CRISLAM is NAZISIM!
Crislam is Spiritual treason!

Jack Van Impe exits TBN over Islam, apostate Rick Warren [/b]
GOOD FOR JACK!
All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness.
2 Timothy 3:16
(A leader, pastor) must hold firmly to the trustworthy message as it has been taught, so that he can encourage others by sound doctrine and refute those who oppose it.
For there are many rebellious people, mere talkers and deceivers, especially those of the circumcision group.
Rebuke them sharply!
Jack Van Impe exits TBN over Islam, apostate Rick Warren
June 16, 2011
Jack is far more right than wrong, but I dont agree with him on some things. He sure is RIGHT to oppose the Evil Rick Warren!
Impe exposed some celebrity ministers as the false teachers they ARE.
They are corrupting biblical teachings.
TBN would not allow his program to air.
So Jack Van Impe Ministries dropped plans to work with Trinity Broadcasting Network.
I dont agree with Jack Van Impe in everything but one thing we have in common we love the Lord. He understands and knows the Word of God and he can see the wolves disguised as sheeps amongst us, hats off to you for standing for the truth and exposing TBN as what TBN really is and one day God will reward you for your faithfulness. More Christians leaders need to stand up and tell the truth no matter the consequences.
Rick Warren has been getting incredibly less MSM airtime over the last couple of years, why? It looks like thanks to the internet, a growing number of blogs, web sites, et al exposing him has caused the word to get out pretty fast.
I mean it came to a point where he was making an MSM appearance(Larry King, Hannity, etc) almost every month, and would do specials on FOX around xmas time(he and Murdoch are close buddies). But now? Again, I think the word is getting out on him. Not just to Christians, but to "Republicans" and "conservatives" as well(sorry about the quotes, but the context here is that both political parties are one and the same).
For the most part, the GOP has the pro-Israel/anti-Muslim stance. And Warren happens to be PRO-MUSLIM. No wonder why even Rupert Murdoch seems to be getting pretty weary in giving him appearances on his FOX station.
Anyhow, it looks like Warren's clout is going down. His conference at Saddleback with Tony Blair a couple of months ago didn't get much MSM publicity. Ditto his re-release of PDL on e-book this year. If this is the case, then praise the Lord!
Churches promoting Islam - Spiritual treason!
June 2011 It's foolish to think that we're going to read something that originates with demons and read that in a Christian church.
The action amounts to spiritual treason
Dozens of churches, from Park Hill Congregational in Denver to Hillview United Methodist in Boise, Idaho, and First United Lutheran in San Francisco to St. Elizabeth's Episcopal Church in Honolulu,
are planning to send "a message both here at home and to the Arab and Muslim world about our respect for Islam" with a time to read the Quran during worship this Sunday.
It's not just wrong, but dangerous, according to Christian trends analysts.
The aim of the program, which is promoted by social activists behind the Faith Shared website, is to counter the message from Islamic activists who say opposition to their religion is the product of what they call a cottage industry of hate.
So the Interfaith Alliance and Human Rights First is calling on Christian clergy to read portions of the Quran during their services Sunday.
"Everlasting Hatred: The Roots of Jihad" – Hal Lindsey explains how 4,000-year-old struggle exploded on America's shores.
The readings, supporters say, will "counter the anti-Muslim bigotry and negative stereotypes that have erupted throughout the country in the past year and led to misconceptions, distrust and in some cases, violence."
Not so fast, says apprising.org religious trends analyst Ken Silva.
June 26, 2011 PASTORS HOST readings from satanic quran at 50 churches across 0bamika
Jesus said, Go ye into all the worlds and preach the gospel to every creature He That believeth and is baptized shall be saved;
but he that believeth not shall be damned.
He DID NOT tell us to teach the satanic Koran.
Faith coming by hearing, and hearing by the word of God.
Washington, D.C. – 'Christian' clergy at churches across the country will host readings from the Qur’an and other sacred religious texts as
they welcome their Muslim and Jewish colleagues on Sunday, June 26, 2011 for Faith Shared: Uniting in Prayer and Understanding.

While Terry Jones wanted to burn the Qur'an there are pastors that want to read the Qur'an in church to their congregations. In response to a local Qur'an burning, Larry Reimer, a minister of the United Church of Gainesville, decided to read Scripture from the Qur'an as part of worship services on September 12, 2010, prodded further about religious relatives. “Christianity, Judaism, and Islam are all part of the Abrahamic tree of faith. We all believe in the same God, and in many aspects we are all trying to accomplish the same goals.”
This GROWING TREND is a natural slide to the bottom for common ground to have a peaceful coexistence. There is a movement saying that other religions are as valid as “Christianity.” Unfortunately the way Christianity is practiced today, there may be some truth to this. But if one were to go by the Bible and live Christianity the way it was originally taught, it becomes as different as night and day (Christianity being the day.
Chrislam is an interfaith movement that is a dialogue with Islam - a syncretistic movement that speaks about “spirituality without boundaries.” These churches, softening John 14:6, are opening the door to allow the conversion of their people. Because to them it matters not what you are anymore. For the most part, the majority of these churches are already removed from the faith, so this is expected in the days we live in.
