Inclusivism – Mother Theresa

March 5, 2009

In her book A Simple Path, Mother Teresa explained why she did not “preach religion” to those in her care. In a section entitled “Equal Before God” she writes: There is only one God and He is God to all; therefore it is important that everyone is seen as equal before God. I’ve always said we should help a Hindu become a better Hindu, a
Muslim become a better Muslim, a Catholic become a
better Catholic. Consequently, Mother Teresa never considered it a problem when people of different religions joined together in prayer at
her center and read from their own scriptures, since her focus
was to encourage them in their “relationship with God, however
that may be.” STR
