Christians, Muslims, and Jews worshipping “Together!”

The answer is yes!

Hundreds of people of different religions came together for a spectacular interfaith service on Sunday, November 20th 2016 in honor of Thanksgiving.

This Interfaith Service was held at the Islamic Center in Prince Frederick, Maryland, USA and was sponsored by Calvert Interfaith Council; Islamic Center of Southern Maryland, and Daughters of Abraham.

Having attended, I can report to you that everything was fantastic! Meeting people of different religions, the interfaith service featuring speakers from each religion, delicious food following the service, and a tour of the Mosque where this event was held.

I have learned that two important principles are taught in both Islam and Christianity:     (1) Love one God, and (2) Love thy Neighbor. These are the cornerstones of the common ground between Islam and Christianity.

Combine these two principles with the realization that God is “omnipotent”, and I can truthfully say that I am not only a Christian but I am also an “Inclusive Christian.”  Reasons why, are that: (a) I believe in God’s ability and preference to save people in non-Christian religions, while at the same time (b) I maintain “my” love, belief, and commitment to Jesus Christ as my personal Lord, Savior, and connection with God.  And there are very good reasons why I am 100% sure, that for me, Jesus Christ is truly the way, the truth, and the life.  For instance, read the post titled “There You Are! (How this whole thing started)”

I also believe wholeheartedly “you” have good reasons for your beliefs.

The good news for all of us around the world is that God is omnipotent.  As such, it makes sense that “God connecting with me through Jesus Christ” does not preclude God from the ability to connect with other people through other religions. God offers salvation to all people, even though not all people are fortunate enough to learn the truth about Jesus Christ before they die.  I am so thankful I did.

Happy Thanksgiving to you, your family, and your friends.
