Occasionally I’m asked to speak to larger groups (which is a nice change from the often smaller home group models), where recently I had the privilege of speaking at the NZ Christian Writers Retreat 2019… held at Flaxmill Conference Centre in the Coromandel.
The horrific Christchurch Mosque killing of March 2019, where 50 people were gunned down in their house of prayer, has many kiwis in discussion. What is best for our country? What is the right thing to do? Our national radio talk back shows are debating the controversy together with fears of future Muslim takeover.
In my own circle, our Churches are on hot debate as the local Anglican Church invited all the Church leaders to pray in unity for the people in Christchurch. However, only a few were aware that a Muslim leader was also invited to that prayer meeting. Obviously surprised with the non-transparency of the invitation, some struggled whether they should be praying with the Muslims, while others were publicly adamant that they would not.
So I guess a question is “should, we pray to Allah?
This theory is a relatively recent and standalone interpretation that also advocates a literal 490 years. However, it is not seen in a linear timeline where each marker ‘connects together’, but rather that there are two separate timelines that ‘overlap’ each other. Find out to see whether this interpretation has some weight that can be banked on?
