Converting to Christianity because of Muslim violence?

Sami Zaatari

 

Most recently answering-Islam released a new article by ?Reverend' Bassam M. Madany which discussed the supposed re-birth of the Church in North Africa, the article can be found here:

The main highlight of the article was about Algerians who had began to convert to Christianity, and it this that I want to discuss, because as we shall shortly see, this Reverend shot himself in the foot, and has shown everyone how irrational converts to Christianity truly are. The reverend writes and quotes the following:

The paper mentioned several important factors that led people to convert to Christianity: 

"When we enquired from those who had come over to the Christian faith to learn about the factors that led to their conversion, they mentioned several factors, among them was ?The violence of the fundamentalist Islamist movements.' A Christian evangelist working in Algeria reported: ?These terrible events shocked people greatly. It proved that Islam was capable of unleashing all that terror, and those horrific massacres! Even children were not spared during the uprising of the Islamists! Women were raped! Many people began to ask: Where is Allah? Some Algerians committed suicide! Others lost their minds; others became atheists, and still others chose the Messiah!'"  

"Quite often, the ?New Christians' testified to the fact that what they discovered in their new faith was love; it formed another factor in their conversion. These are some of their words: ?We found out that in Christianity, God is love.' ?God loves all people.' ?What attracted us to Christianity is its teaching that God is love.'"

The testimonies of these new Maghrebi Christians are heartwarming. The Christian message came to them through various means, but it struck them as a word of a loving God in search for His lost sheep. They embraced the Messiah who died on the cross, and rose again for their justification. Notwithstanding all the difficulties that they were to face in the future, they clung to the Biblical Injil that had brought them peace with God, and the gift of eternal life. 

RESPONSE

Yet again we see the typical Christian evangelical disregard for the truth. The evangelical mentions the atrocities committed during the Algerian civil war, and with no shred of evidence at all, attributed the many atrocities to the mighty religion of Islam!

Here is one challenge to this reverend and his evangelical friends, I challenge you AND YOUR HOLY SPIRIT to bring a single Islamic text that commands and allows Muslims to murder innocent women and children, and to also rape the women during war or a battle. If you cannot bring a single text that commands the following then you are liars, and your Holy Spirit is a liar as well, after all Christians claim that it is the Holy Spirit that is in them which guides them, so if the Christian are making things up that are clear lies, then we are forced to conclude that this ?(un)holy' spirit is nothing but a liar.

Secondly, what this Christian reverend and his evangelical also fail to mention is that many of the top Islamic scholars CONDEMNED the atrocities that were committed during the Algerian civil war, the scholars condemned the violence as well as those who were advocating it.

Thirdly, and here is the best part, notice, according to this evangelical many Muslims left Islam because of the violence they saw, in the evangelical's own word:

?These terrible events shocked people greatly. It proved that Islam was capable of unleashing all that terror, and those horrific massacres! Even children were not spared during the uprising of the Islamists! Women were raped!

Is it just me, or do these events sound very familiar? I think we all know that these events sound very familiar, in fact it comes straight from the Bible! Children were not even spared, women were raped, and it's all in the unholy Bible, we read:

Deuteronomy
Chapter 3

1-7

1 Then we turned, and went up the way to Bashan: and Og the king of Bashan came out against us, he and all his people, to battle at Edrei. 2 And the LORD said unto me, Fear him not: for I will deliver him, and all his people, and his land, into thy hand; and thou shalt do unto him as thou didst unto Sihon king of the Amorites, which dwelt at Heshbon. 3 So the LORD our God delivered into our hands Og also, the king of Bashan, and all his people: and we smote him until none was left to him remaining. 4 And we took all his cities at that time, there was not a city which we took not from them, threescore cities, all the region of Argob, the kingdom of Og in Bashan. 5 All these cities were fenced with high walls, gates, and bars; beside unwalled towns a great many. 6 And we utterly destroyed them, as we did unto Sihon king of Heshbon, utterly destroying the men, women, and children, of every city. 7 But all the cattle, and the spoil of the cities, we took for a prey to ourselves

 

Wow! Put the evangelical's statement beside these Biblical verses and they go hand in hand. Now what about rape:

Isaiah 13:15-18

 

Anyone who is captured will be run through with a sword. Their little children will be dashed to death right before their eyes. Their homes will be sacked and their wives raped by the attacking hordes. For I will stir up the Medes against Babylon, and no amount of silver or gold will buy them off. The attacking armies will shoot down the young people with arrows. They will have no mercy on helpless babies and will show no compassion for the children.

 

So it seems the Reverend and his evangelical friend have twisted things, it is their own genocidal God who unleashed such terror, not even sparing the children, let alone the animals, and causing the women to be raped! The irony is amazing, Christians will not even flinch nor care, and this shows you a sickness my friends, we have seen this evangelical and reverend complain about the brutality of war, rape, and murder of children, yet it is in their own Bible but when it is in their own Bible they care not, they will say it's the holy blessed word of God! Hey, if this is the truth that people want to convert to, feel more than free, because Islam needs no such blind people in the first place!

 

So how lovely, some Algerians left Islam because of terrible atrocities committed during a civil war, atrocities that are not sanctioned or allowed under Islam, and instead they went to Christianity, where the God of this innovated religion is found to be doing the very exact same things they wanted to get away from!!! And only to a Christian will this seem make sense and seem lovely, which in itself is a testimony to how illogical, irrational, and bankrupt Christianity is! In fact let us make this sound better:

 

Christian: I left Islam!

 

Muslim: Why?

 

Christian: During the Algerian civil war so many atrocities were committed by Muslims!

 

Muslim: Such as?

 

Christian: Killing children, women, innocent people, and even raping the poor women!

 

Muslim: But this is not sanctioned by Islam, no where in Islam does it call for women and children to be killed, let alone allowing women to be raped.

 

Christian: Well why would Muslims do such things!

 

Muslim: Because people sin and go against the rules.

 

Christian: Well I am going to Christianity because I am against these actions!

 

Muslim: But in your Holy Bible your God committed these very acts!

 

Christian: ummmmmmmmmm may the Holy Spirit bless you!

 

And that sums it up, Christians are irrational as irrational can be.

 

And Allah Knows Best!
