Europe: Thousands of Muslim migrants converting to Christianity, leaving “religion of violence and fear”

Posted by Ann Corcoran on June 12, 2016

Speculation is rampant about why this is happening.

 

More ‘Invasion of Europe’ news….

Are the conversions legitimate or only for the sake of improving one’s chances to be granted asylum, that is the question!

Some of these cases sound sincere to me….

From World Religion News:

The past few months have seen large numbers of Muslim immigrants all across Europe converting to Christianity. Refugees in Germany, Netherlands, France, and Denmark have been getting baptized in the thousands with mass adult baptisms having happened in places like a local swimming pool in Hamburg, Germany. This has been a controversial issue with many people and leaders questioning the motives behind the conversions. Clergy in those areas have, however, stated that Christianity as a religion should be open to all, with no one allowed to judge the other.

The speculations on why the trend has been on the rise have been quite a number. Personal testimonies from some of the converts have provided a different and touching perspective to the issue. Coming from nations like Iran, Afghanistan and Iraq, the refugees have claimed they always lived in fear and gone through hell with some having been raped and so on. Some have referred to Islam as a “religion of violence and fear.” Conversion to Christianity is punishable by death in some of the Islamic nations and they might face death if they go back. Some claim to have converted after meeting very helpful Christians during their refugee journey who welcomed them with open arms. Seeing Christianity as a religion of love, a good number opted to convert.

Here is a line in the story I found perplexing.  Why would any Christian church oppose conversions?

In Netherlands however, conversion may end up being a hindrance to asylum as some of the liberal state churches are opposed conversions.

What are state churches in the Netherlands? Does anyone know?

In the US, the ‘religious’ organizations that have been contracted to resettle refugees in your towns are strictly forbidden to attempt conversions to Christianity (so they can’t use this as a reason for why they resettle Muslims!).  

See one of several posts on the prohibition.

No US government bucks if you try to tell Muslims about Christianity!

    These people are running from chaos and terror. They have lost everything. Conversion to Christianity can be seen as an attempt to fit in. These converts are brave people who are wanting to adhere to western values. They should be welcomed with open arms and protected from the potential consequences from radical Muslims. Don’t kick a convert unless you are playing football.

    TIME WILL TELL AND BIBLE PROPHECY SHALL TELL IF THESE CONVERSIONS OF “SORTS” ARE SINCERE AND GENUINE. JESUS CHRIST IS THE ONE AND ONLY JUDGE OF THEIR SOULS. AS A HUMAN BEING, I WOULD REMAIN RESERVED AND KEEP A WATCH ON THESE THOUSANDS OF CONVERSIONS. I WOULD LOOK FOR MOTIVES AS WELL. ARE THEY CONVERTING TO BRING MUSLIMS IN, OR ARE THEY ACTUALLY CONVERTING FOR THE HEAVENLY FATHER YAHVEH AND ACCEPTED CHRIST AS THEIR LORD AND SAVIOR? THESE CONVERSIONS MAY ONLY BE A SHIELD AND COVER FOR OTHER PURPOSES. THIS SHOULD BE CLASSIFIED AS HIGHLY SPECULATIVE.
