The Christian, Jewish and Muslim religions have come together, establishing common ground for the common good–certainly a Communitarian one world religion approach to God. The National Association of Evangelicals and the World Evangelical Alliance have committed the Christian community to teaching the good of the Muslim faith tradition at least one week out of every year. The leaders of these two organizations and, quite frankly, many more so-called “Christian” leaders have fallen prey to dhimmitude, or submission to Islam by a conquered foe. At a conference held July 24-31 at Yale University, Christian and Jewish religious leaders bowed to Islam’s call for unity.
A joint statement approved unanimously by all 140 participants was based on the Quranic 3:64 commandment: “Say: O People of the Scripture! Come to a common word between us and you: that we shall worship none but God, and that we shall ascribe no partner unto Him.” A more common translation of the Quran for that very same verse reads: “Say: O followers of the Book! Come to an equitable proposition between us and you that we shall not serve any but Allah and that we shall not associate aught with Him, and that some of us shall not take others for lords besides Allah; but if they turn back, then say: Bear witness that we are Muslims.” These Christian and Jewish leaders have been duped into a snare of satan.
In the same chapter, Quran 3:85 commands: “And whoever desires a religion other than Islam, it shall not be accepted from him, and in the hereafter he shall be one of the losers.” And just prior, Quran 3:28 says, “Let not the believers take the unbelievers for friends rather than believers; and whoever does this, he shall have nothing of (the guardianship of) Allah, but you should guard yourselves against them, guarding carefully.” The entire context of Quran 3 upon which the Muslims have called for common ground on a common word is to establish that there is no other god than Allah. These arrogant Christian leaders have come into agreement with Islam and are promoting this drivel to the Body of Christ.
This is reminiscent of God instructing Ezekiel to dig into the walls of the temple where he found the high priests committing abominations and worshiping other gods. In Ezekiel 9:10, the Lord said, “And as for me also, mine eye shall not spare, neither will I have pity, but I will recompense their way upon their head.” These spiritual leaders were subject to harsher judgment because they led astray those who would follow God. Jesus said in John 14:6, “I am the way, the truth and the life: no man comes unto the father but by me.” If you are a Christian, this is what you believe. It is not about Allah or a common word. Its about Christ and Him crucified.
