I am currently enrolled in the course on Islam. I had my first interview a few weeks ago with a woman who adheres to that faith. As a result I was invited to an Iftar (evening meal to break the daily fast) since the month of Ramadan is being observed until this Wednesday.
I decided to go until I found out the location of the Iftar. I brought up
the subject with 2 people and explained my reservations. Both encouraged me to attend to make acquaintances and said I really could not say for certain what would transpire. So I went.
I did get to meet several women but nothing further has come about as a result of those introductions. I heard about the Qur’an with many verses put up on screen, the ‘Five Pillars of Islam’, Muslim worship prayer in Arabic, and a few other things.
What is my issue? It was in church. Not my church, but a church of a well known denomination. A denomination whose name would be associated, even by outsiders, as being a Christian church. And that was only one event. I found out they had many such nightly events at other churches around the city.
I had just heard the gospel according to Islam in the house of the One true and only God. First and ll Kings anyone? Jeremiah?
Please tell me what you think. Even if it has to do with my shortsightedness. I am still troubled by the whole thing.
