Theological Musings of a Former Muslim: 5

Islam, Muslim Contextualization Add comments

Recently, we ran the testimony of a former Muslim who turned to Christ. Now in a new series, we have decided to share the theological details of his conversion, quoting both the Qur’an and the Bible.

“Now this is eternal life: that they may know You, the only true God, and Jesus Christ, whom You have sent.” John 17:3

 “Yet to all who received Him, to all those who believed in His name, He gave the right to become children of God.” John 1:12

 “If anyone loves Me, he will obey My teaching. My Father will love him, and We will come to him and make our home with him.” John 14:23

I had no one who could explain the meaning of these verses to me. Yet I continued to ask God for guidance. He explained me through His spirit.
