This warms my heart.

It is not good for Christians to legitamize other faiths like this. This isn't like running a bake sale, this is saying one faith is as good as the other.
All my regular blog sites are right with you on this, Ken, but I feel strongly that we are not to work with muslims on faith issues.
Not to mention the bible clearly bans symbols such as crosses, so I don't see erecting an idol as good news, even if the idol is universally recognized as christian. I think we should strive to obey God's word. I don't think we should rationalize this as a good thing.
Thanks Ken this is welcome news.
Another great post Bro. Curtis
Amen! You know the end is getting near by the day. Come Lord Jesus!

Why would muslims want to put up a cross the symbol of what they consider a false religion, the adherents of they believe should killed if they do not convert to islam? I do not see it as a good that if christians are in agreement in anyway, working together in anyway with a false religion, giving the appearances of a unity.
Beacuse only a tiny percentage of Muslims believe such, just like only a tiny percentage of Christians believe in committing violence toward those with whom they disagree.
I see it as a kindly gesture on the part of some friendly locals. Obviously Christians and Muslims don't believe the same thing as to who Christ is, but we wouldn't turn down a group of Jews who wanted to help would we?
I can honestly say I would not help. I would not have any part in erecting a symbol to my own God, never mind anyone else's.
Long before I was saved, I installed a sound system in a Jewish Temple, and I'm not sure how I would handle the same situation, now. I do see a difference, I was getting paid to perform a servive, not volunteering to build a statue. But then again, if I was to do it again, I would be taking money to facilitate the worship of a false god, and that puts me right up there with Balaam.
It's hard to face the world without prayer, eh ?
Well, at least in this case, they are showing that they want an end to the violence and are willing to be good neighbors. It's all we can ask of them and the rest is in God's hands.
wolves in sheeps clothing :tear: we should not join with these people
This appears a wonderful witnessing opportunity for Christians eh?
Well alrighty then.
Gweneth is right. This wold constitute being unequally yoked. What business does light have to do with darkness?
So how are Christians to spread the gospel if they have no interaction with non-Christians?
Let's see - Iraqi Muslims could be
(a)shooting their Christian neighbors and burning their churches or
(b)helping them rebuild
Gee, Which is better??
I don't believe I ever said anything about spreading the Gospel. It's clear that is not the intention by erecting the cross together.
(c) trying to gain the trust of the infidels.
Do you have any clue what is contained in the Q'ran? Do you really believe they are trying to garner peace?
