Witnessing to a Muslim

I heard someone in a prison ministry say that when he was talking with a Muslim prisoner he said, “Isn’t it interesting that our God tells us to love our enemies and your god tells you to kill yours.”  He had a great opening to reach out with the truth.  How do you witness to Muslims?

Whether they’re Black Muslims in the Nation of Islam (Joseph Farrakhan’s group) or Middle Eastern Muslims, I talk about the Koran (I know it better than most of them do by the way) and Jesus.  I point out that their book calls Jesus perfect and it also says that Mohammed is not perfect.

So whether we agree on who Jesus is, at least Jesus in your book is perfect; and our books says he’s perfect.

2 Corinthians 5:21
For he hath made him to be sin for us, who knew no sin; that we might be made the righteousness of God in him.

Hebrews 5:9
And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him;

1 Peter 1:19
But with the precious blood of Christ, as of a lamb without blemish and without spot:

We agree on that.  So then why wouldn’t you trust someone who is perfect?  They make a big deal about Mohammed, but Mohammed himself lays out some of his imperfections.

Muslims are very religious.  They like to talk about that stuff.  In the conversation just deal with Jesus.  That’s all I do.  Jesus is the issue.  They hold him in high respect.  They just think he’s a great prophet – not God – but a step below Mohammed.  You don’t even have to know the Koran.  Just talk to them about Jesus and that he’s perfect and you’ll get to them. 

Hopefully this helps!
