After the attacks of 9/11, many people in the West, including Christians, were asking, Where are the moderate Muslims?
They may have showed up last fall. A group of what appeared to be moderate Muslim leaders sent a conciliatory message to representatives of the Catholic, Eastern Orthodox and Protestant faiths, offering to work toward a more peaceful coexistence between the worlds two largest religions.
How should Christians in the West respond to this offer?
A basis for peace? Issued October 13, 2007, and titled A Common Word Between Us and You, the Muslim document stressed the need for peace between members of the Christian and Islamic faiths, since the two groups represent 55% of the worlds population.
A Common Word highlighted the common sentiments of the Quran and the New Testament, where man is commanded to love God and love ones neighbor: The basis for this peace and understanding already exists. It is part of the very foundational principles of both faiths: love of the One God, and love of the neighbor. These principles are found over and over again in the sacred texts of Islam and Christianity.
The 138 signatories of the document impressed numerous Christian leaders, since these Muslim leaders represented virtually the entire religious landscape within the Islamic world.
More than 300 Christian leaders and theologians soon penned a response to the Muslim letter.Evangelical heavyweights like Richard Cizik, Bill Hybels, Brian McLaren, John Stott, Jim Wallis and Rick Warren added their names to that response, titled Loving God and Neighbor Together: A Christian Response to A Common Word Between Us and You.

Yep. The looney let-us-all-hold-hands-and-sing-kumbaya crowd
is at it again.
Christian - How may we co-exist?
You-Know-What - Infidel! Put Head Here.
How to respond??????? A shot across the bow and then a big one midship if you get my drift.
“How should Christians in the West respond to this offer?”
With a hearty no thanks, but we’ll pray for your soul.
>Notice the list of Judas goats? America’s Pastor Rick Warren, Billy Hybels?<
Fakes! Every last one of ‘em! More bad fruit!
“HOW SHOULD THE CHRISTIAN WEST RESPOND TO MODERATE MUSLIMS OFFER OF DIALOGUE?”
To answer that question, I would have to say that we should entertain thoughts of responding for a period of not in excess of five seconds.....to take place at once.
“Dialog about WHAT?”
How we should be okay with them cutting off our heads silly!
With 5.56...at 3100 fps.
With a cannon shot.
We’re fools if we don’t take this chance. Moderate Muslims need to be engaged. The radical murderer Muslims certainly don’t want this.
The nutcases are making a play for control of the Muslim world. Regular, reasonable Muslims need to be legitimized, much like what we’re accomplishing in Iraq by setting up a decent government.
In a spiritual dimension, the American church has spent way too many decades pretending that Islam doesn’t exist. Most of us have no idea how to witness to a Muslim, or what it takes to lead one to the Lord. It’s about time someone took some steps in that direction.
How should they respond to moderate muslims...no need to worry because there aren’t any.
must be the dialogue where they say” We have nothing to do with radical Islam,but we want sharia law,treated special and did we mention,taking over your civilization!
The dialogue needed to be between the moderate muslims and the RADICAL muslims!
