Not all Muslims want to kill you

Thank you for the profound article by Christopher Alam, “Not All Muslims Want to Kill You” (September). It gives a history of the Muslim background, but not as the media presents this situation. This article was God’s truth, explaining how we as Christians can reach Muslims with God’s love. Hopefully it took the fear out of our way of thinking about Muslims.

Thank you for the two great articles “When Muslims See Jesus” (by Audrey Lee) and “Not All Muslims Want to Kill You” (by Christopher Alam). I celebrate the definitive insights and instructions for the body of Christ that Alam offered concerning Muslims. This sounds like Jesus to me: “We Christians should have no enemies because our DNA is one of faith and love, not fear and hatred. We must not forget we have received commandments to bless those who curse us, to overcome evil with good.”

Too much Faith in fiction?

Carol Johnson’s article “Saving Stories” (September) on the impact of fiction suggests popularity equals influence. But if Christian fiction is to impact the world, it must grow in the area where it is still weak: craftsmanship. Jonathan Livingston Seagull and The Bridges of Madison County, both hugely popular but now largely forgotten, are probably better templates for contemporary Christian fiction than a classic like To Kill a Mockingbird.

A dilemma over our ‘gay dilemma’

This is in response to Julia Randle’s letter (September), questioning why the magazine published articles on homosexuality (“The Church’s Gay Dilemma,” July). If “Christians should not be involved,” then how is the church supposed to handle this issue? What do we do if “they” come into our congregations? 

Ms. Randle, what will you do if “it” shows up in your family? Jesus said to let he who is without sin cast the first stone. It’s time for the church to lay down their stones and take on the compassion of Jesus. Thank you, Charisma, for printing articles that help the body of Christ learn more about these controversial issues.
