Islam and the Church

The Barnabas Fund recently published an Editorial: 'Can the Church survive the Islamist onslaught?' The article says that in 2017 Christians can expect to face five major challenges to their freedom of religion:
  • Widespread religious cleansing, 
  • The formal spread of sharia enforcement,
  • The spread of violence to enforce sharia, 
  • Christian refugees unseen, ignored and targeted by Islamists, and 
  • The West’s loss of its own Judaeo-Christian values.
Christianity is experiencing a major problem. As Christianity is being wiped out in many countries abroad, religious leaders in Great Britain continue to cosy up to Muslims in the mistaken belief that they can encourage better relations between Christianity and Islam even though Islam completely rejects basic Christian beliefs.

As explained for the Cranmer Blog by the Rev’d Dr Gavin Ashenden, Chaplain to the Queen, the latest Anglican gaff took place during the Eucharist in Glasgow's Scottish Episcopal Cathedral Church of St Mary the Virgin when a reading from the Quran was included in the liturgy. Dr Ashden has been interviewed on Anglican Unscripted (AU) where he gives a clear explanation of the problems facing Christianity today, not only from Islam but from the liberal Left. 

This is not about hating Muslims as explained here. It is about recognising that Christians are being led astray while Muslims seeking salvation are being denied the truth

The AU video should be compulsory viewing for clerics, especially trendy liberals.

  1. Have seen the video on Twitter .What an achievement for Islam : a Muslim girl singing or chanting in a Euchariatic celebration !
    I understand the text denies that God had a Son.
    I repeat chanted during a Eucharist !
    So to me it follows that the Provost sanctioned denial of the Incarnation.
    Someone in Glasgow Cathedral should be denied their dog collar.
    The Islamic world must be rubbing their hands with glee, and rightly concluding that Christians do not understand and believe their religion.
