Son of Hamas Leader Turns Back on Islam and Embraces Christianity

There is an amazing story on Fox News this evening about the conversion of Mosab Hassan Yousef, the son of Hamas's leader, converting from Islam to Christianity. He says his conversion came about "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...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..." God is awesome. Lord we pray for Mosab that You would bless him greatly for his courage in following Jesus! Give him Christian friends who can encourage him in his walk with You and help him to be a light to many more Muslims, in Jesus' name we pray, Amen. For help understanding Islam, click here.
