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.
I had two experiences recently. The first experience was on a Muslim apologetics blog and looking at the comments. There was this really anti-Christian Muslim commenting on Christianity. He essentially said that Christianity doesn’t care about Law and good works. After challenging him, he started to misquote the Bible and naturally blamed this on Paul.
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.
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:
Islamic apologists have often appealed to Hebrews 5:7 for support that Jesus Christ was not crucified or didn’t die. The most recent person to do this is Zakir Hussain in his recent debate against James White. Here is what the verse says:
So here is what happened. Dr. James White recently debated British Muslim apologist Zakir Hussain on whether or not Jesus was crucified. Zakir Hussain clearly won this debate. He didn’t win because his arguments were good, in fact, they were the exact opposite. They were arguments that were on par with Matthew Vines arguments for the Biblical blessing of homosexual relationships. They were that bad.
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.
Have you ever heard of Omar Khadr? He’s a Canadian born Muslim Jihadi who fought with the Taliban. He killed an American medic and blinded another in Afghanistan. Watch the video that I’ve provided above if you want to learn all of the details.
A lot is going on in our world right now. This year has been brutal in terms of terrorist attacks. The two attacks in London yesterday are only the most recent example. We could also talk about the increasing secularization of Western society which has been plaguing us since the French Revolution, though it seems like recently it’s been put in fast forward. Many things could be talked about. However, instead of talking about the problems, I’m going to talk about the solution.
I have responded to Matt Slick in the past. Not long ago, I wrote a piece against his views on the Deuterocanonical books of the Old Testament. Since Slick has criticized many other doctrines of the Catholic Church, I thought that I would respond to some of them. Today I will tackle his argument that Mary cannot be the Queen of Heaven in Revelation 12:1-2. His article on this issue can be found here:
