Are the Gospels like the Hadiths?

Some Christian apologists when trying to describe the Gospels to the Muslims, claim that the Gospels are much like the Hadiths, in that the Gospels were written-collected by men, and are based on the sayings-teachings of Jesus just as the Hadiths are with the Prophet Muhammad (peace be upon them both).

Muslims reject the Trinity because they do understand it

Certain Christian apologists these days like to claim that Muslims don’t properly understand or grasp the Trinity, and it is because of this that Muslims therefore reject the Trinity.

Missionary myths refuted: Jesus was a pacifist (3)

(2) Missionary myths refuted: Does the biblical God love everybody?

One common claim made by missionaries while they often preach, is that the biblical God loves everybody.

There is a big problem with this however, and it is a problem that Christian apologists have… Read More ›
