A Kuwaiti royal prince has become a believer in Jesus Christ and says that if he is killed because of an audio recording he made about his decision, he believes he will meet Christ face-to-face, ASSIST News Service reports. Prince Abdollah Al-sabah, who comes from a royal family that currently governs Kuwait, said in an recording on a Christian Arabic TV station that he had recently denounced his Islamic faith and become a Christian. He introduced himself and stated: "First of all, I totally agree with the distribution of this audio file and I now declare that if they kill me because of this audio file, then I'll go into the presence of Jesus Christ and be with Him for all eternity. I'm satisfied with whatever they do to me, because the truth in the Bible has guided me to the right way." Islam is the official religion in Kuwait, and almost the entire population is Muslim, with Christians making up only 4 percent.
