We were privileged to participate in a Common Ground seminar held near Seattle from October 10 to 12. We met with people who have been working with Muslim followers of Jesus Christ for many years, and we were able to share what we are doing with using the Qu´ran to teach people about Jesus. On Friday evening, we visited a large mosque and had a meal with the muslim people there, as well as being able to observe their prayer time. There was a time of sharing our differing beliefs, as well as our common ground afterward. ...

Follow Jesus instead of Paul to reach out peoples of other faiths in the world.

Christians use the wrong approach for peoples of other faiths. The results: Christian population is only 1 to 2 % wherever the “great religions” dominate. Do you want to know how we can remedy this?

Christians have believed that the Apostle Paul was the greatest missionary + theologian we ever had. To a great extent, it is right. Following his mission approach enabled the Christian population growth from about 200 just after the resurrection of Jesus to 2.2 billion today.

Would you be surprised if I tell you that the same Pauline approach is preventing the increase of Christians among peoples of other faiths today? To truly understand this, we have to study: the approach difference between Jesus and Paul + where they received their authority.

Paul received authority from Jesus. Paul called Jesus the Son of God several times and the Lord (implying Yahweh God) more than 70 times. Paul delivered the Gospel message of Jesus, his authority. He himself followed the Gospel teachings of Jesus.

Jesus received authority by quoting the Old Testament, ultimately from God. The OT was the only clear representation of God to the Jews, and was their highest authority. Therefore, quoting many times from the OT gave Jesus authority over Jews.

Paul also quoted the Old Testament many times just as Jesus did. But his purpose of quoting the OT was to establish continuity of the Gospel from the OT, not to gain authority. The OT was not the authority to Gentiles.

Paul’s ministry worked great because the Gentiles did not have their own “great religions” like Islam, Hinduism, Buddhism or Confucianism or Judaism or Zoroastrianism. The “great religions” have already their own authority from their own scriptures.

Summary of Jesus + Paul. Jesus preached with the highest Jewish authority (the OT) to reach Jews who had their own religion. Paul preached the Gospel with the authority of Jesus to reach Gentiles who did not have their “great religions.”

The only Christian who has successfully reached out to peoples of “Great religions” is Jesus, not Paul. But Christians have followed the Pauline approach & succeeded in reaching out to peoples with no “great religion," but failed to reach out peoples with their own “great religions.”

All the successes in Christian missions and evangelism have been with peoples with no “great religion” of their own, and are entirely due to the application of the Pauline approach. This misled Christians to apply the same approach to peoples with their own “great religions.”

The Christian population in any area dominated by “great religions” has been very minimal, 1 to 2 %. This has been the case for the last two thousand years. We can see why Christians are failing with peoples of other faiths – because we are blindly following the Pauline approach.

Then what shall we do for peoples of other faiths? We should follow the example of Jesus. We should preach the Gospel through the authorities of peoples of other faiths. This means Christians should study scriptures of other religions before they go there.

Have you wondered why Jesus quoted so many times from the Old Testament while the Gospel eliminated 90% of it, including the Mosaic Law, the OT festivals, the food laws and rituals? Jesus did not need the OT except to receive the authority that comes from God.

We should preach the Gospel through the authorities of “great religions” when we want to reach out to peoples of “great religions” or other faiths. If Jesus were to come alive today, that is what He would do.

The difference between Jesus and us. Jesus was the Son of God or the second person of the Godhead and knew the Old Testament better than any Jews. We are mere humans and have to study scriptures of other faiths so that we know more about it than peoples of other faiths.

You might question how we can know the scriptures of other faiths better than peoples of other faiths. When you set your mind to it and God helps, it is possible. He will open your hearts to see how you can apply their scriptures to deliver the Gospel.

Summary: We should follow Jesus instead of Paul to reach out to Muslims, Hindus, Buddhists, Confucianists etc.
