No, We Can't review
No, We Can’t, by Robert Stearns and published by Chosen Books, is a book that seeks to explain the myth of coexistence between Christians and Muslims. As the world continues to change, Christians must remain steadfast in their devotion to the word of the Lord and to Biblical principle. As believers we need to be deeply concerned with the affairs of our world and care about the culture clash that is occurring and will continue to occur.
One thing the Bible call Christians to do is to be truthful. John 16:13 states “But when He, the Spirit of truth, comes, He will guide you into all the truth; for He will not speak on His own initiative, but whatever He hears, He will speak; and He will disclose to you what is to come.” You must be vigilant to be truthful in all things. The author of this text would lead the reader to believe at one time that there existed in this world a greater emphasis on tolerance being more important than truth. This is where I choose to disagree. To be tolerant at the price of truth is equivalent to a lie, in my opinion.
Stearns explains how coexistence between the two aforementioned religions and cultures is a myth and cannot really happen. The book explains how what is really occurring in this world is a war – for dominance between the two religions. Stearns predicts a time will soon come when Islam and Christianity will clash in a fight of peril. What we can and need to do as Christian soldiers of faith is explained in detail in No, We Can’t!
I believe this book is a must read for those who sit in the middle of these two cultures. The world is waiting on edge to be pushed in one direction or the other and dominance of one view of the world may save or lead to damnation.
I received this book for review from Chosen Books for this independent review and in exchange for no compensation other than my honest review and opinion.
