Southern Baptists like Ed Stetzer have replaced Christian truth with “ecumenical love” for Muslims and Buddhist.
Hundreds of Christians, Muslims, Jews, Hindus, Buddhists and atheists have convened at NorthWood Church in Keller in Texas in an effort to try to understand one another.
Ed Stetzer, president of LifeWay Research – the research arm of the Southern Baptist Convention – and a speaker at the Global Faith Forum, says admitting “that we are multifaith is only the beginning.”
Evangelicals, he stressed, need to be willing to learn to live together with those whose beliefs are different.
“Because we believe in the need to live together on this earth, we recognize that this involves allowing adherents of other faiths to live out their convictions without being in constant conflict,” he stated on his blog.
“The world has seen too much pain and suffering as the result of followers of one faith using political or military means to impose their views on the followers of another.”
Speakers at the Global Faith Forum include HRH Prince Turki Al Faisal, former Saudi Arabia ambassador to the United States; His Excellency Le Cong Phung, Vietnam ambassador to the United States; Eboo Patel of Interfaith Youth Core; John Esposito of Georgetown University; and Mark Galli of Christianity Today, among others.

This is a false ecumenical message of “love”:
How do we love out enemies?
If I understand the ecumenical movement correctly, the best way to love a Muslim is to become a Muslim. Than He will truly love you.
There can be no true love, outside of the truth. If a Muslim is on his way to Hell, it will be the opposite of love not tell Him the truth.
Christians who do not understand this, will never be able to love their enemies, the way Jesus would love them. Jesus was tough with people who did not tell the truth. This was love from A to Z.
You belong to your father, the devil, and you want to carry out your father’s desires. He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies, he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies.
