    ChristianVisitor got a reaction from Ashvazdanghe in Relations between muslims and evangelicals   
    Just to clarify, the term "evangelical" is a broad term and is not restricted to a particular sect or denomination within Christianity. It is anyone who believes in the doctrines of the Protestant Reformation and believe that the gospel of Jesus Christ must be preached to all nations for the forgiveness of sins and salvation of souls. One can be an Anglican, Presbyterian, Baptist, Methodist, Lutheran, Pentecostal, a non-denominational, etc. and be evangelical. Even some Roman Catholics and Eastern Orthodox Christians label themselves as "evangelical" even though the term is normally restricted to Protestant Christians.
    What is described by some of our Muslim friends above are not evangelical Christians but fundamentalist Christians. Those two are very different things even though they can overlap at times. Fundies tend to be focused a lot on eschatology (especially espousing the rapture of the church and imminent coming of Jesus Christ to Earth), legalism in ethics, being pro-Israel in the Middle East conflicts, being ultra-conservative in politics, etc. I think we need to clarify some terms before some people start making unwarranted judgments about this issue.

    ChristianVisitor got a reaction from Ashvazdanghe in I believe in the Trinity, am I a Mushrikeen?   
    Okay, I didn't want this thread to turn into a theological debate about the deity of Christ. I just wanted to know how a Trinitarian Christian like me (who willingly and knowingly accepts the doctrine of the Trinity) will be treated under a Shia rulership. Will I still be treated with full respect and dignity as a human being as long as I don't do anything criminal or disturb the peace?

    How would I be treated then under an Islamic caliphate or rulership? Even if I mind my own business, live peaceably, don't do criminal acts, etc. would I still be treated like a pagan if I refuse to convert to a non-Trinitarian belief in God? What if I remain steadfast in my beliefs, how will I be treated even if I live a respectable and peaceful life?

    ChristianVisitor got a reaction from Waseem162 in Terrorism: Sunni vs. Shia   
    Let's not be cowards here. Call them for what they are. These radical Wahabi/Salafi/Deobandi/Daesh sects who murder innocent civilians who disagree with their twisted doctrines are not followers of God/Allah they are followers of Satan. They are not Muslims. What I don't understand is why many Shia and normal Sunnis don't call them what they are: devil worshipers.

    You cannot prove God's existence with these rationalistic arguments. Many Protestant scholars reject rationalistic proofs for the existence of God. 
    I think in Islam there are also many scholars who reject rationalistic arguments for monotheism.

    Those are fundamentalists. Some evangelicals can be fundamentalist too, but not most. I think too many Muslims confuse evangelical fundamentalists with Reformation Protestants. They have many beliefs in common but they are not the same. I've never tried to convert or demean a Muslim in my life. Most interactions I've had with Muslims were amicable and respectful.

    ChristianVisitor got a reaction from Shah Khan in Do Shias respect Christians?   
    Christians in general do not attempt to force religion upon those of non-Christian convictions. Aside from fundamentalists in some English-speaking countries, Christians overall have left Muslims to practice their own faith without interference and harrassment. The only time Christians will share about their faith is when a Muslim asks them initially. 
    Thus, do Shias also have the same mentality towards Christians? If a Christian peacefully and respectfully declines to become a Muslim do Shias allow that Christian to remain and practice their Christian faith without interference and harassment?
    This is an honest question.
    (I heard that the Ibadis in Oman are the most tolerant Muslims out of all the sects. More so than Twelvers in Iran.)

    No, the US is not a Christian nation. In fact, most "Christians" in the US are not real Christians in heart, mind, and soul. Most of them are just church-goers going through the motions but have no real love for God, the truth, and righteousness.

    I notice from personal observation that Twelvers generally have an open-minded and brotherly attitude towards Zaidi Shias but have a more closed-minded and skeptical attitude towards Ismaili Shias? What makes the Zaidi theology more acceptable and the Ismaili theology more heretical?
