Texas Mega-Church Welcomes Islamists to 'Global Faith Forum'
by Ryan Mauro
The 3,000-member NorthWood Church of Keller, T.X. is holding a "Global Faith Forum" in November. In yet another Islamist-attended interfaith event, Christians will hear from a former Saudi intelligence chief, a former director-general of Al-Jazeera, officials from U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entities and the non-Muslims who embrace them.
Pastor Bob Roberts. Jr. is known for his efforts to build-bridges with Muslims. He spoke at the "Christ at the Checkpoint" conference put together by Palestinian Christians at Bethlehem Bible College. So did Florida Pastor Joel C. Hunter, who has been negative attention for his association with the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR), a U.S. Muslim Brotherhood entity. Hunter is also critical of "Christian Zionists."
An article posted on Hunter's website reports how the "Christ at the Checkpoint" audience, including students from Wheaton and Eastern Universities, "were moved by the testimony of Palestinian men and women who shared the pain and suffering they experience on a daily basis caused primarily by the continuing occupation."
