Missionary Shares the Story of a Syrian Refugee Who Came to Christ Partly as a Result of Christian Aid to All, Even Muslims

What a missionary in Europe shared with us regarding a Syrian refugee who claims to having been converted to Christ

First, a note (from me): this confirms from another angle the story that we have heard from Christian mission/relief agencies that Muslims are startled to receive aid from Christians since, as they related, they would not give such aid to Christians. This has led to Muslims seeking to know more about Jesus and Christianity.

As the missionary related the story:

G-- , the three-week refugee from Syria, came to the house for a longer get-acquainted session. S.B., a fluent Arabic-speaking colleague from southern France, gave us a lengthy Skype interview to collect G--'s story. I'll not tell it in detail, but suffice it to say that what impressed him the most was the marked contrast between the work of Saudi-financed humanitarian aid in Syrian refugee camps in Turkey (where he had served as a translator), and that of Christians. 
The Saudis would ask children's names …

A Summary of Show Them No Mercy in 4 Parts: View Number 1 (Radical Discontinuity)

On one of the google communities, I had a discussion with an atheist. One of the things that he brought up was the annihilation of the Canaanites by the Israelites. This cruel God of the Bible, as he described Him, was not one he could embrace. We had been talking about something else when he made this turn in the conversation. I remarked that I had not studied the issue much but that I was not afraid of the Bible's difficult to understand passages. As I said to him, I had a book called Show Them No Mercy: 4 Views on God and Canaanite Genocide and that I would make that the next book that I read. 

As I began to read the book, I decided to summarize the four viewpoints contained therein. I will do this as a four part series of blog posts. What is important for the reader to understand is that these are my summaries and certainly the authors of the sections and views could dispute my summation and/or interpretation as could those who hold those views. This post offers you a look at t…

"Many of you have asked how I became a Christian, how Saeed became a Christian, and how we met. This recent interview that I did with Billy Graham Radio will give you a glimpse into our journey including a time when we were threatened to be imprisoned and killed if we said that we were Christians. While every fiber of my being told me to not to say the word, God gave me the Grace and strength to proclaim that I was a Christian. You can listen to this interview and learn how God touched and changed the heart of our persecutor." -- Naghmeh Abedini
“You will be brought before governors and kings for My sake, as a testimony to them and to the Gentiles. But when they deliver you up, do not worry about how or what you should speak. For it will be given to you in that hour what you should speak; for it is not you who speak, but the Spirit of your Father who speaks in you.” Matthew 10:18-20 NKJV
