A Common Word

A Common Word

Presented here is a Biblical Christian response to "A Common Word Between Us And You" ("A Common Word") as well as a recent update. A Common Word was originally issued by 138 Muslim clerics to Christians and our original response to A Common Word was co-signed by some of the Christian visitors to our website, including leaders from many denominations, some of whom have commented as below. Christians are welcome to read our update and join the list of co-signatories at the bottom of our response to A Common Word.

"A truly Christian response to 'A Common Word Between Us and You'"
Pastor Keith Doster, Grace Fellowship Church, Pine Grove Mills, Pennsylvania, USA

"We must get this to all Christians everywhere. We must continue to proclaim the message of Jesus Christ as God's Only Son, regardless of the cost. We must continue to proclaim as Jesus said, "I am the way, the truth, and the life; no man cometh unto the Father, but by Me" (John 14:6). I pray we can get this out to all."
Pastor J. Harold Davis, Immanuel Baptist Church, Bowling Green, Florida, USA


"An excellent response to the letter issued by 138 Muslim clerics. We wholeheartedly support the response as being a scriptural and Godly response that clearly speaks to the theological differences we have with Islam."
Jim & Pam Blande, Katy, Texas, USA
Excerpt:

To express our mutual sincerity and to take a concrete step forward, we propose the following joint declaration:

1. We respect Muslims' freedom to gather in peace and safety to worship Allah, including the freedom to build mosques, in both Muslim and Christian areas. Likewise, we respect Christians' freedom to gather in peace and safety to worship the God of the Bible, including the freedom to build churches, in both Christian and Muslim areas.

2. We respect Muslims' freedom to print, import and distribute the Qur'an to Christians, and Christians' freedom to access and read the Qur'an. Likewise, we respect Christians' freedom to print, import and distribute Bibles to Muslims, and Muslims' freedom to access and read the Bible.

3. We respect Christians' freedom to convert to Islam, and we respect Muslims' freedom to convert to Christianity.
