As we discussed on Stand Up for the Truth this morning, there is a growing movement within progressive Christian circles promoting “Chrislam”, a blending of Christianity and Islam.  It is important for Believers to learn for themselves just what the Koran does and does not say about Jesus.  This is important because promoters of Chrislam seek to find ‘common ground” by citing the 25 times the Koran mentions Jesus.

The Koran denies the deity of Jesus Christ.  It teaches that Jesus was more like Elijah, a great prophet who God brought to heaven before He died.  Jesus is viewed as a prophet paving the way for Mohammed, the ultimate prophet.  Many Muslims view Judaism, and then Christianity as incomplete prophecy on the Word of God.  They teach that Mohammed was the last and ‘perfect” prophet who completed God’s written Word.

In my opinion, Chrislam is a giant step toward a one world religion—a melding of the two monotheistic religions into one.  While not yet viewed as a religion, Chrislam is a religion.  I believe it is a movement of what we call “Christian Humanism”.  If you read carefully the writings of Emergent leaders like Brian McLaren and Tony Campolo, you will see their attempts to discredit the absolute truth of God’s Word.  McLaren has gone as far as calling the cross “false advertising” for Christianity, questioning Jesus’ sacrificial atonement for our sins.  It is important we are versed on these false teachings as we move closer to Jesus’ return.  Sweet sounding teachings will tickle the ears and lead many astray from the true gospel message.

In a world ripe for revolution and continued chaos, it is more important than ever that we stay grounded in the Word of God—the bible.  Many false teachers will come forward with ideas that sound appealing; but they are deceptive and seek to blend truth and lies.  Stay alert, stay informed and stay in prayer.

    How can a Christian follow scripture such as……
    Quran (5:51) – "O ye who believe! take not the Jews and the Christians for your friends and protectors: They are but friends and protectors to each other. And he amongst you that turns to them (for friendship) is of them. Verily Allah guideth not a people unjust."
    Quran (5:72-73) – "They do blaspheme who say: "Allah is Christ the son of Mary." But said Christ: "O Children of Israel! worship Allah, my Lord and your Lord." Whoever joins other gods with Allah,- Allah will forbid him the garden, and the Fire will be his abode. There will for the wrong-doers be no one to help. They do blaspheme who say: Allah is one of three in a Trinity: for there is no god except One Allah. If they desist not from their word (of blasphemy), verily a grievous penalty will befall the blasphemers among them."
    Islam can NOT co-exsist with any other religion, Don't believe me, ask all the Jews killed in Israel, Buddhists slaughtered in Bangladesh, Hindu's murdered in India, Christians beheaded in Indonesia, Yemen, Afganistan…etc. ____ __

    What do Chrislam followers believe? If they follow the Quran, they have to believe Jesus never died on the cross. They have to believe Mary was Aaron and Moses' sister. They have to believe Abraham lived in Mecca and not Hebron, and he went to sacrifice Ishmael, when the Bible says it was Issac….. Basically, to say the Quran is correct, is saying the Bible is wrong and vice versa.
    In fact, the bible states Satan is the 'great deceiver', a phrase allah uses to describe himself (sura 5 ayat 34). The definition given for the anti christ is 'someone who denies Jesus's death and resurrection'…. i.e. Islam.

    Many people in our present time believe we are still under the old Mosaic law. Some believe we are also under the old Pharisaic laws as well. And many of those who don't even profess to be Jewish or Muslim believe we are still under the letter of the Old Testament Law. Those who are pursuing the agenda of combining Christianity with Islam, and calling it Chrislam, encounter an obstacle that stands in their way. That obstacle to them is the writings of the Apostle Paul. Paul's writings contradict the Islam part of that Satanic brand of religion called Chrislam. Since it is inconceivable to believe in both Islam and Paul's writings at the same time, they figured if there is no way around the obstacle, simply remove it. So they dismiss the Apostle Paul as a heretec, and try to convince others that his writings should never have gotten into the Bible in the first place. I have noticed that notion spreading by leaps and bounds. Their converts, lured in by 'harmony among all through Satanic compromise', my notice that Paul's writings are not found in their new teachings. They will probably be told, "With the combining of the two religions into one, our new holy book had to be streamlined. Or else, it would be too big". Their converts will never be told, "One of the Son of God's apostle's writings wouldn't fit into our agenda. So we deleted it"…How convenient. Maybe they'll delete this as well, but it will not change the truth…Revelation 22:19 "And if any man shall take away from the words of this book of this prophecy, God shall take away his part out of the book of life, and out of the holy city, and from the things which are written in this book.

    This "Chrislam" is heresy and dangerous. I started reading Koran when I was in high school, back in the 1970's, and I was never able to believe that the teachings were truly of God. Jihad will never stop. The current imam has said publically that Islam will cover the earth and that if Christians and Jews don't accept Islam, they will be put to death. Can it be any clearer? Is there a question in anyone's mind that Muslims are out to kill for world domination? I urge everyone to read what Koran says, and it does get convoluted; there are other books published that can help clarify what is being taught in Koran. READ THEM! Back in 1985, a wise man I met admonished that America would be destroyed by Islam; I am taking this threat seriously. I pray you do, too.

    It has now become blatant and blasphemous that any ( whether pastors, church leaders or Christian writers), attempt to combine Christianity with islam reveals either a huge lack of understanding of what islam says about Christ or that whoever makes the attempt to do so is simply not a true Christian believer. They do not go together as light does not go with darkness, or as God cannot be united with satan. DO NOT FOLLOW these false teachers & pastors for they are blind themselves!
