Some Christians Move Closer to Islamic Faith

Just because Muslims claim a link to Abraham doesn't mean followers of Christ can embrace Islam.

That's just stupid,

But as the push for "COEXIST" keeps moving around the the Christians cave in the face of Islam.  Muslims will never come in and bow before the cross and/or pray to Jesus the Son of God.....but certainly the "Christians" will start praying to Allah and start denying that Jesus was ever intolerant of other religions.

Christian clergy helped a Muslim mosque open in a Pentecostal church.

"It's open faith; we're brothers," Ali Mohammad, an organizer of the mosque, tells North Carolina's News & Observer.  

The Muslims are stripping the church of its Christian roots, including removing any crosses and handing them over to pastors in the area.

When they opened on Saturday, Christian clergy, including Pastor Jim Melnyk of St. Paul's Episcopal Church, participated in the ceremony. Other pastors from Methodist and Baptist congregations were also present.

"I see it as an important statement of community, that we take each other's faiths seriously," Melnyk says. "I want to acknowledge how important it is to build bridges in the community when we're living in a time that is so anxiety ridden and there's so much mistrust going on in the world around us. It's important when we can find common ground and share our community." 

But Melnyk's participation is not just a gesture of neighborly compassion.

"Christians, Jews and Muslims are all people of the book, and we all claim what the Hebrew Scriptures call the Abrahamic faith," Melnyk tells WND. "We call it the Old Testament, and Muslims also claim the Bible." 

He says he personally worshipped "Allah" during the service.

"Obviously I'm a Christian, and I would not live comfortably within the full teachings of Islam, but I can recognize where we share teachings, and recognize the call to treat one another mercifully, and as the one God treats us mercifully, and that translates equally into Christianity as well as it does Islam," Melnyk says.


Wait!!  If the Muslim say they are brothers of Christians....then why do they insist on stripping the crosses out of every church they rent?

Jesus warned that in the Last Days there would be false teachers everywhere.  He also warned that people would want to hear things that sounded pleasant to their ears....even if it wasn't the truth.

Certainly we are there.

If you are a Lutheran pastor and telling your congregants that "We don't know for sure if Jesus ever said, "I am the way, the truth and the life.  No man comes to the Father but through me.".....then you might be a false teacher and the sheep under you are probably in danger.

If you are a Methodist pastor and invited an Islamic Imam into your church to teach adult ed in hopes that your congregants would embrace Islam and realize that "all paths lead to god" are a false teacher and your sheep are certainly in danger.

If you are a Lutheran professor of Theology at a Lutheran college and you told your students that they should disregard Galatians 1 because Apostle Paul was clearly having a bad day when he wrote probably are a false teacher and your students are most likely in danger.

If you are a professor at a Lutheran College and you told your students they couldn't reference the Bible for a term paper because, "The Bible isn't a credible source".....then you also are a false teacher and you should ponder Jesus' words and realize he isn't talking about little kids, but about immature believers...regardless of their age.

Mark 9
“If anyone causes one of these little ones—those who believe in me—to stumble, it would be better for them if a large millstone were hung around their neck and they were thrown into the sea.

What's sad is that all 4 of those examples are real stories that I have either experienced or been told about by a close eyewitness.
