Non-Christian Worship

Paul Wilkinson on attending worship services in non-Christian houses of faith:

My wife and I enjoy touring the worship facilities of other religions. We’ve been in a variety of these, including two Muslim mosques, a Hindu mandir and a Hare Krishna temple. At the temple we were served some deep fried cauliflower. Did “breaking bread” in that sense possibly mean something to them that we missed? Did we inadvertently partake of cauliflower communion?

Okay, scratch the last sentence; but sometimes — even in the cases above where we were simply visiting the facilities on non-holy days — you could find yourself in an unexpected situation.

Paul shares some scriptures to keep in mind when it comes to worship services in another faith. He also shares four principles for how to handle being present in another faith’s worship service. Really interesting post. Check it out here.
