How Muslims understand Man and Sin

For Muslims, man is the high point of God's creation. Religious activity such as ritual prayer, pilgrimages, alms giving, fasting and reciting the Muslim confession of faith are at the heart of Islamic religious experience. But for Christians, sin is not simply a matter of making mistakes, but rather of living in opposition to Godly character.

The Pain and the Sorrow

It is certain that these last five years has seen the Muslim world groaning in great pain. Wars, earthquakes, tsunamis, daily struggles with poverty, lose of family members plus an emptiness of spirit and soul are things we need to think and pray about for Muslim peoples.

How Muslims Understand God

Muslims believe that God is only one and He has no associates. Christians do not believe that Jesus is an associate of God but that He is God in the flesh (John 1:1-18). Knowing God as a Trinity is a profound thing. In the words of Francis Schaeffer: Love, communication and friendship have always been present between the Father, the Son and the Holy Spirit. The Trinity gives us an example of how to live.

More than half of the world's poor and needy are Muslims.
