Rwandan Pastor Forces All 480 Members Of His congregation To Convert To Islam And Change Their Church To A Mosque

RWANDAN clergyman has conducted what is arguably the largest conversion of Christians to Islam when he successfully got all 480 members of his congregation to switch faiths last Tuesday.

In a first such mass conversion of its kind, Pastor Mikdad apparently got all the members of his flock to switch faith.

According to one church members, they all turned up for a church service only to be forced to convert to Islam by their pastor.

In addition, he also got the church converted into a mosque during the radical conversion ceremony that took place on Tuesday August 25.

Apparently, an Islamic cleric had preached to Pastor Mikdad and succeeded in convincing him that Islam was the way to go, making him decide to switch faiths.

Rwanda is a predominantly Christian country but of late, has seen a gradual rise in its Muslim population.

About 56.9% of Rwandans are Roman Catholic, 26% are Protestant, 11.1% are Seventh day Adventist and only 4.6% are Muslim, most of them being Sunni. I

slam started growing in Rwanda after the country’s 1994 genocide as both Catholic and Protestant churches helped to make the killing of about 800,000 people possible by giving moral sanction to the murders.

Churches have longed played ethnic politics themselves, favouring the Tutsi during the colonial period then switching allegiance to the Hutu after 1959, sending a message that ethnic discrimination was consistent with church teaching.

    To me this article looks more like a slander of Christianity and promotion of Islam. “as both Catholic and Protestant churches helped …” – it looks like you have completely missed the point, and have no data. I do not know if this is simply weak and wrong journalism or there is evil intention behind this, but, man, please repent, for your will respond for the loss of souls to God. I pray to God (right now) for His Mercy for you and for all of us (we all need His Mercy.) – Greg.

    This issue of religion needs to be addressed by political leaders because in almost all African countries there is always something out of line hapening each and every single day.Its frustrating to see ..

      Yes and no. Muslims worship a corrupted misunderstood version of God the father. Jews worship only God the father, of which their understanding of whom they call God, is misunderstood. So it depends on how wrong you believe some can be and still vaguely accurate. If I say my president, Barack Obama, is a white woman who dresses as the Stephanie Brown Batgirl, and I vote for Obama… My vote clearly goes to Barack Obama, and who he truly is, I just have a very inaccurate idea of who Obama is. Exchange vote to worship, and president to God, you get the idea? Now here’s the thing..God while does allow us to be wrong to some extent, won’t accept worship that is clearly that wrong. So are the Muslim sinning when they worship? Yes. It just not idolatry or having false gods, it’s just the sin of being completely and utterly wrong and disagreeing with God Himself on His nature. I would say the Muslim concept of God is far closer to the true tribune God of Scripture we Christians worship, then Mormon concept of God. i would argue Mormons commit the sin of polytheism and probably the unnamed sin of making God less awesome than He really is.

    To my dear Christian brothers and sisters, we as Muslims worship the Almighty Creator alone and do not join any others in His worship – not Muhammad, not Jesus, not Adam (peace be upon them), not any other man, object or idea. Nothing.

    This is just as you are commanded in your bible.

    God is God. Pure, exalted above all, apart from the Creation, not bound by the laws He made for the createion, though in control, aware of and sustaining all.

    He is the Creator, not the Created.

    This is all we say to you. Worship none but the Almighty, Dieu in French, God in English, Allah in Arabic.

    If I say God needed to beget (give birth) to a son, to sacrifice him to save His creatures from their sins, have I spoken truly about my Creator?

    If I say He, the Almighty became man and ate food and did the unspeakable things we do as humans, have I spoken truly about my gracious Master?

    How can I take His creation as God alongside him after he commands me to not worship others even in my own scripture (The Bible)?

    Putting aside all my personal biases, my cultural heritage, as the soul who will return to His Owner, alone and helpless, let me ask – Who has corrupted their understanding of the pure, exalted Gracious, Almighty Creator – The Muslim, or the Christian?

    Any “evidence” for the potentially libelous “forced” conversion, or is that the reporter’s personal bias being allowed to seep into professional journalism?

    God is one in one. It is not becoming of God to have three forms or parts or son or daughter or wife. God is independent and all powerful. Islam teaches the absolute unity of God. Christianity has been corrupted by Romans after 300 years of the death of Jesus (peace be upon him) into the idea of trinity, which is similar to Greek polytheism.
    African are increasingly reverting to the true religion of Abraham, Moses, and Jesus as revealed to Prophet Muhammad. They are finding the true religion pure and simple in Islam, as they learn about how the white man corrupted religion and made a blond white man as God for black people to worship. It is time to wake up to the truth of Islam and the corruption of the Hellenized Christianity.
    All praise due to God.

    Father God, creator of heaven and earth. You are mighty and worthy to be praised. I pray that in your infinite grace and mercy, you reveal truth to the spiritually blind of who you are, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. That those who believe otherwise, would genuinely and feverently seek truth and pray that you reveal yourself to them. I pray that you would soften their hearts and remove pride and doubt, so they may hear your voice clearly. I pray that you would bless them Lord as they seek you, that they would learn of and experience your unfailing love, and that they would choose to follow you and accept your free gift of salvation and make you the Lord of their lives. I thank you Lord for you are a faithful God and your word never returns void. I pray these things in the powerful wonderful name of JESUS. Amen!
