Christianity, Islam, Missions and the Crusades …

Posted on: August 27th, 2010 by Matt No Comments

Introduction

Christian History has some great moments and also some terrible moments. The Crusades (from roughly 1096 to 1291, though there were some ‘minor’ crusades after this time period) are a period of history that Christians are often denigrated and made to feel guilt over. Christians will readily agree with their opponents that many disgusting and barbaric things were done in the name of Christ during the Crusades against the Muslims and Jews. “But the crusaders were real Christians. They deplored their sins. They longed for forgiveness. They loved fellow Christians in the East. They yearned to do something noble and lasting for their Lord. They prayed and fasted before battles and praised God after victories. Their devotion and courage make ours look juvenile.”
This paper will explore the factors and events of the Crusades briefly with a focus specifically on how missions and the desire to win the unsaved for Christ are related to the Crusades are related. While there were no large missionary movements (at least during the first four Crusades), there were some who had the desire to lead the Muslims and others to Christ during this time period.

An Evaluation of the Qur’an

Posted on: January 26th, 2010 by Matt No Comments

The Qur’an is at the heart of Islam. If its claims can be substantiated, then Islam is true and all opposing religious claims, including those of Judaism and Christianity, are false. As we saw in Chapter 5, the Qur’an claims to be the verbally inspired Word of God, copied from the original in heaven. Furthermore, other religious claims to the contrary, the Qur’an claims to be the full and final revelation of God through Muhammad, the last and greatest of the prophets who supersedes Moses, Jesus, and all other prophets before him.

An Evaluation of Muhammad

Posted on: January 26th, 2010 by Matt No Comments

We have already set forth the Muslim belief that Muhammad is the last of the prophets, who brought forth the full and final revelation of God to humankind (see Chapter 4). The fact that the Qur’an declares itself to be God’s last word, superseding all other revelations and religions—indeed, the claim that Muhammad is a prophet of God, a belief held by one-fifth of the world’s population—commands our attention.

Muhammad’s Prophetic Claim

The Nature of a Prophet

In order to properly evaluate Muhammad’s claim to be a prophet of God, we need to review what is meant by a prophet.

Who Was Muhammad?

Posted on: January 22nd, 2010 by Matt 1 Comment

As pointed out by Ibn Warraq in his landmark work, The Quest for the Historical Muhammad, the “Muhammad” of faith and religion is not the Muhammad of fact and history. Modern Muslims have a legendary and mythological view of the character and life of Muhammad that is in direct contradiction of all the historical accounts.

Solution to Terrorism

Posted on: January 22nd, 2010 by Matt 1 Comment

It is Time for Tough Love

America is at war whether we like it or not. The days to come do not bode well for the property and lives of Americans overseas or here at home. The specter of a nuclear and biological attack looms large on the horizon. Liberals are more concerned about protecting the feelings of Muslims than protecting the lives of Americans. If loyal Americans do not rise up and demand that the present government fulfill its constitutional duty to protect the lives and property of the citizens of this great land, who will?

Top Questions About Islam

Posted on: January 22nd, 2010 by Matt 1 Comment

Question #l—Is “Allah” just another name for God?

Answer: Yes and No. It all depends on what you mean by “Allah.” If you view it as a generic term, this means it is an empty term denoting nothing except the bare concept of “deity.” When a word can mean anything and everything, then it means nothing. The Hindu pantheist could use the word “Allah” to describe the entire universe. Louis Farrakhan uses it to describe himself. It can be applied to idols.

Four Faces of Islam

Four Faces of Islam: Before and After the Terrorist Attack upon America

Introduction

After teaching Muslim clergy at the Faculty of Islamic Theology of the University of Teheran, Iran, during 1968–1974, and after attending preaching and praying events in dozens of mosques around the world, and after hours of discussions with Muslims in their homes and mosques and around tables of food and cups of tea, I am in agreement with Nobel Prize in Literature winner V. S. Naipaul when he writes, “Islam is not simply a matter of conscience or private belief. It makes imperial demands.”

The Doctrine of Heaven

Posted on: January 6th, 2010 by Matt No Comments

The Doctrine of Heaven (Paradise)
Behind the Veil of Islam

At best, the doctrine of heaven can be a source of inspiration, incentive and comfort. At its worst, the impetus to go to a particular heaven after death can be an effective tool for great evil, coercion and manipulation. Recent acts of terrorism have only too painfully revealed to us that if you can mesmerize a few radical extremists to believe in a certain heaven, you can get them to do anything. “In the 00’s, a decade known so far for its calamities, the question of what heaven is and who gets to go has taken on a new urgency. Suicide bombs and terrorists…often invoke heaven before they act and, afterward, the survivors invoke heaven to guide them forward.”

Judgment and Hell Behind the Veil of Islam

Posted on: January 6th, 2010 by Matt No Comments

There are more than one billion people in the world who now claim to believe in the writings of the revelations given to the prophet Muhammad who lived in the 7th century AD. What does Islam teach about life after death, judgment, and hell?

Death is a great mystery to most people. According to Islam, at the moment of death, everyone knows his or her destiny; heaven or hell. In Islam, man is not seen as essentially fallen or sinful. Islam teaches that people are born innocent and remain so until each makes himself or herself guilty by a guilty deed. As a result, there is an all-pervasive Quranic concern and insistence on a day of judgment at the end of history when all will be held accountable for their beliefs and actions.

The Trinity And Christian Missions To Muslims

Posted on: January 1st, 2010 by Matt No Comments

  Islam has engaged the attention of Christians ever since its rise in Arabia in the seventh century. One obvious reason is the fact that most early Muslim conquests took place within Christian lands. “The People of the Book,” as Jews and Christians were called, faced the choice of adopting the faith of their conquerors, or of remaining in their particular religion. Those who persisted in their Christian commitment gave a reason for this decision. They could not, and would not forsake the biblical Messiah, their Lord and Savior. By implication, they refused to believe in the “heavenly” mission of Muhammad who claimed to be God’s final messenger commissioned to call the world to Islam. From the beginning of the Christian-Muslim encounter, the main debate centered on these fundamental teachings: the authenticity of the Christian Scriptures, the person and work of Jesus Christ, and the doctrine of the Holy Trinity.
