Warren hasn’t said this recently since he hasn’t preached in 4 months since his son committed suicide, but something like this is worth repeating…..Allah actually originates from ah-elah (sp) other wise known as the moon god.
Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, California is the eighth largest church in the United States with an average attendance of 20,000 or more. Rick Warren is the founder and senior pastor of this mega church. He is also known for his popular book and program of church growth known as The Purpose Driven Church.
He has built his temple of thousands on a platform of liberal theology. His preaching is more emotionally based than spiritually based which is how, according to Rick Warren, you build a big church. The bottom line of his philosophy is that it is more important to build a big church than teach sound biblical theology.
In his typical liberal fashion, Pastor Rick Warren has joined a movement known as King’s Way. The movement’s goal is to bring Christians and Muslims together without either group trying to proselytize or convert the other.
As part of this effort, Warren announced that he wants to create a set of principles that both evangelical Christians and Muslims could agree to in the effort to bring churches and mosques closer together. One of those principles is that we both worship the same God. In other words, God and Allah are one in the same deity.
Sorry Pastor Rick Warren but you couldn’t be more wrong. If you really believe this, it demonstrates just how far from the Bible you have strayed.
Yes, I know that Muslims trace their history back to the Ishmael, the son of Abraham and Jews and Christians trace their history back to Isaac, also the son of Abraham. Warren used this common history as the basis of making his statement on God and Allah being one and the same.
