I have been working on a series of short radio spots to be broadcast as filler between programs. I hope to have these broadcast much like a Public Service Announcement. These are short messages intended to get Christians engaging with Muslims regarding spiritual matters. May the Lord be glorified in these messages, and His will be done.

In total I will be developing 30 or more of these over the next few months and will post here as I complete them.

Often today we hear that both Christians and Muslims worship the same God, the God of Abraham. Muslims trace their ideological roots back to Abraham through Ishmael, just as Jews and Christians trace their ideological roots back to Abraham through Isaac. Arabic-speaking Christians also worship a God they call Allah. In spite of these parallels, do Muslims and Christians both worship the God of Abraham as He is depicted in the Bible? And how should we respond to such a statement when we hear it. This short 14 minute video will provide you with the information you need to know.

 

Muslims sincerely believe Jesus made a prophecy of the coming of Muhammad, Islam's prophet. They get this notion from a verse in the Qur'an which has Jesus saying exactly this. Sura 61:6 of the Qur'an says, "And remember, Jesus, son of Mary, said, 'O Children of Israel! I am the messenger of Allah sent to you, confirming the law which came before me, and giving glad tidings of a Messenger to come after me, whose name shall be called Ahmed.'" And since Muslims believe the Qur'an to be the literal words of God, and since God in the Qur'an says Jesus predicted Muhammad, they go to great lengths to find a reference in the Bible where Jesus made such a prediction. They believe this prediction is found in John 14:26. How do we respond to such a challenge?

 

Muslims love to point to verses in the Bible they believe are references to the coming of Muhammad as another prophet of God. They get this idea from several verses in the Qur'an, but in particular Sura 7:157, which mentions "those who follow the Unlettered Prophet [euphemism for Muhammad] whom they find mentioned in their own Scripture - in the law and the Gospel..." 

Since the Qur'an says Muhammad's name can be found in the Bible - both Old and New Testament - and since Muslims believe the Qur'an to be God's word and God cannot lie, therefore Muhammad's name must be found in the Bible, both testaments. Muslims have scoured the Bible looking for anything resembling a possible reference to Muhammad. Here is a common they use quite often.

 

This is among the most common presentations I make when I speak at churches across the nation. A good general introduction to Islam, I cover the basics of what Muslims believe, spend a good amount of time discussing the differences between the Allah of Islam and the God of Christianity, and wrap up with tips, techniques, and suggestions for how to begin a conversation with a Muslim regarding spiritual issues.
