50 Prayers.jpg

50 Righteous or 50 Prayers?

When Christians begin studying Islam, it becomes clear very quickly that Muhammad borrowed or incorporated many ideas from Christianity and the Bible into the Qur'an and Islamic teaching. Parallels, both overt and subtle, can be found in common to both Christianity and Islam. One such borrowed idea… Continue Reading...

Apologetics & Polemics

Followers of Jesus Christ have been ridiculed, harrassed, persecuted, and scorned since the days of the original apostles of Jesus. Today Christianity is under attack from both secular and religious groups. Atheists such as Richard Dawkins, author of The God Delusion, and Christopher Hitchens,… Continue Reading...

Blood Dreams From Jesus

There is a divine explosion of dreams and visions entering the human realm in the Middle East amongst Muslims. God is penetrating the intellect and hearts of Muslims and with the blood of Christ. Ravi Zacharias, an Indian-born Canadian-American and apologist has commented on these profound… Continue Reading...

Christians & Muslims: Do They Worship the Same God?

A common misconception among the uninformed is that Muslims worship the same God as Christians. Many well-meaning church leaders have been accused of saying this, among them Rick Warren and Brian Houston. Both have denied the charge, but both created quite a controversy around this issue. Former… Continue Reading...

Contradictions in the Bible?

Several years ago a well-known Muslim apologist, Shabir Ally, published a paper called "101 Clear Contradictions in the Bible" which has taken a life of its own. This paper was given to Jay Smith during a debate between the two. 101 Clear Contradictions has been republished on many Islamic… Continue Reading...

Debating a Muslim - Part 1

Recently I was engaged in a lengthy discussion via email with a Muslim man from the UK. He began the exchange by posting a comment to a video I had uploaded to YouTube. I won’t bore you with the initial conversation, but he was basically challenging me regarding the context of several violent… Continue Reading...
Defending the Resurrection

Defending the Resurrection

What has made the Christian faith so popular? Is it the virgin birth of Jesus, His awe-inspiring miracles, or His philosophical sayings echoing divine truth? All of these put Jesus in an exclusive place in human history, and all are a part of His story. But for the Christian and the non-believer… Continue Reading...
Jesus Claim to be God?.jpg

Did Jesus Claim to be God?

I recently attended a debate at a local university between Muslim and Christian representatives. During the Q&A after the debate one Muslim student went to the microphone to ask; "If Jesus really was God, why didn't he just say so! Where does Jesus say, 'I am God, worship me.'" This is one of many… Continue Reading...
Jesus Rose from the Dead 2.jpg

Did Jesus Rise from the Dead?

As I write this, we will celebrate tomorrow the 1,979th anniversary of the resurrection of Jesus Christ after his crucifixion. For atheists, agnostics, and skeptics, the resurrection account cannot possibly be true. They hold this opinion for varied reasons, but probably the two most common are: Continue Reading...

Did Jesus Rise From The Dead?: The Evidence

Introduction One of the greatest challenges for the Christian faith involves the veracity of the resurrection account. Atheists and skeptics have little problem acknowledging the existence of Jesus, and even the fact he died by crucifixion on a cross. But many doubt the Biblical account of his… Continue Reading...

Elijah and the Prophets of Baal: Today's Version

Not long ago I was standing with some friends outside a mosque, handing out literature to Muslims exiting from their Friday service. Things were going well when suddenly a large man came out from the mosque and encountered one of my friends, an older gentleman. The Muslim man said, "You think your… Continue Reading...
Ccyrus Cylinder.jpg

Historical Accuracy of the Bible: Cyrus

I recently had a chance to view the Cyrus Cylinder as it made a tour through the USA on loan from the British Museum. The Cyrus Cylinder is an amazing piece of archeology, for it not only tells us about some of the history associated with the Persian Empire, but it also validates the historical… Continue Reading...
How Reliable is the Bible?.jpg

How Reliable is the Bible?

"Can the Bible be trusted?" This question is asked daily by atheists, skeptics, agnostics, and a host of other critics of Christianity. Muslims take the question one step further, asserting that the Bible we have today is a corrupt version of the original given by God to mankind, and that only the… Continue Reading...
Love When It's Hard.jpg

Love When It's Hard

"Should we love those who hate us?" That is the question I posed to one of my classes recently. The answer is a resounding "Yes!" because this is what Jesus taught and lived himself as an example for us. But what if the question concerned someone who seemingly was unlovable, someone like Osama bin… Continue Reading...
Qur'an vs. Bible.png

Morals & Ethics: Muhammad or Jesus?

Islam and Christianity are said to have many beliefs in common. Indeed, these common beliefs often form the basis of Christian-Muslim dialog as Christians build bridges to friendship with Muslims based on these shared beliefs. Both believe that God provides guidance for mankind through the books of… Continue Reading...
Muhammad in the Bible.jpg

Muhammad in the Bible - Part 1

Are there predictions or prophecies of Muhammad in the Bible? If you ask a Muslim this question you will get a resounding "yes!" Muslims must believe this because they believe the Qur'an to be the absolute and infallible word of God, and the Qur'an says Muhammad is found in the Bible. Continue Reading...
Muhammad in the Bible.jpg

Muhammad in the Bible - Part 2

As I mentioned in part 1 of this series, Muslim apologists use every imaginable tactic they can devise in an attempt to find verses in the Bible which, purportedly, speak about Muhammad as a coming prophet. They must find these verses because Muslims believe the Qur'an to be the infallible,… Continue Reading...
Psalm Sunday - Prophecy Fulfilled.jpg

Palm Sunday: Prophecy Fulfilled

One area where the Bible far outshines the Quran and proves itself to be inspired by God is in the area of foreknowledge of future events. We call it prophecy. One such prophecy concerns Palm Sunday, the day Jesus rode into Jerusalem on the back of a donkey to proclaim himself as Messiah to Israel.… Continue Reading...

