Western Converts to Islam

Hamza Tzortis – A Western Convert to Islam

Historically the West has always been firmly opposed to Islam.  This is because of the strong Christian Tradition of the West.  Unfortunately, the strength of the faith in the West is a mere shadow of its former self.  I’ve never met a Western convert to Islam before but there are Western converts.  Having reflected on the arguments for Islam and Christianity, I find the arguments for Islam to be overall very weak.  The Islamic sources show a very poor understanding of the two religions that it’s trying to usurp.

Zakir Hussain Commits Shirk

I’ve been watching a lot of Zakir Hussain debates lately as he seems to be the new superstar apologist over in England.  He has debated James White twice.  The second time was recent and I’ve done a few posts on that debate.  The first time was back in 2012 where he debated Dr. White on whether or not Muhammad is foretold in the Bible.  I should point out that I don’t think that Zakir Hussain has been in a debate with cross examination.  That would be interested to see him defend his theories under firm questioning.

Muhammad isn’t “altogether lovely” in Song of Solomon

The supposed name of Muhammad in Song of Solomon 5:16

Recently a Muslim apologist named Faiz tried to refute a blog post that I made about Muhammad in Song of Solomon 5:16.  He didn’t even try to refute my points in my post but tried to make Muhammad into a type of Solomon.  Here is his article:

Muhammad, Islam, and the Church

Jesus and Peter

Catholics and Protestants agree on a lot of things but at the same time we disagree on a lot of things.  One is the interpretation of Matthew 16:18.  The KJV reads:

And I say also unto thee, That thou art Peter, and upon this rock I will build my church; and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it.

Has anyone ever wondered as to what the Islamic interpretation is regarding this verse?  Muslims believe that Jesus is a Prophet so they have to believe in what he says, including this verse.

Responding to Paul Williams on Acts 2:22

Hello everyone!  I just came back from vacation and am now ready to resume posting my apologetic material.  I will post some pictures and video soon for all too see.  Recently my attention has been drawn to Islamic Apologist Paul Williams.  He has been making short apologetics videos.  Paul, if you’re listening, I must admit that I really like your videos.  They’re well done, high quality and give a good indication of what Christians can expect from top Islamic apologists.  Naturally, I expected Bart Ehrman to be quoted quite a bit.  However, as a Christian I encourage you to make more of these videos.

Anglicanism and History

King Henry VIII – Founder of the Anglican Religion

The year 2017 is the 500th anniversary of what is called the Reformation.  One Church that emerged from the Reformation was the Anglican Church.  Of all the traditional forms of Protestantism, I loathe Anglicanism the most.  I feel this way because the Anglican religion was founded on lies and theft.  

Let No Man Deceive You With Vain Words…or Bogus Statistics

Elijah the Prophet

If you’re a religious conservative living in the anti-Christian West, you’ve probably heard this argument put forward by either secular or “Christian” liberals.  It goes something like this: Did you know X% of Christians/Catholics believe in this or that liberal idea that goes contrary to the Traditional Christian faith.  Yes, polling has become an idol for liberals and apostates.  It reveals their true liberal agenda as well.  They don’t want to destroy Christianity, they want to ruin it and marvel in it’s defeat.  I don’t know about you but I know that true Christianity will exist until the end of time.  Liberals will never be able to defeat it.  After all, who is more powerful: liberals or the Holy Spirit?

Scholasticism and the Russian Language

My Russian Bible

I’m a student of the Russian language. A few days ago I was in a class and my teacher explained a concept.  It was a tough concept and I wanted to understand it perfectly.  I simply kept asking questions one after another.  I wanted to make sure that I understood the semantic domain of the words when this rule is used and if there were any exceptions to this rule.  After several minutes, looking flustered, she looked up at me and said: “Why are you asking so many questions?”

Happy Canada Day: Patriotism and Catholicism

Happy Canada Day!  To my non-Canadian readers, let me inform you that today is Canada Day; the anniversary of the birth of our nation, similar to what July 4 is to Americans.  Today, Canada turns 150 years old.  This may seem impressive but in the end does it really matter?  Although I am a tax paying citizen of Canada, my earthly citizenship is far less relevant compared to my eternal citizenship.  I’m also a member of the Catholic Church, an organization that has existed since the New Testament and will continue to exist until the end of time.  Canada can’t beat that.
