German Bishop: Contradicting Religions Lead To God [Or Rather to the Devil]

Second Vatican Council opened the Church up to the "modern world," Essen Bishop Franz-Josef Overbeck, Germany, declaimed in an April 12 talk in Berlin. Overbeck did not explain what "modern world" is.

Part of the Church's opening was, so Overbeck, accepting the theory that "other religions also lead to God."

This implies that Overbeck's "god" leads people through falsehood and contradiction. This "god" is commonly called "the devil."

According to katholisch.de, Overbeck also attacked the Society of St Pius X because it does not accept approaches of "religious freedom" and "human rights."

However, "religious freedom" and "human rights" are catchphrases used to trick the opponent because they only apply to the powerful, not to religious people or to normal humans.

What about what Jesus say ,that He is the Way the Truth and Life ,no one goes to the Father except by Him ?did these priests forget about it ?
One mose thing. Of course, Christianity is not the result of a natural tendency un man. It's grace. But grace, coming from God, doesn't nulify nature, but heals it, perfects it and raises it. Christ is THE WAY, the only name by which se can be saved, but he assumed our nature
Well, Saint Paul, Saint Thomas and The book of Wisdom say that God can be known by natural reason. But Saint Thomas also says that some atributes of God only can be known by Revelation, like the Trinity. Finally, truth is the adequatio intellectus ad rem, so, any judgement of the intellect which conforms to the aspect of the reallity it is refered to is truthfull. So if anybody says any truth …More
Well, Saint Paul, Saint Thomas and The book of Wisdom say that God can be known by natural reason. But Saint Thomas also says that some atributes of God only can be known by Revelation, like the Trinity. Finally, truth is the adequatio intellectus ad rem, so, any judgement of the intellect which conforms to the aspect of the reallity it is refered to is truthfull. So if anybody says any truth it can be fruitful for a Christian and for anybody else, for that matter. That"s why Saint Thomas takes any truth no matter who uttered it; that's why he quotes Aristotle, Plato, Porfiry, the Corpus Iuris Civilis, Plotinus, Pseudo Dennis, Averroes, Avicena, Maimonides, I mean, even people who hated Christ, pagans, muslims, jews, atheists. If a system of beliefs contains truths, of course it can help you find the true God. When you say it can't, you only undermine the Faith. Contradictions are about the same aspect, at the same time, of a given substance, in temporal realities; or about the same aspect, without temporal considerations, in timeless issues. The Christian Faith isn't lutheranism, it's not truth that reason is the prostitute of the devil; it's not humeanism, it's not the slave of the passions. Atheists are NOT right when they say believing in God is irrational. Maybe, because of our weaknesses, our ignorance, the feebleness of our intellect and the tendency to disorder of our passions, the devil can desfile the natural tendency of men towards God. But that doesn't mean we don't have, ALL OF US, that tendency. And that tendency is a powerfull witness against atheism. Don"t pee against the wind, don't spit upwards... Criticize what deserve criticism, but that means a little of wisdom, PLEASE!!!!!

Of course He is, He says so, because it is true. But that doesn't mean that, when anybody else says, for example, "God exists and He is one", that this isn't true, just because the one saying it is not a Christian. The only true religion is Christianity, that is: the only one which saves and sets a real relationship between man and God. But the other systems of belief are valuable in as much as …More

But the other systems of belief are valuable in as much as they provide some truths for the peoples... The problem is the rest, that is: the errors, lies, pervertions, mixed with those truths. We don't have that, because of the assistance of the Holy Spirit. Your question is good and fair, thank you...
