Preachers who open the Pulpit to Islam

Sunday, June 26, 2011, more than 50 Churches thru out the U.S. are opening their doors and Pulpits to Islam. From a Biblical standpoint, this is a major mistake!  You can bet this causes Jesus as much pain as each nail driven thru his hands and feet, as much as having the crown of thorns jammed on his head! Can you imagine how this makes Christians who live in Muslim countries feel?  They are abused, persecuted, prosecuted, imprisoned, tortured, raped, beat and killed all in the name of Islam, yet we have Pastors who are going to read from the Qur'an Sunday, who are going to allow Imams the Pulpit to speak! What a tragedy! How can they do this?

They say its Biblical.  They say its what Jesus would do.  I can find NOTHING in my Bible that says its Biblical, yet I find many, many warnings against false teachings and false prophets.  I can find NOTHING in my Bible that tells me Jesus would open His House to the antichrist, to false teachings. When I first read about what they are doing, I went back an re-read the 4 Gospels from front to back, in 3 Bibles, My King James Version, my ORIGINAL NIV, ( Both are Life Application Study Bibles) and my Scots Bible which predates the King James Version and has a TREMENDOUS amount of commentary, much more than even Life Application Bibles.  No where in them did I find ANYTHING that would lead a reasonable person to believe Jesus would open His House to the teachings of Islam. NO WHERE!

Over the past couple of months I have studied my heart out.  I've spent much time in Prayer about Sunday.  After much studying, much Prayer, I can only come up with a couple of reasons a Pastor would do this.  The most logical reason I have been able to come up with is that they are just plain lazy.  Its much easier to just believe the lies told about Islam than it is to invest the time to study Islam and find out the truth about it.  Its much easier to believe the Religion of Peace nonsense, and the "We believe in Jesus too", and "We believe in all of the prophets of the Bible too" than it is to search for the Truth.  My Qur'an is one of the most widely accepted English Language Translations.  It is the Abdhullah Yusuf Ali translation. Its 463 pages long counting the table of contents and index. Its only 7 inches high, and 4 3/4 inches wide.  I think before I would open the doors or The Pulpit of The House of God to Islam I would find time to READ THE BOOK!

Those Pastors who open The Church to Islam would do well to read The Book of 2 John 2-11, and pay special attention to verses 10-11!


2 John 1

 1The elder unto the elect lady and her children, whom I love in the truth; and not I only, but also all they that have known the truth;
 2For the truth's sake, which dwelleth in us, and shall be with us for ever.
 3Grace be with you, mercy, and peace, from God the Father, and from the Lord Jesus Christ, the Son of the Father, in truth and love.
 4I rejoiced greatly that I found of thy children walking in truth, as we have received a commandment from the Father.
 5And now I beseech thee, lady, not as though I wrote a new commandment unto thee, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another.
 6And this is love, that we walk after his commandments. This is the commandment, That, as ye have heard from the beginning, ye should walk in it.
 7For many deceivers are entered into the world, who confess not that Jesus Christ is come in the flesh. This is a deceiver and an antichrist.
 8Look to yourselves, that we lose not those things which we have wrought, but that we receive a full reward.
 9Whosoever transgresseth, and abideth not in the doctrine of Christ, hath not God. He that abideth in the doctrine of Christ, he hath both the Father and the Son.
 10If there come any unto you, and bring not this doctrine, receive him not into your house, neither bid him God speed:
  11For he that biddeth him God speed is partaker of his evil deeds. -  King James Version

2 John 1
 1 The elder,
   To the chosen lady and her children, whom I love in the truth—and not I only, but also all who know the truth— 2 because of the truth, which lives in us and will be with us forever:
 3 Grace, mercy and peace from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, the Father’s Son, will be with us in truth and love.
 4 It has given me great joy to find some of your children walking in the truth, just as the Father commanded us. 5 And now, dear lady, I am not writing you a new command but one we have had from the beginning. I ask that we love one another. 6 And this is love: that we walk in obedience to his commands. As you have heard from the beginning, his command is that you walk in love.
 7 Many deceivers, who do not acknowledge Jesus Christ as coming in the flesh, have gone out into the world. Any such person is the deceiver and the antichrist. 8 Watch out that you do not lose what you have worked for, but that you may be rewarded fully. 9 Anyone who runs ahead and does not continue in the teaching of Christ does not have God; whoever continues in the teaching has both the Father and the Son. 10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not take him into your house or welcome him. 11 Anyone who welcomes him shares in his wicked work. - NIV 1984 Version

2 John 1

 1-2My dear congregation, I, your pastor, love you in very truth. And I'm not alone—everyone who knows the Truth that has taken up permanent residence in us loves you.
 3Let grace, mercy, and peace be with us in truth and love from God the Father and from Jesus Christ, Son of the Father!
 4-6I can't tell you how happy I am to learn that many members of your congregation are diligent in living out the Truth, exactly as commanded by the Father. But permit me a reminder, friends, and this is not a new commandment but simply a repetition of our original and basic charter: that we love each other. Love means following his commandments, and his unifying commandment is that you conduct your lives in love. This is the first thing you heard, and nothing has changed.
Don't Walk Out on God
 7There are a lot of smooth-talking charlatans loose in the world who refuse to believe that Jesus Christ was truly human, a flesh-and-blood human being. Give them their true title: Deceiver! Antichrist!
 8-9And be very careful around them so you don't lose out on what we've worked so diligently in together; I want you to get every reward you have coming to you. Anyone who gets so progressive in his thinking that he walks out on the teaching of Christ, walks out on God. But whoever stays with the teaching, stays faithful to both the Father and the Son.
 10-11If anyone shows up who doesn't hold to this teaching, don't invite him in and give him the run of the place. That would just give him a platform to perpetuate his evil ways, making you his partner. - The Message

