“We are spiritually very close to you, dear Friends,” and “asking God to give you renewed spiritual energy”.
This was the message from Cardinal Jean-Louis Tauran, head of the Pontifical Council for Inter-religious Dialogue.
In his message he urged Catholics and Muslims to strengthen their families and pass on moral values to their children. This was a Vatican promoted message for the upcoming end of Ramadan.
Cardinal Tauran concluded his letter by saying that the Catholic community is “spiritually very close to you, dear Friends,” and “asking God to give you renewed spiritual energy” as “we send you our very best wishes for peace and happiness.”
That Catholics and Islam are spiritually very close, we do not have to dispute. They both serve “god”, but this “god” is not God of the Bible.
God the Son, Jesus of the Bible, is not spiritually close to Muslims. Simply because Islam do not teach that God has a Son equal to Him self.
Without a surrender to this Biblical truth, you will not be given the Holy Spirit. And if you have not submitted to Jesus as the king of Kings, you will die in your sins.
The eternal destiny for Catholics and Muslims will not be the Kingdom of Heaven. They will have to spend eternity with their “god”, who unfortunately for them is the “god” of this world: Satan.
