Church Offers Auditorium as Prayer Space for the Muslim Community
Will the church be asked ( now or later) to remove any symbols of Christianity?
They may have already done so. Certainly wouldn't be the first 'christian' church to discard symbols of the faith in order to appear 'inclusive'. This church removed it's cross and even took 'Christ' out of their church name:
“Our community has been a really open-minded community for some years now,” he said. “We’ve had a number of Muslim people, Jewish people, Buddhists, atheists. ... We’re catching up (to) ourselves.”
The pastor said that 'the cross has become a negative symbol to a lot of people.' I heard an UCC clergy person refer to the cross as 'divine child abuse'.
Earlier this week, John Dominic Crossan, a radical theologian famous for his denials of biblical truth and the historic Christian faith, spoke at an Episcopal church in Northern Virginia with the approval of Episcopal Bishop Johnston. Crossnan is a well known speaker from 'The Jesus Seminar' fame and who denies the bodily resurrection of Jesus and says that Jesus’ body was eaten by dogs, and he is permitted to speak unchallenged by clergy in his diocese?
“If Christ has not been raised, your faith is futile and you are still in your sins.” (1 Corinthians 15:17)
