Hannah Wharton 150 words to response to classmate post Posted Date: December 4, 2014 2:48 PM Status: Published Loving and Sharing the gospel with Muslims: 1) What practical steps could be taken to build a relationship with a follower of this worldview who might be a co-worker, neighbor, etc.? One of the first steps I beleive to be the most important in building a relationship with a follower of another worldview is love. We must accept and realize that other people do not always share our same view, ideas and beleifs. Despite this fact we are called by Christ to love and show compassion to all who we come accross.

In an online post by Dr.Steven Masood (a Chrstian with a Muslim backround), he makes a wonderful point: it isn’t the muslims as a people who are the problem, it is the idealogy they follow. He goes on to state ” Muslims are prisoners of it bound by Satan” (Masood, 2014). Secondly, I think it is important to pray for those we will come in contact with. Paul makes it clear that it is not us, but the hold spirit that convicts the minds and hearts of others and wins them over for Jesus (Romans 10:1). When building a relationship with others I think it is important to take into consideration their culture. By doing so we can build trust, and then create oportunities to share Christ. For instance, there are rules regarding the opposite sex. Unless related or married, men communicate with men and women with women (Masood, 2014). As chrisitans we beleive that sharing the gospel can happen anywhere with anyone in the correct situation, but it is important to respect these things in order to build trust. Building trust creates healthy relationships. Folowing certain cultural rules, that do not conflict our faith is a great way…
