Yesterday, at the meeting with various religious groups, Pope Francis, (if the translation is accurate) expressed a desire for peaceful co-exsistence among religions. Since “co-exsistence” is my most hated bumpersticker, this has been worrying me ever since I read it. No one seems to have noticed it either. Did you? I value you opinion on this.
What’s wrong with seeking peaceful co-existence? Jesus says, “Blessed are the peacemakers.” Paul says, “If possible, so far as it depends upon you, live peaceably with all” (Romans 12:18).My advice: Don’t measure the Church with a bumper sticker.
