Methodists create a multi-religious school to train pastors
The liberalization of American seminaries is an old story. The inauguration of "the world's first interreligious university" is not.
The Claremont School of Theology is collaborating with the Academy for Jewish Religion in California and the Islamic Center of Southern California to produce Claremont Lincoln University, an ambitious endeavor to train religious leaders for a multi-religious world. The member institutions of the consortium will still ordain the pastors, priests, rabbis, and imams, but the university will offer a concentration on interreligious studies as well as master's and doctoral degrees....
Yes, Resloy, I would think only the liberal Jews would go to it. You might find some Muslims going to this actually somewhat prestigious college for the wealthy, (q.v. Claremont School of Theology) but I seriously would doubt a Muslim would get a degree in religion there, without also getting one in a place like Pakistan.
2 Timothy 4 3 For the time will come when they will not endure sound doctrine; but wanting to have their ears tickled, they will accumulate for themselves teachers in accordance to their own desires; 4 and will turn away their ears from the truth, and will turn aside to myths. 5 But you, be sober in all things, endure hardship, do the work of an evangelist, fulfill your ministry.---NASB
"an ambitious endeavor to train religious leaders for a multi-religious world"
Of course real Christians will be banned from attending!
Liberals, Jews (and I suspect they will be Liberal too) and muslims??? The day will come when the person who appears in the pulpit will be of any religion and none. The people in the pews will be completely ignorant of the Bible, like the Liberals are today.
John 8:31 Then said Jesus to those Jews which believed on him, If ye continue in my word, then are ye my disciples indeed; 32 And ye shall know the truth, and the truth shall make you free.
1John 2:22 Who is a liar but he that denieth that Jesus is the Christ? He is antichrist, that denieth the Father and the Son. 23 Whosoever denieth the Son, the same hath not the Father: (but) he that acknowledgeth the Son hath the Father also .
John 5:23 That all men should honour the Son, even as they honour the Father. He that honoureth not the Son honoureth not the Father which hath sent him.
