Should Christians Fast During Ramadan With Muslims?
Islam in Action ^ | October 26Th, 2009 | Christopher Logan

Posted on 10/26/2009 12:56:41 PM PDT by Islaminaction

The answer to this question is unequivocally no! 1.When do Muslims reciprocate? 2.Under Islam, Jesus is supposed to come back and destroy the cross. How can any Christian show respect to a religion that says that?

Unfortunately some so called Christian leaders do not have the guts to face reality. Two of them are Pastor's Brian Mclaren, and Rick Warren. Pastor Terry Jones of the Dove World Outreach Center gets it.

Should Christians Fast During Ramadan With Muslims? Church leaders and observers weigh in on a current debate. Compiled by Ruth Moon 10/26/2009

I think we should eat as much pork as possible during their fasting holiday.

What about giving up all non-pork, non-shellfish, and non-alcoholic products? Is that bad too?

Not in a western country. On the contrary, they should pretend to eat so as not to offend me.

When I was working in Saudi, out of consideration for our relatively few muslim employees (including relatively few muslims with the client) we moved our break area down to another floor down a hall through an unmarked door. If you wanted to smoke or sip coffee thats where you went during that month, instead of sipping coffee at your desk or having a smoke at your desk.

As a result the breaks tended to be a little longer, we’d sit and talk and watch the world out the upper floor windows.

But in a western country, no. I’d never purposely offend a muslim colleague but I’m not going to remake my life just to please him. He knows he’s in a western country. He chose to be here, and unless he’s a jerk, he’s already accepted that. If he’s a jerk, I don’t care what he thinks anyway.

Breaking bread with followers of an antiChrist figure. Not merely an “alternate theology” but one that acknowledges the existence of Jesus and calling Him a holy man but denying His divinity, His death by crucifixion, and His resurrection all while the flock is led astray.

It’s one thing to say “I respect your right to follow whatever religion you want” and quite another to proclaim “we believe in the same God”.

Should Christians Fast during Ramadan with Muslims?

Yes, I think Christians fasting during Ramadan is a good thing, BUT NOT WITH MUSLIMS. Fasting is a way to connect with God and receive special insight into God's desires for us. It may be a sort of countermeasure to the Muslim fast. Satan runs the faith of Mohammad. Their god is not the same as the Judeo-Christian God, so the fasting is going for two dichotomies.

Thank you for that clarification...it’s still a title that is not synonymous with our Constitutional Republic, but I’m ready for a new tagline anyway.

Absolutely NOT. Should Muslims convert to Christanity during Ramadam? YES. Next question.

I already do. I generally fast between about 10:00 p.m. and about 6:30 a.m. during Ramadan. Does that count???

Um, No. This would indicate solidarity and some sort of compatibility with Christianity. There is none, it is pure insanity to try to compare or equate the 2.

No, but losing your lunch, blowing cookies, ralphing, or barfing, does.

Should Christians Fast During Ramadan With Muslims? if I were staying with a Muslim host I would show my respect by not eating in front of them. I do not eat pork in a Jewish house and would not have a beer if i was with a Mormon family.

Christians should have some respect for the price Christ paid at Calvary by refraining from participating in ANY non-Christian ceremony. Stand by politely, but don’t honor or show reverence to Jewish, Muslim, Buddhist or any other religious practice out there.

Be polite, but no real homage should be paid.

Reading this article, or portions of it, reminded me of an experience I had at the Honey Baked Ham store. It was right before Easter and I thought I’d try out their ridiculously overpriced hams.

So, I got to the counter and the lady didn’t even wish me a Happy Easter. I was a little disappointed. Who was she worried about offending? Jews do not eat pork, so they can’t be her customers. Muslims are forbidden even to be NEAR pork, so they can’t be her customers. Just pure nonsense is what it was.
