Kurdish Muslims are “Just Sick of Islam” – Turning to Christianity
I'll be perfectly honest and open and out front. I am not a doomsday Dispensational Christian. I do not believe these are the "last days," according to some. In fact, I believe that we may just be on the verge of a mass spiritual awakening, the likes of which the world has never seen! In making that claim, I will point to a recent article, one of many that I have seen and one that has been testified to in an interview earlier this year from a Marine veteran who is currently helping the Kurdish people in Kurdistan. The news? Many Muslims have become disillusioned with Islam in the Middle East and have begun to embrace the Lord Jesus Christ.
A Christian ministry leader in the Kurdish Region of Iraq told the Christian Aid Mission that Muslims in the area are "just sick of Islam."
"People are very hungry to know about Christ, especially when they hear about miracles, healing, mercy and love," he said, as reported in the Gospel Herald.
Many of these Muslims are Muslim in name only. They are like many who claim to be Christian, but have no idea what the Bible teaches. These people are like them in that they really don't know what the Quran is teaching them. In essence, even Islam would call them hypocritical or not true Muslims.
Christian Today reports:
The ministry director, who declined to be identified for security reason, said the Muslims in their camp have witnessed the brutality of Islamic State (ISIS) militants carrying out beheadings and other horrific acts in the name of Allah.
The director said his ministry has been swamped with Iraqi Muslims seeking to know more about Christ and the Bible.
"As terrifying and horrifying as ISIS is, they did us a great favour because they came and have shown them all the killing, saying that it's all in the Quran verses. So now we don't have to say much, we just say the truth," the director.
