A Christian and Bible believing couple equally yoked together spiritually in Christ does not worry about the deep theological differences. They start off in unity. The man does not have to worry about her being an infidel, or unbeliever. He does not have to exert patriarchal control, just to keep a semblance of unity. The family is more harmonious.
In Islam a mosque (masjid) serves as a place where Muslims come together for prayer; an Imam leads the prayer five times a day and delivers a sermon on Friday afternoon prayer. This gives most Americans an assumption that the mosque is simply a place where Muslims go to worship, but this is a wrong assumption. To understand the role of the mosque in a Muslim’s life, one has to check on Islam as faith, its history and how Muhammad lived his life and used the mosque for his purpose.
There is a subtle, dangerous and perilous movement roaming about, raising voices for a false unity between Islam and Christianity. It is called Chrislam, claiming to share the same God, the prophets and the Truth. The idea behind it is to relativize all differences for the common good to create a utopian society.
Interestingly, here are some Muslims also propagating it and yet after a glance, one finds that they are only involved so to take advantage of preaching and propagating their faith.
When it comes to sharing the Gospel with Muslims, we find that Muslims comprise at least 39% of all un-evangelized people of the world. Only 1% of mission force is directed to reach them. Most of the work by some nowadays is directed towards Muslims to make them feel at home in their own religion in the name of ‘tolerance’ and ‘love’. Indeed many of such churches, their mission committees quote the scriptures as ‘Whoever does not love does not know God, because God is love’ (1 John 4:8).
In the USA, instead of a military attitude the resurgent Islam has adopted Muhammad’s season of diplomacy from his Meccan period. Although traces can be found of militant Islam and of terror, Muslims are using, in the forefront, all legal means to spread their ideology. Financial aid in the millions is given to Islamic organizations and secular Universities and colleges by Saudi Arabia and Gulf states to enlighten people in the USA to see Islam as the best way of the Abrahamic path. Muslim organizations are using every available source from IT to PR.
