The idea of combining Abrahamic religions for the sake of unity is a dangerous practice because it both advances the idea that lies are good for societies across the world and that the former is de facto possible without breaking the main tenets of each religion.
Let me explain. Without the crucifixion of Jesus and His resurrection, Christianity is in vain. It’s a no religion! We learn the former Christian thought in the Bible. Without Jesus’ resurrection, Christianity is reduced to being a no religion, nothingness. The apostle Paul says in his writings in Corinthians, “And if Christ has not been raised… your faith is in vain… Your faith is futile and you are still in your sins (1 Corinthians 15:14, 17, 19).
In the Qur’an, An-Nisa 4:157, it is written a that Jesus wasn’t crucified, a doctrinal thought that closely resembles the teachings presented to non-messianic Jews in the Babylonian Talmud. Here is how An-Nisa 4:157 reads in English, “and for their saying, “We have certainly killed the Masia Isa the son of Maryam, the Messenger of Allah”, while in fact they did neither kill him, nor crucify him, but they were deluded by resemblance. Those who disputed in this matter are certainly in doubt about it. They have no knowledge of it, but they follow whims. It is absolutely certain that they did not kill him,”
Now, let’s stop here and reason through these verses disparities and have common sense. How can Islam and Christianity be unified as one religion when Islamic scripture literally denies that crucifixion and the resurrection of Jesus Christ? The cornerstone of the Christian faith? It can’t be done! It’s like trying to unify Judaism with Christianity and denying that Moses had a divine encounter with God to get the Israelites’s 10 commandments.
The God of Islam doesn’t have a son. The God of Christianity does. In Islam, God cannot have a human form. In Christianity, the former is not only possible but a doctrine of the faith. In Islam, human beings are essentially good people. In Christianity, human beings are sinners and can only get rid of sin through the repenting of sins by God’s grace.
In Islam, I honestly don’t know how salvation is attained. In Christianity salvation is attained by the faith that Jesus Christ died for the sins of the world when He was crucified in the 32nd day of Nissan and resurrected three days later through grace.
I then ask. How can anyone attempt to teach the faith doctrines of Chrislam? It’s a rhetorical question! Chrislam’s doctrines can’t be taught because there isn’t one core agreeable doctrine applicable to both Islam and Christianity as far as the nature of God, salvation and the crucifixion of the savior are concerned.
As Pastor Spencer Smith would said, “The only way ecumenicism is possible is by trashing doctrine and celebrating experiences.” Not my cup of tea and/or the tea that Bible believing Christians drink. Some of us believe that Chrislam is a “kind” way, perhaps an attempt to destroy Christianity in its core from within by a sinister group of individuals.
On the same accord, will followers of Islam stop praying five times a day and believing that Christ died for their sins in this new and upcoming Chrislam religion? Give me a break. Both you and I know that it isn’t going a happen. This is my recommendation to you: Stick with Christianity, read your Bible frequently and look for a Bible believing church near you so that by faith in the lamb and repentance of sins,l through God’s grace you inherit eternal life.
Say no to Chrislam.
