Oh my, am I about to open a can of worms.
There was an article today on a young Muslim man who is staring in a National Geographic special on Jesus. Many Christians are up in arms. I say, "STOP!"
Are you a Christian? Doesn't that mean loving our neighbors? Didn't Christ gather followers of all faiths and backgrounds? He taught us through his words and actions.
As a Christian, I have no problem with this young man's role in this film special.
This young man has taken to heart the role he was asked to play in this film. He has looked closely at his own religion and at the role of Jesus in it.
Perhaps it has brought him closer to Jesus and his teachings.
Perhaps one day he might accept Jesus as his Savior. Perhaps not.
Even if he does not, he has opened his mind and done a lot of introspect. The minimum of which is that he has learned from Jesus' teachings of love and being non-judgmental. This is a lesson more Christians should learn.
