On September 29, 2010, ABC aired a one hour documentary called Islam: Questions and Answers. The goal of the program was to clear up misconceptions of Islam held in the minds of the American public.

Allah, Jinn, and Belief

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...

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...
Does Islam Permit Sex Slaves

Does Islam Permit Sex-Slaves?

There was a time that I was pathetically naive to certain verses of the Quran. You see, I would make excuses for Muhammad while I was a Muslim. I was taught a different understanding of the alleged “religion of peace” by my former Muslim brothers and sisters; oh how I was mislead, fooled—deceived.… 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...

Examining the Nature of Allah - Part 2

Is Allah a Just God? According to Islam, Allah is a god of justice. Many of the ninety-nine names of Allah imply justice as one of Allah’s attributes. Geisler and Saleeb, in their book Answering Islam, point to the following names: Continue Reading...

Five Things About the Qur'an

Muslims place much emphasis on the Qur'an as Muhammad's sole miracle, because an illiterate man could not have produced such a magnificent piece of literary excellence without divine inspiration. But is the Qur'an really an example of literary excellence? More important, is the Qur'an the Word of… Continue Reading...

Has Islam Been Hijacked?

A common claim by western Muslim apologists is that Islam has been hijacked by a handful of extremists who do not represent the true (orthodox) teachings of Islam and the prophet Muhammad. I have written extensively on the topic of jihad and developed an historical analysis on the topic. That… Continue Reading...
Quran Preserved?.jpg

Has the Quran Been Preserved?

Muslims are told and believe that the Quran they possess today is the very same Quran given to Muhammad over a 23 year period as the angel Gabriel revealed it. They believe the Quran to be the very words of Allah and thus perfectly perserved, because Allah would never let his own words fall into… Continue Reading...

Islam's Temple Mount Claim Illegitimate

Since a lot is stirring in Jerusalem, I wanted to drop a quick note to my friends to inform them of something which they may not be aware of. Please pay attention: this information will help you defeat the propaganda of Jerusalem also belonging to Muslims and Islam. Continue Reading...

Jihad: Separating Sheep from Goats

In Matthew 25 Jesus tells the parable of the sheep and the goats. With the sheep on his right side, the Son of Man tells them "Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was hungry and you gave Me food; I was thirsty and you gave Me… Continue Reading...

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...

Marriage & Divorce in Islam

A. Men Can Marry Up to Four Wives Sura 4:3 – If ye fear that ye shall not be able to deal justly with the orphans, Marry women of your choice, Two or three or four; Polygamy has always played a pivotal role in Islamic society. According to Islamic scholars, the roots of polygamy were noble.… 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 - 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...
Muhammad's Just in Time Revelations.png

Muhammad's Just In Time Revelations

Muhammad seemed to have quite a penchant for receiving revelation from Allah just-in-time to absolve him of misconduct. It seems quite astounding that an eternally existing heavenly scripture would contain revelation that applies only to one individual who lived in 7th century Arabia. Nevertheless,… Continue Reading...

Muslims, Jews, UNESCO, and the Temple Mount

Recently the United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) proposed and subsequently passed a resolution which virtually erases historic ties of Judaism to the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Of Allah, Satan, and Sin

Man as Vicegerent Islamic theology teaches that Allah created earth for man and man for earth. From the beginning of creation it was Allah's plan to send to earth a 'vicegerent' - an earthly representative of God, exercising delegated power over the earth on God's behalf. This idea comes from Sura… Continue Reading...

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...

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.

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

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...

The View of Women in Islam

To hear groups like the Council of American-Islamic Relations or the Islamic Society of North America, Islam holds women in high regard. Indeed, Souad Saleh, a female professor at Al-Ahzar University in Cairo and a vocal proponent of women's rights in Egypt, recently stated, "Islam is pure and… Continue Reading...

What Are the Satanic Verses?

Salman Rushdie wrote a book called The Satanic Verses in 1989. Immediately a fatwa, or religious ruling, was issued calling for the death of Rushdie, and a bounty of $2.5 million was placed on his head by the Ayatollah Khomeini, which remains in effect to this day. What exactly are the Satanic… Continue Reading...
Surah 5-32.jpg

What Does Sura 5:32 Really Mean?

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...
Who Wrote the Quran?.jpg

Who Wrote the Quran?

Islamic theology holds that the Qur'an, the uncreated, eternal tablets in heaven, were written by Allah himself. (Side note: If they are uncreated and eternal, how then could Allah have 'written' them?). The Qur'an Muslim hold today represent the literal words of Allah as dictated to Muhammad… Continue Reading...
