Retaliation to Reconciliation

Retaliation to Reconciliaton

I rarely post anything in my tweets about Islam – just not enough space to justify any comments.  One day I did and still today I have this person arguing with me that it is impossible to reach out to Islam and show them love – you can only do that to a Muslim.  Finally, one of the tweets recorded a message that was indicating a need to wipe out Islam and followed by another that said how can you love something demonic.

Well, you can see why Jesus said not to judge.  If you judge, there is no room for love.

When I say reach out to Islam, I mean that we reach out to the followers of Muhammad with honesty and openness, at the heart level, and share with them our need for love, repentance and forgiveness.

We have the reason for all the world’s problems and thereby know how to solve them.  It starts by our need to repent of the sin in our own hearts and not worry what others are doing.  Jesus “log in the eye” means I am the problem.  The issue in the world is me.  I am the Big Sinner in the story, and all the wars in the world were reflected in my heart.

My own heart harbours fear.  Anger.  Frustration.  I need my friends in Islam to help me and I need their forgiveness.  But mostly we need the forgiveness of God.  We need to go beyond “understanding” and “dialogue” and get down to a personal heart-to-heart level.

“Do not judge others, and you will not be judged. Do not condemn others, or it will all come back against you. Forgive others, and you will be forgiven. – Luke 6:37

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.
