S'INSCRIRE A CHRETIENS EN RESEAU
By Michael Ireland
Former Prime Minister of Pakistan, Benazir Bhutto had at least one opportunity to hear the Gospel of Jesus Christ before she was assassinated.
At the Inaugural Summit on Peace and Tolerance, the late Benazir Bhutto, Dr. Ted Baehr, world renowned Christian theologian and cultural leader, and leading Muslims, Christians and Jews debated the conference theme of how to promote peace, the importance of interfaith relations, and building tolerance between Christians, Jews and Muslims.
Dr. Baehr told the Inaugural Summit on Peace and Tolerance, a conference of international Christian, Muslim, Jewish, and political leaders, that the love of God manifest in Jesus Christ is the answer, not tolerance.
According to Dr. Ted Baehr, chairman of the Christian Film and Television Commission, Bhutto was a gracious and intelligent, friendly person who told the conference that she was taught by her father that Islam was a religion of peace. Dr. Baehr told her and the delegates that Jesus Christ is the only answer. In Jesus, the love of God was made manifest who can take the hardest heart and transform it, he said.
"Tolerance is wrong," Dr. Baehr said. "I don’t tolerate my kids staying up late. I don’t tolerate my kids talking back. Man is always trying to establish a new global order. There is a global order, but the global order of Jesus Christ is the only true global order because it’s based on love and truth, not tolerance.
"The Bible says you have to be loving if you’re from God. If you’re not loving, you’re not from God. But, God’s love does not tolerate evil or falsehood."
Dr. Baehr said that Benazir Bhutto was committed to reforming Islam. "We pray that she found the Truth who is Jesus Christ before she was assassinated by the people of the Muslim jihad."
