Often, modern Evangelicals are uninformed about what Roman Catholics believe. They frequently react to a Rome that hasn't existed for centuries or which they read about as existing in the Reformation. But Rome has changed and adjusted. Though there are still many doctrinal issues that still separate (and should separate) Protestants and Catholics, we are moving closer to one another.
I found these quotes from Benedict VXI's recent encyclical interesting:
We have seen that God's eros for man is also totally agape. This is not only because it is bestowed in a completely gratuitous manner, without any previous merit, but also because it is love which forgives.
God's passionate love for his people—for humanity—is at the same time a forgiving love. It is so great that it turns God against himself, his love against his justice. Here Christians can see a dim prefigurement of the mystery of the Cross: so great is God's love for man that by becoming man he follows him even into death, and so reconciles justice and love.
