We must be very careful what we support these days, there is much deception and many ‘false christs'”, just as Jesus Christ predicted.  We need to anchor ourselves in His Word and make sure we are watchful of our church and its proclaimed beliefs.  Those that are not watchful, risk being led astray…

Matthew 24:4-8 (NIV) – “4Jesus answered: “Watch out that no one deceives you. 5For many will come in my name, claiming, ‘I am the Christ,[a]‘ and will deceive many. 6You will hear of wars and rumors of wars, but see to it that you are not alarmed. Such things must happen, but the end is still to come. 7Nation will rise against nation, and kingdom against kingdom. There will be famines and earthquakes in various places. 8All these are the beginning of birth pains.”

Interfaith Group Urges U.S. To Press For Middle East Agreement

(RNS) A broad coalition of U.S. Jewish, Christian and Muslim leaders has backed the Obama administration’s efforts to broker peace between Israel and Palestinians.

Members of the National Interreligious Leadership Initiative for Peace in the Middle East met Wednesday (Sept. 29) with National Security Advisor Gen. James Jones and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton. The coalition called for “active, fair and firm U.S. leadership for Arab-Israeli-Palestinian peace.”

“We believe that concerted, sustained U.S. leadership for peace is essential,” the coalition said. “And we know that time is not on the side of peace, that delay is not an option.”

The group has expressed faith in a two-state solution since forming in 2003. Its latest statement was signed by 15 Christian leaders representing Catholic, Eastern Orthodox, evangelical and mainline Protestant denominations; six rabbis and a professor from Judaism’s Reform and Reconstructionist movements; and six Muslims representing the Islamic Society of North America and other groups.

“One of the biggest obstacles to peace in the Middle East is cynicism,” said Bishop Howard Hubbard, chairman of the U.S. Conference of Catholic Bishops’ Committee on International Justice and Peace.

“As people of faith, we must remember that with God all things are possible. The human spirit can overcome even the longest and most violent of conflicts.”

More interfaith events in the news.  These have really been picking up steam.

They are setting the stage and preparing the way for one world religion, based on tolerance and acceptance of all.

It will frame salvation as accessible via multiple paths with Jesus Christ as a way, instead of the Truth.

That Jesus Christ is The Way, The Truth, and The life.  Only through Him can we receive salvation.

Those that believe this though will be painted as extremists and intolerant, in some cases it is already happening…

John 14:6 (NIV) – “Jesus answered, “I am the way and the truth and the life. No one comes to the Father except through me.”
