INTERFAITH RELIGIOUS PLURALISM
The interfaith pluralism of "A Common Word" suggests that there is "A Common Word Between Us and Them", in regard to the Gospel of the Messiah Yeshua, and the denial of it in the false prophet Muhammad's antichrist Quran, that blasphemes the Son of God, denies His crucifixion death and resurrection, and and thus rejects the saving grace of His shed blood - the whole subject of the Gospel, and indeed the whole Bible. What would Jesus say? What did Jesus say?
John 14:6 Jesus saith unto him, I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me.
As we review the list of signatories at "A Common Word", first on the list we find the "'spiritual leader' of the Muslims of Nigeria", where Christians continue to be viciously persecuted and slaughtered by Muslims through Islamic Jihad. But then what should we otherwise expect in countries with antichrist leaders, regardless of how wishful they are, as is evidenced throughout the Muslim world and over the last 1400 years?
Perhaps the biggest lie insinuated by the "ACW Letter" as well as "Christian" responses thereto, is suggestion that Christians and Muslims are somehow equally culpable for violence around the world. This even as the Quran and Islamic texts specifically command Muhammad's followers to fight, terrorize and slay non-Muslims, while Christians are commanded to not only love our neighbors but even to love our enemies. Islamic State Muslims are out there beheading Christian children for not renouncing Jesus Christ, while Mercy Ships and other Christian organizations are helping and healing the most broken among us, and freeing those pressed into slavery by orthodox Muslims. The evil, murderous and purely reprobate imperialistic aggression, resides with the side of Islam alone. Simply wishing Islam were peaceful, in spite of 1400 years of Islamic history and as Islam is revealed around the world today, is as foolish as having wished the same of Adolf Hitler and his Islamic Mufti of Jerusalem.
From the Hoover Institute: "Few people realize that we are today living through the largest persecution of Christians in history, worse even than the famous attacks under ancient Roman emperors like Diocletian and Nero. Estimates of the numbers of Christians under assault range from 100-200 million."
"And most of this persecution is taking place at the hands of Muslims. Of the top fifty countries persecuting Christians, forty-two have either a Muslim majority or have sizeable Muslim populations."
CNS reports: "Sunni Muslim terrorists committed “about 70 percent” of the 12,533 terrorist murders in the world last year, according to a report by the National Counterterrorism Center (NCTC)." That was for the year 2011, and that percentage didn't even include Shiite Muslim terrorist murders. Thus it should not be difficult for all non-Muslims to see, that the world would be largely at peace today, if the followers of Muhammad had not been commanded to "fight and slay" non-Muslims in the "cause" of his "Allah".
It should be obvious at least to Christians, that the only way the world will find any semblance of peace is if Muhammad's followers come to know the love of the one true God through a relationship with Jesus Christ, and thus abandon the counter-scriptural, unhistorical, geographically impossible, lies of Islam. Self-proclaimed Christians being involved in "A Common Word" without that goal, is perhaps just more evidence of the prophesied "falling away" or apostasy in the "church" and feel-good kum by yah of the truth-challenged interfaith dialoging pluralists listed on the page titled "Christian endorsements", who not surprisingly would seem to hail largely from supersessionist and anti-Zionist institutions.
Dialogue between peace desiring Muslims and Christians is a waste of time, since all Christians are commanded to love our neighbors, and even love our enemies. All that any such misguided dialogue can be expected to accomplish, is for Muslims to advance their goal, of silencing the truth of the Gospel while advancing the lies of Islam. To make honest and open conversation about Muhammad and Islam a violation of international law. Additionally, all any Muslim with a capacity to be honest with themselves has to do, is investigate the absence of a history of Mecca prior to the 4th century AD, the geographical and demographic impossibility of Islamic fables about Abraham, Hagar and Ishmael - or put an honest effort into reading the Gospel - to easily overcome the stand-alone false prophet Muhammad's, stand-alone, counter-Gospel, anti-religion.
The only hope for constructive dialogue, in regard to mitigating the murderous violence of imperialistic aggression around the world, must necessarily be a dialogue between Muslims that vainly wish Islam were a religion of peace - which may even include a few of the Muslim signatories of "A Common Word" - and the hundreds of millions of Muslims around the world who fully understand it is Islam's 1400 year mission to conquer all kingdoms through imperialistic aggression and subjugate all people to Muhammad's followers, that consider those peace wishing Muslims to be hypocrites and/or apostates. The orthodox Muslims who understand that Muslims are to do as Muhammad did and commanded his followers to do.
