    Time for me to learn about Islam. Just bought the book by Roland cap Ehlke . Speaking the truth in love to Muslims . I think our brother and sisters in the Ethiopian confessional Lutheran church might be using it to as a wonderful resource.

    Christ has been Crucified for the sins of the ungodly this foolish message is Gods message of love to Muslim people to. God great exchange is all about his perfectly good works given and God takes peoples ungodly evil . I can’t Waite to read the book.

    He does not look a bit Surprised. I would bet some how he found out what evil deeds were done to the Lord of Glory on a cross for us all. And expected unjust treatment because of loving Jesus.

    How many know that the Ethiopian government allows Lutherans a special exemption because of their insistence of the Augsburg confession ? And we know who that declares to be the only true God.
