Title: I converted to Christianity
Post by: Al Masihi on December 06, 2017, 12:27:54 PM
I'm also on Christian forums so some of you may recognize me here. I was born to a muslim family in the heart of Islam if you can guess where that is, I never liked Islam and I found myself hating it the more I read about it. I became a pagan after that and started to worship idols and practice magic. I always ever since I was a child had an interest in Christianity so I started to distance myself away from polytheism but I felt scared because I used to think I was invincible when I worshipped pagan gods and I thought if I left their worship I would lose it all. But I couldn't help but stare at the face of this person my whole life and wonder how could he die for me until one day I really saw him. I asked if he had power or my gods did and I said to myself the one who would appear I would worship and then I saw him standing far away was a man draped in light I could see curly hair on him and a beard of average length but light was covering his face his hands were outstretched as if he was waiting for me but before I got to him my dream ended I woke up and I said you are my God and my Lord Jesus king of kings. So here I am Im also hoping to know some Greek Orthodox since I agree with the Church's teachings compared to other churches.

Congratulations, and welcome home! I am very happy to hear that you have come to know our God and Savior, Jesus Christ. May the Lord continue to guide you in your journey. I hope that you find a parish to attend, if you haven't already.

Thank you for sharing your testimony!

Congratulations! I explored Islam for awhile myself before becoming Christian. I eventually decided Islam wasn't for me as I found plenty of issues with it.
