According to a study completed in 2011, Islam is the world’s second largest religion with 1.57 billion adherents. Islam is also the fastest growing religion in the world with approximately 80% of its followers living outside of the Arab world.
There is little doubt that our world has been plunged into much confusion regarding the religion of Islam. Because of the tragedy that took place on September 11, 2001, Americans view Muslims critically and skeptically, but we also have a Great Commission to go into the world and make disciples of everyone. How are we supposed to do that when our faiths seem so conflicted?
Counterfeit Faith: Islam is a new series beginning on May 27, 2018 at 1:15pm that will shed light on this important topic. We will answer many questions about Islam. Where did it come from? What is the central message? Why are so many Muslims opposed to Western society. Is every Muslim a terrorist?
The goal of this series is not to criticize or demean Muslims, but rather educate and encourage Christians to love Muslims as God loves them. How much does God love Muslims? “For God so loved the WORLD…” The Just One died for the unjust. How many of us have gotten on our knees today and asked God to save Muslims as they are sinners who need Jesus Christ as Savior? How many of us will strive tomorrow to be the messenger God uses to deliver the message of salvation to such a person if God allows? How many of us are willing to love our neighbors as ourselves?
