I think that inter faith was practised in the bible too.
I agree with those that say that inter-faith worship is not biblical.
Whilst I agree that in an inter-faith gathering we may mingle with those that do not conform to our beliefs, and share our messages with them, I do not think that we should worship with them. We face the risk of worshipping their false gods when they will summon us to pray with them.
Our God, our Heavenly Father, and Jesus Christ are the prime objects of our worship in our Christian faith, but to have other religions invite us to pray to their gods and worship them is a breach of the first two and/or even the third of the ten commandments in Exodus Chapter 20.
bringing peace to the people and praying together are two totally different things.
Here's a piece that may help:
Don’t all religions basically teach the same thing?
Many people wonder why we make such a fuss about Jesus Christ and Christianity, since they believe all religions are basically the same. They assume that all faiths are all talking about the same thing, but are putting it in a different way.
One man once gave this illustration. He said, “Suppose you take 10 men and blindfold them, and lead them over to an elephant. You now let each of them touch a different part of the elephant—tail, trunk, etc.—without telling them what they are touching.
“You then lead them back inside, take off their blindfolds and tell them to describe what they touched.” The man then asked, “Would their descriptions agree?” The answer of course is no.
The man then made this observation: even though these ten men touched the same thing, they did not agree because each touched a different part or, if you please, experienced it from a different angle. He went on to conclude, “Isn’t it the same in the area of religion?
“Aren’t all the different religious groups—Christians, Moslems, Mormons, Buddhists, etc.—experiencing the same God, yet explaining it in different ways? Thus can’t they all be true, but with each giving a different emphasis?”
The problem with this illustration is identifying the elephant with God. You are assuming that all these people are experiencing the same God, when in fact this is not true. Christianity and Islam cannot both be true at the same time. Neither can Mormonism and Buddhism both be correct simultaneously, nor can Christian Science and Roman Catholicism.
All religions cannot be true at the same time, because they teach many things completely opposite from one another. They all may be wrong, but certainly they all cannot be right, for the claims of one will exclude the other.
As to matters of salvation and the person of Jesus Christ, only historic Christianity recognizes Him as the eternal God becoming a man who died for the sins of the world and arose again the third day. Salvation is obtained only by putting one’s trust in this Jesus.
The Jesus of Islam was not the Son of God who died for the sins of the world; neither is the Jesus of Mormonism or Christian Science the same Jesus as revealed in the Bible.
Salvation is not by grace and through faith in these religions, but it is a matter of works. It can then be observed that we are dealing with different religious ideas that are not compatible with one another.
Even though many religions seem to be the same on the surface, the closer one gets to the central teachings the more apparent the differences become. It is totally incorrect to say that all religions are the same.
The God of the Christians is not the same God as that of the Mormons, Moslems, or Christian Scientists. If the God of the Bible is the only true God, then the other gods are non-existent and should not be worshiped.

Just Another Book?
by Dr. Jason Lisle
Other religions claim that they have the true written word of some god. What makes Christianity different? Dr. Jason Lisle, AiG–U.S., answers this common question.
First let me make it clear that I am a Christian and do enjoy reading your site. However, I do have a question in regards to your feedback written on February 13th. In your answer you made a good case as to why believing in God is correct and why evolution is wrong. However, you did not address why the Christian bible is trustworthy and the written word of God, while other religious books of worship are not. I thing Muslims, Mormons, or people of other faiths could use your same arguments. Thus, using your argument, Muslims could say that proves the Koran is the written word of God. The Koran certainly says it’s author is God, just like the bible does. So, can you please do a follow up and explain how we know that only the Bible is the written and actual word of God? I think such a follow up would help those who question why Christianity is correct, while other religions are wrong. Thanks.
Thanks for this question; I am happy to clarify. Remember, the argument is not “The Bible is the Word of God because it says it is.” Rather, the argument is “The Bible is the Word of God because it says it is and any alternative leads to absurdity.” It’s this last part of the argument that closes the loopholes and provides the proof that the Bible really is what it claims to be, whereas counterfeit religious books fall short.
If the Bible were not the Word of God, we would have no foundation for all the things we take for granted, such as laws of logic, uniformity of nature, and morality. The law of non-contradiction, for example, is based on the self-consistent nature of the biblical God (2 Timothy 2:13). The Bible itself tells us that all knowledge depends upon God (Proverbs 1:7; Colossians 2:3). Most other religious books do not make the claim that all knowledge is deposited in their god; and if they did, they would not be able to make good on the claim. Therefore, the argument will only work for the Bible.
For example, it is the Bible that tells us that God will uphold the future as He has the past (Genesis 8:22). All science depends upon such uniformity. The biblical God is beyond time (2 Peter 3:8), and, thus, only He is in a position to tell us that the future will be like the past.
This is not true of the Mormon conception of God. The Mormon gods change with time; as such, they are not beyond time and are not in a position to tell us anything about the future. There is no basis for uniformity in Mormonism. Nor can Mormonism (or any polytheistic religion) account for a universal objective moral code. Which god’s rules should we follow if there is more than one god?
Perhaps most importantly, Islam and Mormonism both endorse the Bible (or at least portions of the Bible), but then they contradict it. For example, the Koran teaches that Jesus is not the Son of God (Surah 4:171), but was merely an apostle and that He was not crucified (Surah 4:157). This clearly contradicts the gospel accounts, yet the Koran endorses the gospel of Jesus (Surah 3:3).
The Bible teaches that subsequent revelation from God must be consistent with previous revelation (Deuteronomy 13:1–6). Therefore, Mormonism and Islam must be rejected on their own terms. These religions cannot be correct because they are intrinsically incoherent; they contradict the Bible while simultaneously endorsing the Bible. It is also worth noting that since the god of Islam contradicts himself, there is no basis for the law of non-contradiction in the Muslim worldview.
This relatively short response is not meant to be a thorough refutation of all non-biblical religions. But hopefully it does give you the flavor of the argument. The biblical God alone provides the preconditions for knowledge in a way that is consistent and non-arbitrary. The gods of other religions are always revealed to be mere idols that cannot do what the biblical God does.

