Here’s an update from Fox News about the story that I linked to yesterday from Yahoo News concerning Duke University’s decision to promote the Muslim faith by allowing a prayer to be openly amplified and broadcast on the college campus. It’s an interesting read. Here’s a quick quote from the article that stuck out to me:
“The idea of a historically Methodist university nearly turning its Christian cathedral to a mosque may very well be a first in the United States.“
This quote, in reference to the action that was being sought, just reinforces the notion of delusion that I referenced in connection to the American culture and how complete the delusion is in the minds of many individuals and organizations. The Methodist denomination, amongst several others, seems to be, at the very least, a denomination that is riddled with such delusion due to the fact that 5 to 10 years ago the largest Methodist congregation in my hometown held a “universal” worship service which recognized a plurality of religions and false gods by lighting candles for them! I still have the circular that was issued to promote and celebrate the occasion. If one thinks about it, this situation sure seems to make a whole lot people in the Methodist church sound more like the philosophers of Athens than a “Christian” church.
When an individual is intentionally blind, deaf, dumb and numb to what the gospel of Christ is calling humanity to in connection to the devotion and worship of the one true God then how can anything else but delusion take place?
“Truly, these times of ignorance God overlooked, but now commands all men everywhere to repent, because He has appointed a day on which He will judge the world in righteousness by the Man whom He has ordained. He has given assurance of this to all by raising Him from the dead.”” (Acts 17:30-31)
