The Islamizing of America's Churches

A close friend just sent this to me. Honestly, I haven't read it yet and I've never heard of the people that put it out. However, I know my friend and I trust my friend. - Reggie

It started with Bill Hybels, pastor of Willowcreek Community Church in Barrington, Illinois. Shortly after the 9-11 attacks, Hybels brought Egyptian Muslim imam, Fisal Mammauda onto his church’s stage as an opportunity for his congregation to exercise “discernment” in understanding Islam. Islam, of course, was the real victim of 9-11, at least from Hybel’s perspective. Prior to giving ear to Mammauda, Hybels preached a sermon entitled, “Religion Gone Awry.” The message was that Christianity is the religion that has gone awry because of backlashes against the Muslim community in America. He stressed that Islam is not a violent religion, and that Christians should get their facts straight before airing their views on the subject.

The performance was a defense of Islam, with Hybels lobbing softballs to Hammauda, asking him to explain what Islam really teaches. The answer, in short, was that true Muslims are peaceful and were against what took place on 9-11. In the process, Hybels allowed Hammauda without protest to preach his gospel of salvation by good deeds in the name of Allah. Hybels appealed to Christians that they should respect and understand Islam. (See “Hybels appeals for tolerance toward Muslims,” Media
Spotlight, Vol. 24 – No. 3)

Next came Rick Warren, a disciple of Hybels, and internationally recognized as the pastors’ pastor. Warren has called for cooperation between Muslims and Christians to implement his P.E.A.C.E. plan.

Little-by-little, church-by-church, Muslims are purposefully gaining access to Christians in order to propagate their faith and to disarm Christians to the reality of Islam’s violent nature—a nature that was spawned with the emergence of their “prophet” Mohammed in the early seventh century. Mohammed and his later disciples have spread Islam across the world through the power of the sword. But that is not allowed to be mentioned. Instead Christians are treated to the earlier, more benign suras of the Koran that spoke well of Christians and Jews while Mohammed was trying to convert them to Islam; his later call for Christians and Jews to be killed for rejecting Islam are never mentioned.

Nor are the countless wars in the name of Allah occurring all over the world today ever spoken of.

The Islamizing of the churches has been a relatively silent process. But with each inroad into a church the Muslims have become more bold in proclaiming their false teachings that denigrate Jesus and blaspheme the true God, YHWH.

The putsch from Islam is largely being carried out by the Muslim Brotherhood, the Sunni Muslim movement founded in Egypt in 1928. The Muslim Brotherhood is the motivation behind most of the terrorist movements in the world including al-Qaeda and Hamas. Its goal is world domination by Islam. Working closely with the Muslim Brotherhood is the Center for Christian and Muslim Understanding at Georgetown University, and the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR). CAIR is the non-profit fund-raising organization that has been documented financing Islamic terrorism. Former Muslim, Brigitte Gabriel, states in her book, Because They Hate: A Survivor of Islamic Terror Warns America:

Of all the Islamic organizations in America, CAIR has risen to the top as the most visible, most outspoken defender of Muslims in the United States. Masquerading as a civil rights organization, CAIR has had a hidden agenda to Islamize America from the start. Its cofounder and chairman, Omar Ahmad, a Palestinian American, told a Muslim audience in Fremont, California, in 1998: “Islam isn’t in America to be equal to any other faith, but to become dominant. The Koran should be the highest authority in America, and Islam the only accepted religion on Earth.…

Despite its links to terrorism or providing support to terrorists, CAIR grew to become a major player in Islamic American politics. The organization is lobbying in Washington, D.C., and working hard in fighting the United States government under the name of civil rights and civil liberty while complaining against every security measure our government is trying to take to fight terrorism at home.

CAIR has refused CAIR has refused to come out and condemn terrorist organizations such as Hamas, Islamic Jihad, al Qaeda, al Gamaat al Islamiya, the Muslim Brotherhood, and Hezbollah by name. (pp. 137-138)

These same facts are confirmed by the daughter of a Muslim shahid (jihadist martyr for Islam), Noni Darwish, in her book, Now They Call Me Infidel: Why I Rejected the Jihad for America, Israel, and the War on Terror, (Sentinel, 2006).

CAIR’s statements against terrorism are so vague as to be meaningless. They never call out Islamic terrorism by name, and never speak ill of any Islamic terrorist organization.

CAIR is essentially an unofficial arm of the Muslim Brotherhood. These organizations are attaining increasing inroads into churches in America under the pretense of dialogue for greater understanding of Islam and Christianity. The problem is that the programs presented as “dialogue” are totally one-sided promotions of Islam and denigrations of biblical faith, designed to disarm Christians and lay a guilt trip on anyone who would think ill of Islam—even its most radical elements.

Hitting close to home was a recent “dialogue” at a Renton, Washington, church on March 30. Harambee Church, which identifies itself as “Reformed,” partnered with the Washington state chapter of CAIR to host such a dialogue in which three pastors and one minister from this area took the stage with a number of Muslims to instruct the congregation on the teachings of Islam and how they differ with what that church teaches. Attending were some 300 people—a mixture of Christians and Muslims.

(Harambee is a Swahili term that means, “Together pushing forward.” The idea is to join with diverse groups in a common cause. The stated common cause of Harambee Church is “the Glory of God, and the living, embodied proclamation of His Son through His Spirit living within the community.”)

Somehow, in this dialogue with Muslims, the glory of God and the proclamation of His Son through His Spirit, were miserably lost.

The Koran is one of the holy books:
