    I don’t usually say anything unless he mentions it, I never usually go on attack mode, I just defend if he brings up allegations against the Christian faith, that’s all.

    God be with you.

    Have you still never had opportunity to meet with Christian clergy?

    I would be very cautious. You ask many good questions and delve deeply. Please be very aware of the effect the conversations with this Muslim cleric have on you.

    One does not learn about Jesus from the unsaved. Muslims do not Believe Jesus is the son of God, and therefore are not Saved. Learn about Jesus by reading His words and by talking with those who at least know Him as their personal savior. Muslims my claim to know about the kingdom of Heaven, but they will not be there. You are asking directions from one who is eternally lost.

    Islam was created by Satan and relayed to man via Mohammed; a highwayman who became a warlord and was the perfect fit. One might as well go to Satan to learn about Christianity. Nothing an Islamic cleric will tell you about Christianity will have any resemblance to the truth.

    I wouldn't go. Folks can turn on you. I agree with Gurney. Grow, learn, cool your jets, hopefully get out of the country and have the freedom to join a Church later. You're still a kid. God be with you.

    So just to inform everyone, it went well, more peaceful then I thought it would, and he asked me many questions about Christianity and it history to which I replied peacefully. Overall I think it went very well, we both left with a smile on our faces.

    Al Mishi better never emigrate to the United States. He's the kind of guy who'd go to Dodger Stadium wanting to "share" the beauties of the San Francisco Giants. He'd get a pitcher of bear thrown over his head, wedgied, then stabbed in the parking lot.

    Al Mishi, dude, brother, pal, please stop doing this kind of stuff. It may go "well" this time, or the next five times, but there will be a point you cross when you feel too comfy with this guy, and when you cross it, heads are gonna roll. And frankly, your brothers and sisters here at TAW just don't want that happening. Take some advice, man!

    I’m not a person who personally wants to emigrate to the West, I have everything I want and love in the Middle East (Not in Saudi Arabia though), this may seem weird to Christians in the West, but Christians from the Middle East be they Eastern Orthodox, Maronite, Coptic, or Syriac like to stand our ground, we don’t back down or abandon the East where Christianity started.

    I was joking, brother, not serious. I would hope you'd get out of Saudi. that place is nuts. I applaud your courage to stay in the M.E. Youre braver than I am. I spoke with christians in Palestine and Jordan; they are not happy and they have ZERO ability to mission, witness, or share any of their faith. Their communities don't grow, just dwindle, and suffer persecution.
