A great Invitation

March 22, 2009

basmallahA new voice is heard from leading Muslim scholars and others among them. They want to go side by side with Christians. With their new initiative A Common Word they want to speak to each other and come to each other. This gives a challenge. In history we don’t see this since the golden age of the Muslims in Spain in the mid-centuries when they live together with their Jewish brothers.

Isn’t that a good sign? But does Christianity understand? For many years real Christians are put to the edge of society. Because secular liberals dominate the western world. Many Christians, katholic and protestant are going with this mainstream. They didn’t obey G-d. It’s obviously, here in Holland, they didn’t accept you in politics and even in church when you seriously make matters with faith. Personally I have much more in common with Muslims then the Western secular people. And when you read the letter you’ll see that, I guess, they rather teach the Christians then they only make a dialog. They teach Christians because they are showing obedience to the commands and G-d. They teach them because their knowledge of scriptures. And they make the Western world fully ashamed because they had left G-d.

In the Western world Christianity was nearly disappeared. Two hundred years ago the process of destruction began. The Enlightenment and the French Revolution puts Europe into darkness. At that time there was a terrible might appearing with a great threat for honest Christians. Maybe you can call it liberal or social or whatever, but it was against Christianity. And against Islam and Judaism. In fact it was against G-d. And since 9/11 the change came. Who made that change? Although Muslims acted here and I’m sure the purpose wasn’t to put Christianity to new life,  I think it was G-d, accomplishing his world. He wants to bring people on their knees. Praying to him and worship him. And He is still going on, diminishing the value of money etc. It’s all His. And He wants also to make his creation, his man His. He wants us, Western people far away from Him. Muslims, serving Him but far from good. He wants His chosen people, the Jews, so hardly understand. Because he wants to be King. Isn’t it time for repentence?

For me it’s much easier to walk with a Muslim or (rather) a Jew then many Christians of our days. And I’m glad to receive messages like this. It gives me hope that in our days the Kingdom of the Messiah will be established. And the devil who deceived will be thrown into the lake of fire.

Maybe you think you don’t thrust them, they only want to extend and abuse our democracy to rule the World. But then I say, who rules the world at this time? Legalizing abortus, euthanasia, gay-marriage and so forth? Maybe you say I  don’t believe in Allah. Then I say I don’t believe in the G-d of the (Christian) Western world.

What they do is back to the very base: Love G-d and your neighbour. And that’s the point. They see the commandment clear. And we can agree. This is what we have to do. And I guess they have more insight in the scriptures at that point as many Christians have. Here we have the base Law. It would be great when we together obey this commandment of love.
