...we should not take out anger on refugees. The immigrants streaming across Europe are trying to escape the radical Islamists, they are not the enemy. This incident certainly reminds us of the importance of security in this immigration crisis, and terrorists may very well try to infiltrate such refugees. But almost all of these people are just trying to live and protect their families-- as you and I would do. If we start placing blame, and drawing quick conclusions from that, then we are saying that innocent people should have been denied protection. This is not ok. The gospel frees us to first-- and always-- be people of compassion.
...we should not call for a war with Islam. I've written extensively that I do not think that interfaith cooperation is helpful, but multi-faith understanding can be. I do not believe that Muslims and Christians pray to the same God and, as such, I believe that ALL people need Jesus, including Muslims, Hindus, and atheists. That's part of what makes us evangelicals.
I want to see Muslims come to Christ (as, yes, they want to win me to Islam). And, we can't do that by going to war with a billion people.
And it is worth saying again-- the vast majority of Muslims are not terrorists.
