Chrislamic-CrusadeIslamists do not need to storm the steets, they already have the church leaders…

“The concept of Chrislam, now embraced by such preachers as Rick Warren and Robert Schuller, appears to have emerged from a program on the meaning of “love your neighbor” at Grace Fellowship Church in Atlanta, Georgia”

Religion • Presbyterians Boost New CHRISLAM Religion!

The off-base Emerging Church is encouraging pastors to embrace an ecumentical concept of combining Christianity and Islam, actually partnering with Islam, to launch a new religion called…Chrislam—which would combine the two. So far, they have managed to gather 130 Christian leaders who collectively state that Muslims and Christians worship the same God. No they do not!  Allah was the Arabic name for a higher power, or a god. Mohammed ‘s god was Allilah, the moon god which conveniently became the generic name for a god, Allah. This is why a crescent moon and star is on the flag of Islam and mosques. Let this be clear.

In a disturbing account of this new movement, Debra Rae in her column released today (1/22/11) on News With Views, titled “The Lost Art Of Critical Thinking,” writes; “Recently, the Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church, Houston, joined Christian communities in Atlanta, Seattle, and Detroit to encourage “ecumentical reconciliation” between Christianity and Islam. Theirs was a celebration of a sort of worldview potpourri mixing together elements of Christianity and Islam. Predictably called Chrislam, this brand of ecumenicalism qualifies both the Bible and the Qur’an as holy texts.” Hence, in a show of equal authenticity, Qur’ans were postitioned in pews next to Bibles.”

Ms. Rae goes on to say; “Some argue that if American “tolerance”—i.e., as in the form of Chrislam—were rejected, then the ongoing confllict between East and West would escalate beyond repair. This slippery-slope fallacy presumes a sort of chain reaction, destined to end with dire consequences that otherwise might have been averted.”  It is obvious that Muslim imput into this dialogue with pastors was strong. http://revaustinmiles.com/index.php/more/178

Ah…PBS, spreading chrislam with our tax dollars…

  1. Re Emergent Churches- are there any particular denominations that are sympathetic to this “rejection of the Gospel by stealth” movement? Is the Emergent Church movement occurring in Australia as well?

  2. There is a note on the bottom of that page of reading material:

    “Please note that we provide this list for general interest. The inclusion of a title on this page does not imply that we necessarily endorse or agree with opinions or other content expressed in that work.”

    There’s a lot of stuff there that you’d never see at a C3 bible college, I suspect.

    I really enjoyed most of the Dallas Willard book they recommended. The first two thirds were excellent. The last part dealt with spiritual disciplines, and I didn’t finish it. But people I know have benefited from the first two thirds like I did, and were quite happy to regard the last bit as getting a bit extreme. Many of these books require a bit of commitment to read; they aren’t exactly popular Christian fiction (except The Shack). If someone read them all, I’d have to assume they were more than capable of intelligent and independent thought. Which means they can discern for themselves between the good stuff and stuff they will reject.

    It’s a vast improvement from the John Bevere reading list promoted at my last church.

  3. They recommend Phyllis Tickle who promotes “the goddess within” – heard her crazy theology on a Fighting For The Faith sermon review.

  4. That sounds bad. But there is also some good stuff there. It looks like a mixture to me.

    I’ve never visited their church, but some of the things they are looking at attempting sound good to me. They do state an emphasis on community rather than the organisation, which I like. I probably would disagree with some stuff they may like, but they look far more informed about the wider scene of things than your typical C3 scene. I’d check them out if I wanted to attend somewhere, and see for myself what was taught, what was questioned, and what is basically an awareness of general issues.

  5. The original article is hardly worth the electrons its written on. Its no surprise that the author, Rev Austin Miles is also the author of “Santa’s surprising origins”. Ooohh look, just change the order of the last 3 letters and you get Satan.

    Its long on conspiracy but short on fact. A few disparate groups mentioned, nothing linking them except the suspicions of the author, and certainly no relation to the Emerging church.

    It’s one American Presbyterian church, one African church and one Lebanese organisation. All seem to be promoting dialogue and friendship between Christians and Muslims, not starting a new religion.

  6. they are all false prophets…please read what the Apostle Paul who was appointed by Jesus Christ himself to be THE apostle to THE GENTILES ( non Jews )

    Galatians 1

    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.

    12For I neither received it of man, neither was I taught it, but by the revelation of Jesus Christ.

  7. Who is the Emerging Church? What is your criteria for classifying Christians as emergent?

    I’d have hardly thought a Presbyterian Church would be emergent. I thought Presbyterians would be Calvinists.

    An emerging Calvinist – now there’s a thought!

    What next? A fundamentalist liberal? A Christian Catholic?

    The mind boggles!

  8. I’d also recommend a hard to get movie Öf God’s And Men about Christian monks (Catholics – oh no) ministering to Muslims in Algeria. When war breaks out between the nationalist forces and the Islamic Fundamentalists, they have to choose whether to leave or stay and minister to those left behind. They choose to stay at great cost.

    As one reviewer said

    I was immensely touched by the evident love which existed between the monks and the villagers they served and moved by the image in which the former were compared to a strong branch on which the frail could perch. That such affection and concern could exist between Christians and Moslems was I felt overwhelming.

    It is a true story.
