Shariah Law in America?

For years, missionaries to Muslim countries have told us stories of the persecution that ensues when a follower of Allah comes to faith in Jesus Christ.

The continued persecution of Christians in Muslim lands should remain high on every prayer list. (Consider signing up at Voice of the Martyrs for a weekly update.)  But a newer development must not go unnoticed. It’s not just closer to home: it’s right here in America.

When four young Christian men were recently arrested and imprisoned in Dearborn, Michigan for witnessing to their faith at an Islamic festival, it was hailed as a victory in some Islamic circles—Sharia law has come to America.

For their part, Muslims in the West are feeling victimized as you can see in their own video.

We find ourselves in a struggle for the soul of the West. It is a battle of ideas. Followers of Jesus Christ have weapons, “not of the flesh” because we are not “waging war according to the flesh.” We have at our disposal “divine power to destroy strongholds … arguments and every lofty opinion raised against the knowledge of God.”

Jesus Christ is King of the universe. Under his banner of love, the truth can prevail. As it must.
