by Moody Adams Mosab Hassan Yousef has the greatest conversion stories of our times. His father was a founder and leader of Hamas. Yousef grew up in a strict Islamic family. He became the leader of the Hamas youth movement and led protests against Israel and the United States.
Now, at 30 years old, he attends an evangelical Christian church, Barabbas Road in San Diego, Calif.
He renounced his Muslim faith, gave up his family, friends and homeland to seek freedom to serve Christ in the United States. His is an historic conversion.
He fearlessly told his story on Fox News knowing that leaving Islam merits the death penalty. See: http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,402483,00.html
He says Muslims are deceived and drugged and he hopes to turn millions of them to Christ.
His conversion began when a tourist invited him to a Bible study. The verse that reached his heart was Jesus’ words, “love your enemies.” Such a contrast to the Koran that says kill them.
The Christian Gospel of love comes with great power to change people:“For our gospel came not unto you in word only, but also in power, and in the Holy Ghost, and in much assurance; as ye know what manner of men we were among you for your sake” ( I Thessalonians 1:5).
