Picture interfaith gatherings as suggested by many, and the conversations that could likely ensue. Around the room people of various religions and cults express their various beliefs with each attendee listening intently in hopes of heightening their sensitivity toward and understanding of all religious denominations.

A man explains that Scientology gave him a better understanding of the basic good of man, and explains that Jesus Christ is a legend that lived on other planets before life on earth began. People, although not necessarily agreeing with his viewpoint, nod their heads in appreciation of this man’s religious stance as they do when another individual puts forth the belief that Jesus and Satan are spirit brothers born in Heaven.

Another individual expresses the conviction that Jesus Christ is not the Son of God. “Allah had no children”, is the clarification. A young lady speaks up, saying “I’m totally agreeable with people reading the Quran, the Bible, or whatever. I personally draw my spiritual wisdom and inspiration from the Dhammapada, the Buddhist scriptures.”

A man voices his belief in a God of love, thus demonstrating there can be no Hell. Many people, vocalize their agreement.

Varying beliefs and convictions surrounding the subjects of The Living God, Allah, the Trinity, Jesus, the virgin birth, the cross, the resurrection, eternal salvation, Hell, judgment, the inerrancy of God’s Written Word, Creation and works are openly addressed, with everybody being open-minded and non-judgmental. After all, the interfaith philosophy is “To each his own!”

Although interfaith gatherings are promoted to increase understanding and respect for all religions and cults, as well as to provide deeper sensitivity toward each other’s faith, such psychological maneuvering causes many to believe they can be instrumental in an emergent ‘Christian’ solidarity, when in actuality the “take-away” from such meetings is a dangerous and delusional ‘comfort’ that assures ‘all religions lead to God’. “…Take heed that no man deceive you.” (Matthew 24:4,5,1l)

It is ludicrous to expect religions to cohesively unite, or to even consider religious solidarity. Interfaith dialogue will not halt radical Islam! As for people of different faiths coming together to celebrate Christmas and Easter, obviously such services will be free-thinking in nature. How else, since some people believe in the virgin birth, others don’t. Others rejoice over the empty tomb, while some scoff at Jesus’ resurrection. True believers will avoid such services because to ‘go along to get along’ is not an option, and here’s the reason why!

True Christian are sinners who have been saved by God’s grace through the shed blood of Jesus Christ! (Ephesians 1:7, Hebrews 9:14) True Christians believe Jesus is the Son of God and the Savior of humanity who’s coming as Christ or the Messiah was prophesied in the Old Testament. (Read Isaiah 7:14, Isiah 52:3-7, Micah 5:2, Psalm 41:9 for verification). Christianity, therefore, is based on the life and teachings of Jesus Christ as presented in the New Testament. It is based on His death, burial and resurrection. (Read Matthew 27:32-56, Luke 23:26-43, Luke 24 for confirmation.) Christianity is based and firmly stands on these unassailable and verifiable historic happenings. Facts are facts! Thus, no born-again believer will turn his/her back on God by tolerating any efforts to water down the Gospel or to encourage religious apostasy. (Ephesians 5:11) By the way, even if many perceive the Cross as nothing more than a ‘t’ shaped object to be replaced at will, it is the precious symbol of genuine Christianity for every believer!

Christian believers, as do the interfaith proponents, have the same freedom to freely speak. But we will not speak for an ungodly and unattainable goal of achieving peaceful coexistence by supporting interfaith religious liberalism! Instead, we will speak-out with frankness, honesty and compassion in an attempt to lead people to the Lord! Perhaps perceived as religious intimidation, we will boldly serve the Lord, and give witness to the Truth (John 14:6), with a deep desire to snatch lost souls from the bowels of Hell! Should I, among many others, be classified as one of those who believes their belief and faith superior to all others, I am, “For I am not ashamed of the gospel of Christ: for it is the power of God unto salvation to everyone that believeth; to the Jew first, and also the Greek (Gentile).” (Romans 1:16) True believers are never ashamed!

Interfaith meetings, unintentional or not, are another step in an effort to destroy genuine Christianity. If people will only set aside ‘self’, and avoid the pull of religious and psychological rhetoric, the Bible will wonderfully prove itself to be inerrant. Simply look into both world and biblical history, research the Bible for scientific facts known years before modern man, read up on biblical archaeology, and recognize the long-ago prophesied condition of today. (Current conditions are found in II Timothy 3:1-4/Romans 1:26-32/II Timothy 3:1-3/II Peter 2,3.)

Rather than people being drawn into a vision of utopia, cured of all conflicts through interfaith dialogue, people need to find Jesus! Unlike, the unachievable interfaith fantasy, Jesus is but words away. “For whosoever shall call upon the name of the Lord shall be saved.” (Romans 10:13)
