Asbury Theological Seminary President Timothy C. Tennent spoke at CCC on the topic of “Islam in a Post-911 World.”
Dr. Tennent’s March 19 talk covered the basics of the faith, including its key texts – the Qur’an and the Hadith – and the Five Pillars of Islam.
He also explained three key differences between Christianity and Islam – the nature of God; the nature, person and work of Christ; and the nature of revelation – and gave advice on how a Christian can share his or her faith with a Muslim.
The morning ended with Dr. Tennent fielding questions from the audience. Addressing the issue of Muslims coming to America, he said, “In general, immigration is a good thing for Christianity. Government’s job is to protect our borders, but we must also look at the bigger picture in finding ways to deal with this issue.”
On the topic of radical Islam and the violence carried out by its practitioners, Dr. Tennent said, “God is in control of human history … we know that God will be victorious.”
