Thinking ‘Christianly’ About Muslims

If a Muslim walked in your door you'd know it, right? You'd know basically what he believes, where he comes from and what he thinks of you, right?

Let's stop right there. Consider the possibility - however remote - that you might just have some preconceptions about this person. Perhaps even a mistaken impression or two. OK - are we on the same page, now? We'll leave it to Norm and his guest, Warren Larsen to take it from here.

Sharing Christ with Muslims, Pt. 2

Yesterday, we reintroduced our Compassion Radio Family to some very good friends, Mike and Samya Johnson from Call of Love Ministries. Today we pick up on the previous conversation about how to really reach out to Muslims in the name of Jesus. It's so much simpler and riskier than we thought!

Sharing Christ with Muslims Pt. 1

Is it really possible to win Muslims to Christ? Not really. Then again, we don't ever 'win people to Christ.' The Holy Spirit does that. But that doesn't mean we're off the hook. There's also something about a little passage called the 'Great Commission' that contains a few items we probably should consider...

How does it all fit together? Does God really want to save Muslims? What's his plan? Where do we start? Ah, now we're getting somewhere. Today we begin a two-part series on what it's going to take to reach this generation of Muslims from all over the world. Hint, it starts with "Hello..."

What Are We Going To Do?? (About Islam’s Amazing Growth)

ISIS on the march, and Islam on the rise - can it be stopped? Not if we don't start doing something different! Anyone who thinks reaching the world for Christ is impossible in the light of the current surge of Islam hasn't been reading their bibles - at least not very thoroughly. It was a whole lot more "impossible" when it was only 12 men and a few hundred helpers. It took them a while, for sure. But no faith in history has gained so many adherents, in so many places, other than Christianity.

So, what do we do about all those Muslims? Glad you asked... Jim and Norm discuss it, today.

An Algerian Disciple

When you think the Muslim world, what comes to mind? The Middle East? Central Asia? What about Africa? Algeria is at the heart of African Islam. It's also the heart of a growing Christian community. With the world rapidly entering a new era of opportunity and peril, it's important for us to know where the news frontlines are.

What is God Doing for the World’s Refugees?

Enoch Wan, our good friend, is up to his armpits in crises and challenges. And he wouldn't have it any other way! So how do you know what God is up to in a hurting world? You chase down His people doing great work in seemingly impossible situations...

The Jesus Manifesto

Sometimes the things you see as obvious and true are radical ideas to others.  Norm's guest today, Leonard Sweet, knows that full-well. And sometimes the things that have always been true have to be proclaimed anew to a generation who hasn't discovered it.

Finish the Mission!

It began with efforts of individual men transcribing the Bible by candle light.  The Chinese symbols were multitude, unfamiliar and extremely difficult to master.  Never could those hard-laboring linguists imagine the fruit of their sacrifice - namely the largest body of Christian disciples the world has ever known.

So, how does Compassion Radio fit in? Well, of the 100 million+ current believers in modern-day China, over 2 million of them are directly the result of bibles you have given! Are you ready to reach the next 2 million? Jim Governale joins Norm in studio to discuss how it can happen.

Launching Year #72!

We're well into our 8th decade and going strong! So - what does God have in store for our 72nd year? Jim and Norm explore the 'shape of things to come' today!

Who’s On Trial, Here?

Was it a legal hatchet-job? A tragedy of cosmic proportions? Or something else, altogether?  The trial of Jesus for sedition stands out in history as a seemingly unexplainable injustice. But that's really not the message God intended. What He did intend, and accomplished, goes far beyond our wildest expectations. Today Norm takes a very different look at the story.

Assyrian Christians’ Suffering, Pt. 2

Norm concludes a powerful interview with Juliana Taimoorazy of Iraqi Christian Relief Council. She and her network of activists are testifying to the trials of modern-day martyrs - the Assyrian Christian Community of Iraq and Syria.

00:0000:00

Assyrian Christians’ Suffering, Pt. 1

Juliana Taimoorazy is a bridge-builder; a hope-giver; a truth-teller. She's also a witness to some horrible things. Be very thankful for that. As a Jeremiah to this generation, she's bringing the plight of Middle Eastern Christians to stark relief. We'd better pay attention before God makes us...


Juliana joins Norm in another seminal road interview, from Nashville, TN.

The Latest From India, Pt. 2

Bram and Cher finish their 'tour of India' with the latest on how your support of our 'Barefoot Pastors Project' is impacting the world's most populous and unreached, nation.

00:0000:00

The Latest From India, Pt. 1

Bram and Cher report on the latest praise reports and prayer requests from the frontlines of this month's Compassion Radio focus country - India.

India, Heart to Heart

There's an oasis of love and learning in the heart of India - many actually. And they are the centers of India Gospel League's amazing outreach to the orphans of that country. They're saving children, building minds and changing hearts. Norm starts this tour of India with the Rev. Sam Stephens today.

The Cloud of Flawed Witnesses

If the Kingdom of God depended on perfect people to get the job done, there wouldn't be a Kingdom. Thankfully, God's plan was - and is - to make people perfectly suited to the work of building His Kingdom. Who, then? And How? Well, that's where Norm and Jim dive in, today.

Eastern Spirituality Gives No Answer

Michael Austin followed a path designed to 'kill the mind.' He almost succeeded. But then God... well, He had other plans. Now Michael is on a whole new journey and he's bringing others along with him.

Victory Over Abuse, Pt 2

Yesterday began the moving story of Isik Abla, a beautiful young woman who never knew it until God reached out to her in miraculous fashion. Today, she inspires muslims and westerners, men and women alike to reach out to the SAVIOR who radically transformed her life. And whe won't stop until the whole muslim world has had a good long drink from this 'living well.'

00:0000:00

Victory Over Abuse, Pt. 1

Behind the veil of traditional Islam, the victims of domestic abuse aren't even statistics. Their pain can remain hidden and unknown for a lifetime. In the case of Isik Abla, God had a different plan, and it's beginning to have a profound impact on the millions of unsung victims around the world. And it's building the Kingdom of God in the very heart of the secret muslim world most of us will never experience.

Gospel Heritage in India
