The Rev. Rick Warren, pastor of Saddleback Church in Lake Forest and one of America's most influential Christian leaders, has embarked on an effort to heal divisions between evangelical Christians and Muslims by partnering with Southern California mosques and proposing a set of theological principles that includes acknowledging that Christians and Muslims worship the same God. Story here.
Rick Warren can say what he wants, but that doesn't make it so.
New World Order pastor and CFR puppet propagandist Rick Warren by acknowledging that Christians and muslims worship the same God, indeed, is now admitting that he himself is not a Christian.
Even most muslims know that Christians and muslims do not worship the same God and must be laughing at Warren behind his back. Not only is Rick Warren deceiving himself, but he is also deceiving those millions of unaware muslims and Christians he has contact with and Rick Warren will be held accountable to God for deceiving millions.
Throughout the Middle East and Asia and Africa, and Israel on a daily basis, Christians and Jews and muslims are murdered in the name of the muslim god, "allah", by muslims, are severely persecuted, beheaded and hanged for denouncing Islam to follow the Son of God, Jesus Christ who Himself is God. Since 1948, muslims have called for the extermination of the Jews in Israel. Check out the Religion of Peace, Jihad Watch and Atlas Shrugs, or any Palestinian media in the Middle East to see first hand how Islamists treat Christians and Jews, people of other religions, and their own fellow muslims who leave Islam for Christianity. Check out these same sites how Islam treat women.
Only a wolf in sheep's clothing, or an apostate, or someone who has committed spiritual blasphemy, could say that muslims and Christians worship the same God. Islam and Biblical Christianity have absolutely nothing in common.
The muslim god is called "allah". The name of the Christian God in the Hebrew Scriptures, the Bible, is from Exodus 3:14, and is "I AM", or "YHVH" or YAHWEH - the special name of God was combined with "The LORD God of your fathers, the God of Abraham, the God of Isaac and the God of Jacob, hath sent me unto you: THIS IS MY NAME FOREVER, and this is my memorial unto all generations". See Exodus 3:15-16.
There is only one God. So the question is: When was the last time you heard a muslim call the Lord God Almighty by His chosen Hebrew name which God himself declared is His Name forever? When did you ever hear a muslim say 'Jesus is LORD?"
The god of Islam and the God of the Bible have completely opposite attitudes and goals with a totally different morality, as servants of Islam have shown for over 1400 years, continuing through today.
For instance, their book tells those who follow Islam:
"But when the forbidden months are past, then fight and slay the pagans wherever ye find them, and seize them, beleaguer them and lie in wait [ambush] for them in every stratagem (of war)" Sura 9:5.The God of the Bible, God's Son, Yeshua (Jesus) tells His people to "Bless them that curse you." Luke 6:28
Muslims do not believe that God has a Son. Muslims do not believe that Jesus ever claimed to be God's Son, but will tell you that Jesus was a prophet only, denying the very words of Jesus Himself. Muslims will even tell you they believe in Jesus, to convince you that their god is the same as the Christian God in an effort to convert you to Islam.
Matthew 11:27-28 "All things are delivered unto me of my father: and no man knoweth the Son, but the Father; neither knoweth any man the Father, save the Son, and he to whomsoever the Son will reveal him. Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest."
Luke 10:22 "All things are delivered to me of my Father: and no man knoweth who the Son is, but the Father and who the Father is, but the Son, and he to whom the Son will reveal him.
Muslims believe that God has no Son and deny the Holy Trinity.
Sura 4:171: O People of the Book! Commit no excesses in your religion: Nor say of Allah aught but the truth. Christ Jesus the son of Mary was (no more than) a messenger of Allah, and His Word, which He bestowed on Mary, and a spirit proceeding from Him: so believe in Allah and His messengers. Say not "Trinity" : desist: it will be better for you: for Allah is one Allah: Glory be to Him: (far exalted is He) above having a son. To Him belong all things in the heavens and on earth. And enough is Allah as a Disposer of affairsMuslims claim Christians are polytheistic because Christians believe Jesus is the Son of God, but Jesus said
"I and My Father are One." John 10:30One in Greek, meaning one essense. In other words, Jesus is saying He and God the Father are one being.
Muslims do not believe that Jesus was crucified on the cross for the atonement of the sins of humanity.
Surah 4:157 That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of Allah";- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-If a muslim were to confess that Jesus Christ is the Son of God he would be committing "shirk", the greatest sin in Islam and the only unpardonable sin. And the penalty is death.
Without Jesus the Son of God, who shed His blood on the cross at calvary to atone for the sins of the human race, there can be no salvation. Hebrews 9:22
Islam and Christianity are the exact opposite and are not compatible with one another.
Rick Warren follows another gospel, another god, another jesus, and not the Gospel of Christ.
The Jewish Apostle Paul issues a stern warning in Galatians 1:8
"But though we, or an angel from heaven, preach any other gospel unto you than that which we have preached unto you, let him be accursed."I urge everyone who reads this to heed the warning. Love those who curse you, and build bridges to reach those that still live in darkness;and most importantly, give them the salvation message of forgiveness of sin through Jesus Christ who took their penalty for sin and nailed it to the cross with Him. Don't deny the true God that bought you with his blood, Jesus Christ.
Lord, continue to watch over all of your children and see us through this spiritual battle until the end. In Jesus name I pray.
