DEBATE CHALLENGE TO MUSLIM METAPHYSICIAN PT. 1

This begins a series of posts to a pseudo-intellectual Muhammadan named Jake who calls himself Muslim “Metaphysician”. I am preparing this material since I am openly challenging him to debate me on the Quran’s view of the Trinity and whether Islamic tauhid is logically consistent.    I begin my series by refuting his assertion that […]

PLIGHT OF NON-MUSLIMS IN AN ISLAMIC STATE

The following citations will give the readers of what life would be like under Islamic rule.

Koranic Criticism: 700 C.E. to 825 C.E.

The following is taken from the post: Koranic Criticism: 700 C.E. to 825 C.E. > Ibn Warraq. Muslim scholars themselves, particularly acute and brilliant commentators like Zamakshari, Tabari, and al-Suyuti, made important observations on the Koran but they were all, of course, working within the Islamic framework, and thus were severely limited in their conclusions. Philosophers, […]

“The Form of a god”? The Translation of Morphē Theou in Philippians 2:6

Robert M. Bowman Jr. August 15, 2014 The penchant of Jehovah’s Witnesses for rendering the common Greek word for “God,” theos, as “a god” when it applies to Jesus Christ is well known. Most famously, the New World Translation (NWT) translates the last clause of John 1:1 “and the Word was a god.” Along the same […]

The Early Church Fathers on 1 Corinthians 3

The ancient writers of the faith all interpret 1 Corinthians 3 as a purification that occurs in the afterlife. -William Albrecht Cyprian of Carthage (200s) It is one thing to stand for pardon, another thing to attain to glory: it is one thing, when cast into prison, not to go out thence until one has […]

The New World Translation Proves Jesus Reigns as Jehovah in Heaven!

Unless indicated otherwise I will be employing the New World Translation of the Holy Scriptures (2013 Revision). The readers can access the Jehovah’s Witnesses’ (JWs) various Bible translations from their website: Online Bible. In this post I am going to apply the Society’s own reasoning, which they employ to disprove the eternal Deity of Christ, against them. I […]

The Garbled-Up Quran: Muhammad’s Confusion of Figures and Names

The Quran claims to be a fully detailed scripture that clearly explains all things that it references: [Say (O Muhammad)] “Shall I seek a judge other than Allah while it is He Who has sent down unto you the Book (The Qur’an), explained in detail.” Those unto whom We gave the Scripture [the Taurat (Torah) and the Injeel (Gospel)] know […]

MESSIANIC PROPHECIES SERIES PT. 2

I continue from where I previously left off: https://answeringallah.com/messianic-prophecies-series-pt-1/ Second Prophecy: The Messianic Star from Egypt. In the book of numbers the Holy Spirit inspired a false prophet named Balaam to see and proclaim the coming of a Ruler from Jacob, whom Balaam described as a Star that arises and shall come forth out of Egypt: […]

JOHN 17:3 AND THE ONLY TRUE GOD

COMMENTARY Jesus states emphatically that eternal life is this:  Knowing the Father in an intimate way as well as His Son.  Salvation depends on knowing both Father and Son.  Jesus is the “way, the truth, and the life.”  No one comes to the Father but through the Son, for it is the Son who “explains” the Father, […]

1 COR. 8 AND JEHOVAH’S WITNESSES

COMMENTARY Paul draws a contrast between false deities and the Father and Son.  Whereas the pagan deities are false, there is to us “one God, the Father”, and “one Lord, Jesus Christ”. He maintains a distinction of Personality between the Father and Son by assigning a different title of Deity to each, while at the same […]
