Shaky Edifice

Friday, April 21, 2017

In reality, the Quran is a jumble of mismatched incidents of history, contradicting teachings and haphazard information. Muslims are not allowed to ask questions that express doubt or incredulity about their religion. Severe punishment is meted out to those who dare challenge their creed. In the past, this put terror in the hearts of thinkers. But not today. There is a ripple of dissatisfaction in today’s generation that lives in a global village and uses computers, cell phones and the internet! Because of technological connectedness, the notion that Muslims are not supposed to ask questions does not play well among the educated of the 21st century. Many of them refuse to parrot their forefathers.

The very foundations of Islam are shaking (see Matthew 7:24-27; Luke 6: 47-49)!

Prayer

All-wise and gracious Lord and God, our Father and Redeemer, we thank you for your love and sacrifice at Calvary.

We sense you want to tell Muslims, “The visions of your prophets were false and worthless; they did not expose your sin to ward off your captivity. The oracles they gave you were false and misleading” (Lamentations 2:14). It is true, Muslims have listened to false, worthless and misleading visions. And now they are in a miserable captivity. That is why we are approaching your throne of grace today. Have mercy on them. Lead them to repent and put their faith in Jesus Christ, the only Savior from sin, the only One who said, “I am the way, the truth and the life” (John 14:6).

I pray that you will rescue them from the dominion of darkness and bring them into the Kingdom of your beloved Son (Colossians 1:13).

Promise

Come to me, all of you who are weary and carry heavy burdens, and I will give you rest (Matthew 11:28, NLT).
