Issue with Evangelii Gaudium
#8
I guess I can understand how it can be interpreted to not be heresy, but wow is it made to sound just like it. It makes it sound as though Jews can be saved through their religion, even though this would mean a denial of Jesus and engaging in Pharasaic practices. I know that it did't explain much about this, but a cursory reading of the text makes it sound as though modern Jews can be saved through their religion. Really, it seems like it should read that their covenant was fulfilled in Jesus, and that our origins in authentic Judaism cannot be ignored. But wow, the document is totally blind to the fact that modern Judaism is not the same Judaism of Jesus and that denial of Jesus is denial of God. This ecumenical tip-toeing is doing no one any favors. It scandalizes the faithful and it deludes non-Catholics.
