I fought the good "jihad?"

Yep. That's what Paul said...

A legendary missionary who smuggled Bibles behind the Iron Curtain is calling on Christians worldwide to join the “good jihad” for the souls of Muslims in the Middle East and in other Islamic nations.

Though the term jihad carries a negative connotation – especially after the 9/11 attacks and current events around the world involving Muslim extremists - Christians have a biblical mandate to wage a “good jihad,” according to Brother Andrew, the founder of the international ministry Open Doors.

“It is literally quoting from the Bible because Paul said, ‘I fought the good fight’ and in the Arab Bible it says, ‘I fought the good jihad,’” said Brother Andrew during a recent interview with The Christian Post.

Hello Matt,

Unfortunately for many in our USA the term "jihad" is auto-associated with Islamics who, as we know, are waging a war against freedom, especially freedom in Christ Jesus.

Yes, we are called to fight the "good" fight, yet I wonder if it is the proper word for our war against evil.

May the Lord protect you and yours in all that you do, everywhere that you go.

God Bless, take care.

God Servant
