According to a Fuller Theological Seminary professor, Christianity could be on the rise again in Europe as reports are indicating that Muslim refugees are converting to Christianity. “European churches have struggled for decades to share the Gospel with modern secular Europeans,” Matthew Kaemingk, a professor at the Fuller Theological Seminary in Seattle, Washington, said Monday in an article on Fox News. “They have found Muslim immigrants to be much more open to the message of Christianity.” These latest reports are coming from several European countries that are accepting migrants, including Germany and Austria.
These locations are reporting that Muslim converts are turning to various denominations, both Protestant and Roman Catholic. According to one individual, Kaemingk, whose book Christian Hospitality and Muslim Immigration in an Age of Fear is set to be published this fall, believes that the common European feels their material comforts replace God.”Europeans are wealthy, comfortable, healthy, and powerful,” he said. “In short, they don’t think they need God.” This mirrors what John the revelator wrote to one of the seven churches in Asia in the book of
Revelation Chapter 3:
4 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write, ‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye-salve, that you may see.
