Living-Oasis

Elijah Abraham

Living Oasis Ministries

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.

There is an interesting dichotomy when we look at how two major religions–Christianity and Islam–are increasingly perceived and treated in our nation. Biblical Christianity calls on us to love all people, even those who are directly opposed to and violate God’s Word.  Islam calls for punishment and even death to “infidels,” and to classes of people such as homosexuals or those who call themselves “transgender.”

Biblical Christianity teaches that men should honor and cherish their wives; Islam teaches that wives are more like property than cherished partners.  They can be beaten, disrespected, or divorced on a whim.

So which religion should be concerning to religious freedom or feared by women and homosexuals in America?  Islam.  Yet it continues to get a pass with Democrats, feminists, the radical homosexual movement, and the media while Christianity is framed as the religion of hate and bigotry.  Which religion is being kicked out of schools and shouted down in public?  Christianity; while Islam is promoted celebrated in many public schools.

Elijah Abraham, a former Muslim and now Evangelist and apologist for Christ, joins us this morning to discuss this contradiction and hypocrisy.
