Muslim Missions — A great task with many hindrances — part 1

When I think about a great task, I think about the great commission. I believe that we have the man power and the money power to get the job done.  The problem is that we have yet to turn loose of what we have and of our lives.

I also think about the great task of spreading the Gospel to Muslims.  Islam has 1.57 billion adherents, making up 23% of the world population.  While they are close to ¼ of the world’s population only about one percent of missions efforts are directed towards them.  This means that there is about one Christian missionary for every one million Muslims.

Samuel Zwemer stated, “One might suppose that the church thought the Great Commission did not apply to Muslims.
