How Priest Jason Found Islam

How Priest Jason Found Islam

I was what is known as a worker-priest, which means I had a job at the same time as I was doing my ministry. I had changed from working in corporate America to working in a behavioral health agency. My post was down the street from a Masjid. I thought that this was my chance to learn about Islam for my interfaith relations.

Islam Is Simple: God is God

Islam Is Simple: God is God

I see Islam as a religion that came to clarify the errors of human beings who changed the original word of God to fit their interests. Islam is simple: God is God.

The main thing that Islam has brought in my life is serenity. I feel it all the time. It’s a sort of deflating of a balloon that’s about to burst. "It’s ok… you are safe, you are secure and you can get through all of this without all of the drama that you used to have… that got you nowhere".

It Was Important For Me to Have Jesus

It Was Important For Me to Have Jesus

It was very important for me to have Jesus. I love the stories in the Bible, and then when they told me that he’s a Prophet of God, he’s better than us, he’s a perfect human being… that really set proper in my heart. Then the Quran, being an owner’s manual, a way to live, it was amazing because I was looking for structure.

Would Islam Make Me A Terrorist?

Would Islam Make Me A Terrorist?

I started to become concerned and worried that if I become Muslim, am I going to be a terrorist? Am I going to fight and become like one of these guys? I didn’t know that anything about suicide bombing or any of these stuff, or any proofs that some of these people use…

It All Started with Stereotypes about Islam

It All Started with Stereotypes about Islam

At first I did not like to read Quran, but the Muslims I knew, I took them as my example of what a Muslim is like and saw that the stereotype I had been raised with just didn’t fit. I wondered how I knew Bible was right and Quran was wrong, especially when so much was similar between them, they seemed to originate from the same source.
