In this video, Rev. Georges Houssney and Elias, both of whom were raised in Muslim societies in the Middle East, share some advice for those who are considering leaving Islam. First, Houssney lets you know that you are in good company. Millions are leaving Islam: in fact, his statistics show that 350 million Muslims have left Islam in the past 15 years! Terrorism and other harsh results of Islamic laws are pushing many people into leaving Islam.
For many, the steps in leaving Islam are to become irreligious, and then atheist. Islam indoctrinates its devotees that Christians are deceived and live ungodly lives. These thoughts usually keep them from immediately seeking truth in Christianity. Atheism however leaves you empty. But atheism can eventually prepare a person to be more open to other explanations about God than that in Islam.
Houssney and Elias’ advice for leaving Islam is to look for the truth. Ask God to guide you to the truth. The Bible tells us, way back in a book of Moses, Deuteronomy 4:29, that we will find God if we seek him with all our heart. As part of your leaving Islam, seek God, and take a fresh look at the Bible and Christianity!
The Bible tells us that Jesus is the only true way to a relationship with God. Jesus will not leave you empty. He will save you and give you new life! (John 14:6 & 3:16, 2 Corinthians 5:17)
