a decision to be Christian but now it is very dangerous for me.  I and wife have been baptized in secret.  Tell me how to pray to the
Christian God.

I am very impressed with this story and very sad for Jesus.  I wish I can return in time and be beside him.  I learned to love Jesus.  
Jesus is the truth and no one can deny this.  Lifting him from death was truth and not imagination.  Jesus is truth and peace from
the beginning until the end of the world.  Jesus lifted from death to be on the right side of God.

Professional in Middle East in 30s:
I don't have any experience with BIBLE with a Muslim background….I know that Jesus came to fulfill the Old Testament and have a
perfect life but honestly I did not know that there are such details related between Jesus and the plan of God…. I am so glad I did it
with the right way because I do not want to reject God’s purpose.  I am proud that I changed my whole belief about Christ and
became Christian even though that was against everybody I know and I became threatened to die for my belief but I know even if I
die that will be the door for my eternal life through faith in Jesus Christ.

I believe and I agree that the earth and sky was begun by God, and it can be ended by God.  I believe in the Muslim Suras… I learned
that Jews do not believe in every thing  the Old Testament says…. Jesus is prophet and savior, even I as a Muslim  is ordered by
Allah to believe in Jesus Miracles by the power of God…. I learnt through the lessons that God makes repentance for all people and
that because Jesus sacrificed for sake of all people… I hope you understand my position I started to  feel that I am very close to
what you have taught me, no body forces me to be satisfied with any thing but that I am satisfied.   I am ready to meet any Christian
you send to me.

Semi-Professional in Middle East in 30s:
Many times recently I felt very devastated because of my situation.  But when I look to the daily scripture, I see myself there and it
refreshes my faith.  At the beginning I asked my self why everything collapsed in my life when I became Christian.   But from the
Bible I knew the answer.  The reason is not because I am weak, but because I am a new fighter for God.   And I became so strong in
Satan's eyes and he became so terrified that he tried to do his best to discourage me.  So I smiled and told him do his best ....
ultimately I will win because I have God with me.

Semi-Professional in Europe in 30s:
I lived with the Muslim religion all my life, but as I got older, I was not convinced it was right.  Several years ago I got a Bible and
read many Bible scriptures without the help of anyone.  I was very touched by the history of Jesus, his life and his death.  When I
read the details of the crucifixion, I wept.  In 2001, I met some Christians who explained things in the scriptures on salvation, and
all that I had read before was more clear.  I was baptized and now live in _______.  I am faithful in the Church of Christ.

apostles….We need to follow the great Son who is Jesus….They can receive God’s word, then be baptized right away….The Lord’s

Through the teaching of Bible we know that God created human being…. thanks for providing me the very useful informations
about the organization of Bible and no doubt it enrich my existing knowledge about Bible….. The story of the suffering servant in the
lesson very much inspired me.  He shed his life for the betterment of the other human being. He suffered a lot so that the rest of the
human being would be saved from the anger of God.  That suffering servant who was predicted came centuries later.  He was
Jesus who suffered in our place and died in our place on the cross, taking the punishment for our sins on himself. …. Through the
miracles of Jesus Nicodemus know that Jesus was the son of God…. Jesus was really the Son of God on earth. As a follower of
Jesus the lord….

I become aware that the coming king will be a descendant of David and will be called "the Son of God".  That is amazing, isn't it?.. I

save humanity from sin…. she would give a birth to a baby boy who would rule and would defeat satan,… this baby in her was from
the Holy Spirit and this son would save people from their sins… I become fully sure now that Jesus was the true king, Jesus was
more than a man the miracles did were amazing and proved that he was divine. The word of Jesus is the word of God…. Jesus

Professional in Far East in 20s:
To be a Christian lifelong is difficult …. Jesus is the God with us in form of flesh and clot of blood. He is the supernatural human that
ever lived in this mortal universe…. God according to our [Muslim] religious viewpoint has no son and never has a precedent the
same to himself but while studying bible I 'm getting some more facts…. he was dying for the sake of truth and humanity…. had to
sacrifice even his blood , body and spirit for the sake of truth and love for humanity. Jesus fulfilled the promises of his ancestors….
Yes I agree with you without fail…. God wanted to show his loyalty to the humanity even the fault of His own son. The killers of His
son was also forgiven…. Christians Bible is trustworthy and have a lot of evidence to prove its validity.

not know anything about the Christian religion in the past, but now I know everything.   Really I am Happy for that, it is great ….. I feel
happy and so excited especially when read the story of Jesus.

                                 A FORMER MUSLIM’S STORY

I was born in a family that belonged to the Sunni Muslim sect. The area I was raised in was the Shi-ite Muslim sect.  
So I was able to be exposed to the whole Muslim community ~ secular, Sunni and Shi'ite.  

I tried to be an especially good Muslim.  Sometimes I followed the Sunnis.  But when I became dissatisfied with them, I
flipped to the Shi-ites.  Eventually I discarded both.  I just couldn't communicate with my Allah and approach him
because he was so scary:

A god commanding that hands or arms be cut off as punishment, or beheading.
A god who commands racism and oppression or killing of anyone who opposes him.
A god who shows favoritism to men and deprives the women of rights.
A god who changed his words [Qu’ran] many times.
A god who asks you to send your son to blow himself up, taking innocent lives with him for his pleasure.

I couldn't find a replacement, so I gave up since there were not enough resources or freedom to study or search.  But
my personality from inside was deeply wounded because I was missing something. I always felt a "Mysterious Power"
was taking care of me.  So I started to ask that Power to reveal himself to me.  I was playing with fire because I was
questioning everything in my culture.

Then I got my first study BIBLE.  It was in both Arabic and English.  

The thing that caught my attention is what was underlined ~ John 8:32
("Then you will know the truth and the truth will
set you free"
).  That was just a new challenge.  But I kept wondering what is the truth.  Is it historical fact, or scientific
fact, or something else?  I knew there was no absolute truth.

Still I wanted to know the truth to be free because that was my first concern,.  Later I found another interesting thing
about the truth in the same gospel ~John 14:6 (
"Jesus answered, 'I am the way and the truth and the life. No one
comes to the father except through me.' "
)  That was an amazing theory.

Then I started to pray to the Christian God to reveal himself to me and show me the right teaching I was looking for ~
the teaching based on love, peace, freedom.  The teaching that makes you proud to be a human being, to be treated
with respect and dignity.  

Then I discovered another verse in Jeremiah 29:11 (
" 'For I know the plans I have for you,' declares the Lord.  'Plans
to prosper you, not to harm you.  Plans to give you hope and a future.' "

I went to the Church and I asked...to baptize me...by immersion.  I was happy because in my opinion this time I knew
what I did was based on God's rules.  Basically the church I attend shared with me more or less the same doctrine
like baptism by immersion, confession, faith, repentance, unity, keeping the Lord's Supper, contributing, and the
Bible as the only guide.  Thank you, Jesus, for your blood that freed me from my sin and reconciled me again with
God the father.
