ARE YOU CHRISLAMIC, CHRISTOPHOBIC, OR CHRISTOCENTRIC?

Date: Mon Feb 21 22:18:36 2011

There has been a considerable move toward inclusion in evangelical circles. The wake-up call came when Carlton Pearson of Oral Roberts University admitted he did not believe that those outside of Christ were condemned, and similar thinking has been spreading like a cancer through Christian institutions of higher learning as well as many churches.

Robert H. Schueller had his affirming dialogues with the Muslims which combined with his other aberrant theology brought bankruptcy upon the Crystal Cathedral, Then Rick Warren asks forgiveness of Allah and believes Christians can pursue common goals with Jews and Muslims - of course leaving out Jesus in the process. (I knew there was a reason I never bought or read those "Purpose Driven" books!)

We have now heard that some mainline churches are actually placing the Quran alongside the Bible in the pews! Churches in diverse places of the United States are now openly promoting a Chrislamic gospel! It is the most foolish of apostasies and birthed in extreme ignorance both of what true Christianity is and what Islam really is.

Nobody is preaching hate or intolerance, only allegiance to our calling in Christ to win the Jew and the Greek, the Muslims and the Buddhists, the Hindus and the Sikhs, and all others, not to equate Christ to false religions and false Gods. Christ alone is the way to the Father, which brings us to the second term of the day ñ Christophobic.

People are not offended talking about God. Krushchev talked about God. So did Gorbachev. So do almost all American politicians and celebrities when they receive their awards or athletes when they perform well. Sometimes the name of Jesus actually makes it in. Jesus my ìfriendî. Jesus "my most admired philosopher". Even Simon and Garfunkel included "Jesus" in their hit song "Mrs. Robinson". What is important is what usually goes UNSAID. That is CHRIST. Jesus Christ. Paul made those words almost inseparable. Christ means "The Anointed One". Not ìanî anointed one. He is the one and the only. The only God in the flesh, the only way to salvation, the only intermediary between God and man. That title of our Lord God is avoided like the plague. We need to use his title often, and make the words Jesus and Christ as inseparable as Paul did.

In other words, we need to be Christocentric. Christ is the all in all. God the Father crowned him with glory and honor and made him Lord of All. Jesus Christ is the express image of the Father, full of grace and truth. Let us be certain to give Jesus Christ all the glory and honor. If we are in Jesus Christ, we are betrothed to him. He will marry us. As the bride of Christ, we flirt with no others. We do not flirt with Judaism, we do not flirt with Islam, we do not flirt with naturalism, Spiritism, Theosophy or any other system of thought. We are devoted fully to the Lord Christ. He alone is our joy, He alone is our fount of truth, Our God is a jealous God, and he will not tolerate you if you share your love with any other. Some people think they are more tolerant than God is. You know, they are right. In the end, God will destroy all who reject the Lord Jesus Christ or who have other gods besides him. Remember the first commandment? Not a bad idea these days to keep yourselves out of God's woodshed. Blessed be the name of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ!
