Rick Warren Asks for Allahs forgiveness

Yup, you read that right. See, he’s been working on a unity between Islam and Christianity. In the process, he signed a document. Want to see it? Oh…yeah…read the end of the Preamble. Better yet, here’s what to look for:

“Before we “shake your hand” in responding to your letter, we ask forgiveness of the All-Merciful One and of the Muslim community around the world.”

Wanna guess who the “All-Merciful One” is? It isn’t Jesus. It is Allah, the false god of Islam.

By signing this, Rick Warren, Senior “Pastor” and “wolf-in-sheep’s clothing” of Saddleback Church, committed open apostasy. Note that he wasn’t the only one. He just happens to be a very influential person in what I reluctantly call “evangelicalism”. Bill Hybels signed it as well as his other liberal friend, Robert Schuller and a host of other Christian “wannabes”.

My friends, this is called “shipwrecking the faith”. Hymenaeus and Alexander would be proud.

  1. Who is Allah? Is it the one who Muslims worship? Or is it the Arab word for God? The answer is that both Allah is the one Muslim worship, as well as the Arab word for God. Allah is not a word that is exclusively Muslim, but it is also used by Arab Christian and Arab Jews as a word for God.

    Understanding that, Rick Warren was not asking for forgiveness from some idol or from some false God, but from our LORD God Almighty. Why? The reason is that we in the Western World, including those who claim to be Christians, have been arogant and condesending towards those not of our culture and not of our respective countries.

    We in the Western World have become of this World and not of God, as our selfishness and our own desires have come before the will of God and before the mission he had set our for us in the Great Commission.

    After 9/11, I believe that most of us were deep in hatred for the wrong that was done against us and still are. And unfortunately, those in the Western World have classified all Arabs and Muslims as terrorists, and as the enemy.

    But what should we as Christians do? Should we hate them, even if some of them are responsible for acts of terror against people? I say we hate what they have done, but we shouldn’t hate the person, we should show them love, compassion, and respect, and prove to them that we aren’t evil as they claim us to be.

    As a result of 9/11, we have not followed or have forgotten an important aspect of Jesus’ teachings: To love our enemies. Matthew 5:43-45:

    “You have heard that it was said, ‘Love your neighbor and hate your enemy.” But I tell you, love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be children of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous.

    If you look closely at what Rick Warren is doing and has attempted to do, is to reach out to the Muslim and Arab communities, trying to heal the wounds, and to show love, compassion, and respect that Jesus has taught us to do.

    The titles “Allah” and “All Merciful One” are not defined by Warren. They are already defined in the minds of the Muslim readers. They understand that Warren is apologizing to their god, not to the Creator revealed in Scripture. That is the problem. “Allah” is universally defined as the god of Islam.

    Also, truly loving Muslims would be to highlight the differences in our beliefs. If someone is wrong, the greatest kindness would be to show them the truth. Our goal should be to see them converted to true faith in Jesus Christ, not to be good Muslims and good citizens. Warren is not “healing wounds” as much as possibly giving Muslims an excuse to not examine the claims of Christianity. We as followers of Christ, must be weary of using terminology that will mislead the lost.

    I agree that the Church needs to show love to Muslims and all the lost, but not at the expense of looking (and acting, ala our seeker-sensitive brethren) like them.

    It is so sad to hear that Rick Warren shared those words to those who believe in a religion that was created by satan. There is only on faith, Christianity. All other faiths, religions, cults all come from one creature, satan the “serpent”. How can a Christian apologize to satan and those who believe in satan. It’s as if Jesus would have bowed down to satan when satan offered him the kingdoms of the world. Rick Warren was so desperate in reachiing the moslems that he was willing to bow to the “all merciful one” who is satan.
    I don’t care what anyone says about “love thy neighbor” it does not mean you bow down to satan, and those who follow him. Because of this the “the church” will pay major price for this. Yes, even those of us who had nothing to do with this. Remember we are the Body of Christ, the Church, the Bride of Christ. Wow! we are the church of “Laodicea”.
    I am just Brother in Lord that is sad from what has just come to us.
    rad.
