The Fine Line

I have been quite rough on the ideology that people call Islam and I prefer to call Mohammedanism. I sense a time of culture confrontation is inevitable. At the same time a Christian has to stand for Truth.

The Truth is this: Jesus Christ came to deliver a lost world from Satan's darkness to the Kingdom of God. The Good News is that Christ is the Savior of humanity. To the Jew first and then the Gentile.

Those that follow the Mohammedan ideology are also saved. They merely need the light to shine through to pierce the darkness that has gripped their spirit and soul.

It is encumbant that a Christian not to hate their enemies, that includes practicing Mohammedans. Pray for those that curse you and despitefully abuse you.

The fine line is to know when to demonstrate the Love of God and to know when to battle the enemy. Keep this in mind: the true enemy is not flesh and blood, rather it is the spiritual realm united with Satan's kingdom of darkness (Ephesians 6:12). And yet Christians are not door mats in the flesh. Turning the other cheek means not to render evil for evil and maintain an attitude of God's love. Turning the other cheek does not mean a Christian should be defenseless, when their is no defense it does mean not to retaliate.

Therein is The Fine Line.

There is a ministry to deliver Mohommedans:
Truth For Muslims Publishes Terrorism Prayer Guide

Contact: John Marion, 703-371-9548,

CENTERVILLE, Virginia, Aug. 21 /Christian Newswire/ -- Truth For Muslims, an evangelical Christian group, is publishing a prayer guide to help Christians think how to pray about terrorism and for terrorists.

The publication, called Islamic Terrorism and Muslim Terrorists: A Prayer Guide for Christians, is written by John Marion, the project director of Truth For Muslims.

"On August 9 British authorities announced they had arrested a number of terrorists who were plotting to blow up 10 aircraft", Marion recalled. "Since then", he continued, "a lot of people have been reminded of the realities of Islamic terrorism."

Marion, who lived in Afghanistan with his family during the mujahadeen wars leading up to the rise of the Taliban in the mid-1990s, wanted to share what God taught him about praying for fundamentalist Muslims."I decided it was time," Marion said, "to write something that would help Christians in America think how to pray about Islamic terrorism and for Muslim terrorists."

Marion and his wife, Michele, have been doing ministry among Muslims, including evangelism, discipleship, church planting and leadership development in America since 1982. They have spent time talking to Muslims in homes, the marketplace, and inside mosques.

In Afghanistan the Marion family huddled together in an inner room of their house during barrages of incoming rockets and dodged small arms and artillery fire in the streets. They saw people killed, and their homes destroyed. Their children slept behind sandbags.

Marion was held captive by a fundamentalist group for one night.

He even receives death threats here in America because of his efforts to tell Muslims about Christ.

Marion testifies how he and his family have experienced God's peace even though outwardly things seem difficult."We have always followed the leading of the Holy Spirit in our lives", Marion testifies. "And we've always experienced the peace of God through our Lord Jesus Christ."

"Michele and I have seen that the recent news events have shaken up some Christians", Marion says. "It's about time", he continues, "that we begin to share our experiences and tell Christians how we pray about Islamic terrorism and for Muslim terrorists."

Islamic Terrorism and Muslim Terrorists: A Prayer Guide for Christians, is printed in a brochure format. Truth For Muslims wants to distribute this prayer guide to churches across America. They need donations to pay for the distribution costs.
