Muslims in the United States of America?

How would you feel if people judged you, as a Christian, when they saw you wearing a cross or carrying a Bible?  Would they dislike you because you appeared to be different?  Had they taken time to know you for yourself?  Have they linked you with other people who act like idiots (see Around Town With Ms. “V”-Qur’an)?  Have you or I, done anything wrong lately?

The old saying, “You can’t judge a book by its cover” applies to this post.  Not all Muslims, or people who dress differently from traditional Americans, are out to kill and destroy.  We have people in our church who don’t wear jean, shorts or tee shirts to church, yet we accept them for who they are.  They came to a non-denominational church to hear a Word from God.

This writer knows several people who cover their heads, or cover their bodies (wouldn’t that be a novel idea), or pray several time a day (wouldn’t it be wonderful if Christians communicated with Father God continually?).  We, as followers of Christ, should judge everyone as individuals, just as we want to be appreciated (Take a moment and read all of Matthew 7 in the Bible).  Sure we should be cautions with our surrounding, but that should be with most things.  Holy Spirit will keep us advised if we are in constant communication with Him.

If this message is offensive to you, then that’s on you; and like some political candidates - you will be held accountable for your actions and beliefs.  I may lose some associates, friends and family on social media; nonetheless, the subject needed to be addressed.  Love YA’LL!!!
