Elijah offers a unique perspective on the nature of Islam. He was born and raised as a Muslim in Iraq, but converted to Christianity and started Living Oasis Ministries, an organization devoted to teaching American churches about Islam and the best means for reaching out to Muslims with the Gospel of Jesus Christ.
Living Oasis Ministries is called to equip the saints in the U.S. and around the world to reach Muslims for Christ, to proclaim the Word of God to those who do not know Him through preaching and teaching the Word of God, and to help the global Church challenge Islam with the gospel through apologetics.
With the rise of radical Muslim terrorism, the words “Islam” and “Muslim” illicit a lot of emotions from a growing number of people. Some people fear Muslims, believing it is just a matter of time until they become terrorists. Others deny the reality of the teachings of the Quran and Mohammad which call for worldwide domination through Sharia law.
What is the correct balance Christians should have in our relationship with Muslims? How do we acknowledge the violent teachings in the Quran as reality, yet look at Muslims as lost people with whom we need to speak the truth in love?
The gospel must still be preached and our mission and purpose does not change from day to day. Share the truth of the gospel and, by our actions and words, point people to the Lord Jesus Christ.
We are blessed again to have Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim, with us today.
