Del Rey Bible Institute (DRBI): Fall 2019
DEL REY BIBLE INSTITUTE:
WEDNESDAYS 7:00 to 8:30 PM
Sept. 4 - Dec. 11
Since 9/11, the number of mosques in the United States has doubled. There are now more Muslims in the U.S. than there are Methodists. Los Angeles has the second-largest Muslim population in our country. Since Christians must understand the world around them in order to effectively be a witness, then we must also seek to understand the Muslim faith.
But what is Islam? What does it teach? What attracts people to Islam? Is Islam simply another version or flavor of the other two monotheistic faiths, Judaism and Christianity? How do we answer the arguments against Christian beliefs raised by Islam? How can we reach Muslims with the Gospel message? How can I move beyond the fear of talking with a Muslim? What do Muslims actually believe?
With so much diversity in the Muslim world, it is common for people to hold uninformed opinions about Islam.
In Exploring Islam, we will follow Dr. James Anderson from Ligonier Ministries to prepare ourselves to better witness to our Muslim neighbors with gentleness and respect. We will survey the central tenets, history, and practices of the Islamic religion. Additionally, we will examine apologetic strategies to equip students to engage Muslims. This is a series to stir confidence in the gospel and equip you to speak the truth in love to the Muslims in your community.
Come ready to grow in your own knowledge of the Bible, in your passion for Christ, and in compassion for the Muslim community here in our city and those around the world.
