This teaching is being taken by ‘Christian missionaries’ to Muslim countries and is, basically, a mixture of Christianity and Islam. It is another form of Islam and is a perversion of the gospel of Christ. Stop laughing! I’m completely serious!
Ah, the groovy decade of the 1960’s with its hippies and acid trips, rears its ugly head and is now infesting the Holy Word of God. The brilliant idea of Muslim-friendly Bibles was conceived by a New Age type of world evangelism called the Insider Movement.
Believers can remain active in the mosque and they can call themselves Muslim without admitting any relationship with Christ. They perform the salat, though the prayer’s content may change. They affirm the shahada (Muslim creed), which emphasizes Mohammed as the prophet and may go on the ritual pilgrimage to Mecca. They also continue to consult the Koran. Sounds like trying to mix oil and water to me.
After numerous appeals have been rejected, a petition has been launched to call for the end of distribution of these misleading and heretical works. You can sign the petition at http://www.change.org/petitions/lost-in-translation-keep-father-son-in-the-bible. Please let your voice be heard! Perhaps it’s time Wycliffe lost its funding!
