Joint picnic sponsored by Evangelical church
No I would not. I want nothing to do with unity as a christian with a false religion, I will not compromise the faith.
Rom 13:12 The night is far spent, the day is at hand: let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.
One of the errors of the church is to take the route of disengagement - separating ourselves from interactions with the very people we are called to minister to.
So of course I would attend such an event. Withdrawal is not the answer.
Jesus never withdrew from engagement - He got right into people's lives, did things, and then explained Himself. We should be doing likewise. As Jesus to the nation of Israel, so us to the world.
unity and compromise are never good when it involves false religions with false gods. It didn't work out so well for Solomon.
Did or did not Jesus dine with sinners? The parth of quietism - disengagement from the world is not the gospel way. As far as I can determine from the article, there would be no formal worship at the event.
The people of God are to be God's vehicle for blessing the world. Just as the nation of Israel blessed the world, so should we, the "true" Israel, engage the world for their benefit. And you do not engage the world by hiding from it.
Yes I would attend. I have many friends who are muslim, and it is a joy to witness to them through our relationship. There have been some who have embraced Jesus, so it is all weel worth it.
I would definitely attend, it would be a great way to share our faith with them and at the same time show them the love of Christ. I am sure many walked out of that picnic, amazed that our GOD is able to touch Christians to love Muslims in that way.
How would a person ever establish a relationship with a Muslim or anyone else and then witness to them if they refuse to be in their presence? Christ said to go into all the world, not stay in Christian ghettoes.
I prefer not to be in the midst of a group of people who want to kill me. Yes, I KNOW Jesus did that, but I am not Jesus.
I don't think this verse pertains only to marriage, primarily maybe, but not at the exclusion of other situations.
2Cr 6:14 Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness?
The vast majority of Moslems are not radical. Rather they are moderates and have no desire to kill you. We Americans are so fearful and that is very sad.
Going to a picnic is hardly yoking. I can't understand why someone who loves souls would not go to this. What an amazing opportunity!
Do you really think these folks would come to a picnic wanting to kill you?
I would go in a heartbeat and love the chance to show the love of Christ to needy souls.
This clearly erroneous view is all the more reason to expose yourself to them to understand that the vast, vast majority of Muslims have no desire to kill anyone.
What are the percentiles on this, and how did you determine them?
My son recently had lunch at Subway with a Muslim who asked him question after question about his faith in Christ.
Did he violate the "don't be yoked" rule?
Oh yeah, he didn't try to kill my son!
I couldn't access the website from where I am, but not knowing anything at this point, I would consider it.
You aren't Jesus and neither am I.
Never suggested we hide from anyone, so do not add words where none were written. I did however suggest we not compromise and join with false worshippers.
However you do as you please.
you think so do you.
Ask your average everyday common muslim if they think the muslims from 911 went to heaven. If they really are muslims then their answer will be yes, as thats the only way to go to heaven. Now how can anyone who says they believe in heaven not want to go, do muslims want to go to heaven, the only way is die killing unbelievers, as their holy book commands, so if they don't think unbelievers should be killed they aren't genuine muslims because they do not believe their own religion.
