Alert - June 19, 2009
shouldn't shock us but this Sunday the
Indianapolis Star will run a
feature story reporting that Rick
Warren (author of
The Purpose Driven
Life and Pastor of Saddleback Church
in southern. California) is going to be a featured speaker at the annual
The Islamic Society of North America, July 3-6 in Washington, DC.
Warren's picture currently appears on the groups website. (Click
here for story.) I do
wonder what sort of Purpose Driven church, er, ah, make that mosque
growth tips Warren will share with the conference participants? Is peace
at any cost worth it Rick?
be in some very dubious company in Washington. Another speaker at the
conference will be Dr. Dr. Muzammil Husain Siddiqi, the Director of the
Islamic Society of Orange County (California), and former Director of
Islamic Affairs for the Muslim World League Office in New York.
probably seen Dr. Siddiqi before since he was chosen to address the
world during the National Day of Prayer and Remembrance service held at
the National Cathedral in Washington, DC just three days after the 9/11
attacks on Sept. 14, 2001.
As our nation mourned that day, he began with the standard Muslim
greeting "May the peace of Allah be upon America." What most American's
didn't know then and still don't know now is that in Islamic beliefs
every person is either a member of the "house of peace" (Muslim) or a
member of the "house of war" (non-Muslim). In Muslim-speak this means,
"you will only be at peace when you convert to Islam - otherwise you are
Previously, in October 2000, Dr. Siddiqi protested outside the White
House. In his speech he said "The United States is directly and
indirectly responsible for the plight of the Palestinian people. If you
remain on the side of injustice the wrath of God will come." He then
affirmed his support for the terrorist organizations Hamas and
Earlier in 2001 Dr. Siddiqi also led a flag burning in Los Angeles where
he spat on and cursed the American flag. This is the crowd Rick Warren
is now friendly with???
Siddiqi has publically affirmed
Qur'an sura 5:36 applies to any who are "mischief makers” - that is, any
who attack or cause trouble against Islam. Here are the chilling words
of sura 5:36 which demands swift "justice" against those who oppose
Muhammad and Islam:
The punishment of those Who wage war
against God And His Apostle, and strive With might and main For mischief
through the land Is: execution, or crucifixion, Or the cutting off of
hands And feet from opposite sides, Or exile from the land.
I guess Warren figures he's safe.
facts and so much more that I have written about previously outlines why
efforts such as the ongoing dialog coming out of Yale Divinity school to
establish common ground with Islam are foolhardy at best.
paper signers Rick Warren, Robert Schuller, Bill Hybels, Leith Anderson,
Jim Wallis, Brian McLaren, Richard Mouw and others have ignored the
absolute fact that
Islam and Christianity do not worship
the same God. Thus any common ground they may seem to find with Muslim
is based on the false and dangerous assumption that Allah and Jehovah
are one in the same. I have outlined this clearly in
Their god is NOT
our God! and
I Can't Sign the Letter.
Muslims will eternally perish without Jesus
Christ. Rather than trying to see how much we have in common with them,
concerned Believers might better spend their time pointing out the stark
difference between Islam and Christianity - the resurrected
Jesus Christ, who is calling Muslims to
exchange worthless religious bondage for true peace and everlasting joy.

Today, in an effort to
redefine Christianity, alarming numbers of popular yet apostate
“evangelical” leaders known as “The Emerging Church Movement” are abandoning
historic and biblical standards.
This unscriptural, even deadly movement is part of the predicted “great
falling away” of 2 Thessalonians 2:3 as Emergent leaders now proclaim that
the Church has failed in its mission, that doctrine is irrelevant and that
the very basis of Christian thinking has always been faulty. In this seminar
Eric defines Emergent thinking and terms, concisely exposes the practical
and doctrinal errors of the Emergents and draws the striking parallels to
New Age thought.
