Those who practice counterfeit Christianity are once again drawing our attention by their deeds… This time it is a grandiose structure being built in Omaha, Nebraska which will house a Jewish Temple, an Episcopalian Church, and a Mosque. This is billed as an unprecedented project of collaboration between the three “Abrahamic” religions.
The local news is enthusiastically reporting that “a unique vision for religious unity in Omaha is quickly becoming reality.” This is just another example how syncretism (the combination of various religious beliefs) and ecumenism (the push for unification of all Christian branches) are becoming more popular today in a world where the Word of God is being diluted by apostasy.
How quickly do our Jewish friends forget the message found in the Mosaic books, Isaiah and other prophets with regard to separating their faith from the idolatrous religions of ancient Canaan. What do they hope to accomplish by coming together under the same roof with those practicing Islam or Chrislam? To prove that religious tolerance is possible by diluting their own theology? Or to form a new “Abrahamic” religion?
With respect to the Christian Episcopalians who are involved in this enterprise, I have to remind them that religious unification is an anti-christic prelude to the ultimate reign of the Anti-Christ, the son of perdition who will eventually unify global economical and spiritual domains under his reign. They need to understand that they are practicing a brand of counterfeit Christianity if they accept that Allah is the same God revealed in the Bible, because Jesus said “I am the way, and the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
The religion of Islam does not recognize Jesus as God and it teaches salvation by works, two fundamental elements against biblical truth. Moreover, many factions within Islam use their scriptures to incite violence against Christians and Jews.
Apostle Paul has a clear message in 2 Corinthians 6 for those Christians seeking to unite with other faiths:
“14 Do not be yoked together with unbelievers. For what do righteousness and wickedness have in common? Or what fellowship can light have with darkness? 15 What harmony is there between Christ and Belial? What does a believer have in common with an unbeliever? 16 What agreement is there between the temple of God and idols?”
We are commanded to love our neighbors and evangelize them, NOT to unite with them in apostasy!
