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.
On 9/11/2001, radical Islamic terrorists hijacked four jet planes with the intent of dealing a devastating blow to our nation. More than 3,000 people died and our nation was changed in a profound way. This Sunday marks the fifteenth anniversary of this horrendous tragedy.
At that time, most Americans knew little about Islamic terrorism and nothing about the religion of Islam. They were told it was a “religion of peace.” So what have we learned and how has it helped or changed us? Most Muslims do not follow the teachings and example of Muhammad and jihad however, millions do. This does not change the fact our mission is to meet people’s spiritual need first and preach the good news of Jesus Christ.
Joining us to discuss Islam, the Quran, and how Christians should respond to the very real threat of Muslim terrorism is a former Muslim, now born-again believer, Elijah Abraham. Elijah travels around the world teaching pastors about Islam and how to share the gospel with the Muslim people.
“Hear, O Israel! The Lord is our God, the Lord is one! 5 You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your might. 6 These words, which I am commanding you today, shall be on your heart. Deuteronomy 6:4-6
but sanctify Christ as Lord in your hearts, always being ready to make a defense to everyone who asks you to give an account for the hope that is in you, yet with gentleness and reverence; 1 Peter 3:15
Do not fear those who kill the body but are unable to kill the soul; but rather fear Him who is able to destroy both soul and body in hell. Matthew 10:28
