And converting. Theologically, this makes sense, in a way. Stick with me here.
God isn't trying to trick you into going to hell. He wants you in heaven.
Most muslims live in areas where Christians are killed, or driven out. Therefore, many muslims haven't been exposed to Christianity in any form other than through what their satanic imams tell them.
Recall that one of the great saints, Saint Paul, was first Saul, who persecuted Christians all over the Middle East. It was on the way to Damascus that the Lord spoke to him. In short, God spoke to the person to hated Him, while that person was in the middle of a campaign against Him.
Could Jesus be speaking directly to the muslims who he wants redeemed? I see no reason why it could not happen.
It could also possibly be just another lie from people who are allowed to lie if it benefits them, so take everything with a grain of salt. Just because it's possible doesn't mean it is so.
