U.K. Minister Brings Muslims to Christ

Ad Feedback

In the United Kingdom, some Christians have been prevented from preaching the gospel to Muslims.

Rev. Noble Samuel's Asian gospel program brings the message of Christ to Muslims, Hindus, and Sikhs of all nationalities living in London.

For an hour this Pakastani-born minister teaches from the Bible and then opens up the phones for questions and discussion.

"So we are actually sharing the good news and we want to teach them the basic doctrine of the Bible," he said.

He's been reaching the city's Asian community for the past six years, and many have come to faith in Christ.

"Through my ministry, I don't want to mention the names of these people but they received Jesus Christ. But it's a large community Hindu, Sikh and Muslim community and they're members of my church and they received Jesus Christ," he added.

But not everyone is happy with Rev. Samuel's program.

A caller said Christians are hypocrites for not following the Bible.

When Rev. Samuel pointed out that many Muslims don't follow the Quran, the man became angry and threatened to kill him.

The next day, Samuel was attacked as he drove to work.

"I was giving him directions he hold my hair and grab my hair and he very furious and he trying to smash my head with steering wheel, but because I wearing seatbelt he not successful with that," Samuel said.

Three men tried to drag him from the car, but they couldn't get the door open.

They took his Bible and laptop and then issued a final warning.

"Then these three boys they left that place and they said 'if you go back to the studio we'll break your legs,'" Samuel said.

The police are investigating the attack, but one officer said Rev. Samuel might have offended them with his public display of faith.

"Some of the policeman said maybe it's because you wearing the cross -- is say it symbol of love and it their problem," he added.

Libbly Blaxall of the Christian Legal Centre says Christians have been discouraged from ministering to Muslims in the U.K.

There have been many such instances. For example in June 2008, two Christian ministers were told that they could not preach in a so-called Muslim area of the city of Birmingham.

As for Rev. Samuel, he immediately went back on TV after the attack.

And he said he'll keep preaching, no matter what the consequences.
