Unrest May be the Key to Reaching Muslims for Christ

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Middle East (MNN) ― Protests across the Middle East and North
Africa about an anti-Islamic video, bombings in Somalia, attacks on
American Embassies in Egypt and Libya on 9/11, and violence in France to
protest an anti-Islamic cartoon. Is this unrest positive or negative
when it comes to sharing Christ?

An expert on the matter is Robert Williams with Pioneers.
He travels in and out of the region regularly. “I think God is shaking
these nations through unrest and disturbances. For some of the Muslims
who are there, I think it is opening them up to the Gospel because
they’re seeing the hard and dark side of the majority religion and
wondering if this is really what I want to believe in.”

Williams was most recently in Egypt where the Muslim Brotherhood has
taken control. Iran faced a similar situation, and now Christianity is
exploding. Christians told Williams, “If it’s going to take a full
Islamic government taking control, we’re willing to take that
persecution if it means that many, many people in [Egypt] will come to
faith in Christ.”

Stories of moderate Muslims coming to Christ in the region are
widespread. But, Williams says, it’s not limited to them. “I’d say God
is even working in the lives of some of the hardline, more radical
Muslims as well. We hear of Jesus appearing to people in dreams and
visions as a result, he’s opening them up to the Gospel.”

While it appears Muslims are ready to come to Christ, Christians in the
West aren’t supporting the work there. “Close to one fourth of the
world’s population–1.6 billion people on planet earth–call themselves
Muslims. And they understand that we need to redeploy our resources to
reach this large segment of the world’s population, but a lot of people
are fearful.”

Williams is praying. “I pray that God would open the eyes of more and
more Christians and churches to get involved in this increasing harvest
field. It’s just so exciting to be involved in outreach to Muslims in
this day and age.”

Williams is also grateful for the safety of Pioneers workers. “A lot of
the workers that I know in country–Christian expatriates–are doing
fine. These incidents of violence tend to be sporadic, and certain parts
of cities and most of the rest of the cities are calm and not

      It has nothing to do with the beliefs themselves, but each religion arrogantly believing it has the greater influence. Islam for example, believes it’s totally unsubstantiated beliefs should be given ‘special status’ to not be criticised when they do worse than their obnoxious morally bankrupt moralising.

      Christains on the other hand are just as arrogant evangelishing their totally unsubstantiated beliefs, and just as obnoixious with their morally bankrupt moralising, by blanket bombing anyone who disagrees back to the stone age so they can assest strip them.

      I think mass murdering Christianity is the greater global problem.
