Expanding the Recommended Reading Section

One of the new books added to the list

When I first started this website back in 2015, I wanted to make a Recommended Reading section.  When I originally made it, I only put a few books on the list and they were very basic.  I’ve learnt a lot more about apologetics dealing with the online community since then.  I now have a better idea about what is important and where focus needs to be put.  I hope that my readers find this helpful.  Here are my recent additions to the list:

The Islamic Jesus by Mustafa Akyol

A Review

Earlier this year, the Turkish Islamic scholar Mustafa Akyol came out with the book The Islamic Jesus: How the King of the Jews Became a Prophet of the Muslims.  The book is interesting, I’ll say that much.  I had meant to read it earlier but other things got in the way.  I picked it up yesterday and finished it today and am now going to share some of my thoughts on the book.

Why Didn’t the Reformation Happen in the East?

Has anyone asked the following question: why didn’t the so called Reformation happen in the East?  Why didn’t it happen in Russia, Serbia, Romania, Greece, Armenia and other Eastern Countries that call themselves Christian.  This is something that I’ve thought about for a long time and I believe that I’ve found the answer.

Judaism vs Zionism…and Donald Trump

Donald Trump has recently announced that America will now recognize Jerusalem as the Capital of Israel.  Also, he has initiated a process where the embassy will be moved to Jerusalem.  This obviously has huge ramifications for the Arab Israeli conflict.  I won’t comment on that here, but I do want to talk about the history of Zionism.

Orwell Would Be Proud of Michael Coren and “Christian” Leftists

To this day, 1984 is one of my favorite works of fiction.  George Orwell certainly knocked it out of the park on this one.  It’s because of having read books like this and studied logic that I know how to see past slippery language. 

The Fall of Michael Coren

Michael Coren is the first person to block me on Twitter.  I’ve been a harsh critic of his.  About four years ago, he endorsed homosexual “marriage” and started attending an Anglican Church since they take a more liberal approach to sodomy.  Of course, the Anglicans of old would consider this to be full blown apostasy but rationality seems to go out the window for enemies of Jesus Christ.

In Defence of Luther and a Challenge to the Rabbis

Luther and the true reformers

Today Protestants and some self-hating Catholics across the globe are celebrating the career of the renegade and apostate monk named Martin Luther.  Being Catholic, I oppose his theology and his career as a “reformer”.  Regardless, many articles have been popping up on the anti-Semitism of Martin Luther.  They say that he paved the way for the holocaust.  Of course when people say this, they often take a shot at the Catholic Church as well saying they were no better.

James White and Reformation History

It’s that time of year again.  It’s nearing October 31 and Dr. White is talking about the reformation.  Ironically, he’s making it less glorious than he’s made it out to be in the past.  A bit odd in my opinion.  He covered several topics a while back.  I want to comment on some of them.  The times are for the video above.

The Great Irony of Surah 4:157

The Crucifixion Of Our Lord Jesus Christ

Anyone who’s familiar with Christian apologetics against Islam knows about Surah 4:157.  It’s the verse in the Quran that forces Muslims to oppose the crucifixion of Jesus Christ.  The verse was “revealed” 600 years after the event that is at the center of the Christian faith. 

Two Saints talk about Sola Scriptura

Arius of Alexandria

On October 31, 2017, Protestants will celebrate the 500th anniversary of the “reformation”.  Truth be told, it’s only the anniversary of Martin Luther posting his complaints of the door of the Castle Church.  This event happened on October 31, 1517.  It should be fair to point out that when the citizens of Germany woke up on the morning of November 1, 1517, they weren’t debating whether they should go to a Protestant Church since they didn’t exist at the time.  Regardless, the reformation is erroneously fixed to this date in 1517 AD just like the Catholic/Greek Schism is erroneously dated to 1054 AD.
