ISLAM and Rick Warren

ISLAM - a PEACEFUL religion? A courageous young English lady walked amongst verbally abusive Muslim demonstrators in her former hometown, Luton, England. The lack of respect shown towards her by many of the picoting Muslims, and the insults hurled at British Authority (police and judicial law) is shocking to witness (see clip below).

But in the light of these overtly aggressive Muslim sentiments of non-peace towards non-muslims one wonders why the naivety of Evangelical Pastor Rick Warren of Saddleback, the 8th largest Church in USA and other Christian leaders continues as they seek peace with Muslims who won't settle for peace outside of conversion to Islam? Why would Rick Warren think the behaviour of British Muslims any different to American Muslims? Yet, Warren continues to suppose the religious view of Islam can somehow be separated from its very fabric, Sharia Law, an ingrained essence that combines Islam's political constitution, legal, economic, military, dietary, social and cultural system of life?

Perhaps Western culture is able to untangle religious legalism from daily living but Sharia Law doesn't allow that privilege which only comes with a freedom Islam won't permit its followers. Instead Sharia Law demands its people dress in a certain manner (women must wear legally instated religious covering), there are certain protocols attached to eating (not only in food choice but how it must be served), certain laws of taxation towards those who aren't Muslim, property rights against women and children, and so go the dictates of Sharia. (SEE BOOK: Slavery Terrorism & Islam: The Historical Roots and Contemporary Threat by Peter Hammond)

Rick Warren, along with hundreds of Christians, confuse Islam and Sharia's intolerance with the fantasy notion that Muslims will unite with non-muslims for the "common ground" and reconciliation and work together in social programs for global peace. Rick Warren's delusion, and that of Christian leaders who are leading the sheep astray, is imbedded in their not recognising that Muslims will not cooperate with non-muslims in any agenda that doesn't promote conversion to Islam, because Muslims believe the world's problem is that the whole world isn't submitted to Sharia Law and aren't Muslims! Despite this Islamic mandate Rick Warren pressed on regardless saying at the 2009 Islam Conference:

"I am not interested in interfaith dialogue, I am interested in interfaith projects. There is a big difference­. Talk is very cheap. And you can talk and talk and talk and not get anything done. Love is something you do. It is something that we do together. Love is a verb. Now as the two largest faiths on this planet, Muslims and Christians­, we must lead in this. We must lead. With over one billion Muslims, and over 2 billion Christians­, together, as half the world, we have to do something, about modeling what it means to live in peace, to live in harmony."

"The first thing we have to do is what I call on Muslims and Christians together to model; what it means to respect the dignity of every person. The tensions that we see in our world, and we see these tensions all around us, friends, dear friends, they are not going to be solved by mere tolerance. Tolerance is not enough. People do not want to be tolerated, they want to be respected. They want to be treated with dignity. They want to be listened to. They want to be valued."

Warren continues in the naive belief that he can change the very essence of Islam as noted in 2007 when he, along with 300 Christian leaders signed an agreement which I'll explain later. Meanwhile, suffice it to say here, the results of Christians uniting has blossomed into another type of configuration where people of various world religions (a preparation which the Bible warns will occur for the one-world religion of the Anti-Christ) got together in June of 2011 heralding a type of Christian Islam called "Chrislam" by many. This religious blend encouraged services in Christian churches all across America with clerics of other religious traditions reading together from their sacred texts in "spiritual" services for world peace.

How did this happen? Well in part syncretism, unity, embrace of paganism et al has been going on since sin entered the world in the Garden of Eden and can be read about in the Old Testament as God's Chosen People, Israel, rebelled against their Maker and His Commandments. In the last 2000 years the rebellion against God entered the Church since its birth at Pentecost. Satan's attempts have been unrelenting in his desire to undermine the Authority of God's Word and encourage God's people not to obey or follow their Maker.

But in the more recent past, in 2006 Pope Benedict XVI lectured at the University of Regensburg about Faith and Reason and part of his lecture featured Islam. in response, 38 Islamic scholars, representing all branches of Islam, took issue with some of what they contended was objectionable and replied in an open letter which was followed a year later with the co-signing by 138 Muslim personalities in a letter attempting to promote interfaith dialogue. The endevour was titled A Common Word Between Us & You.

In response to the Common Word another letter was initiated, surprisingly both documents were authored and written by Muslims. The latter response was called "Loving God and Neighbor Together: A Christian Response to a Common Word Between Us and You". It emphasized the "absolutely central" commonality between both religions: love of God and love of neighbor.

The Christian-endorsed statement included such signatories as Rick Warren of Saddleback Church, Bill Hybels of Willow Creek Community Church, and Leith Anderson of the National Association of Evangelicals and urged for interfaith dialogue that would build relations and reshape the Christian and Islamic communities. In it Christian leaders also agreed that, "Before we shake your hand" in responding to your letter we ask forgiveness "of the All-Merciful One" of sins committed against Muslims in the Crusades, Muslim communities around the world, and excesses of the war on terror in the letter.

In A Common Word Between Us and You Muslims advocated that we (non-muslims: Christians, Jews etc) could possibly work together with Muslims if it was agreed that we all worship the same God defined as "the compassionate and merciful one". This title is the formal Islamic formulation for the Muslim Allah who teaches in the Koran that Mohammed is a Prophet, that Jesus didn't die for mankind's sins on the cross (Judas died on the cross in Jesus' place), that Jesus is merely a human prophet and not the Son of God (9 times the Koran denies Jesus Christ as the Son of God) and that there is no Trinity only one Allah. The Koran states that Muslims must make A Common Word between themselves and people of the Book (Jews and Christians of the Bible)".

The Koran's Surah 3:64 says, "People of the Book come to A Common Word Between Us and You, that we should worship none other but Allah, and that we should associate no partners with him, and that none of us shall take others as lords beside Allah."

Rick Warren and other Christian leaders must understand that Bible believing Christians can't and won't cooperate with a religion (Islam) that rejects the Triune God of the Holy Bible and that denial of Jesus Christ as the Son of God is the doctrine of the Anti-Christ. The Koran's Surah 5:73 says, "They do blaspheme who say Allah is one of three in a Trinity." Surah 4:171 teaches, "Believe in Allah and say not 'Trinity'. Cease. It is better for you. Allah is only one God. Far is it removed from his transcendent majesty that he should have a son."

Bethel Communications reveals that the same Muslim who initiated 'A Common Word' is the one in charge of what happens on Jerusalem's Temple Mount with the Dome of the Rock and Al Aqsa mosque. The same Muslim who can say yea or nay to the rebuilding of the Jewish Temple. The same one who dialogues with the Pope and the Dalai Lama and who had his resolution for The World Interfaith Harmony Week unanimously adopted by the UN in 2010.

He helped to deliver The Amman Message of tolerance within Islam. This man is a direct descendent of the Islamic prophet Mohammed, a Nobel Peace Prize nominee twice over - and he isn't even 50 years old yet.

This is the one who Rick Warren, Brian McLaren, the Archbishop of Canterbury, Yonggi Cho, Bill Hybels, YWAM, OM and Vineyard have all supported in his initiative to bring peace between the two religions as they find 'A Common Word' between Christianity and Islam. Oh - and one other thing. He has now come up with the brilliant concept that you don't even need to have any religion/faith to sign up to this New Religious World Order. And the UN agrees.
