Blinded by their own ignorance about Islam

Muslim man prayingA renowned Christian apologist says the entertainment and media industries are blind to the realities of Islam – to their own detriment.

Dr. Ravi Zacharias says America has often been caricatured as not knowing very much about the world. But he explains that it is no longer a caricature, but real. The author and speaker is discovering, as he talks with college students and members of the media, that they don't know what they're talking about even though they believe they do.

For example, Zacharias says Islam is being touted as the fastest-growing religion in the world.

"It's not. It's the fastest-growing enforced religion in the world. They miss out that very key word," he shares. "And now the two institutions that lord that belief are the entertainment world and the media world – the very two institutions that will be the first to be evicted if that worldview were to take control. That's how little they actually know about what they're talking about."

And that, says Zacharias, is why it's so important to teach the distinctiveness of the Judeo-Christian worldview. "We must teach our children how to think and what the Bible says about thinking and what the Bible says about God," he tells OneNewsNow.

He also says pastors and youth pastors need to be trained how "to lovingly and gently dismantle those [contrary] worldviews to present the beauty of Christ."

Dr. Zacharias hosts the weekly radio broadcast entitled "Let My People Think."