The Dawning of the Worldwide Human Tracking System
Mark of the Beast Updates Page:
The Mark of the Beast
It's hard to now imagine life 'pre-iPhone', and soon we won't be able to remember what life was like
without the RFID chip.
We have become a worldwide, connected society whose every move is being tracked and cataloged. For now, it's all voluntary, and the New World Order has to reply on making cool devices to lure us in to wanting to be tracked - iPhone, smart phones, RFID chips - but the day is coming where you will be forced to have a chip put inside your body. When that day comes, you will know who the Antichrist is because he will be the one in power over the whole world. Accepting that chip will mean you side with the Antrichrist, and against God. Accepting the chip will doom your soul to Hell forever. Whatever you do, do not ever let anyone put a chip inside your body. It will be better to side with God and die at the Antichrist's hand then to accept the chip and spend eternity in Hell.
What Is RFID? (Radio Frequency IDentification)
Radio Frequency IDentification is an automatic data capture technology that uses tiny tracking chips affixed to products. These tiny chips can be used to track items at a distance--right through someone's purse, backpack, or wallet. Many of the world's largest manufacturing companies would
like to replace the bar code with these "spy chips," meaning that virtually every item on the planet--and the people wearing and carrying those items--could be remotely tracked. There is currently NO REGULATION protecting consumers from abuse of this technology. source - spychips.com
The Mark of the Beast is lurking in the heart of the RFID chip
For years you have been told, through readers of bible prophecy and conspiracy theorists, that the mark of the beast was coming soon and that people who receive an implantable microchip. This has been swirling aroundfor about the past 30 years or so. Well, the years ticked by with no progress on making a chip that could do that, and eventually people began to file rumor that under "bogus" and forgot about it. When all of a sudden, we have this:
Sure sounds like the mark of the beast to me....
|Now, I ask you, does that sound like a conspiracy theory to you?
What it does sound like is the Vice-President of the United States telling the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court that "one day you will rule on implantable chips in human beings". Wow...take a moment, let it sink in. And that's how it goes with most conspiracy theories, they have a very strong basis in reality. And yes, there is a government plan to put a chip in your body, and you need to decide if this is a good thing or a bad thing. Just how strong is the push to bring this technology to
the people? This strong -

IBM is showing us the future - believe it.
|Should you get chipped? All depends on whose side you are on.
God's Side, or Satan's. Because this system is what the Antichrist will use during the Tribulation.
When fully activated, it will be the Devil's mark, take it at your own peril. This is what God says will happen to every one who takes the mark:
"And the third angel followed them, saying with a loud voice, If any man worship the beast and his image, and receive [his] mark in his forehead, or in his hand, The same shall drink of the wine of the wrath of God, which is poured out without mixture into the cup of his indignation; and he shall be tormented with fire and brimstone in the presence of the holy angels, and in the presence of the Lamb: And the smoke of their torment ascendeth up for ever and ever: and they have no rest day nor night, who worship the beast and his image, and whosoever receiveth the mark of his name.

