principle), the form of church government (Presbyterianism jus divinum), and Church-State relations (the Establishment Principle). It is a sad irony that the great and distinctive attainments of the Westminster Assembly have been ignored and rejected by so many Westminster confessing churches.

However, we may yet entertain the hope that these great attainments are rejected largely because of ignorance. The best books on these subjects have not been readily available; but (thanks be to God) they are available again on the Puritan Hard Drive.

For anyone interested in recovering our Presbyterian and Reformed past, the Puritan Hard Drive is a must.

It is my hope and prayer that the Puritan Hard Drive will be used by God to bring to light the things that were hidden, to call to remembrance the things that were forgotten."
