What Should We Make of This?

A Fox News headline today reads, "Muslim Teen Who Converted to Christianity Says Family Threatened to Kill Her." To read the article, click here.

What should our response be to an article like this? We can do the easy thing and condemn Islam, further alienate ourselves from our Muslim neighbors, and pat ourselves on the back for not being like "them."

Or, we can say, "But for the grace of God, I too." We should humbly thank the Lord for saving us, and pray that He will do the same for all lost people (including Muslims) in our midst.

If we ever earn our salvation (which we can't), only then will we have something to be proud of.
