Archbishop of Canterbury decries Christians’ ‘history of sin of force,’ says to Muslims:

‘Let us be people of peace’

From the looks of this article, Welby didn’t say a word about Muslims’ history of “the tragic sin of force,” or about the ongoing Muslim persecution of Christians in Nigeria and elsewhere today.

THE Archbishop of Canterbury has urged Christians and Muslims to work together in the cause of peace, acknowledging that, at times in the past, Christians had failed to live up to the ideals of their faith in encounters with Islam.

Archbishop Welby’s call came in a sermon at All Saints’ Cathedral, Cairo, during a service of thanksgiving for the new Anglican/Episcopal Province of Alexandria.

“Christians are to be part of a Church that is told to conquer with love and peace,” he said. “Never, never with a sword, a bomb, or a plot. Either Christians demonstrate the truth of God or they demonstrate nothing by the quality of their lives.

“And I say to our dear friends from the Islamic community: how often have Christians got this wrong. Our history is one of the tragic sin of force. Let us be people of peace together.”…

Accompanied by Dr Fawzy, Archbishop Welby had talks with the Grand Mufti of Egypt, Shawky Allam, and Ahmed al-Tayeb, Grand Sheikh of al-Azhar, the main seat of Sunni Islamic scholarship. “At this time of great crises in our world,” the Archbishop wrote after the meeting, “it’s especially important that we keep building bridges of friendship across different faiths. Grateful for the Grand Imam of al-Azhar’s deep commitment to this vision.”…
