Attempts to Blend Christianity with Other Religions

Share

Can someone be a witch and a Christian?  What about a Muslim and a Christian?  Do you think the idea is preposterous?  Think again.  Believe it or not, there are people who call themselves Christian witches.  And they’re not kidding around.

Maria Kneas fills us in on the details.  She writes:

Numerous attempts have been made to blend Christianity with other religions on a world-wide scale. You can read about them in Carl Teichrib’s article “Unveiling the Global Interfaith Agenda.”

There are also other attempts to merge Christianity with different religions. For example, Chrislam tries to combine Christianity with Islam. There are people who call themselves Christian witches (i.e., combining Christianity with Wicca). There are attempts to mix Christianity with Hinduism, and with Buddhism, and with Shamanism. (A shaman is a Native American medicine man.) Some people claim to be Christian witch doctors or Christian sorcerers. You can even buy a book about Christian Voodoo.

Nominal Christians are people who are Christians in name only. They call themselves Christians, but they really aren’t. They don’t have a relationship with Jesus Christ, they ignore or deny foundational Christian doctrines, and they don’t try to live the way God has instructed us as described in the Bible. Such people can fit in with other religions. However, born-again Christians aren’t able to do that because they have God’s Spirit living inside them Who convicts them of sin and enables them to trust and obey the Lord. And because God is living inside them, He gives them the grace and strength to abide in Him. Simply put, biblical Christianity cannot mix with other religions.

To compare it to something physical in everyday life, you cannot mix oil and water. Because of their very nature, they just don’t mix. You can put them in a glass jar and shake them until they seem to be blended, but then they will separate and the oil will rise to the top of the jar.

To carry that analogy further, if you add an emulsifier, then they can mix. It goes against their nature, but the emulsifier bridges that gap. In real life, Christians who are under severe pressure (such as the threat of prison or torture or death) may go against their nature and try to blend in with whatever is politically correct. That happened in Nazi Germany. I’ve seen pictures of church altars with swastikas on them. However, Jesus warned us not to make such compromises:

Whosoever therefore shall confess me before men, him will I confess also before my Father which is in heaven. But whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I also deny before my Father which is in heaven. (Matthew 10:32-33)

    Can we say: CHRISLAM? The mega religion at the end of history will be comprised​ of Churchianity, Rome, Islam, New Age, Hinduism, Taoism, and everything in between! They will all worship The Beast and The False Prophet! It is a mystery religion known as Mystery Babylon! As Daniel said, at the close of history knowledge will increase, and hidden things will be revealed! We are seeing the Great Apostasy unfolding, the woman that rides The Beast! We are seeing apostate christianity meld with the rest of the world’s demon driven religious system!

    A time is coming when if someone kills you, they think they’re doing God a favor! Can’t you see the hate when someone dares to speak against a favored wolf? When someone dares to point to a so-called “anointed one” for teaching lies, the howls and screams reach unto heaven! The “don’t judge” crowd goes berserk!

    John 16:1-3

    “1I have told you these things so that you will not fall away. 2They will put you out of the synagogues. In fact, a time is coming when anyone who kills you will think he is offering a service to God. 3They will do these things because they have not known the Father or Me”…

      Type in the word “Krystallah”. I’ll wait. This sort of thing is already happening.

      Unlike alot of Christians, I do think there are compatible faiths with Christianity, as long as one understands that these are “backup dancers.” That we can respect some of the values or ideas without, you know, completely becoming an atheist Buddhist. In particular, I have no problem with some syncretism.

      But Christianity is not and never should be merged with Islam, nor New Age paganism, nor Hinduism, nor Catholicism. Taoism is fine. Buddhism is fine. Shintoism is fine.
      Hinduism advocates wife burning and a racist caste system. Islam advocates violence, oppression of women, and teaches explicitly that Christ did not die on the cross, and has all the markings of a Satanic cult.

      “Churchianity” is a problem all by itself. So is Rome. Without ever mixing, either of these two are false versions of the faith of God and Christ. Judaism is good, but there is very much a false synagogue where the rabbis try to brainwash people into rejecting Christ as the Messiah.

      Syncretism is a sin, yes. But all of us are sinners in the eyes of God. Taoism reminds us that none of us are perfect, all have light and dark (“all have fallen short”). Shintoism reminds us of the all-pervasive nature of spirit (as long as we understand this as the Holy Spirit). Buddhism reminds us of the importance of prayer and meditation and that we should live a life of abstinence, try to avoid harming animals, etc. I don’t even have a problem with reincarnation (I think that if we wanted a picture of Hell from a loving God, it wouldn’t be fire so much as to keep living your mistakes). When we understand these ideals are okay FROM A CHRISTIAN PERSPECTIVE, this is one thing. When we assume these things from their own perspective, Christianity gets swallowed up in other ideas. In the end, it isn’t that syncreticism is bad, as much as the nothing of “itching ears” and trying to invent a version of Christianity that doesn’t tell you that you’re a sinner, or a version that says it’s okay to be a globalist.

    If you can’t see what is happening today and the speed in which all these things are converging, you are blind. From the convergence of the world’s economic structure, the demise of Christianity, replaced by Churchianity, the militant rise of homosexuality, the topsy turvy madness gripping society, where evil is good and good is evil! The realignment of nations to confirm the coming war betweens the kings of the East, South and North! Israel in her place, sorrounded by enemies wanting to destroy her! You don’t need a degree in eschatology to understand the times!!!!! Folks, we are here!

      The worst evil out there is Ba’hai though.

      Ba’hai came about as attempt to pretend to be all things for all people. They claim to be the Second Coming. The claim to be the Miroku for Buddhists. They claim they will usher in a world of peace. But we already see the effects. They set up interfaith religious forums, then ban people who actually claim you should (a) not be a globalist, (b) claim to stand firm to a specific religious ideal, or (c) condemn or expose Ba’hai as fraud.

      Islam pretends to be peaceful too… when it is the minority. At 5%, it gets bold. What happens when Ba’hai reaches that amount?

      Aside from New Age syncretism like Ba’hai, there is a number of false cults that never explicitly call themselves religion. Epicureanism and hedonism, the idea that life is meaningless so we should live it up while we can. Work cult(ure) and military cult(ure). The youth and fitness Peloton nonsense. I don’t have a problem with LGBT people, but I do have a problem with the emphasis on sterilizing young men and women (sex change is castration meant to look pretty),

      Safetyism, as we saw in the COVID guidelines (which looked suspiciously like creeping hijab). In particular, the perversion of the peace as “unsafe”, the idea that communion or singing is wrong. Many Christians have been fooled by this.

      And lastly globalism, which can be summed up as, “we need to avoid being intolerant, so we need to welcome all these other people and other faiths.” Only, when other people bash Christianity, Judaism, and traditional values, “they’re entitled to their opinion, they just have a different culture than us.” Oh really, so when they torture and kill an animal in the streets, just a different culture. When they behead someone for being homosexual, just a different culture.
