WHY MUSLIM APOSTATES TURN TO ATHEISM


Hilaire Belloc said "Islam is apparently unconvertable. The missionary efforts made by great Catholic orders which have been occupied in trying to turn Mohammedans into Christians for nearly 400 years have everywhere wholly failed...we have had hardly any effect in converting individual Mohammedans..." Hilaire Belloc, The Great Heresies.

An interesting article by
Spengler of the Asia Times seems to answer the WHY of Belloc's statement. He points out that the god of Islam is "all transcendent". He is not subject to the natural law or even his own laws. Everything is random and subject to the whimsy of allah in the mind of a muslim. He controls every minute aspect of the world in accord with nothing other than his own ever-changing and unpredictable will. The arbitrariness of the god of Islam is much closer to atheism than it is to the God of Christianity and Judaism.

God does indeed care what we call Him

St Paul tells us that "Jesus" is
"a name above all names".

And that
"in the name of Jesus, every knee shall bend in Heaven, on earth and in Hell" (Phil.2:10).

Further
"there is salvation in the Name of Jesus and...there is no salvation in any other name except that Name." (Acts 4:12.)

But why is Jesus name so powerful?

Because He is God made man. The incarnation is a mind-boggling concept that is unique to Christianity. That the Creator of Heaven and Earth would actually humble Himself to not only become one of us, but willingly sacrifice Himself to appease the Father for our transgressions is beyond comprehension without
