Chrislam: When common ground becomes shaky ground

Front of the QuranWe know that the God of the Bible is not the same god of the Qur’an. Yahweh of the Bible became flesh 2,000 years ago to be that perfect lamb, the Son, the atonement for our sins. The Jesus we believe in is God. But Allah of the Qur’an did not have a son. There was no atonement, no hope of a Messiah, and no grace for sinners.  The Christian God and the Muslim Allah cannot be one and the same. And yet there are a growing number of Christians and Muslims who are combining the faith–syncretizing the two into one. That’s called Chrislam, and it is heresy.

This week the Orange County Register reported in an article that leadership of Pastor Rick Warren’s Saddleback Church believe that Muslims and Christians believe in the same God. Is the article accurate? Is that truly what these leaders believe? Our guest today has communicated with Rick Warren twice in the past few days, and it’s as close as anyone has gotten to America’s Pastor to hear in his own words what is going on.

Chris Rosebrough is host of a daily two-hour internet radio program, Fighting For The Faith, heard around the world on Pirate Christian Radio, a broadcast group he started in his hometown of Indianapolis. Chris is at the forefront of those contending for the truth of God’s Word.

  1. Mr. Davis says:

    If we say or sign anything indicating we worship the same God as Islam, a religion that outright denies the Christ, the Son of God, Jesus:

    What do they do with these?

    From 1 John 5:

    5 Who is he that overcometh the world, but he that believeth that Jesus is the Son of God? 6 This is he that came by water and blood, even Jesus Christ; not by water only, but by water and blood. And it is the Spirit that beareth witness, because the Spirit is truth.

    7 For there are three that bear record in heaven, the Father, the Word, and the Holy Ghost: and these three are one. (This is our God, Father Son and Holy Spirit, Christ Jesus is fully God and one with and in God)

    8 And there are three that bear witness in earth, the Spirit, and the water, and the blood: and these three agree in one. (Proof that Christ was fully Man and that He did indeed die.)

    9 If we receive the witness of men, the witness of God is greater: for this is the witness of God which he hath testified of his Son.

    10 He that believeth on the Son of God hath the witness in himself: he that believeth not God hath made him a liar; because he believeth not the record that God gave of his Son.

    11 And this is the record, that God hath given to us eternal life, and this life is in his Son.

    12 He that hath the Son hath life; and he that hath not the Son of God hath not life. 13 These things have I written unto you that believe on the name of the Son of God; that ye may know that ye have eternal life, and that ye may believe on the name of the Son of God.

    To say we worship the same God as the Muslim is to deny the Christ for the Muslim deny the Christ in both He is fully God and One with God also fully man being borne of a virgin.

    Also that He "The Christ Jesus" took our sins upon Himself and died on the Cross and after being dead three days He raised Himself from the dead by the power of the Holy Spirit and after 40 days ascended to Heaven and is seated at the right Hand of God the Father, so that whomsoever shall accept Him as Lord God and Savior, to submit to Him, those, those He has given the right to eternal life.

    Since He is seated at the right hand of God He has received authority to send to those destined to eternal life the Gift of the Holy Spirit to seal those as His unto the day of redemption. The Holy Spirit gives us a new heart a heart of Flesh and moves us to repent of our wickedness and receive Jesus Christ as our Lord that we may obey Christ as Lord and to do what He says.

    Our Christ Jesus commands that we stop lying to one another! Ephesians 4:25

    How can we say we have Christ when we deny Him? We don't even have the Father and we certainly don't have the Spirit.

    Jesus Christ warning in Matthew 7:

    15 Beware of false prophets, which come to you in sheep's clothing, but inwardly they are ravening wolves. 16 Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles? 17 Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

    18 A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. 19 Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire. 20 Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them.

    21 Not every one that saith unto me, Lord, Lord, shall enter into the kingdom of heaven; but he that doeth the will of my Father which is in heaven. 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.

    Paul's plea ACTS 20

    :29 For I know this, that after my departing shall grievous wolves enter in among you, not sparing the flock. 30 Also of your own selves shall men arise , speaking perverse things, to draw away disciples after them. 31 Therefore watch, and remember, that by the space of three years I ceased not to warn every one night and day with tears.

    After reading material about Rick Warren's cultic mindset, I am sickened to think how unequally yoked religions are, yet supposedly, have the same God. This is something that will lead many seekers away from the true living Jesus Christ who died on the cross for all sinners.
    Then to see how Rick Warren's church is allowing parishioners to do the Harlem Shake is atrocious. That comes from the pit of hell. Dancing that really supports sexual messages by their body movements, wearing animal head pieces of whatever they want, and on it goes. This is total destruction of the church, and the house of God. That is barroom material and never edifies Jesus Christ. There Is no way they can be saved to act in such sickening ways. My guess is if Rick Warren can twist the scripture to whatever, to cater to whatever, anything is possible.
    I pray for everyone's soul that comes under the false doctrines, and misleading direction of such ministries.
