Rome’s ecumenism can be see in the following article by Georgetown University:
Responding to our Jesuit university’s more than 200 year history of embracing religious diversity, the Georgetown University Interfaith Council attempts to foster an environment of inter-religious dialogue and understanding on campus. Ideally comprised of undergraduates representing Sikh, Jewish, Catholic, Hindu, Protestant, Orthodox Christian, Muslim, Buddhist, Mormon, Baha’i, and non-religious traditions, we recognize the power of interfaith cooperation in bringing about social peace and justice for all humankind. Looking to cultivate our own faith lives and support the spiritual journeys of other Hoyas, we recognize that dialogue not only allows us to learn about others’ beliefs, but also offers us an opportunity to enrich our own faith.
Pope Paul VI’s, 1964, declaration of the church’s relation to non-Christian religions is a formal call to ecumenism for the purpose of social justice, moral welfare, peace, and freedom for all mankind.
Acknowledging all faiths as valid for knowing God:
From ancient times down to the present, there is found among various peoples a certain perception of that hidden power which hovers over the course of things and over the events of human history; at times some indeed have come to the recognition of a Supreme Being, or even of a Father. This perception and recognition penetrates their lives with a profound religious sense.
Places its own religion as the supreme religion of the world:
The Catholic Church rejects nothing that is true and holy in these religions. She regards with sincere reverence those ways of conduct and of life, those precepts and teachings which, though differing in many aspects from the ones she holds and sets forth, nonetheless often reflect a ray of that Truth which enlightens all men. Indeed, she proclaims, and ever must proclaim Christ “the way, the truth, and the life” (John 14:6), in whom men may find the fullness of religious life, in whom God has reconciled all things to Himself.(4)
Heralds Social gospel, and world peace:
Since in the course of centuries not a few quarrels and hostilities have arisen between Christians and Moslems, this sacred synod urges all to forget the past and to work sincerely for mutual understanding and to preserve as well as to promote together for the benefit of all mankind social justice and moral welfare, as well as peace and freedom.
Global, interfaith, peace summits, such as the following, have become common place in the U.N.’s, synthetic, coexistence initiative.
Global Peace Festival Foundation –
Global Peace Festival Indonesian Foundation (GPFF) and Indonesia Youth Forum (IYF) will share a new view of interfaith cooperation, calling on religious leaders to move beyond mere tolerance by affirming the universal principles common to all faiths. Our vision of interfaith cooperation begins from the recognition that all people are endowed by the Creator with equal value and therefore share a common spiritual heritage. This is the original source of human rights and human dignity. Because all people have intrinsic value, we aspire to realize a global community of equality and respect.
In addition, building a culture of service has been an effective methodology of peacebuilding. In conflict regions such as Kenya, Nepal, and Mindanao, service initiatives engage volunteers from all racial and religious backgrounds to forge bonds of trust and good will. Through service, volunteers gain insight into the realities of life of those traditionally seen as “enemies” or the “other,” and in the process often experience personal transformation. In addition, service initiatives are important to further the realization of the UN Millennium Development Goals intended to uplift the world’s most at-risk populations.
Pastor Rick Warren, who is a self-proclaimed “change agent” to the church, is known for preaching the gospel of globalization, through humanitarianism and philanthropy by promoting partnership with all religious leaders and businessmen, throughout the world, for the purpose of world peace.
The is not the peace that God has sent his world into the world for.
9 I pray for them: I pray not for the world, but for them which thou hast given me; for they are thine.
10 And all mine are thine, and thine are mine; and I am glorified in them.
11 And now I am no more in the world, but these are in the world, and I come to thee. Holy Father, keep through thine own name those whom thou hast given me, that they may be one, as we are.
1 I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord, beseech you that ye walk worthy of the vocation wherewith ye are called,
2 With all lowliness and meekness, with longsuffering, forbearing one another in love;
3 Endeavouring to keep the unity of the Spirit in the bond of peace.
4 There is one body, and one Spirit, even as ye are called in one hope of your calling;
5 One Lord, one faith, one baptism,
6 One God and Father of all, who is above all, and through all, and in you all.
It is an abomination to the Lord, because the religions of the world are not true, but are lies, and lies are an abomination to the Lord.
22 Lying lips are abomination to the LORD: but they that deal truly are his delight.
8 The sacrifice of the wicked is an abomination to the LORD: but the prayer of the upright is his delight.
Furthermore, the religions of this world are under the authority of Satan, who is called “the fathers of lies”.
44 Ye are of your father the devil, and the lusts of your father ye will do. He was a murderer from the beginning, and abode not in the truth, because there is no truth in him. When he speaketh a lie, he speaketh of his own: for he is a liar, and the father of it.
19 What say I then? that the idol is any thing, or that which is offered in sacrifice to idols is any thing?
20 But I say, that the things which the Gentiles sacrifice, they sacrifice to devils, and not to God: and I would not that ye should have fellowship with devils.
21 Ye cannot drink the cup of the Lord, and the cup of devils: ye cannot be partakers of the Lord’s table, and of the table of devils.
22 Do we provoke the Lord to jealousy? are we stronger than he?
To join with Satan for peace will only bring sudden destruction, from which there will be no escape.
1 Thessalonians 5
1 But of the times and the seasons, brethren, ye have no need that I write unto you.
2 For yourselves know perfectly that the day of the Lord so cometh as a thief in the night.
3 For when they shall say, Peace and safety; then sudden destruction cometh upon them, as travail upon a woman with child; and they shall not escape.
