My brother asked me if I would ever participate in an interfaith worship service.
This question was not the root of our discussion but just a secondary part as he was
trying to prove a point or see where I stood.
My answer to him was, "no". By interfaith service he meant, a worship service where
Christians, Jews, Muslims, maybe Hindus, etc (people or different faith) got together
for a worship service (similar to Church on Sunday).
There seems to be a big push for oneness and togetherness in the world when it comes to
religion, and from my perspective even though some of those services might have good intentions,
(of bringing people together) I think the danger is diluting the truth. Why would the world want to seek
Jesus if we present as the same as everyone else.
I also think about what Jesus said in John 4:23, "Yet a time is coming and has now come when the true worshipers will worship the Father in the Spirit and in truth, for they are the kind of worshipers the Father seeks."
So my question would be, is that True worship if you are mixing the light of Jesus
with other dark deceived perspectives, and in what Spirit are the other worshipers praying?
Is everyone in that service praying in the same spirit. If not, that would not seem like the true worship
that our Father is seeking.
How about you, would you consider worshiping in a inter-faith service as mentioned above?
I'm not speaking about different denominations/sects within the same faith, such as Catholics and Methodist, and Baptist. Though there are different doctrines, they all line up under the Christian Faith.
I'm mainly talking about different faiths.
Thanks and stay blessed.
