Shocking! "Chrislam"Heresy Sweeping Churches in 26 States!!

Shocking! "Chrislam" Heresy Sweeping Churches in 26 States!!
Bill Wilson made the following comment on the rise of "Chrislam" in the United States:
  • "During the weekend of November 13, 2010, many Christian churches across the United States began a series of sermons aimed at bringing about reconciliation between Muslims and Christians. These misguided Presbyterian ministers are trying to focus on a relationship between the Holy Bible and the Koran they call "Chrislam." They are saying that because the Koran mentions Jesus that there is common ground with Christianity. To prove their point, they are placing Korans along side the Holy Bible in their pews. And they are teaching that you can be a follower of Christ without necessarily believing that Jesus is the Christ, the Son of God, who died for our sins offering the gift of eternal salvation.
Writes commentator Paul Williams: "The Chrislam movement has gained impetus by statements from President George W. Bush and that Christians, Jews, and 
Muslims all worship the same God and by Rick Warren's reference to Isa (the Muslim name for Jesus) in his prayer at the inauguration of President Barack Obama." 
Williams points out that Jesus in the Koran is not the only-begotten Son of God nor the Messiah. Williams says, "He is rather viewed as a prophet who was appointed by Allah to prepare mankind for the coming of Mohammad."  Islam denies that Jesus is the Son 
of God and also denies His deity. 
The Koran has many verses that command the followers of allah to kill Christians and Jews if they do not convert to Islam. There is absolutely no common ground between the Holy Scriptures and the Koran when these are the mandates of the prophet Mohammed, who wrote the Koran. 

  • l John 2:22 warns us "Who is a liar but he that denies that Jesus is the Christ? He is Antichrist, that denies the Father and the Son."
  • Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church in Houston along with Christian communities in Atlanta, Seattle, and Detroit were to initiate a series of sermons that have been designed to produce an ecumenical reconciliation between Christianity and Islam. In addition to the sermons, the Sunday School lessons would center on the inspired teachings of the Prophet Mohammad. Qurans were to be placed in the pews next to the Bibles. The concept of Chrislam, now embraced by such preachers as Rick Warren and Robert Schuller, says Sanderson, appears to have emerged from a program on the meaning of “love your neighbor” at Grace Fellowship Church in Atlanta, Ga.
  • Just recently, Rick Warren, founder and pastor of Saddleback Community Church in Orange County California, addressed the convention of the Islamic Society of North America. Warren stated that Muslims and Christians must work together to combat stereotypes, promote peace and freedom, and solve global problems. Christians and Moslems – faith mates, soul mates and now work mates!  On June 26, 2011, churches in 26 states will be involved in joint services with Muslims and other sects. One of the Signs of the Times is the "Great Falling Away" of many professing Christians.

 The Apostle Paul foretold that day when he wrote, "Let no man deceive you by any means: for that day shall not come, except there come a falling away first..." (2 Thessalonians 2:3). The term 'falling away', or as it is called in some texts, 'apostasy' means; to depart from revealed truth, to lead away, seduce, mislead; to defect, to blind the eyes of the people by manipulating the truth; to turn one from the truth by lying signs and wonders.  This is what is taking place in America today!

Well known prophecy teacher, Rev. Jack Van Impe has been speaking out against the great apostasy of "Chrislam."  For twenty years, his program has been aired on Trinity Broadcasting Network.  Recently, Matt Crouch of TBN informed Van Impe that they would not run his  program exposing "Chrislam." The reason Crouch gave was that Van Impe specifically mentioned Rick Warren and Robert Schuller and that it is TBN’s policy that broadcasters are not allowed to rebuke other ministries.  Van Impe has vowed not to be silenced. He stated,  "I will not allow anyone to tell me what I can and cannot preach. When I see heretical teaching leading to apostasy, I will speak out. The Bible says “All scripture is given by inspiration of God, and is profitable for doctrine, for reproof, for correction, for instruction in righteousness:” (II Timothy 3:16). The Apostle Paul also gives instructions in Titus 1:9 – 11, 13 “Holding fast the faithful word as he hath been taught, that he may be able by sound doctrine both to exhort and to convince the gainsayers. For there are many unruly and vain talkers and deceivers…Whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses, teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake…Wherefore rebuke them sharply, that they may be sound in the faith.” 
Jesus said in John 14:6, 
"I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me." This is the central doctrine of Christianity. There is instruction by the Holy Scriptures to not fellowship with those who do not recognize the truth in this doctrine. St. Paul warned us with these words, "Now the Spirit speaketh expressly, that in the latter times some shall depart from the faith, giving heed to seducing spirits, and doctrines of devils;  Speaking lies in hypocrisy; having their conscience seared with a hot iron.  (1 Timothy 4:1 - 2).  This is a powerful sign that Jesus IS coming soon!!  Are you ready??