It was Robert Schuller, pastor of Crystal Cathedral, that began this process by housing the offices for "Christians and Muslims for Peace." Schuller had told an Imam of the Muslim American Society that "if he came back in 100 years and found his descendants Muslims, it wouldn't bother him...." (The Berean Call (April 1998), -What's Happening to the Faith? by Dave Hunt ). That should bother any authentic Christian, but not those who espouse the “new Christianity” of our modern times.
The assumption is that Christians and Muslims all worship the same God; they, along with the Jews, are all faiths from Abraham. This is something we have steadily warned about for years. When you see people make the name Allah acceptable, that it is suitable for a Christian to pray in his name because it is the same God, or that Muslim converts can continue to go into their Mosques and pray and worship as if nothing happened to them, this is leading Christians toward accepting the Qur’an as equal in inspiration as the Bible (both Old and New Testament) when it contradicts it more than it agrees.
Consider the story of Rev. Ann Holmes Redding, an Episcopal priest for about 21 years, who says, "I am both Muslim and Christian" On Sunday mornings, Redding puts on the white collar of an Episcopal priest. On Fridays, she ties on a black headscarf to pray with her Muslim group. She says both Islam and Christianity are compatible at the most basic level.
Are they? Can one be a Christian and a Muslim at the same time? Islam’s Jesus is not divine in the Qur’an; Jesus is not the only-begotten Son of God, nor the Messiah, God in human flesh; He did not die on the cross for our sins; He did not resurrect. Islam denies the gospel of Christianity – the core reason Jesus came to earth for. This is what these churches want to make peace with!
We have no commonality with Islam. The Bible says, “For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness. This movement is apostasy in action, and we can expect more of this type of compromise.
A few years ago, 138 Muslim scholars and clerics sent an open letter to leaders of Christian churches, titled “A Common Word Between Us and You.” Many of America's top Christian leaders and known scholars signed in support to find commonality between the religions, ignorant that it contained a rebuke and an Islamic warning.
Now we have Chrislam, which blends the minimalist parts of Christ with Islam, with the intention of making them as equal faiths. In some churches, the Qur’an is placed in the pews next to the Bible; all of this is promoted under “loving your neighbor,” which was part of this open letter that the unwary undiscerning Christians signed to have peace.
This is part of a Jihad: to expose those who normally would not be interested in the Islamic religion, (of course it will be all the peace quotes). Muslims certainly know how to take advantage of this new openness to convert the kafirs to Islam. Islam condemns the belief in the divinity of Jesus as shirk, so to an authentic Christian –born of the Sprit of God there is no debate in this matter.
But to others who name themselves as Christians but care little of Jesus as the truth, they want a peaceful coexistence with those that demean their religion.
The National Cathedral in Washington, D.C. along with 50 churches in 26 states have already joined the effort, As MORE THAN FIFTY CHURCHES AGREE TO HOLD QUR'AN READINGS “Faith Shared is a project of Interfaith Alliance and Human Rights First.”
My immediate reaction to the first line… is it faith SHARED?
Christian clergy at churches across the country hosted readings from the Qur’an and other sacred religious texts as they welcomed their Muslim and Jewish colleagues on Sunday, June 26, 2011. Their purpose was to counter the Anti-Muslim bigotry. On the website sponsoring this (faithshared.org): “Tensions around Islam in America have erupted throughout the country in the past year, leading to misconceptions, distrust and in some cases violence.”
I have to disagree with their premise. Bigotry is part of Islam, as they have no allowance for other religions, even those they call “people of the book.” Tensions and violence have come from Islam itself, not just in our country but all over the world. This becomes enigmatic when you are including the Jews of whom Islam has an open war with and the religious leaders in their most religious lands vow to eliminate. Are people deaf and blind to what is taking place? Leave it to those who accept everything to ignore the obvious. Liberal thinking rules over all logic and common sense.
So we need to ask: What would Jesus do? We know he NEVER once read or quoted from another religion of his day to promote his teaching. He instructed and rebuked when necessary those of his own religion that spoke incorrectly. Which certainly would be applicable in this case with those who profess to be his followers, who apply his name to themselves and call themselves a church.
Stahnke, director of policy and programs for Human Rights First, stated, “We want to send a message to the world,” he said, “that Americans do respect religious differences and reject religious bigotry and the demonization of Islam or any other religion.”
If I may make sense of his false argument by allowing reality to intrude … America has always allowed all kinds of religions to worship in our country, including Islam. It is the Islamic countries that do not allow the other religions to freely worship. They have no integration in their lands or culture, and they certainly do not allow any integration with their religion.
We have a conundrum; they are the ones who are intolerant; they have bigotry thriving; but it is implied that we are the bigots and haters because we quote their own sermons and measure their actions.
Are we to intentionally put aside hundreds of statements like this to show we are not bigots?
