Over 20,000 Muslims Convert to Christianity (Here Is Why)

Christianity is developing quickly in the for the most part Muslim nation of Bangladesh; so quickly that it’s turning into an issue for Islamic leaders in the nation.

“Over the most recent 12 months, more than 20,000 Muslims have changed over to Christianity. More than 20,000 have changed over and this is turning into a genuine issue for the Muslims,” one ex-Muslim disclosed to Christian Freedom International.

A large number of these Muslim proselytes confront tremendous oppression for leaving Islam.

Minister Rafiqul Islam is one of the a huge number of Christians who abandoned their Muslim confidence for Christ. He lost his family and his organizations not long after in the wake of changing over, and was nearly beaten in the road by leaders of his neighborhood mosque.

Regardless of the abuse, he says he won’t quit educating his neighbors concerning “Eternal life in Jesus Christ.”

Despite the fact that Christians make up under 1 percent of the populace in Bangladesh, the numbers are developing quickly. Minister Rafiqul has seen several Muslims convert over to Christianity with his own eyes.

“Numerous Muslims are changing over. For the most part in the country ranges.” he said. “More individuals are converting  consistently. Despite the fact that we are oppressed, we are preaching the Good News.”

Facebook Apologizes for Suspending Christian Mom Over Post on Homosexuality

Online networking giant Facebook said Thursday that it made a “blunder” by suspending a Christian video blogger’s record after she composed a post about the Bible’s judgment of homosexuality.


Facebook as of late solidified the general population Facebook page of Elizabeth Johnston, an Ohio self-teach mother of 10 who runs the prevalent blog and Facebook account “The Activist Mommy.”

“Th“e Activist Mommy” Facebook record was solidified on Feb. 9 in view of a remark Johnston posted more than six months back that refered to entries from the New Testament and Old Testament, including how Leviticus expresses that homosexuality is a “contemptible” sin and a “horrifying presence.”

The remark, which incorporated no verbally abusing, was essentially Johnston’s discourse because of another Facebook client, who had remarked on one of Johnston’s recordings and contended that Christians are posers for denouncing homosexuality.

 

Johnston got a message from Facebook saying that the post being referred to was evacuated on the grounds that “it doesn’t take after the Facebook Community Standards.” Additionally, her record was solidified for a time of three days.

After she recovered access to her record on Feb. 12, Johnston distributed a post disclosing to her supporters that her Facebook account had been solidified. The post incorporated a screengrab of her unique Bible editorial and the message that she got from Facebook. She closed the post with the hashtag #FacebookCensorsBible.

Pastor Ephantus Wahome: The call of God in my life is sure

“Celebrating many years in Christ service, not that am faithful than the rest or my brothers who we started ministry together and on the way they gave up. I have experienced rejection, negative criticism, hatred and malicious stories in my walk in the ministry. I have never looked up to the negative things spoken or said about my life and ministry. My best friend, Holy spirit has walked with me and even when I feel despaired, He always encourages me to move on because there is a better day ahead.

I count it an honor that He choose me so many years back. It was when i was in form 1 at Buru Buru academy (currently NPC Buruburu) when i realized the call of God in my life. My elder brother, Bishop Simon Kariuki of ‘In His Presence Jesus Worship center’ led me to a prayer of repentance and from there on as a born again christian, i desired to serve the Lord. The greatest mentorship i received was from my Christian union (CU) chairperson Judy Akinyi . It was this lady who taught me how to pray, public speak and also sing.

Having served under so many ministers, I have always been loyal and submissive under the grace of the man of God. When you let God lead your life its never hard to submit. Even as am celebrating my life in ministry and the Lord fit it good for me to be ordained and be officially commissioned as a pastor. Soon we are planting a church in Kahawa West where we shall preach the gospel of truth, deliverance and righteousness.

It is by the grace of God that i have ministered to thousands in high school ministry, conferences and other church invitations. My call is basically winning souls for Christ. I have also mentored many artists who do real gospel music with an aim of glorifying the Lord. Baraka Encounter Night is my greatest joy, souls are won and many are encouraged, the overnight happens every 3rd Friday of every month.

My wife, minister Joy has been my greatest inspiration, she is a woman of virtue, her encouragement, prayers and moral support cannot be ignored. My ministry changed completely when she joined my life. I learn a lot from her and especially to forgive and let go. She is one kind & selfless woman who would give it all for the glory of God.

