What’s driving Muslim refugees to Christianity?
Hundreds of Muslim refugees have converted to Christianity across Europe in recent years, according to church leaders, but motives vary.

In Austria, the rolls of Catholic churches swelled with Muslim immigrants, leading to new guidelines for baptism to ensure sincere faith. Other churches in Lebanon, Germany, and England also report growing numbers of Muslim refugee converts from Afghanistan, Iran, Syria, Iraq, Bangladesh, and Eritrea.

Bishop George Saliba of Beirut, Lebanon, told PRI he has baptized about 100 Syrian refugees since 2011. In another Beirut church, a pastor meets with Syrian refugees to teach them “Christian doctrines” from Scripture. He requested anonymity out of fear of Islamist reprisals but said dozens of Bible study groups for Syrian refugees now meet in Lebanon.

No national statistics exist, but many local churches across Europe attest to the influx of Muslim refugees ...

Joe is right, John Y. In fact Catholicism has a lot in common with Islam , as this famous ex-Catholic has pointed out.

John Y, you spend a lot of time on sermon audio right? How many catholic sermons are on sermon audio? Just wondering. Also I would suggest listening to Dr. James White for starters. I'm not boasting of having a lot of knowledge but it doesn't take a lot of research to see that the RCC has major flaws that go against the grain of the Holy Scriptures. I also know that I am not the only one that has brought this to your attention. I say this lovingly.

Who says it is not Christianity? That is only your own worthless opinion. Nobody in their right mind believes what you stated.

Jim L;
If God is doing the "driving" then it is for real. God's purpose.

If the person is doing his own driving then he will become a false witness with a religious conviction. Such as the Roman Catholics, Arminians and modern (Liberal) Anglicans.

We can only pray that God is working here by His grace to build His Remnant.

I just put up some quotes from M. Luther on another thread, and he was an important man in the Reformation movement, which no one including myself would deny. (He disliked allegory for one thing. See [URL=http://tinyurl.com/k2oyq6w]]]http://tinyurl.com/k2oyq6w (Hermaneutics: Principles of Bible Interpretation--PDF[/URL] )

However we had a pastor at my former church who eventually started his own church in Omaha, who was a former Lutheran. He wasn't sure that Luther was a Christian, and such things as, [URL=http://www.rapidnet.com/~jbeard/bdm/exposes/luther/general.htm]]]http://tinyurl.com/gnvynm7 (Martin Luther---General Teachings/Activities)[/URL], could very well make one wonder that. Only an Evangelical Lutheran church that also reformed itself away from some of Luther's practices can be considered Christian. If it hasn't than its no more Christian than Romish, Anglican or Catholic churches are.

"When I started to read the Bible, it changed me,"Silas said. "I had a lot of questions and Pastor Martens said I should come to class and ask my questions. At first, I didn't want to be a Christian, I just wanted to understand it. But the more answers I got, the more I wanted to stay, and I realized I was finding God."

Rev. Gottfried Martens leads the evangelical Lutheran Trinity Church near Berlin, where hundreds of primarily Persian refugees have converted. His church holds services in Farsi, which is illegal in Iran.

“By getting baptized we have to say goodbye to our home country because we can never go back. But we accept this. The Muslim god in Iran was angry and strict, but Jesus accepts us as we are,” an Iranian named Medhi told Germany’s Der Spiegel.

Conversion in Europe is not without danger. Many who abandon Islam for Christianity face family and community estrangement. One former Muslim in Lebanon was stabbed in the street after attending church. Rev. Martens of Berlin told the Daily Mail that Muslim translators intentionally misquote Iranian and Afghani converts in order to sabotage their asylum requests."

Holy Ghost power through the power of God's word speaks life into dust.

Two things, if God is "driving" the person to Christianity, then he is being driven to have an appearance of Christianity for non-Christian reasons. For example Disraeli was a Jew who wanted to become Prime Minister of England in the 19th century -- the only way that was to happen if he became a Christian, He didn't become any ol' Christian, but a member of the Church of England.

Two, if a person becomes a member of the Church of England or a Catholic, he still sin't a Christiazn [URL=http://www.reachingcatholics.org/islam_rome.html]]]http://tinyurl.com/jfc4w7c (Understanding Islam and Roman Catholicism)[/URL]
