These two commentaries in from Ingrid Schlueter of CrossTalk:
Click here to listen to the prayer at Harambee Church in Renton, Washington back in March. The sound of the Islamic call to prayer echoed through this Mark Driscoll, Acts 29 Network church at an Interfaith event where participants dialogued about “Jesus.” Harambee Church was so proud of that Muslim call to prayer in their facilities that they posted it on their website. Both Islamic and Christian sides declared the event a “tremendous success.”
The event was coordinated with CAIR, a Hamas front group that has so many links to terrorist individuals, groups and countries that even the FBI will no longer work with them. See here.
So today we have so-called Christian churches working with terrorist-backed groups, allowing pagans to pray in their facilities and sitting around sharing about who THEY think Jesus is.
Mark Driscoll has been repeatedly warned about at this site and on the websites of other discernment ministries. The full fruit of his “ministry” is now showing. (source)
The decision by Liberty University to invite Fox’s Glenn Beck as commencement speaker is making waves. It should. It is both revealing and prophetic that American evangelical Christians would have to look to a member of the Mormon church for moral and spiritual leadership. At a time when the Gospel of Jesus Christ should be held up as the only sure cure for our nation’s woes, officials at Liberty University, like so many others, have chosen to promote a therapeutic moral deism instead. Rather than bring a faithful preacher and Christian leader to issue the challenge of a lifetime to these graduating young people, Liberty offers a Mormon talk show host.
As admirable and needed as Glenn Beck’s crusade for our nation’s Constitution is, the lesson that should have been learned by graduates at Liberty University is that our true battle is against the enemy of our souls. He is the one who comes to steal, kill and destroy. The ultimate answer to the ravages of the enemy in our culture will never be the forcing of a public display of morality. The only true answer is found in the forgiveness of sins available through Jesus Christ, the Lamb for sinners slain. Glenn Beck cannot offer that because his church preaches another Jesus.
The following is a press release from a Christian group that also objects to the invitation of Glenn Beck to Liberty University. God is showing, by this invitation, how truly bankrupt American Christianity really is.
MADISON, Wisc., April 24 /Christian Newswire/ — In today’s confusing times, we need clear Biblical messages. By allowing Glenn Beck, a Mormon, to speak at Liberty University’s Commencement, Liberty’s message becomes off-focus.
According to the Liberty University’s website, Glenn Beck will address Liberty University’s Class of 2010 Commencement on Saturday, May 15. He will be joined by popular Baptist preacher Dr. Paige Patterson. Click here to continue reading this commentary.
