At a time when Christians in the Middle East are being tortured, beheaded, and crucified rather than denying Jesus, Christians in Europe are renouncing the Great Commission and removing the Cross (literally) to make peace with Muslims.
Last month, in Sweden, the Bishop of Stockholm “proposed a church in her diocese remove all signs of the Cross and put down markings showing the direction to Mecca for the benefit of Muslim worshippers.”
As reported on Breitbart.com, “Calling Muslim guests to the church ‘angels’, the Bishop later took to her official blog to explain that removing Christian symbols from the church and preparing the building for Muslim prayer doesn’t make a priest any less a defender of the faith. Rather, to do any less would make one ‘stingy towards people of other faiths’.”
With good reason Pamela Geller exclaimed, “Sweden has surrendered without so much as firing a shot. They’ve lost it. Sweden is sacrificing its own heritage to accommodate immigrants who will not be as accommodating to native non-Muslim Swedes. The bishop is paving the way for the Islamization of Sweden.”
But this was not an isolated incident.
An “evangelical priest has offered his parish church up to become migrant housing, but will be stripping out most of the fittings to ensure their comfort—including all symbols of Christianity.” (Note that in Germany, “evangelical” simply means “Lutheran,” referring to the official state church.)
Obviously, this church had already removed real Christianity from its soul, as noted on the church website, “Refugees welcome… we are all citizens with the saints and members of the household of God.”
So, Muslims chanting Allahu Akbar and militantly denying that Jesus is the Son of God, belong to the same spiritual family as Christians proclaiming Jesus as Lord and celebrating His death and resurrection.
