A blog that seeks common ground between Christians and Muslims
A Divine Wink can be defined in many ways. The words “divine wink” are derived from Acts 17:30 in the New Testament, which says, “And the times of this ignorance God winked at, but now commands all men everywhere to repent.” An important Divine Wink is the expression of God's applause when Muslims and Christians, who take their faith in God seriously, come together to overcome ignorance and promote mutual edification and understanding, despite our religious differences. I believe God is dissatisfied with the divisive, zealous, religious arguments that unnecessarily separate good, God-fearing people. I find that most religious misunderstandings occur because of differences in perspective rather than differences in belief. See also my novel, A Divine Wink: When Love and Religion Become Rivals.