The Muslims of "A Common Word" need to take their argument to Islamic scholars, like the head of the Islamic State Abu Bakr Al-Baghdadi or Muhammad Hussein Yacoub, and to other Sunni leaders like those of Boco Haram in Nigeria, and to the terrorist scholars of the prestigous Al-azhar University. ".....most of the students at the university, which is located in Cairo, belong to the Muslim Brotherhood, which is designated as a terrorist organization by the Egyptian government." If the Muslims of "A Common Word" fear engaging in dialogue with orthodox Muslims like those listed, then it cannot be argued that the ultimate arbiters of Muhammad's anti-religion, will obviously be those that wield the biggest beheading knives who are supported by the Quran and Hadith. Not that it can be otherwise reasonably argued who the ultimate arbiters of Islam would be. Who the ultimate arbiter within the religion of Islam obviously is, which is the father of lies himself - Satan.
To those who believe themselves to be Christians, who through a misguided and misplaced "tolerance" for the antichrist religion of Islam are involved in this tacit endorsement of the false prophet Muhammad, can you possibly be in such abject ignorance as to not even know that the Quran specifically prohibits Muslims from taking Jews and Christians for friends?
Sura 5:51 ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust.
What could be worse than for a Muslim to be "OF" Christians, since they are taught that to confess that Jesus is the Son of God or even to pray in Jesus' name, would constitute the single-most "heinous" and ONLY unforgivable sin of "shirk" in Mohammed's anti-religion.
"In other words, any Muslim who becomes a Christian or even befriends a Christian leaves the leadership and control of Allah.
So, all Islamic leaders who come to British and American Church leaders for inter-faith co-operation are either defying the instructions of Allah or they have a hidden agenda." - G.J.O. Moshay "Who is This Allah?" - a Nigerian who knows first-hand how Islam operates. More of the quote at that link.
Thus while engaging in religious dissimulation to further their goal Muslims put up a false facade of friendship, which is their way when setting out to conquer ignorant and unwary well-wishing, through lies and deception. With everyone involved in "A Common Word", running and hiding from the truth, by ignoring the 800 pound gorilla in the room. That truth being that it is as impossible to reconcile the Gospel with Muhammad's specific denial of it's whole subject, as it is to equate the behavior of Muhammad with that of the sinless Passover Lamb of God, who gave Himself to save us all. The Messiah who IS TRUTH itself.
The only bridges that are allowed to be built between the imperialistic political beast of Islam and anything else, are one-way bridges to Islam alone, as is increasingly being accomplished through the ecumenical interfaith lies of Islamic dissimulation and "taqiyyah". When asked about it Muhammad's followers will even lie about Islamic lying and oath-breaking.
Here is what this organization considers as: "Fruitful" on the "New Fruits" page:
"A Common Word has received numerous awards, has been the basis for many resolutions and peace initiatives, and gave birth to the UN World Interfaith Harmony Week, and much more:
Resolutions and peace initiatives
UN World Interfaith Harmony Week
Praise from a Godless U.N. with more false promises of "peace", through capitulation of honesty to oath-breakers, while being deceived by the 1400 year enemy of all mankind. Are the self-proclaimed Christians involved in "A Common Word" preaching Christ crucified and proclaiming the Son of God to Muslims? Ya, right. They obviously have to avoid it like the plague. But for the rest of us that stand up for the truth:
1Co 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
1Co 2:2 For I determined not to know any thing among you, save Jesus Christ, and him crucified.
1Jo 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
1Jo 5:12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life.
Jhn 8:36 If the Son therefore shall make you free, ye shall be free indeed.
Do the deluded self-proclaimed Christians in "A Common Word Between Us and Them" realize they are being paraded through the streets in an oxcart operated by their Islamic masters, as useful dupes to the derision of Muhammad's followers, like those associated with the "Washington National Cathedral" in D.C.?
"He [Dr. Andrew Bostom] said the verses that Imam Ebrahim Rasool, who is South Africa’s ambassador to the U.S., read to those gathered for Friday’s “call to prayer” were familiar to Muslims but probably did not resonate with many Christians. The verses are widely interpreted by the Muslim hadiths and Quranic commentaries as stinging rebukes of Christianity and Judaism, Bostom said. The hadiths are the written reports of the teachings of Muhammad."