     Compare the Scripture above with the following from the Qur'an:

3: 59. The similitude of Jesus before God is as that of Adam; He created him from dust, then said to him: "Be". And he was.
60. The Truth (comes) from God alone; so be not of those who doubt
61. If any one disputes in this matter with thee, now after (full) knowledge Hath come to thee, say: "Come! let us gather together,- our sons and your sons, our women and your women, ourselves and yourselves: Then let us earnestly pray, and invoke the curse of God on those who lie!"
62. This is the true account: There is no god except God. and God. He is indeed the Exalted in Power, the Wise.
63. But if they turn back, God hath full knowledge of those who do mischief.
64. Say: "O People of the Book! come to common terms as between us and you: That we worship none but God. that we associate no partners with him; that we erect not, from among ourselves, Lords and patrons other than God." If then they turn back, say ye: "Bear witness that we (at least) are Muslims (bowing to God’s Will).
65. Ye People of the Book! Why dispute ye about Abraham, when the Law and the Gospel Were not revealed Till after him? Have ye no understanding?
66. Ah! Ye are those who fell to disputing (Even) in matters of which ye had some knowledge! but why dispute ye in matters of which ye have no knowledge? It is God Who knows, and ye who know not!
67. Abraham was not a Jew nor yet a Christian; but he was true in Faith, and bowed his will to God’s (Which is Islam), and he joined not gods with God.

As you can see above Islam says Jesus was formed from clay like Adam.  In verse 65 "Ye People of the Book" refers to Christians.

4: 156. That they rejected Faith; that they uttered against Mary a grave false charge;
157. That they said (in boast), "We killed Christ Jesus the son of Mary, the Messenger of God.;- but they killed him not, nor crucified him, but so it was made to appear to them, and those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no (certain) knowledge, but only conjecture to follow, for of a surety they killed him not:-
158. Nay, God raised him up unto Himself; and God is Exalted in Power, Wise
159. And there is none of the People of the Book but must believe in him before his death; and on the Day of Judgment he will be a witness against them;-
160. For the iniquity of the Jews We made unlawful for them certain (foods) good and wholesome which had been lawful for them;- in that they hindered many from God’s Way;-

As you can see from the Qur'anic verses above, according to Islam, Jesus was NOT The Son of God, nor was He crucified.  Islam says Allah made Judas look like Jesus, and Judas was crucified in Jesus's place. Therefore no death and resurection.  By Biblical definition, that means Islam is the antichrist! Knowing this how can anyone who claims to be a Preacher open the Pulpit and the Doors of The House of God to Islam?  Please Pray for these mis-guided Pastors and the Church members who will be in attendence!

Over the next couple of weeks I plan on posting several indepth articles using The Holy Bible, the Qur'an, the Hadith and the Reliance of The Traveller, (the sharia law manual)  for references to show how Islam and Christianity are not compatible;  Why Isa of the Qur'an is NOT Jesus of The Holy Bible; and why I feel Islam is the Mark of the Beast.

I'm going to try to include a link from this article to Logans Warning.  Chris has a great article on the Churches participating in the Qur'an reading Sunday.  He has a link in that article to the organizations who are sponsoring the event.  One of those organizations has a list of many of the Churches who are participating.

About Surround Them with Prayer

Surround Them with Prayer is a Ministry I started about 2 years ago.  Our mission is to spread the Word of God.  To give people a place to post Prayer requests and be confident Christian Brothers and Sisters will Pray for them.  To warn of the danger to The Church and our country from Islam, and establish Prayer groups to Surround our Muslim Brothers and Sisters with Prayer.  As Christians, we need to Pray for The Holy Spirit to enter the hearts of our Muslim friends and lead them AWAY from the EVIL that is Islam, and to the Love of Jesus Christ!!

As a great friend of mine who has been a Missionary to Muslims for 25 years says," Jesus has brought them to the United States where it is much safer to Minister to them.  Its our Christian duty to share The Word of God with them!!"  I will be posting different Scriptures that warn of the antichrist and false prophets and show how they relate to Islam.  Blogging about Churches that are actually opening their doors to Islam, NOT Muslims, Islam!  The growing advancement of Sharia Law in the USA. 

I'll also post Prayer requests and Praise Reports. We have many dedicated Prayer Warriors on our Facebook group page.  If you have a Prayer request it will be posted on Facebook as well as on this blog.  I look forward to using this blog as a way to spread The Word of God and the Love of Jesus Christ.  Please bear with me as I learn to use it!

Thank you and God Bless You!!
