The Christian response to Muslims should be twofold. Firstly, we must separate ourselves from Islam and clearly state that it is a false religion. 'Whoever transgresses and does not abide in the doctrine of Christ does not have God. He who abides in the doctrine of Christ has both the Father and the Son.
If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into your house nor greet him; for he who greets him shares in his evil deeds' (2 John 9-11).
Christians do not have any ecumenical relationship with Muslims. We cannot participate in their idolatry by saying that we worship the same God. On the contrary, we must warn them that since they do not abide in the doctrine of Christ, they do not have God.
Secondly, we have an evangelistic responsibility towards Muslims. They have been indoctrinated against the Son of God.
We must proclaim Jesus, the Son of God, the Lord from Heaven, the Saviour of the World.
We must proclaim that he died for our sins according to the Scriptures, that he was buried, and that he rose again the third day according to the Scriptures.
This is our message to Muslims, and to the rest of the world, 'He who believes in the Son has everlasting life; and he who does not believe the Son shall not see life, but the wrath of God abides on him' (John 3:36).
2 Corinthians 6 :14-16 :" Be ye not uneqally yoked together with unbelievers:for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness?and what communion hath light with darkness?And what concord hath Christ with Belial?or what part hath he that believed with an infidel?And what agreement hath the Temple of God with idols?for ye are the temple of the Living God;as God hath said:, I WILL DWELL IN THEM ,AND WALK IN THEM;AND I WILL BE THEIR GOD,AND THEY SHALL BE MY PEOPLE."
The one who does not know ,accept or walks away from Christ,the Light of this world lives on the " earth void and without form" and having no certainity and assurance of salvation,having rejected the Saviour condemns himself to "the darkness on face of the deep"

@SBpfu:To clarify :The One True God had revealed Himself to the Israelites,speaking through and communicating with Jewish prophets (i.e. Burning Bush,Ten Commandments)and led the chosen (by the virtue that living among pagans given to idolatry they acknowledged the True God),His Presence always abiding with them (the Pillar of Clouds,being really present in Holy of Holies around which the whole Tabernacle was built) and in the Psalms - but they failed to know Him,the essence of God Allmighty … [More]
Why is there a link to an anti-Catholic site on gloriatv? The article excerpt sounds innocuous, but the rest of it (lower down) is anti-Rome. It is, in fact, a purely anti-Catholic "convert the papists" type website, on the home page.
Matthew Chapter 5 ----17"Do not think that I have come to do away with the Law of Moses and the teachings of the prophets. I have not come to do away with them, but to make their teachings come true.18Remember that as long as heaven and earth last, not the least point nor the smallest detail of the Law will be done away with - not until the end of all things.19So then, whoever disobeys even the least important of the commandments and teaches others to do the same, will be least in the Kingdom …[More]
The abomination, which the Church has had from the very beginning for association of Catholics in the worship of Non Catholics , is evident from the words of St. John "If anyone comes to you and does not bring this doctrine, do not receive him into the house, or say to him Welcome" - II John 1:10
