"Catholics and Jews are brothers and sisters deeply bound by their fervent belief in the one Creator of heaven and earth"  Written by Rabbi Dr. Eugene Korn and Rabbi Dr. Shlomo Riskin,  published in the Jerusalem Post.

"The reconciliation of the RCC with the Jewish people is one of God’s great blessings, one that inspires all people around the world. If the Church and the Jewish people can make peace with each other after nearly 2,000 of enmity, then peace is possible between any two peoples anywhere."

If Jews and Catholics are joining as brothers and sisters in this common bond should we not include Muslims, Mormons, Jehovah Witness and all other religions that believe in the one Creator of heaven and earth?

Unity, tolerance, acceptance of our differences, diversification, everything but Jesus is not based on truth.

Jesus said, "I AM the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me." John 14:6

Outside of faith in Jesus of Nazareth, The Christ, The Son of the Living God all religions are founded on a lie. Outside of His blood cleansing us from our sins, we are hopeless and stand condemned, our good works as filthy rags. Outside of accepting His gift of Salvation we will be judged by The Law instead of being accepted as His child, covered by His mercy and His grace.

"The Spirit clearly says that in later times some will abandon the faith and follow deceiving spirits and things taught by demons. Such teachings come through hypocritical liars, whose consciences have been seared as with a hot iron. They forbid people to marry and order them to abstain from certain foods, which God created to be received with thanksgiving by those who believe and who know the truth..."  1 Timothy 4:1-3

Outside of His sacrificial death in our place, we will face the wrath of God.
