Excerpt from Mr. Adnan Oktar's Live Conversation on A9TV dated January 7th, 2013
ADNAN OKTAR: Forging alliance with Christians is a very crucial matter. Our brothers and sisters should visit churches and show compassion to Christians. They should get to know the Christians there. Especially our brothers and sisters abroad should go to Churches and meet with people there. They should show compassion to them, hand out our books which we have prepared by making use of the Gospels, hand out our books in which we explained that the Jesus Messiah will be coming and distribute our cd's. They should talk to them. They can tell them about the Oneness of Allah or they can only hand out our books, ask after their health and welfare and just pay visits to them. That is because when they read the books they would be reaching the necessary information anyway. But of course discussions that might offend them should be avoided. That is because then they might also talk about their views on Islam and that would not be right. Handing out books and taking their books would be enough. I mean you can accept their books if they present you theirs. But handing out our books would be enough as we advocate the Existence and the Oneness of Allah. In the verses of the Qur'an Allah says; -I seek refuge with Allah from the satan- "[Call to the way of your Lord with wisdom and fair admonition,].. and argue with them in the kindest way." Allah tells us to say that Allah is One and that their God and our God is One and that we believe in the same Allah. So Allah tells us to tell that to them and to approach Christians with compassion. So that should be our attitude. Alliance with Christians is one of the most important aspects of the system of the Mahdi. Bediuzzaman tells us that the Mahdi will be in alliance with the Christians. Let us develop our alliance with them to the utmost level so that it would provide convenience when Mahdi and his students appear. Because we are the pioneers of the Mahdi, laying such a foundation would be very to the point. Especially in abroad, it would be very beneficial for our brothers and sisters to develop a spirit of an intense alliance and cooperation with our Christian brothers and sisters. This holds true for both Turkey and abroad.
