Religious Syncretism

Religious Syncretism is the fusion of diverse religious beliefs and practices, however subtle it may be. An epitome of Religious Syncretism in America is to assume that all religious beliefs, especially those with similarities, lead to the same God. In a post-Christian culture it is dangerous to assume that when others refer to God they are referring to the God of the Bible. Which God is being addressed, for instance, when one touts the phrase, “God bless America?” Not all who speak of God know God, thus we should be careful of the many voices in the world that might proclaim a form of religion and focus only on the true Word that God has given us in his sacred scripture.
