Remember when we first shared that photo of a Saddleback pastor teaching a highly questionable method of evangelizing to other religions? Churches around the world are learning how to blend or sychretize two different faiths, thanks to movements like Jesus in the Qur’an and The Insider Movement. These folks will often use the so-called “Kingdom Circles” illustration to explain how Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, etc., can enter the Kingdom of God without actually converting to Christianity.
Today I sat down with Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now born-again Christian, who took out a pen and paper to explain to me why Kingdom Circles is flawed at best, and more truthfully, blasphemous.
He then illustrated a much better (and biblical!) way to explain the Kingdom to those who do not know Christ. Here is the video:
Elijah told me that the man who shared this new illustration with him is himself a Christian missionary from Canada.
Please share the video or this entire article so that eyes may be opened to the truth of what God’s Kingdom is really like.
