Clarity or confusion? Leaders have a choice to make

1/365 [dazed & confused]

Today we are challenging Christians everywhere to understand how the enemy has used confusion to muddy the waters of faith. Remember when the Emergent Church decided to ask questions instead of clarify doctrine, or have conversations about what the Bible means to you rather than clearly articulate what God’s Word says? In a strange turn of events, that’s no longer true. These days as the Emergent movement is re-emerging (yes, those of you who thought the Emergent Movement had died out need to hear this), those leaders are now clearly articulating what they are about: Gay marriage, no subsitutionary atonement, and the Bible being untrustworthy or a collection of allegorical stories.

And many of those strong preachers who once stood firm on the Truth of God’s Word and unashamedly preached it are now the ones bringing confusion to the table. We’re going to talk about this role reversal in the second segment.

But first, should Christians seek common spiritual ground with Islam? There is a growing number of Christian ministry leaders who say “Yes!”  Joining us this first segment is Elijah Abraham, who was once a Muslim. Born and raised in Baghdad, Elijah is now a born-again Christian and today is the founder and executive director of Living Oasis Ministries, reaching Muslims with the Gospel. Abraham is part of Biblical Missiology, a group dedicated to shining the light of truth on a movement called Chrislam, the blending of Christianity and Islam that has been infesting the Body of Christ and is a growing concern.

    hey mike & amy….great to hear elijah abraham and get a little preview of what he will be speaking about at the watchman conference. just want to make a brief comment about christians evangelizing muslims. it is a great desire but could easily backfire. a person cannot just say, "i am going to witness to muslims". anyone with that desire must first become educated about the muslim people, the religion of islam, why thy believe what they believe, what portions of God's word will be needed to overcome arguments on behalf of allah, etc. this would require considerable discipleship and training. perhaps the best training for such endeavors would come from those who have come out of the muslim faith and embraced christianity. without this type of preparation and the backing of the Holy Spirit, any well intentioned effort could produce the reverse effect and actually strengthen muslim beliefs. as always, being a witness of God's love goes a long way….mr. abraham's desire to help his muslim brothers and sisters, is most noble and honorable. i thank God for his comittment to stand fast in the truth!