Narrated Abu Huraira: Allah ’s Apostle said, “I have been ordered to fight with the people till they say, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ and whoever says, ‘None has the right to be worshipped but Allah,’ his life and property will be saved by me except for Islamic law, and his accounts will be with Allah, (either to punish him or to forgive him.)” (Bukhari, Hadith, Vol. 4, Book 52, 196)
It’s not whether we respect them, but do they respect us, or others? Do we see Islam asking for rights of other religions in their own land? Of course not. In fact, in most Islamic countries other religions are OUTLAWED. Once they live by Sharia law it becomes difficult for them to allow anything that is contrary. Let’s not overlook the obvious, which would be the things right in front of your nose in plain view (called the news). Of all the compromises made these days, this has got to be the most asinine, irrational, and ignorant.
We have freedom to worship any way we want in America. Go try to have the same freedom, or promote your interfaith in one of the countries that have Islam as the state religion. This is why the whole matter is self-defeating and an exercise in futility.
The fact is, the only religion that is being used for violence is Islam, so we must ask why? Why are the majority of terrorists throughout the world Muslim? It’s because of the Qur’an, not their ethnicity; it is their religion that can affect their person and culture.
The idea of appeasement may exhibit tolerance to Islam, but it exhibits disloyalty to Christ. It is these people who call themselves a church that are not going to stand up against the tide of persecution. You can’t uphold what you don’t know. They will probably convert, since they are halfway there already. They are Christian in name only because they will not stand up for Christ or his gospel. This shows who the head of their church is. For the Lord is not consulted, they have abandoned the head of the body for spiritual correctness and the way of the world.
This supposedly includes reaching out to the Jews. They want to read from each other’s “sacred texts.” Do we expect the Hebrew or Christian Scripture to be read or spoken well in the Mosques? Is it too much to ask to see them do the same for Israel that they do for Islam and stand up for their right to exist and practice their religion not only in their homeland but in Muslim lands.
The Berean Call: Even Atheists on occasion recognize that the real threat to them is not biblical Christianity, but Islam. Consider the comments below, prompted by an article from the Religion News Service printed in the Salt Lake Tribune.
“More than 50 Churches Agree to Hold Koran Readings!!”
In the past I have stated I am not religious, but my goal is to help educate and unite Atheists and members of non-Islamic religions against a common enemy. That enemy is Islam. The good news is that our voice against Islam is clearly getting louder, the bad news is that far too many Americans who identify themselves as "Christians" are taking the easy way out and bowing down to Islam, in an effort to avoid a conflict that has been raging for 1400 years.
Muslim Hadith Book 019, Number 4366: "It has been narrated by 'Umar b. al-Khattib that he heard the Messenger of Allah (may peace be upon him) say: I will expel the Jews and Christians from the Arabian Peninsula and will not leave any but Muslim."
A conflict in which Christians are clearly losing!
[The author then quotes the article from the Salt Lake Tribune.] Pulpit pals: Christians, Jews, Muslims plan shared worship "Religious and human rights activists are asking U.S. churches to invite Jewish and Muslim clergy to their sanctuaries to read from sacred texts next month in an initiative designed to counter anti-Muslim bigotry.
The June 26 initiative, called "Faith Shared: Uniting in Prayer and Understanding," is co-sponsored by the Interfaith Alliance and Human Rights First. Leaders of the two Washington-based groups said the event hopes to demonstrate respect for Islam in the wake of Quran burnings in recent months….
(Adelle Banks, "Pulpit pals: Christians, Jews, Muslims plan shared worship," Religion News Service, May 17 2011).
There are some trying to respect a religion that considers itself superior to all religions and challenges the Bible on nearly everything it says, giving untrue alternate stories.
Agenzia Fides (the information service of the Pontifical Mission Societies) Continental News reports an increase in rape and forced marriage to convert to Islam of Christian and Hindu girls in Pakistan, a Muslim nation. This has been taking place at a larger scale in Africa. This is what Islam allows with Sharia law? We see no repercussions for this from Islam. Is this what they want us to respect?
Modern History of the Chrislam Movement
Nigeria, like many other African countries, has been experiencing increased violence between Muslims and Christians; the answer came religiously not politically.
The most popular Chrislam movement in Lagos, Nigeria at present is called Oke Tude: Mountain of Loosing Bondage. The older Chrislam movement is called Ifeoluwa: The Will of God Mission.
