Reader comment on item: Iran's Christian Boom
in response to reader comment: It is important to discuss the underlying cause

Submitted by M Tovey (United States), Jun 25, 2021 at 18:28

Reader Prashant brings up a very good observation regarding the cause and motivation for why a people that have been historically repressed for ages are now presented with a reason to rejoice; the one thing they have never experienced from the one thing missing in Islamic religious teaching is this: hope.
Any historical examination that attempts to advise on some advantage of Muslim ideology and the basis of its attempts to define a relationship with a heretofore unknown deity (it has not been globally established that an 'Allah' was ever defined as a supreme replacement for the one true Deity of the Jewish except in circular reasoning); and any basis for that had no replacement for the divinity of the Torah. And after it is all said and done, no other religious endeavor calls for a loving relationship based upon the sacrifice of the Savior; this is what is revealed to the revived believership in Iran; and elsewhere.
