in response to reader comment: Islamic converts to Christianity

Submitted by Jaydan Freyone (Gibraltar), Feb 8, 2007 at 07:41

Dear readers, it is true that the vast majority of converts to Islam are really spreading Islam through deceit I have personally experienced this so called 'transitionist to Islam', I find that many Muslims react violently or get upset when I share the Faith with them, however always in charity. We Christians are called to live and defend the faith in loving Truth and peace; 'no compromise'!

Respecting Muslims, never harsh but open to the Holy Spirit in prayer, our lives ought to be consistent with our faith, or we will be openly and rightfully mocked, it has to be in total trth and sincerity, however in authentic dialogue, as Pope Benedict XVI says. we have to expose the differences and difficulties in Islamic theology in light of the Gospel, without the fear of a 'fatwa'.

I feel that as a Catholic Christian we have been asleep for to long, in my dialogue with Muslims I sence their ignorance of Christianity and the lack of Christian doctrine, I sence fear, many realize the many Historical and Islamic theological blunders. We have also got to pray for the fallen away Christians, who have for some reason or another turned to Islam. However facts are the opposite, many Muslims are converting to Christianity, in North Africa and other Islamic countries, mostly amongst our Evangelical brothers and sisters, God Bless them, why fear, when we have the Truth! many are finding the peace and joy that only Jesus Christ can give, however many converts are terrified of coming out and bearing public witness, the results could be devastating, I know a few in these situation a few converts who are grateful to God for finding the love of Jesus.

Judge for yourselves, when Christians become Muslims, nobody kills them in a free democratic country but in an Islamic country any convert to Christianity will be put to death. So much for the Religion of peace! therefore we must love our Muslim brothers and sisters before we speak to them about the liberating love of Christ. Let us challenge Muslims to open dialogue, in invitation only, very respectful, never forgetting that each person is unique in the sight of God therefore As Saint Francis of Assisi said,'always be prepared to preach the Gospel, use words when necessary'. Love Muslims till it hurts, true love means to want the best for your neighbour.

Pray, hope and do not worry - Padre Pio

God Bless

in Christ's love Jaydan
