More Muslims than Jews look for Messiah June 4, 2006

In a recent survey by Ephraim Yar of Tel Aviv University revealed more Israeli Muslims than Jews believe in special creation and look for the advent of Messiah.

Also, the study revealed more Jews believed in the “evil eye” than in heaven after death.

52% believe in the evil eye; 43% surveyed believe in heaven.

Pictured here is the gozmunjughu, a small blue or black glass that has a black spot inside a white circle, resembling the iris of an eye. This ornament is the “secret” to warding off anyone assailing you with the evil eye.

The results of this study are a sober reminder to our friends of the dual covenant that Jews and Muslims alike need the Messiah–the One who came and gave himself for the forgiveness of sin and to triumph not only over the evil eye but all fear and darkness.

Read the brief (here) in the Washington Times.

Nathan, friend, Mercer is a fine example of kingdom thinker-visionary.

Denny, Sib does know, but is afraid if he raises the issue any further, the evil eye may get him.
