Default Are Church leaders affirming Allah?

http://www.wnd.com/index.php?fa=PAGE.view&pageId=108151

Quote:
Has anyone noticed how hundreds of professing Christian leaders are compromising their faith by uniting with Muslims? Could it be that we are witnessing the formation of the prophesied one-world religion under the Antichrist? (Revelation 13:1-18)

For example, Brian McLaren, a prominent Emerging Church leader, announced plans to celebrate the Islamic holiday Ramadan, commemorating Muhammad's reception of the Quran. On the Fourth of July, when most Americans were celebrating the birth of our nation, Rick Warren, "America's Pastor," addressed the Islamic Society of North America, which, the Department of Justice categorized two years ago as a co-conspirator in financing a foreign terrorist group!

Another Emerging Church leader, Tony Campolo, a proponent of the so-called "evangelical left" claimed that "even if" Muslims "don't convert, they are God's people." Campolo further declared, "A theology of mysticism provides some hope for common ground between Christianity and Islam." ("Speaking My Mind," page 149). Campolo, like McLaren and Warren, has a habit of compromising biblical truth to forge unholy alliances with sworn enemies of the Gospel. Campolo admitted, "Consequently, anyone who accuses me of violating the biblical message is correct!" ("A Reasonable Faith," page 190)


Even more chilling is the fact that over 300 prominent Christian leaders signed a letter issued by the Yale Center for Faith and Culture claiming that world peace is dependent on Muslims and Christians recognizing "Allah" and "Yahweh" as the same God. This letter, titled "Loving God and Neighbor Together," was written in response to a signed document by 138 Muslim leaders titled "A Common Word Between Us and You." McLaren, Warren, Robert Schuller and Bill Hybels were just several of the signatories to this outright betrayal of Christ!

Furthermore, both of these documents affirmed Muhammed as a "Prophet" of God and declared that world peace was dependant on mutual affirmation of the "unity" of God. Dr. William Lane Craig, a leading Christian apologist and philosopher, correctly stated that by signing this document, Rick Warren and others were, in effect, signing up to become Muslims! This is because an affirmation of Allah as God is a denial of the Triune God revealed in Holy Scripture. Moreover, the Quran denies that Jesus is the Son of God no less than nine times.

The Islamic "Common Word" document, in effect, calls on Christians to affirm the Islamic understanding of the unity of God as a precondition to achieving world peace. Part and parcel of implementing Shariah law around the world is the imposition of the worship of Allah worldwide:

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. (Quran, Sura 4:171)

Incredibly, the very title of the Muslim document, "A Common Word Between Us and You," is actually taken from a Quranic verse that calls for Christian's ("people of the book") to deny the Trinity (so-called "partners") and to submit to Allah as the one true God:

O People of the Book! Come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but Allah; that we associate no partners with him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than Allah. (Quran, Sura 3:64)


Could it be that this "Common Word" document is part of a master deception? Islamic scholars teach that Muslims may engage in "taqiyya," which holds that Muslims may lie to unbelievers to defeat them. After all, the Quran states that "Allah is the best of schemers" (Quran 3:54), and Muhammad used deception when he signed a 10-year treaty with the Meccans while preparing for their defeat just two years later, executing many who had given him their misguided trust (Quran 9:3).

The "Common Word" document was issued from the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought of Jordan. This same Institute has posted a number of fatwas condemning Christians to death for leaving Islam. So much for peace and tolerance! The Islamic concept of peace is tied to submission to Allah. However, God forewarned that the world would be saying "peace and safety" and given over to a "strong delusion" in the last days prior to Christ's return (1 Thessalonians 5:3; 2 Thessalonians 2:9-12). This is very significant because the Bible states that the last days' delusion will revolve around the spirit of the Antichrist, identified in Scripture as denial of the Father and the Son! (1 John 2:18-22; 4:1-4)

Very interesting article. While I agree we need more understanding in the world, it seems like these "Church Leaders" are compromising their faith.

The emergent church scares me almost as much as Islam.

The fact that Allah denies Christ as his son simply means that Allah=Satan.

You can't worship GOD and Satan, thus Christianity and Islam are completely incompatible.

Here's all that comes to my mind...

"For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but after their own lusts shall they heap to themselves teachers, having itching ears; and they shall turn away their ears from the truth, and shall be turned unto fables." 2Timothy 4:3-4

Allah as the Arabic Word for GOD which might be used by Arab Christians is one thing

Allah as in the attributes given to GOD by Islam are false...but perfectly understandable with their relatively diminished amount of revelation.

Firstly, it is natural that Allah be seen as "ONE GOD" because His basis of Being is taken from Yahweh. This is because Historically Jews and Muslims share the same Family, but progress through different Lineages. They are Cousins in Blood. So the start will be the same.

Secondly, it is natural that Allah be seen in the same light as GOD the Father, because the distinction blew apart between Jew and Muslin (not called Muslim, but the rest of the family which GOD did not endorse, but actively removed from leadership TWICE) happenedafter the Torah had taken place, but before it was written down. For when it was written down, GOD is not just GOD, neither is he Just Yahweh...he is a Specific Version of the Yahweh Persona and Attributes, and those held to by Abraham, Issiac and Jacob, spelling out the TRUE linage, and thus which Attributes are Real Yahweh, and which are False Yahweh.

Thirdly, the Christians recognise the Trinity, but they dont actually spend a lot of time affirming that Christ and GOD are the same. From even a Jewish point of view, the believef in Trinity, or Triune, is missunderstood as a belief in Three gods, and thus, cant possibly be ANY version of Yahweh, whether truthful (Jew) or False (Islamic)


So that is how it has come about that Although all three religions are trying to speak about the same GOD, Yahweh cant possibly be behind all of those attributes. The Islamic Version is the oldest and most archaic version of mans attempt to categorise GOD, even though its the newest Religion, it harks back to Yahweh before the Jews...a simple believef in a single diety was all that was needed. That GOD never truely existed. It seemed as though he did because he didnt reveal himself but as a booming voice from the sky, with words of direction and authority. The Jewish Version of Yahweh is also Archaic. But he has revealed himself enough to give a Law, and to choose a lineage, to reject some, and to save others. This GOD never truely existed either, he was simply slightly more revealed then the Islamic Version

BOTH Versions are false, neither really show you anything important about Yahweh, neither will lead you into His Salvation in this chronological period of time. He hasnt been saving people under the Islamic Version since Issiac, and he hasnt been Saving anyone under the Jewish Version sinse the Maccabean assult.

Now Christianity is Complete Yahweh...and because its indepth revelation, it appears to contridict those former notions. With the True Yahweh, you have the Oneness of the Islamic Believef, you have the Chosen race and Law of the Jewish Faith...but you also have Christ and the Trinetic Personalities within the GODhead.

Each version ceased to be on completion of the next level of revelation.

Yahweh Mark One resembles Allah
Yahweh Mark Two resembles Yahweh/Jew
Yahweh Mark Three resembles Yahweh/Christ

Who he is, is reflected in the final testament. Who we thought he was in the past, is at best missleading (Jew) at worst complete lie (Islam)

But we should be believing AS PASSIONATLEY as them that there is only ONE GOD, and we should make sure that Christondom remembers this, or else I think there are many Christians who DO basically, for ease, treat the Trinity as if they were Three, when they are infact One.
