On Coexisting With People of Other Religions (St. Nikolai Velimirovich)

By St. Nikolai Velimirovich

We all want God to give unity of faith to the world. But you are confusing things.

The reconciliation of people is one thing, while the reconciliation of religions is another. Christianity requires all of us to love everyone with all our hearts, whatever faith they may have.

At the same time we are ordered to keep our faith and doctrines intact. As Christians you must be merciful to the whole world, to all people. Even your life you should give on their behalf.

But you have no right to touch the truths of Christ. Because they are not yours. The faith of Christ is not our property to do with it as we wish.
