    My Journey to Islam - The Story of a Former Christian Youth Minister - Joshua Evans


    by xicg_1

    Is Jesus Christ God or just a prophet? Did He ever claim to be God? Why did I choose Islam? Why I'm no longer a Christian? Surrey Islamic Society hosted an event entitled "My Journey to Islam" with Yvonne Ridley and Yusha Evans (Formerly known as Joshua Evans) as part of their Islamic Awareness Week 2011. Brother Joshua was raised by his grandparents in Greenville, South Carolina in a very strict Methodist home. In his teenage years, he became very involved in the church and was studying at a small Bible college in his hometown with the intention of eventually enrolling in Bob Jones University. He was learning to read the Bible in Hebrew and Greek and was very interested in textual criticism of the Bible. It was during these years of intense Bible study that he read the Bible cover to cover a half a dozen times. In doing so, he realized there were many inconsistencies and contradictions. He realized the Bible was not the inerrant Word of God as he had always been taught. He eventually left Christianity and searched for the truth about God elsewhere.
