Should Christians Share In Muslim IFTAR Meals? by Futuragetty(m): 8:41pm On May 23
It's considered a bit of an oddity for Christians to feast with moslems in iftar feast.

Today, I joined my friends in their iftar feast. It’s called being polite and a good neighbor. For years, I have invited Muslim friends to attend our Easter party and they have graciously attended year after year. So when they have a potluck when their month of fasting ends, I go to their party. It’s a Jesus thing. I wish more Christians would reach out in love as Jesus did.

Ok, That's my opinion, I need to hear your thoughts on this.

The answer you seek is in 1 Corinthians 8

pls study it with a good translation.

TRUTHS ABOUT THINGS LIKE THIS ARE NOT FOR DEBATE, IF TRULY YOU ARE A CHRISTIAN, Go to the bible and find your answers... ASSUMPTION IS COSTLY.

I already read that verse. but I need to hear your thoughts.
I feel since There is only one God, and this one God is both the God and Father of Jesus and the Lord Jesus himself. Because Jesus is Lord, idols are themselves nothing, following the tradition of the critique of idolatry in the Old Testament. We have nothing to fear, and nothing to worry about—and we are therefore free to eat whatever food we like, without any anxiety.

Well my thoughts are 1 Corinthians 8.

If you still have to hear other people's thoughts then you are just seeking gist.

Ignore him please. Read Romans 14. If you have faith, you can eat it. Besides, hunger never wire you. If REAL HUNGER wire you, you go chop with GREAT thanksgiving without even "remembering" to ask questions. Thank you.

It only fake believers that practices what you are doing. Go to the north, you wouldn't see any Hausa/Fulani moslem accepting easter or Christmas meat(food) from Christians.

You can also visit the former eastern region and check if you will find any indigenous Christian accepting food or meat from moslems during their festivals

Yorubas are our major problem in Nigeria as a nation. They don't know what is abomination is religion or politics. No different between Yoruba Moslems and Christians. They can freely share their place of worship with each other. The will eat anything eatable and married themselves regardless of what their religious holy book said. Yoruba attached no value to their religious belief but their personal comfort

Here is what Jesus said about food.

Matthew 15 vs 10-20
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
10. Jesus called the people to him. He said, “Listen and understand what I am saying.
11. It is not what people put in their mouth that makes them wrong.[c] It is what comes out of their mouth that makes them wrong.”
12. Then the followers came to Jesus and asked, “Do you know that the Pharisees are upset about what you said?”
13. Jesus answered, “Every plant that my Father in heaven has not planted will be pulled up by the roots.
14. Stay away from the Pharisees. They lead the people, but they are like blind men leading other blind men. And if a blind man leads another blind man, both of them will fall into a ditch.”
15. Peter said, “Explain to us what you said earlier to the people.”
16. Jesus said, “Do you still have trouble understanding?
17. Surely you know that all the food that enters the mouth goes into the stomach. Then it goes out of the body.
18. But the bad things people say with their mouth come from the way they think. And that’s what can make people wrong.
19. All these bad things begin in the mind: evil thoughts, murder, adultery, sexual sins, stealing, lying, and insulting people.
20. These are the things that make people wrong. Eating without washing their hands will never make people unacceptable to God.”
Jesus has spoken -- eating food will not make you unclean. grin cheesy

So because of hunger, you are ready and willing to sell your birthday as Esua.
I understand it hunger and the aroma of the coming moslem festival that inspired you writeup.
Before you exchange your soul with 2pieces of meat and a plate of amala or rice, please kindly read 2Cornth 6:14-18 "

"Be ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers: for what fellowship hath righteousness with unrighteousness? and what communion hath light with darkness? And what concord hath Christ with Belial? or what part hath he that believeth with an infidel? And what agreement hath the temple of God with idols? for ye are the temple of the living God; as God hath said, I will dwell in them, and walk in them; and I will be their God, and they shall be my people. Wherefore come out from among them, and be ye separate, saith the Lord, and touch not the unclean thing; and I will receive you, And will be a Father unto you, and ye shall be my sons and daughters, saith the Lord Almighty. (2 Corinthians 6:14-18

OYO for that Christian oooo


I have lived in the North for over 10 years and they would never share in our own Christian celebration...

Rather if they catch a Muslim BRETHREN trying to share in Christian celebration they will threaten to kill the person eventually

cool

All abrahamic religions are tools developed to enslave Africans.

Free yourself from religion.


It is the very first step if Africa is to develop.

As far as I am Concerned Food is food!

As long as it is not Sacrificed to idol

As long as it does not Affect the Faith of those Around you

Lastly as long as your Conscience does not Judge you.

I have eaten salah food especially the ram meats and i don't intend ending it anytime soon. I have also participated in eaten Hindu foods and sweets and i don't regret it.

Actually, common sense should tell anyone that it is wrong to do so because you are indirectly validating their beliefs.
