testimonies of former Muslims

I feel the need to explain the reasons I was attracted to Christianity. What Christian's why it so interesting, and what's the attraction, so I willing to let go of what I profess the religion of Islam since the hereditary, and moved to Christianity.
This is not because the attraction of matter, or a pastor or persuasion-persuasion Christians, as alleged by a person while the person or party out that people move to the Christian religion, because persuasion, material inducements. On this occasion I would like to clarify that Such views very wrong!
The truth, is because "the call of the Lord Jesus", in person at each person wants. While I am personally very enamored with the "Safety Assurance" given by Jesus Christ in His teachings are contained in the Bible.
I describe in detail as follows:
1. Problem of Sin. Sin is attacking and embedded in humans, without exception, no one any man who escapes from sin. And the sins of the past to the present fixed same. What is the sin that so burdensome human?
1.a. Sin origin. Since Adam and Eve fell into Satan's persuasion, the man has lost all the glory of God with him / her. Adam and Eve fell into sin because violate God's commands.
Read Genesis 3:1-6. So that's the first human sin, and consequently great and wonderful and His punishment is coming. Because Adam and Eve have acquired properties the holy of the Lord so that sin comes from outside them. It originates from Satan, through the snake.
With Adam and Eve fell into sin, then all the pure qualities from God that has been lost, so they get themselves naked, after violating God's command by eating the forbidden fruit.
1.b. Inherited Sin All people have been born in sin, that man is inclined or sin-nature has the temperament, or character of sin, this is the purpose of original sin. You mean original sin is the human tendency to sin, or the influence sin that has been attached to human life from generation to generation. Sin nature inherent in humans, among others: opposition to God, to rebel His commandments, that's human nature.
The proof of sin lying, since no one teaches the little lie, but humans are good at lying. Who are human beings who never lied? That is the effect of sin inherent in humans since Adam and Eve fell into in sin, and the influence it continues to be inherited by human heredity. And humans can not get out of that sin with all its effort and its own.
Parables: the man who fell into the mud suction, the more he tried his own, he inhaled deeper, why humans who seek their own, unless there other people who are on dry ground and help, then people can be saved. All human beings have entered into the mud, no that can be save us, unless the Lord Jesus, because He is God incarnate.
Romans 3:10: "There is none righteous, not even one"
Preachers 7:20: "Verily, the earth no one is righteous: who do good and never sinned! "
1.c. The nature of sin: Sin must be borne by human beings. Humans must take all errors.
Ezekiel 18:4: "Behold, all souls I've got! Both the soul of the father and the soul child I have! And the person who sins shall die. "
Therefore, humans tried to remove his sins with a variety of ways, but futile, because humans would fall again, fall again, and did not escape from sin. Essence of sin lies in human hearts. When her rotten, he was more sinner than what could be seen by the human outwardly. And I agree also with the teaching of Ki Ageng Suryomentaram, that everything good or evil lies in the heart human! Only Jesus Christ alone can cleanse humanity from all sin!
I John 1:7 b: "And the blood of Jesus, the Son, cleanses us from all sin. "
Luke 5:24 a: "But that ye may know that the Son of Man authority for the forgiveness of sins. "
Therefore human life there is no peace, there is chaos here because of sin. Human desire to do good but never implemented, caused more sensual impulse control. More flesh human control, from the mind of the Spirit of Truth.
Romans 8:6: "For the flesh is death, but the mind of the Spirit is life and peace. "
Because sin is the desire of the flesh, the inherent human desire human nature. Lust of the flesh, sarx Greek word, meaning the desire desires human passions can not be discharged by the man himself!
Galatians 5:19-21a: "The act has real meat, which are: fornication, uncleanness, lust, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, self-interest, pencideraan, spirit-breaking, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and so forth. "
That's the nature of sin that can not be avoided by humans, and whether consequences?
Romans 6:23 a: "The wages of sin is death"
Sin, this is the thinking in human life, also in my life who want to seek the truth, and found only in Jesus just no way out of the circle of sin!
