A Church of England congregation in Kingston upon Thames held an interfaith celebration for Muhammad and Jesus at the beginning of December.
But Adrian Hilton, publisher of one of the U.K.’s most popular political and highest-ranking religion blogs, said, “Muhammad gets his prophethood, while Jesus gets neither his prophethood nor his priesthood; neither his kingship nor his messiahship. It’s the exalted Prophet Muhammad along with plain old Jesus, because to have added any of his claims to divinity would, of course, have alienated many Muslims.”
Earlier in the year, Westminister Abbey conducted two interfaith meetings with Muslims. Leo Hohmann, World Net Daily news editor, warns Christians about the danger of this kind of interfaith movement: “Allowing the Quran to be read inside a church is the equivalent of the ancient Israelites setting up an image of a false god in the Holy of Holies.”
