Sikh, Hindu hymns echo through US Presidential cathedral
Hindu and Sikh hymns echoed through the Washington National Cathedral as nine world religions filled the building, a usual venue for Presidential prayers and official gatherings at an interfaith concert here.

Led by Washington's Guru Gobind Singh Foundation (GGSF) executive director Rajwant Singh, 35 Sikh men and women in spotless white with saffron satin scarves around their necks said opening prayers at the 26th Interfaith Concert held by the Interfaith Conference.

The Kuchipudi Dance Academy represented the Hindu faith as its troupe presented a recital in honour of Lord Shiva. ...

This "National Cathedral", which has no lawful basis according to the U.S. Constitution (which prevents Fed government from establishing a form of religious worship, compelled by tax revenues, as did the Church of England our patriot forefather's fought against), represents the typical usurpation of the pretended "Christian" posturing leaders in Washington. Ever since the Federalist Constitution, and the first President, America has had leadership and Presidents that WERE NOT CHRISTIAN--BUT DEISTS AND FREEMASONS. DEISTS are anti-Christian impostors, who make use of language that has always deceived Christians (including Washington, Lincoln, Reagan, Bush II, etc.) FOR POLITICAL PURPOSES. The Deist position can be observed in the writings of Thomas Paine, who blasphemed and opposed the Bible. The National Cathedral is that of anti-Christ, and is as popular as THEIR anti-Christian Christmas. Anything religious represents THEIR Deist religion, THEIR "Supreme Being", including "under God".

It was also wrong when the Dali Lama appeared at a Catholic Cathedral. I can not figure out what is the matter with the RCC for wanting to have prayer meetings with the Non Christian religions of Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, Confusinism and other Eastern religions.

Col2:16 reads "Sabbaths" in the Greek (neuter, plural, genitive). In context, Paul is condemning Jewish festivals, which Jews called "Sabbaths". He was not condemning putting aside one day in seven to worship God.
Works of mercy, necessity and service to God have always been permitted on the Sabbath/ Lord's Day. Jesus condemned the Pharasees for denying this thruth by their man made rules.

In Mark 2:23 the Bible is clear that it was only the disciples that plucked corn, not Jesus. Our Lord kept the Sabbath, because He was without sin.

Is 58:13-14 If thou turn away thy foot from the sabbath, from doing thy pleasure on my holy day; and call the sabbath a delight, the holy of the LORD, honourable; and shalt honour him, not doing thine own ways, nor finding thine own pleasure, nor speaking thine own words: 14 Then shalt thou delight thyself in the LORD; and I will cause thee to ride upon the high places of the earth, and feed thee with the heritage of Jacob thy father: for the mouth of the LORD hath spoken it .

Protestant from the U.K. (Yes, Chris M., your BASICALLY right) Christ did not keep the Sabbath regularily, if you want to keep the Sabbath then all work and affairs should be stopped on Saturday, the Sabbath, not Sunday. No just because shopping is done 24/7 doesn't make society any better, and there should be at least one day of rest for everyone, which he should use to worship God. However,
(ASV)
Colossians 2
16. Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of a feast day or a new moon or a sabbath day:

Why John, that is no different than having the Dali Lama at a Catholic cathedral.

That is sick that Sikh and Hindu hymns were allowed to be sung at the Episcopal Washington National Cathedral. Only Christian hymns should have been allowed to be sung at the Episcopal Washington National Cathedral.

...but suffer all things, lest we should Hindu the gospel of Christ.

Chris,
The principle is one day in seven. Whether we call it the Christian Sabbath, the Lord's Day, the First Day of the Week or whatever, we surely ought to keep it.

The Sabbath is Saturday. Sunday (1st day of the week) is the Lordsday.

Jim,

I guess you believe that the Sabbath (Lord's Day, Sunday) is binding on the Christian? Has American or British society become any better for turning Sunday into just another shopping day? Has this made our nations more godly? Do people devote more time to God, seeking to meet with congregations of faithful believers to hear the Word of God and sing His praises? Or are they devoting the day to sport and home improvements? Does this draw us back to faithfulness to God?
If you don't think the Sabbath is binding on Christians, what possible complaint can you have against such ungodliness?

God gave 10 Commandments, and God does not change, nor do His standards.

God kept the Sabbath Himself after creating the Heavens and Earth. The Sabbath principle of one day in seven was there before The Fall and is part of our created being.

Good point, John. They'll probably cause their platform to collapse.

Craig, 10 Commandments? There are only nine for the Christian. In some respects there are only two,
(AV)
Matthew 22
37 Jesus said unto him, Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
38 This is the first and great commandment.
39 And the second [is] like unto it, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself.
40 On these two commandments hang all the law and the prophets.

As a sermon from my favorite pastor put it:

Craig,

I'm with you on having the ambition to disciple the nations, but that will only happen when the vast majority of individuals willingly receive Jesus as LORD and saviour.
Passionate, persistant and victorious evangelism, wrought by the Spirit of God, is our only hope if we are ever going to see an end to blasphamy like that mentioned above.

"The annual concert aims at bringing together Islamic, Jewish,
Hindu, Protestant, Roman Catholic, and Sikh communities on a
common platform."

"Common platform"? those guys can keep their "common platform".
I'll take the Rock of Ages as MY foundation!

Interfaith stuff like this was not on the mind of our founding fathers. Away with this. A cathedral or house of Christian worship is for that and should be for that only. Spiritual adultery is great in this day and age, but the harlot will fall with a great fall.

After the coming of Christ, not only does each individual face the responsibility to kiss the Son, but each nation as a body politic. They are obliged to do homage to the son by operating under the bonds and fetters which He places on them. Among these are surely the Ten Commandments. Even though as an Individual I did not participate in this idolatrous breaking of the first table, as an American I was forced to participate vicariously through my magistrates. This is offensive to me, and that is why I am leading my family and anyone else I have influence over to believe that we must disciple the Nations, not just individuals.