2. Problem Repentance Repentance is not just the willingness of human beings, but also the work of God. So human willingness and the will of God must be combined into one. Repent is God's invitation to us.
Mark 1:15: "The time is fulfilled and the kingdom of God is near. Repent and believe the gospel! "
and bids must be received by the human God.
Revelation 3:3 a: "Remember therefore how thou hast received and hear it: hold fast and repent! "
Hebrews 3:7-8a: "Therefore, as we are told by the Holy Spirit:" On the day if you hear His voice, do not harden your hearts as in provocation. "
Because God came for sinners.
Luke 5:32: "I came not to call the righteous, but people sinners, that they may repent. "
I feel to be a sinner who really, really, my life had full of hypocrisy, impurity and filth. Even though people look at me I outwardly religious well, but my heart is rotten and dirty, because of the influence of sin that is inherent in humans.
I have repeatedly tried very hard to live to do good, but my heart is restless, there is no peace, therefore I am interested in the Lord Jesus which can atone for my sins with certainty, such as Word.
Isaiah 1:18: "Though your sins be as scarlet, will be white as snow; even red like kesumba cloth, will be white like wool. "
After I accepted Jesus in the hearts, and repent to Him, then my heart there is peace, because as surely as-sure certainty that my sins diampuniNya, and I became a happy person.
Romans 4:7-8: "Blessed are those who pardoned her offense and offense- covered his sins; blessed man who is not his fault taken into account by God. "
That's why I felt drawn to Jesus, so ensure that my sins been eliminated with certainty. And I feel no one else can guarantee exactly sure but He is Jesus Christ!
B. Certainty of Salvation (ETERNAL LIFE):
Frankly I say that before I entered a Christian, I myself have confronted by questions that arise in my heart: "I'm sure you enter heaven? "For there is no certainty in my old religion, which could ensure the safe and if I would die, die must enter heaven. All only Just wondered. When you do this or that and do this and that, soon hopefully into heaven.
Or heaven is, about how the later, enter the lottery can be just like heaven! But in Christianity, Jesus guarantees for sure!
John 3:16 b: ", that whosoever believes in Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. "
Jesus came to earth to offer salvation is certain for humans, because what? He is the Savior.
1. Savior: Jesus Christ, of His name alone signifies Him as "Savior" (Release). Jesus from the Hebrew "Jusa". Jesus from the Arabic "Ja'su" means the release or the Savior. The Savior This has been promised since when human beings fell into sin.
Genesis 3:15 a: "I will hold enmity between thee and the woman This, among the descendants and their descendants. "
Seed of the woman who became an enemy of the snake is Jesus. That the seed will defeat evil and save mankind from sin, from God's punishment. Hence the birth of Jesus to this world is the birth of the Savior.
Luke 2:11: "Today the Saviour is born to you, is Christ the Lord, in City of David. "
And this has been promised Savior God since time immemorial, and the only One that can be saved!
Isaiah 43:11: "I, I am God and there is no savior besides Me."
Hosea 13:4: "But I am the Lord your God from the land of Egypt; you except I do not know God, and there is no savior besides Me. "
Right! God only comes to be the Son of Man as Savior humans. Because humans can not save fellow human beings, even just often occurs on the contrary, as the proverb says: "Homo Homini Lupus" one man who would become a wolf to other humans. "Therefore Jesus is the savior of the world.
John 4:42: "We believe, but not anymore because of what you say, because we ourselves have heard Him and we are certain that he really savior of the world. "
I John 4:14: "And we have seen and testify that the Father has sent His Son became the Saviour of the world. "
And Jesus is the Savior for all mankind, here's the offer, which is not limited to anyone who would believe, and also He was not pushy. Why me could be interested and even haqul believe in the Savior is Jesus, my illustrated as follows: "If there are people who invite and I went to the American offer. The person does not doubt the honesty and goodness, but people itself has never gone to America. But now President George Bush, who invited me to visit the U.S.. Of course I personally would choose the president George Bush, because he is Americans, there is also the most powerful. So do go to heaven, I accepted the offer and believe Jesus into heaven! why? Because Jesus came from heaven, He is the owner of heaven, so that by accepting his invitation, I, even every person who believes in Him, will go to heaven!
