WASHINGTON - A group of North America Evangelical Christians has released a DVD series aiming at proselytizing American Muslims disaffected by the cultural differences and suffering rising hate after Boston marathon bombing.
"Suddenly when they come here they change," Wadi Iskander, a former Muslim from Sudan told CBN on Thursday, May 16, referring to the cultural shift Muslim immigrants face in the US.
"They become very liberal or, when they come here, they change to be fanatic."
Called "Truth Unlocked", the new DVD series is directed at educating Christians on methods of proselytizing Muslims.
The new Christian DVD is a missionary program that provides an educational approach on how to gain the Muslim confidence before trying to Christianize them.
"A man and his wife are welcoming a couple into their home, and the man of the house would extend his hand to shake the hand of the wife, Amani Mostafa, Al Hayat woman's talk show host who is a former Muslim, said.
Instantly she is offended because she's veiled and she's not supposed to be shaking a man's hand. Right there he broke a rule. So, it takes us a while to correct these things," she added.
Though there are no official figures, America is believed to be home to a Muslim community of between six to eight million.
The United States is the world's largest source of Christian missionaries with a reported 46,000 proselytizers worldwide followed by South Korea.
Evangelization by Pentecostal and evangelical missionaries, traditionally eyeing troubled and disaster-stricken Muslim areas, has long angered Muslims.
The missionary problem also instructs evangelicals to target young Muslim kids at schools.
The DVDs "came about with just kids interacting with other Muslim kids within their school and felt very ill-equipped and ignorant towards another culture that had moved in, Tim Clemens, co-producer of "Truth Unlocked," said.
Clemens said a follow-up DVD called, "Far from Home: A Different West," will be available in the near future.
"The big difference is, one is designed for Joe average in the North American pew; the other is designed specifically to give to a Muslim but also a tool to reach Muslims around the globe," Clemens said.
Muslims believe in Jesus as one of the great Prophets of God and that he is the son of Mary but not the Son of God. He was conceived and born miraculously.
In the Noble Qur'an, Jesus is called "Isa". He is also known as Al-Masih (the Christ) and Ibn Maryam (Son of Mary).
As for his crucifixion, Muslims believe that Jesus was not crucified but was lifted up to heaven.
Muslims believe that Jesus will come back to earth before the end of time to restore peace and order, fight the Anti-Christ (Al-Masih Al-Dajjal) and bring victory for truth and righteousness.
The true followers of Jesus will prevail over those who deny him, misrepresent him and reject him.
