To Richard the Lion heart: what do you expect from Holy Spirit?

Reader comment on item: Is Allah God?
in response to reader comment: Allah's oaths

Dear Richard,

Do you really believe that Holy Spirit will convert people to Christianity?
Something will impose a religion on somebody. Where is free will? It doesn't make sense.
Are you trying to say people I can't explain what christianity is but one day Holy Spirit can do it instead of me?

History of Christianity is really interesting. A pagan Roman Paul saw a vision of Jesus, all of a sudden he became founder of Christianity. Similarly, Holy Spirit touch somebody's heart then that person becomes a Christian. What kind of magic does work here? Perhaps that's is right who can be Christian with free will? Just with the aim of something? I am muslim I use my own heart and wisdom. We Muslims don't have such agents. Allah gives us a brain it should be enough. This means that everybody can be Muslim. Now, it makes sense.
