Facts, arguments and logic


Westerners are raised on syllogisms and constructs of truth that are propositional.  It is somehow hard for those in the Middle East to believe that an anecdote could make them pungent a point as three logically connected paragraphs.

In many respects, the parables of Jesus take on the appearance of riddles for a Western readership because the point of contact, which was obvious in the original situation, is lost across the cultural divide.  For many Muslim peoples, however, both the parable form and the content of he biblical stories are easily accessible.

Story-telling should not be feared by Western missionaries to Muslims.






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.
