Fuller seminar asked 750 former Muslims to fill out an extensive questionnaire about how they came to decide to become a Christian. The respondents were from 30 countries and 50 ethnic groups, representing every major region of Islam. They were asked to rank the relative importance of different influences that brought them to Christ. What they reported to have had the most influence on them to reject Islam, and all that means, and come to Christ was the lifestyle of Christians. They said things like there was no gap between profession and practice. They treat women as equals. They loved others rather than being unloving toward people who were different. The most powerful witness to people entrenched in the Islamic way of life was a consistent Christian witness.

(From a sermon by Ed Sasnett, Reasons to Stay, 6/23/2010)
