And just plain wrong.
The leaders of St. Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral in Scotland allowed a Muslim to recite verses from the Koran, specifically from Surah 19.
What are the contents of this verse?
It denies the deity of Jesus Christ, and claims that Jesus is not God’s own Son!
The passage specifically reads in verse 35:
It befitteth not (the Majesty of) Allah that He should take unto Himself a son. Glory be to Him! When He decreeth a thing, He saith unto it only: Be! and it is. (Surah19:35)
But the Word of God is crystal clear.
When Jesus was baptized, then rose from the water, God the Father declared:
“And there came a voice from heaven, saying, Thou art my beloved Son, in whom I am well pleased.” (Mark 1:11)
“All things have been committed to me by my Father. No one knows the Son except the Father, and no one knows the Father except the Son and those to whom the Son chooses to reveal him.” (Matthew 11:27)
“Then said they all, Art thou then the Son of God? And he said unto them, Ye say that I am.” (Luke 22:70)
“I and my Father are one.” (John 10:30)
The outcry from a retired bishop was immediate: “The authorities of the Scottish Episcopal Church should immediately repudiate this ill-advised invitation.”
What was particularly offensive? This reading took place on the Epiphany, the day when Christians learn about the appearance and divine identity of Jesus Christ the Messiah.
Following the international upset, the full video has been taken down by the AnglicanTV YouTube channel.
But here is a small sample of the video:
