Amazing! There are a community of Christians in the darkest parts of our world. I thought the Muslims killed all of you off by now. You guys must feel like you're living in the days of the disciples over there.

Even if the worst happens, you can only go to heaven, and most USA Christians believe that the Bible suggests that all of the faithful who have died will return with Christ when he comes again.

many westerners think all muslims are ARABS.. they not realise that majority of Muslims in world are not ARABS at all but are Asian descendents. Indonesia is prime example. Pakistan. another

Arabs are from Middle east and while Islam started there it is now everywhere in world and is fastest growing religion in many countries.

So we have a forum for Arabs now. interesting ......

Paul went to Arabia and stayed there for 3 years before going on his missionary journeys in the mediteranean. God taught him there and some of the very first gentile christians were arabs.

see Galatians 1:17

Islam began much later around the 7th century

I think ppl need to learn some history and geography of the Middle East before assuming that all arabs are muslims, for a lot of arabs, Islam has been imposed on them. For those living under sharia law, it must be hard though there are many secret believers in Jesus

From what I have learned, there are a lot of Christians in Syria and Gaza, around 1/10 Syrians are Christian. :) Many have decended from Arabic folks, or other Middle Eastern races. I kinda like history and human culture by the way.

Socially, the stronger influences the weak, and if we consider that Ismail is strong because of his civilized roots, it is assumed that he will teach the Bedouins his Aramaic language to spread it in the desert, but it did not happen.. The Aramaic language was actually spread in the desert, but not in Mecca at the time, but in the desert of the Levant and Iraq, it was not spread in Mecca except After the era of migrations, as we will see shortly, and historically, no language can be published without a political or religious authority or the efforts of educated people with writings and alphabets. ..

The Arabs are of Sami (Aribo) origin. They were the Bedouins of the Syrian, Iraqi and Jordanian deserts. They migrated to the peninsula to the south in three waves:

The first batch: upon the Babylonian attack against Jerusalem in the 6th century BC. AD, and these were Jews who inhabited Yathrib, Yemen, Najran, Taima and Petra, and these immigrants are the first to establish urban settlements in the desert.

The second batch: When Alexander the Macedonian attacked and then the Seleucid invasions in the Hellenistic era, especially the battle of "Anthochius IV" against the Jews, and these were less..they went to the gathering centers of the first batch.

The third batch: When the Roman Titus attacked the temples of Jerusalem and demolished the Temple of Solomon in the year 70 AD, and these were large Jewish and Christian groups, at that time the Roman state was not a believer, but the pagan religion was the republic of rule

Arabs are descendants of Ishmael.
Muslims are people who follow the religion of Islam.

To answer your title question no. Not only there are non-Arabic-speaking Muslim peoples like Turks, Persians or Indonesians, but most of the Arabic-speaking peoples are non-Arabs integrated into the Arabic culture.
There are a community of Christians in the darkest parts of our world. I thought the Muslims killed all of you off by now.
Another big chunk of them also left their countries and established in the West. But still many remain in their lands. I certainly stand with them.
most USA Christians believe that the Bible suggests that all of the faithful who have died will return with Christ when he comes again.
Doesn't mean this is necessarily true. And most Christians in the Muslim world are Catholic or Orthodox anyway, so this pre-millennial stuff is foreign to them.
From what I have learned, there are a lot of Christians in Syria and Gaza, around 1/10 Syrians are Christian. :) Many have decended from Arabic folks, or other Middle Eastern races. I kinda like history and human culture by the way.
In Lebanon it's even around 3-4/10.
