Dear Muslim friend

I think of all the blogs here, yours is the one with the most humility. It recognises the deep confusion and mistrust built by over a thousand years of miscommunication. I have indeed had both positive and negative experiences of Islam, not only through the media but through personal contact with Muslims. As a Christian (Catholic) myself, I have also had positive and negative experiences of Christians.

At the core of every person though is a human heart created by God, which can radiate his light or shut it out. Your right. The time to cease the talk of hatred is now. Instead it is time to forgive each other of our past sins and misconceptions and pray for each other and ourselved that God will forgive us for being foolish and destroying each other. Life can get so complicated. Our beliefs in God is tied up deeply with our identity, meaning that our pride and ignorance (the trademarks of Satan) can get in the way of us surrendering ourselves to Gods peaceful will. The Christians mission is to love and know God. The Muslims is to submission. In essence they are both a call for us to recognise our creator.

God bless you mate. People like you will save our ignorant fellow people. keep it up.
Richard
