Wheaton College to advance evangelical-Muslim dialogue
Hundreds of students are expected to attend a conference at Wheaton College aimed at helping evangelicals and Muslims to more effectively communicate and understand each other.
The Neighborly Faith Conference will be held at Wheaton on Friday and Saturday, but is not being hosted or sponsored by the college. It will feature both evangelical and Muslim speakers.
Kevin Singer, co-director of Neighborly Faith, told The Christian Post that while the organization has hosted smaller interfaith events, this will be their first larger scale conference, with 350 students and staff expected to attend....
Here are a couple other points I hope they will discuss: women on the street walking alone are considered by Muslims to be 'working women' so it is OK for any Muslim to attack them. This has been happening in European countries that have 'welcomed' Muslims into their midst. In Muslim courts, a woman's testimony is worth half of a man's, so you need 3 women to overcome the witness of 1 man. He can say he didn't do something, and unless 3 women said he did, the court will accept his sole testimony. And what about the tax on all non-Muslims in Muslim-controlled countries? I believe it is called 'dhimmi' which is part of the submission that the word Islam means. When you hear that word, picture a slave bowing down to a master holding a sword over his head--this is peace in Islam.
As an evangelical, you will not find me on such a platform as this with enemies of the gospel of Christ. Be not deceived. If any man claiming to be an evangelical accepts any other way to God apart from Jesus Christ and him crucified and risen, he is NOT an evangelical but an impostor.
Religious people need Jesus Christ, and over the years many religious folks have found salvation in Christ, to the glory of God alone.
I hope they mention these things about Muslims: 1. for Muslims, all other people are enemies of Allah. the world is divided into Allah's World and the Rest. there is no middle ground, no tolerance. Islam means peace by submission, like the peace a slave has under his master. 2. Taqqiyya is the Muslim principle of deception and lying. Any Muslim is allowed to lie and deceive, even to other Muslims, if they think it is advancing or defending Allah (see #1 above, if you are not Muslim, you are the enemy of Allah). Therefore, you cannot believe anything a Muslim says to you. 3. FGM--Muslims say this is like the Jewish rite of circumcision, but is done on their females at a very early age. It basically destroys their ability forever to have any pleasure from the Biblical act described in Genesis ("Adam knew Eve and she conceived..."). When you see any woman with those dish towels on their heads, you have to feel sorry for them. 3. Heaven for a Muslim is not guaranteed, except if they die killing non-Muslims. Then they will enjoy 72 virgins, but this does not mean virgin girls, but also boys. Homosexuals are sentenced to death in the World of Allah, yet the practice is very common. Some Westerners say it is because they are repressed.

It is humanly possible to compromise with heretics and false religions.
But don't expect the Lord to agree with that which is human and therefore sinful.
The name above all other names - Jesus - Is the ONLY name supported by God.
GOD states + Commands.... Phil 2:9 Wherefore God also hath highly exalted him, and given him a name which is above every name: 10 That at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, of things in heaven, and things in earth, and things under the earth; 11 And that every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father."
Acts 4:12 Neither is there salvation in any other: for there is none other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved."
