Muslim Villagers Building Church in Pakistan

Muslim villagers in a Pakistani community are helping to build a church for their Christian neighbors, seeking to show peace and solidarity in a country deeply troubled by religious persecution of minorities.

CHR Comment: Pakistani Christians have too often suffered at the hands of their Muslim neighbors. The peaceful relations in Khaksabad are encouraging to see. Hopefully efforts toward peace can multiply. The church in Khaksabad was destroyed by weather, not by violence.

The story explains that Muslims in Khaksabad behave differently and perhaps believe differently too since one of the persons interviewed expressed that Christians and Muslims have the same God. However, many Christian and Muslim leaders would not agree that they worship the same God since Christians believe that God is triune and Muslims reject the doctrine of the Trinity.

Wheaton College Recommends Terminating Tenured Professor

(UPDATED) Larycia Hawkins ‘flummoxed and flabbergasted’ by decision; Chicago Tribune had praised ‘remarkable tolerance’ of both sides.

CHR Comment: College leadership has asked Prof. Hawkins to explain her understanding of the college’s statement of faith four times and on a variety of issues including: theology proper, liberation theology, and sexuality. It seems clear that Prof. Hawkins is pushing the boundaries of her institution’s understanding of the Christian faith. The article explains that her views are minority positions held among American Evangelicals. Her tenure with the college is terminated for two years but may be restored.