"Rasool quoted only the latter portion of Quran 5:82, which says 'you will find the nearest in love to the believers (Muslims) those who say: ‘We are Christians.' That is because amongst them are priests and monks, and they are not arrogant.'
But Rasool cleverly omitted the opening half of 5:82: “Verily, you will find the strongest among men in enmity to the believers (Muslims) the Jews and those who are Al-Mushrikun (i.e., ‘idolatrous’ Hindus, Buddhists and Animists).”
However he seemed to not be able to resist the temptation to humiliate the useful dupes that foolishly hosted him with Quran 3:26: “Say ‘O Allah! Possessor of the kingdom, You give the kingdom to whom You will, and You take the kingdom from whom You will, and You endue with honor whom You will, and You humiliate whom You will. In Your Hand is the good. Verily, You are Able to do all things.’
"Following Rasool’s sermon, a verse from the opening chapter of the Quran, the Fatiha, was recited. It doesn't specify Christians or Jews, but authoritative commentaries by Muslim scholars interpret it as a reference to members of the two religions.
'That verse, 1:7, is repeated by believing Muslims 17 times a day. It’s a curse on Christianity and Jews,' Bostom said. 'But it is more subtle than some of the other verses in the Quran, because it says those who have engendered Allah’s anger, the Jews, and those who've gone astray, the Christians, if you look back to the very first exegeses of the Quran, that’s exactly how Muslims are taught to interpret this verse, that they are following the correct path and those allegedly following the religions closest to them are wrong.'”
"So the prayer spoken over the participants in Friday’s Muslim service by Rasool reminded Muslims they are blessed while Christians and Jews are forsaken.
By citing 3:26 from the Quran, Rasool was clearly making a point about who Allah chose to humiliate, Bostom said."
While it seems to have been rendered into dysfunction since the earlier inclusion on this webpage, another example of interfaith pluralism during this "falling away", was the "International Interfaith Council". We had written:
Let's take a look at this effort in religious pluralism as advanced on their website at http://www.iicouncil.org. Their list of "Council Members" includes several Christian Pastors, whom it's hard to imagine have ever visited the website they are associated with. When we click on the link to the International Interfaith Council webpage "Three Holy Books" we find listed the "Qur'an" "Torah" and "Bible", which is peculiar enough, since the Torah is included in the Christian Bible. Jews and Christians share our Old Testament Scriptures, and believe them to be the inspired Word of God, while Muhammad's followers proclaim them to have been "corrupted". When we click on the "Bible" link we find a page that begins like this:
"Opening- True Gospel of Jesus, called Christ, a new prophet sent by God to the world: according to the description of Barnabas his apostle."
Now that certainly looks peculiar to a Scripture-literate Christian, particularly when announced as the "opening" of the "Bible". When we copy and paste the above verse into a search engine we find it is "The Gospel of Barnabas". So the International Interfaith Council "Bible" page was deceptively titled "Bible", rather than having been honestly titled, "The Gospel of Barnabas". Of course not only does this Gospel of Barnabas not constitute the "Bible", but there is no Gospel of Barnabas to be found anywhere in the Bible because it is a 16th century, Muhammadan forgery. It is nothing more than an exercise in religious dissimulation or taqiyyah, that embarrasses anyone that has been foolish enough to tout it, prior to actually reading it or learning about it.
So why would the "International Interfaith Council" provide that false gospel as representing the "Bible" rather than link to an actual Bible, such as the most widely recognized and respected King James Version, as presented on many websites such as at Blue Letter Bible? Could it be they fear that folks browsing their website would then have access to truth? If they had chosen the Gospel of Mark to represent the "Bible", rather than the phony gospel of Barnabas, this is how their "Bible" page might have started:
Opening- Mark 1:1 The beginning of the gospel of Jesus Christ, the Son of God;
Of course that would have spoiled the party, because followers of Muhammad suggest that to believe and confess that Jesus is the Son or God, is to commit the most egregious, and only unforgivable sin of "shirk". According to many, even to pray in Jesus' name would constitute this unforgivable sin, as compared to child rape or cold-blooded mass murder which may be forgiven. The sin of "shirk" is further explored on that page of this site. Yet the Gospel proclaims:
1John 4:15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
Matthew 18:20 For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them.
