I can tell this thread is gonna bomb with 0 replies but ill try anyway

This is beyond the shit I had as a teenager. I am in an extreme religious crisis. Born and raised Muslim (Egyptian which is 15%Christian. Living in the US). I. I start seriously thinking about converting to Christianity. Yet I still hang on to Islam. I probably read the Quran and the Bible more than 3 times each. On top of that I cant consult with any family members because of obvious reasons.(Extreme tension among me and my parents ruining my relationship indefinitly). If I become Christian. How will I tell them? It will ruin the family. Do I just lie my whole life? Religion or not, how can I live a life cut off from my parents socially? I have no idea where to go from here.

If you become a christian, you cannot lie about it. The bible specifically highlights people who die for their religion, who suffer, who are made slaves, ect.. Self sacrifice is VERY important. If you lie about being a Christian, you will be spitting in the face of God.

That said, if you abstain from converting just because you don't want your family mad at you, you are once again spitting in the face of God.

There are few good options here. Personally, I recommend you convert to orthodoxy. It's the most true to the bible, and unlike Catholicism, its doesn't believe in Papal supremacy (whatever the pope says is law). This way you can be a christian without having to believe that animals have souls, that gay people should marry, ect.

Good luck, anon. Sending prayers. Know that God is by your side, dude.

Pray that the Jesus Christ, the Son of God, will be with you and give you strength. Have an open heart and lay all your worries before God, He will be with you so have faith in Him.

I'd suggest converting at a supportive congregation that you trust and which embodies the holy spirit (has the fruits of the spirit). From there have faith that God will be the bulwark in your life against any hardships that might come. Your parents depending on who they are may seek to prosecute you, so having the support of your brothers and sisters in christ, and God on your side, should help you to withstand that storm when it comes. Know that the world may hate you because it hated Christ first. Its better to have lived a life of earnest faithfulness to God than to have lived a lie. It will be hard, your family might hate you, there will be hardship. Pull through, thousands of your brothers and sisters in christ have suffered worse hardships for loving God than familial excommunication. Things may get extreme or violent so be prepared to find an ex-muslim group or other places to find safety and shelter if it gets very bad.

Pray to God, find christians to pray for you, and have faith that God will be with you in all things. Trust in the Lord.

I hope this helped.
God be with you.

"Blessed are those who are persecuted because of righteousness, for theirs is the kingdom of heaven. Blessed are you when people insult you, persecute you and falsely say all kinds of evil against you because of me. Rejoice and be glad, because great is your reward in heaven, for in the same way they persecuted the prophets who were before you." - Matt 5:10-12
