WEB Notes: This reminds me of a conversation I had a year back. I was talking to a Muslim and another Christian and they were carrying on how we all serve the same god and they thought interfaith get-togethers were a great idea…
I about flipped my lid.
I explained we do not serve the same god, nor do our ideals and beliefs mesh together.
I explained one who believes in the Lord Jesus Christ does not attend another religions ceremonies and call it worshipping our Heavenly Father. It does not work that way.
Well, there was no convincing them. It is a theme these days, let’s just all hold hands and sing kumbaya.
Saudi Crown Prince Mohammed Bin Salman met a group of religious leaders in New York, including two rabbis, a rare interfaith gesture for the de facto ruler of the conservative Islamic kingdom that allows negligible religious freedoms.
The 32-year-old heir to the throne, currently on a three-week tour of the U.S., met two Roman Catholic and three Jewish figures on Wednesday, the Saudi embassy in Washington said in a statement. Saudi Arabia enforces an austere interpretation of Sunni Islam, but Prince Mohammed has said he wants to ease the country toward “moderate Islam, open to the world and all religions.”
