From the Apprising Ministries website:

Quote of the Day: “Before we “shake your hand” in responding to your letter, we ask forgiveness of the All-Merciful One and of the Muslim community around the world.” – Rick Warren in a speech to Muslims. This weekend, the Memorial Drive Presbyterian Church in Houston along with Christian communities in Atlanta, Seattle, and Detroit will initiate a series of sermons that have been designed to produce an ecumenical reconciliation between Christianity and Islam. In addition to the sermons, the Sunday school lessons will center on the inspired teachings of the Prophet Mohammad. Qurans will be placed in the pews next to the Bibles.

oh dear … instead of rescuing people from spiritual darkness, are we to follow Rick Warren in promoting Islamic Religion and teaching? Are Christianity and Islam ‘sister’ faiths or are they mutually exclusive? Is only one of them correct and the other completely wrong?

If Christianity is the only true faith, what does that say about Rick Warren’s ecumenicism?
