Muslim Refugees Becoming Christians in Response to ISIS

Experiencing Mohammad-like behavior is leading many Muslim refugees in Iraq to embrace Jesus.

Apparently, the conversions we see happening among Muslim German immigrants is also taking place in the refugee camps in Iraq. Christianity Today reports,

More and more Muslim refugees in UN camps in Iraq are embracing Jesus Christ and expressing repugnance of their former religion, Christian Aid Mission workers have disclosed.

“They’re just sick of Islam,” a Christian ministry leader in the Kurdish Region of Iraq recently told the Christian Aid Mission.

“People are very hungry to know about Christ, especially when they hear about miracles, healing, mercy and love,” he said, as reported in the Gospel Herald.

The ministry director, who declined to be identified for security reason, said the Muslims in their camp have witnessed the brutality of Islamic State (ISIS) militants carrying out beheadings and other horrific acts in the name of Allah.

The director said his ministry has been swamped with Iraqi Muslims seeking to know more about Christ and the Bible.

“As terrifying and horrifying as ISIS is, they did us a great favour because they came and have shown them all the killing, saying that it’s all in the Quran verses. So now we don’t have to say much, we just say the truth,” the director.

The Kurdish Region of Iraq hosts some 900,000 refugees, around 233,000 from Syria and the rest from Iraq, based on UN figures issued in January this year.

The Christian ministry director said his organisation provides aid to displaced people living in tents and dilapidated or unfinished buildings inside the sprawling camp. Aside from shelter, the Muslim refugees are given food, blankets, heaters and even diapers for babies.

The Christian Aid Mission workers are also bringing copies of the Bible and distributing them to refugees who have expressed interest in knowing more about Jesus Christ and His teachings.

“We just help because we love them, and maybe the next time we visit we tell them about Jesus and give them Bibles,” the ministry director said. “We believe in the power of the Word of God. We don’t have many preachers. We don’t have many missionaries, but we have the Word of God that we’re able to print, purchase and deliver to the people and their children.”

He said there has been a great Christian “awakening” among the Muslims in the region, adding that he has personally witnessed many such conversions.

Notice that these defecting ex-Muslims don’t delude themselves like the President and insist that the killings, rapes, and tortures are “not really Islamic.” They make the connection between Mohammad’s behavior and what they have experienced at the hands of jihadists. And they flee to Jesus.

Liberals should follow their example.