2. Safety: Salvation offered by Jesus Christ is the salvation which must, in accordance with promise.
John 10:9: "I am the door; whoever went through me, he will survive and he will go in and find pasture. "
Acts 16:31: "Believe on the Lord Jesus Christ and thou shalt congratulations, you and your house. "
And now there's promise in His word which is called the gospel, and gospel is the news of salvation, the gospel is the power of God that saves.
Romans 1:16: "Because I have a strong belief in the Gospel, because the Gospel is the power of God's saving everyone who believes, first of all Jews, but also the Greek. "
Only Jesus who can guarantee to give a definite safety.
Acts 4:12: "And there is no salvation in anyone else except in Him (Jesus), because under under heaven there is no name given to another human being through whom we can be saved. "
Safety is certain this is what made me captive to Jesus Christ, and I like a priceless gem diamonds are gone, because percumalah live in this world happy, without a definite guarantee of safety. And after I definitely enjoy the safety that is the life I find rest, peace. Disappear all my worries and anxieties were, whether I would go heaven or not. But now with all the guarantees given by Lord Jesus, then I am sure together He's in heaven when I called someday!
About the doctrine of "new birth", then I found in the gospel this lesson, since I have never once heard and know. Apparently doctrine of new birth is the key of life of the Christian faith! No wonder! My first wish was always to live holy lives in goodness, but in fact can not, due to the nature of sin that ruled my life. But life in Christ, we become "new creations", therefore we should born again.
John 3:3: "Jesus answered, He said:" I tell you the truth if one is not born again, he can not see the kingdom of God. " Born again, born of the Spirit means.
John 3:5-6: "Jesus replied:" I tell you the truth if one is not born of water and the Spirit, he can not enter into Kingdom of God. What was born of the flesh is flesh, and what born of the Spirit is spirit.
We have been born into this world in the form of meat, but our spirits have not born again, because our spirit is dead since Adam fell into sin. How can so that our spirits are born again?
1. With Faith and baptized Mark 16:16: "Whoever believes and is baptized shall be saved, but whoever who does not believe will be condemned. "
John 7:38: "Those who believe in me, as we are told by the Book Sacred: From inside his heart shall flow streams of living water. "
II Corinthians 5:17: "So if anyone is in Christ, he is a creation new: the old has gone, the new has come. "
Babtisan means abandon our old way of life, turn off the "ego" or "I" we, and the new life in Christ, living in the mastery of the Holy Spirit.
2. Life in the Spirit: A long life is to live in the flesh.
Galatians 5:19-21a: "The act has real meat, which are: fornication, uncleanness, lust, idolatry, sorcery, enmity, strife, jealousy, anger, self-interest, pencideraan, spirit-breaking, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and so forth. "
Meanwhile, new life is alive in the Holy Spirit mastery, and berbuahkan life of the Spirit, namely:
Galatians 5:22-25: "But the fruit of the Spirit are: love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness weakness, self-mastery. There is no law against these things. And those who are KristusYesus have crucified the flesh with its passions and desire, if we are living by the Spirit, let us be guided by the Spirit. "
Means that mastering a new life was no longer "ego" or "I" it, but the spirit God is enthroned in the hearts, within all life, life daily. So that control his life rather than "me" again, but Christ, because "I" was already crucified, dead, in babtisan, and now that you live is Christ.
Galatians 2:19 b-20: ", so I live for God, I have been crucified with Christ, but I'm alive, but no longer I who live, but Christ lives in me. And the life which I now live in the flesh I live by faith in the Son of God, who loved me and gave himself for me. "
And a new life, there is a change in Christ, it changes nothing at once, and there is a gradual, and it is the work of the Spirit of God, the mystery Divine.
