    Eva Brunne is the world's first openly lesbian bishop. She was promoted to her position by the Church of Sweden in 2009. Obviously, this means the Church of Sweden is apostate and appears to be a politically correct, social club that is stripped of biblical truth. Nevertheless, in Sweden, there is a church is located on the waterfront in Stockholm1. Being a international waterfront location sometimes Muslims enter the port. So, Eva's misguided attempt to accomodate the Muslims is to remove Christian crosses and establish a prayer space for Muslims - in the Church located in Stockholm. She said that airports and hospitals have accommodations for Muslims, so it's only natural to have the same thing in their waterfront church.

    Sounds nice doesn't it. But, maybe she doesn't know what it means to be a Christian. But of course not given her outright rebellious sin of lesbianism.

    Are you Swedish? If not, why worry about what goes on there so much?

    While I am generally not OK with churches being turned into mosques and Christian symbols removed... ultimately, it is just a building and the people inside are what makes a building sacred.

    I was sort of upset that for a while our church was renting out our building to non-denom evangelicals. Mostly because I am wary of that kind of religion and I love my own people in my church and what they teach, and felt it did not serve our denominations mission to be so undiscerning. THey brought in their guitar, drums, and praise music and who knows what they were preaching there. So I can sort of understand the offensiveness of doing this.

    I think from the Swedish bishop's perspective, it's about being hospitable to strangers, which is not all a bad thing. So, I don't really judge her too much. Maybe the Muslims will see that Christians are kind and generous people, I'm sure that is her intention.

    If only God had made His intentions clear about desecrating places of worship by interjecting false gods. (sarcasm)

    Do Muslims worship a false God? They believe in one God, just as we do.

    Yes.

    Belief in one god does not automatically equate to belief in the one true God.

    Are there any other gods? Scripture does not suggest there is. Muslims, like Jews and CHristians, share a similar narrative of the world and about God. Hindus do not. It's not wrong to recognize Christians, Jews, and Muslims worship the same God.

    They deny the deity of Jesus Christ, amongst other things.

    That doesn't mean they worship a different God.

    There's a difference between God and how we understand God.

    It is frankly uncharitable to accuse Muslims of idolatry, when their religion rejects that very concept. They may not know of God in Christ, but to say they are idolaters is a sin because it misrepresents what they believe. They worship the one true God... because they say so.

    Yeah, scripture is utterly silent about the practice of worshiping false gods. (sarcasm 2.0)

    If they deny the deity of Christ, are they not antichrist?

    I've been hearing a lot about her lately, and to be honest, it's quite sad to see someone like her holding such position in a church.

    What does that have to do with worshiping a false God?

    What is a false God exactly? The Muslim scholar Averroes was influential on Aquinas and his theology. Obvious Aquinas thought Muslims and Christians worshipped the same God, even if they had different understandings.

    Bigotry and tribalism do not befit those who believe in Jesus. If we are going to reject Islam, lete's reject it for the right reasons.

    I'm saying what you are talking about is not truely biblical. Worshipping the one true God, and having the correct beliefs about him, are separate issues. Jesus said even the Samaritans worship what they do not know, meaning it is possible for people outside the faith to worship God.

    You sound like you are saying Islam is like another church denomination. Islam denies that Jesus is Gods son.

    I did not say that at all. You need to work on your reading comprehension.

    I think you are confused a little. Muslims deny that Jesus is Gods son. You think we should worship with them?
