A Religion of War or Peace?
Virtually every Muslim in the world says "hello" with "Salam alukum" which literally means "peace on you." With 1.2 billion Muslims greeting each other, it means that from 5-10 billion times a day, Muslims greet people with a greeting that peace may rest on them. But...

Understanding and Responding to Islam in the Light of September 11
In this study, we will be seeking to better understand Islam, Afghanistan and Osama bin Laden and some of the reasons why the terrorist attacks of September 11, 2001 took place. What is the root of terrorism? Does Islam teach peace, or does it teach Jihad? What are some of the potential issues facing Christians, what are some of the responses we can make, and what are resources to help us? Most importantly, what are some of the key biblical foundations we need to keep in focus during this time of turmoil and change?
Let us remember that every Muslim in the world is made in the image of God and should have the right to enjoy Christ's love and be able to hear the good news of Jesus Christ. May we not treat our Muslim neighbors with fear, but with love.
