A Christian apologetic, Nabeel Q, has urged Christians to love Muslims despite all the persecution they face at the hands of the Islamic extremists.

In line with details, Nabeel Q, who in his new book written on the subject of jihad has encouraged Christians, wherever they are to love Muslims despite persecution. Nabeel Q, who is a global speaker with the Ravi Zacharias International Ministries (RZIM), and has already, authored two other books. He has acquired a master’s degree from the Eastern Virginia Medical School, a master’s degree in Christian Apologetics from Biola University, along with a master’s degree in Religion from Duke University. Moreover, at present he is studying Judaism and Christianity at the Oxford University.

In his book he has stated that though Islam is not a religion of peace, but the Christians must extend love toward Muslims. “My suggestion to Christians is you can go a step further than that. Even if you have people who are trying to kill you, you can love them, you can self-sacrificially embrace them. The reason why that is a response is because it will proactively deter radicalization,” he writes.

“So Christians have the ability to go that extra step further at the risk of their own lives to preclude radicalization on the front end. And that’s the main issue here, isn’t it? Because we are acting so re-actively. Waiting for things to go wrong and then we are saying how do we fix it?”

“I think the Christian message is the only one out of these options to proactively stop it from happening. Waiting for things to go wrong and then we are saying how do we fix it? I think the Christian message is the only one out of these options to proactively stop it from happening.”

Nabeel Q, further continued in the context of the San Bernardino shooting, saying, “If you look at this guy (Syed Rizwan Farook) in San Bernardino, he had no friends at his work place. That’s why he shot everyone. Even though he was a radical Muslim, had proclivities to kill people, if you had still as a Christian say that ‘I’m going to self-sacrificially love this guy even if he kills me.’ I think there is a good chance he might have changed his mind.”
