When it comes to your views on Judaism, Christians are caught between a rock and hard place. Is Christ the only way to heaven? Or is God's covenant with the Jews enough to ensure members of this ancient tribe a place in God's kingdom? Increasingly, Christians are saying, "It is enough."
The Second Vatican Council (1962-65) adopted new language concerning the Jews, promptede in part by the horrors of World War 11, And the Protestant World Council of Churches meeting in 1948,likewise offended by Adolf Hitler's Third Reich, denounced anti-Semitism as "sin against God and man" and,in 1968 published a statement calling for "rethinking the place of Jews in the history of salvation." Missionary witness(proselytizing) was replaced with ecumenical engagement (interfaith dialogue) through the World Council, like the Vatican, retained the idea that ultimate salvation is achieved only through Christ. Perhaps at the Second Comming, Protestants held, Jews would see the light and become one in the body of Christendom.
Progress,right? If Christ, whose earthly sojourn fulfilled God's covenant, is the true way to heaven, then how can Judaism remain a relevant and legitiment faith? And if Judaism does remain a relevant faith in the eyes of God, what does that say about the central Christian doctrine of salvation? I would say it's time to accept Christianity despite all the suffering it caused during the course of two millenna. Christians have made a historic step toward reconciliation. At least to some degree. And since salvation is open to all, it must be made concretely available to all, even to those who do not have the to come to know or accept the Gospil.
But the way of salvation always passes through Christ. For Jew's, it is the Torah that represents the world of God. For the Christians, no man can come to the father except through His son, Jesus Christ. Without revelation, there can no religions and the voice of God will be heard by different people at different times in different ways and one hearing need not cancel out the others.Salvation through Jesus Christ is not optional, it is the only way.
Interfaith dialogue is a valuable way to engender mutual respect.
If we view our religious community
as having the "only" single truth, then of course, you cannot welcome the others points of view.
Interfaith dialogue is the way to engender mutual respect.
Oh, yes, thank you for viewing my poetry.I will continue to try harder.
