I recently joined with a faithful Christian brother, who visits the local Mosque here almost every week to talk to the Muslims who attend. They were very gracious to us, and we ate dinner with probably 100 of them who were having a weekly potluck (Yum...Middle Eastern Food). My buddy (Steve), brought his Bible with him, and also had a Quran. It was great to be able to discuss what the Bible had to say about different issues, and all the men at our table listened to what we had to say.
One of the topics that came up was whether things were getting better in the world or not. The Muslims thought things were definitely getting better, as we do not have a major world war going on right now. We discussed how the Bible describes the "Last Days", and how things are definitely not getting better.
These last days are described in 2 Timothy 3:1-5. "But understand this, that in the last days there will come times of difficulty. For people will be lovers of self, lovers of money, proud, arrogant, abusive, disobedient to their parents, ungrateful, unholy, heartless, unappeasable, slanderous, without self-control, brutal, not loving good, treacherous, reckless, swollen with conceit, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God. Having the appearance of Godliness, but denying its power". Sounds pretty familiar, doesn't it?
Pray for our outreach to these people. They are very gracious and I appreciate them allowing us to meet with them and discuss the Bible. My prayer for them is that they would reject their works based religion and trust in Christ, who is the only way to be saved. Jesus said... "If you do not believe that I AM, you will die in your sins"(John 8:24).
