Are Christians betraying the Great Commission?
The world is facing a religious revolution. Within the century, if current trends continue, Islam, already the fastest growing religion, will outpace Christianity to become the largest faith in the world.
In Europe, once called “Christendom,” Christianity has all but collapsed as Islam continues to gain ground. And Islamic terrorism continues to reap a bloody harvest on every continent, with the ISIS flag even flying in parts of the Philippines. Even under a government committed to confronting Islamic terrorism, many Christians are forced to hide their faith to survive.
Joel Richardson, the New York Times bestselling author of “The Islamic Antichrist” and the new book “Mystery Babylon,” argues Islam is the greatest single spiritual threat facing the contemporary church. He slams contemporary Christians for not being aggressive enough in witnessing to Muslims.
“Islam is presently the greatest challenge the church is facing, and will continue to be so in the days ahead,” he said. “The problem, of course, is not in Islam’s strength so much as it is in the weakness and apathy of the church. While many Muslims are well trained to reach and evangelize Christians, most Christians are not equipped or even willing to evangelize Muslims. This is a travesty in so many ways.
“The message, the way of life, the sacred book, and most importantly, the God of Christianity, is so superior to what we find in Islam. Christians are stewards of the very words of life, of the only message that can save the souls of mankind, yet we seem to consistently hide it under a bushel, so to speak. When the church rediscovers the fire of the early church, their evangelistic zeal, their passion for Christ’s return, then we will see this Goliath stumble, but not until then.”
