What is “Chrislam” and who preaches it?

posted by

Are Christianity and Islam about to merge in to a worldwide mega-religion called Chrislam?

Jack Van Impe

Popular TV preacher Jack Van Impe recently ended his decades-long run on Trinity Broadcasting Network after he publicly accused California megachurch founder Rick Warren of mixing Christian and Muslim beliefs. TBN pulled the episode before a repeat broadcast could air — prompting Impe to announce he could no longer work with TBN.

Van Impe and his co-host wife, Rexella, cited Warren’s speech to an Islamic conference in Washington in 2009 and Warren’s invocation at President Obama’s inaguration that invoked the name of Jesus in several languages. They claimed Warren said churches can attract new believers by taking crosses down from inside and outside their buildings.

Rick Warren

Warren, however, has said exactly the opposite: “If you remove the cross from the church, it’s no longer the church. Just a social club.”

Is Chrislam the religion of the future? Science-fiction author Arthur C. Clarke, who wrote 2001: A Space Odyssey, may have been the first to coin the term — as a futuristic religion he imagined.

Rick Warren on Chrislam  What is Chrislam? Is it the End of the World??  Muslims Save Bible Store 

Arthur C. Clarke

The concept is likely to be embraced by a few non-fundamentalists on either side of the divide, such as Universalists, Unitarians and maybe some Buddhists. There are Hindus and Shinto faithful who are willing to add Christianity and Islam to their belief spectrum — rejecting that there is any single path to God.

However, Christianity has at its very core that Jesus is the only way to heaven — and that eternal salvation is a gift of grace, earned for mankind by Christ’s crucifixion. Islam holds the firm view that eternal damnation awaits those who do not earn salvation by submiting to the requirements of the Koran, which describes Jesus as a noteworthy prophet who didn’t really die on the cross.

So, how does one reconcile the two views?

Shamsuddin Saka

In Nigeria, Shamsuddin Saka seeks to bridge the religious divide. However, notes Fred de Sam Lazaro for “The World” radio program on Public Radio International:

It doesn’t take much to spark religious violence in the West African nation of Nigeria. Just this past weekend, rioting erupted in the town of Bauchi after Muslims parked their cars in front of a church. Bauchi lies along a line between Nigeria’s mainly Muslim north and the Christian south. Tensions in the region often spill over into violence, but one man is trying to bridge the gap. He preaches a liturgy that blends Christianity and Islam.

Of hundreds of small churches in Lagos, this likely is the only one that has both a Bible and a Qur’an on the lectern. The invocations come loudly from both. Practitioners of what the preacher calls ‘Chrislam,’ fifteen 1,500 on some Sundays, see no religious fault line.

Saka preaches that Christians and Muslims are both children of Abraham — which is historically accurate, according to both the Bible, the Koran and DNA studies.

Saka was born Muslim, and, the PRI report notes: ” it was after returning from a Hajj pilgrimage to Mecca that he was inspired – he says instructed by God – to launch his new ministry: “That was about 19 years ago. I was praying and I [laid] down and the Lord told me, make peace between Christian and Muslim.”

Christian Science Monitor reporter Abraham McLaughlin describes Saka’s place of worship:

At first, it seems a surprising sight: inside a two-story mosque in sub-Saharan Africa’s largest metropolis hangs a life-size portrait of Jesus Christ.

Yet worshipers at “The True Message of God Mission” say it’s entirely natural for Christianity and Islam to co-exist, even overlap. They begin their worship by praying at the Jesus alcove and then “running their deliverance” — sprinting laps around the mosque’s mosaic-tiled courtyard, praying to the one God for forgiveness and help. They say it’s akin to Israelites circling the walls of Jericho – and Muslims swirling around the Ka’ba shrine in Mecca.

This group — originally called “Chris-lam-herb” for its mix-and-match approach to Christianity, Islam, and traditional medicine – is a window on an ongoing religious ferment in Africa. It’s still up for debate whether this group, and others like it, could become models for Muslim-Christian unity worldwide or whether they’re uniquely African. But either way, they are “part of a trend,” says Dana Robert, a Boston University religion professor.

At a nearby church/mosque with perhaps 500 worshipers is a teacher named Tela Tella who says that Saka stole his idea for the religion. Saka’s congregation is larger than Tella’s — primarily because Saka is more aggressive in recruiting new members. PRI describes a service at Saka’s facility:

It begins each Sunday morning with Qur’anic prayer. The prayer is intense, a trance-like frenzy similar to a Pentecostal Christian service. It climaxes with a sermon hitting repeatedly on the themes of prayerfulness and on the commonality between Islam and Christianity.

Ishak Akintola

Ishak Akintola, a religion scholar at nearby Lagos State University, told PRI the spiritual basis for the merger is sound:

“The Bible concentrates on teachings of love; that’s what Jesus says in Matthew: Chapter Five, that you love your neighbor and you even love your enemy. Now you find the Qur’an saying exactly the same thing.”

