Testimony of an Orthodox Christian Who Became a Muslim

This is the testimony of a young Greek man who was raised a nominal Orthodox Christian, contemplated monasticism and came to love the simplicity of the Saints. Having turned into a worldly man in pursuit of gain, his sister converted to Islam in search of simplicity. Inspired by her he also turned to Islam. He left Christianity because of ignorance of his Orthodox Christian Faith and of who God is. He rejected the doctrine of the Holy Trinity because he could not "understand" it, and was attracted to the unity of Allah. I offer this to inspire the need for the proper education of the Faith for our youth. Because they will seek the truth somewhere, if not in Orthodoxy then somewhere else.
