The Pope has baptized a prominent muslim.
...one step closer to the one world religion.
Do you really think so?
I do. I believe the antichrist and the false prophet will be from a quasi RC / Islam religion.
Are you saying that Muslims should not be baptized?
How then does a Muslim become a Christian?
Other than be accepting Christ and making a public declaration by being baptized?
A muslim becomes a Christian in the same way anybody does...by grace through faith, not baptism.
If the pope was doing the baptizing, the muslim most likely is still not saved.
How does this equal a quasi RC/Islam religion.
The article said that he was not a practicing Muslim.
That he did not say the prayers five times a day.
That he did not fast as a Muslim.
And it also said that he is married to a Catholic woman and has children - most probably also Catholic.
If Muslims all became Catholic and dropped this jihad business wouldn't everyone be better off?
Even though he was not a "practicing muslim", the article labeled him as a muslim still.
It would be nice if they would drop jihad. Unfortunately, the Q'ran will never allow for that to happen until Islam is the world religion, or everyone is a slave of a muslim. That is why I believe the AC and FP will be muslim...but still keeping the "christian" world happy as to bring a total "peace" to the world.
You might be on to something. I don't think my prophetic understanding of Scripture is that exact.
But you might be right.
***edited for spelling.
There is no compromise with Islam. The Q'ran even goes so far as to allow mingeling and acting like the 'infidels' in order to garner their trust so they can be overthrown.
We already know the RC will compromise anything at the drop of a pin...so add the two, and it is not pretty.
Also, muslims believe God's promise through Abraham was through Ishmael, so I believe that would be the normative approach to desecrating the new temple.
I might be wrong on all accounts, but it sure seems to be pointing in that direction.
I'm following you.
Muslims desecrating the new temple is a strong possibility.
Btw, I believe that you are way ahead of me in some of these eschatology matters.
I don't know if I can agree with this statement since salvation is through faith in Christ and nothing to do with who baptizes you??? :BangHead:
I was not insinuating whatsoever that baptism saves. Anyone going to the pope FOR baptism probably has no idea why they are being baptized.
While some folks here do not consider Catholics to be Christians, I do and I think we we should praise God when someone converts from Islam to Christianity.
Only if the pope had "baptised" him without his first "converting."
Yes, the inverted commas (quotation marks) are intentional.
If the pope had done this while he was still a Muslim you might have a point, but he did not.
If he converted to catholicism...he did not convert to salvation by grace through faith. The baptism was only good for getting him wet.
Any religion the states we are not saved by grace through faith is not Chrisitan.
Of course, that is not the issue at all. The pope did not baptise a practicing Muslim. He baptised a new catholic. No "one world religion' here, just the same old popery.
If you saw my earlier posts, I meant that this is what I believe will lead INTO the one world religion, not catholics baptizing muslims as being the one world religion that the AC will arise from.
now this is something new to me, and I'm serious.
why do you think there will be a quasi RC/Islamic religion ?