And there are those academics who predictably think Chrislam is wonderful. Anthropologist Mara Leichtman at Michigan State University notes:

“According to Islam, the prophet Muhammad was the final prophet, but certainly not the only prophet; and they believe in Jesus and all of the other prophets of Judaism and Christianity that came before the prophet Muhammad,”  “So it’s nothing foreign to a Muslim to believe in Jesus, to pray in Jesus, to light a candle for the Virgin Mary, for example, as I’ve experienced Muslims do in churches in Senegal.”

Alan Wisdom

However, Alan Wisdom, director of the Presbyterian Action committee and vice president for research and programs at the Institute on Religion & Democracy contends that Islam should never be viewed as an equal to the gospel of Jesus Christ. Moreover, Qurans should never be placed next to God’s Holy Word, he says. He  told writer Chad Groening at the news site OneNewsNow:

“The Bible is God’s unique revelation to us. The pulpit of a church is for preaching the Word of God, and we believe that that is the scriptures of the Old and New Testament. When we go to worship God, we worship Jesus Christ, and we can’t mix that worship with any other allegiance.”

Wisdom said that while he believes it is important for Christians to study and understand religions like Islam, he does not think believers should ever cross the line and blend Christianity together with a religion that is “antithetical to Christian teachings.”

Bill Muehlenberg

Author Bill Muehlenberg on his website Culture Watch sees no future for Christlam:

Some misguided Christians believe they can somehow combine the two religions and still have something recognisable as the Christian faith. Sorry, but it can’t happen.

Muslims are happy to use such versions of religious syncretism to gain entry into Christian circles, but it just results in the creation of more dhimmitude – Christians becoming second-class citizens.

Islam always wins in such attempts, while Christianity always loses. The truth is, the two religions are fully incompatible. They may seem to be similar (both are world religions, both have Abrahamic origins, both are monotheistic, etc) but the differences are far greater.

Yet some quite foolish Christians think they can blend their faith with that of Islam and still remain intact, effective, and biblical. Sorry, but it just does not – indeed, cannot – happen.

He cites the example of churches in London sharing their premises with Muslims:

They seemed to think that a church and mosque could coexist in the same premises, and that Christianity and Islam could coexist as a faith system. But all that happens is the Christian faith gets watered down while Islam continues to thrive.

Muehlenberg quotes author Mark Durie, an Australian authority on Islam:

“A prominent element in Islamic daily prayers is the recitation of Al-Fatihah (the Opening), the first chapter of the Koran. Often described as a blessing, Al-Fatihah has a sting in its tail. After introductory praises, the final sentence of Al-Fatihah is a request for guidance ‘in the straight path’ of Allah’s blessed ones, not the path ‘of those against whom You are wrathful, nor of those who are astray.’

“Who are the ones who are said to be under Allah’s wrath or to have gone astray from his straight path? According to the revered commentator Ibn Kathir, Muhammad himself gave the answer: ‘Those who have earned the anger are the Jews, and those who are led astray are the Christians.’

“Al-Fatihah is as central to Islamic devotion as the Lord’s Prayer is to Christians: It is recited at least 17 times a day as part of daily Muslim prayers. Yet according to Muhammad himself, this prayer, which is on the lips of every pious Muslim day and night, castigates Christians as misguided and Jews as objects of Allah’s wrath.”

And while Muslims may look up to Jesus as a prophet, they regard it as blasphemous to view him as God’s son and the saviour of the world. As Durie remarks, “Certainly there are some similarities between Isa of the Koran and Jesus of the Gospels. The Koran calls Jesus ‘al-Masih’ – the Messiah – and both figures are said to have been born of a virgin, to have performed miracles of healing and to have raised the dead. Yet here the similarities end. Isa of the Koran was not crucified and did not die but was raised up by Allah (Sura 4:157-158).

David Dollins

Author David Dollins doesn’t pull any punches in his denunciation of the concept — quoting Peter the Apostle:

“But there were false Prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord Who bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction” (2 Peter 2:1).

“For these church leaders,” declares Dollins, “who are blind watchmen, to bring Islam and the reading of the Quran into the Church is to deny the Lord himself, it is to deny who He is, and it is to deny what He accomplished at Calvary’s Cross 2,000 years ago, when He gave His life for the sins of the world!”

He continues in his blog “Bible Prophecy” on the website of the Christian Post:

Just as bad, it is an open acceptance of the Spirit of Antichrist, which John said will bring swift destruction and ultimately, yet sadly, the damning of the soul.

What should the Church do now? We must get back to proclaiming that Jesus Christ is the only way of salvation without fear of reprisal. We must defend and preach the deity of Jesus, that He is the one true God and there is no other. Then we must also boldly proclaim the Holy Scriptures, not the Quran, as the inspired and inerrant Word of God.

