Guys, I tried to bring this thread on a constructive and friendly level and not let it deteriorate into some hatefull and derogatory pitfalll. There is godly advise in the Holy Bible on how to treat those of a different faith.
Can we please close this subject and not continue like that? The Christian Church in general is so much split up and in disunity already and plainly for the world to see, it is a crying shame. And Jesus prayed a very precious prayer in John 17 and in other places He repeated admonished us to make sure we act in a way that others can see that He was sent by the Father.
I don't see any gain for us, not on this board and not in our private witness in this world, if we mock unbelievers and have a discriminating attitude towards them. Jesus did not have that when He gave His life. St John says in 1.John 2:2 that He (Christ) is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world.
That includes all human beings all over the world. And we have been commissioned to be ambassadors for Christ (2.Cor.5:20) and we have been given tha ministry of reconciliation in verses 18-19 same chapter " And all things are of God, who hath reconciled us to himself by Jesus Christ, and hath given to us the ministry of reconciliation;
19. To wit, that God was in Christ, reconciling the world unto himself, not imputing their trespasses unto them; and hath committed unto us the word of reconciliation."
Does that mean anything to you at all?
There are many testimonies coming from the muslim nations of people turning to Christ . We should thank the Lord for those and ask Him in prayer to draw more and more each day to Christ, according to His own words that nobody can come to the Father unless the Father draws them (John 6:44), and Jesus also says in John 12:32 that "Now is the judgment of this world: now shall the prince of this world be cast out. And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me."
That's what we have to support in prayer, don't you agree?
