Interfaith or Biblical Faith

Jan 17, 2017

There is one set of events happening all too often, while another one never seems to happen at all. The former has to do with Christian churches and Christian leaders bending over backwards to accommodate Islam. Nothing wrong with some

Islam, the Hijab, and Clueless Westerners

Jan 1, 2016

The Wheaton College professor who recently claimed that Christians and Muslims worship the same God certainly caused no small storm. It generated plenty of discussion and controversy, and the matter is certainly not yet resolved. I have already penned several

Wheaton, Islam, Christianity and Truth

Dec 19, 2015

The ongoing saga of the hijab-wearing Wheaton College professor is not likely to go away anytime soon. Indeed, it seems to be escalating, with various sides becoming polarised on all this. The prof has now been suspended by the Christian

Islam, Reform, and Traitors in Our Midst

Dec 9, 2015

Since the infamous 9/11 of 14 years ago there have been 27,401 Islamic terrorist attacks. Did you get that? These deadly attacks were not carried out by frustrated Baptists or disgruntled Buddhists. These attacks were carried out by devout Muslims

On Catholicism and Islam

Dec 7, 2015

If some folks – including many Catholics – have felt uneasy about some of the things the current Pope has said about Islam, they would be quite right to feel that way. Even allowing for a hostile secular media, when

Cluelessness is Not Next To Godliness

Nov 3, 2015

Tragically far too many believers seem to glide through life completely oblivious to the various wars and battles we are in, the array of enemies encircling us, and the ever increasing anti-Christian bigotry in the West. Everywhere the faith is

On Being Radical for God

May 4, 2015

In 1 Corinthians 10 Paul mentions some episodes from Israel’s life about how Yahweh judged them for their sins as recorded in parts of Exodus and Numbers. Then he says this in v. 6: “Now these things occurred as examples

The Horrific Costs of Syncretism

Apr 20, 2015

In the biblical sense, syncretism has to do with seeking to worship the one true God while also dragging elements of false religions into the mix. It is the vain attempt to worship Yahweh but also worship other gods. It

More Chrislam Idolatry

Mar 14, 2015

It is as if the Ten Commandments had never been written – or at least the first one. But given that they have been written, it is as if they were never read. That certainly seems to be the case

Despicable Dhimmitude

Dec 1, 2014

In an age of widespread deception, the need to tell the truth, and repeat the truth, becomes our highest duty. And one of the most important truths that needs to be stated again and again is this one: under Islam

Good Intentions Are No Match for Stupidity

Sep 28, 2014

Sometimes the most clueless and brainless people around are sadly those who call themselves Christians. They have such a warped understanding of their own faith that they can often say and do the most idiotic and unhelpful things imaginable.

Dumbfounding Dhimmitude

Jul 11, 2014

When they hand out prizes for mental and moral meltdowns, as well as prime examples of deluded dhimmitude, I would think this fellow could win hands down. He checks all the boxes for rank ignorance, damaging deception, paralysing political correctness,

No, We Are Not From the Same Faith Tradition

Jul 3, 2014

It is quite common for Muslim apologists and clueless Christians to ramble on about how the big three religions all have a common source, and that we are all really spiritual brothers. They claim that Islam, Christianity and Judaism all
