Hey guys. This post is related to the topic I raised in the "Trauma" section, but I want to let this section of it remain separate. I've found that many of my Muslim friends react emotionally to the topic of Jesus wanting to extend forgiveness to ALL PEOPLE, for ALL SINS, because they associate this with evil done to them. More specifically, they believe that a holy God would draw a more firm line in the sand: "THIS" violation or betrayal can't be forgiven. I think that as believers, we often fail to understand the emotion in that response. Why the "Good news" can sound like a mockery of justice. I love Fouad's book "The Adha in the Injeel" for how it stresses the importance of talking about all the qualities of God that came together in the cross. His holiness, his justice, his love, his mercy, his power and authority. Some questions today... How has that book impacted your ability to share the Gospel? Do you feel that you ever rush or minimize talking about the other characteristics of God (for the sake of talking about his love?) How do you (personally) depict his Love as GOOD when someone shrinks back, or receives the Gospel as a painful message?