Everyone should be free to practice their religion in the way they choose. What this is about is defending the truth of who Jesus Christ is and what He accomplished at the Cross, and preserving the purity of the Church against the infiltration of false doctrine. The Early Church Fathers (e.g., St. Polycarp, St. Irenaeus) defended the Truth against heresy, so why don’t we?

John MacArthur

And never one to mince words, author Dr. John MacArthur on his website Grace to You writes:

When evangelicals capitulate and attempt to soften the offense of the gospel [by joining with Muslims] in this way, they blur the lines between the god of Islam and the God of the Bible. But now is not the time for blurring lines. Now is the time to draw lines—lines between truth and error, and between the one path to heaven and the many paths to hell.

Islam rejects the Trinity and the God of the Bible, insisting instead that Allah alone is the one true deity. It denies that Jesus is God, that He died on the cross, and that He was raised from the dead. Instead, say Muslims, Jesus was but one of thousands of prophets sent by Allah, the greatest of them being Mohammed. In other words, Jesus was merely a man.

Islam rejects the salvation of forgiveness through Christ, teaching that only Muslims can be saved. According to the Koran, if a person follows Islam and does enough good deeds to outweigh the bad, Allah may allow him to enter paradise, but even then he can’t be certain. The only sure pathway to heaven is killing and being killed in jihad, a holy war.

Islam gives lip service to the Bible as a holy book, but it undermines and denies every fundamental doctrine about sin and salvation taught in the Bible. In fact, Islam today is the most powerful system on earth for the destruction of biblical truth and Christianity—thousands of Christians are dying under Islamic persecution, especially in the Middle East, Africa, Indonesia, and other parts of Asia.

Clearly, Islam and Christianity are mutually exclusive. Both claim to be the only true way to God, but both cannot be right. There is no atonement in Islam, no forgiveness, no savior, and no assurance of eternal life. The gospel of Jesus Christ is a message of hope; Islam is a religion of hopelessness.

Making these kinds of distinctions may not be politically correct, but it is critical if the purity of the gospel is to be protected. Put simply, there is no salvation outside of Christ. When this truth is compromised, the gospel is abandoned—and so is the only hope that we can offer to those who are not our enemies, but rather our mission field.

    “Saka preaches that Christians and Muslims are both children of Abraham — which is historically accurate, according to both the Bible, the Koran and DNA studies.”

    I think he means Jews and Arabs.
    Bill Muehlenberg, and David Dollins are correct: The Bible and the Quran are mutually exclusive in their positions.

    However with the next “Islam friendly(Jesus neutral)”, NIV…Lord help us!
    Chrislam, sounds like Christlamb! and Christ is first! Or how about “Is-Christ”? then Islam is first!

    That is completely wrong.

    Christians worship the God of Abraham, Isaac and JACOB.

    Muslims do not follow that order.

    This is the first I’ve heard of Christlam. And shocked that Rick Warren is leaning towards it! Trying to combine Islam with Christianity is wrong ~ and would only result in dire consequences for EVERYONE!

  • Rob Kerby, Senior Editor

    Rick Warren adamantly denies that he is leaning toward any compromise of Christianity — but instead he is obeying the Great Commission by reaching out to Muslims. Missionaries have been doing this for at least 1,000 years.

    when Christ comes again these who try to mix Christianty with the “religion” of the devil will find out the hard way that they were wrong

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Robert Anderson

    True Christians already know what judgements are in store for those who change the Bible. Those who would add to or remove from the Bible are in for a real shock at the Judgement Day. Those who are deceived by those who have changed God’s Word have a special place at the judgement and will not be very happy. Unfortunately, those who have been deceived by those teachers may be lost forever. A shame.

    Chrislam, is a concept which comes straight from the bowels of hell.

    Don’t be fooled my friends. God is not mocked. Beware of wolves who come dressed in Sheep’s clothing. Beware of false prophets.

    Read your Bibles, and study to show yourselves workmen, and women approved. Don’t just take some persons word as if it were Gospel truth. Check it out for yourself. We are all responsible for what we believe, and what we take into our minds. Get away from all the garbage, and get back to the truth. God’s word is truth. Read it for yourselves.

    Islam is a lie, and Muhammad was a liar, and a false prophet.

    Truth is an absolute. People might want to believe in a lie, however, that does not make the lie truth.

    Chrislam, is a lie. You can’t combine light with darkness. What fellowship can they have? I’ll tell you what will happen – The darkness, and evil will corrupt the good, and the light will be snuffed out.

    Wake up people.

    Interesting article. It would’ve been interesting to read the comments of some Imams on the subject- especially since the comments included from Christian ministers included some fairly harsh criticism of Islam. I’m sure that many Imams would probably agree that the Quran was not genuinely compatible with Christian faith, even though Jesus is a character in the Islamic mythos.

