Because the church has failed to go into the Muslim world, God has brought the greatest mission field to us. He wants them to hear the Good News, but few Christians are equipped with the tools they need. This is why Radical Truth exists.
Many Christians have an irrational fear of talking with Muslims, usually due to being uninformed about Islam. Many people know nothing about Islamic beliefs and practices, what the Qur'an is and why Muslims hold it in high esteem, who Muhammad was and what Muslims say about him, what questions we might be faced with and how to respond. Due to this lack of knowledge, many people remain silent when they need to be sharing the good news of Jesus with Muslims. We at Radical Truth believe that providing some education about Islam, much of the fear that keeps people silent can be overcome, and they can then approach Muslims with confidence and boldness, sure in their faith, and equipped to persuade Muslims to realize the deception of Islam and the truth of Christianity.
Islam is the greatest challenge to the church in today's world. Islam is growing at an alarming rate through dawah (Islamic equivalent of Christian evangelism), immigration, and birth rate. At its core, Islam challenges every tenet of the Christian faith. It seeks to discredit and destroy every other religious worldview. Islam promotes itself as the perfect religion revealed to mankind through the 'perfect man and perfect Muslim,' Muhammad, who brought 'true and correct guidance for mankind' found only in the Qur'an.
The driving force behind Islam is a battle for the hearts, minds, and souls of men, women, and children around the world. This is not a physical battle but a spiritual one, waged centuries ago when Lucifer sought to overthrow YHWH (Isaiah 14:12-17) and it continues today. The battle is one between two competing truth claims: the Truth of Christianity found in the Bible against the lies of Satan found in the Qur'an, masquerading as 'truth.' Islam is the greatest deception ever given to humankind, deceiving men and women into a false sense of eternal security through self-righteousness, leading them into a Christ-less eternity.
As Christians, we are commanded to be "casting down arguments and every high thing that exalts itself against the knowledge of God, bringing every thought into captivity to the obedience of Christ" (2 Cor. 10:4-5). It is our desire to be used by God to help equip the church to meet the challenge of Islam and to be instruments to remove the blinders from those deceived by Islam, and open their eyes to the gospel Truth of the Lord Jesus Christ.
Radical Islam requires radical Christians equipped with Radical Truth: the life changing Truth of Jesus Christ and how to bring this message to the Muslim world.
