| Large numbers of Muslim migrants embracing Christianity
| Friday, November 13, 2015
|Without saying it, some Muslim migrants now in Germany are converting
to Christianity in the hope of improving their chances of being granted
refugee status and winning asylum, reports said.
Government officials and church leaders are aware of this but are still giving everybody the benefit of the doubt. After all, the German government has been telling
the thousands of Muslim migrants that they need not convert to
Christianity since German Chancellor Angela Merkel herself has made it
known that Islam "belongs in Germany," the Daily Mail reported. .
Despite this, many Muslim migrants continue to embrace Jesus Christ to the delight of church leaders. In Berlin, for instance, hundreds of mostly Iranian and Afghan asylum
seekers have changed faiths at the evangelical Trinity Church.
Many are claiming that true realisation of the wonders of Christianity, which Islam does not have, prompted them to make move. Silas, a 25-year-old Iranian man, is one of these converts who are now living in Berlin, according to Charisma News. When asked what really prompted him to change religion, Silas said
his spiritual transformation came after he read the Bible that a friend
lent to him.
"When I started to read the Bible, it changed me. ... At
first, I didn't want to be a Christian, I just wanted to understand it.
But the more answers I got, the more I ... realised I was finding God,"
he said. He then realised that "Islam was a big lie Pastors in Germany are pointing out that although Christian converts
have better chances of staying for good in Germany—since they can now
claim that they would face persecution in their home country if they are
sent back—this is not the reason why many are embracing Christ.
Afghanistan and Iran, for example, conversion to Christianity by a
Muslim could be punished by death or imprisonment. Thus, the German
government is unlikely to deport converted Iranian and Afghan refugees
back home. Read it all here........................
