Christian Pastor In The Bible Belt Admits To Worshiping Allah

"A former church has been taken over and converted to a mosque in a rural North Carolina county, and a group of Christian pastors took part in the conversion ceremony in an effort to “show mutual respect” for their Muslim neighbors.

Crosses have been removed from the former church’s facade and steeple, and mosque leader Ali Muhammad turned them over to the group of pastors.

“What they were attempting to do is honor our tradition and so they wanted to turn the crosses over to us,” said the Rev. Jim Melnyk, pastor of St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Smithfield, a small town in Johnston County about 45 minutes south of Raleigh. “They were reaching out to us, and we were reaching out to them.”

Melnyk said he was joined by pastors from the United Methodist Church, United Church of Christ and three different Baptist congregations at Saturday’s ceremony, which marked the official conversion of a former Pentecostal church into a mosque. One lay person from the local Presbyterian Church was also present for the “celebration.”

Melnyk told WND the mosque had reached out to the local churches through an interfaith group in Raleigh and was hoping to strike a welcoming and respectful tone for the two faiths.

Melnyk said Christianity and Islam “share common origins and scriptures” and that he felt it was the right thing to do to participate in the mosque opening as a show of respect for Islam, a fellow monotheistic faith.

“Christians, Jews and Muslims are all people of the book, and we all claim what the Hebrew Scriptures call the Abrahamic faith,” Melnyk told WND. “We call it the Old Testament, and Muslims also claim the Bible.”

BWV Comment

Here is strong evidence we are now officially in the great end-time apostasy that will produce the Man of Sin - the biblical Antichrist. The New Testament Greek word for apostasy is anomia (See 2 Thessalonians 2:3 - KJV; the newer versions refer to it as lawlessness; the NIV refers to it as the rebellion and that is close to the truth for it means a departure from once accepted biblical truth).  

For established religion to give their church facility to Muslims so they can convert it to a Mosque and then join in a celebration with the Mosque leader who by the way returned the crosses to the Episcopal so-called church is nothing less than the ecumenical movement to join all religions to the New World Religious Order the Book of Revelation calls the Great Babylonian Harlot - See Revelation 17.  

To say Christians, Jews and Muslims are all people of the book is a blatant lie. The Quran is book of demonic mysticism that plagiarized portions of both the Old and New Testaments (Muhammad, a false prophet, twisted the Scriptures of the Bible to form a new religion  - Islam and he chose as his god, Allah, a fictitious moon god, which was considered by Eastern religions the strongest of the gods).  

If you want to know the truth of what Abraham believed, read Romans 4 - the whole chapter and you will understand he knew and worshiped only one God - the pre-incarnate Jesus Christ and he did not worship the Torah or the law for his righteousness before God for there was no law in his day. His righteousness came by faith in the Word of God to send the deliver (Messiah Jesus) to pay the price for his, Abraham's sin. Muslims reject the blood sacrifice of Jesus upon the cross and in so doing condemn themselves to the Great White Throne Judgment and to hell and the eternal lake of fire upon their death.  

True Christians do not accept the Quran as the authentic Word of God for it is not nor do they worship Allah.  The Jews reject the New Testament so their Scriptures are without the greater revelation of Holy Writ. The Jews worship God as the book of Hebrews says, but without knowledge. Their rejection of Jesus makes their religion bogus and false Jews.

Here is what the Apostle John said about the final days of apostasy:

I John 2:18-23 NIV

18 Dear children, this is the last hour; and as you have heard that the antichrist is coming, even now many antichrists have come. This is how we know it is the last hour. 19 They went out from us, but they did not really belong to us. For if they had belonged to us, they would have remained with us; but their going showed that none of them belonged to us. (John is talking about the end-time apostasy here - emphasis mine). 

20 But you have an anointing from the Holy One, and all of you know the truth. 21 I do not write to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no lie comes from the truth. 22 Who is the liar? It is whoever denies that Jesus is the Christ. Such a person is the antichrist—denying the Father and the Son. 23 No one who denies the Son has the Father; whoever acknowledges the Son has the Father also.

While the Jewish Rabbi's claim they worship the Father God and know Him, John calls them liars because to know the Father you have to accept the Son and they reject Him. Their religion is no better than Islam. A Jew that rejects the Lord Jesus Christ and His sacrifice for sin upon the cross, will die and go to Hell the same as an unbelieving Gentiles.  

These off-shoot religions from Catholicism - Episcopalians, Methodists, and the so-called non-Protestants - the Baptists, Church of Christ and Pentecostals reveal their true colors and character - they are part of the Satanic World religious movement that will become the Harlot of Revelation 17.  

I don't worship Allah or Judaism and want nothing to do with either for both are what Paul said are wicked deeds of darkness. 

The United States of America is foolishly and blindly rejecting the Christian faith and Jesus Christ for Islam and the Quran - Sharia law.  It will destroy this nation if not stopped. The Lord God will allow America to go this pathway if that is what it prefers and to suffer the consequences.  There is a passage in Proverbs that addresses this:

Proverbs 1:22-33 NIV

22 “How long will you who are simple love your simple ways?
    How long will mockers delight in mockery
    and fools hate knowledge?
23 Repent at my rebuke!
    Then I will pour out my thoughts to you,
    I will make known to you my teachings.
24 But since you refuse to listen when I call
    and no one pays attention when I stretch out my hand,
25 since you disregard all my advice
    and do not accept my rebuke,
26 I in turn will laugh when disaster strikes you;
    I will mock when calamity overtakes you—
27 when calamity overtakes you like a storm,
    when disaster sweeps over you like a whirlwind,
    when distress and trouble overwhelm you.
28 “Then they will call to me but I will not answer;
    they will look for me but will not find me,
29 since they hated knowledge
    and did not choose to fear the Lord.
30 Since they would not accept my advice
    and spurned my rebuke,
31 they will eat the fruit of their ways
    and be filled with the fruit of their schemes.
32 For the waywardness of the simple will kill them,
    and the complacency of fools will destroy them;
33 but whoever listens to me will live in safety
    and be at ease, without fear of harm.”
