Last week I asked what you thought was the greatest challenge facing Worldwide Christianity in the next fifty years. I found it interesting that nearly all the responses were related in some way to Islam. Here is a portion of my response as given to the original question posed by my professor.
“I believe the greatest challenge facing the global body of Christ is the advance of Islam and our response to it. While many Christians are quick to note the physical threat of this religious advance, few of us are preparing to respond to it from an apologetic perspective. The sword cannot be our only response, because it is the least effective. The church must strategically mobilize to respond with the sword of truth, or we are in the same danger our forefathers faced in the Middle Ages.”
What do you think? Agree? Disagree? How do we best prepare to respond to Islamic advance?
