Das war die Aufgabe an verschiedene Pastoren:
We asked a roundtable of pastors and theologians two questions:
- You are standing on stage before 100,000 people from every nation on earth and asked to share the gospel in 100 words or less. What would you say
- You are standing before a small crowd from your church’s neighborhood and asked to share the gospel in 100 words or less. What would you say? [Authors were asked to include a couple of words describing their neighborhood. We have included these in italics when provided.]
Und diese Geschichte teilt einer der Befragten mit Muslimen:
Two men went to the mosque to pray. One was a rich man, the other a poor man. The rich man went through his libations and prayers as he did five times a day. As he was praying, he began to have a sexual fantasy about the young wife who lived next door to his home. But he finished his prayers and went home. The poor man stood off at a distance. He came so infrequently to the mosque, that he couldn’t remember the positions for prayer or his libations. But he looked up to heaven, beat his breast, and said, “Forgive me, O Lord, for I’m a sinner.” Who went home justified? Mr Stiles says that every Muslim he has asked this question has answered “The rich man.”
Danke, Justin Taylor, für den Link.