    The Bible teaches that “by their fruits ye shall know them”. What are the fruits of Islam? They are terrorism, beheadings, stonings of rape victims, Jihadism, and barbarism and brainwashing of youth to die for Islam. The fruits of Christianity are World Vision, Save the Children, Christian Children’s Fund, Samaritan’s Purse, etc. Which fruits do you like better?

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Saadia

    It is said in the field of journalism that the last quote mentioned in an article reflects the opinion of its writers – should this be true in this case, here the last quote emphasizes the differences and their necessity to separate and the inevitable blending of Islam and Christianity into one faith. You are wrong. I am a practicing Muslim at a Catholic college, heavily involved in the Campus Ministry, attending Sunday Mass each week, and yet I am able to maintain my own beliefs and prayers as a Muslim, and am perhaps a better follower of the one God than I could be without my Catholic community. My existence and successes here provide far more evidence for coexistence and mutual respect and dialogue than your attempts to separate us will ever provide.

    We must pray for those that are being led astray thinking Islam and Christianity can be brought together in the name of love. Their goal is to kill the infidels that don’t convert to Islam. Who are the infidels? All Christians and Jews! God help us, and I don’t mean Allah.

    Not no but hell no to Christiam teachings what kind of crap is that?

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Gaia

    Jesus was a Jew. His message for Jewish teachings of Tora and tanakh (Jewish Bible…which Christians appropriated as “Old” testament and us it in their preachings. The New Testament does not have anything new except explanations of Jesus life and his message (which was Jewish message to the pagans in Rome and Greece) and also Paul’s decision to proclaim that followers of Jesus did not have to follow the LAW (Jesus himself was demanding that people follow the LAW as spelled in Deuteronomy) because many pagans were not crazy about circumcision and dietary laws.

    Paul made it easier for them to belong to this new Church, which when they came to power started harassing the Jews, which ended up in Inquisition and murder of Jews and pogroms. Ultimately, anti-semitism created by Christianity resulted in Holocaust..

    Islam came ~600 years after Christianity and Koran is appropriating Jewish and Christian writings and stories just as Christianity had appropriated Jewish teachings. Half of Koran are diatribes against Jews, Christians and “other” and Muslims are warned against making friends with them.

    Unfortunately Mohamed was a pedophile polygamist (married Aisha one of his 12 wives when she was 6 years old and he was 53) and a murderer who was responsible for gruesome death, by beheading, of 900 Jews who did not accept him as THEIR prophet. Not a nice guy, especially when compared with Moses and Jesus (both Jews). Islam needs reformation badly since Koranic verses induce delusional Jew-hatred (as previously Christianity did) and inspiration for terrorism by promising fast track to Paradise (with 72 virgins) if they die as “martyrs”, iu.e. murdering Jews and Americans in the name of Allah.

    Since there are 1,600 MILLIONS of Muslims in the world, many of them in Africa (Nigeria) perhaps it would be food if this preecher in Nigeria can promote reformation of Islam to make it compatible with the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, which it it is not now.

    HAVE YOU PEOPLE LOST YOUR MINDS!!!!! Christanity, and Muslims CAN NOT MIX!!! we are truly living in the lasts days, people wake up, and start reading and studying the HOLY BIBLE, Jesus spoke of things like this happening in the last days. My advice in to start reading the book of Matthews, in the new testiment. There is ONLY ONE GOD, AND ONE SON, AND HIS NAME IS JESUS CHRIST. IF you think that you can mix christanity with Islam, you are saddly mistaken, and confused, and is being lied to, you need Jesus to show you the way, because you are truly lost, I will pray for all who are lost.

    i think that no one has the right to judge others regardless of their background but like some brothers said in the articule we can not allow ourselves conform to things outside of Christ, and the brother in Africa, you should be careful that you said God said to unite the two beleifs together well i think you need to reexamine yourself and pray some more and see which voice you are listening to. for i feel that they(Islam) need to conform to the way of Christ first then they will have all the benefits we do by serving our Lord Jesus Christ

  • http://AddaURLtothiscomment Carmine Fragione

    Now if the Muslims will admit that the final Prophet is not Mohammed, but Jesus , seeing Jesus outlives Mohammed , then it is Islam that must reform to take away Mohammed as the final prophet and establish Jesus Christ as the final prophet, since Jesus is alive, Mohammed is dead and nothing else would then make sense. Jesus is alive, Jesus is prophet, Jesus is of the Word of God, the Word of God is Eternal, thus what is the Word of God , is Jesus Christ, and as the Word of God is Eternal, then Jesus is Eternal , since He is the Living Word of God, and Mohammed is dead. So Islam is the false religion , and theirs is illogical, they must forget Mohammed and make Jesus Christ the final prophet and arbiter of all Law and Justice, by the Teachings of Jesus Christ. The Muslim will not do this, so there is no sense, no logic at all to attempt that.

