Methodist Seminary is Abdicating Christianity, Says Theologian

I really find it so sad that somehow Christians today are so delusional to believe this might actually be a good thing.
As Christians we have a choice. Every other so called Religion listed here is not a choice. It is law.
The fact of the matter and from what I see here is this. Somehow I think some people actually think the Christianity will be accepted by all these faiths. Which, if anyone has actually read their Bibles they would know what the outcome of all this will bring.
We need to pray for our Churches and watch out for pastors that may be turning this way.

I think the most puzzling part of all this is that somehow they seem to be implying that there are just different flavors of religious professional out there, and some of them show up as evangelical preachers, some of them show up as mainline pastors, some of them show up as imams, as rabbis, well you name it," he stated. "And from a Christian perspective, that's just profoundly not what we're doing as Christian ministers. As a seminary president, that's profoundly not what we're trying to produce
Despite a Methodist seminary president's insistence that he is not compromising Christianity by turning the school into a multi-religious one, evangelicals and conservative Christians remain unconvinced.
Claremont School of Theology, located in Southern California, "is basically abdicating the faith," said Dr. R. Albert Mohler, Jr., president of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Ky.
"There's just no other way you can actually understand this from any evangelical or orthodox Christian understanding," the prominent evangelical and theologian said Thursday on his radio program.
Students will be trained in their own religious traditions as well as gain understanding of other faiths through shared classes with the Academy for Jewish Religion and the Islamic Center of Southern California. Eventually, the seminary plans to expand its training to include Hinduism and Buddhism, among others.
