‘Chrislam’--Saudis Underwrite Organization to Bring World’s Religions Under One Roof
by Moody Adams “Saudi Arabia is financing a new organization designed to bring all the world’s religions together, and it is catching on” says Rob Kerby, Senior Editor Beliefnet News.
“The organization hopes to prevent conflict through interfaith dialogue,” writes Spencer Kimball for the German news site Deutsche Welle. ”The foreign ministers of Austria, Saudi Arabia and Spain signed the founding treaty of a new international organization designed to foster dialogue between the world’s major religions. . .”
The organization has its seat in Vienna, Austria, with 12 representatives from the five largest religions: two Muslims (Sunni and Shiite), three Christians (Catholic, Anglican and Orthodox), a Buddhist, a Hindu and a Jew. They will have 100 representatives from the five religions plus other faiths.
This started with Saudi King Abdullah’s visit to Pope Benedict XVI. Then the idea for the center of a united religion came after the visit to the pope in 2007. Abdullah held an interfaith dialogue in Mecca in 2008 followed by meeting in Madrid with Jewish representation, and a Vienna’s Hofburg in 2009, where the concept of the organization was agreed upon.
Some Christians are attempting to be politically correct, saying we have to win the friendship of Muslims to win them to Christ. In the first place Bible preachers did not go around making friends but encouraging martyrdom by their confrontational approach.
The Bible predicts a one-world religion at the end of time.
The movement is spreading across America. It is also stirring a conflict between TV preacher Jack Van Impe and Rick Warren. Warren is accused of being a part of Islam because he signed a united faith decree by Duke University and spoke at a Muslim meeting. Warren denies being a part of Chrislam.
In an interview with Laura Haim on Canal Plus, a French television station, Mr. Obama noted that the United States also could be considered as “one of the largest Muslim countries in the world.” Obama said, “I think that the United States and the West generally have to educate ourselves more effectively on Islam.”
In compliance with the president’s request for us to provide education on Islam, here is a brief starter which shows 12 reason no sincere Christian can ever unite with Muslims:
1. Islam labels Christians as infidels: “Infidels now are they who say, “Verily God is the Messiah Ibn Maryam (son of Mary)” (Koran 5:17)!
2. Commands intolerance: “O Believers take not the Jews or Christians as friends” (Koran 5:51)
3. Says women are inferior to men: “Men are superior to women on account of the qualities with which God hath gifted the one above the other” (Koran 4:34).
4. Teaches slaves are a gift of God: “O Prophet! we allow thee thy wives whom thou hast dowered, and the slaves whom thy right hand possesseth out of the booty which God hath granted thee” (Koran 33:50). (the founder, Muhammad, had a black slave).
5. Instructs men to beat their wives with a scourge: “But chide those for whose refractoriness (rebellion) ye have cause to fear; remove them into beds apart, and scourge them” (Koran 4:34).
6. Approves adultery with married slaves: “Forbidden to you (for sex) also are married women, except those who are in your hands as slaves: This is the law of God for you” (Koran 4:24).
7. Commands making war with Christians and Jews: “Make war upon such of those to whom the Scriptures have been … The Jews say, “Ezra (Ozair) is a son of God”; and the Christians say, “The Messiah is a son of God.” Such the sayings in their mouths! They resemble the saying of the Infidels of old! God do battle with them! How are they misguided! They take their teachers, and their monks, and the Messiah, son of Mary, for Lords beside God, though bidden to worship one God only” (Koran 9:29, 30).
8. Approves lying: “Of a truth, they who advanced that lie were a large number of you; but regard it not as an evil to you. No, it is an advantage to you (Koran 24:11).
9. Orders terrorism: “Make ready then against them what force ye can, and strong squadrons whereby ye may strike terror into the enemy of God and your enemy” (Koran 8:60).
10. Demands beheadings of non-Muslims: “When ye encounter the infidels (unbelievers), strike off their heads till ye have made a great slaughter among them, and of the rest make fast the fetters” (Koran 47:4).
11. Orders homosexuals be executed: (Koran 4:16) If two men among you are guilty of lewdness, punish them both... (Koran 27:55) Would ye really approach men in your lusts rather than Women? Nay, ye are a people (grossly) ignorant!
"Homosexuality is illegal, those charged with love-making are given a choice of four death styles: being hanged, stoned, halved by a sword, or dropped from the highest perch.”
12. Dogs must all be killed: Narrated 'Abdullah bin 'Umar: Allah's Apostle ordered that the dogs should be killed” (From Bukhari Hadith Vol. 4, #540, order is also found in “From Muslim” #3814, #055, #3813, #3814, #5248). Islam teaches killing dogs because the angel Gabriel would not talk to Muhammad when a dog was present.
