    I stumbled across your website totally by accident I googled "what if I turn to islam" and it was the 1st hit.

    I have been what I think is a "Good Christian" most of my life. I've tried to help those whom I can, forgive people who have done me wrong in some way. But more and more I feel that the focus of Christianity is not a relationship with God, but with just being a good person and I just don't feel that that's all there is to life. Without a relationship with God, then you're basically directionless in life, in my opinion.

    I am going to start reading the Quran this evening, and will pray deeply about this. Also I will be pestering you all with questions. :)

    Take care and be well.

    Thank you for the warm welcome :) I always was a little intimidated that I was named after an apostle, but I've since decided that there was a reason for this name. And yes I agree most Christians follow St. Paul instead of the teachings of the Christ. That was my beginning of becoming disillusioned with Christianity.

    Welcome Matt!

    I believe you have the right skeptical mind to searching for the Truth and I pray that inshallah (God willing) you will find it. In Islam, work without faith is dangerous just as faith without work is too. Faith & action work congruent with one another, Islam makes this crystal clear.

    Hope you find TTI as a beneficial source for learning and interacting with Muslims worldwide.

    Asalaam Alayquam! (God's Peace and Blessings Be Upon You!)
    Hi Matt,
    I'm new to TTI and Islam (converted about 10 months ago...)
    Just wanted to say if you have any new-muslim type questions, feel free to ask!
    (I always felt awkward asking seasoned muslims the simplest of things!)
    Anyway, good luck!
    :)
