One Christian Man Stands Up For What He Believes...

At the risk of death, as clerics, the leaders of Muslims in that nation, scream and rant for his death, one man declares that he converted to Christianity. This is just an amazing feat, as this man get worldwide attention, and the bloodthirsty frothing at the mouth Muslim clerics cry out for his death. The reason that they want his death, is that it must be difficult, particularly after the barbarous Taliban, to keep people satisfied with the daily torturous life that 7th century Islam offers their people. These words of hope...
Andaryas runs a collection of Christian websites in Afghanistan's Dari-Persian tongue as well as daily radio programs and a weekly television program.

He is in daily contact with individuals in his homeland, and has been reporting for several years about the risks faced by Afghan Christians -- all converts from Islam and thus considered apostates worthy of death, according to Islamic law (shari'a).

He said one of the websites, which carries news on Afghan Christians, typically drew about 300 unique visitors every month, but since the Rahman story emerged it had attracted half a million visitors.

The number of emails received also has risen enormously, and 13 people are now tasked with responding to them.

The majority of emails are negative and many are abusive, coming from Muslims who felt that Rahman and other apostates -- including Andaryas himself -- should be severely punished.

But there also are many messages of support, he said.

And then there are emails coming from Afghans wanting to know more about Christianity, asking where they can get a Bible in the Dari or Pashto language, or sharing the news that they had become believers in Jesus Christ.

Among the most stirring messages are those from Afghan Muslims marveling about a faith for which a man was willing to die and wanting to study the Bible further.

"I strongly believe God is using this situation for His glory," Andaryas said. "One man's bold step has shaken the world."
Shaken the world he has, particularly of the Muslim cleric in Afghanistan. These bloodthirsty clerics just cannot seem to remember that we worship the same God and we are all children of Abraham.
