Free Quran coming to your doorstep?

“If you’re in your front yard, working in the flower bed or chatting with a neighbor, they’ll pass by silently to attach one of the bags they’re carrying to your front door knob and leave without speaking or engaging you in debate. Their mission? To place a copy of the Quran in every home in the United States.”  Source: WorldNet Daily

If you read the article in its entirety, you would have read that the reason ‘Book of Signs’ which is also known as the Al-Furqaan Foundation is distributing the Quran to every home is so “You can make you own judgment”.

The article goes on to say that the foundation usually receives one of three responses to the Quran being hung on ones front door.

  • 30% are appreciative
  • 30% are indifferent and request that the book be taken back.
  • Rest are often filled with expletives.

I am not really surprised with the three above mentioned response to finding a Quran hanging upon the front door knob of your home. I am a little surprised with the 30% that are appreciative although there is no mention of what spiritual affect, if any, the book has on the 30%.

If we consider the number of congregants that frequent mainline denomination, protestant churches on Sunday mornings, we must admit that there is very little evidence, if any of God’s word in terms of their daily lives. Does one think that the Quran will be any different? I guess my thoughts on this may seem a little strange, especially coming from a pastor of the Christian faith.

You see, the Muslim wants to prohibit any opportunity for the Christian faith to have free course in their society. They vehemently oppose and even persecute the word of God and those who have placed it in high esteem, in an attempt to suppress the gospel of Jesus Christ. 

Personally I have no problem with someone hanging a Quran upon my front door, because my faith is grounded in the truth of God’s word. It does not matter if it is a Book of Mormons, Literature from Jehovah Witness’ or even the ‘mighty Quran’. They have absolutely no power or influence. Very similar to what we see in those who go to church Sunday after Sunday, yet come away with a spirit that is devoid of God’s word and it has no power in their life.

I kind of liken it to what Christ told His disciples in the gospel of Matthew….    “Let them alone, the blind need leaders. If the blind lead the blind, they will both fall into the ditch”.

You see error is for no one, but the one who chose to live in error. If one wilfully rejects the word of truth and the Spirit of Truth, they must immerse themselves in some element of error. That’s the purpose of all the other material, and it is sufficient for the day. The purpose of God’s word is to shine light into the heart of darkness, those who do not chose it’s revelation must remain in darkness… It is sadly man’s choice.

Concerning the negative responses to those who contact Wajahat Sayeed, founder and director of  the foundation, concerning the receipt of the Quran…….

“It is not pleasant to hear that after all the effort you made,”

Guess one should not have trouble understanding how God will feel when He finds one has openly rejected His word and trodden under foot the precious blood of His Son….. Yeshua ha Massiach

  1. Maybe I should put a note on my door that I already have God’s Word, and do not want any false books.

  2. That was one of my points Marianne, the one that has the Word of God written in the fleshly tables of their heart is not going to feel threatened by the Quran, Book of Mormons, Jehovah Witness, etc… or any other book.

    As a believer we should be sharing the written word which is the Living Word… and that unabashedly

    “And these words, which I command thee this day, shall be in thine heart: And thou shalt teach them diligently unto thy children, and shalt talk of them when thou sittest in thine house, and when thou walkest by the way, and when thou liest down, and when thou risest up. And thou shalt bind them for a sign upon thine hand, and they shall be as frontlets between thine eyes. And thou shalt write them upon the posts of thy house, and on thy gates.” Deut 6:4-9

    If we are obedient to this exhortation in God’s Word, then rest assured, the whole of the world will both feel threatened and offended.

    Thanks for reading and commenting Marianne.
