‘ONE WORLD RELIGION’ Event Gathers Muslims, Jews and Christians to Pray

‘Unprecedented and potentially historic. That’s how organisers are billing the 2016 Mekudeshet Festival just around the corner this fall.

It might more accurately be dubbed a predecessor of the ‘one world religion’ prophesied in the Bible. Certainly an ‘end times’ event.

Christians, Jews and Muslims are expected to flock to the Holy City for a “spiritual gathering” dubbed Amen—A House of Prayer For All Believers. The self-stated goal is to create “a single home for the world’s three major religions to harness the city’s ancient powers to inspire artists, musicians and cultural figures from around the world to redefine their art and traditions and connect amid troubling times.”

“We will study, argue—yes, this is also allowed—and pray, together and alone,” says Mekudeshet artistic director Itay Mautner. “We will see if it is possible, despite all the corporeal difficulties and earthly obstacles, to create a new reality.”

You mean to create a one world religion?

Expect to see more of these kinds of gatherings in the months ahead. Although we should seek opportunities to love people of all faiths, events like Amen typically breed compromise in the name of unity.

As I’ve said before, dialogue is one thing. Compromising the tenets of Christianity is altogether different. Using art and culture as a shill, Amen appears to be nothing more than an attempt to redefine religion.

This reminds me of Pope Francis’ recent move to gather Christians, Muslims, Jews and Hindus together in prayer.

Disturbing video footage shows the pope receiving a demonic statue from a Buddhist and bending down to pray according to Muslim tradition.

“Many think differently, feel differently, seeking God or meeting God in different ways,” he says. “In this crowd, in this range of religions, there is only one certainty we have for all: We are all children of God.”

Here’s the problem: You can seek God in many ways, but there’s only one way to the Father. There is only one way to meet God, and His name is Jesus Christ. To even hint at anything else causes confusion at best and deceives many at worst. Events like Amen are a tool in the enemy’s hand to dilute the one true and living God’s gospel of salvation.

Iranian Christian Converts’ Right to Seek Asylum Can’t Be Denied

Iranian Christian converts must be granted the right to a fair evaluation of danger by European governments before they can be denied asylum and sent back to the Islamic Republic, the top human rights court in Europe ruled last Wednesday.

Apostasy from Islam is considered a criminal offence that is punishable by death.

A stranded Iranian woman cries as she embraces a Christian colleague who just had his mouth sewed shut during a protest at the Greek-Macedonian border near the Greek village of Idomeni, November 26, 2015. Countries along the Balkan route taken by hundreds of thousands of migrants seeking refuge in western Europe last week began filtering the flow, granting passage only to those fleeing conflict in Syria, Iraq and Afghanistan.
On the ABC 7.30 Report: the Refugee Council’s CEO, Paul Power has accused Australia of “cherry picking” Middle Eastern refugees to be resettled in Australia. Mr Power said it was wrong to respond to the Syrian refugee crisis with a programme that prioritizes persecuted minorities, when the vast majority of Syria’s nearly 5 million refugees are Muslim – many who have suffered their own persecution at the hands of the Assad regime and Shia militias because they are Sunnis.
I hope Malcolm Turnbull remains firm on his decision to give persecuted Christians priority over Muslims, as there is no doubt they are not accepted in any Muslim country, let alone go back to the Muslim country from which they came. The government did not reveal to the 7.30 Report where the extra 12,000 refugees will come from.
If you agree that Christians should receive priority, write to your local member to support Malcolm Turnbull’s original decision to give priority to persecuted Christians and other minority groups.
