The Daily Caller: “The Council on American-Islamic Relations, the nation’s largest Muslim civil rights group, instructed America this week that Muslims, Christians and Jewish people all worship the same deity.
“[F]rom an Islamic perspective, there is only one deity worshiped by Muslims, Christians and Jews,” CAIR’s national executive director Nihad Awad explains.
“‘Allah’ is merely the Arabic translation for ‘God,’” Awad observes, and “all Arabic-speaking Christians refer to ‘Allah’ in their prayers.”
“Islam’s Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon him) said: ‘Both in this world and in the Hereafter, I am the nearest of all people to Jesus, the son of Mary,’” the CAIR executive adds. “The prophets are paternal brothers; their mothers are different, but their religion is one.
Awad’s brief essay is entitled “Our Religion Is One – Muslims And Christians Worship The Same God”.
Opinion: CAIR is listed by the US government as an un-indicted co-conspirator in a scheme to provide funding to the terror groupHamas.
Nihad Awad mentions Jesus, son of Mary, without mentioning that Muslims do not believe in Jesus’ deity, or that when the Mahdi (rider on the White Horse, Rev. 6:1-3) returns to bring peace to a chaotic world he brings Isa, son of Mary, as the Mahdi’s deputy.
On October 7, 2007 George W. Bush stunned the evangelicals that helped elect him twice with the comment “Christians and Muslims worship the same God.”
The current White House occupant claims that Islam is woven into the fabric of the founding of America.
The globalist “Oneness” mantra first promoted in a 2009 book by the same name that the progressive left would like everyone to embrace in order to unite all religions under the banner of enlightenment:
“Judaism, Christianity, Buddhism, Islam: the world’s religions all seem to ask that their followers seek different paths to enlightenment. Yet beneath the seeming differences lies a pool of universal truth. Oneness collects these beliefs together in one volume, in the actual words of each religion’s scriptures. These universal principles—The Golden Rule . . . Honor Thy Father and Thy Mother . . . Heaven Is Within . . . As We Sow, We Shall Reap . . . Judge Not . . . God Is Love, and others—guide us to inner peace, and allow us to achieve spiritual richness. Oneness is a gift of love.”
The progressive idea of global religion to unite all faiths is in full view:
- Ecumenism- Catholic movement to bring all religions under authority of the Pope
- Interfaith movement – watering down the Gospel message (many pathways to salvation)
- Oneness – Finding commonality in ideology
- Inclusivity/same-sex marriage – Uniting all people under one god
And the whole platform falls apart with one verse: “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through Me.” John 14:6
