The following excerpt was in my inbox this morning, felt impressed to pass it on:
Raising the call for Christians to love our Muslim neighbors.
Australia (MNN) — Two pastors in Australia are still awaiting the decision from the court of appeals. Under Victoria’s religious hatred law, Daniel Scot and Danny Nalliah were convicted of vilifying Muslims in a 2002 seminar about Islam. MNN had the opportunity to interview Pastor Daniel Scot at a recent U-S conference. Regarding the vilification case against him, Scot says, “In Australia, I may be put in jail. But I am happy to go to jail because it’s not a new thing for Christians to be sent to jail, and for the sake of Christ if I’m put in jail for telling the truth about what is in the Qur’an and Hadith and how Mohammad used to live. That’s something which I’m not ashamed of. And I will keep doing it.” For Scot, telling the truth about Islam and encouraging Christians to love Muslims is his main ministry. But he says more Christians need to answer the call. “We have very few people who are working among Muslims, so we need to pray that God will raise more people who will have a heart to reach out to Muslim people and really love and care for them. That’s very important.”
