What Does Christianity Have To Do With Islam?

There is only obligation Christians have with Muslims  and it is specified in the Great Commission, Matthew 28:19-20
"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”
So, in view of Christ's commandment to his disciples, is the Pope's arrival in Cairo for the purpose of converting and baptizing the Mohammedans to Christianity?

I don't think so.
Pope Francis arrives in Cairo on Friday hoping to mend ties with Islamic religious leaders just as Egypt's ancient Christian community faces unprecedented pressure from Islamic State militants who have threatened to wipe it out.

In an address to the Egyptian people this week, Francis spoke of his hope that his visit would help bring peace and encourage dialogue and reconciliation with the Islamic world.

But it comes at a painful time for Egypt's Copts, the Middle East's largest Christian community, three weeks after Islamic State suicide bombers killed 45 people in twin church bombings.

Those attacks followed a cathedral bombing that killed 28 people in December and a spree of murders that has forced hundreds of Christians to flee North Sinai, where the group is most active.

The Muslims are simply being faithful to the commandments of their Prophet. Unfortunately the Pope doesn't understand that precept and just wants to make nicey-nice with these butchers. As a former Catholic, this really astounds me. But then again, the priesthood has decidedly been traveling in uncharted socialist waters for some time.

POPE FRANCIS says “there is no such thing as Muslim terrorism”

Francis isn't the first stupid Pontiff.

I have not liked this man from the beginning. I don't like speaking ill of a man of God, but I have never believed that he was.

Be safe and God bless.

LL - nor will he be the last, unless Christ returns.

Linda - I feel the same way. But this man influences many millions of people and he needs to keep his piehole shut.

LindaG said...

Amen to that, Sig. Totally agree.

This pope is not the bringer of light, but darkness. There are many that see the curent pope as a man far out of touch with the truths. It is terrible that he carries such wide influence.

Brig - many see the Pope as just another man while many see him as the Vicar of Christ whose papal bulls carry the same weight as Scripture. Those who hold the latter view are sadly mistaken.

I was brought up Roman Catholic and am now a Baptist. I hold to the inerrant truth of the Bible and if the Pope contests God's Word with those of his own mouth, he is in trouble. History is replete with the political and self centered actions of this position and Catholics, whom I love, must realize this. A Pope can be a good man, a very good man indeed, but he still needs the exact same salvation provided by Jesus' death and will be judged before the Throne as we all will be.
