by Moody Adams Leaders of the "emergent church" movement within evangelical Christianity are "observing" the Muslim month of Ramadan, writes the author of the bestselling new book, "The Islamic Antichrist."
"This year, a group of "Emergent Christians," led by one of the United States' most influential pastors, Brian McLaren have announced they will actually be 'observing' the Muslim holy month, along with a Muslim 'partner,'" writes Joel Richardson in a WND commentary today. "Ramadan is the month that Muslims thank Allah, their god, for revealing the Quran to Muhammad, their prophet. On McLaren's personal blog, he recently announced his intentions: 'We, as Christians, humbly seek to join Muslims in this observance of Ramadan as a God-honoring expression of peace, fellowship, and neighborliness'" reports WorldNetDaily.
“Peace, fellowship, and neighborliness!” Well they are celebrating the coming of the Koran which opposes all three of these.
1. Neighborliness. Friendship with Jews and Christians is not allowed by the Koran, 5:51: “O Believers take not the Jews or Christians as friends.”
Neighborness. The Koran commands Muslims to wage war against your neighbors who do not believe in Allah 9:123. Believers! wage war against such of the infidels as are your neighbours, and let them find you rigorous: and know that God is with those who fear him.
2. Fellowship. Those Christians who say Jesus is the Messiah are infidels, 5:17: Infidels now are they who say, “Verily God is the Messiah Ibn Maryam (son of Mary)!
3. Peace. The Koran commands Muslims to make no peace until all accept Islam: 2:193: “Fight therefore against them until . . . the only worship be that of Allah.”
Perhaps the reason these churches are offering peace to the Muslims, is they are afraid not to. The Koran commands Muslims to kill who do not offer you peace, 4:91: But if they leave you not, nor propose terms of peace to you nor withhold their hands, then seize them, and slay them, wherever ye find them.
McLaren is not fasting for the salvation of his Muslim friends he said. "Instead he is seeking through the practice of this Islamic ritual to promote 'the common good, together with people of other faith traditions,'" he writes.
Anybody who celebrates the coming of the Koran, which is the root of world wide terrorism is either ignorant of what it teaches or insane.
