Skepticism of Conversion has Eternal Consequences

Reader comment on item: The Perilous Path from Muslim to Christian
in response to reader comment: I also doubt that Muslims are converting out of Islam

The skepticism expressed here about 'converting' to a discipleship in the Jewish Messiah is one of multiple examples of not really knowing what that entails; that if one does not desire a true change of heart, then discipleship will remain elusive. Belief, being that matter of faith in the True person of Yeshua, is not to be slightly regarded, that if true to its reality of faith, then a real change of life in being reborn in the Holy Spirit will be demonstrated and reverting will be impossible. When we hear of 'converting back,' that witness is a tell, that an earlier 'confession of belief' was not complete and reverting back does become an eternal failure.
This is one of the issues that circulates in demonstrating how easily many are deluded into thinking Christianity is an easy life choice: it is not. Confession of Yeshua, Jesus, as Savior, must be a heart choice of entering into the kingdom rule of eternal life. And as hard as that might be coming out of Islam (or any other religion, for that matter); if it is real, it is permanent and that is why, as an example of those trapped in Afghanistan, they are killed for that true conversion into faith and not reverting for the sake of religious convenience, which is problematic when considering the consequences. Heaven is not a place of religious convenience; it is the eternal destination of true believership, a circumstance lost on any who are not so convinced and reject its Truth.
