An Imam and Sheikh have denounced Islam and received Jesus Christ at their personal Lord and savior during a church service led by Pastor Stephen Waiswa of Bible Evangelism Ministries.
In a statement issued Sunday, 4th March, 2018, Pastor Waiswa who fronts radical gospel crusades in Bwaise and Queen’s way at the Clock Tower – Kampala, identified the Imam and Sheikh as Juma and Sadik respectively.
“Muslims who are preaching lies at Queen’s way are loosing every day. In stead of Muslims going to the mosque, they are coming to church,” the preacher said, then later shared a video of the new converts articulating the Salvation Prayer.
Pastor Stephen gave all the glory to Jesus, and noted that his gatherings have seen mega transformation.
He said the new converts are among those that used to “abuse believers at Clock tower.”
“Thank you Lord, bring one by one,” he remarked.
‘Gospel’ debates at Clock Tower
Like Pastor Stephen Waiswa, Raymond Kazibwe, 30, a lawyer and host of Akabinkano k’Ebitabo (Battle of the Books) on Kingdom FM, recently told media he has been debating with Tabliqhs for 10 years.
“We choose a controversial topic. You cannot talk about how to go to heaven. Any fool knows that. The question is; who is the way to heaven – Jesus or Mohammad?” he said.
Adding, “there is a belief that the Bible and the Koran are similar, but each has a different name for God. Are we worshipping the same God? If so, then who is worshiping Him wrongly?”
To start a debate, according to Kazibwe, a Muslim will shout, “Yokaana Essuula Taano!” (John 5). Or, an evangelist can say, “Allaha yuhibbu alttawwabeena wayuhibbu almutatahhireena.” (Surely God loves those who turn to Him in sincere repentance, and He loves those who cleanse themselves). Passersby will stop.
These are some of the interesting events that transpire at the makeshift stages, and for some, the purpose is to get converts and not to show off one’s knowledge.
