Christian and Islamic Thinking Compared and Contrasted

  72 views

Operation Reveille, a ministry of Act Beyond that helps Military Christians understand the character, knowledge, and behavior of Jesus Christ in cross-cultural contexts, features 6 posts on the "Social Implications of Different Christian and Muslim Beliefs." The helpful summary chart is found here

The chart is then broken down into the following areas:

  1. What do Muslims and Christians Believe Differently About Divine Revelation?
  2. What do Muslims and Christians believe differently about God?
  3. What do Muslims and Christians believe differently about Man?
  4. What do Muslims and Christians believe differently about nature?
  5. What do Muslims and Christians Believe Differently about Salvation?
  6. What Do Muslims and Christians Believe Differently About the Future?

Although the above posts are more than two years old, the author has obviously done his homework. A more recent post, entitled "Three Reactions to Terrorism and 'Islamic State' Resurgence" is also noteworthy. In this post, "Bruce" examines 3 common responses to ISIS, namely: 

  1. Flight (& Freeze) – “Islam and Muslims are both good”
  2. Fight  – “Islam and Muslims are both bad”
  3. Spiritual Engagement  – “Islam is bad but not Muslims”

He suggests that the other option is neither a flight nor fight response, but a third way. That post is here
