Bobblehead "Christianity"

Slice of Laodicea has a new article on interspirituality in Toyland:
"Now Muslims, Jews, Hindus and Sikhs are not different “religions” but “denominations”, and this company wants to have your child learn about all of these “denominations” when she plays with her dolls. “Look, Mommy, my dolly with the hajib has her Koran and her plastic explosives and she’s ready to blow up our church!”"
I think this whole notion of religions merely being different denominations started when "Christians" said the same thing about the Roman Catholic Church. Once it was accepted as merely a different denomination, it was easy to go to the next level which is to accept other cults and religions in the same way (Oneness Pentecostals who deny the Trinity like TD Jakes and Philips Craig and Dean are happily embraced as Christians even though they deny the Triune Godhead as three distinct Persons in the Godhead; New Age mysticism in the forms of Adele Calhoun --promoted by Tim Keller---and Richard Foster are favorite authors and teachers in "Christian circles", for example).
I expect the world to be clueless to the difference (although happily, there still are some that DO see the difference), but "Christians" who include Rome as merely another denomination of Christianity are willingly ignorant and have caused GREAT HARM to the cause of Christ Jesus. Shame on them. Even as a child I knew the RCC was a totally different religion. But in this day and age "Evangelicals" are mindless bobbleheads who want to get along with everyone except those who stand against error.
Those who embrace Rome are also embracing Islam. When Rome and "Evangelicals" are both saying they worship the same God as Muslims, it makes sense that Islam would be accepted as another denomination (after all, as two professors of Old Testament at The Master's Seminary have told me, "they have the Old Testament!")
Bill Barrick of The Master's Seminary believes as Imad Shehedah and Timothy George do, that Allah is God, if only in part: http://www.biblebb.com/files/MAC/SC03-1024CDNotes.htm (what NONE of them tell you is that Allah had to add mercy to himself, perfect his light, is the Greatest of Deceivers---they ONLY tell you what they claim Allah has "in common" with YAWEH--which is dishonest and anti-biblical).
Now there is a new label called "Muslim Christians". http://www.missionfrontiers.org/2008/04/200804.htm Ralph Winter is pushing this.
For a more in-depth treatment of this notion about Muslim Christianity including quotes and links go here and here for the article I wrote on this issue in a two-part series at Biblical Thought.
1Jo 2:22 Who is the liar but he who denies that Jesus is the Christ? This is the antichrist, he who denies the Father and the Son.

Isa 46:5 "To whom will you liken me and make me equal, and compare me, that we may be alike?

1Jn 2:23 No one who denies the Son has the Father. Whoever confesses the Son has the Father also.
Bobblehead "Christianity". Its absolutely pathetic.
