ISIS jihadi sees Jesus in dream, converts to Christianity

In March, apologist Nabeel Qureshi told The Christian Post dreams are significant to Muslims:

“In Muslim cultures, generally speaking, people don’t see themselves as being able to commune with God. Communion is a very Christian concept and the idea that Christ has torn down the veil — in a lot of cultures the veil is still up. In Islam, for example, people don’t expect to have God talk back to them personally, as the Holy Spirit isn’t living in them. They ask God for guidance through dreams; that’s like the one way that Muslims expect to hear from God,” Qureshi explained.

“For someone to reach out and ask, ‘God, can you tell me about you?’ Or, ‘If you’re Jesus, can you show me a dream?’ That’s not strange at all… That’s kind of what Muslims do,” he added.

  • Um, okay.

    Does this mean he will stop killing people now?

    • DavidinNorthBurnaby

      Not if you ask MSNBC. He’ll just join all the Christian terrorists killing people. :rolleyes

    • On Sundays.

    • No idea. The story lacks important details.The difference in notions of divine communion between Islam and Christianity interests me, though.

        But one wonders what the life expectancy will be for that ex-jihadi convert.

        Man bites dog.

      • Yesterday, I caught parts of an interview of a man who converted from Islam to Christianity. What he has to say about the theology of both shows how Mohammad just took snatchets of existing religions and did his own thing.

        It is a part of Islam that makes sense. They see anthropomorphizing the Godhead as a bad idea. God doesnt go round rewarding this or that and speaking to individuals. No point in trying to curry favour by doing random stuff. Think Douglas Adams and Church of God the Utterly Indifferent. It also goes to the aversion to graven images and idolatory. Jihadis get around this by placing more emphasis on self defence. Taqqia is a dispensation where lying is OK under direct mortal threat. It was only in the 70’s the Wahabbis turned all this stuff upside down.

    It must have been an evil zionist Jinn which tricked him in his sleep!

  • Seneca III

    They’re all bloody insane, the lot of them.

  • just a thought

    The Jewish Sages tell us that dreams are 1/60 prophecy. Of course they are 59/60 utter nonsense, which I’m guessing may have been their point.

    If this story is true there have been similar events to this in history.

    I don’t know about the guy there talking about but Nabeel is as legit as it gets. He’s a member of which is something very dear to me.
