I have heard it said of Islam, over and over again and again, time after time that Islam just "makes sense" and is so clearly logical, etc. etc.I would hazard that matters of faith are not necessarily at all subject to logic or sense. Belief in something might "feel right" even though it is demonstrably absurd or untrue, and that is enough of an attraction for many, who are additionally often unwilling to critically examine those beliefs for fear of losing their faith, which they value.
My question to you (all of you) is that if you believe what you just said, and what I have read time and again from other Muslim missionaries, than how do you explain ONE SINGLE Muslim converting to Islam?!
Furthermore, it seems that most humans have a hard time believing in something unseen, incomparable and ultimately incomprehensible - people love to give divine attributes to humans, almost-humans or various statues or images of beings to which they can more easily relate.
Lastly, there seems to be a great attraction in the promise of guaranteed salvation through faith alone. Many denominations of christianity promise a "free pass" on judgement day for those who believe that Jesus will save them. Christians fervently cling to this conviction, possibly because it spares them the hard work of taking responsibility for their own actions and establishing an honest relationship with their Creator.
