Dearborn Mosque Outreach 2012: Islamic Center of America

Here's some footage of our trip to America's largest mosque, where we peacefully distributed hundreds of copies of the New Testament. Just last year, Dearborn Police said they would arrest Christians for passing out materials on public property near the mosque (even across the street). In an amazing turn of events, Dearborn Police were very professional, and they even let us stand on the curb at the parking lot exits to pass out Bibles to Muslims who were leaving the mosque. I've never seen Dearborn Police so respectful towards us. It's simply amazing to see the fruits of the hard legal work of Robert Muise and David Yerushalmi of the American Freedom Law Center!

Praise God...Who sent Lord Jesus to save humanity from Self, Sin and Satan that everyone's prayers are answered regarding this great work of His.

Nice shirt David! But better yet, way to go on handing out those tracts and Bibles. Very encouraging video. So glad to see Dearborn police acting politely. May the rest of the trip go as well.
Covering you in prayer,
Luke

Glad it went well. Did you report the car window ?

This is simply amazing given how previous years were. You still got some retaliation, but it was a lot less severe this year. Keep evangelizing, I'm going to keep praying for you guys!

Just as an observation, if the car window on the vehicle of a Muslim had been broken by a Christian under the same circumstances, Eric Holder's Department Of Justice would send teams of DOJ investigators to the scene to investigate this "hate crime".

Thank God there aren't any incompetent police officers this year. Hopefully you'll continue to be successful in sharing the Gospel without people infringing on your freedom of speech.

You should think of something epic to say if you're unjustly arrested again -- something along the lines of "give me liberty or give me death," but it should be original so you don't look lame.

1) I see that one Police Office showed respect toward Christians as they proselytize. 2) I see a person came from the direction of the Islamic Center not liking where you were standing on USA soil. 3) I see a Christian brother had his car window broken..I'm sure it was all in Islamic Terrorist love.

Even you distribute millions of time, you cant change them....
Their main roots are in Saudi Arabia, which spreads the big money,, i dont think you can win this gamble without money distribution for conversion..but how long it last is question ?

Islam with high conversion ratio in world is based only through money.. spreading like virus in all countries.

JIMM said...

@ Teri, Dont be misguided, That is a normal trait of Arabs, Go Stand in line for anything that is FREE!!, If you watch the video carefully, you will see that one Arab after seeing what he got for free, comes & returns it back!! But NOT TO DESPAIR, The Lord will IN HIS OWN TIME convict & convert them, & all that we can do is continue to be INSTRUMENTS to this end!!

nope its all on birth rates. besides once fossil fuel runs out they will all be in the dumpster so folks just use up all the oil they are selling since we already got alternatives. Because the middle east dudes did one fatal fatal error they did not do anything learn how to produce new technology. which means no one wants anything from them once they are out of oil and the countries will decay.

I understand your practical point of view, but don't forget that we don't convert anyone. Only the Holy Spirit can do that. :) Also, many find Christ in areas where the Gospel can't reach them, because God, Himself, reaches out to them.

I'm of no religious persuasion, including Christianity or Islam, and therefore, I can't relate to your guys desire to proselytize. That being said, I'm VERY sorry to see what happened to George's car window. What you guys are doing is totally legal, and no one should be subjected to that kind of treatment. :-(

I'm posting this since it seems to have gone missing from youtube:

"Has anyone noticed that the "New Atheists" are angrier, more insulting, more arrogant, more aggressive, and more easily offended than most Muslims? Pay attention to the comments, and watch how these "New Atheists" sit around watching Christian and Muslim videos all day, only to mock and ridicule. I guess they feel like it gives them some kind of meaning." - David Wood, like a boss

Derek Adams said...

It's funny how David compares Atheists to Muslims, and concludes Atheists are the more aggressive and arrogant, yet he spends all his time trying to stop the Islamic Sharia Law. Maybe a classic example of cognitive dissonance.

Yeah I like to ridicule and mock a lot, that's true, but Wood isn't any better. And no we don't need to be given meaning. We create it. If any Christian can actually prove "objective meaning" exists. That shalt be a fascinating hypothesis. Please answer the first question. Why does God exist and not nothing? What is the meaning of this? Oh..and What is the objective meaning of your God existing? Who gives your God it's meaning and purpose? Or do you confess meaning doesn't need to be given?

Conversion is a change.. happens always in human life. there is nothing wrong in it. Life n society depends on type of changes occur.

There are more than 2 billion Christians in the world,, without conversion, where did you get them ? first of all did Jesus born in Christianity ! no,,, in which religion he born then ?

The popular history of churchianity begins from 325 years after Christ, the 20thyear of the reign of Constantine the Great, when the famous Council was convened at the City of Nocea.
It was Constantine the Great who issued a decree in 321 A.D., for the general observance of Sunday, instead of the Jewish Sabbath. He hated the Jews and everything connected with the Jews, and said: "This day shall be regarded as a special occasion of prayer, because it is the Sun’s day, the day of our Lord". Since that time, the church has accepted that decree, ignoring the fact that this was the day for the worship of the sun among the pagans.

@Skýwæłker»»

I was speaking about conversion in the spirit, not merely changing one's religion to Christianity.

Skýwæłker»» said...

@ betwixt..

Conversion in spirit ? first of all how can you define "spirit" ? if we assume it as a ideological character of body,, then if spirit converts means body converts too..

Conversion to Christianity is not wrong,,it would be better to be christian than Muslim.

I have seen in many churches giving bread piece n wine to considered them as body n blood of Jesus to people,, to remove sins by taking them.... how ignorant these things are ! Jesus says not to kill,, but people kills lot animals n feed on them on daily basis,, if Jesus says not to kill humans, he could have used word of Murder.. but word of kill comes to animals,, isn't human an animal ? but high skilled animal !
Can we define word of "human" in spiritual manner ? : Those living beings where their heart is matured to the extent to think beyond this material world where no other living beings can do,, are considered as humans ! if we do the same as other animals do ! are we humans ?
