ALIVE!
  • A Muslim in Africa was converted to Christ, his
    friends asked him why.
  • "Well, it's like this. Suppose you were going
    down the road and suddenly the road forked in two
    directions, and you didn't know which way to go
    and there at the fork were two men,
    one dead and one alive.
    Which one would you
    ask the way to go?"

44
Dr. Kali Charan Chatterjee
  • It has often been asked of me why I renounced
    Hinduism and became a disciple of Christ....The
    doctrine which decided me to embrace the
    Christian religion and make a public profession
    of my faith was the doctrine of the vicarious
    death and sufferings of Christ. I felt myself a
    sinner, and found in Christ one who had died for
    my sins - paid the penalty due my sins...this was
    the burden of the thought of my heart, Christ has
    died, and in doing so, paid the debt which we
    could never pay.

45
Dr. David Rahbar
  • Muslim scholar, wrote a letter to friends to
    explain why he had become a Christian.
  • ...In our search for the truly worshipable, we
    must therefore look in human history for a man
    who loved, who loved humbly like the poorest, who
    was perfectly innocent and sinless, who was
    tortured and humiliated in literally the worst
    manner, and who declared his continued
    transparent love for those who had inflicted the
    worst of injuries on him. If we do find such a
    man, He must be the Creator-God Himself. For if
    the Creator-God Himself is not that Supremely
    suffering and Loving Man, then the Creator God is
    provenly inferior to that Man. And this cannot
    be...

46
Comic B.C.

    Not to stay!

    reservations!
