A group of Christians, Jews, and Muslims have united to build a close to $50 million interfaith complex on 35 acres of land in Omaha, Nebraska. The Tri-Faith Project (TFP) will include a temple, a mosque, a church, and a community center where all three groups can host common gatherings. It is scheduled to open in the fall of 2013 and is being built on the grounds of a former country club.
TFP is geared toward establishing mutual understanding, tolerance, and friendship among the so-called “three Abrahamic faiths.” Tim Anderson from Episcopal Tri-Faith Ministries, representing “Christians”, stated “In our baptismal covenant in the Episcopal Church we make the following promises: to seek and serve Christ in all persons; to love our neighbors as ourselves; to strive for justice and peace among all people; and to respect the dignity of every human being. We will now have a unique opportunity to live out those promises [with TFP].”
The leader of Temple Israel, John Lehr, representing the Jews involved claims that “…we are now poised to congregate…in a peaceful and beautiful multi-faith neighborhood, linked together by bridges of dialogue and mutual understanding.” And Syed M. Mohiuddin, leader of the Islamic center, says “In a time when the world is engaged in building walls, this is a celebration of building bridges. As the Holy Qur’an reminds us of the common bond among us… Our God and your God is one and the same: and it is to him we submit.”
I don’t know about you, but such statements make me want to puke. There is only one Abrahamic faith and that Abrahamic faith is true Christianity, which states salvation comes by God’s grace through faith in Jesus Christ alone. The Episcopalian, Tim Anderson, has mixed false idolatrous new age doctrines into his beliefs by claiming he serves the Christ in all persons. Christ is only in those who believe and confess Jesus Christ is Lord. The idea that Christ is in everyone is universalist, new age hogwash.
This is another case of false religion dressed up to look like the truth to deceive people so they can bring everyone closer to one world religion.
16And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. 17Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you. 2 Corinthians 6.
