CLAIM: Naaman worries that he will need to return to Aram and worship his pagan gods (v.18). Some evangelicals believe that this justifies Muslim Background Believers participating in worship services to Allah—for the sake of the gospel.
RESPONSE: This passage does not support that sort of contextualization. Notice that this Pagan, Aramean man asks for forgiveness twice for this sin. If this is appropriate for contextualization, why does he ask for forgiveness? God is free to offer grace to young believers like this, but we should be clear that he is forgiving us for doing something wrong.
