Thinking from their Context

Part 3: Session 3

To understand context you must ask yourself the following questions surrounding any conversation you might have with a Muslim:

1.            What goes through my mind when I hear these words?

2.            What goes through their mind when I say these words?

3.            How much of a difference is there between the two?

  • Have you got a girlfriend or a boyfriend?
  • Jesus is the Son of God.
  • The Bible says…
  • You must believe on the name of Jesus to be saved.
  • God loves you.
  • All men are sinners.

The following questions are to assist us in evaluating the forms we use for the purpose of best communicating the meaning we hope to teach.

  • Who is God?
  • What is creation?
  • What is sin?
  • How are people saved?
  • What is acceptable behavior?
  • What is worship? What should the church look like?
  • How do I become an insider in their culture?