Thus it would seem that according to Muhammad's followers, each and every Christian throughout a period of nearly 2,000 years, has lived and died, in a state of committing Muhammad's only unforgivable sin. Would Muhammad's seem to be a just God, when raping a little girl or cold-blooded mass-murder may constitute forgivable sins, while praying in Jesus' name is unforgivable? Can we begin to understand who such a Jesus-hating, jealous, opposite being would be?
2Corinthians 11:14 And no marvel; for Satan himself is transformed into an angel of light.
Yet not only does the website of the International Interfaith Council select a preposterous 16th century demonstrable fraud to represent the "Bible", here is what that abomination teaches, in chapter 97:
"Then said the priest: `How shall the Messiah be called, and what sign shall reveal his coming?'
Jesus answered: `The name of the Messiah is admirable, for God himself gave him the name when he had created his soul, and placed it in a celestial splendour. God said: "Wait Mohammed; for thy sake I will to create paradise, the world, and a great multitude of creatures, whereof I make thee a present, insomuch that whoso bless thee shall be blessed, and whoso shall curse thee shall be accursed. When I shall send thee into the world I shall send thee as my messenger of salvation, and thy word shall be true, insomuch that heaven and earth shall fail, but thy faith shall never fail." Mohammed is his blessed name.'
Then the crowd lifted up their voices, saying: `O God, send us thy messenger: O Mohammed, come quickly for the salvation of the world!'"
Pure raw unadulterated blasphemy! Indeed that 16th century abomination, should be recognized as pure blasphemy even to a follower of Muhammad, as they are taught that Jesus is the Messiah.
To those who believe themselves to be Christians that are listed in the member page of the "International Interfaith Council" website, which tacitly suggests a presumption of support for the abominations advanced therein through association, you desperately need to repent from this interfaith abomination.
As much as Christians might wish to, it is impossible to reconcile the Gospel to the exact opposite of its whole subject. Perhaps a very public denouncement of the International Interfaith Council is in order for those Christians to begin their penitence, as well as an apology to Jesus Christ, and renouncement of this abomination.
If Christian members believe this rebuke to be inappropriate, simply explain before Jesus Christ and your Christian brethren, just how it is you lend your support to an organization that represents the "Bible", as being the Gospel of Barnabas. Please feel free to contact us in the Islam-Christian Forum to present your position if you believe it to be defensible.
Romans 3:8 And not [rather], (as we be slanderously reported, and as some affirm that we say,) Let us do evil, that good may come? whose damnation is just.
Would it even be slanderous for someone to report that is what Christian members of the International Interfaith Council may be doing, perhaps while avoiding the whole subject of the Gospel rather than preaching Christ crucified, which would be an obvious deal breaker? That verse does, however, describe what we find typical of Islamic religious dissimulation, found throughout the Internet and youtube communities, as exampled by their "Baca" is "Bakkah" nonsense. Has it been so long since Christian members of this council have picked up a bible that they've forgotten what's at stake? You could stand in judgment this very day.
Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
More Taqiyyah or Subterfuge of Dissimulation (URL)
Taqiyyah and the subterfuge of religious dissimilation is advanced in the very opening of the home page of the website through a false proclamation base on a partial quote:
"The world has been divided into religious groups. However, the order of God is clear: 'Do not divide into groups!'"
Putting that quote into a web search we find it may come from the "Worldwide English" translation. But what does the rest of 1Corinthians 1:10 say from that same version?
"My Christian brothers, I beg you all in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, agree in what you say. Do not divide into groups. You should all think in the same way and decide to do the same things."
It has absolutely nothing to do with Muhammad's followers, but has to do with Christians "in the name of our Lord Jesus Christ", to avoid making divisions amongst ourselves. Paul was addressing the church in Corinth. He also taught that Christians should all "think in the same way and decide to do the same things", which first and foremost, is to believe in and preach Christ crucified:
1Corinthians 1:23 But we preach Christ crucified, unto the Jews a stumblingblock, and unto the Greeks foolishness;
The most obvious reason it has nothing to do with the followers of the false prophet Muhammad is because Muhammad proclaimed the exact opposite of the whole subject of the Gospel.
God manifest Himself in His Son, our Savior Jesus Christ, to reconcile the whole world unto Himself.
John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
1John 4:14 And we have seen and do testify that the Father sent the Son [to be] the Saviour of the world. 15 Whosoever shall confess that Jesus is the Son of God, God dwelleth in him, and he in God.
