Muslims converts face ostracism in France



The Islamic wourld represents the worlds second largest mission field today representing between 1/4 of the worlds population. And yet we do not see any evangelists of missionaries with "boots in the feild" attempting to work this mission feild. As we will see there are muslims that know that they are lost and that Islam and the Koran do not have the truth, but who will go and bring the Gospel to these lost and hungry souls, and who will live among them and water them and so to it that they grow into true disciples of Christ?

Muslims are converting to Christianity in their thousands in France but face exclusion from their families and even death threats.

Most Muslims hide their conversion and Protestant ministers do their utmost to protect new converts. It is estimated that every year in the world some six million Muslims convert to Christianity.

The Muezzin call to prayer. But here in France it is no longer reaching all Muslim ears.

Around 15,000 Muslims each year are converting to Christianity - around 10,000 to Catholicism and 5,000 to Protestantism. (These largely are converting on their own -- or rather they are abandoning Islam and searching for the truth. And for the most part these searching muslims are going into old-line denominational churches where they easily relate with "the familiar" man-made priesthood, the traditions, and the pomp and ceremony.)

It is often a difficult and painful choice - one that can leave them excluded from their Muslim families and friends. (This is an act of desperation -- as we have already stated that these men and women are doing on their own appart from any evangelical outreach work.)

Pastor Schluster knows what a real taboo conversion is in the Arab world. His job is to support converts by meeting them to reassure them and help them face the isolation from their families.

Pastor Antoine Schluster, official representative of Protestant Federation for New Convert Immigrants, said "True, a conversion is not easy for the Muslims whether they are practicing or not. Simply because Islam influences their daily life. And therefore they immediately have a sense of betrayal."

Comedian Siad Oujibou used to pray five times a day but found his questions about death and his desire for a God closer to him than Allah moved him to convert. He is now a Christian pastor. (See muslims too worry about death and eternity with God, they desire a personal relationship and they desire we will add the love of God and the love of Christ that are completely absent from the hate filled and evil teachings that are in the Koran.)

But he has faced many reprisals and humiliations from his family and was even under a sentence of death.

Said Oujibou, Protestant Pastor, comedian and convert, said "We are under this law if we change our faith. In certain countries would be condemned to death because we have converted. But I haven't changed my religion. I don't believe in religion, I believe in God. And God and religion are two very different things."

Many Muslims in France hide their conversion but the trend is continuing. (Consequently they go to no fellowship, they receive no teaching, and these can not grow -- except through Divine intervention -- which does occur again and again throughout church history

World wide around six million Muslims a year convert to Christianity. (This is a wild guess with absolutely no basis if this were true muslimism would be in decline and upheavel as village after village and town after town would be converting and the islamic terrorists would also be on the rum with no safe haven or shelter as the muslin converts on every street corner would turn them in and all their bases of operation. This statement is fantasty and can clearly be seen as such as the tenticles of Islam continue to spread throughout the world.
