BENEDICT XVI TEACHES THAT JEWS SHOULD NOT DENY THEIR FAITH
“Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger, Gospel, Catechesis, Catechism, 1995, p. 97: “…we have laid the foundations for the question of Israel and the Church, although to discuss them in detail would open a vast field, the elaboration of which would exceed the limits of this essay (not to mention the limits of catechetical teaching). Even less can we treat here the huge question of the common task of Jews and Christians in the contemporary world. Yet it seems to me that the core of this task appears through all that we have said and so suggests itself almost spontaneously: Jews and Christians should accept each other in deep, reciprocal reconciliation. They should not do so by prescinding from their faith, let alone denying it, but should act out of the depth of their faith itself. In their mutual reconciliation, they should become a force of peace for the world. Through their testimony to the one God, who will not be worshipped except in the unity of love for god and love for neighbor, they should open to him the door into the world. They should open to him this door so that his will may be done, so that it may be on earth ‘as it is in heaven’ – so that his ‘kingdom come’.” (Ignatius Press, 1997)
Benedict XVI tells us that Jews and Christians should not prescind from their faith, let alone deny it. To prescind from means to “cut off” or consider separately from. So, according to Benedict XVI, Jews should not “cut off” their faith or deny it. This means that Jews don’t have to reject their false faith and convert (which is a defined dogma). This is a major heresy. Benedict XVI rejects Jesus Christ, the dogma Outside the Church There is No Salvation and the entire Gospel. It is precisely why he is going to the Synagogue this summer to validate the Jewish religion, which also bears “testimony to the one God” according to the apostate Benedict XVI.
“Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger, Gospel, Catechesis, Catechism, 1995, p. 85: “Jews and Christians must bear witness to the one God, to the Creator of heaven and earth.”
Since they reject the Son, the Jews reject the Father. Hence, they do not bear a true witness to the one God, but a false witness. This statement by Benedict XVI is blasphemous and heretical.