Oke Tude was founded in 1999 by a Muslim man calling himself Prophet Dr. Samsindeen Saka who was born in a Muslim family. He believed in Allah and went on a pilgrimage to Mecca four times. “During Saka’s second hajj in 1990, he received a divine call by Allah, telling him that he had to unite Christians and Muslims by enlightening them that they are serving the same God, but in different ways:
“The vision to bring mutual understanding between Muslims and Christians was revealed to me by Almighty God, when I rested near the Ka‘aba. In a dream God showed me pictures of religious intolerance in Nigeria, and He assigned me to bridge the misunderstanding between the two religions, to stop the killings. Initially, I didn’t understand the dream. On New Year’s Eve I called several Muslim scholars to my house. They prayed and afterwards fell asleep. It turned out that they all had the same dream: in their dream they saw me bringing together Christians and Muslims. This is how it started.” (Chrislam: Forging Ties in a Multi-Religious Society)
As far back as January 26, 2006, Christian Science Monitor did an article on this movement stating:
“Pastor Saka explains that his father was an herbalist and that both Muslims and Christians would come to him for healing. Although he grew up Muslim, and has been to Mecca on pilgrimage several times, he couldn't comprehend Nigeria's sectarian strife. He now considers himself a Christian, ‘but that doesn't mean Islam is bad.’ Quite the opposite. Next to his mosque is a televangelist's dream - an auditorium with 1,500 seats, banks of speakers, a live band, and klieg lights. On Sundays the choir switches easily between Muslim and Christian songs, and Pastor Saka preaches from both the Bible and the Koran. His sermons are often broadcast on local TV.” (In Africa, Islam and Christianity are growing - and blending)
Think about what is being said. That God (Allah) told him that he is the same God of both religions and to stop the killing (which was from the Muslims initially). This new revelation from a Muslim started this new synthetic blend that has become the answer for their conflicts.
This is what is being termed “Muslim-Christian coexistence” to accept the premise and practice of the coexistence movement you must depart from faith in Jesus Christ and what He said in the word of God. These religions are not to be united but to stay separated. Clearly, we have prior examples for us today: “They are turned back to the iniquities of their forefathers, which refused to hear my words; and they went after other gods to serve them”(Jeremiah 11:10). Islam believes Christianity has another God but will feign being of a kindred source when it is advantageous to them.
The Modern Chrislam movement in Lebanon
The main Chrislam organization on the web has a minimal amount of content. On its home page, it has a quote by Malcom X. This organization is more about dialogue and recognition of equality with the Abrahamic religions. But it does have some interesting points made in its agenda. We are told that “The members of the Committee are de facto members of the Arab Group for Islamic-Christian Dialogue, affiliated to the Middle East Council of Churches. Some are founding members of this Group.”
It appears there are two main people involved; Emir Hares Chakib Chehab and Mr. Mohammad As- Sammak. Emir Hares Chakib Chehab is the General Secretary of the Committee. Emeritus President of the Maronite League. Emeritus President of the Union of Christian Leagues in Lebanon. Maronite Syriac Church of Antioch is an Eastern Catholic Church in full communion with the Holy See of Rome.
Emirs Chehab, jurist and lawyer, is a consultant in the field of public relations and the owner of the Arab News Agency, which he founded after leaving his key position in the Ministry of Information.
According to the Maronite Syriac Church, they believe in the human nature of Jesus Christ and the reality of the incarnation of the Son of God for our Salvation; they hold to the divinity of Christ. So how this can be reconciled with Islam that calls this blasphemy is perplexing.
Mr. Mohammad As - Sammak is listed as no.101 on the common word website. Sammaka Political scientist - Secretary General of the Islamic Spiritual Summit in Lebanon member in the National Lebanese Unesco Committee, Editor in Chief of the review Al-Ijtihad and writes in several other newspapers. He represents Dar Al-Fatwa on the Committee, which is a Sunni council upholding Sharia law.
Dr. Jean Salmanian is the Chancellor of the Armenian Prelacy of Lebanon, representing the Armenian Orthodox Church.
Mr. Camille Menassa is Director of “L’Orient- le Jour,” newspaper and CEO of the publishing house “L’Orient-le Jour.” He is a professor at Saint-Joseph University, Vice-President of the Arab World Cultural Council. He represents the Greek Catholic Partriachate of Antioch and all the East.
Judge Abbas Selim El-Halabi- Jurist and judge as a background, he is member of the Permanent Secretariat of the Islamic Spiritual Summit and in charge of the key responsibilities in the Druze Community who appointed him as her representative to the Vatican Synod for Lebanon in 1995.
He represents the Druze House of the Community on the Committee
Mr. Michel Elias Abs is Professor at Saint-Joseph University of Beirut, he is the former Chairman of Department and Sociology and Anthropology. He is the former Director of the Lebanon Emergency and Development Program of the Middle East Council of Churches. He represents the Greek Orthodox Patriarchate of Antioch and all the East.
Dr. Ali El-Hassan is the founder of “The Lebanese- German Friendship Society" in Germany, the founder and chairman of "The Graduates of German Speaking Universities" in Lebanon, the Vice-President of the "5th of June society" and a Co-founder of "AMAL Organization,” Dr. El-Hassan was a close associate to Imam Moussa El-Sader in his various political and social endeavors. He represents the Chiite Islamic Supreme Council on the Committee.
See also: chrislam.org website : http://www.chrislam.org/actions.html
[Moussa El-Sader was a Lebanese Shiite religious and political leader who came from Iran to Lebanon. He founded the Amal Movement the “Brigades of the Lebanese Resistance,” the military wing of the movement of the Deprived, which fought alongside the Lebanese National Movement and the Palestinian Resistance.
Lebanon has a real potpourri of political parties at work. Progressive Socialist Party, Socialist Arab Union Lebanese Communist, Party Syrian Social Nationalist Party, Syrian Social Nationalist Party, Christian Democratic Party, Hezbolla, Islamic Gathering Movement, Islamic Jihad Movement, Union of Muslim Ulama, Free Patriotic Movement, Democratic Secular Party, Arab Democratic Party. Many other parties take part in politics and the landscape is constantly changing as new parties spring up and others become defunct.