    This is Satanic and Satan is getting the world ready for the Tribulation Times. I believe that time is coming very soon. Some many prophecies are being fulfilled right before our eyes and it is coming so fast. God said in His word we who love Him would be increased in knowledge just before Jesus comes.
    Information about the coming days are being revealed in an unpresidented way now. If you love the coming ov the Lord and are looking for His coming, you will know what is going on in the world and how it goes along with the end times prophecy. I can almost hear the sound of the trumpet call and the voice of Jesus saying, “Come up Hither”. Even so, come quickly Lord and let YOur will be done. God bless all who are preparing for His coming

    First of all, Jesus is not a prophet. So stop addressing Him as that. He is the Savior or Christ. A prophet is one who fortells the coming of Christ or the Savior. After the birth of Christ there was no need for anymore prophets for the Savior’s birth has been fulfilled. As for Mohammed, he is just a sinner like the rest of us.

    Why shouldn’t Christianity merge with ANY other beliefs?

    2 Corinthians 6:14-17:

    Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?15And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? 16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you.

    The danger here is that your redeemed love-mindedness will compromise your beliefs to accommodate the carnal thinking of a non-believer. A heartfelt compromise could start off as a small crack of reaching out towards others but most definitely will end up as a fault-line of unbelief for you. God told the Israelites in the Old Testament, Numbers 33:55, not to take ANY of the Canaanites captives(women & children included), pretty harsh, that they will be “thorn’s in your sides”. In Ex 34: 12-17 and Ex 23: 31-32 God said: “do not make any covenants with the Amorites, Canaanites, Hittites, Jebusites”, who are the ancestors of the modern day Muslims. Wisdom sometimes seems too simple when it’s right in front of our eyes but God does speak to us through His Word. And yes, we’re now in the New Testament but we should be as wise as a serpent and to know his ways. Hold fast to your faith and to the principles of Jesus. Love, pray, be kind to ALL people, give them food and shelter but don’t make it a marriage until THEY make the commitment. Think about it, isn’t that what has happened to America over the last several decades, compromise. The enemy has been busy! Remember, Jesus asked that of the last days, “will I find any faith when I return”? As for me and my house, I will serve the Lord! I will do my utmost to walk in love towards ANYONE but at the same time, not compromise the principles of God. Folks, be strong in the Lord and in the power of HIS might! See you all in the air soon, God Bless!

    Chrislam is the ONE WORLD FALSE RELIGION! The elitists are frantically busy trying to merge everything together, yet we see them beginning to Crumble (EU)because so many are given the Revelation of Jesus Christ!
    Throughout history, Islam has taught to lie to infidels, the end justifies the means. That was why Thomas Jefferson obtained a Koran, so he could understand their ideology in war and religious beliefs. There is a really good program called “Faith In History” on TCT with Dr. William Federer. He has researched extensively and explains the conflicts of Christianity, Judism and Islam throughout history. The Muslims thru history have conquered Christian countries, taken the most prominent churches and synogues and converted them to mosques as a symbol of their conquering the region, and then tortured, raped and beheaded the citizens of the region. Yeah, real nice loving religion.
    This is the biggest issue with all of the mosques currently in the NYC area, have mushroomed since 9/11, and then the Cordoba House is a symbol to all Muslims that Islam has conconquered NY (or America?). We have a President who professes to be a Christian, yet will NOT put his hand on the Holy Bible when sworn in as POTUS; CANCELLED the National Day of Prayer and then celebrated Rhamadan in the WH (very strange behavior for a Christian); Murdering American citizens abroad without being charged or brought to Justice (ARE WE A NATION OF LAWS OR NOT? Maybe Allawaki was silenced for his knowledge about Obama?)bowed to the Saudi Prince; has declared more than once that America is NOT a Christian Nation and that it is a majority Muslim nation!!!! ENOUGH ALREADY! I don’t agree with him on anything politically, but was willing to give him a chance as our POTUS, but NOW this once great country WILL NOT SURVIVE another 4 years of this kind of non-leadership! If he is a Muslim, he should at least be honest about it, “Ye shall know them by their fruits”! If Mr. Obama really was a Christian, he would know that Jesus Christ is “the WAY, The TRUTH and the LIFE, the ONLY WAY to the ONLY GOD Almighty and the ONLY narrow path to Heaven!”

    There is a great need for Christians to fast and pray and to rebuke strong deception !

    No True man of God will compromise with the false teachings of Chrislam !

    Chrislam preaches Another Jesus !

    Chrislam promotes Another Gospel – A False Gospel- A Strong delusion from the pits of hell !

    The Apostle Paul warned of these false prophets and false Christs !

    In 2 Corinthians 11 verses 1 to 15 we read:

    “…1Would to God ye could bear with me a little in my folly: and indeed bear with me.

    2For I am jealous over you with godly jealousy: for I have espoused you to one husband, that I may present you as a chaste virgin to Christ.

    3But I fear, lest by any means, as the serpent beguiled Eve through his subtilty, so your minds should be corrupted from the simplicity that is in Christ.