Yet if a follower of Muhammad were to make that simple confession he would be committing the most egregious - and only unforgivable sin - according to Muhammad alone.
Indeed the Gospel teaches that Christians are to expect the very opposite of that proclaimed in the opening of the International Interfaith Council website:
Luke 12:51 Suppose ye that I am come to give peace on earth? I tell you, Nay; but rather division: 52 For from henceforth there shall be five in one house divided, three against two, and two against three. 53 The father shall be divided against the son, and the son against the father; the mother against the daughter, and the daughter against the mother; the mother in law against her daughter in law, and the daughter in law against her mother in law.
We find those verses perfectly fulfilled in Muhammad's follower's "honor killing" of parents murdering their own children for the "apostasy" of beginning a life in Jesus Christ. Satan's forces have aligned against Christ the Messiah and his followers ever since He was made manifest to the world.
Ephesians 6:10 Finally, my brethren, be strong in the Lord, and in the power of his might. 11 Put on the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to stand against the wiles of the devil. 12 For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against spiritual wickedness in high places. 13 Wherefore take unto you the whole armour of God, that ye may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all, to stand. 14 Stand therefore, having your loins girt about with truth, and having on the breastplate of righteousness; 15 And your feet shod with the preparation of the gospel of peace; 16 Above all, taking the shield of faith, wherewith ye shall be able to quench all the fiery darts of the wicked. 17 And take the helmet of salvation, and the sword of the Spirit, which is the word of God: 18 Praying always with all prayer and supplication in the Spirit, and watching thereunto with all perseverance and supplication for all saints;
What else does the "Worldwide Version" say?
1John 2:22 Who then is the one who says what is not true? It is the one who says that Jesus is not the Christ. That person is against Christ, because he says there is no Father and there is no Son. 23 Everyone who says Jesus is not the Son does not know the Father. And everyone who says Jesus is the Son knows the Father.
If their minds weren't consumed by the spirit of antichrist, and truth outlawed as blasphemy in Islamic countries, the absence of a pre 4th century AD history of Mecca alone, would be enough to cause a person with any capacity for critical thinking whatsoever to run from the Quraish pagan's black stone idol like a scalded dog rather than prostrating toward it five times a day.
The 7th century Islamic Fiction of "Hanaf" or "faith of Abraham" (URL)
Contrary to what is indicated on the website, Christians follow the religion of Jesus Christ through the Gospel, not a fictional religion called "Hanaf" that sprang from the imagination of a 7th century SW Arabian desert dwelling illiterate. The suggestion of "Hanaf" or a "religion of Abraham" comes from Islamic so-called "tradition" advanced through books penned in the 7th to 10th centuries AD without reference to any actual historical record that preceded the 6th century AD. In fact there is not a shred of historical or archaeological evidence that suggests that Mecca - the epicenter of Muhammad's religion allegedly since Adam - ever existed before the 4th century AD. Abraham did not practice a "religion", but rather had a direct relationship with YHWH Himself, even while manifest in the flesh. Indeed law of the ten commandments was given to Moses, not Abraham. Let alone that the only promise given to the seed of Ishmael is that they would be numerous, while being prophesied to be against all mankind.
Genesis 16:10 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, I will multiply thy seed exceedingly, that it shall not be numbered for multitude. 11 And the angel of the LORD said unto her, Behold, thou [art] with child, and shalt bear a son, and shalt call his name Ishmael; because the LORD hath heard thy affliction. 12 And he will be a wild man; his hand [will be] against every man, and every man's hand against him; and he shall dwell in the presence of all his brethren.
Just as we find the self-proclaimed seed of Ishmael are revealed today. Fighting and murdering not only non-Muslims but each other as well. Nor did God ever have a covenant with the seed of Ishmael, but specifically proclaimed His covenant to be with the seed of Isaac.
Genesis 17:19 And God said, Sarah thy wife shall bear thee a son indeed; and thou shalt call his name Isaac: and I will establish my covenant with him for an everlasting covenant, [and] with his seed after him.
Romans 9:7 Neither, because they are the seed of Abraham, [are they] all children: but, In Isaac shall thy seed be called. 8 That is, They which are the children of the flesh, these [are] not the children of God: but the children of the promise are counted for the seed. 9 For this [is] the word of promise, At this time will I come, and Sara shall have a son.
