Rick Warren: Asks for Allah's Forgiveness

Yup, you read that right. See, he's been working on a unity between Islam and Christianity. In the process, he signed a document. Want to see it? the end of the Preamble. Better yet, here's what to look for:

"Before we “shake your hand” in responding to your letter, we ask forgiveness of the All-Merciful One and of the Muslim community around the world."

Wanna guess who the "All-Merciful One" is? It isn't Jesus. It is Allah, the false god of Islam.

By signing this, Rick Warren, Senior "Pastor" and "wolf-in-sheep's clothing" of Saddleback Church, committed open apostasy. Note that he wasn't the only one. He just happens to be a very influential person in what I reluctantly call "evangelicalism". Bill Hybels signed it as well as his other liberal friend, Robert Schuller and a host of other Christian "wannabes".

My friends, this is called "shipwrecking the faith". Hymenaeus and Alexander would be proud.

**** UPDATE, January 20th, 2009 ****
According to the software that tracks visitors to this blog, I get periodic massive waves of visitors who link to this blog post from an emailed link. Because I a.) do not know who they are so I b.) don't know if they are sympathetic to Islam or profess Christ, etc., let me supply this link out of concern.

7/14/09 -- And here is the testimony of a former PLO terrorist who gives testimony of Jesus Christ, also testifying that "allah is *not* the God of the Bible" and that Islam is *not* a religion of peace...

Tim, thanks for taking this bold stand for the faith and Word of God.

I was begining to think that I was the only one that saw this travesty and apparent attempt at deception.

One other thing,the god of Islam has a small "g" as in angel of light.

What I'd like to know is, where is the outrage?

You have Wheaton College and Taylor University, among others, signing onto this thing.

Are any of the trustees of these institutions watching?

What about the elders of the churches where these men (e.g, Duane Litfin, President of Wheaton College) are members? Will they discipline the signers for such an open repudiation of scriptural truth?

Can't believe that this is still even a relevant topic, given that this article came out over a year ago but I did get an additional comment today.

I'm not posting it here because I am going to make a blog post about it.

The basic statement had to do with "Arab Christians use the word "Allah" in reference to God".

Of course, this may be true but misses the point of what this particular article is about...which has more to do with the nature of God and the differences between what Christians and Muslims believe about God. Christians never refer to God the Father, the Spirit or God the Son as "the all merciful one". Muslims do -- and when signing on to this document, the "leaders" who did so with that understanding. It was a capitulation to the Muslim faith by those who profess Christ. And the two faiths are incompatible.

Again, I'm holding the comment back as a full post. The statement is worthy of dealing with in a more obvious fashion. When it is published, I will supply a link to it here.

Thank you!

Oh! It occurred to me that perhaps I should include this

There is a great article there about Islam which can be read online. If you print it out, it will be two or three hundred pages, single sided. It
can be found here....
