I am new to the board but thought I would pass along a way to evangelize Muslims. I was surfing on youtube.com and noticed that there is a lot of Islamic and Jihadist videos on there. I have begun to post prayers in the comments sections of the videos. The prayers usually pray for the conversion of Muslims and for them to find the way to the Truth. While the prayers are kind and loving their content definitely shows that they are directed towards Muslims and the false faith that they are following. I have gotten several replies to these prayers from Muslims either insulting me or Catholic beliefs. I lovingly respond to these comments by explaining what Catholic beliefs are on certain subjects (e.g. Trinity, role of Mary) and how Islam is not the way. I don’t know what effect this has had but I think it is like planting seeds. Perhaps someone coming along might see my prayer or the dialogue and begin to question their life as a Muslim. It is similar to distributing pamphlets.
I think this is a way to get Catholic beliefs out in the public forum and to try to save the souls of Muslims. I believe Converting Muslims, especially in Arab countries, to Catholicism will have a great effect on the war against global jihad. Even more than military action.
I just thought I’d pass this along and get your input. Let me know if you have any other ideas along this line for evangelizing Muslims.
I would also welcome recommendations from you Muslims out there how I can better convert you guys and save your souls.
Here is an example prayer that usually gets a lot of response:
I pray that Muslims will have a full revelation of the true God and His loving character.I pray against the fear that influences many Muslims and that Muslims will also understand that God desires for everyone to know Him as children and not as slaves. I pray for Muslim’s to get saved.I also pray that they will experience God’s total forgiveness and thus be able to forgive others. Finally I pray that they would know the assurance of salvation through Jesus, something Islam can never offer them.
