What is Their Definition of Infidel?

I believe the question to ask when dealing with a Muslim you don't know is this: "WHAT IS THEIR DEFINITION OF INFIDEL"?

This can tell you a lot. If they consider Christians and Jews as infidels, in my opinion, they will also consider any non Muslim as an infidel. And the word INFIDEL is very much a loaded word. Loaded with contempt for anyone they consider as an infidel.

Some jihadi groups have a very broad definition of infidel, for example if anyone does not specifically adhere to their sect's interpretation of Islam, they would be considered as infidels. These radical jihadis seem to consider "peace" as killing all those who disagree with them and then confiscating their lands and property. I don't see any point in making an agreement with this type of radical because they also seem to believe in radical lies (comperable to the lies Hitler told Chamberlain).

For a Christian, Jew or atheist it would be similar, in my opinion, to agreeing with their own execution or enslavement.

If an Islamic group agrees that any person has the right to walk in their conscience and decide on how they will serve their Creator in heaven, then it may be possible to deal with them on certain things. It may be possible to have limited peace agreements with them (don't forget leaders change) and you might risk letting them into your country after suitable thorough vetting.

Some Christian leaders are considering making certain "peace deals" with Muslims. I believe these considered agreements should never be "fast tracked" or be be too broad in scope. For the simple reason that Jesus Christ is Lord of Christendom, but essentially, only a prophet in Islam.

I agree Sarah, that Jesus is Lord even though there are still some Muslims who don't have a clue about what the Bible is saying about Him. God has already prepared a throne for Jesus.
Prophecy is built on the prior Old Testament prophets, not the other way around. And as Jesus said, He fulfilled their prophecies not eroded them.

They can put any name on any person, it does not change who the person is. Jesus Christ will remain Lord of all until He Himself proves differently. It doesn't matter what is said about Him. Blessings ~ Sarah