More on the "children of the flesh" and the Arabian pagan rituals Muhammad adopted, adapted and thinly veneered. The seed of Ishmael are specifically not included in God's Abrahamic covenants:
Genesis 21:9 And Sarah saw the son of Hagar the Egyptian, which she had born unto Abraham, mocking. 10 Wherefore she said unto Abraham, Cast out this bondwoman and her son: for the son of this bondwoman shall not be heir with my son, [even] with Isaac. 11 And the thing was very grievous in Abraham's sight because of his son. 12 And God said unto Abraham, Let it not be grievous in thy sight because of the lad, and because of thy bondwoman; in all that Sarah hath said unto thee, hearken unto her voice; for in Isaac shall thy seed be called.
What Did Jesus Teach? (URL)
On the page "What did Jesus teach?", as with all dissimulation, once you establish the goal of the effort it's best to start at the bottom with the conclusions reached, before wasting time with the process in getting there. The author which was unnamed on the website of the "International Interfaith Council" wrote:
"If Jesus had indeed been God, the words, "My God, my God," would have been a mockery most extreme. God could not have deemed himself forsaken by himself.
Was Jesus the Son of God? Praying, he said, Father, the hour is come, glorify thy Son, that thy Son also may glorify thee." [Jolan xvii. 2.] And was he glorified? His death and resurrection most strongly disbelieved in the very city where they are alleged to have happened. His doctrines rejected by the only people to whom he preached them. His miracles denied by the only nation amongst whom they are alleged to have been performed; and he himself thus on the cross crying out, "My God, my God, why hast thou forsaken me?
Peace and love are alleged to be the special characteristics of Christianity. Yet the whole history of Christian nations has been blurred by war and hate. Now and for the past thirty years the most civilized amongst Christian nations have been devoting enorihous sums and huge masses of men to the preparation for war. Torpedoes and explosive shells, one hundred ton guns and melinite, are by Christian rulers accounted better aids than faith in Jesus."
Christians of course we recognize Jesus' words as a fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy. So it should come as no surprise that when we put the opening sentence into a search engine, we find this page is a straight copy and paste of the blasphemy of the famous 19th century atheist Charles Bradlaugh, presented at infidels.org "The Secular Web".
From Wikipedia: "Charles Bradlaugh (26 September 1833 – 30 January 1891) was a political activist and one of the most famous English atheists of the 19th century. He founded the National Secular Society in 1866."
Christians that have been in the trenches of Internet forums, or that attempt to edit Muhammadan propaganda out of Wikipedia pages, are frequently exposed to Islamic dissimulation and deception. It isn't unusual for us to find that in their desperation to run from the truth of the Gospel, Muslims turn to atheists and agnostics for material, to copy and paste pure blasphemy against Jesus Christ. Nor would it be a surprise to find Muslims covertly engaged in the same, while pretending to be friends of Christians and putting them on parade as supportive, toward their efforts to ultimately conquer and subjugate God's people to the followers of Muhammad. If not covertly, are we to believe that the Christians listed as members of the Council on the member page, are aware of and support the content of the IIC website?
Whether an atheist, or a follower of the false prophet Muhammad who reject the Holy Spirit in Jesus' name, the poor deluded souls could never expect to understand the things of the Spirit of God while putting their faith, trust and effort into DISbelief:
1Corinthians 2:14 But the natural man receiveth not the things of the Spirit of God: for they are foolishness unto him: neither can he know [them], because they are spiritually discerned.
Islam is the Opposite of Christianity (URL)
Millions of evangelical Christians that are not victims of "punitive supersessionism" style replacement theology, consider Jews to be our brethren even though we understand why some of them may not feel the same way, since some may remain blind to the Gospel through an act of God to preclude them from sinning against it. Here's one such view in a verse by verse of Romans 11. The two groups would also seem to be suggested here:
1Corinthians 12:3 Wherefore I give you to understand, that no man speaking by the Spirit of God calleth Jesus accursed: and [that] no man can say that Jesus is the Lord, but by the Holy Ghost.
John 14:26 But the Comforter, [which is] the Holy Ghost, whom the Father will send in my name, he shall teach you all things, and bring all things to your remembrance, whatsoever I have said unto you.
