Why Are So Many Muslim Refugees in Europe Suddenly Finding Jesus?

Whether out of conviction or convenience, thousands of migrants in Europe are converting to Christianity.

AMSTERDAM — Hundreds of Pakistanis and Afghans have been lining up at a local swimming pool in Hamburg, Germany, to be baptized as Christians. In the Netherlands and Denmark, as well, many are converting from Islam to Christianity, and the trend appears to be growing. Indeed, converts are filling up some European churches largely forsaken by their old Christian flocks.

Convenience? Never!

Then again they probably think the Pope is a Muslim.

    Taqiyya to prevent their deportation.

    They didn’t convert they only want to claim they did so if the government tries to deport these illegal invaders they can claim they will be killed as apostates and so need sanctuary.

      Coming out as gay would have the same effect.

      • ed

        that’s one the black illegals use in the uk to save deportation

  • BillyHW

    It’s just more taqqya.

    • tom_billesley

      A public show of conversion is a sure way to block deportation.

    A positive view would be that even after a lifetime of Islamic brainwashing and a lowered IQ from cousin marriage, not every single Muslim out of a billion-plus is an unfixable psycho-killer.

    Hmm. I haven’t convinced myself.

  • Even if they sincerely convert to Christianity, that cannot give them carte blanche to settle in Europe. Arabs Christians are usually more Arab than Christian, sometimes notably so – https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/George_Habash – and anyway there’s more to being European than professing a religion.

      I’m not sure why you’d point out an avowed marxist-leninist as any sort of example of Christianity. There are many “Christians in name only” who believe nothing more about their professed faith than the skewed caricature paraded by the MSM. You are right that the immigration and settlement question has to be decided in the broader political sphere where everyone can participate in the issue. But there are also muslims who have become atheists. it’s certain death if they go back, just like those who have converted.

      • I’m not sure why you’d point out an avowed marxist-leninist as any sort of example of Christianity.

        I didn’t. I suggested that Habash is probably fairly typical of the Arab-Christian mindset. I don’t want to send anyone to his death, I just don’t want Europe to be colonized further.

        It seems to me that what we need to do is to carve out some kind of colony – a Safe Space, if you will – in the Middle East. If we could do that before Europe collapses that would be helpful.

  • It’s depends on which Church they are converting under. If it’s something like the United Church then they’re converting to atheism/Socialism, which is currently allied with Islamism. In other words a convenient political “conversion”. Have to wait and see — don’t want to dismiss the possibility of a genuine Christian revival outright. Although the latter is more likely to occur in the Middle-East because of Christian martyrdom.

    From the article:

    Forced conversions of Muslims and Jews during the Spanish Inquisition were a dark page in Europe’s history.

    But not nearly as dark as the invasion, subjugation, forced conversion, and forced expulsion of the native Spanish population by the Muslim invaders, who had their own inquisitory system. In fact the Spanish Inquisition, which in the centuries it existed, killed about as many people who were killed on 9/11.

    Mustn’t mention that.

    If converting to Jesus gets them more out of reach of the absolute filth that makes up most of the migrant flood from assorted shitholestans, their actions are really rock solid.

    Finally some good news. Pretty hard to Taqiya when the act will brand you an apostate and get you killed such as those 20 men beheaded in Libya.

      If this strategy of denial worked for Obama, it’s good enough for the invaders.

        A tree is known by it’s fruit. Time will tell.

    • New Centurion

      We know there will be false coverts. False or not I agree they are taking a big risk. As a Christian, I would love to believe, in most cases, the conversions are real. We will know the true converts by the “fruits” they produce. I guess we have to overcome our innate nature to see everything from the perspective of fallen man, I struggle with it constantly. Can we not believe, that God orchestrated their exodus out of their country so some of them could hear the Gospel, be saved, and be an influence in their own community?

      • Jabberwokk

        I’ve heard it said by a few pastors that God is clearing out his followers from those lands, who know what may come.

        On the topic of ‘seeing everything from the perspective of fallen man’ I would say yes and no. Some people are so heavenly minded there no earthly good. Until we are dead we still have to deal with the world we have and there is a balance between skepticism and faith, that I believe we must have.

  • Finding Jesus or pretending to find Jesus?

    The last one.

    If it is Taqiyya it won’t work. The EU doesn’t like Christianity and as it is persecuted around the world inevitably the EU will be increasingly persecuting Christianity under the guise of hate laws.
