More Muslims are turning to Christ

by Macedonia Project

What is happening?

You rarely hear about it on the news. You even rarely hear about it in churches in the West, in the East, or even in the Middle East. But the big, untold story is that more Muslims are coming to faith in Jesus Christ today than at any other time in history. More than 1 million Shia Muslims have turned to Christ since 1979. In Pakistan, there are now more than 2.5 million followers of Jesus Christ. In Sudan, there are now more than 5 million followers of Christ.

Not every country has seen millions leave Islam to follow Christ. In Syria, there are between 4,000 and 5,000 Believers, but this is up from almost none in 1967. In Saudi Arabia, there are about 100,000 followers of Jesus now, up from almost none in 1967. But overall, the trend has been dramatic and largely unreported.

What motivates Muslims to seek out other options?

What they see as the failure of Islamic governments and societies to improve their lives and give them peace, security, and a sense of purpose and meaning in life, is causing them to leave Islam in search of truth.

Some have lost their way entirely and become agnostics and atheists. Others, as we have seen, have sadly turned to alcohol and drug abuse.

But millions are finding that only Jesus Christ heals the ache in their hearts and the deep wounds in their souls.

For other Muslims, it is rage that is driving them away from the Qur'an and the mosque. They are seeing far too many Muslim leaders and governments and preachers both advocating and acting out cruelty toward women and children and violence even against fellow Muslims. Not all of these find Jesus in their journey away from Islam, but millions do.

In 1993, a Saudi sheikh delivered a sermon entitled "Christian Missionaries Sweeping the Islamic World". Eight years later, in December 2001, another significant Saudi cleric, in a live interview on Aljazeera satellite television confirmed that, "every hour, 667 Muslims convert to Christianity". Al Qataani warned: "Every day, 16,000 Muslims convert to Christianity."

"Every year, 6 million Muslims convert to Christianity."
