Islam in Indonesia is facing a serious threat to its hold on the country.
Looking for a solution to the problem of radical Islamic terrorism?
Here it is at the Believers Stand United website: “Indonesia: Muslim Converts to Christianity ever 15 Seconds.”
Pray for continued Christian awakenings throughout the Muslim world, as people leave behind the bloody sword of Muhammad to follow Jesus, the Prince of Peace.
Indonesia, the largest Muslim nation in the world, is seeing approximately two million people convert from Islam to Christianity per year. Islamic authorities are so alarmed, they’re starting marketing campaigns to try and stem the tide.
While many parts of the world are becoming Muslim at an alarming rate, other areas are actually experiencing a dramatic rise in Christian converts. One such place is Indonesia where it is estimated that over 2 million people convert from Islam to Christianity each year. That’s about one person every 15 seconds. Even more encouraging, if this rate of conversion continues, by 2035, Indonesia will no longer be a largely Muslim nation. Indonesia is currently the largest Islamic nation in the world with over 200 million professing Muslims.
While these conversion numbers are good news for Christians, Muslims aren’t taking the news so well. In fact, they are so concerned about this new “alarming” trend of Christian conversions that they’ve launched a marketing campaign aimed at saving the Muslim youth. They call it the “Save Maryam Campaign”. The primary component of the campaign is a video that depicts Christians as infiltrators who trick an unhappy young girl named Maryam into the Christian lifestyle. They claim that most Christian converts are youth and propose launching the country’s first Muslim youth TV channel. Another aspect of the campaign is a phone helpline that will assist youth in understanding the social and cultural issues that impact their lives.
Much of the Christian influence in the country can be attributed to Christian radio and television stations and telephone hot lines that not only preach the word of God but offer counsel for personal and domestic problems.
Those numbers in the article are not Christian triumphalism or unfounded hopes—they are lifted directly from a piece put together by concerned Muslims.
Pray. Send missionaries. Watch peace break out.