On the Chrislam site: Under the link “actions” Islamic-Christian National Dialogue Committee- Unified Working Paper, The Islamic-Christian National Dialogue Committee
“On the basis of the fundamental principles on which the Lebanese are agreed, as enshrined in the Document of National Entente (1989), and which affirm the commitment to Lebanon as the definitive country of all its people in its internationally recognized borders, with its Arab identity and membership of the Arab world;
“As an ample human terrain for freedom and dialogue between the followers of the divinely revealed religions, a land of life shared in common between Christians and Muslims, in which the aspirations and goodwill of all Lebanese come together and interact to build their state and political entity on the basis of a free republican, parliamentary, democratic system, under the protection of complete equality in rights and duties between all the people of one single country;
A state committed to the principle of freedom of religion, thought and information, as well as economic freedom, without monopoly and anarchy.” (underline mine)
What they call Chrislamogy is coming from Lebanon. The Lebanese population consists of 28 percent Sunni Muslim, 28 percent Shi'a Muslim, 5 percent Druze, 22 percent Maronite Christian, 8 percent Greek Orthodox, and 4 percent Greek Catholic. There are also very small numbers of Jews, Bahai’s, and Hindus.
On the site: 4-Christian-Muslim Dialogue
“The coexistence between all denominations of Muslims and Christians is Lebanon’s greatest value. It is Lebanon’s mission to the world, in that it is a pattern of life, as well as a relationship of constant dialogue between the Christian and Islamic worlds, a link of continuity to enrich the values imprinted on human character by these two divinely revealed messages. To safeguard this formula of civilization and emphasize its credibility are therefore both a Lebanese and a human responsibility. However, since the struggle of power is usually exercised in a way that harms this formula, the establishment of a balanced political system constitutes a bulwark to protect this formula from any evil exploitation.
“National fraternization between Christians and Muslims in Lebanon is not merely a commitment dictated by the essentials of coexistence or a necessity for avoiding sectarian strife, but also a destiny, a choice, and a noble human task which makes Lebanon have a world mission. For this purpose, we have to work to unify national oratory so that it transcends sectarian selfishness, rising to openness and the interest of one country, for all denominations and all Lebanese.
“This requires the establishment of a just and conscious national state, which will open up horizons for emerging national forces to participate in creating a better tomorrow, reassure citizens and encourage them to shift from the shadow of the sect to the protection of the state which is responsible for their security and stability, and for providing them with the essential elements of a life of freedom and dignity.”
We need to pay attention to these next statements:
“These include the necessary guarantees of work, education, medical treatment and other social guarantees. The return of all displaced persons to their villages and houses, and a halt to the exploitation of their agonies and sufferings, are considered an essential basis for strengthening the credibility of the state as the protector of all citizens.” (underline mine)
The coexistence movement is not only interfaith but has strong elements of communism. Those involved in Chrislam make Lebanon sound like a prototype for a new world model.
These concepts are lofty goals under the heading of “moving forward” to forge unity. Yet we need to have a better name for Chrislam - maybe Islam-ity, as it is part of the Islamization of Christianity in America.
List of churches involved
ISLAM is spiritual TREASON!
EVANGELICAL CHURCHES PROMOTE ISLAM
EVANGELICAL is LIBERAL - NOT FUNDAMENTAL
GOD IS FUNDAMENTAL
Islam Becomes Favorite Evangelical Fetish
June, 2011 For at least the past six years now online apologetics and discernment ministries like Lighthouse Trails Research, as well as here at Apprising Ministries, have warning about the growing infestation within evangelicalism of critical thinking skills-numbing corrupt Contemplative Spirituality/Mysticism (CSM), such as that taught by Living Spiritual Teacher and Quaker mystic Richard Foster along with his spiritual twin and Southern Baptist minister Dallas Willard.
You may remember that none other than Emergent Church guru Brian McLaren told you they were “key mentors” of the Emerging Church. So what did you think these mentors were teaching the leaders within the sinfully ecumenical neo-liberal cult of the Emergent Church, who have now gone on to develop a quasi-universalism in their new version of Progressive Christian theology under their spiritual circus “big tent” Emergence Christianity?
This uber-inclusivism has led to increasing syncretism within the visible church and I’ve noted for you a marked rise in interest concerning the world religion of Islam as evidenced e.g. by Chrislam And The Gospel Of Islam. I also pointed out in Jim Wallis And Sojourners Making Muslim-Christians that the founder of Islam, Muhammad, was actually a false prophet who did not hear from the one true and living God of the Bible at all.