Paul vs. James: Faith or Works?

A common objection raised against Christianity by Muslims, as well as other non-Christian cults, is that of the role of works in the life of a Christian. Islam teaches a works-centered salvation based on keeping the traditional five pillars of Islam as well as thousands of other rules and… Continue Reading...
Questions for Muslims 2.jpg

Questions for Muslims

Introduction Muslim apologists are quick to point to doctrines in Christianity that seem difficult to understand, and at the same time wax eloquent regarding the simplicity and complete coherence of Islamic doctrine. The trinity, for example, is incoherent according to Islam: how can three be one?… Continue Reading...
Bible Reliability.jpg

Reliability of Scripture

In my studies of various religious beliefs over the past few years I have discovered that many of them have similar ideas when it comes to critiquing or criticizing the basic tenets of Christianity. One such commonly held belief is that the Bible of Christianity has been corrupted over time and… Continue Reading...

Responding to a Muslim Critic

Mohammad is a Muslim in the UK who frequently sends me private messages via my YouTube channel. Recently he sent me a rather lengthy critique of one of my videos. The video is a recording of a message I commonly give when I have one Sunday or Wednesday at a church, as a general introduction to… Continue Reading...
Salvation in Islam & Christianity.jpg

Salvation in Islam & Christianity

Islam and Christianity differ in significant and fundamental ways. Many of these differences can be seen to be in direct contrast to one another. The Law of Non-Contradiction states that a thing and its opposite cannot both be true at the same time and in the same sense. Thus, theological… Continue Reading...

The Bible, the Quran, and Christmas

When Christmas comes each year, help a Muslim understand who Jesus was: God With Us! From the Bible and the Qur'an:Isaiah 7:14 - Therefore the Lord Himself will give you a sign: Behold, the virgin shall conceive and bear a Son, and shall call His name Immanuel. Continue Reading...
Crucifixion of Jesus.jpg

The Crucifixion of Jesus

Was Jesus Crucified on the Cross? What the Qur'an Says Sura 4:157 - They said "We killed Christ Jesus, The son of Mary, The Messenger of Allah." But they killed him not, nor crucified him. But so it was made to appear to them. And those who differ therein are full of doubts, with no certain… Continue Reading...

The Remarkable Preservation of The Bible

Is The Bible Corrupted? One of the most common arguments voiced by Muslims toward Christians is the issue of scriptural integrity. Muslims will argue that the Bible has been corrupt or lost, that the original gospel given to Jesus is no longer available or trustworthy. According to Islam, the… Continue Reading...

The Resurrection of Jesus: Thoughts of a Former Muslim

Where does a Muslim find their hope? I ask because Easter is coming in a few days. There was a time while in Christianity, when I celebrated the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. But once I became a Muslim, the resurrection became pagan to me. There is no cross in Islam, so there is no… Continue Reading...

Verses Muslims Abuse: John 10:34

Here is yet another example where Muslims attempt to use a bible verse to disprove the deity of Jesus. They quote John 10:34-36, which reads: "Jesus answered them, "Is it not written in your law, 'I said, You are gods?' If he called them gods to whom the word of God came -- and scripture cannot be… Continue Reading...

Verses Muslims Abuse: John 17:3

Muslims go to great lengths to disprove the deity of Jesus Christ. After all, since the Qur'an denies the deity of Jesus, so must every good Muslim, regardless what it takes including scriptural gymnastics. Muslims use the Bible to prove that Jesus was not God, nor did he ever claim to be God.… Continue Reading...

Verses Muslims Abuse: John 5:30

Muslims go to great lengths to disprove the deity of Jesus Christ. After all, since the Qur'an denies the deity of Jesus, so must every good Muslim, regardless what it takes including scriptural gymnastics. Muslims use the Bible to prove that Jesus was not God, nor did he ever claim to be God.… Continue Reading...
Jesus Said I Am God?.jpg

Where Does Jesus Say I Am God?

Christians who interact with Muslims quite often face this question: Where does Jesus say 'I am God, worship me?' Or a slightly different form: 'Is it right for Christians to worship Jesus, since God alone should be worshipped?' Continue Reading...

Which Gabriel Visited Muhammad?

When Muhammad first began receiving revelation he thought to be from Allah, it was the angel Gabriel who brought Allah's message to him. Or so at least that's what Muhamamd thought. But was it actually Gabriel? Continue Reading...
Allah God of Bible?.jpg

Who is Allah: Is He the God of the Bible?

I wrote this initially as a message for the Jr. High School students at my local church. In California, students in the public school system begin learning about Islam as part of their history curriculum. The textbooks used most frequently in public schools tend to cast Islam in glowing terms,… Continue Reading...
Who is Jesus to You

Who Is Jesus to YOU?

So, you think you know Jesus? At one time, I thought I knew Jesus, I believed he was the Son of God and even preached this truth, but I did not have a relationship with him. I abandoned Christianity and accepted Islam. In the Islamic faith, I believed in a different Jesus, a prophetic Jesus who is… Continue Reading...
Four Gospels.jpg

Who Wrote the Gospels?

Not long ago I was talking with a group of Muslims from Somalia at a coffee shop in Northern Virginia. Along the way the conversation turned to the gospel accounts of Jesus, which provide us the best information on Jesus: who He claimed to be, who the Jews thought he was, what the Jewish leaders… Continue Reading...
