Welcome to Riddle News which is published every Monday and Friday. This is a Special review of the Trump response to Covid-19.
The following are facts recited by Muslims, not Christians.
[Historical fact as noted by author: Muhammadanism and Islam refer to the same religion, although Muslims are offended by the former term. It is an historical fact that no free society has ever willingly embraced the religion of Islam. Their religious history is one that is synonymous with the sword. The religion was started with the sword, spread throughout Africa and portions of Europe with the sword, and is to this day sustained by the sword. But is it the fastest growing religion as reported in the press?]
The following findings were revealed by Saudi Arabian Sheik Ahmad Al Qatani in a 2006 debate that:
- Since 1900 Muslims have declined to a record low of 316 million
- There are only 150 million African Muslims living outside the Arab countries
- Of the 30 African countries using Arabic script there have been a disturbing number of conversions
- 10,000 converts per year in Algeria
- 45,000 converts per year in Morocco
- 250,000 Muslims in Cambodia (1975)
- 24,321 mosques in Russia in Russia (1927) with only 20 still existing
- Tens of thousands (2001-2004) in Kyrgyzstan converted to Christ
- 4 million Muslims in Burma (Today 300,000)
- Currently 50,000 converted and baptized believers in Saudi Arabia
- Pakistan had 80,000 Christians in 1947 and six million in 2000
- Bangladesh has seen 10 million converted to Christianity
- Iran had 500 Christians in 1947 and over 4 million by 2006
Now for my observations:
That means that 110 million Muslims (10% of the world’s Muslim population) have converted to Christianity in the last 18 years! This explains why the persecution of Christians has been on the uptick.
Yet we are taught by the Media and others that Islam is the fastest growing religion. But this growth of Christianity actually explains the increasing persecution of Christianity. Historically governments persecute groups they deem as threats. A declining Christian faith would not be a threat, but a growing Christian faith would be considered a major threat.
Check out the history of the Jewish people. Why are they hated so much? Because of their strong faith in Jehovah God and their growth in numbers. Christianity has been preached worldwide with the message that Jesus Christ is the ONLY way to heaven (based on Christ’s own words: “I am the way, the truth, and the life: no man cometh unto the Father, but by me” (Jn. 14:6).
Of all the religions of the world only Christianity puts man where he belongs. According to the Bible we were and are created by God, we are born with a sin-nature passed down from Adam, Jesus Christ died for our sins and opens the way for our salvation by His grace, and He takes a personal interest in our lives. False pastors and religious leaders teach otherwise and try to keep ordinary people from reading the Bible.
But Christianity is more than a mere religion. Religion is primarily a set of beliefs established by man for man, while Christianity is a relationship between man and God through God the Son Jesus Christ. When we receive Christ as our Savior, He makes us heirs and joint heirs with Christ. We are made sons of God (believers) rather than creations of God (all humans).
Tomorrow an election is held that will influence the direction this country will follow politically for a long time, but of more import is our need for a revival among Christians both personally (I certainly need it) and corporately (the church needs it). I am 77 years old and have read of revivals taking place on a community, state or even regionally basis, but never have I ever seen a national revival.
But that is what we need!
