Chrislam: Ecumenical Compromise of Rick Warren

In this audio teaching on The Chrislam Movement:

Where Did Chrislam Come From?

Chrislam (Yoruba), a blend of Christianity and Islam among the Yoruba of Nigeria.

“Chrislam” is a neologism used to refer to syncretism between Christianity and Islam among the Yoruba of Nigeria, mentioned by Greenfield (2001) as an example of the “Yoruba genius for syncretism”.  -Wikipeidia

A short History of the origins of Wikipedia in Nigeria.  Anatomy of Chrislam!  Is one of compromise rooted in a trance

In the largest city, Lagos, there are traditional, old-line churches. But there also are hundreds of banners and posters that invite worshippers to newer smaller congregations. None is more unusual than this one — both Christian and Muslim.

The lectern holds both Quran and Bible. Invocations come loudly from both.

CONGREGANTS: Chrislam Akbar!

DE SAM LAZARO: Roughly half of Nigeria’s 140 million people are Muslim; the other half profess some form of Christianity. It’s been a political fault line over the years, and tensions have often erupted in deadly violence. Just last November, more than 300 people were killed in the town of Jos.

Pastor SHAMSUDDIN SAKA (Chrislam Minister, speaking at service): Listen to me. I want you to realize that Abraham had many children.

DE SAM LAZARO: But the 1,500 or so practitioners of what their preacher calls Chrislam see no religious fault line between the two faith groups. Shamsuddin Saka — he’s called Prophet — tells his audience they are all children of Abraham through Judeo-Christian tradition and through Islam.

Pastor SAKA: Abraham is the father of Christianity, the father of Islam. So why the Christians and Muslims are fighting?

DE SAM LAZARO: Saka was born Muslim, and it was after returning from a hajj pilgrimage to Mecca that he was inspired — he says instructed by God — to launch his new ministry

Pastor SAKA: That was about 19 years ago. Then there is a lot of people killing themselves in Nigeria 19 years ago. So I was praying and lying down and the Lord told me, “Make peace between Christian and Muslim.”

DE SAM LAZARO: He said he’s written letters to political leaders and traveled to affected areas when religious violence has broken out, urging reconciliation around common beliefs. But Saka’s most visible impact is in his immediate neighborhood, where he has brought the faiths together in a blended liturgy. It begins each Sunday morning with Quranic prayer in an open floor space that, like a mosque, has no pews. These then give way to prayer with the congregation seated in chairs — well, sometimes seated.

DE SAM LAZARO: This prayer is intense, a trance-like frenzy similar to a Pentecostal Christian service. It climaxes by a sermon from Saka that on this day took almost two hours. -Origins of Chrislam

Who is Promoting Chrislam? Rick Warren, Brian Houston!?

From Time: WASHINGTON — Defying some of his fellow conservative Christian critics, one of the most prominent religious leaders in the country told several thousand American Muslims on Saturday that “the two largest faiths on the planet” must work together to combat stereotypes and solve global problems. source – MSNBC

From Jim Hinch: Saddleback Church in Orange County, California, home to super-pastor Rick Warren (Obama inauguration, Purpose Driven Life, etc.) has joined forces with Southern California mosques to adopt a three-step plan for ending enmity between evangelical Christians and Muslims. – Rick Warren Ecumenical Pope!

Today to many “so called” Christian leaders have co signed to making room for the false, demonic religion of Islam.  So what is compromise?  Some of the biggest names (cowards) in the Church are out right compromisers who promote the ecumenical movement.  Ecumenism can also be defined more broadly: “a movement that promotes worldwide unity among all religions through greater cooperation.” For example, a Christian priest may invite a Muslim imam to speak in his pulpit, or a church may get together with a Hindu temple to hold a joint prayer service. Defined this way, ecumenism is definitely wrong. We are not to be “yoked together with unbelievers” (2 Corinthians 6:14; see also Galatians 1:6–9). Light and darkness have no fellowship with each other.

For this article, we will restrict the definition of ecumenism to “the move toward unity among Christian groups.” The important question is this: are ecumenical ventures right and biblical? Should we be involved with other “Christians” in joint ventures locally, nationally, or internationally? The answer is not absolute. Of course, unity among true Christians is important (Psalm 133:1; John 17:22). But what if some of those who profess Christianity actually deny certain fundamentals of the faith? One must consider each situation individually.” -Ecumenical Lies.

Hillsong Church founder Brian C. Houston has come under fire after a controversial sermon he delivered in December.

The Australian megachurch pastor has denied allegations that he promotes “Chrislam,” which blends the ideas of Christianity and Islam together.

“Do you know—take it all the way back into the Old Testament and the Muslim—and you, we actually serve the same God,” he said in the sermon. “Allah to a Muslim; to us, Abba Father God.”

Hillsong Church on Thursday tweeted the link to a statement by the pastor responding to the claims.

“Recently there have been false claims on social media that I believe Muslims and Christians worship the same God. This is incorrect,” Houston said in the statement entitled “Correction of Misinformation.”  -Hillsong Pastor Brian Houston on Chrislam

What is Wrong with Chrislam?

Shahram speaks around the nation with a heart to awaken America, and especially the church. As a former Muslim, he is deeply grieved over Christian pastors and missional leaders promoting this false gospel in their effort to be culturally sensitive to Muslims. Despite Chrislam’s proponents, Christians and Muslims do not worship the same God.

“You can not be a Muslim and a true follower of Jesus Christ. Chrislam not only endangers the hope of salvation for Muslims but threatens to lead many Christians astray from the truth of God’s Word.”
– Shahram Hadian

These questions and more will be answered in this presentation as “Chrislam” will be fully exposed:

1) Do Christians and Muslims worship the same God?
2) Is Allah the same God as Yahweh?
3) Can you be both Christian and Muslim at the same time?
4) Is the Divine Jesus of the Bible the same as Isa in the Quran?
5) Should Christians be reaching out to Muslims seeking “spiritual reconciliation” with them?
6) Should Christians and Muslims be holding joint worship
services?
7) Is the Quran equal in authority to the Bible?
8) Should Christians and Muslims seek to merge their religions into a new religion called Chrislam?
9) Should Bible translations be changed to take out the words “Father” and “Son of God” so as not to offend Muslims?
10) How are major Christian missions organizations and pastors
promoting an “Islamized Gospel?”  -What’s wrong with Chrislam?
