    Comparing the Samaritans with another "bible" believing group I can understand.

    But would Jesus have prayed with prophets of Baal for world peace? Yeah, WWJD? LOL.

    Or would Paul have held a joint church service together with the worshippers of Aphrodite? Paul did go to Athens and debate with the Greeks but I doubt he would have had a prayer and sing a long time with the worshippers of Diana or Apollo etc..

    Really, :)

    the catholic religion is becoming part of the one religion movement
    and this is a big sign of that commitment.

    should elijah have prayed with the idoloters of israel's queen jezabel? just think of the witness. not to mention, he would not have had to run away from the queen who was out to kill him.
    the pope is going directly against what God wants. that is to convert the masses, not join them.

    AND.....praying for world peace? As I recall, things do NOT get better until the time that our Father has appointed. To pray for something that goes against the will of the Father is pointless. To have the Pope and all of the other "religions" praying for peace is, to me, just another display of the disregard of our Father's will. Doesn't the Pope read Revelation? Or is he not allowed?

    the pope doesn't read the bible or he would not be doing what he is doing or he doesn't believe what the bible says

    Absolutely correct, in every detail. Utterly infallible and undoubtably inerrant.

    In the face of such incisive insight, I have no choice but to concede. As Pontius Pilate said, I wash my hands of the matter.

    Believe whatever you like. You will anyway.

    Praying for World Peace?

    Oh, my YES. How HORRIBLE!! If we had WORLD PEACE, perhaps all the industries geared towards war could be utilized for agriculture, so starving people could think about something else besides dying.


    Peace (that HORRIBLE thing, Peace!) be with you,

    Yes, its a waste of time. Other 'religions' praying is doing absolutely nothing, since their 'god' doesnt exist!


    No?

    The Pope is right!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    I am Christian as is the Pope. I know that the Spirit of Christ is within our souls. It is the Holy Spirit that will lead the prayers. It cannot be wrong.

    1 Timothy 2:1 I urge, then, first of all, that requests, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for everyone-- 2 for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness. 3This is good, and pleases God our Savior, 4 who wants all men to be saved and to come to a knowledge of the truth. 5 For there is one God and one mediator between God and men, the man Christ Jesus,


    But do I believe that World Peace will result? I pray I am wrong ... but No.

    Isaiah 57: 21"There is no peace," says my God, "for the wicked."

    In this day the only peace we will find is Spiritual Peace. If you have not already, I plead with you... seek out the Lord and find true peace.

    Micah 5: 4 He will stand and shepherd his flock
    in the strength of the LORD,
    in the majesty of the name of the LORD his God.
    And they will live securely, for then his greatness
    will reach to the ends of the earth.
    5 And he will be their peace.

    :) LOVE

    Good for him. I hope he is praying to the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob.

    Praying for things that are against the will of the Father are pointless and totally disregards God's will. Let's see...

    Mark 14:
    34"My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death," he said to them. "Stay here and keep watch."

    35Going a little farther, he fell to the ground and prayed that if possible the hour might pass from him.

    36"Abba, Father," he said, "everything is possible for you. Take this cup from me. Yet not what I will, but what you will."


    Praying for the unlikely isn't evil. It's human and fully trusting in the Will of God that it could come to pass, if only He willed it so.
