The Islamic Society of North America (ISNA) has been holding a conference in Detroit this weekend with some prominent people on their program. ISNA is an affiliate of the U.S. branch of the Muslim Brotherhood, the Islamist pro-sharia organization that has given the world Hamas, Hezbollah, al-Qaeda, and other terrorist organizations. In a brazen display of al-taqiyya (the Islamic practice of putting on a false display of agreeing with the “infidels” when they outnumber you), the conference includes a Boy Scout troop leading the pledge of allegiance, the singing of the national anthem, Michigan’s governor, the presiding bishop of the Evangelical Lutheran Church of America (ELCA), and former president Jimmy Carter (wisdom and discernment were never his strong suit).
In her comments to the crowd of 300, ELCA’s bishop, Elizabeth Eaton, made it seem as if Christianity and Islam are on the same spiritual level and similar in their goals. “I realized, looking at some of the lectures that you have scheduled, that if we were just to exchange ‘church’ for ‘mosque’ I would see I was in the same place with typical Lutherans. …We could say the same thing,” she stated.
Michigan Governor Rick Snyder praised them for scheduling programs that “are well-selected and meaningful to all of us … about healthy culture and effective engagement, both taking account of the good work the Muslim community is doing in bringing Detroit back.” Yeah…with the ultimate goal of bringing Detroit into sharia.
ISNA is an unindicted co-conspirator with the Muslim Brotherhood in funneling money to support terrorism around the globe. But maybe I shouldn’t say anything bad about Islam since so many are in denial of its true intentions or in fear that saying anything bad about it makes them want to blow you up or many are just turned off whenever the truth is spoken about it. Of course, none of that has stopped me before.
When “Christian” leaders like Ms. Eaton and President Carter associate themselves with such organizations, what does that say about their relationship with the Lord? Are they spiritually blind? Are they uninformed about what the Bible says and/or current events? Or are they in cahoots with them for the sake of the coming one world religion and global governance?
This is another example of Peter’s prophetic warnings–“But there were false prophets also among the people, even as there shall be false teachers among you, who privily shall bring in damnable heresies, even denying the Lord that bought them, and bring upon themselves swift destruction. And many shall follow their pernicious ways; by reason of whom the way of truth shall be evil spoken of,” (2 Peter 2:1). However, devoting yourself to what pleases the Lord will ensure “that the God of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of glory, may give unto you the spirit of wisdom and revelation in the knowledge of him: The eyes of your understanding being enlightened…” (Eph. 1:17), to avoid being duped by such people.
