Steven Masood shares his thoughts on how to respond to some questions Muslim friends ask about our Christian faith: 1. Do you believe in Muhammad and the Qur’an? 2. I believe in Jesus as a prophet of God, why can’t you believe in Muhammad as the final prophet? 3. Why don’t you become a Muslim? 4. Why do you believe in three gods? 5. How can Jesus be the Son of God? 6. Jesus was not really crucified. 7. The Bible has been altered, corrupted. 8. Why is Jesus the only way?
Khalifa in Islamic terms is the civil and religious leader of a Muslim state, considered to be a representative of God on earth. On the other hand his system to rule is called 'Khilafa'. Many radical Muslims believe a Khalifa will unite all Islamic lands and people, as well as subjugate the rest of the world to Islam. Do you know that in the light of the Bible, Christians do not have to choose a Khalifa or an Imam? God has already chosen one -- Jesus the Messiah.
A Biblical fear of God, for the believer in Christ, includes understanding how much God hates sin. The fear of God has several results. We avoid evil (Proverbs 16:6). God delights in us and extends His mercy through Christ (Psalm 147:11; Luke 1:50).
