There are somethings that were never meant to be together, according to the word of God, but we are entering a time when people will fail to recognize the living God- opting for a god of their own choosing, for: profit, temporary status and power… thinking they are right and would lead others to their destruction. One of the things never meant to be together is the false assumption (or lie) that there is but one god found in what the world calls Monotheism. This is not the case and is a gross misrepresentation of what some might call ‘a knowledgeable guess.’ The fact is and has never been more clear cut and divided than the difference between the living God of Israel and the god of Islam… one mirrors the other but is not the same.
As it comes to extremism throughout the world, even extremists are different in their approach to what they speak out about and the actions they take. I’m not suggesting here that either of the examples are worth emulating (for they are not) or that they should be considered as proper in their attempts to what they would bring attention to. Let me explain what I’m saying… with christian extremists, individuals (sometimes even groups) have been violent against: abortion clinics (places that take a life or stop a life), gays (for their lifestyles or their choices), or used by political means to gain a showing of (or the appearance of) God’s support for a one sided cause. The notion of God agreeing with His Name being used for practices He Himself deplores is as repugnant as it is wrong! Since the ‘New Testament’ times… to forgive an enemy and to love your enemy is still the structure of common understanding coming from the Bible. With the extremists of Islam… we see what is being done in the Middle East, attempts to create a Caliphate (domination) and the existence of the power struggle between Shia and Sunni is clearly evident. There is nothing peaceful here, seen by its fruits… hanging lowest on the tree is the destruction of Jews and Christians alike.
Based on the aforementioned assertions, there cannot be ‘one god’ coming from Monotheism… there are two separate viewpoints emerging from them both, and they are both diametrically in opposition to each other- one seemingly against the God of Israel and the people of Israel (making the claim they are the same as the God of Israel) and the other is the God of Israel.
25 And Jesus knew their thoughts, and said unto them, Every kingdom divided against itself is brought to desolation; and every city or house
divided against itself shall not stand:
This truth is also to be understood… something as apparently different should not be merged together. To attempt to do such a thing would either: dilute its meaning, authority, importance or exclusivity. This is not to be done with the word of God (the Torah or the Bible) or the understandings coming from them. There can be nothing good coming from trying to mix one faith with another… God and an idol (of idolatry) are not on equal footing.
9 Remember the former things of old: for I am God, and there is none else; I am God, and there is none like me,
31 As for God, his way is perfect; the word of the LORD is tried: he is a buckler to all them that trust in him.
6 By the word of the LORD were the heavens made; and all the host of them by the breath of his mouth.
36 And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man’s word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.
6 But to us there is but one God, the Father, of whom are all things, and we in him; and one Lord Jesus Christ, by whom are all things, and we by him.
This is not what is being said today, coming from a man… a Pastor, an evangelical(?). This has been going on for some time, even been disputed (denied) to be the truth. I ask you to look for yourself and see the fruits of effort for yourself. I give you ‘Chrislam,’ the emerging view (or the emerging church belief) that Christianity and Islam should be ‘one world religion.’ You can believe it or deny it on your own. See the page already up on Rick Warren, a page with information on him by ISNA, found at this link. There is actually some indications he might have membership in the global cabal minded organization named the CFR (Council for Foreign Relations); which is where we get the United Nations from… those also interested in seeing ‘a one world governance’ to come as well. Here is a snipet with this admission,”In fact,” Warren added, ”as a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and Oxford Analytica, I might know as much about the Middle East as you.” Is this not the beginning of the end… the clearer signs of the times in which we live- drawing closer to an eminent return of our Lord and Savior Himself, Jesus Christ? Here is an article with a slew of topics on UN goals (hopefully all will be found as incredulous as I see them to be… by yourself), one article you might want to look at before you rush to a decision for or against what you might think already. Also, from the ‘Let Us Reason’ Ministries… is this article in full, titled,”Rick Warren’s Panacea- aA peace Plan for the WHOLE WORLD that is waiting.”

Most men continue shut up as in a dark dungeon, in love with their sins, being blinded and lulled asleep by Satan, through worldly pleasures, interests, and pursuits. But the awakened sinner discovers his dreadful condition. Then he feels that the mercy and grace of God form his only hope. And the terrors of the law are often used by the convincing Spirit, to show the sinner his need of Christ, to bring him to rely on his sufferings and merits, that he may be justified by faith. Then the law, by the teaching of the Holy Spirit, becomes his loved rule of duty, and his standard for daily self-examination. In this use of it he learns to depend more simply on the Savior.
The putting on of Christ according to the gospel, consists not in outward imitation, but in a new birth, an entire change. He who makes believers to be heirs, will provide for them. Therefore our care must be to do the duties that belong to us, and all other cares we must cast upon God. And our special care must be for heaven; the things of this life are but trifles. The city of God in heaven, is the portion or child’s part. Seek to be sure of that above all things. Having accepted Christ Jesus as their Lord and Savior, and relying on him alone for justification and salvation, they become the sons of God.
2 And he cried against the altar in the word of the LORD, and said, O altar, altar, thus saith the LORD; Behold, a child shall be born unto the house of David, Josiah by name; and upon thee shall he offer the priests of the high places that burn incense upon thee, and men’s bones shall be burnt upon thee.
Have you heard of ‘the Yale Paper‘ or,”Loving God and Neighbor Together”… one signed by Rick Warren and many others. John G. Stackhouse, Jr. also signed it but has posted a reason ‘why’ he did which is good to know. I’m not against living together or loving my neighbor but do not see this same sentiment expressed in Ramallah today- maybe they didn’t get the message?
