The Washington National Cathedral, in its commemoration of the 10th anniversary of 9/11, has deliberately and carefully excluded evangelicals from their multi-religious commemoration. The service includes Buddhists, Hindus, and Muslims, but not evangelical Christians. Mind you, I am opposed to interfaith services in any shape or form and that is why, in a previous blog, I stated that I was relieved that the mayor of New York spared us the agony of watching the One, True God of the Bible worshipped alongside false gods.
National Cathedral (Washington, DC)The National Cathedral is a member of the Protestant Episcopal Cathedral Foundation. Having served as an Episcopal priest in the past for a number of years, the fact that they have excluded evangelicals from their service did not come as a surprise to me at all. Twenty-five years ago, I was one of only a few evangelicals left in that denomination and some of my colleagues labeled me as narrow-minded and intolerant. What was my sin? I took Jesus at His word and believed that He and He alone -- by dying on the cross and rising again -- is the only way to the Father and eternal life in Heaven for all people of all races and religions.
For believing Jesus own claim that He is the way, the truth, and the life (John 14:6), I was called intolerant. Never mind over 500 years of Anglican history that proclaimed these truths and enshrined them in its Thirty-Nine Articles of Faith. Never mind the many Anglican martyrs who have died defending this truth.

Satan will use anyone to stop God’s Word from being spoken - the gospel being spread. His tactic is control through intimidation.
What could be the agenda?
That is exactly what Islam is all about.
Jesus told us there would be many coming in His name that would be ‘wolves in sheep’s clothing’. The Heavenly Father is keeping the ‘score’ in His book and that is Written as well. AND His Will, will be done with or without these ‘holy’ men.
Given this building recently lost some of its top I am not so sure I would want to be anywhere near this building.
Good for the SB Convention. I have often times found myself speaking up in "hopeless" situations, and people invariably ask me why do I bother. I always answer that the day I face my Lord and Savior, there's one thing He won't hold against me. He won't say "why didn't you say something about it?" I have no control over how people react to my words, but I do have control over whether I speak out or not.
Are Roman Catholic, Eastern or Oriental Orthodox Christians represented?
Then why does he care about the interfaith service at the National Cathedral? Had they invited evangelicals then by his own standards the evangelicals should have decline the invitation anyway.
