Evangelizing to Muslims
Click the button "Sharing The Gospel With Muslims" for a simple, but key things to know when evangelizing to Muslims. Most important thing to do is get to know your Muslim friend. Learn how they think and genuinely become friends with them. Don't let them become your ministry project! Also our goal is not to win arguments, but to point them to truth. Don't focus on how Islam is false, but rather how the Gospel is true. The info on the link is very brief. For more in-depth answers on the topics on the link, please email via this link: /
#1 All Muslims Are Terrorist.
Not true. Most Muslims are against terrorism and are great people. Almost every Muslim I have met has invited me to their homes to be friends and get to know them. There is no reason to be afraid to befriend Muslims. (Granted I live in America haha).
#2 Many Muslims believe that Christians are free to live in sin.
They see grace as an excuse to sin and Jesus is a one way ticket into heaven. Simply explain to them the truth of the Gospel and how grace is victorious over sin, empowering us to live Holy lives. Also explain to them that just because someone confesses to be Christian, doesn't make them one. Talk about how extreme the call to Follow Jesus is. Turn the question around on them, asking if all Muslims are devout Muslims and they will surely say no.
#3 Do Christians and Muslims believe in the same God?
Christians, Jews, and Muslims all trace their lineage back to the Abraham and profess to believe in the God of Abraham. When you read it like this, then the answer is yes. But I think we should be more cautious and ask this questions also, "Who was Jesus?". Muslims believe Jesus is a prophet and do accredit Him as the Messiah, but by no means God. Christians on the other hand believe Jesus is literally God. So the answer to the original question, "Do Christians and Muslims believe in the same God?", in my opinion lies in the answer to "Who was Jesus?". Was Jesus only a prophet or was Jesus God?
#4 Muslim women are depressed or live hard lives.
From the outside looking in, it could seem that way. But if you were to ask a Muslim women, if they liked being Muslim they would respond with a energetic "YES". All they know is Islam, so even if they were mistreated they wouldn't know other wise. Majority of Muslims are brought up in a Muslim culture, which Islam is life. They don't know anything else. That is why Christianity is so weird for them. Christians are saved by grace. Muslims are saved by good deeds. Christian believe Jesus is God. Muslims believe Jesus is not. Christian believe in the resurrection of Christ. Muslims deny that there even was a crucifixion.
