Wave of Conversion - Poche - 10-02-2015

Thousands of Muslim refugees have sought Baptism after arriving in Germany, the Italian daily Il Giornale reports.

In Berlin, Rev. Gottfriend Martens reports that over 600 Muslims have been baptized in his Lutheran Church of the Holy Trinity; 50 are now preparing for Baptism in November. In Hannover, a single parish reports 2,000 baptisms since 2008. Pastors say that the demand for Baptism is growing as the flood of refugees increases.

Some observers have questioned whether Muslims seek to become Christians in hope of obtaining more favorable treatment in their quest for citizenship. For legal purposes, however, religious affiliation does not affect immigration decisions in Germany.

If any Muslim is converting because they think they'll get better treatment as Christians, they're way wrong. The opposite is the case. The more Christian you are, the less respect you'll get.
