Arab Christians praised by Muslim Prince in Jordan

Prince Hassan of Jordan delivered a lecture on Sunday at the Orthodox Club to an audience of Christian and Muslim leaders entitled “Christianity and Oriental Arab Identity.”

During the lecture he declared that although a minority in terms of numbers, Arab Christians have made huge contributions to Arab culture.

Prince Hassan noted that Arab Christians are credited for preserving the Arabic language and identity, as Christianity was an important religion in the Arab world since the time before Islam. “The challenge facing Arabs, Christians and Muslims alike, is finding a workable medium in joint and separate interactions with the secular world,” he said. “The challenge lies in finding common moral and ethical grounds in humankind’s “natural law” of right and wrong. One wonders whether separating religion and state leads to a faithless state.”

Noting that no religion calls for or justifies murder, he stressed that religion emanates from a belief in salvation and mercy, not hatred and violence.

“There is no way to resolve all intellectual, political, religious and social issues but through dialogue,” he said.

My comment; Despite his royal title, Prince Hassan is just a typical politician and he’s doing his job, trying to keep a balance among Jordan’s many ethnic groups and keeping Jordan from the massive civil strife that have plagued other multicultural societies in the region like Lebanon and Iraq.

What he doesn’t realize is that by working for “interfaith dialogue” to “keep the peace” he is playing right into the hands of the One World Religion which says that there is no meaningful distinction between religions which “all worship the same god.”

The Christian leaders who attended this lecture, like their counterparts in other Muslim dominated countries, are lying to themselves and their own congregations when they say that they will find safety in forging a common destiny with Muslim’s and pagans instead of staying true to their own Scriptures which include Jesus’ unequivocal statement from John 14: 16;

“I am the way, and the truth, and the life; no one comes to the Father but through Me.”

  1. After reading that artical and seeing those woman caring that cross, i could not help but think of what Richard Wurmbrand has said “Jesus not only died for the sins of the world, HE said come up here and die with me”. Mr. Wurmbrand and his wife Sabina are with The LORD in Heaven because of their Testimony, they spent 14 years being persecuted for their Faith in The Risen LORD and were set free. To be with those that were willing to die for The Truth is where i long to be…to see my Saviour face to face. Amen

    1. PutYhwh1st,

      You are absolutely one great big ball of confusion to me. You post and never reply also.

      I thought you were a believer in Jesus.

      Of course Christ died on the cross. You are doubting that now? The Word of God is always TRUE!

      1 Corinthians 15:3,4 “For I delivered unto you first of all that which I also received, how that CHRIST DIED FOR OUR SINS according to the scriptures; And that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the scriptures”

      Matthew 27:27-56 tells of Christ dying on the cross for our sins.
