Worthy Christian News » Vatican Partners with Islamic Museum in Historic First

BERLIN, GERMANY (Worthy News)– In a historic first, the Vatican partnered with the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization to present "so that you may know each other." The "exhibition is one-of-a-kind — not only because it presents excellent artwork, but also because it furthers dialogue between Christians and Muslims," Deutsche Welle reported.

Ulrike al-Khamis has outdone herself. In a project that began six years ago, the art historian from Germany was tasked with bringing the extensive collections of the Emir of Sharjah into shape when the Sharjah Museum of Islamic Civilization was renovated and re-opened. The exhibition she is now presenting in a sparkling domed building almost the size of a soccer field has exceeded expectations.

"It is the first collaboration of the Vatican with an Arab country," said al-Khamis. Indeed, the exhibition is one-of-a-kind – not only because it presents excellent artworks but also because it furthers dialogue between Christians and Muslims. — Source

    1 Corinthians 10:21 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. The Vatican who has misled, and continues to mislead people, driving them away from Christ and the truth, rather than driving people to the Father through Christ Jesus and his teachings, are responsible for making their converts twofold the children of hell than they as Roman Catholics are themselves (Matthew 23:15), because they cease not to pervert the right ways of our Lord (Acts 13:10). With their promotion of worshiping saints and praying to Mary (idolatry); and with their most obvious but less argued disobedience of the Lord's commandment to call no man on earth your father, for we have one Father, who is in heaven, yet the first thing they require you to do is call a priest father rather than brother when it was Christ Jesus himself that referred to his followers as the brethren; also with their accumulation of earthly wealth, and the fact that they do not give it to the poor following our Lord Jesus Christ's example, which he made so that we may know his grace, that, though he was rich, yet for our sakes he became poor, that we through his poverty might be rich (2 Corinthians 8:9), but yet the Pope was calling for other nations to redistribute their wealth so that the poor can have more of the wealth of those nations, but didn't bother to be the first to do it so that the example could have been made by him, and the Vatican, that then may have led others to perhaps follow his example and do the same; and the list of their perversions of our Lord's right ways goes on and on, from infant baptism to transubstantiation, to the most absurd claim that the pope has made when he said, "good atheists can get into heaven," contradicting that which our Lord Jesus Christ said that he, the Son, is the only way to the Father (John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.), and by denying this fact, the pope along with the Catholic church, are calling Jesus a liar! Not directly of course, because the devil works through his subtle and mischievous ways, as it is written in Acts 13:10 And said, O full of all subtilty and all mischief, thou child of the devil, thou enemy of all righteousness, wilt thou not cease to pervert the right ways of the Lord?