My bishop, my father and my angel, His grace Bishop Patrick Kariuki, General Overseer of Great Gospel Visioners, came to my life when I needed a father more than anything else. It was a period the Lord was speaking to me to go out and serve Him fully. I inquired of wisdom from the man of God I fellowshiped under. He could prophesy now and then about ministry. Yes, He is a great man, He brought me up but the next level needed another grace.

It was one morning after our morning devotion at 3 am, I told my wife that God is sending us to Bishop Patrick, He was to mentor, father and hold our hands in the church ministry. I clearly saw dad, wiping my tears. That very morning we met bishop and He confirmed the vision even without sharing any bit with him. It was that moment we confirmed fully its our time to go.

It wasn’t really an easy task leaving my church, actually I didn’t want to leave the church rudely so i tried several times to have a one on one with my pastor. It was fruitless and I had to send a text. We prayed about it, sought advice from friends who we fellowshiped together with but the spirit of God kept saying ,”Its time” . My pastor replied the text, encouraged us and released us with blessings.

Now we are here and the Lord has been faithful to us. We don’t take this as just another event but an honor to receive new mantle, fresh anointing, to serve in the city and beyond. We are taking this gospel to the next level, the devil has no power over the children of God. We are anointed to preach this gospel. I know being under the apostolic mantle of my father, His grace Bishop Patrick i will deliver the message of the cross to the Nations.

I have learnt loyalty, leadership, humility and ministry from my father. I will follow his steps to raise, mentor and also father another generation of disciplined, anointed, God fearing generation of Christians. I desire to be a servant leader. Working with the team of pastors, leaders, our father and his associates. I am willing to learn more to grow even better and become whom God intended me to be.”

According to media max, The Bishop was speaking at Kisii Cathedral on Sunday after a requiem mass for Father Richard Nyangoto’s mother, he challenged Kenyans to join the war on graft and stop perpetuating it. He said church leaders are ready to mediate and come up with strategies of fighting the vice. The cleric said the vice, if unchecked, will tear the country apart.

He challenged the striking medics to embrace the Hippocratic Oath and return to work to save lives of patients as their leaders and the government negotiated for their salary increment. “I urge the government to speed up the talks and address the issues raised by the medics to allow them resume work to ease the suffering of innocent patients,” he said.

FAITH WINS : Judge David Maraga Who Refused To Work On SABBATH DAY Nominated As New CJ

64-year-old Court of Appeal judge, David Maraga who is a staunch Seventh Day Adventist is the new nominated Kenyan Chief Justice. David Maraga took many by surprise by telling the Judicial Service Commission panel that he would not hear cases on Saturdays if appointed Chief Justice.

Judge David Maraga speaking at a launch

The judge was appointed to the High Court in October 2003 and elevated to the Court of Appeal in 2012. He contested for the position of Court of Appeal President against incumbent Paul Kihara but lost by a single vote.

Maraga holds an LL.B and an LL.M from the University of Nairobi. After receiving his law degree from the UoN in 1977, and a post-graduate diploma from the Kenya School of Law the following year, Maraga opened law firm in Nakuru where he practised until appointed to the High Court.

“It would be very difficult for me to sit on a Saturday to hear a case,” Maraga said in reply to a commission member’s query about a hypothetical situation, local media reported. “I would rather talk with my colleagues in the court to accommodate me and exempt me from sitting if the hearing extends to a Saturday.”

“According to the judge, only a matter of life and death can make him miss church on Saturday — for instance, an accident happening on his way to church in which case he would stop to help the victims,”

The commission’s recommendations are forwarded to the president who, after endorsing them, sends them to the parliament for final approval.

selena-gomez

“My lovely granddaughter turned 6 this week and to make her birthday extremely unique, Selena Gomez was in Australia to say hello. So cool,” he subtitled the photograph.

Houston and other Hillsong ministers consistently get visits from superstars who go to their love benefits yet the Australian clergyman was particularly appreciative to have the previous Disney star there for his granddaughter.

Gomez was additionally in Sydney Tuesday for the Australia leg of her overall Revival visit.

Rather than talking good about Gomez chatting with Houston’s 6-year-old granddaughter, some of his Facebook companions voiced their objection to mainstream craftsmen and their impact on youngsters.

Two years back, Houston reacted to faultfinders on Twitter who restricted his acknowledgment of Gomez by saying: “She is only one of numerous, numerous miscreants we respect each Sunday. Indeed, even slanderers like you!”
