A new campaign has been launched to encourage Christians, Jews and Muslims to reconcile and focus on their areas of agreement, rather than subjects on which they disagree.
The effort, the Trac 5 program, is being run by former three-term U.S. Rep. Mark Siljander, who is building a national network of personal representatives, colleges, churches, synagogues and mosques.
In the program, Christians openly presenting Jesus to Muslims and attempt to show them that their beliefs about Jesus aren't that far apart from Christians.
The program de-emphasizes the contradictions between Christianity and Islam, such as the Quran's statement that Allah "has no son" while the Christian faith centers on the resurrection of Jesus, God's "only son."...
Jim this is a little more forcefully 'impressed' then promise keepers. The article states. "In the program's first five months, the network has grown to have representatives in 20 states and involves professors, pastors, rabbis, imams and lay people who focus on creating an alternative to traditional interreligious dialogue. Siljander said he believes his program will succeed where others have failed.
His website explains that the first four tracks are *diplomats negotiating 'peace?' plans, politicians implementing agreements through legal processes, 'military pressure to comply' and economic strategists motivating with incentives.* Then the "Trac 5" is an effort to "coach key influence makers through a process so powerful it can turn enmity into reconciliation." In Trac5 we have found a spiritual model by which if enough people get engaged in this process, it can help undermine radicalism in anything, Islam, Christianity, whatever radicalism's face may look like," Siljander stated.
"And empowering hopefully the majority of people who support peace and the way of life we enjoy here in America,"* Siljander said.
This sounds more like Iraq, and 'Arab Spring' than Promise Keepers?
 But the Spirit explicitly says that in later times some will fall away from the faith, paying attention to deceitful spirits and doctrines of demons, (1Ti 4:1)
 But false prophets also arose among the people, just as there will also be false teachers among you, who will secretly introduce destructive heresies, even denying the Master who bought them, bringing swift destruction upon themselves.  Many will follow their sensuality, and because of them the way of the truth will be maligned;  and in their greed they will exploit you with false words; their judgment from long ago is not idle, and their destruction is not asleep.  then the Lord knows how to rescue the godly from temptation, and to keep the unrighteous under punishment for the day of judgment, (2Pe 2:1-3,9)
 For speaking out arrogant words of vanity they entice by fleshly desires, by sensuality, those who barely escape from the ones who live in error,  promising them freedom while they themselves are slaves of corruption; for by what a man is overcome, by this he is enslaved. (2Pe 2:18-19)
