Danish cartoons and the gap between Christianity and Islam
John Piper has written an excellent brief article on the Danish cartoon controversy: "Being mocked, the essence of Christ's work, not Muhammad's." In it, he notes, "The work of Muhammad is based on being honored and the work of Christ is based on being insulted." Piper has boldly pointed out the differences between a Christian and an Islamic worldview. We do not worship the same God! What you believe about God makes a pivotal difference in the worldview you embrace, the life you live, and the culture you create.
