Benedict XVI’s has decided to meet his former students for a discussion about ecumenical relations, especially Catholic relations with Anglicans and Lutherans.
This event demonstrates the importance he gives to the search for Christian unity, Cardinal Christoph Schönborn of Vienna has said.
The Pope’s former doctoral students will base their discussions on retired German Cardinal Walter Kasper’s book, Harvesting the Fruits, a comparative collection of the agreements reached in theological dialogues with the Anglicans, Lutherans, Methodists and Reformed communities since Vatican II.
As Pope Benedict has taught, the theological discussions with other Christians must be “a dialogue in truth and charity”, the cardinal said, and one that “does not conceal the drama of division among Christians in Europe and, as a consequence, all over the world”.

All the Church reformers belled the Pope as an antichrist. Therefore it is a spiritual crime to accept the Pope as a Christian leader. The Pontiff can not be both an antichrist and a Christian.
2 John 1:7
Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist.
The Lutheran Church will eventually be lead into renouncing the wisdom of the Reformation, and accept that Martin Luther was an heretic. Todays Lutheran Bishop represent an apostate and corrupt Church. These Bishops are no longer disciples of Jesus the Messiah, but has walked away from faith. If they do not repent, they will face eternal condemnation for their betrayal of the Word of God.
