Worshipping the same God?

Posted: 12/29/2006 by that's Elbert in Christianity, News & Politics

Saw an AP article in the International Herald Tribune (http://www.iht.com) titled, “Spanish Muslims ask Pope to be allowed to pray in former historic mosque.” Apparently Spanish Muslims want to be able to pray in the Cathedral of Cordoba in southern Spain. It was a mosque until the 13th century, when it was converted to a church. The outer framework of the building was retained by the Christians, and a church was basically built inside. What is most disturbing about the article was the quote from the letter sent to the Pope Benedict XVI:

“What we wanted was not to take over that holy place, but to create in it, together with you and other faiths, an ecumenical space unique in the world which would have been of great significance in bringing peace to humanity.”

The article says that this could become a place “where Christians, Muslims and believers from other faiths might all be worshipping the same God.” The same God? Not! The one true God is worshipped by Christians alone. All others are idols and have no place in the Christian experience. Is this a move toward one world religion? Who knows, but it’s certainly reeks of the stench of the antichrist.

According to the article, it has been requested in the past, and it was denied.  Hopefully, they will continue to stand on the side of Scripture and faith and continue to deny.

For the time being you can read the article at this link: http://www.iht.com/articles/ap/2006/12/27/europe/EU_GEN_Spain_Muslims.php
