“I am the way, the truth and the life. No man comes to the father except through me,” Jesus said. But apparently some people who are Christians are forgetting that.
Fuller Theological Seminary has launched an interfaith conflict resolution which includes the proscription of proselytizing for two years. What happened to “Go into all the world and preach the good news” as a command?
Of course, you probably couldn’t get Muslims to talk to you if they knew you were going to proselytize. And the idea is that finding out what they think can help eliminate differences. But I’m having trouble imagining that the terrorists who believe all infidels must die are going to be hanging out at Fuller. So we aren’t going to be able to talk to them anyway. And eliminating the difference would pretty much require that one group or the other convert.
Apparently this idea is old. This story is from last year. But it does take a while for anything in academia to be up and running.
