Thanks for reading my blog. It tells me that you care about Muslims. Perhaps you have Muslim neighbors or Muslim coworkers and want to learn more about them. Perhaps you have been to a Muslim country. Whatever the reason I am glad you’re here.
Muslims haven’t always had very good interactions with Christians (think Crusades). Even today they see the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan as Christians fighting Muslims. You may think that is ridiculous, but it doesn’t change their perception. Muslims often hear Christians speaking against them as though they are our enemies. They are not (sin is).
I hope to help you learn more about Muslims and their religion so that you will understand them better and be more equipped to love them (though it would be even better for you to learn about Islam from them). We are called to love our neighbor as ourselves. We can’t do this if we don’t know our neighbor.
My hope for this blog is that God would bring greater peace between Muslims and Christians and between all people and himself. I believe the answer for both of these is Jesus Christ who is the Prince of Peace (see Isaiah 9:6).
Here are some key posts that I think will better help you see where I am coming from.
