Reports are circulating that Pope Benedict XVI, currently in the Middle East to promote peace, has promised to cease all Roman Catholic missions activities among the Jewish people. If not merely a misunderstanding of his efforts to promote peace and understanding between Christians and Jews (which it may well be), it is a promise which certainly should give one pause. If, as Jesus says, “I am the Way and the Truth and the Life. No man comes to the Father but by me,” then, shouldn’t missions to non-Christians remain of the utmost importance? If this is intended as an effort to improve inter-religious dialogue, it goes too far. If we are to truly converse with others, we must never lose our own voice. We are Christians and so we must remain ‘apologetically’ (strongly defending our position) and ‘unapologetically’ (without feeling shame for it). It may be politically incorrect, but it’s biblically right.
