it's time to engage

Every fifth person in the world is from an Islamic background.  Islam is the second largest religion in the world – only Christianity has more adherents.

Muslims have a lot in common with Christians: they believe that there is only one God, who revealed His will to humankind throughout the ages; they believe that God created the world, that He sustains and directs it, and that we should live according to His will.

Muslims are against abortion, they want to protect marriage, and they are very zealous to win others to their faith.  In fact, Muslims believe they are the best of people and that Islam offers the world a solution after Christianity failed.

There are also a lot of differences between the two.

Muslims have a different concept of major characteristics of God, of law and sin, of heaven and hell, and on how to enter the heavenly realms.  In their practice they seem very devout.  They pray five times a day, fast during the day for a whole month, do good deeds, and want to visit their holy places at least once in a life time.

Christianity seems a much more internal spirituality that is not always seen from the outside, even though Jesus said love and unity are the  marks of true disciples.

The Incredibles: “Time to Engage”

About evanlaar1922

Have you ever noticed how many special ways God refers to us, His dear children? He calls us His beloved sons and daughters, the righteous, children of the kingdom, His anointed, royal priesthood, the faithful in Christ, His temple, His friends, and so many other loving names that speaks to who we are in Him. Also in many cases, the names we are given at birth have both biblical and heavenly identities tied into them. Our Heavenly Father who watches over us daily has created the ideal path for each of us to take to travel the journey of life, just as a father will make plans for his own child by putting things in place at a very early age for education, health, graduation, and marriage. God has predestined and equipped each of us to carry out a specific purpose that will create the design He desires to be in place for His kingdom to be effective in the earth.
