Many Religions – One Covenant by “Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger, 1998 (Ignatius Press, 1999)
It is interesting to note that Scott Hahn wrote the preface for this heretical book.
BENEDICT XVI AGAIN TEACHES THAT JEWS SHOULD NOT DENY THEIR FAITH
On pages 45-46 of Many Religions – One Covenant, Benedict XVI teaches the exact same heresy that he taught on page 97 of Gospel, Catechesis, Catechism:
“Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger, Many Religions – One Covenant, 1998, pp. 45-46: “…Jews and Christians should accept each other in profound inner reconciliation, neither in disregard of their faith nor in denying it, but out of the depth of faith itself. In their mutual reconciliation they should become a force for peace and for the world. Through their testimony to the one God, who cannot be adored apart from the unity of love of God and neighbor, they should open the door into the world for this God so that his will may be done and so that it may become on earth ‘as it is in heaven’: so that his ‘kingdom come’.”
BENEDICT XVI TEACHES THAT RELIGIONS COULD PERHAPS UNITE!
“Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger, Many Religions – One Covenant, 1998, p. 109: “Let me speak plainly: Anyone who expects the dialogue between religions to result in their unification is bound for disappointment. This is hardly possible within our historical time, and perhaps it is not even desirable.”
He is saying that it may be desirable for the one true religion to unite with false religions of the devil! This is total apostasy.
OTHER QUOTES OF INTEREST IN MANY RELIGIONS – ONE COVENANT
“Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger, Many Religions – One Covenant, 1998, p. 111: “We may find it relatively easy to criticize the religion of others, but we must be ready to accept criticism of ourselves and of our own religion.”
“Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger, Many Religions – One Covenant, 1998, p. 67: “The rediscovery of Pauline theology at the Reformation laid special emphasis on this point: not works, but faith; not man’s achievement, but the free bestowal of God’s goodness.”
He is saying that the Protestant revolutionaries who abused Catholic doctrine and perverted the teaching of St. Paul actually rediscovered Pauline theology. This is simply heresy and a mockery of St. Paul.
“Cardinal” Joseph Ratzinger, Many Religions – One Covenant, 1998, pp. 101-102: “Often this pluralism of paths cannot be resolved, and if the wearying rational debate is cut short by a religiously motivated moralism that declares one path to be the only right one, religion is perverted into an ideological dictatorship, with a totalitarian passion that does not build peace but destroys it.”
