CHURCH HOSTS GLOBAL FAITH FORUM FOR WORLD’S RELIGIONS
By Paul Proctor
November 17, 2010
The Christian Post reported recently that NorthWood Church in Keller, Texas, scheduled a Global Faith Forum for Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and atheists in hopes they would “listen to one another and even build friendships.” The report stated, “the forum isn’t a gathering of theologians to debate religions,” but instead, an “opportunity for people of multiple faiths to get to know one another, start conversations, and learn from each other.”
Yeah, try and find that in your Bible. I guess the Apostle Paul blew it. Just think what he could have learned from that infamous gathering of religious diversity on Mars Hill and all of the friends he might have made if he hadn’t been so intent on preaching Christ.
“Ye adulterers and adulteresses, know ye not that the friendship of the world is enmity with God? whosoever therefore will be a friend of the world is the enemy of God.” – James 4:4
The Christian Post piece contained so many unbiblical comments, I hardly know where to start; but start I will, with some curious quotes from NorthWood Church’s senior pastor, Bob Roberts:
1. Roberts: “…there is a better way than hate and fear.”
So, if Christians obey God’s Word, more specifically, the call to “come out from among them, and be ye separate,” they are being hateful and afraid? Kind of plays right into the whole hate crimes designation being thrust upon bible-believers today, doesn’t it? How gratifying it must be for globalists to have an understanding pastor in their corner.
