Reader comment on item: More Converts to Terrorism
in response to reader comment: So, why are more people converting to Islam in America?

Muslims are leaving Islam on a daily basis; the difference between converts to Islam and converts from Islam is that Muslims don't denounce their faith in public out of fear. I live in a Muslim country, Most of my friends are just sick of this religion; they show their hatred toward their religion in secret and only to us Christians. Majority of them drink alcohol and commit adultery in secret. Majority pretend to fast, fasting in Muslim countries became cultural habit more than religious.

This is from Islamic resources; Christianity is the fastest growing religion in Africa mainly from converts from Islam to Christianity, millions are converting from Islam to Christianity on a yearly basis.

The formula for me is very easy, "Love your enemies as much as you love yourself" Jesus loving and divine message to humanity makes sense to me. "Kill your enemies" is a barbaric order and can never make me close to a loving GOD.

GOD created human equal, love them equally and I just can not accept that he will permit a person to kill another person in his name.

Unconditional LOVE and Peace that was lived and taught by our lord Jesus Christ is what drives me toward Christianity and it is what drives me away from Islam.

I can only pray for those confused souls who convert to Islam, I am sure though that none of them was a real Christian and none have experienced the love of Christ. Whoever really understands the message of Christ can never leave it for anything else

Lets assume that Islam is the fastest growing religeon now, Adultery is committed on a daily basis, does that make it right. Crime rate is growing all over the world, does that make crime right? Nazism btw was the fastest growing cult in Europe, did that makes it right

GOD bless you and hope that you will find the truth