|The mark of the beast in advertising
The New World Order is very clever. When they want to advance their agenda of a One World Government with every under their control, they have many ways to get the job done. One of these ways is through marketing and advertising.
TheSun.com has an interesting story today about a new technology being test marketed in Japan
right now. This product is a billboard with facial recognition software to scan your face, determine
your gender, and then deliver an appropriate ad.
"Retailers are targeting individual shoppers with digital billboards like those in the hit Tom Cruise
film Minority Report. Cameras in the advert hoardings identify the age and sex of passers-by then display relevant products. The makers claim images of faces are erased immediately but some consumers fear the billboards will capture their expressions and responses to the ads. The signs are being tried out in Japan. Digital advertising expert Omaid Hiwaizi, 40, from London agency Chemistry, said: "Companies will be watching closely to see if they do well." source - thesun.com
Sounds kinda cool, doesn't it? Like something you would have a lot of fun "playing with" as you are
walking down the street. And that's exactly what the NWO is counting on. Because that is how
they will get you to accept 24-hour facial surveillance of each and every person on this planet. They
make it fun, make it catchy...they make it something you look at with awe and admiration. And the
whole time, what they are really doing, is laying the snares to stamp, catalog and process each and
every one of us. When the system is finished, this is what the bible says will be the result:
"And he causeth all, both small and great, rich and poor, free and bond, to receive a mark in their right hand, or in their foreheads: And that no man might buy or sell, save he that had the mark, or the name of the beast, or the number of his name. Here is wisdom. Let him that hath understanding count the number of the beast: for it is the number of a man; and his number [is] Six hundred threescore [and] six." Revelation 13: 16-18
Truly this is end times bible prophecy being fulfilled before our very eyes.
|Note: If the implantable RFID chip does turn out to the the Mark of the Beast, which seems highly
likely, it will not be until the actual reign of the Antichrist that it will have it's power and signifigance.
The Bible is quite clear that receiving the Mark, during the Tribulation, is completely and obviously
tied to the worship of the antichrist. No one will take the mark by accident. You will be asked to
swear allegiance to the antichrist as an act of worship. Anyone receiving the mark during the time
of the Great Tribualtion will know exactly why they are getting it. It will be beacuse they will be
acknowledging, falsely, the antichrist as God.
Positive ID, formerly known as VeriChip, is the company that created the implantable RFID chip for human use.
So if you were today to get a senior relative with Alzheimers chipped or a young child chipped to thwart a kidnapping, that would not be considered receiving the mark of the beast. Howver, NTEB highly advises against having anyone you know and loved chipped. Ever. Resist it, reject it, fight it
with your dying breath. The mark of the beast is real.

Wal-Mart Radio Tags to Track Clothing
"Wal-Mart Stores Inc. plans to roll out sophisticated electronic ID tags to track individual pairs of jeans and underwear, the first step in a system that advocates say better controls inventory but some critics say raises privacy concerns. Starting next month, the retailer will place removable "smart tags" on individual garments that can be read by a hand-held scanner. Wal-Mart workers will be able to quickly learn, for instance, which size of Wrangler jeans is missing, with the aim of ensuring shelves are optimally stocked and inventory tightly watched. If successful, the radio-frequency ID tags will be rolled out on other products at Wal-Mart's more than 3,750 U.S. stores.
"This ability to wave the wand and have a sense of all the products that are on the floor or in the back room in seconds is something that we feel can really transform our business," said Raul Vazquez, the executive in charge of Wal-Mart stores in the western U.S. Before now, retailers including Wal-Mart have primarily used RFID tags, which store unique numerical identification codes that can be scanned from a distance, to track pallets of merchandise traveling through their supply chains. Wal-Mart's broad adoption would be the largest in the world, and proponents predict it would lead other retailers to start using the electronic product codes, which remain costly. Wal-Mart has climbed to the top of the retailing world by continuously squeezing costs out of its operations and then passing on the savings to shoppers at the checkout counter. Its methods are widely adopted by its suppliers and in turn become standard practice at other retail chains." source - Wall Street Journal

Next Generation is also testing a machine that includes a 46" touch-screen display that acts similarly to an iPhone display. The user can click on an item, flip the image and even see the nutrional information on the back of the packaging. Ioannou says initial results are good saying, "The feedback is extraordinary." The machines include internally mounted cameras to monitor what is going on outside of the machine. The company is also installing wireless or Ethernet connections on all of its current machines so there will be real-time reporting of the amount of goods in the machine for restocking purposes. Monitors will even be able to report when a coin is stuck in the machine. All of the current machines will be upgraded by the end of 2011." source - MyFoxNY

The Government's New Right to Track Your Every Move With GPS.
Government agents can sneak onto your property in the middle of the night, put a GPS device on the bottom of your car and keep track of everywhere you go. This doesn't violate your Fourth Amendment rights, because you do not have any reasonable expectation of privacy in your own driveway - and no reasonable expectation that the government isn't tracking your movements.
The mark of the beast will cover the whole earth
That is the bizarre - and scary - rule that now applies in California and eight other Western states. The U.S. Court of Appeals for the Ninth Circuit, which covers this vast jurisdiction, recently decided the government can monitor you in this way virtually anytime it wants - with no need for a search warrant. It is a dangerous decision - one that, as the dissenting judges warned, could turn America into the sort of totalitarian state imagined by George Orwell. It is particularly offensive because the judges added insult to injury with some shocking class bias: the little personal privacy that still exists, the court suggested, should belong mainly to the rich.
The court went on to make a second terrible decision about privacy: that once a GPS device has been planted, the government is free to use it to track people without getting a warrant. There is a major battle under way in the federal and state courts over this issue, and the stakes are high. After all, if government agents can track people with secretly planted GPS devices virtually anytime they want, without having to go to a court for a warrant, we are one step closer to a classic police state - with technology taking on the role of the KGB or the East German Stasi." source - Yahoo News

