What do you remember of your journey to faith in Christ? When did it start? How long did it take? What obstacles were there along the way? Perhaps, like me, you made your decision at a very young age, and a simple faith slowly became a deeper understanding. Or maybe it all happened suddenly and your life was transformed very quickly. Regardless of the when and the how, you will remember things that made a difference – the words of a pastor, the actions of a friend, Bible verses that seemed to be written just for you!
When former Muslims share their stories, they often speak of a journey that began with doubts and questions. They saw contradictions in the Qur’an or violence and hatred between Muslims. They could not ignore the hypocrisy. Friends and family could not help them make sense of things. At some point, they saw something in Christianity that drew them in. More often than not, it was a believing friend or colleague.
