Chrislam: the Merger of Christianity and Islam! 10/15/2012

Christianity and Islam are the world’s two largest religions. With 2.18 billion Christians and 1.6 billion Muslims the world-round, it’s safe to say that these two faith systems impact, to a profound extent, social and political events occurring in diverse societies.

But what about “Chrislam,” the controversial, new belief system that combines Christianity and Islam?

Shamsuddin Saka, a religious leader in Nigeria, is seeking to bridge the religious divide and to bring together Muslims and Christians like never before. Here in the U.S. some Christians are taking a good look at “Chrislam,” the union of the two religions.

Saka, who was born a Muslim but is now a Christian at heart, claims that he felt called by God to launch his Chrislam ministry following a pilgrimage to Mecca, a commanded voyage that is one of Islam’s Five Pillars.

The faith leader takes the unique approach of preaching about the common roots that peoples of both faiths share (i.e. that they are both children of Abraham, both promote peace, etc.).

Chrislam is absurd. In Islam the deity of Christ is denied, no atoning crucifixion, no Savior, no assurance of eternal life, no love and forgivness of others. Muhammad said, kill your enemies, Jesus said love your enemies.