The fact is, Muhammad fails the test as a Biblical prophet when he calls us [to] go after other gods (cf. Deuteronomy 13:1-4) because the capricious, singular, Allah (cf. Surah 5:73) is most clearly not the loving and triune one true and living God of the Bible. In addition, the revelation Muhammad received—the Qu’ran—specifically denies the Deity of Christ; and God has told us:
By this you know the Spirit of God: every spirit that confesses that Jesus Christ has come in the flesh is from God, and every spirit that does not confess Jesus is not from God. This is the spirit of the antichrist, which you heard was coming and now is in the world already. (1 John 4:2-3)
My opening text makes it quite clear the Lord Himself has told us that, though they may indeed be very sincere, the faithful Muslim is not serving God, they are serving demons; as it is written — All worshipers of images are put to shame, who make their boast in worthless idols; worship him, all you gods! (Psalm 97:7) However, this hasn’t stopped spiritually obtuse professing Christian pastors for signing up with Faith Shared: Uniting in Prayer and Understanding coming up this Sunday.
In his World Net Daily report What would Jesus think? Churches now promote Islam today Michael Carl shares some quotes from an interview he conducted with me the other day on this ‘Spiritual treason’ seen as ‘something hostile to Jesus Christ himself.’ Pastor Carl tells us:
Dozens of churches, from Park Hill Congregational in Denver to Hillview United Methodist in Boise, Idaho, and First United Lutheran in San Francisco to St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church in Honolulu, are planning to send “a message both here at home and to the Arab and Muslim world about our respect for Islam” with a time to read the Quran during worship this Sunday.
It’s not just wrong, but dangerous, according to Christian trends analysts. The aim of the program, which is promoted by social activists behind the Faith Shared website, is to counter the message from Islamic activists who say opposition to their religion is the product of what they call a cottage industry of hate.
So the Interfaith Alliance and Human Rights First is calling on Christian clergy to read portions of the Quran during their services Sunday.
Carl then gives my take on this lunacy in the Lord’s Name:
Not so fast, says apprising.org religious trends analyst Ken Silva. “I would think they need to have their spiritual heads examined. It’s foolish to think that we’re going to read something that originates with demons and read that in a Christian church,” Silva said.
The action amounts to “spiritual treason,” he asserted. Pastors of participating churches declined to discuss their programs with WND. But Silva said, “Second Corinthians 6:14-18 (the verse warning against partnering light with darkness) says we’re forbidden to do that kind of thing.
It’s one thing to be friendly with someone in Islam, but it’s a whole other thing in a Christian community to be reading something that is antithetical to Christianity and is hostile to Jesus Christ himself.”… Silva believes the real reason for the Shared Faith event is spiritual emptiness in the country.
“So many Christians talk to each other and they read other Christians rather than read the Scriptures themselves. There’s a real move inside our country right now for an ecumenism and a syncretism trying to bring everyone together and it’s rooted in contemplative spirituality,” Silva observed.
“There’s a deception that comes. They’re under the impression that God is trying to bring all people together, and bring in God’s dream for the world to make the world a better place,” Silva continued.
“The Gospel has been changed from repentance and forgiveness of sins in Jesus’ name to God wants to make the world a better place, get involved with where He’s working and bring about His dream,” Silva added.
“It’s what Walter Martin would say spiritually obtuse Christians are easy marks for the more militant of the Muslims who are presenting this as some big Islamophobia,” Silva said.
“We are not hateful to Muslims, but we are hostile to Islam because it enslaves people. We want people to be free,” Silva said. (Online source)
If you’re interested in hearing more from me on this topic, Michael Carl was also kind enough to include a longer audio clip within Shocker! Churches promoting Islam as well. The bottom line is this: As CSM spreads as a cancer throughout the church visible its leading purveyors like the Emerging Church rock star pastor Rob Bell, co-teaching pastor at Mars Hill Bible Church along with his good friend and fellow mystic Shane Hipps, have been successful—particularly within the younger sectors of evangelicalism—in blowing up the pillar of sola Scriptura.
So now, right within mainstream of the visible Christian community, we’re being led by neo-Gnostics of The Emerging Church On A Wild Goose Chase after another Jesus than the one we’ve always proclaimed, and to receive a different spirit from the one we received, and to accept a different gospel from the one we’ve always accepted (cf. 2 Corinthians 11:4). And along with this, their mystic mush god with a man-shaped hole in his/her/it’s heart has issued a new command: “You shall shut off your mind and love mankind, whom you worship, with all of your heart and all of your true self and all of your strength in your nonduality.”
I personally would suspect that what is breaking our Lord’s heart right now would be, as the Gospel is being changed, we hear nary a peep from evangelical leaders in The New Downgrade With Its Apostles Of Unbelief.
Walter Martin is good. He wrote book on cults and how to identify them.
Satan keeps coming up with new cults.
Chrislam is one such evil and dangerous cult, blending Christianity with Islam by
removing the cross and all biblical references to Jesus being the son of GOD.
Christianity DOES NOT blend with Islam, which is satanism.
TomL - Yes, I saw that American churches are now reading from the Quran. The more I see of this nation, the more I am convinced there is very little true Christianity in America.
Islam Global Jihad on Christians
January 8, 2011 Worshippers targeted in Egypt, Iraq, Nigeria, Russia
After 911 President George W. Bush described Islam as a 'religion of peace', but that Religion of Peace website reports that for 2010 there were 1987 jihad attacks in 46 nations resulting in 9,175 deaths and 17,436 injured.
