Jesus and Satan joining hands in fighting HIV/AIDS?

It keeps on happening! Satan wanting to join forces with Jesus in fighting a so-called evil. The problem with this is that the reasons for doing so between our dear Lord and the fiend of hell are diametrically opposed to each other.

Christ came to bring deliverance to the elect. Satan wants to bring bondage. Christ brought us the light. Satan only brings light-less darkness of oppression. Christ's deeds are done with the good of mankind in mind. Satan comes to kill, steal and destroy!

So, if these two kingdoms--the kingdom of light and the kingdom of darkness--are so irreconcilable, how is it that some of the church's so-called leaders think that it would be acceptable to join forces with the devil to fight any scourge on earth?

It seems that Rick Warren thinks that it would be acceptable to link the cause of Christ with the cause of the devil!

Warren, the senior teaching pastor at Saddleback Church in California, has invited U.S. senator Barack Obama to speak to Warren's church on Dec 1, 2006.

Now, for those who do not know who Obama is, as a state legislator he stood for abortion through the complete term of pregnancy while opposing parental notification. He also opposed all bans on partial-birth abortion. He also supports the homosexual agenda including so-called "hate crimes" against homosexuals, which may in due course be used to silence the clergy on this issue. He even opposed the right of life for babies who survived failed abortions.

Is this the type of person that Warren wants to associate with?

Discernment goes a long way in doing what is right with the right people. However, when we start joining forces with the forces of darkness, it shows our own lack of discernment and indeed our lack of understanding our Biblical mandate!
