Between the title of his article and the citations from the Bible, one is left with the impression Armstrong is suggesting that Scripture shows Christ embraced the concept of a schmorgasboard of religions to call and convert His own.
That would be the complete opposite of the lucid conclusions one comes to after reading the Bible.
Did St. Paul apply “Vatican II-like” approaches to evangelism, by making his message more accessible?
The guy crucified upside down?
Just a little reminder of what St. Paul was teaching when he was kibbitizing with the people he was trying to convert:
Neither fornicators, nor idolaters, nor adulterers, nor homosexuals, nor sodomites, nor thieves, nor covetous, nor drunkards, nor revilers, nor extortioners will inherit the kingdom of God.
Did Jesus deal kindly with the Samaritan woman at the well?
The woman He sat down with to persuade her to stop sleeping around?
Did St. Peter say that those of any nation could possibly attain acceptance with God and salvation?
Acts 10:34-35 Then Peter opened his mouth, and said, Of a truth I perceive that God is no respecter of persons:  But in every nation he that feareth him, and worketh righteousness, is accepted with him.
This comes across to me like an attempt to cherry-pick citations from Scripture to make the case that a schmorgasboard of religions are salvific. If so, the editors need to be a little more heavy-handed about errant theology being published at the National Catholic Register.
Yes, God Incarnated as a Jew to convert the Jews but spent His Life and every drop of His Blood leading them away from Judaism and into the New Covenant. The one and only religion belonging to God.
I received notification of the below comment at NCR. I'm betting it's a TTC reader!
The title of this article is "A Biblical Approach to Other Religions", yet
IT PROVIDES ABSOLUTELY NOTHING OF THE KIND, for the same reason that Matthew
21:31 does not provide "A Biblical Approach to Prostitution". Jesus was
accepting of prostitutes, but they had to leave their prostitution behind;
St. Paul was accepting of idol worshipers, but they likewise had to leave
their idolatry behind. The relationship of Christianity to, for example,
Islam, is the relationship between truth and error; that is an entirely
different thing than the relationship between a baptized Catholic and a
lifelong Muslim. You really, really, really need to keep straight the
difference between ideas and people.
