We’re Back....

Regarding Chuck's commentary on Muslims converting in huge numbers to Christianity--the nail in the coffin, so to speak, is that Islam can't even hang onto its new converts.

In the wake of 9/11, we kept hearing that many Americans had become intrigued by this exotic "new" religion, and were voluntarily embracing it (as opposed to being told to convert or die--the choice faced by vast numbers throughout history).

According to one account (based on statistics from Islam Watch), "Yes, some gullible people are converting to Islam out of great ignorance. But, that is a very small fraction, almost negligible. Good people who think freely cannot maintain peace of heart and mind in Islam. They leave Islam immediately. That's why in the U.S. more than 75% of new converts leave Islam in just a few years."

I struggle to love my Muslim neighbors (not very hard, I admit). But the evidence that so many are open to the Good News is both astonishing and joyful--a reminder that we should both pray for and interact with the Muslims among us. As Joel Rosenberg notes in the article cited by Diane yesterday, "More Muslims converted to faith in Jesus Christ over the past thirty years . . . than at any other time in human history."
