Son of Hamas Leader turns back on ISLAM and embraces CHRISTIANITY.

credit to Ern SHeong for the following post.i think i will start visiting his blog more often. www.ernsheong.com nice posts he got there. and yea he is a jpa scholar in us. haha.
.
“Mosab Hassan Yousef is an extraordinary young man with an extraordinary story. He was born the son of one of the most influential leaders of the militant Hamas organization in the West Bank and grew up in a strict Islamic family.
.
Excerpt from the interview:
.
“MOSAB HASSAN YOUSEF: Now, here’s the reality: after I studied Christianity — which I had a big misunderstanding about, because I studied about Christianity from Islam, which is, there is nothing true about Christianity when you study it from Islam, and that was the only source.
.
When I studied the Bible carefully verse by verse, I made sure that that was the book of God, the word of God for sure, so I started to see things in a different way, which was difficult for me, to say Islam is wrong.
.
Islam is my father. I grew up for (one) father — 22 years for that father — and another father came to me and told me, ‘I’m sorry, I’m your father.’ And I was like, ‘What are you talking about? Like, I have my own father, and it’s Islam!’ And the father of Christianity told me, ‘No, I’m your father. I was in jail, and this (Islam) is not your father.’
.
So basically this is what happened. It’s not easy to believe this (Islam) is not your father anymore. So I had to study Islam again from a different point of view to figure out all the mistakes, the huge mistakes and its effects, not only on Muslims — (of) which I hated the values … I didn’t like all those traditions that make people’s lives more difficult — but its effects also on humanity. On humanity! People killing each other (in) the name of God.
.
So definitely I started to figure out the problem is Islam, not the Muslims and those people — I can’t hate them because God loved them from the beginning. And God doesn’t create junk. God created good people that he loved, but they’re sick, they have the wrong idea. I don’t hate those people anymore but I feel very sorry for them and the only way for them to be changed (is) by knowing the word of God and the real way to him.’”
.
Praise God!this is the change i wanna see, cause im studyin in a goverment college that is so overpowered by islamic admin. sigh* well God knows my path =)
.
i will post about how my CHristian walk started later on..
