The church is not charged with bringing peace...only Christ can do that. Jesus said we will always have war and the poor. We are charged as the
church to know God, Love God and serve God and in doing so love our neighbor.
Peace will only come after the final judgment. The church (Catholic means Universal) is for everyone and only seeks to help bring each and every
person who chooses to believe to salvation. I am appalled by the crass assumptions and allegations in this thread...judge not lest you be judged. I
have no problem when you choose for yourself to believe these lies...but when you spread them I find it heartbreaking. The article in the original
post (if you read the whole thing) even explains how the diplomatic efforts of both parties seem to truly be thoughtful and beneficial to our world.
Really the Vatican was promoting an end to human trafficking, end to the war in Iraq, and end to the death penalty. Noble. shame on all who posted
here for trying to turn the virtuous life work of so many people who dedicate their lives to making the world a better place into something sinister.
-Did Christ not charge Peter with the task of building his Church and spreading the word? Peace and Love
-To serve God as stated in the Bible is a charge, task, duty or whatever you wish to call it.
-Does the peace that will come only in final judgement mean that one should not spread peace in the meantime?
-Is not calling the words of another a lie, a judgement?
-Has God not directed humanity to resort to war to win the cause?
-Did Jesus or God ever state there would be a righteous and pure organization of any sort established?
Please read over your tag at the bottom. How is one to truly know who knows and who knows not?
