What we don't realize as Christians in Western cultures is that many Muslim Converts are giving up everything for Christ. They are also putting their own lives at risk since to leave the Muslim religion is punishable by death.

This is denying oneself that Jesus talks about.

That is right Steve.

I have a Turkish friend, he became a Christian after graduating from uni, when his father found out, he had to run for his life. He went inter-state and went hiding because his own family wanted to kill him.

It took a couple of years for the anger of the father to die down. He returned to our state but when he returned he was bombarded with Islamic apologetic materials.

He did not recant, his kids are Christians today.

LP,

I linked to that article too. Sometimes Colson's Breakpoint e-mails are right on target, and interesting to boot.

I'll say a prayer for your former Muslum friend's family. And for everyone else in the same perdicament.

Thanks JK.

That is right, the article is interesting and apparently this Coptic Priest from Egypt is a vehicle for many conversions...
