Interfaith Dialogue is nothing more than a communist-contrived influence operation that continues the Cultural Marxist attack on Western Civilization. The American hard Left has partnered with Islam in an unholy alliance we call the Red-Green Axis. Their mutual goal is the subversion of Western laws, culture, and traditions, and our nation’s ultimate destruction, in preparation for the imposition of totalitarian rule.
[Washington, DC] The Center for Security Policy, a Washington think tank comprised of former national security experts, has put out a dire warning about Christians engaging in Interfaith Dialogue.
(JD Hall – Pulpit & Pen) Written by national security experts, Bill Johnson (not of Bethel Church Redding ) and James Simpson, the report highlights the intentional use of Interfaith Dialogue by both Marxists and Islamic Extremists to weaken American resolve to protect its national sovereignty, culture and Judeo-Christian values. …
The Center for Security Policy is not a Christian organization, but one founded in 1988 by more than 30 national security experts, the chief founders of which served the Reagan Administration. These experts, who ranged from service to the National Security Administration to the Senate Intelligence Committee, created the organization to defend liberty in the face of invasive, subversive ideologies.
The 35-page white-paper by Johnson and Simpson on the danger of interfaith dialogue to American freedom and national interests is entitled Michigan Faith Communities in the Cross-Hairs.
The paper begins:
Islam’s goal in the West, as articulated in the Muslim Brotherhood’s Explanatory Memorandum, is to destroy the legal and political institutions of our society and replace them with the rule of shariah (Islamic Law). To accomplish this goal, U.S. Muslim political leaders have partnered with the Left, giving them otherwise unavailable access to the many institutions controlled by the Left.
As described further on, and as most of us know through our own experience, this control extends to many U.S. mainline churches and synagogues, which the Left has turned into little more than propaganda shops for the latest leftwing fad. In so doing, they have opened the door to Islam to first present itself to Christians and Jews in a non-threatening manner and then to begin the process of “dawah,” that is, the proselytizing or preaching of Islam. Today, even some evangelical churches have fallen for the trap. It is called “Interfaith Dialogue.”
From a national security perspective, Johnson and Simpson seem to echo many of the concerns expressed about Interfaith Dialogue (IFD) during the summer of 2017, when apologist James White engaged in an IFD with Yasir Qahdi. White claimed that Qahdi was an Islamic moderate and that the dialogue was justifiable on the grounds that the Gospel was presented. Others, like Janet Mefferd, Brannon Howse, and Steve Camp demonstrated (quite factually) that White’s claim that Qahdi was a “moderate” was spurious. Other evangelicals were uncomfortable on religious grounds, unsure of the wisdom (or lack thereof) of finding common ground and having “fellowship” (a term used in the event’s advertising) with those whom Scripture says we have no fellowship (2 Corinthians 6:14-17). The warning of the Center for Security Policy seems to echo the concerns of many following the White-Qahdi dialogue.
