Historic interfaith conference follows Muslimsâ€™ lead
Chances are, if there were news stories this week about Muslims, they were not about the four-day conference that brought Islamic and Christian religious leaders and scholars to Yale University.
The Muslim appeal was coordinated by the Royal Institute for Islamic Thought in Jordan. A special advisor to King Abdullah II of Jordan drafted "A Common Word." Prince Ghazi bin Muhammad studied at Princeton University and earned a doctorate at Cambridge University and was a key party to the Yale conference this week.
Now with the first step successfully taken, the dialogue will continue: at Cambridge University in Great Britain in October, at the Vatican in November, at Georgetown University next March and at the Royal Aal al-Bayt Institute for Islamic Thought in Jordan in October 2009....
"Muslims and Christians affirm the unity and absoluteness of God". The real source of unity, if any, is answered by the question - What think ye of Christ? The God of the Lord Jesus Christ is not the god of the Muslim. The Jesus of the Koran is another Jesus!(2 Cor. 11:4) Muslims deny the deity of the Lord Jesus Christ; they relegate Him to one of the prophets, instead of being the Prophet. Muslin theology rejects: the redemptive work of the Lord Jesus for sinners and hold on to their religious works for deliverance, in fact they believe that the Lord Jesus was never crucified. They deny the need of the Blood, grace and God's mercy offered by His Son. There is more I could write, but just what I have written can be verified by any sound examination of Islamic sources.
If the liberals at Cambridge University,and others like them, want to submit to the sword of Muhammad, just remember this, in doing so they are condoning and committing idolatry. Real and saving unity is based on truth, not compromise. Exalt the Lord Jesus Christ or be damned! Jesus Christ is Lord!
