While Rick Warren, a promoter of the New World Order, a Freemason and pastor of Saddleback Community Church in California, seems synonymous with Chrislam, it was not began by him. Chrislam began in Nigeria in the 1980's and has now been spread throughout the world. However, for the past several years, it has been Rick Warren who has pushed Chrislam onto the world stage.
Chrislam is an attempt to merge Christianity and Islam. Those doing so believe that Christianity and Islam are compatible. In other words they believe that one can be a Christian and a Muslim at the same time. The Christians involved are naive while the Muslims are, at least the radicalized ones, fulfilling their plan to kill all Christians and all those who are not Muslims. When reading the materials of Islam one can see there is no compromise in Islam with anyone and they use all ideas such as Chrislam as a Trojan horse to eventually murder those who have befriended them.
Scriptures tell us that the day of Christ will not come except there come a falling away first, 2 Thessalonians 2:2-3. The falling away is known as apostasy and those who fall away are called apostates. In 2 Timothy 3:1-5, we find that in the last days perilous times will come and the apostates are described. Verse five goes on to say that they have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof and from such we are to turn away from. Those joining in the Chrislam movement are some of the apostates mentioned in the books of Timothy and Thessalonians, and other Scriptures. This movement of Chrislam is filled with preachers that have a desire to fill the pews in their churches and thereby add to their income. These are false teachers, wolves in sheeps clothing, mentioned by Christ, Matthew 7:15; 24:11; 13:22, and Peter and John also mention this false prophets, 2 Peter 2:1; 1 John 4:1.
The claim is that Islam and Christianity are compatible religions. First look at the teaching of both on Jesus Christ. Rick Warren has prayed in the name of Isa which is the Muslim Jesus who they claim to be a prophet and not God. Rick Warren is wrong in doing this and is among the apostates. Islam claims that Jesus never claimed to be God nor the son of God and did not die on the cross. What does the Bible, the only Word of God, say about Jesus being God and/or the son of God?
As one can see from these comparisons the Jesus of the Christians is not the same Jesus of Islam. It can be seen that the statement that Jesus never claimed to be God nor the son of God is, according to the Bible, a false statement. Jesus is fully God and fully man and since that is true, the god Allah is a false god, one of many false gods. This is a major reason the two religions are not compatible.
Former President George W. Bush has said that Christians, Jews, and Muslims all worship the same God, which is not true. Another reason Islam and Christianity are not compatible is that they worship different Gods. In the chart below are some contrasts between the God of Christianity and The god of Islam.
|The Christian God||Allah, The Islamic god|
|Man was made from the dust of the earth and was made in the image of God, Genesis 1:26, and God breathed into man's nostrils the breath of life, Genesis 2:7. Man doesn't look like God but is like him in his ability to reason and has the freedom of choice.||Man was not made in the image of God but out of the dust of the earth and Allah breathed life into man.|
|Christ died on the cross, 1 Peter 2:24 and His blood turns away the wrath of God, 1 John 2:2, from the sinner when the sinner accepts the finished work of Christ on the cross by faith, Romans 5:1; 1 Peter 1:18-19.||Nothing in Islam pays mankinds debt to sin, Romans 6:23. There is just a sincere confession of sin and repentance by the sinner.|
|God hates liars and liars will go into a lake of fire forever, Revelation 21:8||The Koran teaches those of the Islamic faith to lie.|
|Christians will rule and reign with Christ in the new heavens and the new earth, Revelation 22:3-5.||There will be an afterlife which will be an ideal life or Paradise for the faithful Muslim.|
|Angels are created spirit beings some of which fell into sin and are referred to as demons and/or fallen angels, Revelation 16:14. There are also the unfallen angels that carry out the will of God.||Angels are created beings, created from light, without free will that serve God.|
|Nothing is to be added to the Word of God and nothing is to be taken from it, so none of the works of Muhammad, including the Koran, are inspired nor any part of a Word from God, Revelation 22:18-19.||The final revelation of God to all of mankind given through the archangel Gabriel to Muhammad over a 23-year period. It is without error and guarded from error by Allah.|
|Muhammad was born in 570 A.D. in Mecca and started the Islamic religion without inspiration from God.||Muhammad is the greatest of all the prophets of Allah whose Koran is the greatest of all inspired books.|
|The Bible is the inspired and inerrant Word of God in the original manuscripts, 2 Timothy 3:16; 2 Peter 1:20.||The Bible has been corrupted and is correct only when it agrees with the Koran.|
|Jesus was crucified for the sins of the world, 1 Peter 2:24. He is the ONLY way to the Father, John 14:6, and the only name given under heaven whereby men MUST be saved, Acts 4:12.||Jesus was not crucified. God allowed Judas to be crucified in His place since he looked like Jesus.|
|Satan is a fallen angel that opposes God and seeks to destroy humanity, Isaiah 14:12-15; Ezekiel 28:13-15.||Satan is a fallen jinn. Jinn are neither angels nor men but are created beings with free will and created from fire.|
|Throughout the Bible God has revealed Himself as a Trinity, one God in three Persons: God the Father, God the Son, and God the Holy Spirit.||Allah is God and is one person and there is no trinity.|
|Heaven is the place where God dwells. God will eventually dwell with mankind in the New Jerusalem that comes down from heaven to the new earth. Believers will rule and reign with Jesus Christ forever.||Heaven is a place of bliss where the desires of all Muslims are met.|
