The Pope goes to a mosque and prays. Islam rejects the very foundation of Christianity -- Jesus the Christ. They reject the Holy Spirit (unforgivable sin territory). Is that how Christians should show "love, joy, peace, etc." Is that how we should "build believers up?" Is the head of the largest Christian denomination in the world subject to "evil words and gossip" because he prayed in the temple of a false god?braveshawn said:Altough I believe that the pope does not need to apologize for his remarks, is ripping him apart like this really what a christian does. How does this help further God's kingdom.
Im not catholic, in fact, there is a lot about the catholic church i believe goes against scripture. But we are to build fellow believers up, not tear them down with evil words and gossip. 1Thessalonians 5:11
The fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
"By their fruit you will recognize them."
Exodus 20:2-6 "I am the LORD thy God, which have brought thee out of the land of Egypt, out of the house of bondage. Thou shalt have no other gods before me. Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven image, or any likeness of any thing that is in heaven above, or that is in the earth beneath, or that is in the water under the earth: Thou shalt not bow down thyself to them, nor serve them: for I the LORD thy God am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers upon the children unto the third and fourth generation of them that hate me; And shewing mercy unto thousands of them that love me, and keep my commandments."
Deuteronomy 6:13-15 "Thou shalt fear the LORD thy God, and serve him, and shalt swear by his name. Ye shall not go after other gods, of the gods of the people which are round about you; (For the LORD thy God is a jealous God among you) lest the anger of the LORD thy God be kindled against thee, and destroy thee from off the face of the earth.
Luke 4:6-8 "And the devil said unto him, All this power will I give thee, and the glory of them: for that is delivered unto me; and to whomsoever I will I give it. If thou therefore wilt worship me, all shall be thine. And Jesus answered and said unto him, [jesus]Get thee behind me, Satan: for it is written, Thou shalt worship the Lord thy God, and him only shalt thou serve[/jesus]."