    4For if he that cometh preacheth another Jesus, whom we have not preached, or if ye receive another spirit, which ye have not received, or another gospel, which ye have not accepted, ye might well bear with him.

    5For I suppose I was not a whit behind the very chiefest apostles.

    6But though I be rude in speech, yet not in knowledge; but we have been throughly made manifest among you in all things.

    7Have I committed an offence in abasing myself that ye might be exalted, because I have preached to you the gospel of God freely?

    8I robbed other churches, taking wages of them, to do you service.

    9And when I was present with you, and wanted, I was chargeable to no man: for that which was lacking to me the brethren which came from Macedonia supplied: and in all things I have kept myself from being burdensome unto you, and so will I keep myself.

    10As the truth of Christ is in me, no man shall stop me of this boasting in the regions of Achaia.

    11Wherefore? because I love you not? God knoweth.

    12But what I do, that I will do, that I may cut off occasion from them which desire occasion; that wherein they glory, they may be found even as we.

    13For such are false apostles, deceitful workers, transforming themselves into the apostles of Christ.

    14And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.

    15Therefore it is no great thing if his ministers also be transformed as the ministers of righteousness; whose end shall be according to their works…..”.

    In Galatians Chapter 1 verses 1 to 12 , the Apostle Paul said :

    “….1Paul, an apostle, (not of men, neither by man, but by Jesus Christ, and God the Father, who raised him from the dead;)

    2And all the brethren which are with me, unto the churches of Galatia:

    3Grace be to you and peace from God the Father, and from our Lord Jesus Christ,

    4Who gave himself for our sins, that he might deliver us from this present evil world, according to the will of God and our Father:

    5To whom be glory for ever and ever. Amen.

    6I marvel that ye are so soon removed from him that called you into the grace of Christ unto another gospel:

    7Which is not another; but there be some that trouble you, and would pervert the gospel of Christ.

    8But 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.

    9As we said before, so say I now again, if any man preach any other gospel unto you than that ye have received, let him be accursed.

    10For do I now persuade men, or God? or do I seek to please men? for if I yet pleased men, I should not be the servant of Christ.

    11But I certify you, brethren, that the gospel which was preached of me is not after man.

    informed rational freedom loving people have all the reasons in the world to fear islam…

    the twin fogs of political correctness & ignorance must be dispersed before western society better understands this menace. even a brief review of islamic theology & history quickly exposes the deadly roots of this evil ideology.

    Mohamhead was a 7th century murdering warlord who rose to power on a river of blood surrounded by thugs and gangsters using intimidation, violence, deception and trickery to expand their criminal empire while mercilessly suppressing and killing their opponents and enriching themselves on stolen booty.

    The evil koran is a collection of sayings and speeches by this diabolical madman claiming divine guidance from some mythical sky-god which has inspired generations of crazed fanatics to abhorrent behavior resulting in historys worst ever crimes against humanity starting 1400 years ago and still continuing even today.

    Islam is just another fascist totalitarian ideology used by power hungry fanatics on yet another quest for worldwide domination and includes all the usual human rights abuses & suppression of freedoms.

    Here is an example of how what seems to be a contradiction in Scripture can be understood in a way that is both logical and uplifting. It comes from Abdu’l-Baha Abbas, who visited the United States in 1912 and who dedicated his life to bringing people of different traditions to a better understanding of each other. He said:

    …it is plainly said that when John, the son of Zacharias, appeared and gave to men the glad tidings of the Kingdom of God, they asked him, “Who art thou? Art thou the promised Messiah?” He replied, “I am not the Messiah.” Then they asked him, “Art thou Elijah?” He said, “I am not.”* These words prove and show that John, the son of Zacharias, was not the promised Elias. But on the day of the transfiguration on Mount Tabor Christ said plainly that John, the son of Zacharias, was the promised Elias.
    In chapter 9, verses 11-13, of the Gospel of Mark, it is said: “And they asked Him, saying, Why say the scribes that Elias must first come? And He answered and told them, Elias verily cometh first, and restoreth all things; and how it is written of the Son of man, that He must suffer many things, and be set at nought. But I say unto you, That Elias is indeed come, and they have done unto him whatsoever they listed, as it is written of him.”
    In chapter 17, verse 13, of Matthew, it is said: “Then the disciples understood that He spake unto them of John the Baptist.”
    They asked John the Baptist, “Are you Elias?” He answered, “No, I am not,” although it is said in the Gospel that John was the promised Elias, and Christ also said so clearly. Then if John was Elias, why did he say, “I am not”? And if he was not Elias, why did Christ say that he was?
    The explanation is this: not the personality, but the reality of the perfections, is meant — that is to say, the same perfections that were in Elias existed in John the Baptist and were exactly realized in him. Therefore, John the Baptist was the promised Elias. In this case not the essence, but the qualities, are regarded. For example, there was a flower last year, and this year there is also a flower; I say the flower of last year has returned. Now, I do not mean that same flower in its exact individuality has come back; but as this flower has the same qualities as that of last year — as it has the same perfume, delicacy, color and form — I say the flower of last year has returned, and this flower is the former flower. When spring comes, we say last year’s spring has come back because all that was found in last year’s spring exists in this spring. That is why Christ said, “You will see all that happened in the days of the former Prophets.“
    * John 1:19-21

    Couldn’t it be that seemingly contradictory verses found in the Bible and the Quran have equally logical and enlightening meanings, if we only understood them better?

