A former imam from Egypt with strong family ties to the Muslim Brotherhood leadership who converted to Christianity, said Friday that some Muslims in the U.S. are using “Islamic deception” to fool Christians into believing misconceptions about the religion.
Mark Christian, who became a Sunni imam at the young age of 13 because his great uncle was a co-founder of the Muslim Brotherhood, detailed during a webinar hosted by the American Pastors Network how he began to question Islam around the age of 23, and eventually left the religion. He explained that he lived “dead inside” for a period of six or seven years before the “truth” ultimately led him on a journey to Christ that took over 10 to 15 years.
“If I look back at my life, I see that Jesus was at every corner trying to get me in, and many times I listened and many, many times, I ran away,” Christian said. “But God lured me in and I became a follower of Jesus Christ, and my story is really in the process of being put in a book.”… [read more]
San Antonio news outlets are reporting that two area churches were defaced by vandals. Identical graffiti on the structures reads: ‘No to wall’ and “Islam or Die” with an unknown symbol stenciled beneath.
These incidents purportedly occurred in San Antonio on Monday at Gethsemane Lutheran Church and Saint Gregory the Great Catholic Church. On both, black spray painted messages read in capitalized letters: “No to wall” and “Islam or Die,” along with an unidentified image, according to KABB. The TV news outlet said the defacement was done by an unknown suspect…. [read more]
Three Iranian Christian converts have been charged with “acting against national security” and illegal consumption of alcohol during Holy Communion. (Non-Muslims are permitted to drink alcohol in Iran, but leaving Islam is forbidden, so any such conversions are not recognised.)
Yasser Mossayebzadeh, Saheb Fadaie and Mohammad Reza Omidi – all from Muslim backgrounds – were charged at a court hearing in the northern city of Rasht on 10 September. If found guilty, they are likely to be flogged. In 2012, Omidi was one of four Christians given 80 lashes after being convicted of the same charge…. [read more]
lhwm notes: This is what they do to those who do not believe what they believe. Obama is allowing refugees into our country. History and current events are clearly showing you what they are doing to those countries they reside in. Do you see the big picture?
Indian authorities in Madhya Pradesh state have arrested and jailed 12 individuals, charging them with having converted to Christianity in violation of laws forbidding religious conversions.
The 12, who included a blind couple—Balu Saste and his wife Bhuri—with their 3-year-old child, were arrested on January 14 in Dahar village and sent to jail the following day. On Jan. 17, seven of the prisoners were subsequently released on bail while the others continue to serve their sentences.
Police Chief Inspector Umesh Chandra Tiwari said that Saste was “already accused in another three-year-old conversion case.”
“We did not know why we were arrested and sent to jail,” said another of the group, 35-year-old Janu Bai, after being released from prison. [READ MORE]
LHWM Notes: If you read news in America you can clearly see they are pushing this here. They want to control and tell you your every move to make (like Obamacare, Immunizations on Children, Homosexuality, and the list goes on) . Right now we can freely go to church, but what is happening in India and everywhere else is quickly coming to America. Beware what you ask for!
From the time Padina was 4 years old, she followed every rule of Islam in an attempt to grow closer to Allah. But Padina could never reach Allah. “I never felt peace,” she said. “I would cry for hours to Allah, saying, ‘I am so far from you. I can never go into your presence.'” She felt depressed and hopeless.
So she made a plan to end her suffering. She and her terminally ill mother would take pills, turn on the gas in the kitchen and enter the presence of Allah as honored Muslims.
As Padina started to turn on the gas, she heard her mother’s TV in the living room. The words of a Pastor on an illegal Christian satellite program grabbed her attention: “Why do you want to kill yourself tonight? Our God is so powerful that he can change your life. Give Jesus one week!” Repulsed, Padina came up with a plan. “I will pretend to invite Jesus for one week in my life,” Padina thought. “I can embarrass Jesus and embarrass Christianity for the false religion that it is.
In one week, I will call this television program and kill myself live on the program. That will disgrace the God of the infidels.”
Inspirational and beautiful. What for a wonderful Lord we have. God bless the persecuted Church all over the world, but especially in Muslim-majority countries. “Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age.” – Jesus Christ
