Admin: This isn't a plug for Christianity by Sharia Watch but we believe it provides a stark example of the differences in basic values between the two 'faiths'.

In a room in a secret location, somewhere in the Middle East, 12 young Christians sit in front of a whiteboard in a trauma care session led by an Open Doors’ counselor. Five years ago, she was a devout Muslim—when she remembers herself in that period of her life, she calls herself a “fanatic” for Islam. She was also hiding a secret: She was desperately afraid of so many things. She would harm herself, even to the point of considering suicide. She would lay awake at night, terrified of what would happen to her when she died.