    Deception always has been, is now, and always will be the primary weapon used by Satan to deceive those who refuse to believe in Christ. Scripture aptly describes the proponents of “Chrislam” as those who are “Ever learning but never able to come to the knowledge of the truth.”. Again, it is written, “And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie; that they all might be damned who believed not the truth,but had pleasure in unrighteousness. “It is a fearful thing to fall into the hands of the living God”, especially when you have heaped scorn, disrespect and unbelief on His son,who died for all of us. “Finally, Scripture admonishes all men to “kiss the son, lest he be angry, and you perish from the way, when His wrath is kindled but a little. To those who believe and accept Christ is the final promise delivered. “Blessed are all they that put their trust in Him” (Psalms 2:12.)

    I would know a tree from it’s fruit. No comparison between Allah and our God or YESHUA (Jesus Christ) and Mohamed. See Allah’s 99 names in Koran. See the barbarian history of Mohamed and his followers. Do we want to serve a God who is a real father and sent his son to die for us, or do we want to be a slaves of Allah who want us to die for him that he may live. I always opt for the first choice and Lord Jesus Christ can’t come soon enough for me. Allah wants slaves in hell, our God wants family members in heaven and earth. No to chrislam, we can’t serve two opposite forces same time.

    As I read this articale I was thinking of the many different religions that name the name of Jesus yet view the cannons of the bible open such as many of the Charismatic churches who quote, use the same language as of, “god is telling me” and or ascribing things to the Holy Spirit which are not of the Holy Spirit. In short, false teachings. And then I considered Jehovah Witness who do not see Jesus equal to God but nothing more than a profit of God. In the Jehovah Witness book of John, (1) a separation of God and Jesus can not be mistaken. Then I consider the Catolic Church who make the Virgin Mary a co redeemer to Jesus. More false teaching. Then the Mormon Church and the book of Mormons, more false teachings.
    The point is this: Most who name the name of Jesus do not want the truth of the bible as it is written. They want a custom truth that matches there personal feelings or views. Everyone seems to be more interested in being “right than being correct” about what the bible says.
    As I see it chrislam will be nothing new. Just another false teaching that custom matches peoples personal wants or rights or right than being correct. May God have some sort of mercy on those folks who will be damned forever.
    Only one way to Heaven. “Only one way”.

    Here is my problem, i understand the issue with Chrislam, but im not going to go for or against it. Why? Because as Americans we celebrate Christmas, the Wrong New Year, Easter, etc. This is a combination of Christian beliefs with Pagan beliefs. So either i need to be against Chrislam and Christmas, or be against nothing.

    There is no atonement, no forgiveness,no salvation and no assurance of going to heaven – ie. no hope- what is the attraction to such a religion? Why would any thinking,reasoning,rational human being even WANT to embrace such a religion?What is the point? If you dedicate yourself to this ‘god’, are steadfast, obey the rules, do loads of good works and STILL don’t know if you’re going to make it to heaven, why on earth would you even consider following such a ‘deity’? Would that not cause you to question the motivations of such a ‘god’? In Jesus we have all of the above – atonement,forgiveness,salvation and the assurance of the privilege of sharing Paradise with Him. Not to mention how He gives us the Holy Spirit and how He comforts and cares for and looks out for us. When you understand the character of God and know who you are in Christ, you KNOW where you will be spending eternity. There are no doubts.I will praise Him for He is holy. He is my Bright Morning Star!

    Jesus Himself said in Luke 12:51-53

    ‘Do you suppose that I came to give peace on earth? I tell you, not at all but rather division. For from now on five in one house will be divided: three against two, and two against three. “Father will be divided against son and son against father, mother against daughter and daughter against mother, mother-in-law against daughter-in-law and daughter-in-law against mother-in-law.”

    And that’s just the beginning, like “How can light have fellowship with darkness? Or, How can two walk together except they be agreed? and it goes on from there. Yes, love your enemies and pray for them but how is it possible to walk in agreement? I think Mr. Warren is climbing up the WRONG tree! I will be praying for him as God leads.. He needs to re-examine his walk with the Lord Jesus Christ of Nazareth!

