Christian clergy helped a Muslim mosque open in a Pentecostal church.

“Can two walk together, except they be agreed?” Amos 3:3 (KJV)

EDITOR’S NOTE: What does the compromised Laodicean church look like these days? It looks like this. Local pastors in North Carolina not only helped a mosque to take over a church building, but they also participated in the opening service in prayer to the moon god Allah. Do you think these pastors took a moment to tell their new Muslim neighbors that without becoming born again by faith in Jesus Christ alone they would burn for an eternity in a place called Hell? Nope. That would be hate speech. 

“It’s open faith; we’re brothers,” Ali Mohammad, an organizer of the mosque, tells North Carolina’s News & Observer.  The Muslims are stripping the church of its Christian roots, including removing any crosses and handing them over to pastors in the area.

When they opened on Saturday, Christian clergy, including Pastor Jim Melnyk of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church, participated in the ceremony. Other pastors from Methodist and Baptist congregations were also present.

“I see it as an important statement of community, that we take each other’s faiths seriously,” Melnyk says. “I want to acknowledge how important it is to build bridges in the community when we’re living in a time that is so anxiety ridden and there’s so much mistrust going on in the world around us. It’s important when we can find common ground and share our community.”

But Melnyk’s participation is not just a gesture of neighborly compassion.

“Christians, Jews and Muslims are all people of the book, and we all claim what the Hebrew Scriptures call the Abrahamic faith,” Melnyk tells WND. “We call it the Old Testament, and Muslims also claim the Bible.”

He says he personally worshipped Allah during the service.

“Obviously I’m a Christian, and I would not live comfortably within the full teachings of Islam, but I can recognize where we share teachings, and recognize the call to treat one another mercifully, and as the one God treats us mercifully, and that translates equally into Christianity as well as it does Islam,” Melnyk says. source

    Does not scripture say that once having accepted The Lord and then leave and serve other gods is like a dog eating its own vomit?
