I am a former Wahabbi Muslim who was born into a Muslim family and was raised as a Muslim in Saudi Arabia. All of my life in Saudi I grew up as a very devout Muslim follower who adhered and applied the teachings of Islam into every aspect of my life. These teaching included the belief that Islam is the final religion on earth; that it is the only acceptable religion to God; that it is the way to Heaven; that those who do not accept Islam as their faith are doomed to go to hell and their work and worship will not save them unless they accept Allah as their god and Muhammad as his messenger; that salvation for the Muslims is by work and it is never guaranteed except for those who are willing to die in the name of Allah; that Muslims are superior to all others; that all non-Muslims are considered infidels, this includes Christians; that Christ is only a human and a prophet sent by Allah; that He is not God or the Son of God; that He was never crucified, never died on the Cross, and never resurrected from the dead; and that He was ascended to Heaven to be saved from His persecutors and will come back again at the end times to restore Islam as the true religion of Allah, to destroy the cross, to kill the anti-Christ, and to convert Christians to Islam. But the most compelling thing I grew up learning was to HATE all of those who do not worship Allah; who do not follow Muhammad; and disbelieve in Islam; including Christians and Jews. Simply put, I was an enemy of Christ.
"And I will give them one heart, and put a new spirit within them And I will take the heart of stone out of their flesh and give them a heart of flesh, that they may walk in My statutes and keep My ordinances and do them Then they will be My people, and I shall be their God." – Ezekiel 11:19, 20
Matt. 5:14-16 – "You are the light of the world … so let your light shine before men in such a way that they may see your good deeds, and glorify your father in heaven."
"For God so loved the world that he gave his one and only Son, that whoever believes in him shall not perish but have eternal life." – John 3:16
