Yes, our very own Ken has some handy tips for wannabe missionaries who want to convert Muslims. This is a screenshot from an article by him on his employers website (here).
In a long rambling article Ken shares how he came to be an effective missionary to Muslims.
His first attempt at worming his way into Muslim company involved asking some local Muslims if he could join their football team. He reports gleefully:
Sure enough, they accepted me and also later made some interesting comments that I was the first “white guy” that wanted to play soccer with them.
But he didn’t tell them the real reason for his interest in them. Ken was deceiving them. He was not just some nice dude wanting to chill with some Muslims.
He had a hidden agenda. He was an evangelical missionary out to convert them.
Another “method” Ken used was to turn up unannounced at a mosque:
I remember just walking up to the mosque and meeting several Muslims and then it turned into a two or three hour discussion. Once I met a few Muslims and got their phone numbers, I was able to get into their lives more… It was amazing.
He boasts that as a result of his underhand dealings with some Muslims he met “I was able to get into their lives more”. He encourages other covert missionaries to adopt his underhand methodology.
The extent of Ken’s deception is truly staggering:
All the Muslims I have ever met were amazed that I wanted to “just hang out” with them. That context gave me thousands of opportunities to share the gospel and answer apologetic type questions with them. These principles are transferable into other cultures also.
Ken boasts how “All the Muslims I have ever met were amazed that I wanted to “just hang out” with them.”
Of course the Muslims were amazed!
He had taken advantage of their hospitality and good will. He concealed the real reason for his interest in them. He was not primarily interested in them, their lives and their culture. He had created missionary “opportunities” as their guard was now lowered, their defences down, their innocent trust in him assured. He was a false friend.
These techniques Ken now passes on to a new generation of wannabe missionaries to Muslims. All via their website.
But who is Ken Temple? We all know him well on Blogging Theology because of his endless inaccurate comments about Islam and his defence of American fundamentalist Christianity.
He also has a day job at Propempo International training missionaries for the Muslim world. Notice where the arrow points – to the heart of Muslim North Africa:
It is based in Newnan, a city in Georgia, USA. Here is Ken at work on the left in the red top.
Blogging Theology stats tell me that Ken is by far the most frequent commentator on this site. But he is no random evangelical. He is a paid missionary to Muslims. He trains Christians on how to ‘befriend’ Muslims but conceal their real proselytizing agenda.
I thought readers might find it of interest to know this.