Little I testified about this new birth, which I experience personally, when I repented and baptized, I was not born yet totally new, that is "ego" I am still master of my life. Only when in my custody feel there are changes that total by the Holy Ghost, born 100 percent. so my old was dead, but now that you live is Christ.
Colossians 3:5 a: "That's why you turn off in worldly things."
Colossians 3:10: ", and has imposed new ongoing human updated to obtain the right knowledge in the image of his Maker. "
That's the lesson for me in custody. It is my spiritual prison consider the school to educate my God. So it is wrong if they think that with prolonged arrest me could change my Christian faith, because of the faith to believe it comes from God, then even my Christian faith increasingly stepped-up!
II Corinthians 4:16: "Therefore we do not lose heart, but although human outwardly we are wasting, yet inwardly we are being in the Update of the day to day. "
A case of this new birth is a spiritual matter, should be with the spiritual eye well then we can understand it, and blessed are those whose eyes spiritual may be opened by the Lord.
I Corinthians 2:15-16: "But the spiritual man judge all things, but he itself is not judged by others. Cause: "Who has known the mind God, so that he can advise him? "But we have the mind of Christ."
Love in the doctrine of the Christian religion is preaching center occupies in the word of God!
I Corinthians 13:13: "This is the third stay this case, namely faith, hope and love, and, most of which is love. " For by the love of God as well, then the human participant safety, life eternal, and therefore the manifestation of the Christian faith is in loving others humans.
Galatians 5:6: "Because for people who are in Christ Jesus thing circumcised or uncircumcised does not have anything meaningful, just faith works by love. "
Galatians 5:13: "Brethren, ye have been called for independence. But do not use it as an opportunity for independence living in sin, but rather serve one another by love. "
For the love of God is first, then the trust might receive salvation.
John 3:16: "For God so loved the world that He gave his only Son, that whosoever believes Him shall not perish but have everlasting life. " God's love is unlimited, and very large, and because God first first loved us, then we can love and have a new love.
I John 4:19: "We love because God first loved us."
Because of that obligation as a Christian to manifest the love of God that the attitude of everyday life. Therefore, if the church provides material aid or social action, this is not in order to change the faith of those who were assistance, but to implement the teachings of love, and performs God's love to mankind anyone without favoritism, because God love the whole world.
E. Evangelism:
Evangelism is a necessity in the Christian doctrine, because It is a commandment of God who can not bargain, in accordance with Gospel of Matthew 28:18-20 as follows:
"Jesus approached them and said:" to me has been given all authority in heaven and on earth. Therefore go and make disciples of all nations and babtislah them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, and teaching them do everything I have commanded you. And lo, I am with you always until the end of time. "
Therefore Christianity is the religion or religious missionary da'wa, which has Safety obligations for preaching the gospel to the world. However worthy Note that this is not the Christianization, for evangelism containing mean of three parts, namely:
a. Information: Provides information and news about the Christian faith, about road safety given to anybody, so that people knowing that Jesus is the savior of the world.
b. Persuasion: Answering any questions from anyone who wants to ask or questioning of Jesus Christ that, according to what is in Bible.
c. Education: educate God's people in carrying out God's teachings.
This is certainly no Christianization, because to become a Christian or believe Jesus should not be imposed, not the result of human occupation, not also results of operations of an evangelist or pastor, but it is God's work, through Holy Spirit to change hearts His chosen people to be saved!
So what causes so I'm interested in Christian doctrine, as I've explained before, for a picture that I really interested in Christianity because of his teachings can I receive in all things, and personally this is my choice! Many people thought was impossible, I can trust the Lord Jesus, if look at my background, but this is the fact that what considered impossible by man, but if God wills, not Nothing is impossible for Him!
Luke 16:27: "Jesus said:" What is impossible with men is possible with The Lord. "
