(0)
October 22, 2014

According to the Bible God cannot be tempted: When tempted, no one should say, “God is tempting me.” For God cannot be tempted by evil, nor does he tempt anyone (James 13:1) Jesus however according to the gospels was tempted, and more problematic is that he was tempted by none other than the devil: Then… Read More ›

If the Jewish Bible foretold of Jesus’ death and resurrection, why was nobody expecting it?

Christian apologists constantly claim that Jesus’ mission was foretold in the Old Testament. Things like the messiah coming and dying the sins of mankind, and then resurrecting after three days, was all prophesized by the prophets of old. There is a big problem with this however, and it is a problem that Christian apologists have… Read More ›

The problem with the Gospel of Luke

Christian missionaries claim that the four gospels are four separate eyewitness accounts of what took place during Jesus’ lifetime, written by those who witnessed what happened, and afterwards decided to write and record the events of Jesus’ life.

How ISIS are following the Bible

Islam doesn’t require perfection- How Islam deals with sin

Evangelical Christians often try to put Islam down by saying there is no atonement for sin in Islam, that in Islam sinners can simply be forgiven by God and sent to heaven by being a good person. For Evangelicals this cannot be, God simply can’t forgive a person of their sin without atonement, the sin… Read More ›

Is Jesus (pbuh) superior to Muhammad (pbuh) because he didn’t lift a sword?

There are many Christian apologists that often like to say that Jesus, unlike Muhammad (peace be upon them both) never raised the sword, that Jesus unlike Muhammad (pbub) never went into battle, and never participated in wars. And without really elaborating more, they conclude that due to this, this makes Jesus more superior than Muhammad… Read More ›

Does the Quran plagiarise from the Bible?

It’s a common assertion to sometimes hear missionaries and some Jewish critics making the claim that the Quran plagiarizes from the Bible.

Zara Faris on ‘The Quran: The Divine Quality Control Over Previous Scriptures’

Many have asked the interesting question ‘what is the Quran’s relationship with previous scriptures?’. This question can be answered by the Quran itself: And unto thee O Prophet have We vouchsafed this divine writ, setting forth the truth, confirming the truth of whatever there still remains of earlier revelations and determining what is true therein.

Christians Naturally Distrust and Disbelieve in the New Testament

Wallace, James White to the Liberals such as Dr. Crossan have implicitly conceded to their distrust of the New Testament text.

Can any Christian be certain of Christianity’s Doctrine of Salvation?

For most, the answer would be yes. They’ve confessed and professed their faith in the life, death and resurrection of Jesus the Christ. They faithfully read the scriptures (Old and New Testaments) and attend Church gatherings regularly to engage in prayer and worship. However, I intend to raise an honest question to the Christian – how… Read More ›

The fallacies of Dr William Lane Craig’s argument for the Trinity

‘As the greatest conceivable being, God must be perfect. Now a perfect being must be a loving being. For love is a moral perfection; it is better for a person to be loving rather than unloving.

‘We Lost the Name of God’ – Christians + Jews

While authoring this article, I came across an odd admission from the famous Christian exegete, Adam Clarke. In his commentary on 2 Corinthians 12, he states: The Jews thought that the Divine name, the Tetragrammaton Yehovah, should not be uttered, and that it is absolutely unlawful to pronounce it; indeed they say that the true pronunciation is utterly lost, and cannot… Read More ›