"They have also led to growing protectionist pressures as countries scramble for export markets as a source of growth."

iPhone and Android Apps Breach Privacy
Few devices know more personal details about people than the smartphones in their pockets: phone numbers, current location, often the owner's real name--even a unique ID number that can never be changed or turned off. These phones don't keep secrets. They are sharing this personal data widely and regularly, a Wall Street Journal investigation has found. An examination of 101 popular smartphone "apps"--games and other software applications for iPhone and Android phones--showed that 56 transmitted the phone's unique device ID to other companies without users' awareness or consent. Forty-seven apps transmitted the phone's location in some way. Five sent age, gender and other personal details to outsiders. Among the apps tested, the iPhone apps transmitted more data than the apps on phones using Google Inc.'s Android operating system. Because of the test's size, it's not known if the pattern holds among the hundreds of thousands of apps available. Apps sharing the most information included TextPlus 4, a popular iPhone app for text messaging. It sent the phone's unique ID number to eight ad companies and the phone's zip code, along with the user's age and gender, to two of them. Both the Android and iPhone versions of Pandora, a popular music app, sent age, gender, location and phone identifiers to various ad networks. iPhone and Android versions of a game called Paper Toss--players try to throw paper wads into a trash can--each sent the phone's ID number to at least five ad companies.

Apple patent reveals plans for holographic display
"And he had power to give life unto the image of the beast, that the image of the beast should both speak, and cause that as many as would not worship the image of the beast should be killed." Revelation 13:15
A recently granted patent reveals that Apple, the company behind the iPod and iPhone, has been working on a new type of display screen that produces three dimensional and even holographic images without the need for glasses. The technology could be used to produce a new generation of televisions, computer monitors and cinema screens that would provide viewers with a more realistic experience. The system relies upon a special screen that is dotted with tiny pixel-sized domes that deflect images taken from slightly different angles into the right and left eye of the viewer. By presenting images taken from slightly different angles to the right and left eye, this creates a stereoscopic image that the brain interprets as three-dimensional. Apple also proposes using 3D imaging technology to track the movements of multiple viewers and the positions of their eyes so that the direction the image is deflected by the screen can be subtly adjusted to ensure the picture remains sharp and in 3D. source - Telegraph UK

"The legal, technical and financial conditions are ready to start the process of issuing this identity document," Felipe Zamora, responsible for legal affairs at the Mexican Interior Ministry, told journalists Thursday. The documents, which will include the eye's image as well as fingerprints, a photo and signature, will be 99 percent reliable, Zamora said. Critics, including the National Human Rights Commission, have slammed the system, expressing concern that compiling personal data could violate individual rights. The move will be introduced gradually, with some 28 million minors taking part in a first two-year stage, due to cost 25 million dollars. The cards are due to start for adults from 2013. Iris recognition is increasingly used in airports, controlling access to restricted areas, and prisoner booking and release. source - Brietbart
|The Mark of the Beast
Now you know what the mark of the beast is, and how society is rushing headlong into it's date
with the antichrist. If the day comes when you are asked to choose whether or not you will be
implanted with a chip, you know what your answer should be. No. This is not a game, and it is not some science-fiction story. The mark of the beast is real. The mark of the beast is happening. The mark of the beast is fulfillment of bible prophecy, and cannot be stopped. But there is one thing you can do...
Don't take it.
I do certainly agree that the every prophecy in Revelation will be fulfilled. However, it's not the chip; It's in Fiji and all over the world...the mark can only be discerned SPIRITUALLY...and Almighty God meant it to be like that...God is full of wisdom. Our physical naked eyes can see the physical chip you mentioned above; but will never ever be capable of seeing things that are invincible beyond the veil (Hebrew 6 : 19).
" For judgement, I am come into this world, that they which see not might see; and that they which see might be made blind" ( John 9:39) There are two types of people , those who "see"the truth and those who choose to be "blind" to His truth.
Jesus said; "Man shall not live by bread alone, but every word that comes from the mouth of God" (Matt 4:4).
The word of the Messenger of God is more important than the belief in miracles. " When it is written in the Holy Books that a man was blind and recovered his sight , the meaning is that he was inwardly blind, and he obtained spiritual vision. Or that he was ignorant and become wise. Or that he was worldly and became heavenly"