    There is a true difference between the Holy bible, and the Quran. the bible says that Jesus is God: And without controversy great is the mystery of godliness: God was manifest in the flesh, justified in the Spirit, seen of angels, preached unto the Gentiles, believed on in the world, received up into glory. 1 Timothy 3:16

    Therefore the Lord himself shall give you a sign; Behold, a virgin shall conceive, and bear a son, and shall call his name Immanuel. Isaiah 7:14 (written: 712 BC (Before Christ)

    Behold, a virgin shall be with child, and shall bring forth a son, and they shall call His name Emmanuel, which being interpreted is, God with us. Matthew 1:23

    For unto us a Child is born, unto us a son is given; and the government will be upon His shoulder: and his name will be called Wonderful, Counsellor, The mighty God, The everlasting Father, The Prince of Peace. Isaiah 9:6 (written: 712 BC (Before Christ)

    And there came a fear on all: and they glorified God, saying, That a great prophet is risen up among us; and, That God hath visited his people. Luke 7:16

    In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. John 1:1

    because he had not only broken the sabbath, but said also that God was his Father, making Himself equal with God. John 5:18

    Jesus said:
    I and my Father are one. John 10:30

    The Jews answered him [Jesus], saying, For a good work we stone thee not; but for blasphemy; and because that thou, being a man, makest thyself God. John 10:33

    When many were about to stone Jesus for blasphemy (John 10:30-39), He said to them that said he blasphemed “because I said, I am the Son of God?” (John 10:36).

    You call Me Teacher and Lord; and ye say well; for so I Am. John 13:13

    But he held his peace, and answered nothing. Again the high priest asked him, and said unto him, Art thou the Christ, the Son of the Blessed?
    And Jesus said, I Am: and ye shall see the Son of man sitting on the right hand of power, and coming in the clouds of heaven. Mark 14:61-62

    The LORD said unto my Lord, Sit thou at my right hand, until I make thine enemies thy footstool. Psalm 110:1

    he that hath seen me hath seen the Father; and how sayest thou then, Shew us the Father? John 14:9

    “Do you not believe that I am in the Father, and the Father in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority; but the Father who dwells in me does his works.” ( John 14:10)

    And now, O Father, glorify thou me with thine own self with the glory which I had with thee before the world was. John 17:5

    And Thomas answered and said unto him [Jesus], My Lord and my God. John 20:28

    …lest the light of the glorious gospel of Christ, who is the image of God, should shine unto them. 2 Corinthians 4:4

    In whom we have redemption through his blood, even the forgiveness of sins: Who is the image of the invisible God, the firstborn of every creature: For by him were all things created, that are in heaven, and that are in earth, visible and invisible, whether they be thrones, or dominions, or principalities, or powers: all things were created by him, and for him: And he is before all things, and by him all things consist. Colossians 1:14-17 how will they resolve that without comprimising the word of the holy bible.Are pastors actualy going to continue these services under the guise of peace or admit they have become fearful of hate crimes and terror in this country fear is not the answer JESUS IS THE ONLY WAY.

    In the Quaran The Death of Jesus Christ on the Cross is Denied.
    Anyone trying to disprove the death and resurrection of Jesus puts the whole doctrine of God’s plan of Salvation in question.
    Islam does not recognise the Divinity of Christ so I cannot understand How two can walk together unless they agree.

    The other aspect is that to date I have not had any scholar of Islam explain why in the Quran the personal pronouns of God is always in the PLURAL, WE, US, OUR.
    It is also strange that whilst they will not bow to any prophet, angel, or man but in the second coming of Jesus they will fall down and worship him as redeemer of mankind.
    Why would you bow to Him if He is not GOD?
    The Bible says every eye shall see him and every knee shall bow.

    It wouldn’t take much to see thru the hypocrisy of Islam if you as a christian has some understanding concerning Israel’s return as a nation from a biblical perspective. I don’t think the word Israel was mentioned once in the whole article. Yet the Bible makes clear Israel is the root of the founding of the Christian faith which are the branches forming for us a divine making of the Tree of Life in Christ which God has call us to have our freedom and eternal life in.

    Bring that subject up for discussion and watch the change and contradictory behavior of the Muslims. To align with Islam is to break emphatically from our true root as a religion. Such an act will be in defiance of the God of Israel whom we serve. Read Matthew Ch24 and hear the words from Christ Himself about the rise in anti-Semitism for they will be hated of all nations. Be careful ‘christians” with who we become companions with.

    Lawlessness is the real problem of the Church in the Western World. It is because the Church does not obey the Commands of God that they are now open to non-sense such as “Chrislam”. Once a believer determines for him/herself where the “Holidays” and “traditions” of the modern Christian Church come from they then will see that “they have believed the lies taught to their fathers” “Jesus” – or Ya’oshua (modern day Joshua) as His Father called Him obeyed the Torah as did His disciples. He wrote the Law on our Hearts as prophesied in Jeremiah 31 so that we could obey it out of gratitude and love for Him. A lawless church is one that errs and goes its’ own way.
