Muslims, please read this first

man praying islamAssalamu alaikum

Christians and Muslims disagree on the nature of God, salvation, prophets, the true Scriptures, etc.  For the great majority of us on both sides, we will not change our views. You believe in Allah and Muhammad as his prophet. I am a Christian, saved by the grace of my Lord and Savior, Jesus. In obedience to Christ and according to the Bible, I seek to expose error and teach the truth . . . and, as a Christian, I teach that Christianity is true. Therefore, Islam cannot be right. I say this outright so that no Muslim will accuse me of being deceptive or having a hidden agenda. My goal is to convert Muslims to Christ, so they may find salvation in Him.

However, please realize that I have no hatred for Muhammad, Muslims, or the Koran. I was not wronged by a Muslim, and I have not had any childhood trauma involving anything Islamic. Instead, as a Christian, I seek to bring glory to the Lord Jesus, and in so doing, I must teach that Islam is false because it contradicts the Bible. If you are a Muslim, I know you will disagree, and perhaps you will take it as an insult or some form of persecution. I hope you do not. But, I am simply being faithful to my Lord Jesus in defending His truth as revealed in the Bible.

I realize that there are many good Muslims in the world who are peaceful, honest, compassionate, and who desire to serve God in truth. I do not fault any Muslim for this. Likewise, I hope you will not find fault with my honest intention to do the same according to the convictions of my heart since I seek to serve God. You may condemn me as an infidel and that is fine. But, my hope for salvation is not found in Islam and its balance of good works versus bad works. Instead, it is found in the work of Jesus who died on the cross and rose from the dead.

Nevertheless, if I mistakenly misrepresent Islam on this site, I take full responsibility for it. It is not my desire to produce a false image of Islam and then attempt to destroy the false image. I only ask that you let me know in what area I have erred (with documentation), and I shall do my best to correct it--within reason. I say "within reason" because a difference of opinion on a matter does not warrant a correction. But, if I have some error in facts, definition, dates, or doctrines of Islam, I would appreciate being corrected.

I do not seek to attack and call Muslims names or use emotional and poorly reasoned arguments as "proofs" for my position--as too many Christians have attempted in the past. Rather, I seek to know Islam truthfully, to convey a factual and honest representation of it to readers, and, of course, to tackle its errors as it is compared to the Bible.

Therefore, these pages will be somewhat fluid in that they will be refined over time.

My only desire is that you find the forgiveness of Jesus and the love of God that abounds in my heart and the hearts of His redeemed people.

By the grace of Christ Jesus, my Savior.
