So then, brethren, stand firm and hold to the traditions which you were taught by us, either by word of mouth or by letter (2 Thess. 2:15). Guard what has been entrusted to you. Avoid the godless chatter and contradictions of what is falsely called knowledge, for by professing it some have missed the mark as regards faith (1 Tim. 6:21-22).

More muslims converting to Christianity. Deo gratias!

H/T AINA

Muslims are converting to Christianity. When they do, they often face undue pressure from their family members and friends. Converts may also face death threats from militants.

Despite the threat to their lives, courageous muslims are converting to the True Faith. Oh, wait! Is it permissible to state that Christianity is the True Faith? If one truly believes a given religion to be absolutely true for all people, why wouldn't one make such a declaration? Why follow a religion that is not true for all? It is hardly a true religion if only true some of the time or for some people.

Jesus is the Truth incarnate. He is the Second Person of the Blessed Trinity. In Him there is no deceit, for He is the Word of God, the Divine Logos Who made His home among us to rescue us from sin and death. Through Mary's cooperation, her 'Amen', the Incarnate Word became man!

Laudetur Iesus Christus!

Timidity does not become a disciple of Jesus, nor does murderous violence (used in defence of an ideology or culture) have a place in the Christian's heart. It is not triumphalistic to simply and confidently proclaim the fact that Jesus is the way, the truth and the life. The truth is, after all, that no one comes to the Father except through Him, Jesus (John 14:6)!
Why Some Muslim Syrian Refugees Are Converting to Christianity
Abu Radwan enters a church on the outskirts of Beirut with his wife and two kids.
It was here, a year and a half ago, that they converted to Christianity.
"Of course it was a difficult decision," Abu Radwan said. "I was born into a Muslim family."
The family is from the city of Homs in Syria. They sought refuge in Lebanon at the beginning of the war. Then two years ago, Abu Radwan said Jesus appeared to him in a dream.
"I started going to the church," he said. "I believed that Jesus was coming to help us, to save us."
Seven months later, he decided to become a Christian.
"We accepted him as a member of the church and baptized him, together with his wife and children," said Bishop George Saliba. "And we take care of him."
Saliba said he has baptized around 100 Muslim Syrian refugees since the start of the civil war in Syria in 2011.
"Because [of] the constitution of Lebanon, they have the right to change their religion [here]," Saliba said. "But in Syria, Iraq, Egypt, it is impossible."
It's illegal, or at least dangerous, for Muslims to convert in those Muslim-majority countries.
