Responding to Christianity's Critics

Posts tagged “Muhammad

Of Gods and Men

This post stems from the abundance of misinformation and subterfuge that is passed off as Christian doctrine around the internet by Muslim apologists. I would rather believe that they just sincerely lack the basest understanding of the Christian religion than to think that they, with full knowledge, lie and mislead their Muslim audience in such a fashion. I say this because I have yet to hear or read of any Muslim apologist that can state, for example, the doctrine of the Holy Trinity, the incarnation, the idea of the Christian liberty, etc. as Christians themselves believe these and then attack it with any semblance of logic to show that, as Christians believe these things to be, they are wholly unintelligible (Here’s looking at you Ahmed Deedat, Zakir Naik, Shabir Ally, Joshua Evans etc.) and just plainly wrong. What’s worse is that I find the same lack of understanding from Christian converts to Islam, to the point where I have to honestly wonder whether it was their lack of knowledge which led to their apostatizing (Hosea 4:6) or whether all their prior knowledge on these matters is somehow dissolved in the process of their recitation of the Shahada? Therefore this post is dedicated to help dispel some common myths on the matter of Christian doctrine. (more…)

Re: Does the Bible recognize equality between men and women?

This is a response to an article by one Ruwayda Mustafah which can be found here. Therein the author makes the argument, and does her best to support this biblically, that according to the bible, women are ontologically inferior to men. I mean this to (hopefully) be a rather quick response to her most pertinent points seeing as, lo and behold, it’s midnight and here am I with nothing better to do than to blog; once again. (more…)


Re: Was Muhammad Inspired by God?

edit: Three times now I have left a nice, respectful comment to the author of whose post to which this reply is aimed at and three times now he has deleted my comments. They claim to wish to be let known of any holes in their argument and yet when I completely refute their argument, they are quick to hide this from their Muslim audience. It’s telling that they’d want to lie not only to themselves, but fellow Muslims as well—telling indeed.

On perusing the internet, I came across this article which claims to prove that Muhammad was neither a madman nor inspired by Satan. Now the article divides itself between a section aimed at a general audience and another to refute a specific Christian claim—namely, that Muhammad was inspired by Satan. I would encourage all Christians to read it in order to see how gravely most Muslims misunderstand the Christian message and YHWH—the only true God. (more…)


Joshua Evans: Ex-Christian Pt. I

This is the first in what I hope to be a series of Christian responses to our critics. I choose to focus on Joshua Evans’ lecture entitled “How the Bible led me to Islam” (which can be found here). Joshua himself is an ex-Methodist who used to be a youth minister and then subsequently left Christianity at age 17 (?). The previous link leads to a different video in which Joshua gives a brief explanation of his journey to Islam and his misgivings with Christianity. Not that I wish to focus on this video too much but I should mention that he is presented as an expert on Christianity so it does come off as a great surprise that he does not know what it is that Methodists actually believe.