So analysts are expressing alarm that individual attacks on Christian churches are being replicated rapidly and appear to be reflecting Muslim Jihad war.
Attacks on Christians by Muslims from North Africa to the Middle East and Central Asia.
CHURCHILL on ISLAM
The speech below was written in 1899!
Winston Churchill speech delivered by him in 1899 when he was a young soldier and journalist.
Churchill was a brave young soldier, a brilliant journalist, an extraordinary politician and statesman, a great war leader and Prime Minister, to whom the Western world must be forever in his debt.
He was a prophet in his own time; He died on 24 January 1965, at the grand old age of 90 and, after a lifetime of service to his country, was accorded a State funeral.
HERE IS THE SPEECH:
"How dreadful are the curses which Mohammedanism lays on its votaries! Besides the fanatical frenzy, which is as dangerous in a man as hydrophobia in a dog, there is this fearful fatalistic apathy. The effects are apparent in many countries, improvident habits, slovenly systems of agriculture, sluggish methods of commerce, and insecurity of property exist wherever the followers of the Prophet rule or live.
A degraded sensualism deprives this life of its grace and refinement, the next of its dignity and sanctity. The fact that in Mohammedan law every woman must belong to some man as his absolute property, either as a child, a wife, or a concubine, must delay the final extinction of slavery until the faith of Islam has ceased to be a great power among men.
Individual Muslims may show splendid qualities, but the influence of the religion paralyses the social development of those who follow it.
No stronger retrograde force exists in the world. Far from being moribund, Mohammedanism is a militant and proselytizing faith. It has already spread throughout Central Africa, raising fearless warriors at every step; and were it not that Christianity is sheltered in the strong arms of science, the science against which it had vainly struggled, the civilization of modern Europe might fall, as fell the civilization of ancient Rome."
Sir Winston Churchill in 1899

Judge paves way for leaving evil Islam
Stops city authority from censoring ads offering ex-Muslims help
A federal judge in Michigan has ordered a Detroit-area transportation authority to allow display of paid advertisements on buses that offer help for those wanting to leave Islam.

Chrislam Starts To Spread In America
False Profit Rick Warren leads to HELLFIRE!
You knew this day was going to come, when the liberal “love gospel” preachers who, desiring to fill their seats and bank accounts, would find a way to merge apostate christianity with the Devil’s religion of Islam. That day is here.
And unto the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write; These things saith the Amen, the faithful and true witness, the beginning of the creation of God; I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.” Revelation 3:14-16
Rick Warren with his new best friend, Christ rejector Cat Stevens, who changed his name to Yusef Isalm
Just recently, Rick Warren, founder and pastor of Saddleback Community Church in Orange County California, addressed the convention of the Islamic Society of North America. Warren stated that Muslims and Christians must work together to combat stereotypes, promote peace and freedom, and solve global problems. Christians and Moslems – faith mates, soul mates and now work mates! Chrislam!
Quote of the Day: “Before we “shake your hand” in responding to your letter, we ask forgiveness of the All-Merciful One and of the Muslim community around the world.” – Rick Warren in a speech to Muslims.
This weekend, the Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church in Houston along with Christian communities in Atlanta, Seattle, and Detroit will initiate a series of sermons that have been designed to produce an ecumenical reconciliation between Christianity and Islam. In addition to the sermons, the Sunday school lessons will center on the inspired teachings of the Prophet Mohammad. Qurans will be placed in the pews next to the Bibles. (NOTE: Due to the overwhelming response that this article has generated, the Pastor of Memorial Church has issued a semi-denial of the events we reported. They do not, however, deny supporting and teaching a doctrine called “Jesus in the Koran. Click here to read their semi-denial. So until other information is made available to NTEB, we will run the story as is, along with their side, and you the reader can decide what’s going on.
Wis. Islamic School to Continue Using Presbyterian Church
A Wisconsin-based Islamic elementary school has been given approval to continue to use a Presbyterian church until the end of the current academic year.
Madinah Academy of Madison, Wis., has been using the facility of Westminster Presbyterian Church during the week since September when a fire destroyed their facility.
The Rev. Alex Thornburg of Westminster explained to The Christian Post that he learned of the Madinah Academy’s need for a facility through a local rabbi.
Upon learning of the academy’s need, Westminster voted to approve Madinah’s usage of the church facility until the fall and then recently voted to allow their use to extend until June.
“I think the first and primary thought was to offer in the Name of Christ hospitality. This is the spirit in which it was offered,” said Thornburg.
Thornburg said he believed a possible influence on the decision of Westminster leadership was a fire that damaged their sanctuary back in the 1960s.
New Bible yanks Father, Jesus as Son of God
In the world of questionable and sometimes downright silly Bible translations, one would think that it couldn’t get any worse.
After all, we’ve seen the “In da beginnin’ Big Daddy created da heaven an’ da earth” Ebonics Bible, as well as the “Apostle’s Log” Star Trek English paraphrase Bible. In a more serious effort, the New Oxford Annotated Bible was created in part by pro-”gay” and feminist scholars in order to set forth a more “gay” revisionist interpretation of Scripture.
