Paradigm shifts and compromise: What's next?

Christians today face an increasing hostility from outside, and indifference from within. As we continue to report on the birth pangs of our time in history, how do we reach out to people groups in this confusing climate? And more importantly, how do we do that both lovingly, and without compromising the Truth of God’s Word?

Later in the program, we are also going to talk about the latest Pew research survey about why Christianity is losing, and secularism is winning.

And if we have time we will get to a story in the news about how conservatives and even some liberals across the nation are outraged after a university suspended the school’s chief diversity officer after she signed a petition– in her church no less –to put a gay marriage referendum on the ballot in Maryland.

In our first segment, we’ll cover news of a local open house event for a mosque, and ask this question: If you could visit a mosque and ask a Muslim imam (religious leader) anything you want, what would you ask? Would you go? Joining me today is our guest, Elijah Abraham. Elijah is a born-again Christian who reaches out to Muslims with the Gospel, and he himself was once in their shoes having been raised a Muslim believer in Iraq.

Elijah is part of Biblical Missiology, the group that recently petitioned Wycliffe and its partners for removing familial terms to describe God and Jesus from Bible translations used to reach Muslim communities. Elijah is the founder and executive director of Living Oasis Ministries, where you’ll find a host of resources.  Check out Elijah’s news articles at Right On Weekly,an online magazine.

  1. Historically, and biblically when the people of God have played the harlot with God's enemies, at some point, trouble comes of it.

    In this time of growing apostacy our orders don't change:

    Use your gifts in accordance with the measure of faith you have received towards the edification of the body of Christ.

    1 Peter 4:7 But the end of all things is at hand: be ye therefore sober, and watch unto prayer. 8 And above all things have fervent charity among yourselves: for charity shall cover the multitude of sins. 9 Use hospitality one to another without grudging. 10 As every man hath received the gift, even so minister the same one to another, as good stewards of the manifold grace of God. 11 If any man speak, let him speak as the oracles of God; if any man minister, let him do it as of the ability which God giveth : that God in all things may be glorified through Jesus Christ, to whom be praise and dominion for ever and ever. Amen.

    1 Peter 5:1 The elders which are among you I exhort, who am also an elder, and a witness of the sufferings of Christ, and also a partaker of the glory that shall be revealed: 2 Feed the flock of God which is among you, taking the oversight thereof, not by constraint, but willingly; not for filthy lucre, but of a ready mind; 3 Neither as being lords over God's heritage, but being ensamples to the flock. 4 And when the chief Shepherd shall appear, ye shall receive a crown of glory that fadeth not away.

    5 Likewise, ye younger, submit yourselves unto the elder. Yea, all of you be subject one to another, and be clothed with humility: for God resisteth the proud, and giveth grace to the humble. 6 Humble yourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in due time:

    1 Peter 4:12 Beloved, think it not strange concerning the fiery trial which is to try you, as though some strange thing happened unto you: 13 But rejoice , inasmuch as ye are partakers of Christ's sufferings; that, when his glory shall be revealed, ye may be glad also with exceeding joy. 14 If ye be reproached for the name of Christ, happy are ye; for the spirit of glory and of God resteth upon you: on their part he is evil spoken of , but on your part he is glorified. 15 But let none of you suffer as a murderer, or as a thief, or as an evildoer, or as a busybody in other men's matters.

    Philippians 3:20 For our conversation is in heaven; from whence also we look for the Saviour, the Lord Jesus Christ: 21 Who shall change our vile body, that it may be fashioned like unto his glorious body, according to the working whereby he is able even to subdue all things unto himself.
