Muslims Meeting Christ: A Growing Trend and Answer to Prayer
Eric Metaxas | BreakPoint Muslims Meeting Christ: A Growing Trend and Answer to Prayer For the last several years, researchers have noted what happens when Muslims meet Christ—huge numbers of them are becoming followers of Jesus. According to some researchers, the number of Muslims who have switched allegiance from Muhammad to Christ has skyrocketed from effectively zero in 1960 to as many as 16 million worldwide today. That includes roughly 470,000 right here in the U. S., including Rima Fakih.
And even the awful news we see is being used by the Lord to draw Muslims to Himself. As David Cashin of the Zwemer Center says, “I have often referred to Islamic radicals as ‘proto-evangelists’ for the Christian faith.” That dynamic has certainly happened in Iran, where thousands of Muslims left Islam for Jesus after experiencing the harsh faith of the mullahs. Truly, as Joseph in the Old Testament said, “You meant it for evil, but God meant it for good.”
