Before we continue with the subject of Chrislam I want to say a few words about Muhammad Ali since his death has bee so much in the news. I remember as a kid how my father and I would watch him box. He was a great boxer and he was also a great talker. We also know he was a Muslim. He changed his name from Cassius Clay to Muhammad Ali, taking on the name of Islam’s Prophet, and Ali, the name of Muhammad’s son-in-law. He became a member of the Nation of Islam (NOI).
Louis Farrakhan is the current leader of the NOI. We need to understand that the NOI is a racist organization. It has been racist from its inception. They teach a black liberation theology which says the white man is the enemy and the oppressor. It teaches that one day, with Allah’s help, they will overcome the oppressor and make the white man their slaves.
This organization has taken on a religious front for their racism. The irony is that Muhammad was a racist against black people. He was an Arab and had some very harsh things to say against the black man. He described them as evil and compared them to the Devil. In one example one of his biographers said:
I heard the Prophet say, “Whoever wants to see Satan should look at Namtal. He was a black man with long flowing hair inflamed eyes and dark ruddy cheeks.
He said that if we want to get an idea what Satan looks like we just need to look at a black man.
In the Qur’an itself we have racist statements:
Surah 9:61 – If a black man comes to you, his heart is more gross than a donkey’s.
The NOI has taken this god and this prophet to be their hero. How blind can people be?
Lets get back into the subject for today:
Examples of Chrislam Marching On
According to some, the Pope is the most revered spiritual leader in the world. We have seen many overtones toward Islam by the present Pope. He has visited the mosque in Istanbul, and even joined them in their Islamic prayers. He has made comments about Muslims and Christians being brothers and sisters.
The idea that Muslims and Christians are brothers and sisters greatly offends me because the Bible is very clear that we are brothers and sisters in Christ. Muslims are not in Christ and, therefore, are not our brothers and sisters.
The idea that we are both part of the “Abrahamic faith” would mean that we are brothers and sisters. This would include the Jews, the Christians, and the Muslims. We will see later that Islam is not an Abrahamic faith.
The most troubling thing to me is that the Pope invited the top Islamic cleric, Sheikh Ahmed al-Tayeb, to the Vatican. He is connected with the most prestigious Sunni university in the world. The Vatican said, after the meeting, that the purpose was to bring the two “churches” (Note that Islam is referred to as a church) together. They said that this was an historic bid to reopen dialog between the two “churches.” When did the mosque become the church? This is not a minor event, but how much did you hear about it in the news?
This is certainly a major development of Chrislam. It is a major effort to bring the two faiths together. Many of you are probably thinking, as we have, that this is the march toward the one world religion of the Book of Revelation. I think it is.
On the heels of this, we have the Archbishop of the Anglican Church saying that Christians should not talk about their faith unless they are first asked. What did Christ have to say about this?
Go ye therefore, and teach all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father, and of the Son, and of the Holy Ghost: Teaching them to observe all things whatsoever I have commanded you: and, lo, I am with you alway, even unto the end of the world. Amen. (Matthew 28:19-20)
He didn’t say we should wait for permission. If we wait for permission, how will those who have never heard ever hear the Gospel? Thank God that the girl who shared her faith with Shahram didn’t wait until he gave her permission. If she had, he would never have gotten saved. The whole idea of waiting to speak to the lost is against the Scriptures.
I would like to point out that this is submitting to dhimmitude (the submission of non-Muslims to Islam). It is submission to Sharia Law and to the domination of Islam. This is willing submission because there has been no sword put to his neck threatening him with death.
Islam has the concept of dhimmitude where Christians submit to Islam. They cannot build new churches, they cannot evangelize, they cannot say anything about their religion outside of their churches and their private homes. Most importantly you cannot proselyte unless you are asked. It is interesting that this happened just as London elects a Muslim mayor.
The Archbishop of Canterbury is the head of the Church of England. Here it is called tha Anglican or Episcopal Church. I call them “non-union Catholics.” They don’t carry the union card of Catholicism, but they are beginning to merge back into the Catholic Church because their theological beliefs are almost identical.
“Christian” Pastors Visit A Mosque In Denver
Twenty pastors decided to visit a mosque. It is interesting that you never hear of imams visiting Christian churches unless they are there to preach Islam. These pastors were not invited to the mosque to present Christianity. If imams were making the offer for Christian preachers to come and present Christianity to Muslims, we would gladly take them up on it. They were invited to go to the mosque to learn about Islam. By the way, it was a perverted presentation of Islam.
One of the groups of pastors involved is called the Peace Catalyst. This was initiated by the pastors, and their purpose was to build a bridge to their Muslim neighbors. We do need to build bridges that allow is to talk to Muslims about our faith, not to learn about theirs. Here is where these pastors made a major mistake; they went with the idea that there is common ground between Islam and Christianity.
Listen carefully to this next statement. Ever time you try to dialog with a Muslim thinking there is common ground, you will loose the battle. You will never be able to evangelize your Muslim friend when you believe there is common ground between you. If we are going to reach Muslims with the Gospel, we must do it properly. If you try to find common ground you will have to accept their Jesus, who is not the Jesus of the Bible.
These pastors were lied to at the meeting. They were told that Islam does not promote violence, that Islam came to abolish slavery, that the Hijab is to promote a woman’s character, etc.
If you accept the common ground, you pervert the Bible. To accept the idea of common ground you must accept, or at least give credence to their perverted, antichrist version of Jesus.