Yet Muhammad curses Jews and Christians while commanding his followers to fight against us and subjugate us to themselves:
Surah 9.29 Fight those who believe not in Allah nor the Last Day, nor hold that forbidden which hath been forbidden by Allah and His Messenger, nor acknowledge the religion of Truth, (even if they are) of the People of the Book, until they pay the Jizya with willing submission, and feel themselves subdued. 30 The Jews call 'Uzair a son of Allah, and the Christians call Christ the son of Allah. That is a saying from their mouth; (in this) they but imitate what the unbelievers of old used to say. Allah's curse be on them: how they are deluded away from the Truth!
Worse than all, Muhammad proclaimed the exact opposite of the whole subject of the Gospel.
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:-
Here's the whole subject of the Gospel:
Matthew 26:28 For this is my blood of the new testament, which is shed for many for the remission of sins.
In Jesus' own prophecy:
Matthew 20:17 And Jesus going up to Jerusalem took the twelve disciples apart in the way, and said unto them, 18 Behold, we go up to Jerusalem; and the Son of man shall be betrayed unto the chief priests and unto the scribes, and they shall condemn him to death, 19 And shall deliver him to the Gentiles to mock, and to scourge, and to crucify [him]: and the third day he shall rise again.
Not a stretch to suggest that the prophesied Messiah and His shed blood is the subject of the whole bible:
Leviticus 17:11 For the life of the flesh [is] in the blood: and I have given it to you upon the altar to make an atonement for your souls: for it [is] the blood [that] maketh an atonement for the soul.
As pointed out on the home page Muhammad's proclamation of the exact opposite of the whole subject of the Gospel - that Jesus wasn't crucified and didn't die - is all that a Christian needs to know about Islam. Islam 101, a complete course, in one verse. The only anti-a-specific-religion cult on earth. Additionally, according to the scriptures, to deny the Son of God is antichrist.
1 John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father:
The spirit of antichrist fills Satan's followers with complete resolve to DISbelieve the crucifixion, DENY the Son of God, and REJECT His shed blood. Yet among the International Interfaith Council member list we find some who apparently believe themselves to be Christians.
A Warning to Christians Involved (URL)
Perhaps the Christian "participation" is like the scientists that were invited to Saudi Arabia, and then the recorded footage was chopped and edited to fake as though scientists believed the Quran could only have been inspired by a divine being, in a fraudulent scheme of dissimulation ironically titled "This is Truth". In this case using their names and images to identify them with the content of the blasphemous website.
If these Christians weren't duped, may the Good Lord show enough mercy toward at least one of those engaged in the blasphemous dissimulation of the "International Interfaith Council", to give him the strength and resolve to very publicly renounce any association with it and begin a campaign of denouncing it and warning others that are ignorant and unwary. Particularly about getting fooled into vain efforts toward the religious pluralism of trying to reconcile Christianity with Islam through this sort of Islamist website antichrist blasphemy, that masquerades as being of the one true God of Jews and Christians. I would be happy to post such renouncements and denouncements on this webpage. You can post them in the Islam-Christian Forum and I will lift them from there at your request.
2Thessalonians 2:9 [Even him], whose coming is after the working of Satan with all power and signs and lying wonders, 10 And with all deceivableness of unrighteousness in them that perish; because they received not the love of the truth, that they might be saved. 11 And for this cause God shall send them strong delusion, that they should believe a lie: 12 That they all might be damned who believed not the truth, but had pleasure in unrighteousness.
The goals are obvious and conspicuously precedented. No amount of website editing will alter Islam's commandments, or objectives, any more than the Gospel could ever be reconciled with its exact opposite. Nor will wishful hopes and dreams of apostates, change a dangerous cult with a 1400 year history of imperialistic conquest and slaughter of God's people, that is commanded of followers of the false prophet Muhammad. For those that have deluded themselves into believing they are Christian, that are included on the website as being a part of this sacrilegious abomination, please again consider the risk:
Matthew 7:22 Many will say to me in that day, Lord, Lord, have we not prophesied in thy name? and in thy name have cast out devils? and in thy name done many wonderful works? 23 And then will I profess unto them, I never knew you: depart from me, ye that work iniquity.
Revelation 3:15 I know thy works, that thou art neither cold nor hot: I would thou wert cold or hot. 16 So then because thou art lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will spue thee out of my mouth.
Revelation 20:10 And the devil that deceived them was cast into the lake of fire and brimstone, where the beast and the false prophet [are], and shall be tormented day and night for ever and ever.
This page is a result of just the first little bit of time I spent exploring the website of the International Interfaith Council, that I felt the need to rush to upload. There may be more to come.
