Jesus Christ told His disciples during His earthly ministry that He is the way, the truth, and the life and that no one comes to the Father but through Him. Jesus Christ revealed the Father to us and has made the way for us to spend eternity with Him. He told us there is only One God and we must love Him with all our heart, mind, soul, and strength.
1 “Let not your heart be troubled; you believe in God, believe also in Me. 2 In My Father’s house are many mansions; if it were not so, I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself; that where I am, there you may be also. 4 And where I go you know, and the way you know. 5 Thomas said to Him, “Lord, we do not know where You are going, and how can we know the way?” 6 Jesus said to him, “I am the way, the truth, and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me. 7 If you had known Me, you would have known My Father also; and from now on you now Him and have seen Him.” John 14:1-7
29 Jesus answered him, “The first of all the commandments is : ‘Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God, the Lord is one. 30 And you shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, with all your soul, with all your mind, and with all your strength.’ This is the first commandment. 31 And the second, like it, is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” Mark 12:29-31
These verses which record for us what our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ taught about God our Father, make it clear there is only One God, one way to God, and One God whom we worship. Why would there be any move within the visible church to be joined with false religions that worship false gods? There are leaders within the visible church who believe and teach that there is no difference between faith in Christ and the worship of Allah. One Christian leader who has left us with a written record of his accord with the false religion of Islam is prominent within a major Baptist denomination. He was joined in his apostasy with other prominent leaders of this denomination. Since this apostasy is incontrovertible, what I want to know is why haven’t these men been rebuked and removed by leaders in this denomination, and why would anyone remain within this denomination which is a haven for wicked apostates?
There was a letter written by Muslim clerics to American pastors a few years ago called “A Common Word Between Us and You”. Pastors from our country responded and in their response placed Allah and God, Mohammed and Jesus Christ, the Koran and the Bible, right alongside one another and compared them favorably to one another. Rick Warren and Bill Hybels both signed the letter from the American pastors to the Muslim clerics. Rick Warren from Saddleback Church in Southern California has had a very aggressive outreach to Muslims. He is not only ecumenical with the Catholics, but also with Muslims. Both Rick Warren and Bill Hybels are prominent leaders within the Southern Baptist Convention.
Following the lead of Warren and Hybels, Ed Stetzer, Vice President of Lifeway Insights Division and executive director of Lifeway Research, is going to speak at the upcoming Spreading Peace Convocation which is a gather of Christian pastors and Islamic imams designed to encourage accord and understanding between the two religions. This Convocation is scheduled to take place the third week of October at the First Baptist Church of Glenarden, Maryland. Lifeway is the publishing arm of the Southern Baptist Convention and is rife with apostate publications leading many into peril and perdition. Since prominent church leaders Rick Warren and Bill Hybels, and the executive director of Lifeway Research are joining hands with a false religion why would any genuine believer in Jesus Christ remain within the confines of this apostate denomination filled with lying liars telling lies?
Since Jesus Christ made these declarations recorded for us in the Holy Scriptures, how is it that there are any within the visible church who would dare to align our Holy God with false gods and false religions? These deceivers within the Southern Baptist Convention are making determined strides to unite the Christian faith with a foreign god. God’s command to all of His children is to separate from the apostates. If you are truly saved through faith in Jesus Christ, His command to you is to turn away from these apostates and get out of the apostate Southern Baptist Convention, filled with lying liars telling lies turning many away from following Jesus Christ Who alone is the way, the truth and the life, the only way to God the Father.
17 Now I urge you, brethren, note those who cause divisions and offenses, contrary to the doctrine which you learned, and avoid them. 18 For those who are such do not serve our Lord Jesus Christ, but their own belly, and by smooth words and flattering speech deceive the hearts of the simple. 19 For your obedience has become known to all. Therefore I am glad on your behalf; but I want you to be wise in what is good, and simple concerning evil. 20 And the God of peace will crush Satan under your feet shortly. The grace of our Lord Jesus Christ be with you. Amen. Romans 16:17-20
14 Do not be unequally yoked together with unbelievers. For what fellowship has righteousness with lawlessness? And what communion has light with darkness? 15 And what accord has Christ with Belial? Or what part has a believer with an unbeliever? 16 And what agreement has the temple of God with idols? For you are the temple of the living God. As God has said: “I will dwell in them And walk among them. I will be their God, And they shall be My people.” 17 Therefore “Come out from among them And be separate, says the Lord. Do not touch what is unclean, And I will receive you.” 18 “I will be a Father to you, And you shall be My sons and daughters, Says the Lord Almighty.” Therefore, having these promises, beloved, let us cleanse ourselves from all filthiness of the flesh and spirit, perfecting holiness in the fear of God. 2 Corinthians 6:14-7:1
Lord Jesus Christ, please convict and deliver Your children from the wiles of the enemy who seeks to destroy any and all who will listen to his lies. Open the eyes of Your children by Your Holy Spirit and bring Your children out from among the lying heretics and apostates. Even so Jesus, may it be so.
