I was talking to my dearest girlfriend the other night about false teachers/prophets, and the name Rick Warren popped up. My friend receives Warren’s daily emails and she was puzzled because they seemed fine to her. I explained that he is a big proponent of the ecumenical/interfaith movement, especially with building bridges with Muslims.
He has signed a document that you can find HERE that states the following…
Christians have been guilty of sinning against our Muslim neighbors. Before we “shake your hand” in responding to your letter, we ask forgiveness of the All-Merciful One and of the Muslim community around the world.
Love of God
We applaud that A Common Word Between Us and You stresses so insistently the unique devotion to one God, indeed the love of God, as the primary duty of every believer. God alone rightly commands our ultimate allegiance.
The ‘All-Merciful One’ is a name attributed to the god of the Koran! Also devotion to this ‘one God’ is not possible, as the Biblical God and the Allah of the Koran are NOT one of the same! The Biblical God recognises the triune nature of, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. The Koran states that Allah/god has NO son and anyone believing otherwise should be cast aside and be considered an infidel.
How ANY one can sign such a document and then supposedly stand on the Word of God as the ONLY inspired Word is beyond me. You simply cannot have darkness and light together.
Anyway, I have done a little more research and I happened to find this youtube that explains perfectly my concerns about Rick Warren and Chrislam. Have a listen, and see what you think…
Also, if you would like to find out more, here is a pretty good site that really does its homework. I am going to blogroll it too.
