Churches Loan Their Buildings For Muslim Worship

Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name:
 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth;
 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:9-11

If you do not think the great apostasy which  the Apostle Paul warned  of in 2 Thessalonians 2:1-3 just before the coming of the Lord has arrived, this most recent story, where so-called Christian churches loan their buildings to muslims to worship in should wake you up. This shocking story from Fox News about churches loaning their church buildings for muslim worship should serve as a wake up call to every Bible believing Christian and everyone who reads  this.

It is quite apparent that these “churches” have indeed fallen away from the true faith or do not even know the basic teachings of Jesus Christ and Biblical Christianity.

No where in the Holy Scriptures is it taught to open up your door to another  religion and allow other  teachings to come in to practice another  religion completely incompatible with Christianity,  in a house of the true God. But that is exactly what these churches are doing. Muslims do not believe that Jesus is the Son of God, was crucified and atoned for the sins of mankind on the cross at calvary and rose from the dead. Ask any muslim.  And go on-line and read it for yourself from the Qu'ran.

The Teachings of Islam Concerning The Death and Resurrection of Jesus Christ

The Qu'ran
Sura 4:153-158 denies the crucifixion of Jesus Christ and His Resurrection

And their saying Surely we have killed the Messiah, Isa son of Marium, the apostle of Allah; and they did not kill him nor did they crucify him, but it appeared to them so (like Isa) and most surely those who differ therein are only in a doubt about it; they have no knowledge respecting it, but only follow a conjecture, and they killed him not for sure.

Nay! Allah took him up to Himself; and Allah is Mighty, Wise.

Sura 9.30:

And the Jews say: Uzair is the son of Allah; and the Christians say: The Messiah is the son of Allah; these are the words of their mouths; they imitate the saying of those who disbelieved before; may Allah destroy them; how they are turned away!

Sura 17.111 teaches God has no son.

“And say: (All) praise is due to Allah, Who has not taken a son and Who has not a partner in the kingdom, and Who has not a helper to save Him from disgrace; and proclaim His greatness magnifying (Him).”
Sura 23:91

“Never did Allah take to Himself a son, and never was there with him any other god-- in that case would each god have certainly taken away what he created, and some of them would certainly have overpowered others; glory be to Allah above what they describe!”

Sura 4.171

The teachings of Islam deny the Holy Trinity of God, and refer to Jesus (Isa), the Son of God as only an apostle:

“O followers of the Book! do not exceed the limits in your religion, and do not speak lies against Allah, but speak the truth; the Messiah, Isa son of Marium is only an apostle of Allah and His Word which He communicated to Marium and a spirit from Him; believe therefore in Allah and His apostles, and say not, Three.”

John 3:18, from Jesus Christ Himself, reads

"He that believeth on him is not condemned: but he that believeth NOT is condemned already because he hath not believed in the name of the only begotten Son of God."
Steve Stone, Heartsong's senior pastor, wrote in Christianity Today said: 
"No thought at all was given to the political ramifications … The decision was firmly based only on our understanding of the mission and nature of the church.
The mission of the church?

 Unless you are reading a different gospel, according to Jesus Christ himself, the Great Commission is the primary mission of all Bible believing Christians, who are the true church of Christ.  These so called Christians- of these so called churches, are going against the very teachings of Jesus Christ spoken of in the Great Commission from Christ Himself  after His Resurrection; these so called Christian "churches" should be sharing the Gospel of Christ with these very muslims, who do not know the one true God, and not enable  them to continue to  believe something that you know is not true. This is not love at all. If you love Jesus Christ, who is  God, you will want to please Him, and not partake in allowing a false belief system to use His house to practice what He taught  against as the  Holy Scriptures clearly reveal. You will be obedient to His command and go forth, empowered by His Holy Spirit,  with His Great Commission, by bringing  others into the Kingdom of the one true God. and  not open the door to God’s House, and let others practice something that goes against His Word there.

How sad this is that they would allow a false belief system  to come into their very buildings dedicated to the Lord Jesus Christ and worship another god.  The Apostle Paul, in his letter to the Galatians, warned the church concerning those who would pervert the Gospel of Christ, when he said:
“I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ, unto another gospel:
Which is not another, but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.
But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you, let him be accursed."
The Apostle Paul further writes in I Timothy 4:1 that
“Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils.
Finally,  the Apostle John, in the Revelation of Jesus Christ wrote
Come out of her, my people, that ye be not partakers of her sins, and that ye receive not of her plagues. Revelation 18:4
These warnings from the Lord's apostles, and the Lord Jesus Christ, is something the church of Jesus Christ must take very seriously.  Our Lord paid a painful  price for our salvation, and His House is a place of reverence to Him only.  Our Lord God is not about to share his glory with any other god that has already been rejected by His Holy Word.
