Witnessing to Muslims

Witnessing to MuslimsWitnessing to Muslims isn't reserved for the frontline missionaries serving in Muslim countries. Rather, witnessing to Muslims is integral to Jesus' command for us to "Preach the gospel to every creature." (Mark 16:15)

Witnessing to Muslims firstly requires us to confront and overcome our own cultural and ethnic prejudices: inside every Muslim who dresses and looks differently from us is a lost soul that needs to hear the true gospel.

Even terrorists who kill Christians are no worse than the Apostle Paul until he set off for Damascus, so we should also view every Muslim as a potential Paul to more Muslims.

Secondly, we need to understand the Muslim prejudices against us. While Satan has used and continues to use Muslims to attack Christians, Muslims are taught that it is the Christians who commit atrocities against Muslims, including during the crusades and the Western colonial rule.

When the opportunity arises, plundering and other atrocities having taken place during the crusades and Western colonial rule should be acknowledged. But it should also be made very clear that the perpetrators of those atrocities, while they may have claimed to be Christians, were acting against both the words and the example set by Jesus and therefore were not true Christians.

Unlike the crusaders, colonial powers and Muhammad, Jesus always preached and demonstrated non-violence, even when he was threatened:

"... Then they came and laid hands on Jesus and took Him. And suddenly, one of those who were with Jesus stretched out his hand and drew his sword, struck the servant of the high priest, and cut off his ear. But Jesus said to him, “Put your sword in its place, for all who take the sword will perish by the sword." (Matthew 26:50-52) "... And He touched his ear and healed him." (Luke 22:51)
