Eighty Muslims in Germany are said to have realized the falseness of Islam and accepted Christianity, as we read in one report:
Close to 80 Muslims at a refugee camp in
Hamburg, Germany, have been baptized into Christianity despite the
ongoing physical and sexual abuse that Christian converts face at such
camps in the Western country.
“While Christian converts suffer in
great measures at the hands of their Muslim neighbors in Germany, around
80 refugees were recently baptized into Christianity,” International
Christian Concern, a persecution watchdog group, noted on Tuesday.
Mohabat News reported that Pastor Albert
Babajan conducted the mass baptism of refugees at the camp in Hamburg,
revealing that one of the main motives for their conversion is
disappointment with Islam.
Shima, one of the converts to
Christianity, explained her decision, saying, “I’ve been looking all my
life for peace and happiness, but in Islam, I have not found it. To be a
Christian means happiness to me.”
Babajan admitted that some of the
refugees who choose to convert to Christianity might be doing so because
they fear they might be killed if they are sent back home to their home
countries, where they face terrorism from radical groups.
The pastor revealed, however, that he has a way of telling whether a person is genuine in their conviction.
“Because the Christian faith changed the
way of thinking, the world view. If someone told me that at night he
can sleep again or an old enemy could forgive, then I know that in his
heart he is a Christian,” he said.
Although many refugees are seeking
protection at German refugee camps, a major report by watchdog group
Open Doors earlier in May found out that there have been over 300
incidents of Christians being physically or sexually assaulted by
Muslims in refugee camps in the country.
A number of such incidents have been
downplayed by German authorities who are fearful of growing
anti-immigration sentiments in the country, the report alleged, however.
“Despite increased reports about this
problem by the media, charities, human rights organizations, church
leaders and Christian organizations, German authorities and politicians
have hardly ever launched an investigation,” the watchdog group warned.
“Instead, we believe that incidents are
deliberately downplayed and even covered up. During confidential
discussions with researchers from Open Doors, it has become known that
even in police stations, religiously motivated attacks on Christian
refugees are not documented as such,” it added.