But now there is a major controversy developing as the latest altered Bibles are being created by organizations that most would think of as being more conservative and reasonable. At the forefront of the controversy are the Wycliffe Bible Translators, the Summer Institute of Linguistics and Frontiers, all of which are producing Bible translations that remove or modify terms which they have deemed offensive to Muslims.
That’s right: Muslim-friendly unholy Bibles
Included in the controversial development is the removal of any references to God as “Father,” to Jesus as the “Son” or “the Son of God.” One example of such a change can be seen in an Arabic version of the Gospel of Matthew produced and promoted by Frontiers and SIL. It changes Matthew 28:19 from this:
“baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit”
Rick Warren's Tower of Babel
Joel Richardson sees nothing of Great Commission in pastor's latest efforts.
An article in the Orange County Register reports that Rick Warren, the man dubbed “America’s Pastor,” has launched a new program called “King’s Way,” the purpose of which is to promote peace and unity between Muslims and Christians.
As part of their effort to promote their mutual goals, Warren’s pastoral staff and local Muslim leaders have co-authored a document outlining the points of agreement between Muslims and Christians. It affirms that both Muslims and Christians together believe in “one God” and share the “love of God” and “love of neighbor.”
The document also include a mutual commitment to three goals:
Making friends with one another, building peace and working on shared social service projects.
The document quotes verses from the Bible and the Quran side-by-side as the authoritative basis to support its goals.
According to Abraham Meulenberg, a Saddleback pastor, and Jihad Turk, director of religious affairs at a Los Angeles mosque, King’s Way represents opening “a path to end the 1,400 years of misunderstanding between Muslims and Christians.”
But beyond this, according to Turk, both groups also agreed not to evangelize each other.
When Apostasy Runs Amok
March 1, 2012 By Jan Markell olivetreeviews.org (edited)
The seeker-sensitive purpose driven heresy.
I started hearing about wreckage, congregations were caving to all things unscriptural.
Members were told that the ends justified the means. (communism)
So, I began to watch Rick Warren more carefully. When he praised the freedom in Syria in 2006, I just shuddered.
When he spoke to the Muslim Brotherhood Islamic Society and withheld the gospel, I reacted again.
When he told Alan Colmes to "give Jesus a try for 60 days," I came close to writing him off.
When Rick began featuring occultic "New Agers" in his church sanctuary in January 2011,
I further realized that "America's Pastor" wasn't as sound as he had been portrayed.
Rick allowed a year-long effort at fitness to headquarter out of Saddleback Church and concluded the event by cheering that Saddleback members lost 250,000 pounds.
Rick, some souls might have been lost during that time because Drs. Amen, Hymen and Oz represent the dark side of the world, not the light of Jesus.
These men are secularists. At one time, Dr. Oz even had a link on his Web site that took you to a place where you could learn how to talk to the dead.
Now Warren wants to 'heal divisions' between Christians and Muslims by partnering with Southern California mosques.
He is proposing theological principles that include acknowledging Christians and Muslims worship the same God.
Christ (who?) at the Checkpoint
March 22, 2012 by Jerusalem Connection
Christ at the Checkpoint conference in Bethlehem rebukes Israel, demands empathy for Islamist terrorists.
This gathering was teaching from the pit of HELL itself, and
promoted the thinking which caused the holocaust and present day killing of Jews and attacks on Israel.
What partnership have righteousness and lawlessness, or what fellowship has light with darkness?
2 Corinthians 6:14
Rick Warren, Islam and Christianity
Rick Warren blasphemously claims Christians and Muslims worship the same God.
The entire Warrenism crap is lies and deception.
As a Christian I love the Lord. We love others.
Muslims fear their devil god and must kill their neighbors.
Christianity is Light and freedom, tho not freedom to sin.
Islam is Darkness and bondage.
Warranites have a document outlining points of agreement between Islam and Christianity.
One point agrees we wont try to evangelize each other.
VIOLATES CHRIST's COMMAND! GO TELL!
Christians have a fundamentally different view of God than Muslims. We worship Jesus as God. Muslims dont.
Muslims not only have a fundamentally different view of God - they have a different god.
Christians need to wake up to the fact that according to the Qur'an and Hadith, Islam teaches that Christianity is corrupt and must be eliminated.

DECEPTION OF CHRISLAM
March 14, 2012 Bob Glaze Guest Eric Barger
The religion of Islam permeates the entire Arab world, which believes their Mahdi will come very soon and kill everyone in the world who is not a Muslim. Now, Christian pastors across our nation are promoting unification with Islam under the delusion that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. Eric Barger exposes and challenges this dangerous apostasy.

'Chrislam' Movement Misguiding Former Muslims?
March 30, 2012 Satellite television, radio broadcasts, and the Internet present expanding opportunities for Muslims to hear the Gospel.
But how welcoming are churches in Islamic nations to Muslims seeking to know more about Christ?
And what happens when former Muslims start their own fellowships?
"There is so much risk. There is so much danger," Todd Nettleton, director of media development for Voice of the Martyrs, told CBN News.
