-Church of England Dispute: An Equivalence Among Religions?

by Dr. D ~ May 27th, 2008

There seems to be a dispute among the clergy within the Church of England over whether the church should seek to convert British Muslims to Christianity.

image  The Bishop of Rochester, the Right Reverend Michael Nazir-Ali, who was born is Pakistan, claims that the church is not really seeking to convert British Muslims to Christianity and should be; other Church of England leaders disagree.

I believe that those who teach that there is an equivalence among religions are entirely wrong and have no business being in the leadership of a Christian church, particularly those who imply that other religions should be respected as ‘another’ path to God.

We can respect and champion the rights of others to worship as they see fit and still continue to maintain that Christianity exclusively teaches that Jesus Christ alone is ‘the way the truth and the light’ and that ‘no one comes to the Father except through him’.

    Truth by it’s very nature is exclusive of all non-truth. All the major religions claim their beliefs to be true or else there would be no sense believing it. Two contradictory belief systems cannot be true. So it is self-defeating to be all inclusive. It is the same as saying there is no real truth at all and that Christianity is not distinguishable from man made religions. I think it is good to see truth where truth exist. All belief systems have some truth–but a distorted or incomplete truth.
