The definition of Interfaith and syncretism is:

I first heard of this obnoxious concept from having contact with several wiccan store owners in my local area. They sell a bumper sticker that uses several religious symbols such as: The Christian Cross, Jewish Star of David, pentacle, muslim crescent, Hindu, Buddhist etc with the words “co-exist” on it..

In reality all peoples do “Co-exist” fairly well in the West. Each religion doesn’t attack another’s property, person or place of worship.

In this series of statements here is what “Interfaith” is meant to mean:

“Interfaith Community Church considers all faiths as paths toward one God.”

Really? Each religion has a particular Theology and Doctrine but in the end we all wind up facing God?

Nah….

What these folks preach. If you call it that… is called syncretism.

The definition of syncretism is:

“Syncretism Advanced Information”

“Syncretism is the process by which elements of one religion are assimilated into another religion resulting in a change in the fundamental tenets or nature of those religions. It is the union of two or more opposite beliefs, so that the synthesized form is a new thing. It is not always a total fusion, but may be a combination of separate segments that remain identifiable compartments.”

You’d think that it would be ok followers of various religions to simply agree that there are many differences between each other and leave well enough alone. But no… They have to try to combine religions like old time Babylon and create some kind of religious hybrid.