    Poppycock Brian Otero! Even Saint Paul in the Bible says, "I am your father in Christ"! What do you call your own father or teacher??? For all generations will call Her Blessed (Luke 1:28,48). Mary’s well known appearances pass the test of spirits (1 John 4:2-4) (2 John 4-11). Mary proclaims Jesus, God Manifest to mankind in the flesh, crucified and died for our sins, bodily resurrected and ascended into Heaven! By their fruits you will know them (Matthew 7:20). Mary has brought millions to Jesus! Fatima Portugal, Guadalupe Mexico, Lourdes France, Medjugorji, Bosnia Herzegovina etc! Also Jesus warned, "A House Divided Cannot Stand," when they accused Him of Evil (Matthew 12:25-32) (Even Abraham Lincoln picked up on this scripture during the Civil War). It should be Abundantly Obvious that Anti-Catholic, Anti-Mary Sentiment is just plain wrong scripturally. Through two humans Adam & Eve, sin came into the world. So it is obvious that through two humans, Jesus being fully Human and fully Divine, God overcame sin. Mary did have an important role in this since she said "Fiat" to the Angel, "Let It Be Done" And thereby participated in Redemption. While Jesus brought Redemption, Mary did an "assist" and is Co-redemptrix! This ONLY means Mary had a unique participation in salvation, but has clearly never meant "goddess" since the Church knows there is an infinite difference between the Divine Jesus and Human Mary. The wedding feast at Cana (John 2:4-5) is a great indicator of the powerful intercessory ability Mary has with Jesus. Even though Jesus said to Mary, "My Hour has not come yet." Mary still said, "Do what ever Jesus tells you." And Jesus performed his first miracle changing water into wine!!! God created Adam and Eve without sin. So God could do this again and did when Mary was conceived just as promised in Genesis 3:15. Clearly here in Genesis, God Promises, Immediately, at the very fall of mankind into sin (sin is saying no to God), that He would create a Woman (second Eve), which will have no original sin (Puts enmity between Satan and the Woman) and that He would send Jesus (The second Adam and Savior of the World) to Conquer Sin and Death. The "Woman" is Mary. That is why Jesus refers to Mary so much as "Woman". Even from the Cross Jesus said "Woman" (John 19:26)! Jesus could never have been born of a sinful woman. Common sense dictates this is impossible! Mary was Assumed into Heaven (Raptured), just like Enoch (Genesis 5:24) and Elijah (2 Kings 2:11). This is also very obvious to me since Mary’s Womb was the Temple of the Baby Jesus, God Manifest to Man. So naturally Mary’s Body would never see corruption. Even the Body of Moses (Jude 9) was fought for by the Archangel Michael (Apocryphal Assumption of Moses) (Deuteronomy 34:6) Moses was at the Transfiguration (Mat 17:3). There are hundreds of known saints who’s bodies are incorrupt ( see incorruptbodies.html). These bodies have not been preserved in any way, yet smell like flowers and have no rigor mortis but are soft to the touch. The scriptures say sin reaps corruption while those in Christ Jesus will reap incorruptibility. Did you know Jesus changed Simon’s name to Peter (Petros=rock) "And on this rock I will build my Church" (Mat 16:18). Did you know it is a historical, archeological scientific fact Peter is buried under St. Peter’s Basilica at the Vatican, the largest structural and membership church in the entire world. Jesus said also here in Matthew 16:13-19, "I will give you the keys to the Kingdom of Heaven". The words of Jesus are very literal and profound with deep meaning! The teaching for confession is also profound and found in John Chapter 20. Here Jesus breaths on the Apostles, "Wwhhaaaa", Jesus says to the Apostles, "Receive the Holy Spirit. Those Sins you Forgive, they are taken away, Remitted." This is the first time the Holy Spirit was given to the Church, even before Pentecost! Thus the Catholic Church has the Sacrament of Confession. So that when the people confess their sins and accept Jesus’ Death upon the Cross as Payment for their Sins and Believe Jesus is Raised from the Dead, they will be Saved. The sixth chapter of the Gospel of John is equally extremely powerful. Read it! Thus we have communion, another Sacrament (realprescence.org). Is it a coincidence that a verse "666" also only appears here (John 6:66)? "Many Disciples left Jesus and no longer went with Him." Unlike John 3:3 where Jesus explains to Nicodemus what he means by being "Born Again", (That He does not mean a fleshly birth but a spiritual birth), there is no such clarification in the sixth chapter of John. 1 Cor 11:28-30 also backs this up! "Also the ritual of Passover is foreshadowing of this Statement. The Jews at Passover partake of the Lamb Sacrifice. Jesus came as "The Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world." (John 1:29-36) "Like a Lamb to the Slaughter." (Isaiah 53:7).v Many throughout history have accused the entire church of being evil. Jesus said this verbal attack would happen much more to His Church than it did to Him (Mat 17:3). I am hard pressed to find any trace of evil in the Doctrine of my Catholic Faith. I will say this however, when the Rapture occurs, the true Christians within the Catholic Church, just like any other Denomination, will be gone, caught up to meet the Lord in the Air (1 Thessalonians 4:17). After the Rapture there could be counterfeit doctrines emanating out of Church structures, since Jesus promises explicitly to be with His Church Always and the Church is gone to Heaven after meeting up with "Christ in the Air!" Remember in World War II, Hitler had written plans to kill Pope Pius XII and replace him with his own puppet pope. So yes, after the Rapture all bets are off. Antichrist elements could possibly at that time occupy vacated structures such as the Vatican. Evil has always tried to attack the Catholic Church, but Jesus has promised in Matthew 16:18 that "The Gates of Hell will Not Prevail Against It!" An example of this evil in our modern day would be the sin of sexual abuse, which the entire church is horribly shocked and saddened by. This is the cancer of sin, which pervades all of society and will be eradicated soon when Jesus comes to Rule and Reign. Until then each member of the church must work our their own salvation in fear and trembling, for the rapture is very near and to miss it means staying here through 7 years of the most terrible judgment the world has ever experienced!
