June 27 - "Oprah's New Age Religion" and "God, Give Us Godly Leaders"
Once again, let me repeat: Islam's Allah is
NOT Jehovah God!
The march toward Global Religion starts with us?
Many readers may remember my article "I
Can't Sign the Letter" which detailed a document produced by the
Yale Divinity School and signed by many prominent "Evangelicals"
entitled, “Loving God and Neighbor Together: A Christian Response to a
Common Word Between us and You.” This ill-fated document was the attempt by
what I would like to think are but some well-meaning but misguided Christians to respond to the call by 138
Muslim clerics to find common ground between the two religions.
hopeful as an end to the many centuries of conflict between Christianity
and Islam may sound to the unaware, the proposal is based on the
incorrect premise that Allah and Jehovah are one in the same. I have
been responding to this notion that Islam's god is one and the same with
the God of the Bible for several years before the Yale
document was produced. Each time I address Islam in my seminar series I
drive home the point that Allah could not be Jehovah - whether you are
coming from the standpoint of orthodox Christianity or Islam. The facts
on this are also laid out in my video/DVD presentation "The Truth About Islam"
and can be found condensed in the article here online
"Their god is NOT Our God." (I encourage you to read both "I
Can't Sign the Letter" and "Their
god is NOT Our God.") I am writing not to simply rehash past
events here though. It is clear that the whole concept of
Christian-Muslim reconciliation has taken an even more dangerous, even
As part of the continued effort by the Yale Divinity
School's "Reconciliation Program," the university recently hosted an event called
God and Neighbor in Word and Deed: Implications for Christians and
Muslims." This was the first in the series of conferences
slated for this year in the US, Britain and at the Vatican in Rome. The July
meeting at Yale featured none other
than Senator John Kerry as the keynote speaker. That strikes me as off
the wall at best but Kerry's participation in the event though strange
wasn't near as troubling as the continued capitulation by Christian
leaders concerning Christian doctrine and historical truth.
The Yale University Office of Public Affairs released this statement on
June 15: "A watershed in Muslim-Christian relations, this
interfaith meeting was organized by Yale Divinity School’s Center for
Faith & Culture under the leadership of its founder and director, Miroslav Volf,
together with the director of the Center’s Reconciliation Program,
Joseph Cumming. Volf will co-teach a course on faith and globalization
at Yale this fall with former British Prime Minister Tony Blair."
Did you catch that? Volf and Blair are going to teach a
faith and globalization. Allow me to
translate. This means "all religions must agree as one so the One-Worlders can
proceed with the New World Order." I believe that what Satan may be
doing here is to try and breakdown the standards held by the two
religions most apt to reject and oppose Antichrist when he comes. What
better way than to start plowing up ground in an effort to get Christians to accept
Islam - even if the Muslims silently reject the idea all along?
Muslim clerics know that from Muhammad's time until today Islam has always
viewed each and every non-Muslim as "infidels" and members
of the "House of War." It is, in Muslim tradition and doctrine, perfectly
acceptable to deceive any and all infidels (non-Muslims) if
it is for the furtherance of Islam. So, if a movement -
suggested by Muslims - causes Christians, including those claiming to be
"Evangelicals" such as Dr. Leith Anderson, Dr. Rick Warren and
those who gullibly follow their ministries to accept Islam, its
teachings, its culture, and most of all, its god then the obstacles for Antichrist are
greatly depleted. In the near term, the instant result is that Islam is furthered and
the cause of Christianity is the big loser. But as much as this is
indeed for Antichrist's
system to be working in the confines and cover of "unity" and "peace," the
concern of this article is once again the premise that those at
Yale are basing their very discussion on. Doesn't anybody up there get
it? Their god is NOT our God!
Nevertheless, in the meeting at Yale (which concluded on
July 31) was the aforementioned National Association of Evangelicals
President, Leith Anderson, Robert Schuller
and other high profile Christians who, under the supervision and
leadership of the Yale Divinity School's "Reconciliation Program"
Joseph Cumming, met with Muslim
clerics and in the end declared among other things that Christian should spend one week a
year declaring and celebrating the good point of Islam! Excuse
me...what good points? If their god (Allah) is not our God
(Jehovah) and their
religion (Islam) is worthless to save a sinner from eternal hell then what is
there to discuss let alone extol?
We all want peace but if achieving it compromises
biblical truth it is spiritual treason and that is exactly
what I contend the signers of the first Yale document in November 2007
and last week's meeting are guilty of. These "evangelicals" are playing
right into Satan's hand for they seek reconciliation with Muslims without
biblical truth as their guide. This can only advance the cause of Islam and confuse and
misinform countless Christians who are on the periphery. Unless talk about reconciliation and common
ground centers around the Cross of Jesus Christ then there simply cannot be any
agreement. That is not pretty...its not very tactful... its
offensive to some who do not faithfully hold to the Holy Bible and its
not what Satan wants but it is
true. I encourage every one reading this to reject this silly and
dangerous notion and to get this document and both "I
Can't Sign the Letter" and "Their
god is NOT Our God" into the hands of every pastor and church leader
possible. I can just about guarantee that the National Association of
Evangelicals, Rick Warren, Schuller and others are going to distribute
and fund the dissemination of information to the contrary.
These are troubled times and with
"Evangelicals" becoming more accepting of universalistic ideas we can
simply expect the dividing line separating those who seek and follow
God's changeless truth and those who are only pretenders to become more
and more pronounced and also more of a battle zone. We need to fast and
pray for some of the high profile professed Christians to come to their
senses and realize
that their unbiblical ideas are dangerous lest we all awake to the Muslim call to prayer being broadcast five times each day from
speakers atop buildings which once served as local churches across
My friend and co-laborer in defending the faith, Jan
Markell said it well: "...the Muslims are laughing all the way to
Jan's commentary here)
Below are a few pictures portraying suggesting the
response to Muslim
"compromise" and "reconciliation" in London.
Remember: Yale's compromise doesn't weaken their message - just ours -
while souls perish without Jesus.
