Vice-President Inger Lise Hansen in the Christian Peoples Party of Norway wants to change the party to attract more Muslim voters.
The festival of Easter defines true Christianity, and set visual borders towards all other faiths. The Gospel explains that Jesus has died on the cross in my place, and was raised from the dead for my justification.
Jesus died to pay the price for my sins, and offered Him self as the perfect atonement for my sins. Jesus became the passover Lamb of God. His blood have been shared as the only atoning sacrifice that can save a soul from everlasting fire in Hell.
There is nothing like this message in any other religion. Islam as an example, takes this Biblical truth head on, and rejects that God has a divine Son, God King Messiah.
Every religion has two sides. One is our relation to death and eternity. The other is views on how to best organize our life on Earth, as members of society, cultures and communities. The teaching of Jesus explains that what we do on Earth will have consequences for eternity. Also in regards to this issue, Christianity and Islam are oceans apart.
The Vice President of the Christian Peoples Party in Norway wants to abolish their leaders membership oath of faithfulness to Jesus, to get more Muslims to vote for the party. With this message she has explained her ideology: «There are many things Muslims and Christians agree up on».
This is a deception. There is hardly anything Islam and Biblical Christianity agree up on, besides a ban on gay marriage and promotion of the family as the basic cell for civilized society. But even inside the «family politics» of Islam, there is enough stuff to contradict both Humanism and Christianity. Like view of women, circumcision of girls, forced child marriages, and polygamy.
Islamic sharia laws and political Christianity has also nothing in common. The values that we build our societies on are radical opposites. If the Christian Peoples party of Norway opens up for Islam, the party will change its nature. It will no longer be a Christian alternative.
Frankly, today there is no law that stops Muslims, Hindus and even Atheists from voting for a Christian party. People of all faiths are free to use their ticket to support politicians who wants fundamental Christian values to be safeguarded in our society.