|Hell is a place unbelievers are sent when they die physically. In the end they are resurrected and stand at the Great White Throne in judgment and the unbelievers, death, and hell will be cast into a lake of fire to be there forever, Revelation 20:14-15. This is called the second death, Revelation 21:8.||Hell is a place of eternal torment in fire for those who are not Muslims including those who were and their works and faith were not enough.|
|Jesus is the second person of the Trinity who became flesh and is fully God and fully man, John 1:1-14.||Jesus is a prophet but not the son of God and was not crucified.|
|There will be a catching away (called the rapture) of all believers who receive a new body, an incorruptible body, 1 Thessalonians 4:17; 1 Corinthians 15:52-53. At the end of the millennium there will be a resurrection of all unbelievers, who are at that time dead, with them being cast into a lake of fire, Revelation 20:11-15.||There is a bodily resurrection only with some going to heaven and some to hell.|
|Salvation is by grace through faith and not by works, Ephesians 2:8-9. No amount of works, good deeds, will get anyone into heaven, Isaiah 64: 6.||Salvation is for those who have surrendered to Islam and follow the commands of Allah given in the Koran.|
|Jesus, in the Bible, commands Christians to love their neighbor as themselves, Matthew 22:39.||Muhammad in the Koran commands Muslims to kill their neighbors if they have not surrendered to Islam.|
|Christians are to have but one wife.||Those of Islam can marry four women.|
|Christians speak of their heavenly Father.||God is never called the heavenly Father in Islam and never described as loving.|
|Christianity is not a religion but is a faith in which God sent his Son to die for you||The Islamic religion has a God that requires you to send your son to die for him|
|Theologically a believer's allegiance is to Jesus Christ.||Those of Islam have their allegiance to Allah, the moon god of Arabia.|
|Non-Christians will be eternally separated from God in a lake of fire forever, Revelation 21:8.||Those who are not Muslims will be cast into Hell.|
|The Holy Spirit is the third person of the Trinity and is therefore God the Holy Spirit.||The Holy Spirit is the arch-angel Gabriel that gave the words of the Koran to Muhammad.|
As can be seen from the chart above the Christian God is opposed to the Muslim god Allah in all respects and cannot therefore be the same. One must be the true God and the other a false god. According to God's Word, the Bible, the Christian God is the ONLY God. Thus we can see again that Islam and Christianity are not compatible and therefore can not be merged as some churches are doing.
Some say that Christians are to love their neighbors and so they must have a relationship and fellowship with them. This sounds good but Scriptures say otherwise. Remember in 2 Timothy 3:5 Christians are told to turn away from those who only have a form of godliness but deny the power thereof. Then in Ephesians 5:11 Christians are told to have no fellowship with the unfruitful works of darkness, which Islam is of darkness â€“ of Satan, but rather Christians are to reprove them. As we have seen in the comparisons above Islam and Christianity have different Gods and the Jesus of the two are different. Then Amos asked us â€œcan two walk together, except they be agreed?, Amos 3:3. The answer to the question is clearly no.
Going further, the Vatican says that Allah and the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob are the same God. Rick Warren says that the Pope is the head of all Christians on the planet. The Vatican's claim that Allah and the Christian God are the same is not true, as we have seen. The claim made by Rick Warren is untrue but can you see the intent to establish a one world religion by these apostates? It should be obvious. These are things that Christians should clearly stay away from as we were told in Timothy and not something we should be involved in or support in any way. It is also something we should be warning others against.
In addition to these differences there is a major difference in the way of salvation. To the Christian, Jesus said He was the only way to the Father, John 14:6. In Acts 4:12, speaking of Jesus, it is said that He is the only name given under heaven whereby man must be saved. Christians are not saved by doing good works but by grace only, through faith only, Ephesians 2:8-9. But we do see that Christians are created to do good works, Ephesians 2:10. On the other side, Muslims are saved by doing good works and can not be sure they have done enough to be saved until the end of this world. They can only be assured of salvation if the die while trying to kill Christians or others that do not believe in Islam. These are directly opposed to one another and again are not compatible and therefore one can not merge Christianity and Islam.
The Bible is the only Word of God while the Koran is the word of Muhammad. Of Course Muslims claim it is from God. Islam is a religion of darkness, one of Satan and therefore one cannot use both the Bible and the Koran, as they are directly opposed to one another. Some churches that support Chrislam place the Bible and the Koran in their pews, side by side. Why put Satan's word along side of God's Word? There is no Allah, according to the Bible, there is the one God, consisting of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit and His name is Yahweh, or Jehovah as some use. Islam does not believe that God is a trinity, that there is just God. This is a teaching directly opposite of the biblical teaching of the trinity. Of course the word trinity isn't used in the Bible but the trinity is taught from the beginning to the end of the Bible.
One can not be a Christian and a Muslim because they are not compatible. One is of the true God, Yahweh and the other of the god of Satan. One has salvation through grace and faith while the other is through good works and murder. One has Jesus the Son of God and the other denies He is the Son of God. One believes in a trinity and the other does not. Islam believes in lying and the God of Christianity hates liars. There is nothing that can be agreed upon between Christianity and Islam unless one is an apostate. The belief in the merging of Christianity and Islam is heresy.
